Products I've Used Up #1


I can't believe I've been running my blog for almost two years now and I've never gotten up classic beauty blog 'Product's I've Used Up' post. I'm not entirely sure why, but I think its because as soon as something has been used up its popped in the bin right away. However I love reading these types of posts as it really shows readers just how much you love a certain product. So I have made it my mission to keep hold of my most recent empties to show you just what products I've used up and to let you know if I plan on re-purchasing any of the items shown.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish - Soft & Gentle
One of my most favourite ever highlighters has to be MAC's MSF Soft and Gentle, it is by far one of the prettiest highlighters that I own and I'm a little sad that this particular one is on its last legs. I know you can see some product left, but I have seriously hit pan on this one and will need to make a repurchase soon. This highlighter has gorgeous peach and golden tones to it and leaves a lovely shimmer on your cheeks. I love using this as a highlighter for the eye area too, so its multipurpose. I bought this at the beginning of last year and have used it almost every day since purchasing it so a little really does go along way. If you would like to read my full review of this highlighter you can find it here.

MAC Lovelorn
Another MAC favourite of mine is Lovelorn, if your after a light pretty pink lipstick I can't recommend this one enough. This has to be my most worn lipstick, I just can't get enough of it! Lovelorn is one of MAC's Lustre formulas which means the finish of this lipstick is slightly on the sheer side, but can be built up very easily. I also find that the lustre finish gives a wet-look finish, which makes your lips look soft and smooth - It's also super hydrating which I love. Lovelorn is just a beautiful lipstick and I love it -  you can bet as soon as I next down to a Mac store, I'm going to be making a repurchase. I can't believe I've never dedicated a blog post to my most loved lipstick, but if you would like to see a swatch you can find one here.

Clinique Stay Matte Foundation
If your someone who suffers from oily to combination skin and are after a foundation that will last all day, keep the rest of your makeup stay put then I really recommend you try out the Clinique Stay Matte Foundation. I bought this sometime ago and I only really use this when I'm wanting something that provides full coverage and is long lasting. This foundation is more of a high-end one and for me is a bit of a treat but I absolutely love it and it does a fantastic job absorbing any shine from your skin throughout the day, so your skin is always looking fresh and flawless. I will definitely be splashing out on this foundation again.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum 
This has been my go too foundation this summer, as far as foundations go, this one has a really light finish and is the complete opposite to the Clinque foundation I mentioned above. In fact if your skin is more on the oily side I would probably stay well clear of this foundation. The healthy mix serum from Bourjois gives your skin a lovely dewy look, giving your skin a really healthy look. It gives just the right amount of coverage you need for summer and I have loved wearing this - However I did find that I needed plenty of powder top-ups throughout the day to stop my skin looking too shiny, but this is just because of my skin type. As we are going into Autumn I wont be making a repurchase of this foundation just yet as I like something with a bit more full coverage when the months get colder, but overall this is a great product.

Revlon Photoready Concealer
This concealer from Revlon has to be one of my favourites and it does a fantastic job at brightening up your eye area whilst giving you just the right amount of coverage to hide any dark circles. The formula of this concealer is ever so creamy and glides on to your skin without any fuss whatsoever. It can take a little longer to blend than other concealers, but the end result is bright beautiful eyes. I will definitely be making a repurchase of this concealer and I cant recommend it enough.

L'Oreal Skin Perfection 3 in 1 Purifying Micellar Solution
If you've been reading my blog for a while you will know how much I love this water based cleanser from L'Oreal (you can read my full review here) and this has to be the third bottle that I've used up now. It does a fantastic job at removing all traces of your makeup and acts as a toner at the same time. If you've not tried this and are still using makeup wipes I urge you to pick up a bottle, it's brilliant and so affordable. 


So that's it for all the products I've used up, if you like seeing this kind of post be sure to let me know and I'll make an extra effort of keeping hold of my empty packaging instead of chucking it right into the bin.

Lots of Love

  1. Ooh what fab bits, I've been wanting mac s&g for a while now so think I may have to get it. I'm also a lover of healthy mix it's so dewy and smells lush. I really want to try the Loreal skin perfection, I received a small bottle of bioderma in my birch box this month and have been loving it although it's quite hard to get hold of so may give this a go... I use face wipes always tut tut!

  3. such good products! I wanted to love the stay matte foundation but I somehow found it too cakey on portions of my face which never happens to me because I have such oily skin but I think I'll give it another go this fall!

    1. Aw no that's a shame, I know what you mean by it being a little too cakey sometimes, I think you've sometimes got to be having a good skin day when you pop it on x

  9. I love these post, I love hearing how a person feels about a product once they are completely finished with it vs one or two weeks worth of use. If you are willing to repurchase, its because it must be a really good product! I'm going to look into the L'Oreal purifying solution, thanks :)
