Products I will Always Repurchase

Tuesday, February 16, 2016

Everyone has those tried and tested beauty products that they can rely on again and again. And always fall back in love after not using them for a while. After exploring make-up for a good few years, I can finally say I have found my holy grails. The products I will always repurchase, and these are my top picks. 

NARS Tinted Moisturiser // Maybelline Dream Fresh BB
If you want fresh and glowing skin, a velvety smooth base and still a decent amount of coverage then the NARS tinted moisturiser is definitely for you. It's simply the perfect everyday base and when applied with the NARS oil free pro prime it works like a dream. If you're on a budget the Maybelline offering is another one of my favourites, with 8 in 1 benefits it hydrates the skin and leaves you with a natural looking glow. Both options also contain SPF too, which makes them perfect for the upcoming warmer weather months!

Benefit Porefessional // Maybelline Baby Skin
As someone who unfortunately suffers with quite large pores, the Benefit Porefessional range has been an absolute godsend for my skin. It smooths, blurs and evens out my pores leaving me with a softer, healthier and more naturally looking base. My favourite drugstore alternative to this definitely has to be the Maybelline Baby Skin. As it is a silicone based formula it really helps to hydrate the skin too!

Benefit Gimme Brow // Maybelline Brow Drama
Everyone loves a good brow product and on an everyday basis I like to have something really quick and easy I can use to still give my brows shape but still look quite natural and 'fluffy' at the same time. That's when these two gels come in. Benefit Gimme Brow features quite a small handle, making it relatively easy to add a touch of volume to even the sparsest of brows without going overboard either. This also doesn't set too dry, leaving my brows feel soft and fluffy rather than hard and tacky. The Maybelline offering comes with a larger brush so I'd definitely recommend applying with quite a light hand, although when careful this gives such a lovely finish to the brows.

MAC Brow Creme
Although I love my gels to fill in my brows, I couldn't be without my MAC brow creme to outline them. Using a Real Techniques eyeliner brush, I gently glide this around the edge of my brow to create shape and really get those arches looking lifted. With such a creamy formula this is so effortlessly to apply, I'm in love.

NARS Stick Concealer // Collection Lasting Perfection
If you've been following me for a while now then you will probably be sick to death of me raving about this NARS concealer so I won't go into too much detail but this stuff is seriously SO good. With its flat top edge, it makes concealing the brows a dream. If you want crisp, defined and lifted arches then this concealer is the one for you. If you're on a budget, Collection's Lasting Perfection concealer is perfect for brightening both the under eyes and the brows. With such a creamy formula, it's no wonder this cult blogger's favourite is often compared to the NARS radiant creamy and if not, is even better.

Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick // NARS Audacious Lipstick 
The quality and pigmentation of both of these lipsticks is genuinely insane. I worn the Chanel lipstick on Christmas day and didn't even have to reapply at all. Even my auntie said to me how surprised she was how it had still stayed on throughout eating and drinking all day. Although on the pricier side for a lipstick, both of these picks are truly worth every penny.

Benefit Roller Lash
As someone with relatively short eyelashes, this mascara truly is unreal. It lifts, it curls, it lengthens and most importantly it lasts all day. I was quite sceptical with trying this at first because I was never a big fan of They're Real, as after just an hour my eyelashes just seemed to droop. But with Roller Lash, I'm left with big, fluttering eyelashes all day. This is hands down my holy grail mascara.

And so that was my holy grail beauty products. My all time favourites and the ones I can always rely upon in investing in and achieving the best results. I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's weekend, I'd love to hear all about it in the comments below.
Until next time,

What products can you always rely on?!
