The Top 10 Tag


So I wasn't going to do a blogpost today because I am exhausted and couldn't be bothered but I had a wee nap and now I'm awake and refreshed and thought I'd do a tag.

The tag was created by Jessica from Pretty Chit Chat so check her out here!

I was tagged by Ali from Passions And Preening- a fellow N.Irishie so go check her out!

Let's get started!

1) Foundation

This has changed a few times in the past year but the brand has stayed the same- Rimmel. I think I've found my holy grail budget friendly foundation in this:


It's the Lasting Finish 25 hour Nude foundation and it's a beaut! A medium coverage, stays in place, looks good for ages and doesn't look too shiny or too matte.  I've done a full review here if you want to check it out.

2) Concealer

This is a difficult one because I don't use concealer on a daily basis but I do enjoy a couple of different ones for different things. Of course, like most beauty bloggers I love my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer but I think my 'favourite' might just be this:


It's the Makeup Revolution liquid concealer. It's got a good coverage, sets well, isn't too cake so can be used under the eyes and best of all it's only £1.50.

3) Powder

There was no contest for this one. I only use one powder every single day and it's the Rimmel Stay Matte- I don't have a pic on my computer for some reason and it's way too dark to take one but I'm sure you know what it looks like. It keeps my shine away without being cakey and it's a bargain at £3.99 here.

4) Blush

Despite having a crap tonne of the stuff, I have one blush that I use on an everyday basis and that's Sleek Rose Gold. It's just such a gorgeous, blowy but not too bright, blush. Love it. (top right)



5) Bronzer

Again, this was pretty easy. There is one bronzer I use on an everyday basis and that's the Makeup Revolution Medium Matte Bronzer. It's such a nice colour, not too dark or orange but not muddy looking either. Check it out here.

6) Highlighter

I don't use highlighter all that much on my face these days, I usually use a glowy blush instead. On my eyes I usually use a light, shimmery eyeshadow like bootycall from the Urban decay Naked 2 Palette.



7) Mascara

Up until a couple of weeks ago I'd have said it was Benefit they're real but since getting this I've changed my mind:


The Urban Decay Perversion Mascara with the Subversion primer. I tricking love this stuff. It's really black, gives length, volume and isn't too clumpy. I did a full review here

8) Eyeshadow

This is the second hardest category. I have 2/3 favourite palettes for different budgets, looks and occasions. Special Mention goes again to Makeup Revolution and their palettes- great quality for the price but my most used and loved palette is My Urban Decay Naked 2 palette.

Top is Makeup Revolution Iconic 2 and Bottom Urban Decay Naked 2
9) Brows

You are honestly going to think I'm obsessed but on an everyday basis my eyebrow routine consists of one thing:



It's very grubby but it's tease from my Naked 2 palette and I take it on this Red Beauty Brushes angled brush (you can get 40% off using the code lozzyloveslippy40 if you want)

10) Lipstick 

Well holy moly this is a hard one and changes on an almost daily basis. One thing that doesn't change is that I love a good matte lipstick, something with great pigment and something a bit in your face. I used to be a pink only gal but I am loving purples and deep reds too. I'll show you a few of my faves at the mite:

Kate Moss Rimmel 107
Mac Heroine

These are the three I go between at the minute but I love love love sleek lipsticks especially Mystic, I love Maybelline colour sensational vivids and I love Mac Impassioned and Girl About Town.
I also love lip crayons a lot!

So there you go, hope you've enjoyed seeing a few of the products I love.

I'm not tagging anyone in particular but all my blogger pals and readers feel free to do it! xx
