There was a time when I would not buy makeup that wasn't from the self-selection in Boots. Mainly because I didn't really know much about makeup and I didn't fancy forking out £25 for a foundation simply to experiment with. Cheap and cheerful, that was my makeup bag! However, having gathered my makeup all together (usually strewn accross my room) I've noticed that I have succumbed to a kind of 'makeup snobbery'. I blame the blogs; reading about the 'holy grail' products of other bloggers has definitely influenced me to spend more on makeup than what my mother might approve of. That and of course my best friend Freya is ABSOLUTELY addcited to makeup it's scary (she convinced me to blow £20 on the Touche Éclat on a whim in duty free - although I did need a new concealer and it is AMAZING). Although I do still use my old favourites from NO.7 and Rimmel!
My absolute favourite products here are Real Technique brushes (if you haven't already invested in these then you must!), the MAC Skin Finish Natural which is perfect for setting foundation, and the Touche Éclat.
The one product I won't be repurchasing is the ELF Eyebrow Kit - can anyone PLEASE recommend me a really good product for eyebrows? (You can read about my eyebrow angst here) x
PS. They seem to have discontinued the Benefit Eyeliner I use (how long have I HAD it?!) but I guess this is pretty much the same.
