Thought of the day

I have been thinking a lot lately that I sometimes find myself buying/wanting things simply because  of all the ‘hype’.

I seem to forget that liking a product really is a personal thing and because one person likes it doesn’t mean I will. And really by buying it and giving into the hype I’m really just making it worse!!!!!!

I find I have this problem with Mascara’s in particular.  I always end up back to the same old ones, the one with a regular to thick brush. I find it coats, lengthens and thickens my lashes the best.

So this brings me to the age old question; If it isn’t broken, why fix it ?!?

I am constantly on the hunt for the newer, prettier, better product and its something I rarely find. I don’t mean to say I haven’t found anything new I liked but more times than not I think I should just stick to the tried and true.

So here is my list of products I always got back to

  • Mascara

Benefit Get Bent or Maybelline XXL/ Great Lash

  • Foundation

Masquerade, Smashbox or Revlon

  • Primers

Smashbox Face Primers and Too Faced   Shadow Insurance

  • Moisturisers

Nivea for Very Dry Skin, Elizabeth Arden 8    hour Cream and Mac Fix +

  • Highlighters, Bronzers and Cheek Colour


  • Eye Shadows

Mac –I always like their shadows (that is excluding the Lustres)

  • Others;

Mehron Palettes as bases,  Manicare Lashes….

What are yours….?
