#BOBBlogchallenge Week 3 - Makeup must haves.

This was such a difficult post to get together as I had no idea what to pick, so I set myself a limit of 5 products and here's what I ended up choosing. 

First of I picked Benefit's They're real Mascara. This is the perfect mascara for me, I have very dark very long eyelashes which is great but the fact that they are poker straight isn't so great. This adds just the right amount of volume without making my lashes look clumpy, but most importantly it leaves my lashes nicely curled.

Next I picked Seventeen's Stay time concealer in extra fair. I have really fallen in love with this and it's most definitely the best drugstore concealer I've tried. It's quite a light concealer but it still has a good amount of coverage. 

For my third product I choose my FashionistA blush palette. The colours are Rose thrill (Top left), Butterscotch (Top right), Juicy apricot (Bottom left) and New york (Bottom right) These blushes are so lovely, they blend like an absolute dream. Recently I've been reaching for Butterscotch but I have a feeling I will be wearing Rose thrill a hell of a lot through out spring and summer.

I think I'm getting a little predictable of course my Urban decay naked basics palette would be in here somewhere. It's fabulous, it's versatile, the shadows are such good quality and the colours are perfect. Need I say more! 

Finally I have a very old favourite, if you read my lipstick tag you will know that this is the first ever lipstick I bought for myself and I still love it. It's perfect for when I don't know what shade to wear. 

So that's my third #BOBblogchallenge. I'd love to know what your holy grail/makeup must haves are!



  1. Love this tag - such a great way to look into other bloggers' favourites!
    I'm holding a giveaway on my blog, would love for you to check it out :)

  2. Great post! I really love the different things you've come up with, especially a fav of mine which is the They're real mascara. Its like a holy grail one for me! :) x

  3. brilliant list, love your range from benefit to natural collection, definitely something for everyone here. the fashionista blush palette looks absolutely gorgeous, love all those colours especially new york

  4. Great post! I love Benefit They're Real too, it's one of my favourite mascaras! x

  6. Great post! I'd love to get my hands on the naked basics but I already have too many palettes. I normally don't have enough time to put on some eyeshadow and leave the house only with foundation, mascara and eyebrows.

  7. Ok I officially need to get that Benefit Mascara, I cannot stop hearing about. Mind you I have about 6 mascaras on the go at the moment, will need to resist the urge for a while...

  8. Great post, I officially need to get my hands on that Benefit mascara (once I manage to use up the six different ones I have on the go right now...)

  9. Really fab picks. I think I will have to pick up that concealer, I have been on the hunt for a good concealer for ages now. I also keep telling myself I don't need that naked basics palette, but I really do need it, don't I?

  10. I am a total Urban Decay Lover the the basics palette is the only one I don't have at the min so I think it might be time to complete the entire collection :) I also really like your mascara, i had a travel pot of this and didn't use it enough before it dried up so i think its time to try another one x

  11. They're Real is one of my favourite mascaras though the wand can get a bit spiky. The Naked Basics palette looks to be such a versatile, everyday palette :)

  12. Since you are naturally blessed with lashes, benefit they are real is definitely a good choice. I dont mind it, but I could use more help with my lashes.

  13. I love natural collection lipsticks too :) Cheap and really good!
