Okay I don’t really have proper storage and this isn’t really my full collection it is just everything that has come to university with me so I just thought I’d do a lovely little post of everything I own/use regularly enough to justify bringing.
As you can see everything has its places and are relatively easy to get to and with my current set up this is the idea make up set up as its next to the window so I can do my make up effortlessly in natural light. So now I’ll show you the majority of my collection as I missed the odd bits out (because I’m useless) and then a mini opinion on each of them or what I use it for.
L’oreal Skin Perfection Cleansing and Perfecting Milk: I haven’t used that much of this much as I’ve been swapping which products I’ve been using and so far I do like this.
The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter: I love Body Shop body deeply hydrating and they smell delicious, I always by them on offer as they are a lot but I don’t think they are overpriced as a little can go a long way. So find your perfect scent and buy one.
Nivea Daily Essentials Express Hydration Primer Sensitive: The perfect base for everyday and I love this however, I feel like I’ve mentioned this loads. I have sensitive opposed to normal as I’ve been having more breakouts recently so I felt like this was best.
Superdrug Deep Action Anti Blemish Gel: This is a fairly recent purchase which I haven’t used that much yet but I am going to review once I feel like I’ve used this long enough to give and informed review.
Nivea Daily Essentials Regenerating Night Cream Normal and Combination Skin: On bucking up my skin care routine I’ve kept meaning to buy a night cream, this was half price in Superdrug and I love Nivea so it was a no brainer cannot wait to get used to incorporating it into my daily routine.
Superdrug Cleansing Face Wipes in Sensitive: Brought these and they were a complete dud, I couldn’t be bothered when I got in to do the full take off so decided to use a wipe then remove the rest fully later. Well it barely removed anything and my eye shadow was fully intact despite saying it even removes waterproof makeup. When I have enough (i have 3 already) I may do a disappointing products post.
The Body Shop Love Ect Body Lotion: When my hands are dry this typically comes in my bag with me I really need to move this into one of them, unfortunately love ect has been discontinued.
Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Eye Makeup Remover: This is so thick and creamy and feels amazing on the skin I’m really enjoying it and will definitely repurchase it.
Tesco Everyday Value Facial Wipes: Honestly the best make up wipes I have ever used, it even removes tough waterproof makeup. I tend to only use wipes when I get in late or I’m feel really lazy but they are always handy to have around.
Superdrug Deep Action Pore-Cleansing Nose Strips: These were a buy one get one free item and they are alright and I will use them but they aren’t great.
Sanex Zero Roll on: This is great for working out and is a really heavy duty deodorant.
Compressed Dove Antiperspirant in Beauty Finish and Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena: The pomegranate one is my favourite deodorant and my boyfriend loves it too so I have two as he tends to steal them.
Superdrug Nail Varnish Remover: This is almost done and is pretty much a bog standard and really good nail varnish remover, no point spending money where it isn’t needed.
Superdrug Moisturising Nail Varnish Remover: This I bought this as a replacement for the other one but this leaves an oily residue on the skin that I am really not keen on and it doesn’t feel likes it works as well but I will use it up.
Sainsburys and Superdrug Cotton Pads: I tend to buy the baby ones as they are much bigger and more useful for take makeup off although the small ones are good for nail varnish. However, I am currently stuck with all small as this is what happens when you ask your boyfriend to pick some up for you.
Mark Hill De Frizz Control and Shine Spray: This was a pound shop gem and it was absolutely amazing I’m going to be sad when it’s used up as it was discontinued. Basically the most amazing light hold shine spray ever.
Aussie Miracle Recharge Shine Leave in Conditioner: I reviewed this the other day so check that out here.
Superdrug Extra Firm Hold Hair Spray: I used this occasionally and it holds so well, only problem with it is that it goes so stiff and crunchy so I’m on the look out for something new but will still have a high level of hold.
TRESemme Heat Defence Spray: Basically the ultimate heat defence spray which I cannot do without, something that everyone should own.
Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo: Brought this for travel over the summer and its lasted me ages as I don’t use it that often but it is simply amazing although I’m not overly keen on the scent of the blush one.
The Body Shop Hair Chalk: I bought this last easter and haven’t used it overly much as I haven’t really had the occasion too, it is a stunningly beautiful colour and works really well even with dark brown hair.
Makeup Academy Pro-base Fixing Spray: I used this loads over the summer especially during long days of working events and its so good or I use it when I have like a 12 hour day out of the house due to lectures and work.
Foot Pack: This is absolutely amazing as I have such bad cracked feet and I constantly rebuy it.
Urban Decay Naked 3: This was a gift from my boyfriend and I absolutely love it, i use it most days it is the most beautiful and pigmented shadows. I’d highly recommend it if you are considering a naked palette.
Makeup Academy Heaven and Earth Palette: The most perfect budget neutral palette and I’m getting close to hitting pan on one or two luckily I’m so obsessed with my naked palette this has been saved.
Make Up Academy Pretty Edgy Palette: The main reason I wanted this was that I really loved the packaging it is just absolutely beautiful and the colours are amazing too anyway, its definitely more of an evening look palette though.
Barry M Super Chic Palette (Superdrug Limited Edition): One of those saw it, wanted it and bought it as its beautiful despite being out of your comfort zone.
So these are all my Elizabeth Arden Miniatures that I absolutely love in order there is: Green Tea; Mediterranean; Sunflower; Red Door and Pretty.
As this is a long post and it’s taken me a while to write I am splitting it in two and the second half will be up in a few days. I love finding out about different peoples make up storage options and their main collection how they lay out their everyday products. How do you store your makeup? Whats in your everyday make up collection?
