Hello my loves. So i’ve recently seen the ‘Ride or Die Makeup Tag’ making it’s way around YouTube and the blogosphere. The tag was created by YouTuber Jaclyn Hill. I thought the idea was great in that you literally just share all of your holy grail makeup products. The products that are your ‘ride or die’, so i thought it was a but of fun and decided to join in! (I did add a few categories myself that i thought were missing!)
Nivea For Men Post Shave Balm
The primer that has sent the blogging world into a frenzy. A shaving balm as a primer?? It just works.
Mac Studio Fix Fluid
Foundation for me was one of the hardest categories as their are so many love. But when it comes down to it it has to be this one. It cover everything, has a full flawless coverage finish and lasts all day.
Mac Studio Finish
This concealer is my ride or die when it comes to covering pimpes, blemishes and redness around my nose. It’s a thick cream consistency but blends beautifuly.
Under Eye Concealer
NYX HD Concealer
It was love at first ‘use’ when it comes to this little guy. I have gone through countless tubes of this and i will continue to. My holy grail!
Maybelline Fit Me
I’ve never fallen in love with a powder until this one. I always thought powder was a bit of a ‘meh’ product, as long as it set my foundation well then it made the cut, but this baby does so much more. It doesn’t make me look flat or powdery. It has an irridensence to it that just makes my skin look amazing.
Under Eye Setting Powder
NYX HD Setting Powder in Banana
I love a good yellow powder to brighten up and set my undereye and this powder is my go to. It’s really finely milled and doesn’t seep into any lines under my eyes and stops my under eye concealer from creasing, which as always been a job other powders failed at.
Essence Matte Touch Blush in Berry Me Up!
Probably one of the cheapest make up items i own yet it’s one of the best. The formulation on these blushes are amazing. The are so soft and buttery and blend like a dream. My go to colour is ‘Berry Me Up!’ , it’s a lovely dark berry colour that look beautiful on my skin tone.
Bourjois Chocolate Bronzer
Hands down my favourite bronzer and has been for years. It’s not muddy or orange it’s the perfect colour, and it smells like chocolate!
NYX HD Blush in Taupe
It’s so hard to find a contour that is the right shade. Most are too orange or to red. However this little guy is perfect, it’s grey toned and perefectly mimics a shadow.
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
This highlighter is my life. That’s all i have to say.
Maybelline Lash Sensational
Maybelline has always been my ride or die mascara brand, my fav is the lash sensational it has a curved rubber brush and really grabs every lash and open them up and gives mega voluume.
Sleek ‘Storm’ Palette
This palette has everything you need to create any look. Shimmers, mattes, neutrals, smokey, brights. Everything. Sleek has one of the best consitencys of eyeshadows on the market. This palette has been my bestie for years.
NYC Liquid Liner
Cheap, chirpy, ultra black, easy to apply and long lasting. Everything you would want in a liquid eyeliner.
Barry M Bold Black Liner
I’ve never really been a fan of pencil liners as i’ve always found them to hard or not the right consistency. However this liner is amazing. It has a gel consistancy and so eaisily glides on my lower lash line. Once it’s on it doesn’t budge and it’s so black!
No.7 Moisture Drench Lipstick in ‘Mulberry’
Lipstick had to be the hardest category in this tag. There are so many lipsticks i love. I eneded up going for my everyday faultless favourite. This colour is the perfect ‘ your lips but better’ shade. It’s so comfortable and hydrating that it feels like a lip balm.
Jeffery Star Liquid Lipstick in ‘Androgymy’
This liquid lipstick was the first of it’s kind that i ever brought and i’ve loved it since day one. I find a lot of liquid lipsticks are really uncomfortable once they have dried however this one doesn’t and the colour payoff is amazing! I neeeeeeeed more of these!
Soap and Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss
I lov lipglosses that tingle and plump your lips however their are a lot on the market that burn. This offering from soap and glory is just the right amount of tingle, they actually do plump my lips and i can tell the difference when i wear a normal gloss.
Ardell Demi Wispies
The perfect everyday lash, because they are wispy they look really natural and just enhance your eyes perfectly.
Not a setting spray as much in the sense that in will make your makeup stay on longer however it does set your makeup by taking away that powdery look that your sometimes left with. I use this spray in so many different ways and it probabley my most favourite makeup product ever.
Boss Nuit For Her
This was a hard one. I has a very mixed taste when it comes to perfume. I love sickly sweet scents but i also love deep, sexy and musky scnets. This perfume is the perfect mix. It’s light and crisp yet feminine and sexy. It’s perfect for day or night has and has been my signature scent for a long time now.
