What's in my makeup bag 2

I did a ‘What’s in my makeup bag’ post back in January and looking at my stats, it was a popular post. Everyone loves to have a good old nosey at what products people use on a day to day basis, so that’s why I think these types of posts are always so popular! I’ve had a little change around since last time, most of the products are still the same, some are new. Since the last post I got a new makeup bag! I actually buy them all the time, mainly from H&M because they’re always so cheap! But I rarely find one that’s the perfect size. This one is from Tophop and I bought it when I was in London for £8. It’s a really unusual shape, when I bought it was flat and I had to adjust it so it went into a sack type shape. The thing that attracted it to me was the gorgeous lilac colour and the soft feel of it!

Simple Oil Balancing moisturiser – This moisturiser makes my skin feel really nice and it’s cheap too! I don’t particularly think it balances the oil on my face, but it does include zinc and corn starch which helps mattifies a bit.
Vichy Normaderm Hyrating Care – This is made for my skin type, basically if you have any type of imperfection going get this. I’m not sure what it’s supposed to do really, it only had a little bit of information in English on it, but I figured using it won’t harm.
Witch Anti-Blemish Skin Clearing primer – This doesn’t stop me from getting blemishes, but does make my makeup stay on a little longer and makes my skin feel super soft and ready for makeup.
L’Oreal Infallible foundation – I don’t use the brush on this, it’s pretty crap to be honest! But the foundation is nice, a decent colour match and does last quite a while
Maybelline Super Stay 24hr foundation – This does actually last quite a while, not 24 hours like it states but does last sometimes up to 12 hours with  touch-ups on my t zone throughout the day.
Rimmel Match Perfection concealer – I love this concealer, the best I’ve tried at concealing blemishes and dark circles.
17 Peep Show mascara – THEE best mascara I’ve ever tried! Really does give a false lash effect and it’s under £7 too!
Bourjois Khol & Contour eyeliner – The best eyeliner I’ve tried in terms of it not dragging across my eyelid and it’s nice and pigmented.
Collection 2000 Shine Away compact powder – I use this on my t zone and it does work at helping mattify my face. Really want to try the Rimmel Stay Matte one because I’ve heard it’s the best!
Natural Collection pressed powder – I use this sometimes if I know my makeup isn’t going to be on for long so I don’t need to use the Collection 2000 powder. Nice and cheap at £1.99 and it does give a matte finish for a few hours before I need to touch-up.
Rimmel blusher – This is in ‘Santa Rose’ and I recently found it when sorting my makeup out. It’s not normally a colour I’d go for but it really does give a nice natural colour that doesn’t look too OTT.
L’Oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick – These are much better than the Revlon Lip Butters, much sheerer and glides on so smoothly. I have 6 of these and I they leave a hint of colour to my lips.
