The Make Up I Could Not Live Without



I was looking through all my make up the other day, which yes is admittedly a little bit of a strange thing to do. Nonetheless I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Whilst I was going through my make up bag I noticed all the products I use on a daily basis and there are a lot! So I thought I would share the products I use on a daily basis with you lot.


Rimmel's Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Apocaliptic.


I very quickly became obsessed with Apocalips when they first came out earlier this year. I have 5 of them in Celestial, Nova, Apocaliptic, Stellar and Big Bang but Apocaliptic is by far my favourite. The colour is absolutely stunning and super wearable.


 6 months ago I would have never had the courage to wear this but it is such a fabulous colour that I have nearly used up my first tube. A slick of this fabulous lip lacquer completes my make up and without it I feel a bit lost. What do you think?
  
MAC False Lashes in Extreme Black

MAC False Lashes in Extreme Black

MAC is one of my favourite brands, when I went to New York last year I stocked up as it is quite pricey but my God is it worth it. This mascara is utterly fabulous, it lengthens and curls the lashes whilst giving absolutely fabulous clump-free coverage.

I have awful sleeping habits. I have reversed my sleeping pattern on more than one occasion and once I went 10 days without a decent night's sleep. Needless to say I looked and felt awful! Now I don't want to jinx myself but recently my sleeping pattern has been fairly good but for those times when I don't get any sleep this concealer works absolute wonders on my under eye baggage. So instead of looking knackered I just feel it and no one is any the wiser that I stayed up until 5 in the morning watching Glee.
  

Barry M's Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Satsuma

I have mentioned this gorgeous nail polish in a previous blog post (you can read it here) and it has become a firm favourite. The colour is absolutely stunning and somehow manages to make even my deathly pale skin seem tanned.

It only takes two coats to be completely opaque and with a top coat can last up to 4 days without any chips. Seeing that sexy colour on my nails makes me feel so happy. I cannot recommend it enough.


Soap & Glory's Super Fabu-Lipstick in Pom Pom

I am a huge fan of Soap & Glory, their make up is not only beautifully packaged with those gorgeous black and white pin ups but absolutely fabulous too and this lipstick is no exception. On days when I am not wearing Apocaliptic I am wearing this.

The colour is so pretty and so wearable. However it does dry out my lips a little bit so I apply some lip balm beforehand. If I had to choose only one lipstick to wear for the rest of my life it would be this one. I never ever leave home without it.


Soap & Glory's Hand Food

This beautiful smelling hand cream is a handbag staple. As embarrissing as this is to admit I can be a bit of germophobe where my hands are concerned and I wash them quite a lot. So I carry this handcream with me to stop my hands from drying out and becoming sore. It smells so good and works wonders on my poor dehydrated hands.


Collection 2000's Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner

Collection 2000's Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner

To put it simply I could not live happily without this eyeliner, and at only £2.99 it is a total bargain. I have been wearing black eyeliner since I was 14 and in the 8 years since I have found only one eyeliner that I have been able to draw winged liner with, this eyeliner.

Before I found this eyeliner I could never wing my eyeliner without making a total mess. It is absolute fabulous and I would be lost without it.  


Nivea Raspberry Rose Lip Butter

Until I discovered this gorgeous smelling lip butter I carried tins of Vaseline with me at all times but I really hated the greasy, slimy texture of Vaseline and then I found this which has the smooth, lovely texture of body butter - the clue is in the name (: - and smells of raspberries and happiness. I never go anywhere without it. As I have mentioned twice already it smells utterly divine, but the reason I love it so much is for the intense hydration it provides, it’s the best lip balm I have come across.


Nails Inc in Kensington Park Road

A couple of weeks back I mentioned a minor shopping spree that resulted in me spending nearly £70 on nail polish, well this beautiful shade of blue was one of those purchased during that particular moment of madness and it's my favourite.

 Whilst it does say Neon Shade on the bottle there is nothing neon about it. However it is the most gorgeous shade of blue.

It was opaque after just the one coat but in this picture I did two, it also lasts a good few days. I love the colour so much that this has become a  fast and firm favourite. I use it at least once a week because I love it that much

So guys those are some of my favourite make up and beauty products. What are yours? What products could you not live without?
