MAC Products Worth the Hype

Satin Lipstick in M.A.C Red|Fluidline Liner in Blacktrack|Paintpot in Painterly.

When I first started blogging MAC was such a huge trend; if you weren’t talking about MAC then you weren’t worth reading however the hype seems to have died down a bit and now the real star products are shining through. I’m not the hugest fan of MAC mainly due to its price and lack of pale foundation shades but I have three products that I believe are worth the hype and I use them in both my own personal collection and also in my professional kit.

Becoming A Low Maintenance Makeup User

P1210224P1230823

Now don’t think I don’t love make-up anymore because my make-up collection is still as large as ever however I have most definitely become a lot more low maintenance about how much make-up I am wearing on a day to day basis. I love a good smokey eye but possibly not on a Monday morning when i’m sitting in my pyjamas munching on some toast.

Ever since stopping wearing foundation on a day to day basis my skin is looking so much more radiant and I barely wear foundation unless its a special occasion or i’m having a bad face day. Mascara is still a must if i’m leaving the house to see people but now I will scurry round to the shops without anything on my peepers-baby steps people! Lips I have completely ditched anything red or berry toned and really only where nude colours. This I feel is just because of the season and I will be back wearing red lipstick as soon as winter rolls round.

Are you more low maintenance or high maintenance make-up girl?

The Re-Purchasables

Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume|Olay Refreshing Toner|Clinique All About Eyes|Maybelline The Eraser Eye|Nivea Express Hydration.

Every month I have a collection of favourites but very few items make the re-purchasable list, here a few products that I can’t live without!

Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara£17.00

I dubbed this my holy grail mascara and so far nothing has beaten this, it lengthens and adds lashings of volume to your lashes. It doesn’t flake but is easy to remove which I think is the perfect combination. Although not the cheapest of mascaras I think its well worth spending your pennies on!

Olay Refreshing Toner£2.99

Although not the most exciting product I use this in both the evening and morning to refresh my face as well as remove any unwanted dirt. Its effective, doesn’t dry out your skin and won’t break the bank – so you can by that mascara!

Clinique All About Eyes – £26.00

Eye creams are a little like marmite and I used to be a hater until i discovered this gem from Clinique. You can feel it soothing and hydrating your under eyes as soon as its applied. A real luxury product but a little bit goes a long way so it’s definitely an investment.

Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer£7.99

As someone who adores the full coverage look this concealer is my new best friend. Full coverage, easy to blend and with a yellow undertone to cover up any discolouration who wouldn’t love this, plus its under £10. The applicator I love but can be removed if your hygiene alarms are going off.

Nivea Express Hydration Primer£4.99

I start nearly every day with this moisturiser primer hybrid. It hydrates me skin whilst also prepping my skin for my make-up and helping it last the day. Again a super inexpensive product which really works.
