Hi my loves!
Today I'm going to be talking about products I've used up and whether I enjoyed them and would I repurchase them in the future.
MAC Prep + Prime Fix +
Straight up I will definitely be repurchasing this (In fact I already have). I love Fix + so much it's great for my dry skin which has a tendency to look bit cakey. I spray this before and after I've applied my makeup. Before to add some moisture to the skin and help my foundation not look quite so matte and then after I've completely finished so that my makeup blends together and doesn't look powdery. The price point for this product does annoy me but I am yet to find another spray that I love as much as this one. I would definitely not classify this as a finishing spray by any means but if you have dry skin this would be great since it's very hydrating.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Moisturiser
This is one of those moisturiser that is a really hydrating water - gel formula, I find it very soothing on my skin and it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving you sticky and greasy feeling but your skin still feels hydrated. I feel like I've read that this is best suited for oily/combination skin but I love it for my dry skin. It claims to be suitable for sensitive skin which I agree with, since I've been using this moisturiser I haven't noticed that I've had any major break outs (just my normal ones that love to rear their ugly head every so often). This moisturiser has impressed me so much that I will definitely stock up on this when I'm next out and I also might try other products from the same collection.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Pink Grapefruit Facial Wash
I'm going to be honest that this caught my eye because it was pink (screw you packaging), but I have actually used up the whole bottle and I think I will be repurchasing. This facial wash does have a slight scent so if your sensitive to smells then this could irritate you, but I have dry skin which can be sensitive and this didn't break me out and it didn't dry my skin. I was able to use this every day and it was great at getting any last bits of makeup off my face.

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot - Painterly
I use this every single day (well days that I wear makeup). I love this for natural days since I use it to just disguise my veiny-ish eyelids and I love it for days when I want full glam since it's the best eyelid primer I've ever used. When I apply this my eyeshadow stays on all day! I have dry skin pretty much everywhere on my face but for some unknown reason my eyelids are extremely oily.. But thats all changed thanks to this beauty, seriously one of my holy grails and I will keep repurchasing forever (probably). The shade Painterly is best suited for people that have fair - medium-ish skin tones (MAC has a bunch of different shades). The way I find best to use this is to apply with a brush or finger then set with a face toned powder to take away any stickiness and to help eyeshadows blend more easily. These little pots last for a really long amount of time as well (like a year +).

MAC Brush Cleanser
Right so I'm not gonna say this is not great - because it is. You only need a really tiny amount and it will remove makeup from a brush and it doesn't leave the brush wet so you can pretty much use it again immediately. Butttt the problems that I had were I found the bottle to be really messy, I tried to quckly grab a small amount and I got like a waterfall - well it just got everywhere all over my hands and down the bottle itself. Not what I was expecting for a quick spot clean, I much prefer using a brush cleanser that is a spray since it's quicker and much less messy in my opinion. I also think you can find products that are just as good but for half the price. (Love the one from Makeup Revolution) Also I just want to add that nothing can replace actually wetting a brush and washing it properly so for me I think I would not repurchase this.
