My Long Lasting Makeup Products - Part 2



Back from your cup of tea? Let's continue with my long last makeup product list, shall we?






3 - Eye : Maybelline Colour Tattoo 24 Hour cream eyeshadow (On and On Bronze / Pink Gold)

With my hooded eyes, very oily eyelids and not very good skills in putting more than one colour on my lids, I look for easy cream eyeshadows to give my eyes a bit of colour. Another gem of drugstore, Maybelline Colour tattoo. No need for eye primer, just use my finger to smooth some on and it stays on my oily eyelids beautifully. It will last all day without any creasing.




4 - Mascara : Estee Lauder Double Wear Zero-Smudge Lengthening / Maybelline Rocket (waterproof)

My eye lashes are straight and almost every mascara smudge on me by midday, even the many waterproof formulae. So I was over the moon when I got my sister's friend's reccommendation on Estee Lauder Double Wear. It is the first mascara that does not smudge on me. However, it does not give much length or volume that I am hoping for. So I was even more over the moon when I tried the Maybelline Rocket, that it does not smudge, and it gives superb length to my lashes! And it's a drugstore product, which means friendly to the bank account, win-win!




5 - Blush : Sleek blush palette (Pumpkin)

Yes, another drugstore product! Sleek blush palette (or single blusher) is so pigmented, just the lightest dap with your brush and that's all your need. It stays on so well on my cheeks. Very affordable price as well, £9.99 for a palette of 3 blushes.




6 - Lip : Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (001 Honey) / Boots No 7 Stay Prefect Lip Lacquer (Coral Dream) / Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Colour (No 15)

I have 3 products in the lip department, two of them are quite similar.

Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain is the one that really stained my lips. When the top balm layer wears off, the stain stays on to give my lips a base colour. I can top up on lip glosses throughout the day if I want to.

Boots No 7 and Make Up For Ever are very similar to each other, options are here depends on which part of the world that you are in. They are not stain, the colour is like a delicate layer of paint that stick to the lips, and the layer won't budge! Some may find it a bit drying, but you can always top up with the clear gloss on the other side of the tube or any other lipgloss of your choice.




7 - Fixer Mist : Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix

The final touch is a little spray of mist to fix all the make up in place. All the products that I mentioned above have their own right in long lasting quality, but if everything fails, or you have your preferred products but still want your makeup to last all day, then this spray is your best friend. The travel size is perfect to keep in handbag to spray throughout the day if needed.

This spray also works particularly well in summer or in hot climate.


So here we are, my list of long lasting products to complete your look!

I hope you find this helpful.
