The forever repurchases

Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite products and the ones that I have and will go on to repurchase over and over again. I would love to know in the comments what are your forever repurchase products. 

Starting off with the base products Porefessional has been a go to primer for me for such a long time. The pores on my cheeks are huge so this is a go to for me whenever I go for a heavier base. I know a lot of people don't love silicone based primers but if you do and you haven't already tried this you need too. concealer wise I had to mention both the Clarins instant concealer which is the most light weight super high coverage concealer. It looks beautiful on the skin and is brilliant for dry skin. The Naked concealer is a cult classic. It isn't quite as high coverage as the Clarins concealer however it does still offer a good strong medium coverage. Again it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and looks amazing on my dry skin. 

I love a good setting spray and the Urban decay All nighter setting spray is by far my favourite. It reduces any powderiness on the skin and takes any cakiness away. For a dry skinned gal like myself this is something I cannot be without. It also makes my makeup last so much longer on the skin. Hoola bronzer is the only bronzer I have ever hit pan on. It's a gorgeous slightly warm toned bronzer which I can use for both contouring and bronzing up the face without looking orange in any way. 

Moving onto the eyes I had to mention the Anastasia modern renaissance palette. This is by far the palette in my collection that I use the most. These shadows blend like an absolute dream and are so crazily pigmented. I also wanted the mention the Smashbox Brow tech matte pencil. This is a super thin pencil which means I can get a very accurate brow. It is one I reach for on a more natural day. It also has the best spooley ever which seems like a random comment but it really is amazing. Dip brow was something I couldn't have written this post without. I have been using this product at least 3 out of 4 times I've worm makeup for about the last two years. I have the shade medium brown which is the best for me, it's a dark brown shade with ashy undertones. This is the product out of all of the products in this post which I would recommend the most.

Hoola, Syrup, three shades from MR 
Finally for the lips I had to mention the Nuxe Reve de meil lip balm which I am actually on my fifth pot off. It is the most hydrating balm I have ever tried and as someone with potentially the driest lips in the world this is something I adore. Lipstick wise I had to mention Mac syrup as for me it is the perfect everyday lip colour. I love a good my lips but better shade and this one is perfect. Finally I had to mention the NYX butter glosses which are my favourite glosses from the drugstore. They are highly pigmented and super glossy yet not sticky. I think the only glosses I like more are the Clarins lip perfectors however they are a lot more expensive than these and the shades are also fairly limited. 

So that's it for today, I would love to know what products are your forever repurchases. 


  1. Aaaaa Cole I love how nosey I feel right now getting to know all the products you wear on a daily and your favourites :’D . How did you first find it using the Dip Brow as I’m pretty much a brow beginner that can only just manage with powder? I really would love to try a pomade but I’m just so scared they will be difficult to use. Also, the throwback vibes you’re giving me with the Nuxe Reve de meil :O . I fully remember being obsessed with getting this lip balm when I first got into blogging in 2014 and almost bought it in France! As of current, the Crazy Rumors lip balms are my all time favourites. Honestly some of the most nourishing I’ve ever used, cruelty free and vegan and the most insaneeee scents :O. If you like scented lip balms Cole you seriously need to look them up now! They are amamzeballs :D !

    Much love Cole! :D
