Forgotten Favourites #1.

Since we're all beauty bloggers here, I'm sure you, just like me have a ton of products. I love mostly everything I have but something new always comes along and it gets pushed aside whilst I make room for the new lipstick or mascara in my life.

I know a lot of people do 'Project 10 Pan' but I don't buy a lot any more so I don't feel the need to ban myself.

Instead I'm going to pull out old products I've been neglecting of late and start using them more regularly again.

 M.A.C Liquidlast Liner - Blue Herizon.

I bought this on my first trip to a M.A.C counter and was instantly drawn to the brightness of the colour. The formula is an odd one though, I must say. I can't explain it but it's quite tacky.

Here's what M.A.C says:
A rich colour liquid eye liner that combines long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake precision line. Goes on effortlessly. Applies with its own brush to draw a perfectly defined line. Available in a wide range of classic and trend shades.

Oh M.A.C, why you lie? It doesn't come in the array of colours it did any more. They discontinued all bar Point Black and I really don't understand why. This has an overall 4.7/5 rating on the website.

There is a few issues like it takes a while to try and if you open your lids up too quick and you get that annoying mark on your lid, you all know what I mean, it will not budge! But this eyeliner is amazing, seriously, so good. It does not budge and I have a hard time getting it off at the end of the day.

Such a beautiful colour though. I usually tend to wear this when I want a snazzy eye but really can't be bothered with too much colour. Effortless.

 M.A.C Lipstick - Girl About Town.

I Back-2-M.A.C'd for this back in December now and although it might be a touch to bold for regular daytime wear, I still wear it on occasion.

I love it, it's such a wonderful, long lasting colour that leaves a slight stain behind so your lips stay coloured long after the lipstick leaves your lips. Some people hate that but I personally think it helps hide fading so much.

 Illamasqua Cream Pigment - Delirium.

I received this as part of the Toxic Nature collection and at first, was really underwhelmed with the colour. Illamasqua describe it as a 'rose taupe with a matte finish' and I personally don't find myself levitating towards those colours, let alone wearing them. So it's been sitting in my dressing table unloved ever since.

Only last week, I decided I wanted to try my hand at contouring. I've been too scared to before (hence not having a colour to do so) because I feel it would look odd on such a chubby face.

Non the less I've been using it as a light contour whenever I've one my makeup since and I love it. Hollow would probably be a better suited colour but Josh (Petrilude) always insists on using what you have, so I'm doing just that.

Here they all are on my visage:
