Products I Have Used Up

Whilst I was in Madrid half of my must have products in my makeup bag ran out day by day. I literally brought them back for this post being the dedicated beauty blogger which I am!

First up, my holy grail high end foundation of all time comes in the form of Nars sheer glow foundation. I have already re-bought this as I just cannot be without it, it does not come cheap in the slightest as it costs £33. I only usually wear this when I am going out or at the weekends, I just cannot justify to wear it on a day to day basis. It is a medium coverage foundation which works really well with my beautyblender. The best feature to this foundation is its finish which has a glow element to it, which really adds luminosity and radiance to my skin.

I wrote a full blog dedicated to this not too long ago which you can read here. The Vichy dermablend foundation is a full coverage foundation which I wear on a daily basis to work, this is always on offer for £15 which is not cheap but I am yet to find a cheaper alternative. At the end of the day, even with a primer, setting spray and powder, I still have wear over my acne areas. Therefore, it is not the perfect foundation which I am always longing for, but it is the closest which I am yet to find. 

I discovered this concealer thanks to a blogger a year or so ago, but for the life of me I cannot remember who it was! The Seventeen stay time concealer costs just £4.49, and I rushed out and to repurchase this as soon as the plane landed. I use this in the shade extra fair as my under eye concealer to add brightness. It has good coverage, a creamy consistency, and all round I think it is just as good as Nars' creamy concealer which is triple the price of this.

One beauty product I struggle to get excited about is mascara. I always go to the high street for mascaras, as there is a lot out there on offer. The one I have just finished is the Maybelline the falsies push up drama mascara. I have used this for about a year now on a regular basis and I have been impressed with it. Over the years I have had a lot of Maybelline mascaras which I have not been too fussed over, and have sat at the back of my drawers collecting dust. This has pleasantly surprised me as it curls and lengthens my lashes, without any clumping which is often my issue.

As I am fair skinned and have dark blonde hair, my eyebrows are the not best. I go monthly to have them waxed and tinted brown to help give them some shape and definition. However, I still need help with them as my tint starts to fade and I want them to look a little fuller. This is where the Benefit goof proof eyebrow pencil comes and saves the day. I have recommended this to literally everyone who has ever asked me about my brows and products which I use. The slightly waxy feel to the product makes it very easy to glide over the brows. The shade range is good as it goes from light blonde to black; I use shade 2 which is a medium brown shade. Once the product is applied to my brows, I always use the spoolie to brush through them to set it all in place and evenly distribute the product.
