My Holy Grail Makeup Products

My Holy Grail Makeup Products
After completing a makeup declutter a few days ago, I thought now would be the perfect time to share my Holy Grail makeup products. These makeup products are ones I can’t live without, and ones that I gravitate towards a lot. I’ve noticed my love of some of these products because of the project pan I’ve been doing. Since I haven’t bought any new makeup in over 6 months, it has allowed me to see what products I actually do love, and want to continue using and buying.

My Holy Grail makeup includes:
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This mascara is the best I’ve ever tried. It gives me long and lifted lashes that don’t flake. I don’t buy the waterproof version because I find this one is very resistant to water already.
MAC matte lipstick in Diva
Diva has been a favourite of mine since I purchased it. It’s the perfect burgundy colour that you can wear all year round. It’s a very sexy colour.
MAC matte lipstick in Velvet Teddy
I recently was gifted this lipstick for Christmas, and instantly fell in love. It’s a my-lips-but-better type of colour on me. It’s not too pink and not to brown. A perfect nude.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in Fenty Glow
Would you believe me that I wear this colour at least once or twice a week? It’s that beautiful, and it’s perfect to wear regardless how heavy you’ve done your makeup. It’s truly the best lipgloss I’ve ever tried.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation in 130
I have tested a lot foundations in the past few years, and have been disappointed in the colours I’ve found. A lot of store associates love to give me cool-toned foundation when I have a very warm and yellow undertone. (Sorry I have redness on my face, it doesn’t mean I’m cool toned!) So when I found the Fenty foundation in 130 for fair skin with yellow undertones, I was so excited. This foundation matches my skin tone perfectly. It hides all the redness on my face, and leaves my incredibly oily skin matte, yet very skin like. I am in love with this foundation.
ABH Modern Renaissance palette
I love how versatile this palette is, and how I can go from a minimal makeup look, to something really dramatic.
Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen
This eyeliner makes it very easy to create the perfect wing. The brush tip allows for easy mobility on your eyelid, creating a sharp line every time. The brush tip never frays, so I never have to worry about my eyes looking like a racoon. It’s a matte formula too, which I think suits most eye looks as well.
NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Yogurt
No matter what type of metallic or shimmer eyeshadow I use, this NYX pencil always makes the colours pop. I have some eyeshadows that really need a good base for them to stand out, and this particular colour works wonders with almost all shimmery eyeshadows.
Bite Matte Crayon in Leche
I didn’t think I would like this colour as much as I do. It is similar to Bite’s Amuse Bouche lipstick in Meringue, but if Meringue has a hint more brown. It’s a very wearable pink colour, considering I don’t like traditional pink lipsticks.
Makeup Geek Beaches and Cream matte eyeshadow
Beaches and Cream is the perfect transition colour for my paler complexion. It really helps me tie together my looks.
Cover FX Perfect Setting Powder
I have extremely oily skin. When I mean extremely, I’m not exaggerating. I find that when I use this setting powder, my foundation looks so smooth, flawless, and matte. I don’t necessarily have to set my Fenty foundation, but I like to if I’ll be out of the house long, or if it’s summertime. This setting powder may not claim to be mattifying, but it does wonders for my skin.
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
As I mentioned before, I have an oily complexion, which includes my eyes. The Too Faced eyeshadow primer keeps my eyeshadow in place, and vibrant all day long. Sometimes I have my eyeshadow on for 12 hours and it still looks like I just did my makeup.

These are truly my holy grail makeup products, and ones I use all the time. One thing I have noticed while doing my project pan is that there are a few products I don’t have a holy grail for. I don’t have a favourite highlighter, bronzer, blush, concealer, primer, or setting spray. Some of the reasons why I don’t have a favourite in these categories is because I haven’t tried something I absolutely loved, I have never tried that type of product, or I think I can find something better in the future.

I hope you found this list helpful. All of these products are ones I would recommend to everyone. They are truly loved, and used, by me. I can’t live without them, and if I pan any of them, I’m instantly repurchasing.
