Looking at my stash, I obviously love a lot of products (Dah!) and each one has easily been the flavour of the moment, but how many, in my entire collection, are really Holy Grail material? I found 4 that I will continue to buy over and over, for years to come. Just 4!! Shocking isn’t it!?! For instance I really like the “Too Faced Better Than Sex” mascara, it’s my favorite to date, but not yet Holy Grail status.
So here are the 4 lucky products that made it to the pinnacle, the Himalaya, the … (you get it, right?):
e.l.f High definition Undereye Setting Powder
A 3$ (or less) setting powder that surpassed all the high end ones I’ve tried over the years. To me, it works so beautifully at making sure my concealer doesn’t crease and stays put all day long. Unbeatable price for such a great product.
My Tip: Apply a large amount of powder after you applied your concealer (large is a figure of speech, considering that the container is quite small and you would like it to last a few months) and let it sit there awhile (for example, while you do your eyebrows). Dust it afterwards with a brush (in my case, I use the e.l.f Flawless Concealer brush).
MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly
Hallelujah for this formula!! Awesomeness!! Nothing, I mean nothing comes close to this product to ensure that you have the perfect base. It will then enable you to create the most beautiful eyeshadow look or you can just wear it alone. This product doesn’t crease, applies so smoothly, and covers any redness or small veins I have on my eyelids. I swear, I cannot live without this product. I will eventually venture into colourful Paint Pot (Rubenesque is on my wish list).
Annabelle Skin True foundation
I own a lot of different foundations but this is the one I have purchased again and again for the last 7 years I would say. This is my everyday, affordable product of choice and the one I use to mix with some other formulas that really don’t work that well for me. Skin true never broke me out and the result doesn’t look cakey whatsoever. Light coverage but yet very buildable. A true hidden gem !!!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Blonde
It took me a long time to really master the art of defining my eyebrows. It’s been trial and error and a LOOOOOT of practice. The Dipbrow Pomade makes it a breeze to create MY perfect eyebrows; this thing won’t budge. Paired with ABH #12 brush is just HEAVEN.
Confession: Now, even on days when I don’t really put makeup on (or just a little bit), I will do my eyebrows. I cannot believe it took me years to really conquer my fears of “eyebrowing” 😜👍.
I’m curious about your Holy Grail products !!!
