Unsung Heros

There are a few products that lurk in every single person's bathroom cabinet, makeup bag, vanity case... Wherever you keep them and whatever they are, you probably use them every day without even thinking about it. But where would you be if they didn't exist...?


Too Faced Shadow Insurance & MAC Face & Body transform my makeup on a daily basis. Without Shadow Insurance, my eyeshadow would have disappeared by 10 am & my brow bones would be covered in mascara smudges.

Without MAC F&B, I would NEVER have a foundation that matched my skin tone!

Without my Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, I would have downward facing eyelashes & would look like Miss Piggy!

Without Bioderma Crealine H2O, I would probably still be hopping about from cleanser to cleanser, on the hunt for the Holy Grail.


Without Dior Creme De Rose Lip Balm, I would have horrible cracked lips!


What are the unsung heros in your makeup bag?


  1. Great post. I must try the shadow insurance xx

  2. This is a great post, totally agree about Bioderma and Shu Uemura curlers :) I'm hoping to try F&B soon!

  3. my shu cleansing oils because after a night out with lots of make up and contact lenses nothing...and i mean nothing else will shift my eyeliner. my rimmel eyeliner that is by far the best i've ever used. i've flirted with various gels, but I've been using this one for ooo 7 years now in different incarnations and I always always come back to it. My stilla powder in shade "A" because without my forehead would be akin to most mirrors.

  4. I am so looking for to try the Bioderma product but here in Spain is kind of hard to find it! thanks for sharing
