TAG: 11 Most Reached For Products

Dee posted this tag yesterday and it looks like a good one so I thought I would give it a go!

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb is my newest favourite perfume. It's really expensive so I use it sparingly but, it is the scent that I reach for most often because I love it so much!

As I have repeatedly said, MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural is my Holy Grail face product. A really lightweight baked powder that provides enough coverage that it can be used alone as a foundation or as a setting powder over liquid foundation. 

This kind of goes along with the MSFN mentioned above as I use it to buff the powder into my skin which kind of adds to the flawless, airbrushed effect it gives. However, I also use this brush to buff out the edges of blusher and bronzer so the effect is quite natural.

The Seavite Organic Seaweed Moisturiser is my Holy Grail skincare item. I cannot go longer than a few days trying another moisturiser without crawling back to this one. It's dear at about €25 but, it's very much worth it as, 9 times out of 10 I can leave the house with just this on, giving me a healthy glow and making my skin look nice.

I have become obsessed with grooming my brows lately and, having tried a myriad of products, I have come to rest happily with my MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Fling. It's the perfect colour for me and can be built depending how intense I want my brows to be. 

Whenever my skin feels gross and in need of a good clean, I always turn to the Inecto Pure Coconut Milk Exfoliating Facial Scrub. I picked this up in Laznarote last year but, Magner's Pharmacy carries the range and it comes in at about €3. It's gentle enough to use daily while still being thoroughly cleansing and smells divine!

I cannot say enough good things about MAC Fix+. I use this spray to set my MSFN and foundation whenever I wear it. I can't leave the house without using it to set my make-up and remove the powdery or heavy appearance of make-up.

MAC Blush Powder in Prism is my go-to shade. It's a tan-ish pink that is very natural and flattering, especially on paler skintones. I love blush and have a lot of MAC ones as the range of colours and finishes is brilliant but, I just seem to gravitate most towards this shade! 

I literally cannot do my eye make-up without this brush, the MAC 217. So much so that I own two of them! It is the perfect shape and width to apply colour to my crease and blends the shadow as it applies it. 

I have raved about YSL Touche Éclat before and for good reason. I don't really do concealer but, instead, I use this to highlight and conceal any blemishes that I may have. The fact that it is so watery and creamy makes  it really easy to apply and blend. I always carry it in my bag as it has saved the day more than a few times!

I can't go to sleep ever without putting Vaseline on my lips. Similarly, I can't stand when my lips are chapped and sore and I have nothing to soothe them so I literally have a pot of Vaseline everywhere!  I have two of the original blue ones in my room; one on my bedside table and one on my desk (God forbid I would have to reach for one or the other!), a rose one in my bag, an aloe vera one in my gym bag and an SPF one that I use when its sunny.

    The eyebrow pencil is def on my list too!

  2. Ooh I've had a run in with the St. Ives one...very harsh I found! x
