If I could only have one

Hi Beauts.

Recently I was looking and watching (not stalking) MissBudgetBeauty's videos and came across a video called 'If I could only have one' Basically it's a TAG in which you can only choose one product from each category: Foundation, concealer and so on. I really enjoyed it so thought I'd do a little blog post and share what I chose :) 

Let's start with face

Foundation - Revlon colorstay. This is the only foundation I find that works with my skin type, lasts pretty much all day and has great coverage
Concealer - Collection lasting perfection. I think every make up lover has this in their collection. Great consistency, brightens under the eyes and doesn't crease
Powder - SEVENTEEN Miracle matte pressed powder. This literally keeps me shine free all day, doesn't cake up or oxidise and adds a little extra coverage too
Blush - No7 Candy pink. I chose this because I think it's the perfect pink and looks great with any lipstick or eye colour that I wear
Highlight - Collection  shimmer and shade 'Just peachy' As you can tell this is well loved. I use this almost every day as a cheekbone highlight and sometimes on my brow bone. It's an off white colour and matte, which I prefer

Eyes and Lips

Eyeshadow - MUA Shade 20. I chose a matte black as you can do a few looks with it: cut crease, winged liner, smokey eye, blend it out to a dark grey. That and I'm all for dark eyes. This is the blackest black that I own, is SO pigmented and blends easily
Liner - MUA Extreme felt liner. This is my everyday, Holy grail liner. It's pigmented and easy to use, and once it's on it ain't going anywhere! My full review is here
Mascara - Clinique High Impact. I need to repurchase this but I have way too many mascaras on the go at the minute. It lengthens, separates and gives volume and I love it!
Lip liner - Prestige 'Silk'. This is (I hate to say it) my lips but better and goes with literally every lipstick I own. I even wear this  all over my lips and a gloss over the top sometimes too
Lipstick - YSL Rouge Volupte '01' I had to choose this because it's the perfect pinky nude and it's so moisturising. Not to mention it has the prettiest packaging. I have a review here
Lipgloss - NYX mega shine. I have a full review on these glosses. They're not sticky , the coloured shades are so pigmented and they last longer than any other gloss I own

Well that's what I chose, what would you pick?
