Product empties and would I repurchase, Part 2

Here is my second installment of my product empties. Its long. Sorry. Grab a snack! lol.

Image result for benefit roller lashFirst we have the Benefit Roller lash. I was so excited to try this mascara as I had seen it used by many beauty bloggers and vloggers. I got this as a set so I felt it was great value for money. This mascara is steep at €26 for the tub. Usually I don't bother with highend mascaras as I find the drugstore versions just as good, if not better. I loved this mascara. It did curl my lashes and it was great in that it didn't smudge under my eyes throughout the day. I would repurchase this mascara, only if it was on offer though. Its just too expensive and the Max Factor Masterpiece is just as good for half the price.

Image result for loreal true matchL'oreal True Match is a staple in my collection of foundations. I love this and the Lumi version. I always have one going at all times. Maybe even two, in different shades. This is a great all round foundation that suits almost every skin type. This makes your skin look like your skin but better and its buildable without being cakey. I will always repurchase this unless I find a drugstore affordable foundation that is any better. This retails from €14-€16. You can get this in most local chemists.

Image result for caudalie beauty elixirCaudalie Beauty Elixir. YES, YES, YES. This product gives me all the feels. Its refreshing. Tones the skin. Refreshes the skin and can be used as a makeup setting spray. This is an all round product. It smells like a spa. I got a trio pack and i'm on my third bottle. This is £11 for 30ml and £32 for 100ml. I bought mine on a flight with Aer Lingus. You can get it here on 

Image result for nip and fab glycolic padsNip and Fab Glycolic Cleansing Pads. These retail from €8-€14. I purchased mine on cloud10beauty on an offer and right now boots have them on offer for €8.99 which is a steal. I done a blogpost on these wee gems here. These enriched with glycolic acid and hyaluronic acid, which gives a brighter, more moisturised and youthful appearance to the skin. I would most certainly repurchase these.

Image result for garnier fresh essentials tonerGarnier Fresh Essentials Soothing Toner.  This is cheap and cheerful and I would 100% buy this again. It does exactly what it says on the tin. Right now, I am trying out a few different toners but the best thing about this is there is no alcohol on the ingredients and it retails anywhere from €3-€5. You can get this in most local chemists.

Image result for sleek primerSleek Control Shine and Prime. €11. This didn't do it for me. I didn't really like the consistency of this primer and I found that it didn't do anything for tzone where I applied it for my oils coming through. I used it up and gave it a good chance but I wouldn't purchase this again. It just didn't work for me.

Image result for rimmel match perfection powder Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder. €9.69. This is a fab loose powder. I do really like it. It isn't drying on the skin and doesn't cake like other powders. If you have dry skin then this is a great affordable option for you. I done a blogpost on it here. I would repurchase this product.

Image result for garnier soft essentials moisturiser Garnier Essentials Hydrating Moisturiser. €7. In my opinion, Garnier is one of the best affordable skincare brands out there. They cater for all skin types and you will find something that will work for you no matter the skin issues. The only stickler with this is there is no SPF in it but it is very hydrating on the skin. I probably wouldn't repurchase this, only on the no SPF issue.

Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15, ${color} MAC Studio Fix foundation. €32. I have repurchased so many bottles of this throughout the years I couldn't even give you an estimate as to how many. This was my 'going out' foundation for years. It is a matte, full coverage foundation that doesn't budge. I am now 30 and matte foundations just seep into to those new fine lines on my face that seem to have appeared over night! boo hoo! I did a post on how to sheer out a matte foundation like this and give you are more glowing appearance here. Unfortunately for me I wouldn't repurchase this only because i'm passed the matte stage. This is a gem for youthful skin though.

Image result for rimmel match perfection foundationRimmel Match Perfection Foundation. €10. I wrote a blogpost on this here. This is a great wee foundation. It has a satin finish. Not matte or not dewy. Somewhere in between. I would repurchase this again if I couldn't get my hands on the L'oreal True Match.  

I know, wow,  way to long of a blogpost. I couldn't even add all my empties in as there was just to much and some products were repeats of my previous empties post.

Thanks for reading, Alanna xx
