Empties & Products I have used up | House of Height

Hi loves! I hope your week is going well! So I promised on my last video on my channel that I would provide pics, links and a more in depth review of the products I have recently used up! If you have missed the video then you can catch up now and hit play below! (I would love if you hit the Subscribe button too! ;-))

So I wanted to focus on some of the products seen below:

I have another post on the Elegant Touch Nails which can be found here.

So I am obsessed with Mac Studio Fix Foundation. I am in shade/colour NC20 (or NC25 depending on the time of year). As you tell from the empties below this is how addicted I am to this foundation. it has buildable coverage, It gives a flawless complexion especially if used with a primer and contains SPF. It has a matte finish so this is perfect if you have an oily complexion. This is the first foundation I have that holds perfect all day for me without having to powder. You can purchase this foundation here. I love the fact you can purchase a pump and reuse this. It means you can get to all the product without wasting it unlike some liquid foundations where you cannot remove the pump. Def a huge thumbs up for me and this will always be in my makeup collection.

Another foundation that I wanted to comment on due to its affordability is the Seventeen Miracle Matte foundation. This is a high street/drugstore foundation and for £5.99 a great buy! I did like this buildable coverage foundation but as I have a fairly oily T-zone I didn't feel this was matte enough for me and I did need to apply powder over this. It states it is 16 hour but for this to be used to its best I would have to apply powder to keep the shine at bay! I felt also that it did not blend in easily to my face as other high street brands do however for the affordability I would still repurchase this product as you can see I have used most of the product.

My fave concealer at the mo is the Benefit Boi-ing concealer. I use shade 01 which is the lightest and it acts as a great highlighter when contouring too! It is amazing at covering up blemishes and my dark circles. I find a lot of concealers crease for me and this is one of the first that I feel stays put all day! It is a small pot but contains a lot of product! I have already hit pan on my current Boi-ing and am def running out the door to purchase another. The texture is lovely and creamy and blends well! I love using this with my fingers and a beauty blender. It is listed as industrial strength which I can agree with due to the thick consistency of this product. Not everyone may like this because of that but if you really want to cover up acne scars or dark circles this is perfect! Pick it up here.

On to the bronzers! I love to have a lot of different bronzers in my makeup collection! This Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzing Powder is one that everyone should try! I love the packaging it is so glam and is one of the ranges cult products. It now comes with a highlighter for quick contouring! A bronzer is great to warm your complexion and add that little colour. If applied in the right areas when contouring this can define your face and have the perfect cheek bones! (Unfortunately not all of us are born with them so hey ho at least we can fake them right?!) Find it here.

Since finding Hoola bu Benefit I am in love and I will def always have to have a back up of this. Its the perfect bronzer for me as it gives a matte finish and none of that fake orange tangoed look! Its amazing for contouring due to the fact it is matte and provides that all year sun kissed feel. It is great for day or night and works well with all skin tones! It comes with a mirror and little brush for when you are on the go. I must recommend you pick this up now here.

These quad eye-shadow kits from GOSH are amazing! I love how you can create a whole eye look with one kit. This one pictured is the green shades and you can build up a whole smokey eye look including highlight with this one kit. They are so well priced for the what you get at £7.99 and the shades are highly pigmented. I think these are perfect if you are just starting out with makeup to build your collection or for travel purposes so you have more than one shade to choose! Whichever the scenario these are a star buy! Buy them here

Another Benefit product guys but honestly I just love their products so so much! This is the famous mascara they're real! I'm sure you love it as much as me but this gives instant wow lashes! It does all it says on the tin......lengthens, curls, thickens and seperates my lashes! Who needs falsies hey! I love trying different mascaras but this simply to me worked wonders for my lashes. A def must have for the makeup bag ladies! Grab it here
