The "One and Only" TAG

I was tagged by Amber from Amber's Beauty Talk to do this "One and Only" tag. I thought it sounded like a fun one to do so here it is! You basically just need to pick one product from each of the make-up categories (there's a lot of them!), answering the question "If you could only have one ______ what would it be and why?"

Base Product - On a normal day I go for Madara's Moon Flower Tinting Fluid. It has a sheer coverage but gives you a light and natural looking glow! If I want a full face of make-up though it would be Maybelline's Dream Satin Liquid (yes I know, naughty me it's not natural! I'm still using up my old make-up before replacing). This foundation in Ivory matches my skin perfectly and gives a flawless medium-full coverage. I just hope I can find a natural foundation similar to this when it runs out.

Concealer - On minimal make-up days it's Lily Lolo's Mineral Concealer (reviewed here). This one covers up my dark under-eye circles pretty well, plus it's natural! For full make-up days again I have one that's not natural - Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer which also covers up my dark circles well and is really good for brightening the eye area.

Powder - This one's easy... BareMinerals Mineral Veil. It's just awesome! Sets make-up perfectly and stops everything from sliding off my face halfway through the day!

Blush - I actually only got UNE's Breezy Cheeks Blush yesterday but I love it! It's a gorgeous cream blush and is sooo easy to apply and blend. Good job Bourjois!

Highlighter - I have a sample of the RMS Beauty Living Luminizer and it's seriously amazing. Perfect for a subtle highlight on the tops of the cheekbones. I'll be buying it in full size at some point.

Make-Up Brush - I'd probably go with the well loved Real Techniques Buffing Brush. It's just a really great brush for applying foundation or powder flawlessly.

Eyeliner - My favourite liquid liner is Lavera's Liquid Eyeliner. It has a really thin brush and is really easy to apply compared to other liquid liners. For pencil it's Jane Iredale's Eyeliner which I really love because I finally found an eyeliner I can use on my waterline without irritating my sensitive eyes!

Mascara - For me mascara is a two step thing as natural mascaras don't seem to perform too well by themselves. First I use Jane Iredale's PureLash Lash Extender and Conditioner which basically will give you the best voluminous and long eyelashes you've ever had! I'm currently using Green People Volumising Mascara over the top. It has good pigmentation and lasts most of the day without flaking or smudging.

Lip Balm - As a lip balm addict I have so many to choose from but I've narrowed it down to S.W. Basics Peppermint Lip Balm and Yes To Carrots Berry Lip Butter (reviewed here) Both are super moisturising and free from horrible ingredients. Definitely recommend!

Lipstick/Lip Gloss - My favourite lipstick at the moment is Benecos Lipstick in Peach (reviewed here). It's a lovely peach shade with a slight shimmer to it. Perfect for everyday wear.

Let me know if you decide to write a post for this! I took out a few of the categories by the way (primer, bronzer, eyebrow product, eyeshadow, lip liner and nail polish) as I don't use some of them or couldn't choose a favourite! Feel free to add them back in if you do the tag though :)

Do you use any of the products I mentioned?

  4. Wow, I love your blog! I've been interested in natural beauty products for about 7 years now and it's amazing to see that other people are too. Even better, as I've learned about some new products from this post. Lovely. Couldn't agree more about the UNE blusher too.
