Beauty Repurchased Makeup

I have such a large collection of cosmetics it was really hard to find a few products that I liked the most and repurchase, I buy far too much makeup than I will ever need!!

Here are a few things that I have really loved in 2012

Bonne Bell blend'nglow in natural blush.

This is the one and only Bronzer/Highlighter that I have ever found that matches my fair skintone.   The four shades can be used individually as bronzer, blush and highlighter or a general sweep over the entire pan can be used for an all over healthy glow.  Natural matte like finish with just a little bit of glow, perfect for my skin, I use this exclusively to contour my entire face.  I have to purchase this from because it isn't available in Australia.

EVERYDAY MINERALS MULTI-TASKING NEUTRAL - SEMI-MATTE mineral powder.   I can't wear mineral powder on its own because it is too drying on my skin. I love to use this product for setting my liquid foundation or when I am wearing BB cream and want a little bit of extra coverage.  I have been using EDM for years and this is always the powder I reach for, nothing else compares.

ALMAY ONE COAT GET UP AND GROW MASCARA.  This is the mascara that I reach for most often and have repurchased several times.  I have very sensitive eyes that itch like crazy when they come in contact with anything foreign and this is one of the very few mascaras that does not irritate my eyes.  Thickens and lengthens and stays put.  I really like Eye of Horus Mascara too but I haven't had to repurchase that yet but I will.

ELISHACOY ALWAYS NUDDY BB CREAM.  I have tried many BB creams but this is the one that I have repurchased.  Gel like texture that leaves your face with a healthy glow, doesn't break down or settle in your pores, lasts all day and is a great base for mineral foundation.  Recommended for all skin types but I have found that this is more moisturising than other BB creams which is probably why I prefer it, I don't think it would be suitable for oily skin.

My favourite cosmetic is Lip Gloss, I don't wear lipstick as I find it too drying but I have lip gloss everywhere!  I love MIRENESSE LIP GLOSS.  They come in sheer glosses, sparkle, shimmer and matte shades.  Super moisturising, long lasting and the colour range is fantastic.  Another lipgloss that I have fallen in love with this year is;

MUA Makeup Academy Intense Kisses Lip Gloss, my favourite shade is Sealed with a Kiss.  Lovely creamy matte musky rose, non-sticky long lasting formula, for a budget lipgloss these really are the best.  Available online at or Superdrug, they do ship internationally.  This is a good brand of cosmetics, very reasonably priced and I have loved everything I have purchased from there so far.

My all time favourite go too eyeshadow would have to be Covergirl Eye Enhancers Tapestry Taupe.  Very very popular with Beauty Bloggers worldwide, you can find it on Amazon, Ebay and Priceline have it here as part of a quad called 'Country Woods'.  This is a magical eyeshadow that can be worn on its own but depending on the light lookes multi-dimensional.  Very buildable colour which makes a great smoky eye for very fair skin and stays put all day.  Everyone should have this in their beauty collection.

My all time favourite concealer is Benefit Erase Paste in fair.


This is just the best concealer, great coverage and very blendable.  I conceal under my eyes after foundation, I just pat this in and I'm good all day.  Doesn't build up in the creases and give me an extra boost of moisture, while brightening my under eye area.  What I like best about this concealer is I don't need to set with powder which can be very drying on my skin and accentuate lines.

This was a very difficult blog to write as there are so many favourites but these are just some of the ones I find my self using every day.

Please don't forget to leave a comment, I would love to hear what some of your favourites are.
