Makeup Products I used frequently this week!

Now, I know we all have quite a vast amount of make up, if you are reading this blog post, you are probably one of them!

Well... I have quite abit, and had a bit of a struggle trying to squeeze my body shop makeup into my storage system! I was thinking, when am I even going to use all of this? why do I have 7 concealers and 10 bases and 3 primers which I never use?

So you see, I have decided to "try" and not buy makeup until something has run out! Good motto right?

I decided to review what products I use the most and thought I would enlighten you with the products that I reached for more than 3 times this past week. What are your most frequently used products? Here are mine:
  • Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser
  • BeneFit Boing concealer
  • Nars Laguna
  • Chanel exceptionnel mascara
  • Mac Oak lipliner
  • Mac e/s Femme Fi
  • Mac 134 and 217 brush
  • Mac Fresh Brew lipstick
I think I might do this post once in a while, yay or nay?

Defo YAY!!! I so want to hear the review on Bobbi Brown tinted moisturiser!!

Emma said...

Good idea!

I have my "go to" products as well that I couldn't be without.

I think most of my makeup collection is things I bought in the long search for my HG items so I have to admit there is a lot of stuff that never gets reached for anymore.

I have fun trying it out an experimenting though :)

Laguna bronzer
YSL rouge volupte #7
NARS Corfu shadow
L'oreal voluminous

I say Yay! So much of my makeup is stuff i bought in the hope of it being better than what i already had. haha so it builds up and up but there are definatly item i use alot more than others.
Would you reccommend bobbi brown foundation? I NEEED to find something that i like. I'm finding liquid foundations impossible at the moment. x

Gabriela said...

I completely agree with you. Some time ago I decide no more foundation for me until I run out of some of them. Now I decide no more makeup or others until my holidays. Is out of this world! I want to travel more!

Good stuff! I am a Mac Addict mostly! So, what I can NEVER do without is the following:

Face: Mac Studio Tech (NC35)
Mac Studio Fix (NC35)
Eyes: I've been using Mac Carbon FOREVER to line the upper lash line and give it the cat eye look...my look for years!!! lol
Lips: I love pinks and nudes. A lot from Mac and I also like Victoria's Secret lipsticks and makeup!
Gosh, there's so much more I use, but I was too lazy to go check out my makeup storage to find the names of stuff! lol This is great though, glad to find gals that have such a passion for makeup as much as I do! :)

Sirvinya said...

Yay! Great idea to post that. Hmm, I'm not sure I'd ever succeed in using anything up though. And I've not even attempted to fit my Body Shop stuff anywhere yet, it's still in its bag.

Make up Crunch! said...

Definitely yay!! the products I go for everyday (inkeeping with my budget make up pledge!) are: ELF tinted hydro shield, Stargazer pigment No.14, Rimmell Lash Maxxx mascara, MeMeMe concealer with mineral powder. Not inkeeping with my budget pledge (ahem!) NARS Angelika blush, Bobbi Brown neutrals eye pallet, MAC sheer powder which I would sell my soul before trading in for a cheaper option. I'm big into my Vaseline Rosy lips at the moment so thats living in my bag too.

Laura said...

Deffo yay, good post!

I recently had an assess of my stuff, and am only going to buy or swap stuff that I actually really want or need, because there is so much unloved stuff now :(

ClassyDea66 said...

I definitely like your "no buying make up until something has run out" but with all these nice collections how can you pass a lipstick or lip gloss or even a blush... :X

BTW, you should definitely stick to these type of posts... :)

Krystallia said...

Yay!!I think i should try Bobbi browns products..

Anna said...

Yay! LOL! Loved this post! :) xoxo Anna

Christopher said...

Just curious, do you set your undereye concealer with powder? Because I have boiing concealer and if I don't use powder it creases like craaaaaaaaaaazy on me :( and suddenly when I do use powder it still creases. :( I'm 21 so it's not like I'm old and wrinkly yet! it sucks, do you have any advice since your undereye concealer always looks sooo smooth.

Anyways, I love your blog!

deannamargaret said...

I try setting that motto for myself all the time! "You have 2 primers, don't buy another!" But then the MUA always convinces me that the formulation is THE BEST. Lol I like this post though -- definitely keep doing them.

I've always wanted to try Bobbi Brown foundation. I've loved every single Bobbi Brown product I ever bought. I need a tinted moisturizer for the summer anyway. I'll have to check that out!

bubblegarm said...

@Christopher - i set my concealer whenever I remember to with mac kitty couture sheer mystery powder, if i dont it creases like you said :(
