I love looking at what beauty bloggers most top favourite makeup essentials are. The products that they buy over and over repeatedly and what they consider to be their all-time favourite Holy Grail products that they will buy for years to come. I have a few of these products that I cannot live without. If my makeup was ever stolen, these would be my top 5 products that I would repurchase first… well let’s be honest, immediately as I cannot live without them. Many of these products I use on an everyday basis so they definitely get their use!
|Top Row: Rimmel Kate Lipstick in 101, True Match Foundation - N1 Ivory, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer|
Bottom Row: MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter, Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
The first product that has been my all time most favourite makeup product ever is my L’Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation in N1 ivory. The foundation has a light to medium coverage which I find great as it evens out my skin tone, and I can use concealer to cover up any blemishes that are still left over. I hate the feeling of a thick cakey foundation so a light to medium coverage is perfect for me. This foundation is so light that I don’t actually feel it on my skin throughout the day and it feels just like normal skin. The True Match foundations come in a bunch of different shades with pink and yellow undertones so you should easily be able to find a colour that suits you! I am forever loyal to this foundation and I do not actually own any other brands of foundation. About a year back I actually got a great deal from Boots using a 3 for 2 event as well as an online coupon code and ended up getting around £100 of this foundation for like £50 so I bought a bunch and have loads of them in stock. I cannot even explain how in love I am with this foundation and I really would recommend it to anyone!

The next product is my Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer. This is actually my first bottle of this concealer but it is the only concealer I use. I use this product almost every day and I find that it works great under the eyes as well as on blemishes and spots. The coverage is amazing and it lasts a long time throughout the day before needing to touch up.
One of my favourite parts of makeup is highlighting my skin, so I really love using the MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter. The product costs £3 at Superdrug and you can even catch these on a 3 for 2 event so it works out to be even cheaper. The highlighter is very shimmery and gives a really nice glow to the cheeks without looking like a disco ball. I find that it does look natural but you can somewhat tell you have highlighter on but I love the way it looks.
The next two products I bought recently but I have been wearing them every single day and they are for sure a staple product in my makeup collection. I have never had a Holy Grail eyeliner and honestly I get a little disappointed by the ones that I have tried in the past. I had always used pencil liners which I don’t find last that long and liquid eyeliner was a little too difficult to apply so I decided to pick up the Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner and I fell in love! This eyeliner even comes with a brush and I find that the brush is very thin and it is so easy to create a thick or even a thin line across your lid. The eyeliner never comes out bumpy but looks perfect every time as you have amazing control over the product. The lasting power in incredible and I have never seen an eyeliner stay put for as long as this one did. I find that even after 12-13 hours of wear the eyeliner stays put and still looks perfect without smudging, cannot rave enough about this product!
I am not a huge lip person but slowly I have been branching out trying new lip glosses and lipsticks. I bought the Kate Rimmel lipsticks in 101 which is in the red tube. I love the colour of this lipstick as it is an everyday nude pink shade that is completely matte on the lips. I do not find this lipstick to be drying in the slightest and I don’t find that it becomes uncomfortable after hours of wear. The product does stay on your lips for a good amount of time before needing to apply. I also love that you can either wear this matte or if you want some shimmer you can add a nice lip gloss over the top to give it a shine.
I hope you all enjoyed hearing about my top five favourite makeup products that are in my collection. I honestly will buy these makeup products again and again when I run out of the ones I currently have.
