10 Products I Would Repurchase TAG!

September 12, 2012 | , , ,

I've decided to do the TAG I've seen on YouTube for a month or two now, the 10 Products I Would Repurchase TAG! Imagine that one day you woke up to find that you lost your entire make up collection - What are the first 10 products that you would repurchase? 

It's hard to even contemplate losing all my make up but let's get into it! I'm going to try and create a full face of make up with these products 'cos, well, who wants just half a face of make up? If I have reviews of these products uploaded on my blog I'll be sure to link them! 

1. I have combination/oily skin so first off I need a foundation primer, regardless of how many products I am/am not allowed. I would buy Benefit's The POREfessional foundation primer in a heartbeat and, in fact, I repurchased it on the weekend.

2. For foundation I would purchase NARS' Sheer Glow foundation. This foundation is perfect for my skin type and is probably the most natural looking one I've ever used. Although I'm often trying other skin bases, I would be lost without this foundation.

3. Although it's not essential, I feel like I would need a concealer in my first ten products. My sister recently gave me Napoleon Perdis' Pro Palette Concealer and I really love it. Given that I have a limited amount of products, having three shades in one product will be a great way to cover everything.

4. I know I keep mentioning my skin type but these base products I chose are all to control oil etc. My MAC Studio Fix powder is a staple for me, staying in my hand bags at all time. I love the coverage it provides and, given it's a powder, it sets my foundation and concealer.

5. Now that I've been converted to contouring, there's no going back and I don't think I could live without my NARS bronzer in Laguna. I know this bronzer is overhyped, but it really is fantastic! I have hit pan on this bronzer and I'm so scared that I'll run out before I buy a new one.

6. I absolutely love my MAC Casual Colour in Keep it Loose! MAC described it as a warm peach colour, however I feel it's more of a mix between peach and baby pink. Either way, it's perfect on the cheeks. Unfortunately, however, this product has been discontinued so I feel bad recommending it. Before I bought the casual colour cream blush I loved NARS' Orgasm blush so that would definitely be my second choice.

7. My first eye product is a little bit sneaky. I absolutely love Urban Decay's Primer Potion, as well as their original Naked palette. Lucky for me, the Urban Decay original Naked palette comes with a mini Urban Decay Primer Potion and, although I'd love to repurchase the full size product, the mini will suffice until I have the funds to help get my collection back to where it was 'before'.  Although there are some eyeshadows (for example, I prefer Inglot's #395 eyeshadow to Virgin in the palette) I love more than those in the Urban Decay Naked palette, there are also some amazing colours in there and the 12 colours means that endless looks can be created!

8. I would repurchase my favourite mascara, Max Factor's Lash Extension Effect, in a heartbeat but, unfortunately, it's been discontinued! I have 5 unopened tubes waiting to be used but I assume they've all been stolen too, right? If so, I've become quite fond of Maybelline's Falsies Flared mascara in blackest black. Even though the result is very different to the Max Factor's Lash Extension Effect, it's a great product.

9. Lastly, I would repurchase my favourite lip balm, Maybelline's Baby Lips in Protective Berry. This lip balm is a fantastic products and I am never without it. I always have a spare as I never want to run out.

10. For lip colour I am loving my MAC lipstick in Creme Cup. It's a perfect pink/nude colour which works fantastic with any look, meaning it's the only lipstick I'd need for a while.

So, everyone, that's what I would repurchase. As I said, I can not imagine losing all my make up. Thinking about it is a little more than I can deal with. With that being said, at least I know have my shopping list should it ever happen?

  1. Have to say I didn't do a huge amount of thinking to come up with my 10 products, I have a pretty staple collection of things I use most days. I have really dry/sensitive skin so I'll just wear a tinted moisturizer most days/nights because my skin is really clear

    Laura Mercier Tinted moisturiser in porcelain
    Covergirl powder in #1
    Maybelline master precise liquid liner (because they discontinued my favourite MAC one :(
    MAC paint pot in Soft Ochre
    MAC eyeshadow in Woodwinked
    MAC eyeshadow in Shroom
    MAC eyeshadow in Sketch
    MAC lipglass in Almondine
    Lancome Doll Eyes Mascara
    and the Lancome blush in can't remember the colour but its really pretty something about peaches I think?

  2. As requested!
