What's in My Everyday Make-up Bag?

It's nice 'n' all  seeing all these reviews for a huge mix of products, but it's those products that make it into your everyday routine that have stood the real test - don't you think?

PRIME - I've been using W7 'Prime Magic' for a while now in a bid to make my gargantuan pores less obvious. I'd say it works quite well, but next on my hit list is Benefit 'Porefessional'.

CONCEAL - I decided to test out Essence 'Stay All Day Concealer' which to be frank, it awful as a concealer since it rubs away as soon as you attempt to blend it, but I do like it to highlight my brow bone. Old faithful Collection 'Lasting Perfection' never does me wrong!

BASE - I fancied something with a bit more coverage than my usual Bourjois pickings, so Revlon 'Colourstay' it was. This isn't as full coverage as I remember, especially when buffed in with a stippling brush, but it sure as Hell lasts!

POWDER - Another Essence offering! This geezer keeps my foundation in place nicely, but I think it also gives a bit of an orangey tinge...back to Rimmel once this guy's finished...

CONTOUR - Sleek contour kit in 'Medium' is my pick, it's a wee bit too warm to be a 'true contouring shade' but it adds a little definition to my cheeks and warms up my complexion nicely.

BLUSH - Yet more Essence - eek! This peachy shade is ideal fir my skintone and help me look fair more alive than I usually feel!

PRIME - Oh, Too Faced 'Shadow Insurance', how I love thee. My favourite eyeshadow primer ever. 

EYESHADOW - I tend to keep eyeshadows I can just throw on in my make-up bag, which lately has been a selection of Darling Girl and Essence. I've actually reviewed this palette recently, you can see swatches right here.

LINE - After scouring THREE Superdrugs for my all time favourite liner (MUA waterproof) and coming up empty handed (is it just me, or do Superdrug suck at keeping MUA stocked?) I grabbed the first alternative I saw - 2true waterproof liner. So far so good, but I do miss my MUA!

LASHES - Max Factor are the don of mascaras which STAY. 'Masterpiece Transform' gives volume and length without becoming clumpy - ideal.

BROWS - How ragged does my Fashionista brow palette look?! I daren't show you the state of the inside. However, it does have the perfect dark brown for my brows and doubles nicely as a little neutrals palette.

And that, my friends, is my everyday make-up bag! What's in yours?

  1. I agree about Max Factor - best mascara I've tried on the market (apart from Benefit but that's a tad pricier!)
    Like the sound of that new masterpiece one, I've been using the original recently and it's such a classic! Will try the latest version once mine has dried out :)


  2. Couldn't live without collection concealer and sleeks contour kit! X

  3. @ Kat, It really is! The only reason I usually buy Maybelline instead is that it's easier to remove and lasts just as well. I've only tried Benefits 'They're Real' mascara and didn't rate it at all!

    @ Adele, they are drugstore classics!
