So below are 11 products (be it make-up or skincare) that I most reached for (use a lot of)....
[I'm aware that a few products I have spoke about before.]
|Garnier Roll-on concealer|
|Soap&Glory's 'Bright Here Bright Now'|
|Show Time lashes by Sasatinnie (SASA) in DAYLIGHT|
They came in a pack of 10, and I bought these in Hong Kong at Sasa for a reasonable price (that I can't remember). Glue is not included (but I prefer to use the Eylure glues that I have anyway).
|Maybelline's Volum' Express turbo boost wasterproof mascara in black|
|Botanics First signs of ageing Eye and Lip serum|
It claims to reduce wrinkles on eyes n lips within 4 weeks. However being 22 of age, I don't really have wrinkles yet but because it says it moisturises and firms I decided to purchase it.
Little did I know that this wonderful product for such a decent price (around £8?) real potential lies in the fact that it allows my eyelashes to grow what feels like 10 times faster than normal! Before I used this product I had lashes that were a bit sparse because of harsh curling and tugging, so it was very uneven. I noticed after about two months of using this, that my lashes started to grow back out faster and suddenly! my lashes are much more even now (not perfect just even). This is probably due to the horse chestnut and poagoda tree ingrediants that's packed inside.
|Botanics Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover|
I discovered this products years ago, even before I read or saw any reviews about it. I must say, I don't use anyother eye make-up remover but this one. It's affordable (£3.99 I think it retails at? Something like that), it keeps my eyes soft and it contains nothing that will make my eyes become sensitive.
In the bottle, the liquid comes in two layers; the bottom layer is green and I'm guessing it's where the iceland moss ingrediant lies in and this helps to soothe and hydrate your eyes, and the top layer is a clear oily liquid, the kind you get in baby oils and this helps to soften and removes any make-up and dirt on your eyes.
|Laura Mercier's Silk Creme Foundation|
|Shade: Beige Ivory|
|Shu Uemura's red:juvenus lotion|
|Urban Decay Naked Palette|
This also came with a double-ended eyeliner (the 24/7 eyeliners in whiskey - brown - and zero -black-) and a small primer potion. When I bought it was around £25 (or a tiny bit more), it was surely money well spent as it's a great investment!
However, this product has been so greatly praised about, a lot of places became out of stock, when I bought mines at my local Boots, they had loads left, but recently I discovered that my local Boots don't sell this brand anymore. I haven't been the Boots in town yet to check if they still sell Urban Decay. If not, I remember Debenhams selling them. =]
|M.A.C blush in Style|
This was actually recommended by a friend of mines and as soon as she mentioned it, I popped out within that week to grab hold of it! I remember raving about this on Facebook after buying it. This shade is a orange with a slight peachy pink undertone and gold shimmers. Although it has shimmers, it's not so much that it will make your cheeks look oily. This shade is perfect for the summer and against pale-ish skin like I have, adding a pop of colour. Compare to all my other blushes, I use this probably too often! However if I was to do a soft natural look, I would usee my Revlon blush in 030 Blushed because it is more a soft pink rather than using orange like this one.

Well, let me introduce you to these two; Soft Coral is a coral orange with a slight pink undertone, it's not too bright on me that it makes me look awfully weird, if anything it gives me that natural healthy kick to my lips. Pink Nude is currently my favourite, I love it so much I bought another for my friend's birthday and she told me she liked it too even though she doesn't wear lipsticks at all. She also told me she partly liked it because it was a nude-based shade, so it was wearable to her. For me, I love it as well for it's nude-based shade, and for it's touch of pink mixed into it. This one is perfect if you wanted a nude look, but don't want to go too nude for your lips that it makes you look ill. I find this one wearable not only during nights out, but daytime looks too and I even wear this to work! How convienent!
So that's it folks for this post! (Finally!!!)
