YSL Touche Elcat Foundation | £32
I used to love this foundation. Its a lightweight foundation with medium coverage, that blurs flaws and imperfections without masking or hiding the natural contours of the face. It also has a very subtle glow to it and has good staying power. This has recently been formulated and I'm intrigued to see how they to compare. Although I'm going to try to this more before I buy that one, I use the term 'try' very losey!
Bourjois Health Mix Foundation | £9.99
Another old favourite. This is actually very similar to Touche Elcat, although this has a bit more glow about it. This is a great drugstore option, it has a good medium, buildable coverage and brilliant staying power. I'm definitly going to give this some more love!
Bourjois Happy Light Luminous Serum Primer | £10.99
I found this when doing my Primers | The Good, The bad and The ugly post. And specifically saved it for this post. It would have definitely been in the Good category of that post! Its the primer that made me fall in love with primers. Its feather light, with the silky texture of serum. It melts into the skin like a dream. Leaving behind a super smooth, hydrated base. This can be used on its own or as a base for makeup.
I Heart Makeup I Heart Chocolate Palette | £7.99
This was once one of my most worn palettes. It has 16 shades all inspired by chocolate and all things sweet. This is dubbed a dupe for one of the Too Faced Chocolate palettes, and at £8 this is a great alternative. I Heart Makeup is another sister company of Makeup Revolution, who are well known for their brilliant quality, affordable eye shadows. And this palette is no execption. Most shades are buttery smooth and well pigmented. The two larger pale shades aren't as pigmented as the others but I can live with that! Overall, this is a great all round palette and definitely deserves more use.
The Balm Mary Lou-manzier | £17.49
One of the best highlighters I have ever used. I'm sure most of you have heard of this, this highlighter is so soft and smooth, it applies beautifully and gives an almost wet look to the skin. But recently I neglected it for other highlighters but as its officially spring its time to get my ultimate glow on.
Makeup Revolution Blush in the Shade Treat | £1
This is a beatiful peachy toned blush which was a staple last summer. So with the warmer months on their way (hopefully) I plan on using this again. For a £1 blush this brilliant! Well pigmented, applies smoothly and lasts all day on me!
Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in the 08 | £5.49
The formula of the lipsticks are some of the best in the drugstore. They're matte, creamy, comfortable and long lasting. And the shade 08 is beautiful. Its a nude colour with mauvey, purple undertones. This will be added to my current lipstick rotation.
Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick | £3.50
This has been repackaged but the shade Nudist is still available. Its the perfect pinky peach nude, in a glossy formula that isn't sticky at all! And leaves the lips looking glossy and plump. This would be perfect for spring summer and I will certainly be using it!
So theres some of my rediscoveries! Have you tried any these? Have you discovered any old favourites recently?
