Everyday Face (Six Products)

I think it's down to laziness more than anything but I haven't been wearing much makeup recently. I'm at a stage where I can't really justify (boring!) buying more makeup without finishing some of the products I already have. Does anybody else use a product for a couple of months and then move on to something else and forget about the half used stash? I know I can't be alone. Here are the products I'm currently using when I leave myself 10 minutes to do my makeup (basically everyday).

I've shunned my beloved matte foundations recently in favour of this face combo. I love how the Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation and Clarins Powder look together. They are the perfect shade for my skin, which is something I've been able to say less than a handful of times in my life. You can't tell there is anything on the skin but the foundation definitely delivers on the 'visibly perfected skin' claim. I personally find that this foundation works best blending with my fingers and I use a sponge to press the powder on....A whole new routine!

I buy a lot of different concealers but I will always go back to the Collection Lasting Perfection one. There's a reason everybody loves it so much. It's thick enough to provide amazing coverage without being cakey. I do have to be careful about not using too much though because even shade 1 can end up looking orange on me.

I'm not a massive lover of the They're Real mascara from Benefit. If I'm honest, it hurts my eyes. Like I said, I am trying to clear out some of my stash and this is the one I'm currently on. I do really like that it last all day and doesn't transfer (even on my crazy oily lids). I won't be repurchasing this when it's gone though.

Maybelline Brow Satin is another product I'm not crazy about. It's ok and would probably work a lot better if you had more to your brows than I do. It's got a weird sponge applicator which is convenient but I find it really difficult to create a precise shape. I haven't bothered trying the pencil end on my brows because I can tell from trying to swatch it on my hand that it is way too hard to be scratching on my face.

I've had Kat Von D - Lolita for two months and it has essentially become my 'holy grail' lip product. I think I could quite happily wear this everyday for the rest of my life. Seriously though, how pretty is it??
