Makeup Must Haves! || SBBC

September 18, 2013

 So today's challenge is as follows:
"10 desert island items – if all your makeup was taken and you could only repurchase 10 things what would they be and why?"
Now on first glance, I expected today's challenge to be quite difficult to limit it down to just ten beauty items. (I'm not including cleanser in this list, or anything like that), but I've got a nice little list written down here, which i'm quite happy with.
(A quick note, if you're interested in purchasing any of the items mentioned, I will put links up, and none of the photos of the products are mine. They are taken from the website that will be linked.)

1. Top of the list, as always, is my Collection 2000 Concealer (in Number 3 - Medium.) My reasoning for taking this product with me is that it is my lifesaver in the mornings. It covers my dark circles brilliantly, and my blemishes too. It's also not too heavy, so I don't feel like i'm wearing makeup.

2.  Next up is my Maybelline "The Rocket" Mascara. This is great for making my lashes look longer, and more voluminous, and it doesn't clump, which is always a plus!

3. My "Simple" Moisturiser. This is cheap, and great. Considering it's under a fiver, it's absolutely brilliant. My skin feels great after it, and it looks brighter, and more awake. It also has no chemicals in it, so it's not doing anything bad to my skin.

4. My "Palmers Cocoa Butter Lip Balm. I cannot rave about this enough. I must have gone through about 10 of them this year alone, I love them that much, the product itself is great, and it protects my lips from the sun.

5. My Sleek palette in "Au Naturel". I mainly use this for the colour "Bark" (Second row, third along), as it's perfect for my eyebrows, but the other colours would work as a neutral eye colour.

6. Right now i'm loving my Kate Moss lipstick in 19. it's a nude shade, but it has some red in it, to make it more pink, and it's super flattering. i would take this because it's easily wearable with anything.

7. My Sleek face contour palette. It's one of my most loved products, and one of the few that I use every day without fail. It shapes my (unnaturally round) face!

8. My Gel Eyeliner from Maybelline. Yes I am in love with this. It's used every single day, just a subtle line along my top lid. I would take it as it opens up my eyes more.

9. Eyebrow tweezers! You don't want a monobrow, do you?

10. My eyelash curlers, because they open up my, very small, eyes!

So tell me, what are your top ten items?
