I’ve never shared with you my top 10 most-loved makeup products. I love reading/watching other beauty lover’s favorites, so thought it’d join in the fun. 🙂
These are in no particular order. They’re just the top ten products that I’ve been absolutely loving recently!
1. Lorac Behind the Scenes Eye Primer
I’ve raved about this for a while, and if you follow me on Instagram than you see this primer in every face of the day post. I tried several drugstore eyeprimers before I received this with my Lorac Unzipped palette. All the other primers worked, to some degree, but none of them ever held up for a whole day. This primer, on the other hand, holds up all day — and then some! Whenever I use this, my shadows always look just as good by the end of the night. No fading, no creasing, and the color just as vibrant as when I first applied it. Love it! 🙂
2. Physicians Formula Matte Collection Eyeshadow Quad
I just recently posted my review for this Classic Canyon quad, so I won’t go into too much detail. Just know that this is the best drugstore matte palette I’ve ever seen or tried and I love it. It blends like a dream and stays pigmented all day. Read my review for more details.
3. Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner
I’ve been using this for about 6 months now, and I really love the results I get from it. It’s very creamy and a pigmented, matte black. It lasts all day on my lids. It will rub off if you try, but since I use it on my lids (which I never rub) I don’t have to worry about that. It lasts a long time! I don’t think I’ve even hit the halfway mark with it yet!
4. Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Foundation Primer
As you can see, I only have a deluxe size of this product, but I love it. It’s a lifesaver when my face gets really dry. Applying this before my foundation helps to hydrate my skin and keep it from looking flaky throughout the day. It’s a liquidy primer — not like water, but almost as thin and cool. I haven’t taken the plunge to buy the full size…yet. 🙂
5. Rimmel London ScandalEyes
When I reach for a black eyeliner to line my eyes, I like them to be really pigmented and dark. Rimmel’s ScandalEyes works perfectly for that. It’s pigmented, creamy and stays very well in my waterline. I prefer this liner over Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Zero — I personally think it’s way more pigmented.
6. Lorac Pro Palette
This one shouldn’t be too much of a surprise. Lorac always has such buttery-soft shadows. A few months ago I was given this palette has a gift and I’ve been loving it ever since. All the colors in this palette are incredibly pigmented, soft, and just absolutely beautiful! 🙂
7. Maybelline Fit Me! Concealer
I’ve tried several concealers — both high-end and drugstore — and none of them have worked for me very well. But this concealer really is amazing. It looks great under my eye, and also amazing concealing any acne marks. The consistency is very creamy and thick, but blends out beautifully. I haven’t had this for long, but it’s quickly replaced all other concealers I own.
8. Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation
I just posted my review for this foundation earlier this week, so please check that out if you are interested. In short, if you want a foundation that is buildable and can give you either a light or heavy coverage, this is definitely the foundation to look into. I’ve been using it for about a year now — on my second bottle — and been loving it.
9. NYX Butter Lipstick
I purchased this on a whim, wanting to try out some of NYX’s lip products. I personally like nude pinks for my lips, so this color (BLS17 Pops) looked right up my alley. And I was right. It looks great on my, feels super smooth, and is nice and pigmented. It’s the perfect color to wear on an every-day occasion.
10. Airspun Loose Face Powder
I purchased this product last year during CVS’ end-of-the-year beauty sale. It was marked 75% off, and I’d heard Tati at Glam Life Guru rave about it several times before that. I am really glad I picked it up! Whenever I want to set my makeup without wanting anymore coverage, this is the powder I grab for. I definitely recommend you try it out. You won’t be disappointed!
Anna @ The Beauty Section says
Great products! I have a full post on the NYX Butter Lipsticks and the Coty Airspun Powder, those are definitely some of my faves too! 🙂
Anna – Yeah, that powder is really great. I like that I can use it to set my foundation without having to worry about my face looking cakey or anything.
I haven't tried any other colors from the NYX Butter Lipstick line, but if you're following me on Instagram you've probably seen that I've added several new ones to my makeup collection. So far, I'm loving NYX's lip products!
Amanda - Life With Grace says
Love those products! I've been wanting to try out some primers!
Amanda – I'm really wanting to purchase a full-size of the Smashbox primer. I love using it! 🙂
