Today I’m doing a collab with my blogger bae Abbie, (find her blog here), and we thought we’d do Jacqueline Hill’s “Ride Or Die” tag. Basically if we were stuck on a desert island what must have beauty products would we take with us?
Primer : Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Primer : This is my favourite primer ever, and this is my second bottle of it! I personally think this is a pretty good dupe for the Benefit “That Gal” primer and a fraction of the cost.
Foundation : Revlon Colour Stay Foundation In 150 : This is a foundation I always go back to, and I love the fact its made especially for people with dry skin. It gives a nice, even finish and doesn’t cling to any dry patches like other foundations do.
Concealer : Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer : I love everything about this concealer. It’s brilliant coverage, the formula goes on really well and the applicator is brilliant. A bit pricey but worth the money
Under Eye Setting Powder: I’ve only ever used a LilyLoLo under eye setting powder, and I wasn’t thrilled with it, and I just set my concealer with my regular powder, so no answer for this!
Powder :L’Oréal True Match Powder: To be honest I don’t really use more then one powder at a time so I’d have to go for this one, because I can’t do without a powder in my make up routine. I do really like this, but in my opinion, powder is just powder.
Blush: Benefit Rockateur Blush: This blush is my all time favourite which is why it looks so battered. It was a birthday present from Dan and I have to say the boy did good. It’s a lovely rose colour without being too overpowering ,has a little bit of highlight and smells divine.
Bronzer: Bourjois Contour Illusion Bronzer & Highlight : I haven’t really ventured into the world of bronzers too much as I’ve only just recently started contouring and all that shit. But I’ve been loving this one recently. It might be a weird thing to say but I love that it’s not too pigmented so I can build it up and not have massive brown lines on my cheeks
Highlight : The Balm Mary Lou Manizer: I know this is a cult favourite, but I love this. The pigment and colour is so beautiful and really suits my skin tone. I probably won’t buy another highlighter until this runs out.
Mascara : I don’t particularly love any mascara, I just kind of use the ones I have open then after three months use a new one. But if I had to pick a favourite one that I’ve used it would be the L’oreal Miss Manga mascara, (which I don’t have a picture of!)
Lipstick: MAC Viva Glam 3 & Rimmel Kate In 45: You guys have no idea how tough this one was. In the end I couldn’t choose one so I’ve picked these two. For a night out, if I’m stuck on what to wear, MAC Viva Glam 3 is my go to. It’s a matte finish, and the most beautiful deep red colour. For everyday wear, I always fall back on the Rimmel Kate in 45, which is a really pretty pink based nude, which goes with literally every single eye look.
Liquid Lip : Sleek Matte Me In Shabby Chic : I haven’t tried a lot of liquid lipsticks, but I love the sleek formula (the darker colours aren’t as good as the lighter ones though) and this colour is beautiful. I don’t own anything else like it, its kind of a pinky nude but with purple undertones (does that even make sense?!) I LOVE IT.
Gloss: No answer for this, I don’t use lipgloss
Lashes : I very rarely wear false lashes, because I can’t be arsed and I always end up with one hanging off at the end of the night, so again no answer for this one.
Eyeshadow Palette : Stila Eye’s Are The Window Palette In Soul : This one was super difficult as well because I love eyeshadow. Eventually I narrowed it down to this Stila one and my NYX Custom Pro Palette (see my review here ). The Stila one won because the quality is a lot better. Just look at the colours in here! So pretty and a perfect selection for day and night looks!
Eyeliner: Bourjois Ultra Black Smoky Pencil Eyeliner : I don’t use liquid eyeliner a lot, so I don’t have a liquid favourite, but I love this pencil eyeliner. It’s perfect for creating smoky looks and I like to put it in the water line and then on the outer corner and crease to smudge out.
Setting spray : I don’t use it really so no answer!
Perfume : Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy: Don’t laugh at this, but this is my favourite perfume ever. This is my third bottle. I know it’s not the height of sophistication, and a lot of people get quite snobby about celebrity perfumes but this smells so good and I always get complimented on it. It’s a really sweet smell, and lasts really well too.
And that’s my ride or die products, don’t forget to head over to Abbie’s blog and check out hers! What products can you not do without?
