Hello everyone! So looking through my old posts, I haven’t written a makeup collection post since 2013 and it’s safe to say my makeup collection has grown and changed a fair amount since then! I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone of only using ‘drugstore’ makeup and my little collection is still growing! If I have written any reviews for the products in this post I will link them as I go along.
So starting off with storage I’ve only recently got more of these Muji drawers and I love them! They stack perfectly and even though they’re clear, it still looks neat and tidy in my bathroom. My makeup storage consists of three drawers, two of the wide 2 drawers
and small 4 drawers
which can be on its side like I have it or stood upright. In the top layer, I have some of my jewellery and it’s also where I keep my Blank Canvas Cosmetics Face Contour Palette.
In the next drawer, I keep all my foundations and primers, I think this is where my collection has grown the most! Going left to right, I have my Liz Earle Signature Foundation
(Ivory 02), Maybelline Fit Me
(120), Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum
(52 Vanilla), Max Factor Facefinity 3in1
(Light Ivory 40
), Rimmel Lasting Finish Primer
, Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer
, Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer
and along the bottom I have my two foundations I use every day which is my Max Factor Miracle Match Foundation
(Light Ivory 40) and MAC Studio Fix Fluid
(NC20). There are a few more foundations and primers I want to add to my collection, but I think for now I will just work my way through this little lot!
In the last big drawer, I have my lip products and powders. Starting with lip liners, I have two Rimmel liners (Indian Pink and Black Tulip)
and two MAC liners (Soar and Burgundy)
. I’m still not sure how I feel about lip liners, but I love wearing just ‘Soar’ on days I don’t want to have a full face of makeup. As for lipsticks, it’s another section that has grown within my collection.. I mostly have reds and a few pinks as they seem to suit my skin tone most and don’t make my teeth look a funny colour when I smile! So in the top right layer, I have two Rimmel Kate lipsticks (101 is a dusty pink and 107 is a deep red matte)
, a Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in ‘Juicy Papaya’ and two MUA (shade 1 is a fire truck red and shade 13 is another deep red). Then the bottom layer are the colours I tend to reach for the most.. I also have my Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Lip Protectant
in there as well as my MAC lipsticks (Brave, Dubonnet and Hang-Up)
, Seventeen ‘Rule Breaker’
, Rimmel Kate ’30’
(a deep red/purple that smells like sour cherry sweets.. It’s amazing, go smell it!) and finally, another Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in ‘Macaroon’. Lastly, I have my powders which are my bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder
, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
and Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder
In my last four drawers I have my mascaras (Seventeen Doll’d Up
), Soap & Glory Thick & Fast HD
, Max Factor Masterpiece Max
and Max Factor False Lash Effect
), Eyeliners (Max Factor Black Kohl Pencil
, Rimmel Scandaleyes Nude Kohl Pencil, Soap & Glory Black Smolder Kohl Pencil
and a Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Black Gel Eyeliner
), a Soap & Glory Archery Pencil
, my B. Beauty Sponge and eyelash curlers from The Vintage Cosmetics Company. Then last but not least, my concealers (Maybelline Eraser Eye
, Maybelline FitMe Concealer
and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
), Revlon Photoready Eye Primer
and a pencil sharpener.
Since writing this post I have been a little naughty and added a few more makeup bits to my collection, but I will keep them for a ‘new in’ post which will be coming shortly. I am in no way saying I have a big collection, nor am I boasting, but I am a little nosey to see what others use in their makeup routines so I thought I’d give you a little insight into mine!
