High Street Editioneyeshadow brush, slanted brush, foundation brush, blusher brush. priced between £8-£12
Most of my make-up brushes are high street. I'll only buy high-end brushes for foundation, but I think high-street eye and cheek brushes work just as well as the pricey versions.
I have brushes from elf, Cosmo and no7, but my favourites are from The Body Shop. The picture above is just a small collection on the brushes I own as some are duplicates and I didn't really want to do a 'collection' post. I like The Body Shop as a whole because of it's cruelty free message (and because everything smells so yummy!) Their brushes are obviously vegan and they're definitely the best vegan brushes I've tried. They apply the product really well, and more importantly, they clean really easily.
The blusher brush is my favourite (I have three of these!) because it's the perfect size for my cheek bone and it applies product like a dream. I can use this to contour as well because its pinched. I love the slanted brush for eyeliner, but I also use one to fill in my eyebrows.
The only downside to my collection is the foundation brush. I prefer applying my liquid foundation with a stippling brush or a buffing brush but otherwise I highly recommend these brushes.
I really love these types of posts/videos because it shows what people actually use, rather than buy.
So let's get started....
I got these as part of a gift set for my birthday from my dad. I really liked these. Because of the fruity citrus scents, these fitted into my bathroom really well. I probably will repurchase these because the scents complemented other things that I have already.
This is my third or fourth tube of L'Oreal Volume Million. It's been my favourite mascara for just over a year but recently its been really smudgy on me. I don't know if it's because of the humidity, or if its just because I bought the extra back this time and its more smudgy...
S&G's mascara is fast becoming my favourite. This is only the first tube of it but I really love it. I like to try lots of different mascaras but I probably will buy this again.
These mascaras are both around the £10-15 mark which is a lot of high-street brands. I think I can get something similar to the L'Oreal one for much cheaper.
Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream, Nivea Visage Daily Essentials Light Moisturising Day Cream
I won't talk too much about these as they were mentioned in a recent post. These are both in my morning skincare routine and I've already bought their replacements. They're both relatively cheap and they work really well for me. Something will have to blow me away to take their place.
Maybelline 'The Smoother' Skin Retexturising Primer
I'm one of those people that tends to neglect putting primer on. My moisturiser does a really good job and I don't feel as though I necessarily need it everyday. I really like this product though. I don't know if I'll repurchase it because I want to try some new things to see what's out there.
So those were my empties! Hope you liked it!
