A post that I was tagged in by the lovely Jessica Hunter over at Coffee&Cosmetics.

The One & Only Tag

A tag about beauty products that I couldn't live without if I had to choose one of them there is just one question and that is,

If you could only have one ____ what would it be and why?

I am a massive fan of the Nivea moisturiser with primer inside but for hiding blemishes at its best I couldn't live without my Benefit POREfessional primer. I got my sample size in a Benefit face set and I love the silky like texture to the pro balm so light weight that once you've rubbed it all over your face you can't even feel it that much. It also contains Vitamin E and protects your skin from free radicals. It helps minimize my pores on those bad blemish days.

Base Product;
The foundation that I have loved from the minute I brought it has been MAC Studio Sculpt foundation in the shade NW20. I love a long wearing medium to full coverage foundation and this one ticks those boxes. Plus I have combination skin more on the dry side and this glides over so smoothly and and I think the gel base helps my dry areas and it feels so luxurious. It's very hydrating and it makes my skin feel alive and soft. I apply this with my Real Techniques expert face brush and it blends in lovely onto the skin, matches my skin tone perfectly. This and Rimmel 25 hour stay are my absolute favorites but if I had to choose one I'd defiantly choose this one.

All throughout the summer I have been loving cream blushes! I don't know if there best used in the summer or all year round but I've only been dabbling with cream blushes for a couple of months. A huge favorite of mine has been the Revlon Photoready Cream Blush in Coral Reef. A beautiful coraly pink blusher that would compliment any skin tones cheeks. You only need the tiniest bit dabbed onto your cheeks as it is super pigmented and lasts a good couple of hours. This is a staple in my make up bag and perfect if you've forgotten your blusher brush you can use your fingers. I will be branching out to new shades of these also to add to my blusher collection.

My day to day highlighter that I use is MUA's Undress your skin shimmer highlighter a subtle shine over your cheek bones, brow bone and cupids bow that gives a lovely shine to my skin to give me a subtle lovely glow. It feels so soft and I love the swirly pattern to the product I've had this a while and only use the tiniest bit so I think this will last me a long while. For £3 I really couldn't fault this product I love it.

Eyebrow Product;
Another MUA product, there so low in price but such good quality, you can't fault them! My favorite eyebrow product has to be there Pro Brow Kit. Its a small enough palette to fit into your handbag/make up bag and great for on the go with two eye brow shades, a highlighting shade for your brow bone but its far too dark for mine and a fixing gel to keep those brows intact throughout the day amonst two little tools, tweezers and an eyebrow brush I don't tend to use these but there great for on the go. Since I went blonde as well I thought I can't use this but the lightest shade works perfectly to match my hair colour. A great palette I think and great price!

This is easy for me! My absolute favorite mascara that I have never come across anything better before has to be Yves Rocher Sexy Pulp ultra volume mascara. Everything about it is perfect! Honestly go out and buy it now I couldn't recommend it enough to you all. It doesn't clump, it volumises, it just makes your lashes look amazing. The wand just hugs to your lashes just please try it out! I'm sure you will love it as much as I do. I'm running out so will have to repurchase this ans I shall always repurchase this! 

Vichy Dermablend Ultra - Corrective Cream Stick in Porcelain. This concealer is the best thing in the world! I have a sample of all different shades that have all worked on my skin when I've had fake tan and not. Porcelain is an amazing shade for under your eyes to make them look vibrant and alive and really brings them out. And the other shades to fit your individual skin tone really does help cover your blemishes its fantastic stuff! I'm defiantly picking this up in full form soon.

I'm not a huge powder fan as it makes me look cakey as it clings to all my dry areas I've tried numerous powders and numerous techniques it's just not for me. But when I do use the smallest bit I always go back to Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. 

A bit of a cheat with this as the bronzer I love is infact a powder blush but its far too dark for my skin tone to use as blusher so I use it as a bronzer and I love it so much I've hit pan on it and will need to do a repurchase. It gives a great definition to your cheek bones and inner nose a gorgeous colour MAC Powder Blush in Sincere. 

Make Up Brush (Single);
This would have to be my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, even though my puppy kindly chewed the handle it's still in tact thankfully but will need replacing as it has seen better days. But this puts my foundation on perfectly I adore this brush along with all of my Real Techniques brushes there all amazing. Sam Chapman your amazing.

Eye shadow; 
Without a doubt my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette I really could not live without this! Every single shade in there I love and would wear any shade any day. A gorgeous array of creams, nudes, browns, shimmers, mattes and great for a smoky eye effect well worth the money. I'm sure almost every beauty blogger out there has this already though.

I have only been using this a short while but also loving this quickly it is just so easy to apply onto your eyelids with just one little stroke. Its the Eyeko London Skinny Mini Black liquid eyeliner. A staple in my bag now and review coming soon.

I don't know if this classes as a lip gloss as its a lip lacquer but it feels and looks like a lip gloss and these are fab! The Rimmel london Apocalips Lip Lacquers in shade Celestial. I love the product and the shade. So easy to apply they go on very wet but dry instantly and look so lovely and glossy on your lips.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivid Lipstick has been my favorite lipstick in the shade Shocking coral. A gorgeous bright pink coral colour almost neon. Not only is the colour gorgeous it has fantastic lasting power! This has lasted throughout the day and night for me and I really do need to get more shades from this range. If you love good lasting power you really will love these. You can't beat a bright lipstick to make your face complete although I do love a nudey pink.

  2. Pregnancy Plus can play a vital role in effectively providing vitamins and minerals to both the mother and the baby paving way to a healthy pregnancy and ensuring baby’s optimal level of health. It carefully considers the fact that women lose essential vitamins and minerals during the prenatal phase, and so works to replace them so that their health is not affected. It is the latest addition to the popular supplement range from VitaBalance.
