My mother's make up!09:00:00
Like most girls, I believe I was first introduced to make up and the whole concept of it through my mother. Do you remember those days when you'd go through your mums stash and try on any items of hers, regardless of whether or not you used it properly!! The days of it being acceptable to wear excessive amounts of blusher or bronzer are long behind me.
Now that I am nineteen years old and have built up my own personal collection of products I like and use on myself, I can't help but nosey through my mum's make up bag and see what items she carries around with her. I thought it was interesting that she bought herself a Rimmel London Kate Moss red lipstick after seeing mine.
Anyway, I proceeded to scurry through the rest of her cosmetic treasures. I thought it would be an interesting and different post to share some of the items she's been keeping, some which I may rob when I get bored of using the same products I have used on pretty much a daily basis.
So let's move on to some of my top picks from my mum's make up bag that I will be trying in the next few weeks.
These first items are the foundation and blusher my mum uses on pretty much a daily basis at the moment. The foundation is the No7 Stay Perfect Foundation in the shade cool beige. I am not sure how this colour would suit me, but I would love to give it a try because I have never given the brand No7 a try before. The Blusher is in the shade honey and in many ways reminds me a lot of "Coralista", a blush by benefit, but it definitely is a bit more orange toned than Coralista in my opinion,
Next we have two red lipsticks which I thought were interesting enough to put in this post. The one in the Black Packaging is a Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in the shade 01, a very prominent rose red colour, quite comparable to MAC Russian Red. The second one is a lipstick with impeccable silver packaging from Clinque in the shade Cranberry Cream. It is kind of a brown-y red with more of a glossy finish which I would love to try one of these days on my lips.
Finally onto a few eye products I spotted in her stash. Her holy grail mascara is the Rimmel Lash accelerator. I have probably used this on before, but I do not recall what it looks like, so I'd definitely like to try this and see what it looks like.
She also has two products from essence. I was never a fan of their eyeshadow sets, but for some reason my mother has one in these awful green and blue tone shades. I think they may suit her better because she has blue eyes where as mine are hazel. However, she does own a brown eyeliner from essence also. I much prefer using brown pencils and eyeshadows to line my eyes because they are much more natural looking, so this gets a big plus in my mind.
Have you tried any of these products? Or do you go through your mother's or even your sister's make up stash? Please let me know in the comments!!
Bye for now,
