Happy weekend! Today I thought I would share the love for some beauty products that were must haves in their prime, that I still love and use today. Of course most of these are re-purchases and I haven’t had the same products in my collection for years and years! Let me know if you spot anything you used to use and love!
Firstly worth a mention is the Too Faced Hangover X primer, I mostly remember this from YouTube where everyone was raving about the hydration this gives. I have purchased many of these over the years, especially now I have a more dry skin type than I did a few year ago. It has a light coconut scent and has a hydrating and smooth texture that looks great under any foundation. I think I will probably re-purchase this until the end of time!
Secondly is the EX1 Cosmetics foundation, I’ve repurchased this so many times and I have multiple shades to match my varying tan levels! Its a medium but buildable coverage that leaves a nice sheen to the skin without looking oily or cakey. It blends seamlessly over the dry parts of my face and doesn’t break up in my more oily T zone, couldn’t ask for more ina foundation and genuinely haven’t found anything else that quite compares!
The hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes are another I will probably always love and adore, they give such a lit from within glow to the skin while adding the perfect flush of colour. I love the formula of these and I couldn’t think of anything better in terms of blush formula. I will also always love the Marc Jacobs Bronzer, I know their beauty line is now discontinued but I found one of these in TKMaxx recently and couldn’t not pick it up. I remember when everyone was obsessed with Marc Jacobs beauty, and I’m really sad I probably wont be able to buy another of these bronzers as the colour and formula (packaging too) is stunning!
Anyone else remember Colour Pop Flexitarian Highlighter? Yep, I still re-purchase this unique wet type powder formula, as I haven’t found anything quite the same. I love how wet and glossy this makes my skin and something about the spongey texture in the pan is super satisfying!
I also still really enjoy the Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow, as its the perfect contour shade on my fair skin. It has a lovely blend-able formula and the colour really ticks all my boxes. I use and love plenty of other cream contour products but I always seem to back to this as its just so good.
Finally, I still love the ABH Dipbrow, even though fluffy brows are in right now. This product is so unique and long wearing that you really can use it for whatever brow style you want to go for! They can dry out quite quickly if not stored correctly, but I just love the formula and I cant imagine a time I wont even re-purchase this!
I hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane, let me know if you spot any old favourites!
