Christmas Collab #2: Products that have stood the test of time

It's time for my second collab today and this one is with Olivia from the blog Describe beauty and we are going to talk about the products in our makeup bags that have become forever favourites and even as our collections grow, these products never get forgotten.
So the first makeup product I have is the MUA pressed powder in shade 3. I can't even tell you how long I've been using this powder, it feels like I've been using it forever. I never see much about this powder but I don't know why, it's certainly a staple in my makeup. I just use a big fluffy brush to apply it all over my face to set my makeup and it lasts all day. It also isn't translucent so it does give some colour to your face as well which I really like.
Moving on to eye products now, my forever favourite product is the Maxfactor masterpiece high definition mascara. I first got to using this a long time ago because it was my mums favourite mascara and although I don't use it everyday it's the one I go for when I want lengthened lashes. It doesn't give to much volume but it gives lengthening and I love the way it makes my lashes work. I always have to have one of these mascaras with me as I have yet to find any that top it.
Now onto lip products, first off is the Maybeline baby lips in cherry me. Now I'm pretty sure everyone and their mum loves babylips but I'm just gonna put it out there that I do too. Although I don't reach for this as often as I used to because I'm more of a lipsticks girl, this will always be a firm favourite of mine as I love how moisturising it feels and the slight tint it gives my lips. I must have had this at least two years which I'm sure is ridiculously bad but I love it a lot. The other lip product I've had in my collection for as long as I can remember is the Soap and glory sexy mother pucker gloss stick in Nudist. This is another great one for if you want still want some colour on your lips but for them to still feel moisturised. This shade is the perfect nude as well! You can tell I've had this a while though as they've redone the packaging of these but mine is still the old one.

I would love to know products have stood the test of time in your makeup collection and make sure you go and check out Olivia's version of this over on her blog which I will link HERE. Olivia is a makeup obsessed beauty blogger who uploads Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
