5 Throwback Makeup Products

I was going through my makeup collection the other day, and spotted an old MAC foundation that I haven’t used for ages and it got me looking for more old school products I haven’t used in a while!



So first up, my MAC Pro Longwear Foundation. This was my first high end foundation, and to be honest one of my only high end foundations. I felt so cool going and getting this with my Christmas money, haaaaa. It served me well anyway, I’m not quite sure the shade is quite right but heyho. Its a great mid to full coverage foundation, but I doubt I’d buy it again as I think theres better foundations at that price point and even cheaper ones. Secondly, is my beloved Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. This was my first high end eyeshadow palette I owned, and I got it for my 16th birthday. I still love it to this day, full of beautiful pinks and nudes, its a great everyday palette!


The first bronzer I ever picked up, was the Soap & Glory Solar Powder. As you can see, I have it in the original cardboard packaging, which they’ve now changed to plastic, thankfully. This was my go-to bronzer for so long, and I still love it, although I seem to have neglected it for my Benefit Hoola. A highlighter that honestly, I never really used was the Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder. I didn’t get along with this to be honest, as pretty as it looks it just sits at the back of my drawer. And finally, a blush I’m sure everybody will remember, the Sleek Rose Gold blush. Such a great blush, with gorgeous gold flecks in it, you can’t go wrong with this. Such a great drugstore blush!
