10 Things I would Repurchase

I've been meaning to do a post like this for a while. I wanted to do a post on all the products I love so when Lauren from All things beauty, make up and shopping tagged us in this I was pleased.

I think there is a big difference between liking a product and going out and repurchasing a product repeatedly. These are my top 10 products I'd go and re buy at the moment.

1. Revlon ColorStay Foundation in shade 220 natural beige. 

Revlon Color Stay

If you have pale skin I cannot recommend this enough. They have such variety for pale shades. I'm the fourth shade in this range and for comparison Mac NW20 is too dark for me. This blends beautifully into the skin and really does last. Perfect for oily/combination skin types.

2. Origins Super Spot Remover

This deserves all the raves it has gotten. It really does shrink and heal spots quicker. It's worth every penny and I can see it lasting a while.

3. Mac large contour brush 168 and Real Techniques Stippling brush.

Mac 168 brush and Real Techniques stippling brush

These are the two brushes I couldn't do without. I probably prefer the Mac one more but purely because if needed I could apply my foundation with fingers. As you can see they need washing (bad blogger). They are used most days and I love them. 

4. Sleek blush by 3 palette in Lace, No7 blush in Honey and Mac MSF in Soft and Gentle. Technically three items but these three products make up my daily cheeks. The No7 blush is the perfect contour shade!


All three of these are amazing, I use the No7 under my cheek bone, One of my sleek blushers on the apples of the cheeks and my Mac MSF to highlight. They look amazing together.

5. Rimmel Match Perfection 2 in 1 concealer and highlighter.

Rimmel Match Perfection

I prefer this to the cult blogger fave collection 2000 one, I really like how it can be used to cover blemishes and how it brightens my under eye area. It lasts all day. The only down side is it has a brush applicator so isn't great when being used on spots (hello bacteria) but it's easy to apply to the hand then on the face.

6. Lauren's Way Darker than Dark

Lauren's way tan review

I was very sceptical of this product. Could a celeb branded product beat St Tropez. After seeing so many positive reviews and the fact it's lots cheaper than St Tropez I had to try it. It really gives a lovely colour, fades well and best of all no fake tan smell. And don't worry it doesn't turn you Orange.7

7. Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb

This perfume is amazing and worth every pretty penny it costs. The smell is divine and really lasts all day. This had finally knocked Vera Wang Princess of my top spot.

8. No7 Top Coat

No7 Top coat

This top coat is very quick drying and leaves nails with such a glossy finish. It's amazing and has already been repurchased twice! I always use my boots vouchers to buy at least one bottle of this.

9.  Maybelline Colossal Volume 

Maybelline Colossal Volume

No repurchase or love list would be complete without this product for me. I've been using it for 3-4 years now and while I've tried many others I always go back to this one. It gives amazing volume, doesn't flake off and just makes lashes look beautiful.

10. MUA Heaven and Earth Palette

MUA heaven and earth palette

As you can see, well loved and well used. I love this, I use it most days. I love that it also contains a colour perfect for my eyebrows and the shadows are long lasting and don't leave you with tons of fall out down your face.

That's my list. I haven't included skin care or lipsticks as I love so many lipsticks I couldn't put one and my tastes change a lot and while I love my Clinique and Origins moisturisers I'm not done trying out other.

Is any of the stuff on my list on yours?

I tag, but would love to see any of these anybody does. I think posts like this are so helpful to see what people really love
