Anastasia Brow Whiz | Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion | Kat Von D Tattoo Liner | Rimmel 107 | Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder
The term Holy Grail gets thrown about quite a lot in the blogging world. You often hear about 'Holy Grail' skincare or a new mascara which just NEEDS to be one of your 'Holy Grail' products. As someone who has only developed a love of beauty products in the past couple of years, I have never really considered anything in my collection really necessary, I could always replace it with something else. But, since developing my own routine and make up collection, there are definitely some products which I absolutely love which would be very difficult to replace (and I didn't know how else to describe them).
Eyebrows have been a massive deal in the past year or two and as mine are a bit wild and bushy (but not in the cute Cara Delevigne kind of way) I definitely need some sort of products to keep them looking good, eyebrows on fleek. The Anastasia Brow Whiz is a product which basically everyone loves and I definitely picked it up on the recommendation of many a beauty blogger but it really does do the job. The spoolie on one end tidies my brows up and makes them straight and then the waxy pencil on the other end is perfect for filling in any gaps.
Another blogger favourite which I picked up from the Sephora website when doing a mega order over Christmas is the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper. I love a black liquid eyeliner and feel a bit lost without a bit of a wing and this liner just does. not. budge. It is also incredibly easy to use and it the only liner pen I can use with my eyes open (like the proper beauty gurus do, eh).
Sticking with the eyes, since starting wear eyeshadow, I realised my eyelids are basically a pain in the arse and just crease anything I put on them. Since purchasing the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (which I first tried when I got a sample with the Naked 3 Palette) this has not been a problem at all. The primer is light weight and really easy to apply and then anything that goes on top stays there as long as you want it to! A great product if you find your eyeshadow going walkies half way through the day.
Unfortunately, I am yet to find a foundation which is perfect for my skin type and colour but the one thing that helps this is the Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder. A dusting of this makes any base look flawless and also helps your makeup stay on your face for much longer. I would keep some of this with me at all times if I hadn't already broken one in the bottom of a bag before (nightmare).
Finally is my all time favourite lipstick. This is most definitely a bold statement as I own way too many lipsticks (nearing 100, eek). The Rimmel 107 is a gorgeous deep, blue toned red in a matte finish which I could literally wear every day. You will see it in most of my posts and I would definitely give it a try if you haven't already.
I'd love to know which products are your absolute favourites so I can try them out for myself!
