Tag: 10 Products I'd Repurchase If All My Makeup Disappeared

This tag has been spreading like wildfire on the beauty community, although it has died down a bit, I still find it super interesting. It's basically about if you lost all your makeup and could only buy 10 products, what would you buy? This was actually super hard for me because I often change products depending on the weather or just my mood haha although I do have some essential products that I absolutely love. It's also really fun to read/watch other people's tags because it shows what your favourite or essential products are.

I was tagged by Amy of the great blog http://prettypinklipss.blogspot.com.au and her Instagram is @amyppl to do this tag on Instagram (@amywenting) and I thought I might do a proper blogpost about it on my blog.

I tag anyone who wants to do this, it's actually a really fun tag in my opinion and allows you to try and think that if it came to only 10 products, what you would get for makeup.


1. Clinique Anti-Blemish Liquid Makeup in #2 Fresh Ivory
I only have the sample that I got a few months ago but I absolutely love this foundation and it has quickly zoomed to my favourite foundation. Also this little sample is actually lasting a while because you don't need too much for nice medium coverage. I also love how it feels really nice and has great oil control and matches my skin better than some other foundations because it more balances out my skin tone with more neutral tones than warm tones. Also the fact that it's anti-blemish makes me not feel guilty to wear makeup when I have tons of breakouts. 

2. Maybelline Dream Matte Powder in Beige
I do love my MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural but a bit of me likes this a tad more. It just seems to be better at controlling oil and making my face look more matte than the MAC powder previously mentioned. Also oil-free is always a perk.  

3. MAC Studiofinish Concealer in NC30
I wasn't sure whether to pick a concealer I prefer for blemishes or under eye circles but in the end I realised my skin has worse blemishes than under eye circles, which I can also cover with my foundation. This concealer is great for my blemishes and gives great coverage.

4. Bobbi Brown Blush in Nude Peach
This is my all time favourite blush yet. In my opinion, it's the perfect balance between a neutral blush and a peach blush. It also has the perfect amount of shimmer, a bit for a glow but not too over the top. It also isn't too pigmented so it's a no fuss blush. I love it.

5. Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
I have really oily eyelids that are prone to eyeshadow creasing but this primer keeps my eye makeup looking bright all night. It is an essential for me. 

6. Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Cement
I didn't really think this was the most necessary item in my list of 10 products but I bloody love it and it deserves to be a must-have. It just makes my eyes brighter without looking like i have makeup on. It also has a fantastic formula that is really creamy and it also helps to even out the skin tone around my eyes. It also is the perfect shade fitting with my skin but makes my eyes brighter. 

7. Urban Decay Naked Palette
I was really tossed about whether to choose this palette or the MAC one I made, which I know isn't technically one product but if fleurdeforce thinks that it's fair since tons of people are choosing an Urban Decay Naked Palette to choose a MAC quad then I think so too. However, even though I like my MAC quad more, I think the Urban Decay Naked Palette would be more practical because it let's me make natural and more dramatic looks

8. Tony Moly Gel Liner in Brown
This is my favourite liner. It has the most amazing formula that is so creamy and stays on really well. I love it!

9. Maybelline Lash Blast Volume Waterproof in Black Brown 
I always love this mascara, also the Fusion one. The formula is great and it doesn't smudge or flake on me and I always go back to it! One of my must-haves. 

10. Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus 
This is probably my all time lip product yet. The formula is just amazing and doesn't sink into the fine lines. It just is a great balm that gives really great natural lip colour and is the perfect balance between colour pigmentation and sheen and just feels really comfortable on the lips, not too heavy and not too sticky/glossy.
