10 Products I would repurchase

So I've noticed this tag going around which is getting quite popular on youtube and it's the '10 Products I would repurchase' tag. I thought it might be fun for me to do this as well! I feel like a kid again going through my makeup drawers and picking out the 10 products. But it's also hard to just pick 10 because there are quite a few other products that I know I would repurchase too. 

Also, if you notice I didn't include any eye shadows and that's because I normally prefer to buy palettes rather than a single eye shadow so if I were to repurchase an eye shadow I'd have to buy the whole palette. Guess I shall share with you guys my top eye shadows in another blog post some other time! 

Laneige Makeup Primer - Sebum Control

The first product is this primer which I love and use all the time! I believe I've had this for more than a year now and there's still a good amount of it left in this tube! It's totally worth it even though it might be a bit pricey compared to Revlon's or L'oreal's primer. I prefer this over the drugstore ones because this makes my skin feels smoother. And it smells really good too!

 Revlon ColorStay foundation in Early Tan

I've tried a handful of foundations and in the end I found that I always go back to this. I think it's because this has a low SPF in it and I tend to take pictures after applying makeup for whatever reason so I chose this to avoid looking white in photos. This is also probably the longest lasting foundation I own.

 Skin79 Sun Protect Beblesh Pact SPF30

I use this to set my foundation most of the times and it's a decent product. I prefer this over the MAC Studio Fix because this is less thick and doesn't cake up if you apply it generously. I never use the powder puff it comes with, normally I just use a kabuki brush and buff it into my skin. I am kinda weird with powders, I don't like it being too thick but I want it to give me a smooth finish.

 Revlon Grow Luscious Lash Liner in Onyx

This is probably my favorite black eyeliner! It works similar to the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil but cost so much cheaper. There's really nothing else I can say about this except that I love it lol

 Maybelline Volum' Express Cat Eyes Mascara

I have gone through several tubes of this mascara and I know I am going to repurchase this again once it's gone. I am not exactly blessed with thick luscious lashes so this helps a lot in giving the illusion of having thicker lashes! Again, I've tried a few other mascaras but lo and behold this is the one I always go back to.

 Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter

I have to say I had a really hard time choosing the lip products! There are so many others which I love but in the end I chose the Revlon Lip Butters simply because they are affordable, moisturizing, creamy and pigmented! What more can you ask for in a lip product? The cute packaging helps too, of course!

Etude House Easy Brow Pencil

This I love because it's easy to use and easy to travel with. The only thing is I have to sharpen it every once in a while but I don't really mind doing that. It's also quite cheap, I think I paid about B$6.90 for this! Don't have much to say about this except that it's an essential in my daily makeup routine. I can't go out without my brows, you know. haha

 Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner

This is one of the first makeup products I purchase when I started getting really into makeup! It's a true black unlike many of those marker pen liners which are easy to use but comes out looking grey-ish and transparent-ish. This one's perfect and I don't think I will even bother looking for other liquid liners out there. Maybe next time when I am overseas but certainly not in Brunei.

 NYX powder blush

The blusher in the picture above is called Mocha and this is one of the blushers that I reach for the most even though I barely made a dent in it! Looks brand new in the shot actually haha Anyways I think Mocha is great for every day use and I like that it's a slightly muted peachy color which I always tend to go for. Somehow pinks are not my favorite color for blushers because they look quite unnatural on my tanned skin-tone.

MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle

I tried not to go for makeup products that is unavailable locally because it would be difficult for me to repurchase these products if they are inaccessible! But I knew I had to make an exception here because there is simply no other products like this that I can purchase locally in Brunei! The MAC MSF in Soft and Gentle is a beautiful highlighter and I use it to highlight my cheekbones. You can also use it on the cupid's bow or on the bridge of the nose for that extra glow.

So there you go, the 10 products I would repurchase! Feel free to do this tag if it tickles your fancy!


  1. @BeachWedding thanks for the support!

  2. Hi! Nice to see your favourites :) Although many of them are totally unknown for me and are not available in Finland, but I'll keep my eyes open when traveling around the world :)

    I totally agree with you on MAC Soft & Gentle. I don't think I'll ever be able to finish it though, because even after 6 months of using it almost daily, it looks like it's straight from the store :D

    I really like your blog and started following it now :) Hope you'll follow me back! -Marjo / happytarist.blogspot.fi

  3. @marjoritamaki haha I know what you mean! It's good though because that way we know that the product lasts a really long time! :D Thanks for the follow, I'll follow back! xx
