What makeup products I'm using?

One of the most asked questions I get is  'What products are you using at the moment?'
I always like to know what others are using as well as it is a great way to find out what products are working for others and to work out if you want to try it too.

The lovely Nav whose blog is called Navlandstyle tagged me to do the '10 most reached for products' post.

I am always changing the products I use as I like trying new things and reviewing them. So I picked the ten products I have been using these last few weeks, some of them I have done a full review on.

Loreal True Match Roll on Foundation - this foundation has a great smooth texture and covers redness and blemishes well and is buildable. I don't use the roll on device but rather a makeup sponge to apply it. I like the flawless look it gives my skin.

Maybelline Dream Mousse concealer - I love the soft and creamy texture to this concealer. It feels lightweight and gives good coverage. You only need a little bit otherwise it will look cakey. Its great to cover up blemishes and fine lines.

Revlon Growluscious Mascara by Fabulash - I like the way this lengthens and adds volume to my lashes. It also claims to condition and strengthen your lashes which I do feel like they are strengthened when I wear it all day.

Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal eye pencil - I have a few of these in different colours and love them. I prefer using liquid eyeliner for dramatic looks, but if I want eyeliner during the day for a soft look I use this one. It applies smoothly, soft and great colours.

Australis Stayput lipliner - This is a retractable lip liner which I use all the time. The colour is brown so suits most lip colours and it stays on for a long time.

Face of Australia Face Base Primer - This is a great primer that is easy to apply, smooth and absorbs well into the skin. A great base before applying your foundation. It helps to keep your foundation on longer well. It also has vitamin E and chamomile which are great for the skin.

Bourjois Gloss Effet 3D - This is a great gloss to put over a lipstick to give you a really glossy look and gives the lips a really nice volumised look.

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick - These are soft and creamy lipsticks that have great pigmentation. They are moisturising and have honey and vitamine E in them and have great staying power.

Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Blush - This is a great packaged product, the lid has a brush in it so it is easy for application. This is a silky soft blush that looks great on and the colour is really well pigmented.

Olay total effects daily serum - This serum is affordable and feels great on the skin. It is a silky soft texture and I use it under my night moisturiser to soften my skin and it fights the signs of skin aging. Gives my skin a radiant glow and hydrates well.

You can check out my You Tube channel for my monthly favourite products and reviews.

If there is anyone out there that would like to do this tag post, let me know I'd love to see what you are using!

Are there any products that you use all the time that you love?

I also use the Rimmel soft kohl eye pencil and I love it! It blends so nicely and easily. I use navy blue as it makes the whites of my eyes look really bright. I also use the Face of Australia Blush, I love the colour!

Love the Bourjois Gloss 3D effect too! and was wondering about the L'Oreal foundation with roller. I trust your reviews so will give it a go. So far L'Oreal & Bourjois products have never disappointed me!

@crashing red - The Loreal foundation is great but I don't like the roll on applicator. I use a makeup sponge instead. Give it a go and if you don't like the roll on just use a makeup sponge. The product itself is pretty good for a affordable foundation.
