Favourites of 2012: Makeup pt 1: Face Products

So this post would usually be my monthly favourites, but seeing as it is the new year I thought I would do my favourites of 2012.

Foundation: My long term favourite has been Bourjois healthy mix, but recently I have discovered Rimmel 25 hour which gives more coverage. So the bourjois is great for a good skin day, and the Rimmel for a bad skin day.

Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte - Translucent. Just a great powder, keeps the oil at bay and gives a nice matte, but not cakey, finish.

Primer: Benefit That Gal - I love this primer, its great to perk up my skin when it is having a dull day. I also use this over my foundation under my eyes to disguise dark circles.

Blush: Vivo Baked Blush - Peaches and Cream - I really like this blush, its such a pretty colour. Maybe more coral than peach though.

Concealer - Revlon Photoready - A really creamy concealer that doesnt cake. Its not perfect for under eyes and when I do use it for that I make sure to powder like crazy or it will crease. But it is great for spots and discolouration.

  1. I've heard so many good things about the Rimmel stay matte powder... Think i will have to try it! Xx

  2. Everyone has the Rimmel stay matte powder on their lists! I need to buy it!

  3. Love the bourjois foundation too! xx

  4. I swore by the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder not too long ago but then I dropped it and it broke... Forgot to repurchase, might have to again. Rimmel 25 hours and Healthy Mix are two of my favourite foundations too! xxx

  5. The vivo blush looks so nice but I don't live near a Tescos :) x

  6. I seriously can't wait till I finish all my foundations so I can buy the blimmin bourjois healthy mix (or rimmel wake me up) already!
