The Repurchases

Occasionally I come across products that just work and those products will be repurchased over and over (and even sometimes over- I'm looking at you Collection 2000 concealor!) again. My safety products I know will work if all else fails. 

I'm slightly ashamed to even be showing you how many tubes of the Collection 2000 concealor I've accumulated over a short time (and I'm sure plenty have been thrown away as well!) but surely that just shows you how much I like it. It doesn't get much better than using a new tube when you've been scraping the edges for product. If I need a concealor with high coverage, that'll last all day and blends effortlessly ill grab this. The colour range is limited as with most drugstore concealors so I tend to mix and match between a couple depending on the time of year which works great. As you can see from the packaging the writing down the side comes off almost immediately but at £4.19 a tube I can see myself forever repurchasing just in case. 

If its a foundation that's budge proof, available in an array of colours with a high coverage you're after look no further than Estée Lauder Double Wear. If anyone asks for a recommendation my reply is always 'Have you tried double wear?!' Its best points for me are that I can apply it in the morning before work and it'll still be there by the time I get home 11 hours later which I can't say for many other foundations I've tried. I like to apply it with my Real Techniques 'buffing brush' to achieve a flawless base. A quick tip I've learnt is you've got to work with it fast or its staying where its been put! 

I only recently repurchased the Bourjois bronzer which I mentioned in my last post and its made its way firmly into my everyday routine. It's so quick and easy to use with a quick swirl of my Gosh Kabuki brush then a sweep over the face to give you that holiday glow in seconds. I also did a review of the Make Up Forever mascara in my 'Holiday Haulin' post from the summer. I've tried a few other mascaras since then but always find myself gravitating back to this to give my eyelashes that extra oomph. The extra black looks great for defining the lashes whilst lengthening and adding volume all in one, if only it was easier to get hold of in the UK.

What are your most repurchased products? 


  1. I absolutely love this post! So interesting to see what people have liked enough to repurchase, it's definitely a honest review as you're not going to repurchase unless you absolutely love something!

  2. Loved this post! I love that concealer so much!

  3. It makes so much sense to rebuy the same product if you love it-- that way you can mix the shades as you said! I always accumulate a ton of lancome mascaras-- they are my favorite and almost always the only ones I use!
