3 Products I Couldn't Live Without in High School

I was going through an old makeup case the other day and came across a bunch of things that I used all the time in high school. My taste and style has changed quite a bit since then, but it was fun to reminisce!

These are products that I bought multiples of and that I used quite a bit. The first is the Wet 'n' Wild MegaBrilliance Lip Gloss. I only have three left from then but I remember having a lot more! They're basically a gloss with a bunch of glitter in them. I wasn't into lipstick at all in high school and these seemed a good alternative, especially since I loved (and still love) all things shiny! They smell really good too.

The next this in the Yves Rocher Liquid Pearl Eyeshadow. The colours I have here are Daring Plum and Bronzed Green, and I used to have a gold one too but I used it all up! My mom ordered from Yves Rocher so I was always getting this and that to try. These are good bases for powder eyeshadow and they have super strong pigment on their own as well. The sponge applicator gets a bit streaky but you can fill that in and get a smooth coat of colour pretty easily.  (I would actually use these again if I could.)

And the last is the Annabelle Kohl Eyeliners. I was so obsessed with these! I basically thought the blue ones as the perfect blues and wore them with blue eyeshadow a lot.

As you can see I was much more colour oriented back then and focused only really on my eyes (and even then I had no idea how helpful mascara could be!). I'm trying to get back to that a little because I feel like I'm stuck in the neutrals rut!

What were your favourite products when you were younger? Do you still love them now? Let me know!

Swatches just for fun!
