Products That I Can Live Without

Whilst packing to go away I realised that I had so many makeup products that I know that I could live without and as many others probably will agree. I just think that some products that I have aren’t as necessary as others and I thought I would share with you guys some of the products that I think aren’t as necessary as others.

I do enjoy using a setting spray and I know some people love it and live for them. Personally I believe that they are a nice addition to my makeup routine but not something I would ever rely on for everyday makeup. I do like to use them when I’m going on a night out or evening event when I want my makeup to especially last longer than normal. However, I do have some favourites which include the Urban Decay Setting Spray and the Rimmel Insta Fix & Go.

Now I don’t always wear blush as my cheeks often tend to show their natural blush anyway and I really enjoy wearing just bronzer and looking quite tan anyway. If I do wear blush it normal a peach toned shade and often matte simply because I don’t like too much shimmer on my face when I do like highlight.

I also think lip liners aren’t totally necessary. In my entire makeup collection I own two lip liners which include a L’Oreal lipliner and a Mac Factor universal lip liner which really made me realise that lip liners are totally unnecessary. I quite like the shape of my lips and I definitely do not enjoy the overdrawn look at all. Although I know so many people love them and rely on them to make their lips look a bit more plumty and sultry. I also don’t enjoy having too many products on my lips at once so if I do wear them it’s always alone and with no gloss or lipsticks on top at all.

Let me know some of the products that you think are unessary and you don’t need in your makeup bag. In the mean time, follow me on my social media:

Rimmel Fix and Prime Spray

I have been an all time lover of the Urban Decay All-Nighter Setting Spray. Together we are in a long term committed relationship and I’ve been loving it for a very long time. However, I recently come across the Rimmel Insta Fix & Go Setting Spray which I got from Superdrug for £6.99 and I feel like I’ve been having a secret but very happy affair with it and it may continue to go on for a very long time. 

This product is a primer and setting spray which I love. I always like to apply my Maybelline Baby Primer and allow that to sink in and then spray the Rimmel Fix and Spray evenly across my face. I find that the best technique is to apply it in a cross shape in the air and let it settle onto the skin and wait for it to dry. It applies very quickly and it doesn’t make me look wet at all or overly dewy either. It really helps my makeup last a lot longer too. It doesn’t have any scent either which makes me happy since I’m not a huge fan of overly scented products at all. 

I will admit, it doesn’t beat the Urban Decay setting spray but I do think it’s a brilliant and affordable alternative in the drugstore. It’s definitely ideal for beginners and would be an excellent product for those on a budget. The biggest issue that I have with this is the spriz on the botle top, I find that it doesn’t spray enough and I have to spend a fair while ensuring that it’s applied to the whole of my face. Admittedly,  it does work better with the crossing technique but a better spritz would definitely make this the perfect product.
