forever repurchased foursome

Beauty blogging is so fickle. I try new things all the time and I'm constantly going from favourite to favourite. However every now and again I come across items that I just cannot live without - the forever repurchased foursome. 

The Laura Mercier Mineral Powder has been my go-to for over a year and a half. A low coverage light mineral powder which can be worn alone for a light matte finish or as an all over finishing powder for foundation. Either way this makes my holy grail hall of fame for its non drying, non cakey formula with a luminous finish. This stuff is the bomb. I sung the praises of my fourth tube of this peachy pink legend, Topshop Whimsical a few days ago but still has a place in my heart. A great all rounder which brightens up the skin and adds a bit of colour. As soon as I was informed about this Clarins Instant Eye makeup removing dupe I knew me and the L'Oreal Absolute Makeup Remover Eye and Lip were in for a long love affair. This bi-phase beauty removes even the most stubborn waterproof mascara without feeling greasy or gross. Then finally I have my favourite drugstore mascara the Bourjois Twist Up the Volume Mascara, initially something I thought would be rubbish but it blew me away. It gives serious length and volume and lasts all day. Definitely THE drugstore mascara.

  7. Completely agree with the L'oreal eye make up remover, so gentle yet so darn good at removing every last bit of makeup!

  28. Have you ever used Laura Mercier's Smooth Finish Foundation? I'm really curious about how that product is different than this mineral one. If you've tried both I'd love to hear your thoughts!
