What is in my beauty bag? Part 2 Make-up

All my makeup stash, don't judge!
Wassup, wassup

Yeah I have had too much caffeine,I hope you are having a great evening and a good start to your week! I hope this part 2 won't be as lengthy as part 1 I will try my best. Let's GO...

I am going to write about the products according to brands so don't follow the numbers on this picture in chronological order to the words.

Catrice
1.Catrice Prime and Fine Smoothing Refiner. I don't have much to say about this primer. If you have oily skin it is not for you. I was looking for something price friendly and yeah bad choice. I cannot really give it a fair rating.

L.A. Girl
2.LA Girl Pro Powder HD Powder. I think I like this setting powder but I found that it did not last long for me, by mid day I would be shining bright like a diamond. Maybe if I had a good primer then I would say something else, you also have to be good at blending to look less spooky with this one.

Essence
As you can see most of the products that I have on there are from this brand, because it is affordable and does not disappoint most of the time.
3.Essence Liquid ink Eyeliner. This is for that perfect winged eye cat look that everyone is trying to perfect. Somebody please tell me what am I doing wrong cause after lunch one of the wings would be gone. I know I have to stop touching my face, I thought it would be resistant.I used a Wet 'N Wild one before and I never had a problem with that. I like it , it was affordable, make do with what you have until you can afford everything MAC right?
17.Essence All about Matt! High covering concealer 10 matt beige. I use this as a primer and it has worked better than the other primer,makes my foundation last a bit longer and as light that colour may be I never had trouble covering it up with foundation. I am still on the search though! Again great price!
18.Essence CoverStick 50 Matt Caramel. This is my 2nd stick as I lost the 1st one. I like it because it matches my skin tone so well. It does not last but hey, that matt look on a hot day yeah it's ok! I notice that it fades quickly as well. I use this as a concealer or as a foundation. Gotta love Essence for newbies like me with make-up, there's room for growth here.
21.Essence Lip Liner 11 in the Nude. This could be something I am a little disappointed about, the colour does not do anything on my lips it disappears like vaseline. I've had to put a bit of foundation on them and then something would happen.It could be my fault for picking it in that colour. 
22.Essence Kajal Pencil 01 Black. I love black eyeliners, I probably have others that did not make the cut for this post. I always line my eyes and this one here is very smooth. It does not stay all day though, so re-application is necessary!

Shiseido
I am a little afraid writing about these cause they were given to me and I used them like one or twice *side eye*.
Shiseido Lipstick (4(Perfect Rouge RD304) & 5(PK249 possibly)) don’t know the colours, had to Google this just for you. I like their texture they are very moisturising and the pink one had a strong pigment. However even with such a great brand there's still something missing, they did not last.

Almay
These came with a bag which was a gift as well that  I am still using lol. I have got to say this brand is good for the little attention it is getting.
6.Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick Light/Medium Nude (finished). I realised that this was finished when I was checking them for this post and I was a bit sad. So I have to get another one. It feels like butter and smells like vanilla I think but it is amazing. I will get a shade more closer to my skin tone with the next one.This is for when I don't want colour but I don't want Vaseline either, you get?
23.Almay One Coat Triple Effect Mascara. I have to buy this one too. Yes! This brand has got me , the mascara did wonders for my tiny lashes and I am no fan of mascara but I like this one that much. I can't say more.
24.Almay eyeliner 205 black retractable. I love this, I used it more than all my pencils because it is retractable and it sits nicely,my other pencils are probably giving it a look, I can do my water-line on the top lid. I am sold!

Wet 'N Wild
7.Wet ‘N Wild Lipstick Mocha-licious (finished),8. Wet ‘N Wild Lipstick Cinnamon Spice. I don't know which is which! The only thing I have against this brand's lipstick is the weak, fragile packaging. See how terrible they look? The other one's bullet fell off, yes! I love mocha-licious, it is the perfect nude for me, blends right with the face. 
Cinnamon Spice gave me a surprise! I expected a toned down look but it has a reddish look like most people said! I like their finish but the application is hard, you have to smear it on.

Yardley
9.Yardley Colour Rush Runway Ruby. I took this from my mom many moons ago and still holding on onto it until I find a replacement, the line got discontinued! I have not seen it ever since! Please help.
New Avon Matte Lippie,
 love love love
19.Yardley eye shadow pallet. This was my graduation make-up kit purchase with a foundation etc,you know how the sales people do. So I kept it ever since, I do play with a smoky every now and then. 

MAC 
12.MAC Matte Lipstick Smoked Purple (what’s a make-up stash without MAC?) and MAC Lip Pencil Current (Not in the picture) the guy sold me the liner with the lippie I could not resist. But this brand is expensive, hai! I can't, these two will have to last me a lifetime lol. The lipstick lasts and it looks good on, but it is drying! The liner is amazing, I use it with other lippies I have, it just glides on.

Dischem
13.Calamine Lotion (Don’t ask). Calamine?? lol, I can just imagine the look on your face right this moment. Yes calamine lotion. I stumbled upon an artist and she shared a pot of gold with me right here. I tried it once and was hooked, it works like a charm, go try it! Another benefit is that my skin feels awesome when I wash the make-up off.

Rimmel
14.Rimmel London Lasting Finish Foundation Almond. I bought this when I was pregnant it seemed to match my then shade, now I lighten it up a little with my concealer and still look good. It is even better with the calamine as a base and lasts all day!

Signature Cosmetics
15.Signature Cosmetics Stick Foundation Caramel. I normally go to this shop to check sales and their cheap perfume dupes for those dry days. I saw this and thought why not, well I should have not lol. It makes me look like a dorito and shiny. If I did not have to severely adjust the shade otherwise I think it would be good.
20.Signature Cosmetics Eye and Lip Pencil Dark Chocolate. Well my daughter broke off the smudge side of the pencil. I bought this for my brows and it is doing them well, it fills in the gaps and blends nicely.


AVON
I did this on purpose I had to save this for last, you know what they say!
11.Avon Ultra Colour Lipstick Buttered Rum. I am a little disappointed with the colour of this lipstick, I wish they had real live samples and not those books!
10.Avon True Colour Perfectly Matte Lipstick Wild Cherry. Now speak about love at first site, this is the best thing since MAC! Don't bite me please, if you can afford MAC great, but some of us can get 4 of these beauties with one MAC lipstick price and still flourish! I used this lippie with the MAC liner and they matched. It glides on smoothly and it is matte, does not dry lips, smells lovely. I just re-apply it just nje sometimes! I even got myself two more in the colours Red Supreme and Superb Wine which happened to be the one I fell in love with at the first place. This I most definitely recommend.

This was long, I tried to be as on point as possible. I hope you enjoy it and have a goodest night or day! Until next post, God bless...
