Always In My Makeup Bag

I don't do beauty posts all that often, but I thought these products definitely deserved a mention - the unsung heroes of my makeup bag that I repurchase over and over again and rely on every single day.


Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer | OK I know what you're thinking - 'she's a blogger so of course she likes the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer'. Yes it's possibly one of the most hyped products within the blogging world, but there's a darn good reason for that. IT WORKS. Out of all the concealers I've tried this is the one that covers blemishes best, but doesn't give that horrible 'this is makeup that's covering a blemish' look. I'll wear this without foundation if I'm feeling brave.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder | I've been using this powder for about ten years now and it's always been my holy grail. It's just SO good. I never get shiny even if I've applied it hours ago and it's just a real 'my face but better' product (LOL yes I did just say that.)

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara | This is a product I only discovered about a year ago. I'd tried and loved Benefit's Roller Lash, but mascara isn't a product I like to spend a lot of dollar on as I go through it so quickly and I'd heard this was a dupe. It's actually better than Roller Lash in my opinion and at least half the price!

Estée Lauder Double Wear | Most of my holy grail makeup products are budget options, but when it comes to foundation I'm willing to spend a bit more. Estée Lauder Double Wear was recommended to me by a friend whose skin always looks flawless so after getting at least three free testers of it I made the splurge. It's my get out of jail foundation - it's like putting a mask on and as well as being my special occasion foundation it also comes to the rescue on days when I'm just not feeling my face!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge | Since buying my first sponge a couple of years ago I rarely use a brush to apply my base (basically only when my sponge needs cleaning...) - a sponge is just so much better. I tend to get a much more natural finish with a sponge and it's also really nice to use in a weird way. I like to use a toner water on it instead of normal water sometimes for a treat (it's the little things).

What products are always in your makeup bag?

  1. Great post, I really love the sound of the mascara. I'm due a new one so am going to try that as I have been using the Roller Lash and didn't really want to speak that much this time.

  8. I actually haven't heard about that concealer yet oops! I am a huge fan of Anastasia BH as well as Tarte so my favorite items come from those two brands! From mascara to an eyeliner and a great contour palette!
