July Empties & Mini Reviews - Make-up

Today I'll be sharing with you the make-up products that I have used up in the month of July. I never normally have any empty make-up products so you can really tell that I have loved something if I've used it all up! I'll be posting a separate empties post of all the skin care items I have finished so look out for that.

Maybelline Baby Skin: This is a pore perfecting and skin smoothing primer. I did really like this product, it fills pores and makes the skin silky soft. It can be a bit greasy though but when I had dry skin I found that it helped my foundation not stick to dry patches.
Would I repurchase?
Yes, at £7.99 it's a good alternative to Porefessional.
Rimmel Glam Eyes liquid eyeliner: Before I started to really get into make-up this eyeliner was my holy grail. Every time I ran out I would instantly go and pick another tube up. I do really like it but after becoming more knowledgeable about make-up I found that it didn't last all day and it started to flake.
Would I repurchase?
I don't think I would, I really want to try better liquid liners so please leave your favourites in the comments below.
Benefit Porefessional: Love love love this stuff! It blurs pores, smoothes the skin and helps my make-up stay on longer. It's definitely the best primer I've used. It lasted me a good few months too! Maybe six?!
Would I repurchase?
I really want to but the £24.50 price tag is so steep for my student budget!
L'Oreal True Match foundation: Holy grail foundation right here. If you've been reading my blog for a while you know that I love this stuff so much! The coverage is great and so is the finish. It's the perfect foundation for me.
Would I repurchase?
Yes and I already have! I want to buy a back-up just in case it runs out again and I have to go without it.

  2. I recently rediscovered l'oreal true match. I had stopped using it a while ago, so it was at the bottom of my makeup stash until i went through it all and put it into new drawers. When i saw this i decided to give it another go and i remembered why i love when it first came out years ago, but in the vial packaging. I just need it to be a more of a shade match. Lol

    1. Oh right, it's so good isn't it! Ah such a shame that they don't have your shade. x

  3. The Porefessional and the LOreal true match are staples in my make up bag. Such great products.

  4. I recently tried the felt tip eyeliner from Collection Cosmetics, and it was really great, you might like that. You can see me use it on my friend here - http://lenatalksbeauty.com/2014/08/05/mua-for-a-day/

  5. I really want to try the L'Oreal true match foundation; it sounds like it would be good at covering redness as you say it has great coverage. Love this post! The little reviews for each product are so helpful. x

  6. if your looking for benefit porefessional check out cohorted.co.uk I've just purchased at moment it's got 6% off which isn't a lot but the more that purchase the more it gets off! the lorac pro palette is due on there soon too I've heard! so I'm super excited!


  7. I've only just recently purchased the L'Oreal True Match foundation :) it's the first drug store to match my skin and it gives such good coverage! So impressed :) Glad you like it just as much!
