Long-standing beauty favourites

Long-standing beauty favourites

Beauty products are something I absolutely adore and love playing around with if you haven’t guessed, but I didn’t always have as big a collection as I do now, and there are some products that I’ve actually loved for a while. With that in mind, I thought I would share my long-standing beauty favourites with you today. Oh, and this post is totally inspired by The Anna Edit.

Long-standing beauty favourites

Urban Decay Naked palette
Since receiving the original Urban Decay Naked palette back in 2013 it has been a full on love-affair. I don’t use it nearly enough lately but it is the palette which made me fall in love with Urban Decay and is also the first ever high-end palette I owned. The formula is incredible, super pigmented and smooth, and there are so many gorgeous shades. I think this palette will forever have a place in my heart.

L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic mascara
I’m not actually sure when I first started using this, but I do know that I picked it up when it was first released which I think was around 2012. This is still a firm favourite of mine as I just love the false lash effect this mascara creates. It leaves my lashes defined and volumised which is exactly what I look for in a mascara. I love the super fine brush too as it combs through my lashes so easily too.

Benefit Brow Zings
A product you’ve heard me talk about numerous times, but this is another product that has been a bit of a love-affair since first picking it up in around 2012. Benefit Brow Zings is an incredible product, I love the formula of the powder and how easy it is to work with. I barely need to pick up any product to fill in and shape my entire eyebrows and it always lasts all day too. I do try other brow products but this is the product I always go back too.

Urban Decay All Nighter foundation
I first picked up this foundation last year so it’s a little bit newer than the rest of the products I’ve featured in this post, but it is most certainly worth a mention. Since purchasing this it is the only foundation I reach for when I want my makeup to look flawless as it really does make my skin look flawless. It’s a full coverage foundation that lasts all day too, or all night, and is definitely one to try if you haven’t already.

MUA blusher in Cupcake
I think it was in 2014 when I first picked up this blusher, and I’m now on my second one which I can’t get over as I rarely use up an entire blusher. This blusher only costs a £1 and is super impressive for the price. It’s a smooth formula that picks up well onto a brush, and it even lasts about 5 hours too. Cupcake is a gorgeous neutral shade with a slight pink hint to it.

The Body Shop lipsticks
After university I worked at The Body Shop, which is not only when I first tried their lipsticks, but also the start of my obsession with beauty. This was in 2013 and I can firmly say their lipsticks are still one of my absolute favourites. The packaging changed when I worked there and far more lipsticks became available, but I could never have enough. I love all the formulas, but the original Colour Crush lipsticks have to be my favourite. They are super hydrating, pigmented and look lovely on the lips without being too shiny. I can see The Body Shop lipsticks being a long-standing beauty favourite of mine forever.
