Imagine you wake up one morning and all your makeup and skincare has disappeared… after the initial shock and very justified fit of rage, which 16 products would you buy immediately?
Sounds pretty terrifying, right?
Hello everyone! 🙂
What you’ve just read was the back story for the Starting Over Tag. I was nominated by the amazing Anne from Doves And Roses (check her blog out here) to do this tag. You can check her answers by clicking here. 🙂 I will just say that it was really hard to pick this few products and that I’ve tried to balance my picks out. (even tho I probably failed) So, without further ado, let’s get started with this tag.
1) The Body Shop Tee Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
Okay, this is seriously my favorite face washes ever. It leaves your skin feeling soft and clean, I’ve also noticed that it does in fact reduce breakouts and it helps with acne problems, too. It’s amazing and, once again, I’d find a way to get it. (which also applies for the following product)
2) LUSH ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ Face & Body Cleanser
No. 1 and this one go together – I love this cleanser so much. It has become a part of my skincare routine and I’d like to keep it that way.
3) Tee Tree Oil Moisturizer
I really like this moisturizer: one of the ingredients is tee tree oil. (which I’ve kinda really been loving) The one that I’m currently using is by a random Italian brand I found in a store. (that I’d repurchase)
4) Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lipbalm
I’m slightly addicted to lip balms. I need to have one at all time and can’t stand dry lips. I’ve started using this lip balm recently and absolutely fell in love. It leaves your lips: a) very hydrated & soft and b) smelling amazing. (peppermint)
5) Alverde Makeup Remover
You gotta have a makeup remover in your life, right? This is just a nice one that I usually use. It does a great job, it smells great AND it’s natural. (Alverde is a German natural-cosmetics company, available in DMs)
6) Too Faced Matte Eye Palette
My most recent review was about this palette and how it doesn’t get enough recognition (you can check it out here) and so that would, also, be one of the things that I’d buy without thinking about it. I just think that, currently, I do love it very much and I think I’d miss it too much. (this is not the only palette I’d get, though…)
7) L’Oreal Color Riche Eyeshadow Quad (shade: E2 – Absolute Taupe)
Yup, another one. Although, this is more of a ‘necessity quad’ for me. I’ve used this way too much and way too often. (sorry for the used up shades/dirty package)
8) Alverde Blending Brush
(Alverde again!) Okay, so this is the blending brush that I usually use and this would be the brush that I repurchase. It’s a good brush and, since the L’Oreal palette comes with that disgusting brush (to apply eye shadows), I’d need a blending brush, right? So, this would be the one I get.
( I was planing to get the EcoTools eye kit… not sure if I should, though… if you have any experience with EcoTools, leave a comment, share your thoughts 🙂 )
9) Aura Angled Brush
Another brush that I’d have to get would be an angled brush. I’m using one by Aura and have been really satisfied with it’s results. 🙂
10) Too Faced Perfect Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner
This has been my favorite pencil eyeliner ever since I got it and I think it would probably be one of the things that I’d repurchase without even thinking.
11) Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Eyeliner
I’ve talked about this particular eyeliner a lot in the past (check that blog post out here), so it’s natural I’d go and get another one. And in case you’re wondering – yes, I do need both a liquid and a pencil eyeliner. (don’t question the logic)
12) Maybelline One By One Mascara/Benefit Roller Lash
So, I had a bit of a dilemma with this one: if I had to pick an old ‘favorite’, than I’d go with the Maybelline One By One Mascara because it just really adds a lot of volume and separates lashes. If I could pick a product that I’d love to try (which would probably be the one I’d really go and buy) it would be the Benefit Roller Lash. (I’d find a way to get it)
13) NYX Matte Lipstick (shade – Pure Red)
This is my favorite (re-affordable) red lipstick that I own. The shade is so perfect and I honestly think that I couldn’t sleep at night knowing I don’t have a red lipstick in the house.
14) NYX Butter Gloss (shade – Apple Strudel)
This is my daily to-go lip product. It’s a pretty neutral pink and every time I don’t have time for red lips, I slap a bit of this on and I’m good to go.
15) Chanel Irreelle Blush (shade – 80 Tea Rose)
This is a flawless blusher. It’s just the most beautiful pinky blush out there. I’ve found this beauty around the house a while back and now it looks terrible, all used up. (this photo I was embarrassed to post… but at least you know I liked the product)
16) Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream/Rimmel Match Perfection
Again, not sure if I should pick stuff that I already had or what I’d like to try, so I’d go for the Garnier Miracle Skin BB Cream (click here to read my review of it) or the Rimmel Match Perfection. (which I’m dying to try out)
And that’s my 16 picks for this tag. 🙂 Again, thank you so much for nominating me, Anne. And now it’s time for the nominations. I nominate
