My Holy Grail Beauty Products


I had a request to share the beauty products that I'm currently using on heavy rotation. When I find a product that works for me I stick with it until I find something better to take it's place. I've been using some of my favourite beauty products for years!  Today I will be sharing all my favourite beauty products from makeup to skin care that I've bought and reused time and time again! 


Make Up Forever HD Foundation & Full Cover Concealer
Make Up Forever has been my go-to foundation and cover-up brand for the past few years. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to breakouts, this is brand is perfect for you! It also provides the just the right amount of coverage without looking cakey. 

Purchase concealer here and cover-up here



Urban Decay Primer Potion
If you don't own an eyeshadow or makeup primer, you don't know what you're missing! I wrote a post about this primer 3 years ago and I'm still loving it just as much today. Has your eyeshadow ever creased or faded halfway though the day? This primer completely eliminates that problem! There have even been days that I've worn leftover eyeshadow from the day to my gym class, and it's still intact afterwards! 

Purchase primer here


Vitamin E
I've been using this serum as a spot treatment for breakouts and stubborn zits. You would think the oil would cause more breakouts but surprisingly it has the opposite effect! I also rub the serum on areas of my skin that are feeling very dry and leave it on overnight. I'm thinking of starting some oral Vitamin E as I've seen the positive effects it has on my skin!

Purchase it at your local drug store.

Covergirl's Lashblash Volume Mascara
This is a drugstore mascara with the quality of a beauty store mascara. Ever since I've discovered Lashblash by Covergirl, I haven't spent more than $9 on my mascara! This mascara lengthens without clumping and looks very natural.

Purchase it at your local drug store.


E.L.F. Eyebrow Kit
When it comes to brows, I've tried it all but I always end up going back to my 3 dollar E.L.F brow duo, yes it's 3 dollars! I typically start shading my brows with this product and end with the NYX Sculpt & Highlight pencil. I don't feel that this product stands well alone but in combo with the NYX pencil, you can perfect your brows! Oh and the price of the two of them together doesn't even equate to the price of one brow product that you would purchase at Sephora or your local beauty store!

Purchase brow kit here

NYX Sculpt & Highlight Brow Pencil
I can work out and wipe my eyebrows from sweat and still have them intact! Definitely a good product for anyone wanting to lengthen or change the shape of their existing eyebrows. I have really short eyebrows so it really helps me to achieve the perfect brow!

Purchase brow pencil here

NYX Matte Liquid Liner 
I've never been the best at perfecting the winged liner but with this liner, it's possible! It glides on so easily and my eyes almost always look symmetrical when I create a cat eye (I mean it's never going to be perfectly symmetrical =P)

Purchase NYX liner here

NYX Lingerie Lipstick 
If you're looking for a matte lipstick that doesn't budge and looks perfect every time, this is the lipstick for you! Also surprisingly, for a matte lipstick it doesn't make you lips feel dry when using it or afterwards!

Purchase lipstick here


NARS Madly Blush
I know everyone loves the 'Orgasm' blush by Nars but I prefer 'Madly' because it's a good combination between a blush and bronzer. Perfect for everyday use and sensitive skin!

Purchase blush here

Laura Mercier Loose Powder 
I have combination skin so it's important for me to use a setting powder over my makeup to prevent me from getting too shiny. This mini loose powder set by Laura Mercier fits easily in any clutch and sets your makeup perfectly!

Purchase powder here

  17. I love the Urban Decay primer potion too! It is on the expensive side but it really works. I haven't tried another blush shade from Nars aside from Orgasm but that one you showed looked nice. It looks subtle with just the right color. Thanks for sharing! :)
