The Repurchased

November 10, 2014

When it comes to make-up, I'm no stranger to trying new things. However, as fun as this can be, sometimes you discover products that you just fall head over heels for and simply can't live without. I name these the repurchased - the one's where upon squeezing out the last drop evokes a sense very akin to fear and results in a panicked dash to repurchase the empty product immediately. (Okay, perhaps slightly dramatic, and besides, I buy back ups!!)

If you've been hanging around these parts for a while, then it probably comes as no surprise that Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation is top of my repurchased list - In fact I think this is my fourth or fifth bottle. I have to admit, i'm in a bit of a foundation rut, but for good reason. A small blob of this buffed into skin leaves a natural and luminous (but not shiny) finish that lasts well throughout the day. It's also one of the few foundation's to offer a shade pale enough for my ghost-like complexion. Urban Decay's All Nighter Make-up Setting Spray is another one of those products that I've repurchased multiple times (so much so i've lost count!). A couple of spritzes sets everything in place and really helps to keep things looking 'just applied' for a lot longer. It comes in particularly useful if you've got a long day ahead or if its a bit hot and sticky outside.

I never wear eyeshadow without Nars' Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base underneath so this was another inevitable repurchase. I've tried multiple primers in the past, but for me, none work quite as well as this one. Essie's Fiji nail polish is perhaps my favourite shade, ever, so of course a repurchase was a must. This is my third bottle, though the first one I lost (and still haven't found, how does this happen?!) and I'm sure it won't be my last. It might be a spring/summer pastel hue, but that doesn't stop me wearing it all year round.

Finally, L'Oreal's Miss Manga Mascara is one of the newest additions to my repurchased list. I've always been a huge fan of L'Oreal's Volume Million's Mascara, but after trying this newer release, I think I might just prefer it. It's also £2 cheaper, win, win

  3. I just recently repurchased the L'oreal mascara as well. Maybelline the Rocket is still my favourite, but this one definitely comes very near it :)

  4. I've heard so much about Essie Fiji but every time I see it in stores I find it to be a much darker pink than expected. It's still a stunning colour but perhaps not for me.
    The Urban Decay All Nighter Spray is fantastic. I use it every day as I have more oily skin and this works wonders for me! xx

  10. Never used a setting spray, normally my face primer under makeup does the job but I may give this a go for the whole 'just applied' thing :-)
