Multi-Purpose Makeup Products (and Why Customers Love Them)
Discover the best Code8 beauty buys that can enhance your features in more ways than one.
Whether you’re trying to save handbag space or want to reign in your spending habits, multi-purpose beauty products can save you both time and money.
Here at Code8 we’re big fans of hard-working formulas that you can wear in different ways, so we’ve decided to create a list of our favourite multi-purpose makeup products. Scroll down to find the six top picks that our customers love experimenting with.
5Secs Express Lip and Cheek Colour
This chunky crayon is a lip balm and lipstick hybrid, and is an easy way to add a tint to your cheeks, a hydrating wash of colour on your lips or a glossy finish to eyelids. Ultra nourishing and hydrating, Code8 fans and Lisa Armstrong from the Telegraph love them because they supply ‘intense hydration with amazingly long-lasting hints of sheer colour’.
They’re super easy to blend and can be built up for more intense colour should you wish. Apply it straight from the crayon or take the colour onto your fingertips and dab where needed.
Bronze Summer Glow Powder
The next multi-purpose makeup product on our list is the Code8 Bronzer. You can use this finely milled powder made with cocoa seed butter as a classic bronzer by blending it on your nose, hairline and forehead for a sculpted, sun-kissed look. But you can also use it on your eyes for a striking shadow.
Applied with a blending brush, it’s the perfect shimmering tan shade. It’s long-lasting and buildable, making it one of the most beloved multi-use makeup products in our range.
Highlight HD Palette
Our award-winning Highlight HD Palette in ‘Between Two Women’ is a duo of rose gold and bronze coloured powders that are packed with pre-baked pearls, olive oil, macadamia oil and white tea extract.
You can use an angled brush to apply this wonderful multi-use product to your cheekbones, cupid’s bow and brow bone as a classic highlighter or spray a brush with water and apply it wet as a shiny eyeshadow.
This is the first 3-in-1 blush set on the market that is made using revolutionary Knead Technology, so it’s lightweight, easy to blend and silky to the touch.
Swirl your brush into the compact and add a pop of colour to the apples of your cheek, or make like Code 8 fans and rub your ring finger into the pigment and apply it straight to your eyelids for an on-trend pink eyeshadow. This product can be used wet or dry, and with three shades to choose from the amount of looks you can create is endless.
Matte Velour Lipstick
As well as being a lovely velvety lipstick, this long-wear product can also be used on the eyelids for a matte finish. Its rich pigment and sunflower seed-infused formula is ideal for enhancing your pout or for adding a unique texture to your lids. Buildable and never drying, it spreads easily and never settles in fine lines, wherever on your face you choose to apply it.
Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette
Our last but by no means least favourite multi-purpose makeup product is the Iconoclast Eyeshadow Palette. Winner of the 2020 Beauty Bible Silver award for Best Powder Eyeshadow, this range of palettes is a firm customer favourite. Made using revolutionary Knead Technology, they’re long-lasting, super blendable and highly pigmented and can be used to create an infinite number of makeup looks. Alongside using it on the lids, you can also wet the shades and take an angled brush to apply it as eyeliner or brush the brown hues through your brows to add definition.
