3 Items That I Would Repurchase

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Every now and again, a product comes along that is really just something out of the ordinary.... and by 'out of the ordinary', I mean something that you sit and admire the outstanding quality of, and immediately wonder how you ever did without said product in the past. Well, lately for me, this feeling has come over me on a number of occasions and as the time to repurchase a few of my most beloved items approaches, I thought it would be a nice idea to tell you a little about each of them today....



One of the first items that springs to mind when I think of something that I will almost definitely repurchase, just has to be the Pixi Glow Tonic. This stuff has received such hype from all corners of the blogging world, as well from many others outside of it, and I have to admit that I would be the first to sing it's praises after using this rather amazing solution for almost a year now. When I first received my little bottle of this product (the 100ml bottle, as part of the M&S Advent Calendar last year), to be honest I did think that it was merely just another cleansing product, and was perhaps sort of like some of the micellar water items that I had previously owned...


How wrong I was! Firstly, the Pixi Glow Tonic is not a cleanser, it is in fact an exfoliating product, and is recommended for use after cleansing to completely rid your face of any of the nasty left over beauty items from throughout the day. A quick swoosh of this tonic all over the face and neck, really leaves the skin feeling incredibly fresh and ultimately aids in the smoothing of your skin tone and texture. I have found this product particularly useful in helping to exfoliate my t-zone and nose, as after going at those areas with a cotton wool pad of this stuff, they really do feel a lot healthier, and not so oily and gross. Unfortunately, my bottle of Pixi Glow Tonic is now at the end of my life span (I do have to say that it did last very well indeed though), and my mind is now hellbent on repurchasing this item as quickly as possible - I know for a fact that M&S stock all the Pixi products, so a search of their web page is definitely on the cards over the next couple of weeks.

** since writing this post, I have in fact repurchased this tonic, and now have a nice full bottle of the stuff to get through once again!


Another great (and I mean great) item, that I really do not think I could live without, has to be the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. This particular product has been in my possession since the beginning of July, after a trip to Sephora whilst in California led to curiosity getting the better of me in terms of this item. After testing out several shades on my hand, I eventually opted for Vanilla - which I have to say, suits my skin tone pretty perfectly, and doesn't leave me looking too ghostly pale or too dark and blotchy, as other concealers have done in the past.


From the first application of this product, I just knew that it was to become a staple in my everyday makeup routine...and I definitely wasn't far wrong with that verdict either, as over the past few months I have been using this concealer over and over again, on most days, to cover pesky blemishes and correct any ugly discoloured patches. There is certainly a heck of a lot of hype over this product, and after finally trying it out for myself, I can now safely say that I totally get why everyone is so in love with this concealer and regard it as such a cult favourite. At the moment, I think I am still pretty much in the clear with my bottle, as no drying out is to be seen (yet anyway) - although, I do know for a fact that once the inevitable happens and I have ran out of this amazing product (that just seems to blend so well over foundation, and stays firmly in place for pretty much the best part of the day), I will just have to go out and buy it for myself again...even though the price tag of £22.50 is a little bit of an issue when you're a student, like myself.




The final product that I am going to mention today, in terms of something that I am sure to repurchase in the future, is the Morphe Eyeshadow Palette. Since the day I first heard about the Morphe Palettes (and even more so when I first saw a photo of them), I just knew that I had to get my hands on one - as a great lover of eyeshadow, seeing so many people with such a beautiful product really did make me feel like I was missing out, but the selection of palettes on offer really doesn't make it easy for you to decide on which one to buy.


After my Birthday earlier this year, I finally opted to treat myself to the 35W Palette, and in all honesty, fell in love as soon as I opened it up and gave it a go... All the shadows inside are so incredibly pigmented (as you can hopefully see from the swatches of my favourites below), and what's more, the range of colours that you actually get is pretty fantastic considering the price tag of £19.50 (from Beauty Bay). Obviously, due to the mass of product that you actually receive with such a Morphe Palette, I am yet to hit pan on any of the shadows and am probably quite far off doing so too. However, I am one for planning ahead, and already know that I would just love to get myself another of the Morphe Eyeshadow Palettes in the future (I do love the one that I currently own, but there are just so many others out there, that I don't think I could resist trying out a different one next time), as I would have to regard mine as one of the best eyeshadow palettes that I have tried - maybe even better than Urban Decay (ooooh controversial)!


Everyone has a completely differing set of products that they love and value the most, but hopefully today I managed to shed a little light on the items that I adore the most, and why I feel so strongly about them (and want to repurchase them in the future)...

  2. I recently picked up that concealer in Custard but it's way too dark, I have just reordered it in Vanilla and hopefully it will be a better match. I can't wait to try it, everyone seems to love it!

  3. All of the 35 palettes are awesome! Don't have this one though, may need to change that.

    I think I'm the only person in the world that wasn't a fan of the NARS concealer though.
