Ok yes.. it’s a box. But I’m currently organising my room because I like everything I use in one place so I can grab it as I go. Moving on… I am so addicted to buying the makeup I desperately want. It’s a sickness yes, but not a bad one. Ive bought things that are terrible and things I use non-stop and are my all time faves. My scrambled box of beauty shown below:
So from this box of mess, I have picked out my favourite products to show you what I think are must haves!
1. SMASHBOX PHOTO FINISH PRIMERIZER.
This primer doubles as a moisturiser and it’s brilliant. I have combination skin so this on the dry areas really stops foundation from flaking off. It’s also not too heavy on the oily areas either, making my foundation smooth all over.
2. DOLL BEAUTY DOLL LIGHT HIGHLIGHTER IN ‘LIKE A DIAMOND’.
This. Is. SICKENING. Honestly the best highlight I’ve ever used. If you’re into the natural glow… not for you at all. This will blind anyone that even dares look at your cheeks. As you can see mine is a bit used and I’ve created a reasonable dint in the middle. Not to forget it’s dirt cheap. Doll beauty is seriously killing the game here. Like a diamond is definitely for the lighter skin tones as compared to Shine Bright.
RRP: £15 (wtf)
3. RCMA NO-COLOR POWDER.
Love love love this. Doesn’t flashback on pictures, doesn’t crease, doesn’t flake off the skin and is dirt cheap. I will not use any other setting powder I love this too much. If you can get your hands on this I would 100% recommend.
4. URBAN DECAY BEACHED BRONZER IN ‘SUN-KISSED’.
Just the packaging for this bronzer is enough. It screams tanned and glowing. The bronzer itself is incredible, it’s definitely more warm toned so wouldn’t recommend for contouring but it’s perfect to add just a bit of colour. I mean surely you can sense the love just from seeing the pan?! My shade is the lighter of the bunch and suits lighter skin tones nicely. There are a fair few more shades if you’re looking for a darker shade.
Below is a brief comparison to Benefit Hoola so you can see it’s warmer…
5. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS LIQUID LIPSTICKS.
I own the shades American Doll (red) and Stripped (light nude). Both of these are some of the best lip colours and formulas I’ve ever worn! I will 100% be purchasing more of these when pay day arrives as I regret neither of these purchases. Although they do dry down very matte, they’re very comfortable to wear. They’re a pain in the a*s to get off though!
RRP: £20 each.
6. MORPHE X JACLYN HILL PALETTE.
Now this bad boy is a hot mess so apologies on the pictures but it’s my go to palette for everything. The formula is actually the best I’ve ever used and want so much more like this. I’m scared to buy more morphe just in case it’s not as good. This is just the god of palettes. If you get a chance to buy this… you will not regret it!
RRP: £30-£37 (depends where you purchase).
That’s it for my all time faves that I currently own anyway. I will update this when I’ve restocked on some of my must haves. There’s a few more in there you may have noticed but you can check them out in my other Drugstore Favourites post.
Hope you enjoyed this post and I’ll see you in the next one.
