The Repurchases

Buying makeup is great, I love the excitement that comes with trying new products but there’s some staples in my stash that have earned themselves serious holy grail status meaning running out of them is something I’m not willing to accept, and I rush out to repurchase them like my life depends on it. On a recent session of late night shopping I found myself on Feel Unique topping up on some recent empties so I thought hey, why not blog about them! It’s about time I dedicate a post to these gems.

The first thing that went in my basket was my all time favourite holy grail Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. My old one started to dry up and my heart began to break as I realised no other concealer will ever compare to this for covering my pesky dark circles. I love the amount of coverage it gives without leaving my eyes looking dry and cakey *vom*. Naked Skin, I love you.

The next repurchase was the Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Powerless Foundation, and honestly this has been the foundation I’ve worn practically daily throughout the summer. I’m a bit of a foundation snob, I rarely get on with drugstore options but this has the perfect formula that I’d be willing to pay highend prices for. Everything about this foundation just works for my skin, it keeps me matte whilst giving me medium to full coverage that doesn’t leave me looking like a caked up mess.

I also decided to pick up the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer which used to be my holy grail a few years ago so I thought it was time I finally tried it again. It brings back memories of when Maybelline did this in a foundation and I mean we’re going back years now, does anyone else remember that? Anyway, I’ve used it a few times now and I’m really liking it, not as much as the UD Naked Skin but it’s still a nice concealer for everyday wear.

Oh look, another Maybelline product – can you tell I have a real love for them? The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is one I really can’t be without, I use this absolutely everyday and I never seem to try any others. When it comes to mascara I’m really boring so once I’ve found one I like I just seem to stick to it. Lash Sensational adds the perfect amount of length and volume and it lasts all day without smudging on my super watery eyes. 

So those are some of the products I can’t be without, what are some of your holy grails?

  • Guess I need the Naked concealer and the Maybelline foundation now. I adore the Maybelline concealer, I can't believe I've lived without it until I bought it a week ago!

    • You really do need to try it! I've been liking the Maybelline more and more every time I use it.

      P.s. So glad to see you back again! xo

  • I really didn't get along with the maybelline foundation! It made my oily skin so greasy and didn't last at all I was so disappointed! But I really want to try the UD concealer it has so many raving reviews and if it covers dark circles i'm in! Love this little haul and such amazing pictures!

    • That's a shame you didn't get along with the foundation, I hate it when that happens with products. You need to try the UD concealer, it's the concealer of all concealers! And thank you, that means a lot! xo

  • I would love to try the fit me foundation from maybelline but I have dry skin so not sure how it would work with my skin type

    • As long as you've got a strong moisturiser/illuminating primer I think you'd be alright, for a matte foundation I don't really find it that drying. xo

  • I love the maybelline concealer!!

  • The Fit Me foundation is great, but the lightest shade isn't pale enough for my natural skin so I can only use it when I've fake tanned!! 🙁

    I Love love love the Urban Decay concealer! Such a fab product. X

    • I find that with the shading, luckily I've been keeping up a tan routine so it matches me but they lack in lighter colours! xo

  • Lash Sensational is my go-to everyday mascara totally in love with it!

  • I think I will forever repurchase the Maybelline mascara as it's so amazing and I love that it's drugstore so a good bargain too! I actually haven't picked up the Maybelline Eraser concealer for ages and need to! I remember how much I loved it! One of my drugstore repurchases will always be the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation, L'Oreal doesn't tend to work for my skin as it shows me pores – I love it when you find a product that's perfect for you! xx

    • No mascara will ever come close to the love I have for this. I've heard great things about the Rimmel foundations, I'll have to give them a try. I'm exactly the same with L'Oreal! xo

  • I have repurchased every single one of these things!
    Especially the Urban Decay Naked Weightless Concealer I am now on my third tube!

  • I have purchased the lash sensation but haven't cracked into yet! I'm just waiting to use it up my other 6 or 7 haha!!

    • You're a true mascara addict! But it's so good, I'm sure you'll love it! xo
