Make Up Products I’ve Repurchased

Make Up Products I’ve Repurchased

Today I thought I would share with you the Make Up Products I’ve Repurchased over the past few years. This post contains products that are some of my holy grails and that I love enough to re-purchase them.

The make up section is a bit smaller than the other sections because I find that it takes me a lot longer to get through make up products than it does with skincare and bodycare products. Like I have never finished a lipstick in my life so I can’t include any of those in this post.


Too Faced Primer

This is my all time favourite make up primer and when I first tried it I got the full sized one when I was in America as it wasn’t available in the UK and I finished the whole tube because I loved it so much. When it was getting towards the end no more product was coming out the pump so I cut it open and used what was left on the inside because there was loads left and I didn’t want to waste any of it.
Then when I was in Portugal in the summer I was in a Sephora and saw this mini version of it so I picked it up and I am still using it now but when I finish this one I’m going to purchase the full size again because Too Faced now sell it in the UK, which I am super happy about.

It Cosmetics CC Cream

As soon as I discovered the It Cosmetics CC Cream I fell in love with it and I haven’t used another foundation since! I have used the original CC Cream for about a year and a half as I first tried it in March 2017 and mentioned it in my March Favourites and about a month ago I tried It Cosmetics’ new launch of a matte formula of the CC Cream and have been loving that one so far.
If you are looking for something that has quite a bit of coverage but that feels super light on the skin I would highly recommend this product. As it is a CC Cream it feels super light on the skin but it has the coverage of some foundations which I love. Also, a little goes a long way so I found that it took me a long long time for me to get through a whole tube.

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer

I love love love this concealer and I have gone through one whole pot of this and I am onto my second. It is such an amazing high coverage concealer and has a matte finish that I love. You may think that because it is a matte finish it will be drying but it really isn’t which is great as it doesn’t cling to blemishes and emphasise them even more.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

This is a cult product that everyone loves and talks about and I have used it for years. I go through phases when I love it then don’t but I always seem to come back to it every time. As my skin is quite oily I always have to use a powder to set my make up. I have used a lot of powders and loved a few of them but this has always remained one of my favourites and for the price that it is I would say it is one of the bests. It keeps my make up in place all day and helps to reduce shine which I love.
The other powder that I really love is the Laura Mercier Powder but it has a much higher price tag than this Rimmel one so this one is definitely better value for money.

Laura Mercier Translucent Powder

As I just mentioned I really love this powder but it is quite expensive compared to the Rimmel one but I honestly would say that it is worth the money. One pot lasts a really long time because a little goes a long way.
I like the Rimmel one and this one for different reasons and they are different formulas so they are harder to compare; the Rimmel one is a pressed powder whereas this one is a loose powder.

Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil

As I am a red-head I find it pretty hard to find eyebrow products that match the shade of my eyebrows so when I find one I love it’s great and this product is the only one that I have found that matches my hair colour pretty much perfectly. I love that it is double ended so has a spoolie on one end and the product on the other because it means you have everything you need in one product without having to have a spoolie separately. I use the spoolie every time I do my brows so I love this.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara

When I first bought this product I didn’t know if I was going to like it or not so I bought the mini version of it to try; but I did love it and now I have finished the whole mini tube and I have re-purchased it in the larger size. I first tried the original version of the better than sex mascara but because I have quite naturally straight lashes that it didn’t hold a curl even after curling my eyelashes so I tried the waterproof version and I much prefer it because it keeps my lashes nicely curled.

Glossier Lash Slick Mascara

This is one of my all time favourite mascaras and I wear it on a regular basis. This is the mascara that I will wear when my make up is pretty natural and don’t really want to do much with it. I also use it when I’m not really wearing any make up except doing my brows then I will use this for a natural mascara look. This formula isn’t waterproof but for a natural looking mascara I don’t really mind as much about the curl lasting for a long time.
I just love the natural look this mascara gives as it makes your lashes look so long and separated which is the look I prefer.

I get my brows tinted every now and then because they are naturally pretty much non-existent 😂 when I have them tinted I don’t really tend to wear mascara but when the tint has faded away I will wear it.

Nars Eyeshadow Primer

This is the only eyeshadow primer that I will use as it is the only one I have found that makes any sort of difference to the longevity of my eyeshadow. I have quite oily eyelids so I find that eyeshadow doesn’t last very long on my eyelids unless I use this eyeshadow primer. When I wear the primer my eyeshadow will last all day without creasing, even in hot weather which is amazing.

Here are some of the products that I mentioned in this post incase you want to try and of them for yourself.
