If I Could Only Keep 10 Items of MakeUp.

I like to look at this post as it being a tag, so far I've seen 3 other posts doing this Rachel Shuchat Makeup, Beautylymin & The Indigo Hours. The latter of where I decided I'm going to do this. Makes me wonder 10 items? A full face for me sometimes takes a lot more than 10 but multi-purpose products are key. Being on a desert island how would I like my face to look until the end of each product is finished, hmmm well, this list really wasn’t easy.

NIOD photography fluid, Opacity 12% -
That filter blur in a bottle. This can be used alone, with moisturiser, under moisturiser, under foundation, with foundation - you getting it? It's got a beautiful radiance that makes you lit from within, it minimizes lines, helps conceal dark circles and pigmentation, although I don't have any of those severely it's nice to see how something used sparingly can help these issues while wearing make-up. It's got a yellow-red hue corrector by knocking out the red tones in the skin and also minimises yellow tones.

EX1 Invisiwear Foundation -
An oil-free, non-comedogenic liquid foundation has been made with asian and olive tanned women in mind, the range isn't huge but F300 fits me perfectly and I like that it's not heavy and I can apply a little and it's satisfactory enough for me to apply and spread out. It's light and when I set it, there's not much transfer. I use it in most of my make-up look and day to day make-up because it's a good fit with how it adapts to my skin. Note - they're not officially certified.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipstick -
I couldn't think of a shade. Maybe when push comes to shove, I will be able to chose a shade. I like how long these last, how affordable they are and as you know for the past month they've been doing international shipping - whoop. I'm in love with Dr.M which is a green shade but also Chi, Trap and Beeper but there's so many more shades that I would like to try - maybe a red would be my go to shade - you know I love me a prostitute red as I use to call it.

theBalm Mary Lou Manizer Luminizer Highlighter -
Rich in pigmentation and looks beautiful on my skin, I think I could live with strobing over bronzer because if my desert island has sun, I don't have to worry about that part. This is a light-medium, golden champagne, warm undertoned with a pearly sheen highlighter, I like to use this on my nose tip and on top of my cheek bones.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade -
All kinds of proof, it was a hard decision because I've switched from pomade to pencil for a more natural look but having the other brow product for a more natural look. I do like how even with this I don't have to use a lot of product and it can be used gently for a natural look that lasts all day.

GOSH Defining Brow Gel - Black -
This has become my HG brow gel, it works better for me than a clear one. It makes my brows thicker and puts them in place, it can be a little wet when first applied and sometimes the tips of my brows end up getting on my forehead but that's a quick clean up and it dries quickly - the bummer, I can't seem to find it to repurchase besides on eBay.

Makeup Geek Eyeshadows Z Palette -
Maybe a slight cheat? But because all my MUG shadows are within the Z palette making it a customised palette - duh! Therefore I can put a range of different shades to do different looks daily. Saves on other palettes where all the colours might not be utilised & end up being wasted, you must of heard about how amazing these shadows are for the price and I 100% agree, they're amazing.

Illamasqua Precision Ink Gel Liner -
This really has become my go to gel liner, I love how black it is, how the gel is smooth and glides effortlessly and it stays for HOURS! What more can a person want when it comes to an eyeliner. It's not smudge proof but that doesn't bother me.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara
I always go back to this mascara. I tried the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara as a replacement but I found it flaked, smudged when dried leaving raccoon eyes as the day continues and was pretty wet when applying but They're Real from Benefit seems to work exceptionally well for me. It separates, gives good length and my lashes look good without false lashes, win-win!

RCMA NO-Color Powder -
I'm pretty much done with the banana powder hype and this has become my converted setting powder and I couldn't see myself going backwards. There's no flashback best believe no-color means none. It's finely milled which is best as it'll never cake.

What would be your items?


  1. Great beauty products!
    Im sure I would leave my mascara, the eye liner, the nude lipsick,the coconut oil,the hydrating cream..and that s enough.

    Hope you ll join my giveaway,only 3 days left:

  2. I would find it so hard to choose just 10 items of make up but I'm sure I could dwindle it down. Like you said multi-purpose products are key! I would make sure I took a good palette though, and I would definitely take Urban Decays Perversion Mascara as I can't live without it xx

  3. We would have lots to talk about, if we were stranded together. It would probably be fun.

  4. That NIOD photography fluid sounds like a great pick. I would definitely have to include something that consistently covers up lines and dark spots.

  5. I really need to get some makeup geek eyeshadows as I've heard such great things about them x

  6. I have so many items of makeup, I don't believe i would be able to narrow it down to only 10 if they were the only items i could keep x

  7. Wow I really want to try the dipbrow pomade and I am obsessed with looking at pictures of Colourpop. I want to have my own.

  8. I haven't tried that highlighter yet but I've seen so many swatches and it looks gorgeous so im not surprised to see it here! xxx

  9. I'm seriously tempted by the filter blur. Sounds like a miracle tool :)

  10. I love that a lot of the products are vegan friendly xx

  11. I would have to keep my cc cream, eyeliner, mascara,translucent powder and concealer..the rest i would use for a range of lipsticks haha

  12. The colour pop lipstick sounds awesome - I love a good matte finish! H x

  13. I don't think I could ever pick just ten - too difficult X

  14. Now you've got me thinking, I don't want to pick just 10 haha although you definitely cheated! A pallet... come on haha try narrowing it down to one colour, bet you can't!

    1. LMAO no way I couldn't. One single colour on an island - that's HARD!

  15. I wouldn't find it hard to choose, as I could happily give up all make-up. But I guess I would keep mascara if I could only keep one.

  16. It's great that these are all vegan, the lipstick sounds great.

  17. I have that Benefit mascara and really love it!
