Everyone has those make-up products that we can't live without. Those products which when they are empty we just have to go out and splash the cash to have them in our make-up bags again! Well, I have put together my top 5 make-up "empties" which I have frequently bought again, again and again and I'm going to give you a little review of each and tell you exactly why I re-buy them!
This mascara no word of a lie, is a GODSEND! This has to be my top make-up repurchase! I have lost count of how many of these I have got through! For me mascara is really important, I love having dark, full and long lashes and for me this mascara does exactly that!
Firstly, the brush is made out of a soft plastic, which I find helps separate my lashes giving them that natural yet false effect - I HATE mascara with those fluffy brushes! You never have to apply too much of the product on the brush to get the look you want. It is most defiantly a no fuss mascara, because if Im in a rush one coat does the job. One other thing that I love about this mascara is how I can build up the coats to whatever effect I want, whereas with other mascaras I have bought, once I have applied a few coats it gets lumpy etc. I have tried other mascaras from L'oreal to Maybelline, but I haven't yet found a better mascara. This mascara does exactly what it says. If like me you love having big lashes without the use of falsies, this is worth a try. I would say with confidence this mascara is a dupe for benefits they're real mascara which is nearly twice the price - but is also an amazing mascara!
This is my second Hoola from benefit and I love it! If you haven't got a Hoola in your make-up bag then GO AND GET ONE! It is the UK's best selling bronzer and it is obvious why.
The powder is soft, dusty and gives a matt finish with no sparkle or shine - where can you go wrong?! It is simply a tan in a box and gives you a natural tanned look. I also find that no matter what time of year, I can wear this bronzer and it's never too light or dark as I can build the colour. Although it is a little on the pricey side, it does last a very long time. It took me a while to hit the pan and I couldn't even tell you how long it lasts because I can't even remember when I bought this one. What I also love about this product is how compact it is. It comes in a small box with a mirror and a soft brush. I use this product for all over bronzing and contouring depending on what I fancy.
Yes, another Benefit product - it can't be helped they just have some great products!
This highlighter compliments the Hoola bronzer perfectly if you want that natural glowy look. It is a soft highlighter in a lovely champagne colour, which is perfect for any skin tone. It always gives my skin a luminous finish, which makes me feel great. This product can also be used in many ways - cheekbones, nose, brow bones, eyeshadow base and a base for lip gloss! If Im in a rush this can be used on a clean make-up free face, or over the top of make-up. The only thing about this product that I dislike, is that it comes with an odd foam applicator thingy which I never use and seems pretty pointless. Instead I apply it directly and then use my fingers or a brush to blend. For me, this is my go-to makeup product. This is one make-up product that a few of my friends have gone out and actually purchased after using mine!
Along with megastar beauty blogger Tanya Burr, this is without a doubt my favourite powder. It is inexpensive and to be frank I cannot fault it!
I always powder my face, but mainly in the areas where I may get a tad oily - like my t-zone. I would recommend this product to anyone with any skin type (my skin type is dry/combination). It really does exactly what is says, it gives you a matt finish and helps my foundation last longer. I have bought powders from MAC cosmetics and other high end brands, but they have never been as good as my Rimmel powder! I get the transparent powder as I dont want to add any extra colour to my face, I purely use the powder to help my foundation last longer and to keep it matte! This product is a make-up bag ESSENTIAL!
Well as you can see this product is used A LOT, in fact I use this daily! I have just repurchased this product because as you can see mine is getting a little grubby and I couldn't resist buying a new one - ooopsie!
Firstly, I just want to say there are many products in high street stores which are similar such as the brow kit from Sleek, but for me my Benefit brow zings just has that little extra - mainly its staying power. The product comes in 3 colours - light, medium and deep. I have the light colour (I have light brown hair). Anyone can use this product. It is super easy to apply and Benefit have kindly supplied us with two brushes - a hard angle brush and a blending brush. You use the hard angled brush to apply the super pigmented wax to define and shape your brows - for me the wax is the best bit I find it clings (not sure about use of word... but you get me!) to my eyebrow hair and I can create any eyebrow shape that I fancy. I then use the powder to lock the brows in place and to fill in any sparse areas. I also love the fact it comes with a miniature pair of tweezers (cute!) as it means you can pluck any stray hairs. I must say this product has never let me down! Its compact, easy to apply and I have never needed to reapply the product - it lasts all day. (If you are considering buying this product, it is defiantly worth going into a department store where they sell Benefit, or a Benefit store to make sure you buy the correct colour for you!)
Well that's my top 5 make-up products that I repurchase! I hope you found it interesting! Please leave a comment below and let me know what your top products are!
