My Go To Beauty Brands

I'm a highstreet girl at heart and there are a selection of brands I make a beeline for when I pop to Boots. Over the years I've tried a whole heap of different products and these brands get my seal of approval. 

Lip Butters and the ColorBurst Balm are two of my favourite lipsticks. I get quite dry lips and these are both really hydrating. Revlon was a brand which was introduced to me by my Mum. She recommend the ColourStay foundation (a favourite of mine) and I decided to try out some of their lip product when they launched Lip Butters. Four lip butter and six ColourBurst balms later and I'm hooked.
Rimmel is a brand which reminds me of being in my teens. It was so easy to get hold of and all my friends used it. The first product I tried from them was the Stay Matte Pressed Powder which I used to wear alone as foundation, nice. Now I've think I've tried nearly every product from Rimmel and it's a brand I can trust. I love Rimmel bases including the Stay Matte foundation, Lasting Finish Nude and Wake Me Up. I highly recommend the Kate Moss collection of lipstick as they are great quality and have a wide range of colours.
Collection has to be one of my top 3 highstreet brands. My most repurchased makeup item is the Lasting Perfection Concealer. I'm also a huge fan of their new Lip Butter Pencils and their nail varnishes are so reasonably priced. A good brand to go for if you're on a budget.
Another brand which reminds me of my teens. When I think of Bourjois products they all are good quality and don't feel heavy on your face. I've tried all their foundations which I really like, similarly with their concealer. The brand is great for fellow pale people too! The bronzing powder is next on my wishlist.

What are your go to beauty brands?


  1. I absolutely adore Rimmel, I don't think I've found a product of theirs that I don't like. Revlon I'm still a bit iffy on -- I have one of their lip glosses and I really like it, but I'm not very keen on their shadows, they just seem to either have a poor colour payoff or they get all over the place. I haven't heard of Collection before, but we have Bourjois in Australia and I've been slightly hesitant to try it -- not sure why! I think I'll need to track down some reviews and get spending! (...Maybe after my pay comes in.)

    I'm not sure that I have many "go to" brands yet (besides perhaps Rimmel) although I'm constantly checking out Mecca Cosmetica and Kit Cosmetics for new products! Can't seem to take my eyes off the Too Faced stand! Or Soap & Glory for that matter!

  4. Bourjois products are quite hard to find in Canada but this summer I found a drugstore where I can buy them! I still haven't picked up anything from the brand as I didn't what was their most raved about items. I think I might start with their Rouge Velvet and one of their foundations!
