Forgotten favourites

April 05, 2016


When you own more beauty products than the average/normal person, it's easy for things to be put aside and forgotten. As I spend most mornings battling against time, I often reach for the same few products everyday. Though in an attempt to switch things up a bit and get more use out of all of my collection, I've started to deliberately pick out a few products each month that I particularly want to get more use from.


The first product that I'm hoping to reach for more this month is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush. The hourglass blushes are one of my all time favourite blush formulas and i've been itching to buy a couple more shades, but want to make sure that i'm getting enough use out of the one I have before adding more.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder, is one of those products that at first seemed too pretty to use and over time I completely forgot I had it. Considering the price, it makes no sense to leave it collecting dust, especially as it's such a fantastic product. It's the perfect powder for banishing shine without leaving skin looking dull and 'cakey'. I've decided to throw it in my handbag to make sure i'll use it everyday.

With the arrival of spring, i've been really enjoying wearing light and shimmery champange eyeshadows, and rather than buy a stack of new ones, I've dug out some old favourites. The Nars eyeshadow duo in Alhambra is one of my all time favourite shadows as both the champagne and golden shade look beautiful washed over the entire lid and finished with lashings of mascara for a fresh and natural look. The Nars eyeshadow formula also can't be faulted as it blends beautifully and lasts well throughout the day. I also just recently rediscovered Chanel's cream eyeshadow in Emerveille and really need to get more use out of it before it completely dries up! The cream formula makes this the perfect choice for when I'm short on time in the morning but still want a wash of subtle colour and shimmer over the lids to open up my eye area and make me look a little bit more put together!

Finally, Charlotte Tilbury's K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in 'Bitch Perfect' is a rather new purchase, so it's not this specific product that I've forgotten about over time, but rather lipstick itself that I'm often guilty of forgetting to apply at all! As this is such a beautiful shade that's easy to wear and apply, I really want to make a conscious effort to remember to wear it more. Hopefully by keeping it in my bag next to my lip balm i'll remember to quickly top up throughout the day.

Are there any products that you've rediscovered recently?

  1. I want to try the Chanel powder because everyone who has it, loves it! I also like to set aside some products each month to use more. It definitely helps and I always end up rediscovering products I stopped using for some reason :)
