5 minute face...

Hi Cupcakes, I haven't done a beauty related post in a while so thought I'd pop one out today! Ha!
This morning I was running late, I haven't been sleeping well at all recently so left it to the very last minute before I rushed out of bed, I noticed I finished my makeup in about 5 minutes and knew what items to pick out without even looking!
So these are my "go to" gems when I'm in a rush or just feeling the "basic" look...

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection foundation shade 4 Natural Beige, Love this, will definitely repurchase when it's run out! VICHY High coverage concealer, love this also! NYC Smooth skin face powder Naturally beige, I'm really impressed with this! & QVS powder brush from Superdrug.

NYC showtime mascara in black, this is great for bottom lashes but not enough for full lashes at the top which I like, Maybelline colossal in black, didn't like this, it smudged easily on me and dries up quickly! Will not be buying another but I'm using the last of it to go over the top lashes.

NYC lip stain in 498 berry long time love, love, love this! It smells like apples, gives a gorgeous colour, the exact colour of the pen! doesn't last the 16hr it says it does but I will repurchase again!
Rimmel mousse bronzer in 003 deep glow...I'm sure you all know how much I love this by now! :)

So there you have it! My 5minute makeup you find yourselves grabbing the same items when your rushed?

In other news I am making my rocky road bars this weekend so stick around for those yummy
treats as I will be sharing the recipe!

Have a great Friday night! :)


  1. All seem like really good products :). When i'm in a hurry i always wish to take just 5 minutes but i guess that it's not in my nature to do my make-up quickly.

  2. These all look great although I wish I could take 5 mins to do my make-up!! x

  3. yes, I always reach for the same things when I'm running out the door, it's always good to have your set basics right? I'm liking that lip stain, may have to look for it next time I'm at the drugstore!

  4. @Yona- I like them all but will not repurchase the mascara. It'ss funny during the week I can do it quickly but for a night out I take all day! :)

    @Stefany- I never used to but I don't seem to sleep very well so I've had to force myself lol x

    @Tiffany- Yes I agree! I highly recommend the lipstain! It's a gorgeous colour. x
