My Most Repurchased Makeup Products of All Time

When it comes to favourites, a good indicator that you really love a beauty product is when you use it up entirely and then buy it again (and again!). I had an idea to do a post about the products I have repurchased the most. When I thought about it, I came up with a  list of my 12 most repurchased products of all time, which I could also have called the makeup products I am most obsessed with. So, in no particular order, here they are:

Bare Minerals Original Foundation in Fair

Bare Minerals Original Foundation in “Fair”

Bare Minerals Original Foundation SPF 15 ($35.00 CAD): I’ve been using this powder foundation for over 10 years. Its a great match for fair skin, and when my skin was really break-out prone this was the only foundation that wouldn’t exacerbate the issue. It never irritated my sensitive skin.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer

Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer

Too Faced Shadow Insurance eyeshadow primer ($24.00 CAD): I prefer the Too Faced over the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I find it creamier and smoother and it lasts longer on me. When I discovered eyeshadow primer it literally changed my (makeup) life!

Benefit Benetint Cheek Stain

Benefit Benetint Cheek Stain

Benefit Benetint Cheek Stain ($36.00 CAD): This is another product that I’ve been using for at least 10 years, maybe more. I use it everyday under my foundation. It gives fair skin a beautiful, glowing from within flush. I couldn’t even guess how many of these little bottles I’ve gone through!

MAC Patina eyeshadow

MAC “Patina” eyeshadow

MAC Omega eyeshadow

MAC “Omega” eyeshadow

MAC Brule eyeshadow

MAC “Brule” eyeshadow

Three of my most repurchased products are MAC eyeshadows in Patina, Omega and Brule ($12-19.00 CAD). I have hit pan on all three multiple times.

Laura Mercier Secret Concealer

Laura Mercier Secret Concealer

Laura Mercier Secret Concealer ($31.00 CAD): This is my absolute favourite under eye concealer. I used to buy “1 – for light complexions with pink undertones” and then Sephora started carrying “0.5 – light beige for fair to light complexions” which I like even better.

Make Up For Ever HD Powder

Make Up For Ever HD Powder

Make Up For Ever HD Microfinish Powder ($22.00 CAD for 0.14oz size): I use this to set my under eye concealer. I always buy the mini size because you only need to use a tiny amount. The mini size lasts forever and I’ve still gone through three or four of these.

NYX Angel blush

NYX “Angel” blush

NYX powder blush in “Angel” ($6.00 CAD): This is my favourite blush ever! It lasts longer on me than any other powder blush (Nars, MAC, Tarte…) and is the prettiest shade on fair skin. The blushes are small though, so I go through them quickly. I’ve gone through a lot of these.

MAC Powersurge Eye Kohl

MAC “Powersurge” Eye Kohl

Swatch: MAC Powersurge Eye Kohl

Swatch: MAC “Powersurge” Eye Kohl

MAC Eye Kohl in “Powersurge” ($19.00 CAD): This flattering, wearable “bronzed-brown with golden shimmer” is the perfect eyeliner. I first heard about it from Pixiwoo. I use it on my lower waterline and smudge it out on my lower lash line. I literally have like 3 back-ups of this and I’m also constantly buying it for other people so they can discover the eyeliner goodness that is Powersurge!

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara ($12.00 CAD): I have been loving this little mascara since it debuted. I’d never worn mascara on my lower lashes because I could never find anything that would stay on there. This doesn’t smudge or flake and stays put until I wash it off. And the little brush is so cute!

Blistex Daily Conditioning Treatment SPF 20

Blistex Daily Conditioning Treatment SPF 20

Blistex Daily Conditioning Treatment SPF 20 in the peach pot ($3.99 CAD): I’ve been using this lipbalm since I was in highschool, but I won’t say how long ago that was, lol. I suspect that if I could stack up all of the empty pots of this lipbalm that I’ve gone through, the tower might reach the moon.

I’d like to tag anyone reading this to do this post too! I’d love to hear about your most repurchased products.

Thanks for stopping by! ❤

Love,

Nerdy Librarian Girl

  15. It’s always the best kind of posts when someone talks about long term product favorites. I should try the Too Faced primer, I’ve always used the Urban Decay because somehow I always have a deluxe sample (never actually bought one, lol) but the one I have is almost out and I’m thinking of trying something new. 🙂

    Nice list! Powersurge looks really pretty 🙂
    I’ve been using Benetint for about 8 years, and I’ve only gone through 2 bottles…I love it, but guess its because I use the others as well that I don’t go through it often enough. But as my first stain, it is my favourite
