Continuing on with my ‘5 Things’ series. Today’s post is the 5 makeup products you definitely need. To be honest I probably could of added a few more, but then it wouldn’t be sticking to my ‘5 Things’ series.
2. Benefit Benebalm – I’m very picky when it comes to using lip balms, as most tend to leave a residue on my lips. But with the Benefit Benebalm, I do not get this problem at all. It gives your lips a rose-tinted sheer colour, and with mango butter and sodium hyaluronate, it leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth!
3. Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara – One of my favourites drugstore mascara’s. With its unique brush it volumes and lengthens my lashes which lasts for up to 10 hours! Full review of this mascara can be found here.
4. Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner – The only eyeliner that I have used for over 8 years and not once has it let me down. It is a dupe of the MAC Techankohl Liner, but cheaper at a price of £6, compared to MAC’s price of £14. This eyeliner has a creamy formula that glides on smooth to the eye line and it is also a retractable pencil, so no need for sharpening!
5. Clean & Clear Oil Control Film – One of the best beauty inventions ever. BLOTTING PAPER. Also one of the best blotting paper I have ever used, its not like The Body Shop’s one where they are like tissue paper. Great to absorb excess oil and shine without ruining your make-up. If you’re like me that have oily skin, the results are a bit gross. Sadly, you can’t buy this in the UK. I buy mine from Hong Kong, so whenever I go back I buy at least 30 packs, and the sales assistant look at me as if I am mad woman. haha.
