TAG: 10 Makeup Products I would Repurchase!

Hi Bellas,

I saw this fun tag going around YouTube on 10 Makeup Products I Would Repurchase.  Essentially, these are the top 10 items I would repurchase if all my makeup was burnt in a fire, lol.  I tried to mix it with high and low-end to give you all some options.  These 10 makeup items would be great for an essentials makeup kit as well.  Check it out!

Before I get into the products, I took this tag to mean if I lost all my makeup and I had to start over, these are the products I would purchase.  They are mainly neutral, must-haves which can go with many looks.  The key is to start with the basics and then add fun colors later.

1) Blush 
I recently added MAC Gingerly to my makeup collection and it is a great color that goes with every makeup look.  Wet N Wild in Heather Silk is another awesome blush and it's super affordable.  
2) Contour
Contouring is a must in my book.  My HG product is MAC Blunt blush. It's a great matte bronzing/contour color.
3) Lips
Aquaphor is seriously a must-have for me.  I will never stray.  It works better than any other lip conditioner I've ever tried.  If I had to pick a color product, I'd go with MAC Viva Glam V Lipglass.  It's a mauve tone with gold shimmer that looks good on everyone.
4) Liner
I always go with classic black liner.  I've got to have liquid and a pencil to do the job.  Revlon Colorstay Liquid Liner in Blackest Black is a classic favorite of mine, and Milani Liquif'Eye pencil is an affordable amazing, smudgy black pencil.
5) Eyeshadow 
If I had to start out with any eyeshadow palette - it would be the Eye on Neutral by Sonia Kashuk.  It's got a perfect range of neutrals and they're all matte - my fav!  I  would also recommend Wet N Wild's Vanity Palette but i'm not sure if that's limited edition.  I will say that you should add some shimmer to your eye look for balance so keep that in mind as well.
6) Lashes
My lashes kinda suck, so mascara doesn't really do it for me.  I usually use false lashes and my favorite are Sonia Kashuk Full Glamour Lashes.  They really open up your eyes.  I'd pair them with my favorite lash glue - Revlon Lash Adhesive
Revlon-Lash-Adhesive
7) Brows
Tarte EmphasEyes Brow Pencil is definitely my go-to.
8) Concealer
Ben Nye Neutralizer Cream Crayon is my corrector of choice and i'd pair it with Jemma Kidd Concealer Duo in Medium which has both a yellow highlight shade and a skin toned concealer.

9) Foundation 
Palladium Herbal Foundation is always a favorite - you can find it at Sally Beauty.  I also could live with just using Sonia Kashuk Tinted Moisturizer - it's great for everyday and the coverage can be built up for evening.


10) Powder 
You gotta have a powder to set your foundation.  I choose MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark because I know it's going to work without any problems - the shade is great and the semi-glowy finish is super flattering.  



Tag, you're it!  Let me know some of your must-haves in the comments below!

Great list! I love the Revlon lash glue. I've found it in dark so it'll blend better into my black lashes. :)

I love you blog! Your newest follower. :)

I'm a single mom and don't have much money to spend on makeup, so I have to keep it cheap. My FAV eyeliner is e.l.f. Creme Eyeliner, and you can get it at Target for about $2! It comes with a small brush too, which is great to toss in my bag or clutch for touch-ups!
