Anybody addicted to beauty will tell you that no haul is a boring haul. But when a haul is made up of all repurchases, for me its a little same-y. I wasn’t going to share the products I purchased on FeelUnique, but then I thought that although they might be familiar to you, you guys might not have tried out some of my favourites…
My first repurchase was a bottle of my favourite fake tan Xen Tan Absolute Luxe. I love this tan for being super easy to apply. It blends well into the skin, has a nice natural guide colour and doesn’t leave you or the bedsheets stinking of biscuits. I find that this is the only tan that lasts on my skin for over a week and extra brownie points; it fades well. After a week of wear there is no patchiness or flaking. With a little bit of upkeep (i.e.: moisturising each day and gentle exfoliation in the shower) I can make this tan last just over a week, which really is pretty good going for a fake bake from a bottle.
My next repurchase is possibly the most boring of the bunch; the Rimmel Undercover Shadow Primer. This might not be the most thrilling makeup purchase, but it is a necessity in my collection and my last bottle had dried up. I find this primer to be great for everyday as it is thin and easy to apply. I simply swipe on under my shadows, smudge in with my finger. For maximum ‘stick’ I will have my eyeshadow at the ready and pop on my base colour before the primer dries. I have found doing this means it increases the intensity of my shadow colours and makes them stick around all day.
Another makeup item I repurchased was the Benefit Hoola Bronzer. This is a firm makeup favourite with lots of makeup junkies, myself included! It is the perfect shade to dip into to give the complexion a bit of a bronzey glow. I dust this almost every day around the parameters of the face as a final step as it really suits my skintone and gives me a little definition.
The other Benefit product that is a repurchase for me is the Gimme Brow. I had this product back in the day, when the brand first released it, but had always been let down by the shade range. With Benefit’s re-vamp of their brow products, they have introduced a new shade, 2, which is somewhere in the middle of the previous shades and is a mid-toned brown which is a better match for my hair. I must say, although this product isn’t an exact match, it is just so easy I love having it in my stash. I brush into my brows with the tiny wand and watch as the fibres give them the fullness I want in seconds. If I am super lazy I will even use the tip of the brush to dot on product in my spare areas – making it a one stop product for full brows.
My final repurchase was a bottle of Seche Vite Top Coat. This product has to be the best for topping off a manicure and ensure it lasts and lasts. I have banged on and on about this product before on Made From Beauty (you can read my rave review HERE) and there has been no change in how much I love this product. To say it’s in my holy grail of All Time Best Beauty Products would be an understatement. I will never be without a bottle of this in my collection, which is why it makes it’s way into my basket time and time again.
