I have been keeping some of my empty makeup products in a bag for a few months now so I can let you know my thoughts.


Lets start with base:


Nars Sheer Glow Foundation

I love this foundation. I have already re-purchased it. I have this foundation in shade Deuville for an everyday and the shade Barcelona for when I’m fake tanned. This is a medium coverage foundation, very glowy and dewy as the name suggests. I just find this is such a nice foundation for every day it has good coverage and doesn’t look cakey. Such a good shade range as well.



I love concealer I have so many but if I’m honest I always go back to my trusty collection lasting perfection. I have gone through countless amounts of the stuff! However I have loved these 3 concealer’s.

Mac Pro Long Wear Concealer  – This is amazing for under the eye so glowy and gorgeous coverage I like a more yellow toned concealer so this one is great for me.

LA Girl Pro Concealer’s  I find this Concealer is so good for the price, its only £3.99! I have gone through about 4 of these so far, such good coverage and very long-lasting.

Nars Creamy Conclear I did like this concealer as I did use it all up, I’m not sure if its worth the price tag. I didn’t think it was anything special but I did have a shade too dark for me so I only used it once I was fake tanned so maybe I will give it a go in a shade that’s right for me.



Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Pressed Powder – This is a lovely pale yellow sheer powder I loved using this to get rid of some of the shine on my T-Zone. This powder is also nice for under the eye.

Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural – This is one of my favorite powders it’s so soft and has a very nice amount of coverage I will definitely purchase again.



Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – I love this mascara I have loaaadddsss of mascaras on the go at the moment but I don’t seem to like any of them as much as this one and my Chanel (my holy grail mascara) I really want to purchase a new one as I have a travel size which I am using at the moment but thats nearly all gone aswell. This mascara is so thickening and volumizing.

Max Factor False Lash Effect – As you can see this is an old mascara its been in my empties box for a while. I did really like this mascara I used it all up but it wasn’t anything special enough for me to say rush out and buy it.



I use liquid liner almost every time I wear makeup so I’ve gone through a fair amount of eyeliner. I’m not too fussy when it comes to felt liners which are the type of eyeliner I go for.

Bobbi Brown Ink Liner – This was a nice eyeliner, it lasted me ages before it dried out and it’s very easy to use.

Loreal Super Liner Perfect Slim – This is the eyeliner I use every day and I have so many of them, I already have a new one lined up as I’ve used this one up. It’s the easiest eyeliner to use not to thick not to thin so perfect for winged liner.


Lip Gloss

Tanya Burr Cosmetics lip gloss in Chic – This was such a pretty nude lip gloss with pink undertones. I loved the applicator and I did want to pick another up but I think it has been discontinued which is a shame.

I hope you enjoyed hearing about some products I’ve used up!

With Love Helena xx
