My Most Repurchased Beauty Products

These aren’t going to be the most prettiest of pictures, sorry about that! These are well used, bashed about products. I mean look at the state of the Collection concealer, I’m so sorry. But, it’s testament to how much I use these and indeed repurchase the products. The products mentioned are either ones I have constantly in use or I return to after foolishly venturing away to see if there’s something better.

favourite beauty products

I’ll start with the Illamasqua blusher in Katie. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve purchased this. It’s just the perfect candy pink for light skin tones. It blends easily, with great pigmentation and lasts pretty much all day. 

Estee Lauder’s Sumptuous Infinite Mascara is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever used. It adds little bits of fibre to the lashes to give them length and volume. It doesn’t clump or smudge, and volume lasts all day. Just brilliant.

And another favourite from Estee Lauder, this time it’s their Double Wear foundation. I’m yet to find a better foundation for longevity and coverage. It lasts all day on my combination skin. It can be a bit tricky initially as it sets relatively quickly but once you’ve mastered it it’s just the best foundation.

Similarly Collection Lasting Perfection concealer can initially be a bit tricky. It’s a full coverage, thick concealer that sets quite fast. The trick is to pat pat pat this concealer out or it will look cakey. Coverage is brilliant as is longevity, such a great budget buy.

The one lipstick I have the most of is MAC’s Ruby Woo. It’s the perfect cool-toned matte red. It lasts for absolutely ages on the lips and just looks fantastic on cool skin tones. It’s a cult classic for a reason.

I’m not very loyal when it comes to hair products. I chop and change shampoo and conditioners all the time but there’s a couple of products that I always repurchase and that’s Elnett hairspray and Tresemme Keratin Smooth Treatment. I love Elnett hairspray because it gives strong hold without being obvious or making your hair feel like straw. It brushes out easily and you don’t get any of those white flakes that can happen with some other hairsprays. 

I’ve been using the Tresemme cream since it launched a couple of years ago. I don’t think it’d hold really curly hair but it keeps my slightly wavy and very thick hair in check. It just makes styling that bit easier. I’d definitely recommend if you have thick, unruly hair. 

I’ve not photographed it but I should definitely mention Phyto Botanical Straightening Balm. This is a dream of a product for my hair. It smooths and gives a beautiful shine. My hair always looks much more healthy after using this and much more manageable too. 

And finally, the two nail polishes I have the most of: Essie and Barry M. Essie have the most amazing range of colours. I find them easy to apply and they last well on my nails. A cheaper but just as good alternative is Barry M polishes. Again the colour selection is great (although I do prefer Essie) but they last amazingly well on my nails and are super easy to apply. Whenever I feel like treating myself but don’t have very much money I’ll always pick up either an Essie polish or one from Barry M.

There’s a few things not included in the photos that I definitely need to mention. I’m such a great blogger, oops. The one cleanser that I repurchase over and over again is Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. It’s not shown because I’m waiting for a new batch to arrive. It’s the best cleanser to remove everything with ease, and do so thoroughly without aggravating my sensitive skin. If you haven’t tried it I highly recommend it. 

I’ve also forgot to photograph Carmex lip balms. I have lots lying about: beside my bed, on my dresser, in my bag, and assorted pockets. I use other lip balms too but I love Carmex, it’s definitely the one lip balm I’m never without.

I’ve also forgot to include Batiste Dry Shampoo. I always have a can of this in my bathroom for emergencies, or on days I can’t be bothered to wash my hair. A little goes a long way with this product. So go gently.

If you’ve read all this thanks! I appreciate you sticking it out.

    I have combination skin too and I've been eyeing up double wear for ages now. As soon as my mac studio fix finishes up I'm going to splurge I think!

      I really love it. I think it can take a wee bit getting used to but it's a really great, long-lasting foundation xx

    I just got the Collection concealer a few weeks ago and my hand always comes away so inky from holding the tube! A minor irritation as at least it's almost ink free now! :p
    Some really great picks here! I think my most repurchased product is either Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo or Max Factor Stay Flawless Primer!

      oh I'll need to check those out. I've just started using a Dove conditioner and it's brilliant! I've never really used their haircare before but I'll certainly be trying out some more! x

    I'm definitely with you on the Double Wear foundation and the mascara; they're just fantastic. My other long-running product is Rimmel's Kohl eyeliner; I've worn it since I was about 17 😀 x

    Where did you get that pump from for your EL foundation?

      Hello! I got it from a shop called The Cosmetics Company Store from Livingston Designer outlet, but I think there might be a few of them elsewhere. I did look online but couldn't find it.
