10 Beauty Products I will always Repurchase
With more products available than ever before and shiny new beauty bits being released on the daily, shopping for makeup and skincare can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Therefore, prior to purchasing, I tend to ask for recommendations from friends and search for reviews online. I love hearing about the products that people use and love. I’m also especially intrigued by the products that they repurchase time and time again. I feel like this says a lot about a product – especially as the beauty industry is pretty saturated, to say the least. Today I thought I would share the 10 holy grail beauty bits that I will always repurchase in hopes of providing some beauty shopping inspo.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
As an oily/combination skin girl, I often feel that my skin requires a little extra help to make sure that my makeup stays … you know, on my face. Therefore primers and bases have become my everyday superheroes. Over the years, I have tried various priming products but nothing has come close to the staying power of Urban Decay’s mighty primer potion. From the longest of work days to summer getaways and nights out on the town, this primer potion is guaranteed to have your back, keeping shadow creasing at bay!
Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water
Taking your makeup off at the end of a long day has got to be one of the best feelings ever, right? Waterproof mascara, double wear foundation, liquid lipstick you name it, this cleansing water removes it – in a flash. For a speedy removal, Garnier Micellar water is my go to quickie cleanser. The oil infused variation not only removes makeup effectively but adds a little burst hydration to the skin – this is something which I feel that most cleansing waters lack.
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
Love that glowy, dewy skin look? You need this product in your life. Foundation is one of my favourite makeup bits to try out and test. However, I am forever returning to this high street beauty find. From its lightweight gel texture to its beautiful scent, healthy mix just ticks all of the boxes for me.
Ecotools Beauty Sponge
Having tested out various tools from the original Beauty Blender to the budget friendly alternative from Real Techniques I have become a total beauty sponge convert. However, there are two tools which have (surprisingly) trumped them all for me – the Ecotools perfecting blending duo. The duo consists of one large squishy sponge and a smaller, more firm blender. When used together, the two provide the most seamless and flawless makeup application. To be honest, I haven’t purchased many products from Eco Tools in the past, but at the moment, I can’t see myself buying from any other brand anytime soon.
NYX Tame and Frame
When it comes to brow products, finding something with the perfect shade and texture can be pretty tricky. Last year I had a bit of a disaster in the eyebrow department when I noticed that the wax based pencil I had been using was actually pulling my eyebrow hairs out (shrieks). Since then I have tried to steer clear of pencils and opt for gels and pomades. This little find from NYX has been a dream, the “Brunette” shade option matched my brows perfectly and the product itself does not dry up like some others I have tried.
Sleek Power Plump Lip Crayon
When I first picked up this product last year, I had no idea how much of a staple it would become. “Notorious Nude” is the perfect every day “Your lips but better” shade. As for the formula? Well, it couldn’t be any more perfect – it is long lasting, extremely pigmented, moisturising and plumping. What more does a girl need?
Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
For years (yes, literally years) I have been waiting for a high street brand to release something comparable to Mac’s MSF Naturals. However, I don’t believe that it has been achieved. This powder provides the perfect amount of coverage which somehow never seems to look cakey or flat. I have been repurchasing this product since I was 17 and will most likely continue to do so.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Dim Light
This beautiful powder is definitely one of those “You get what you pay for” type picks. The consistency of the powder is unlike anything I have ever tried. Similarly, the glowy “Lit from within” glow it provides is incomparable to any other product that I have tried … so far!
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner
This is one product that I feel that everyone should try at least once. Until a few months ago, I was yet to try out a brush tip liner. Now? I don’t think I would use anything else. This particular liner is packed with long lasting pigment, oh and the applicator makes winged liner a hell of a lot easier!
Benefit Roller Lash
I have somehow been blessed with pretty long eyelashes so, when mascara shopping, I tend to opt for something that curls and volumizes rather than those that lengthen. When using Rollerlash I don’t even need to pick up those eyelash curlers. The product’s unique wand seems to cling right onto even the shortest of lashes and lifts them sky high.
I really hope you enjoyed this little beauty post. Do you have a list of products that you find yourself repurchasing? I’d love to know your holy grail picks!
