Like most beauty-obsessed women out there, I am always looking for the best beauty product on the market, but there are products I can’t get sick or rid of. I am sharing with you my all time favorite holy grail products I dearly love and can’t see myself without. Most of these products are hyped up but are worth the hype. They are also pretty affordable.
A moisturizer is very important and beneficial in your skincare regimen. That’s why it’s my next step of my beauty regimen after cleansing my face. Let me say that this completely changed my beauty regimen. I fell in love with this moisturizer. Before it, I used to use the Cetaphil moisturizer. I love that too but it doesn’t compare to this moisturizer. It is light weight and melts in my skin. It’s non-greasy. It also made me look radiant(that’s what it claimed.) And It’s only $20! Its a small bottle but a little goes a longggg way.
My next skincare product is also from Mario Badescu. Actually, I love all of his skincare products. I own a majority of them. This next product is a seaweed night cream. It is also a lightweight oil-free cream. I love using this cream every night after removing my makeup. I recommend you all use a night cream. They really help combat wrinkles, dryness and any blemishes. I apply a pea-sized and it covers my entire face. I wake up the next day and my face looks bright and feels very smooth and soft. It cost only $22! It might sound a lot for a 1 oz. jar but you only need to apply a little bit. Lasts very long for about 2 months and a half.
The next product is an eye cream. I feel like an eye cream is very important in everyone’s skin care regimen. It helps moisturize your eye area and helps defeat wrinkles at an early age. I love using this eye cream at day, night and before applying my eye makeup. It helps your under eye concealer to blend really well. This eye cream has a non-greasy consistency. It blends with my skin like a charm. My eyes don’t feel greasy or dry. It does take a little while to dry. I love the squeeze tube packaging. It is so much cleaner this way than a jar. It costs only 13.99. A great price compared to many eye creams that do the same job and cost more.
The Morphe 35o palette, the hyped up eyeshadow palette of the year. If you don’t know, Morphebrushes has a range of great affordable eyeshadow palettes and singles. This palette has got to be my all time favorite warm, everyday palette. The colors and pigmentation are outstanding. Seriously, if you love warm eyeshadows and you don’t have this palette, you NEED to get it NOW. These shadows blend beautifully. The shimmers are so creamy and pigmented, almost foiled-like. And it cost only 22.99 for 35 eyeshadows! You can’t beat the price.
Who favors drugstore mascaras over high end ones? Many can agree that drugstore mascaras are the BEST. The L’Oréal Voluminous and the L’Oréal Telescopic mascaras are my ride or die mascaras. These are my favorite from the drugstore. I favor them over my high end mascaras. They actually do what they claim, long and voluminous lashes. I use these both mascaras every day. I start with the L’Oréal Voluminous. I apply only ONE coat on each lash and BOOM I have thick, voluminous lashes. It also gives length; but I also apply another layer of the L’Oréal telescopic since it gives me a great amount of length to my lashes. It is as if I’m wearing lashes but without the tedious job of gluing them. If you struggle wearing fake eyelashes, like I do, I really recommend that you buy both these mascaras. You won’t be disappointed! Plus, they are both affordable! L’Oréal Voluminous $5.26 and L’Oréal Telescopic $7.60, both at Walmart.
The Maybelline Fit Me concealer, supposedly a dupe to the NARS. Try this, if you can’t afford the NARS one. They pretty much do the same job. I have used 4 tubes of this concealer! My relationship to this concealer is unbreakable. It truly fits me. I love how it covers and blends seamlessly. It does not cake or crack. Of course, you have to always set your under eye with a setting powder, with every concealer so it doesn’t crack. It is also creamy, not thick or runny. And it’s only $4.99 at Target!
Too Faced Born This Way foundation, a medium to full coverage and oil-free. I love this foundation, since it covers all of my acne scars. To make this look more flawless on me, I use a oil-free primer under my foundation. I feel like if the primer and foundation are almost made from the same ingredients; they apply smoothly and flawlessly on the face. What I love about this foundation is that it doesn’t cake up or look like I am wearing a lot of makeup. It looks like I was born with a blemish-free face. It only costs $39. Compared to other foundations, this is affordable.
The Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour palette. I have used a few contour palettes, but this palette is something! It is sooo pigmented and blendable. The colors match perfectly for my undertone. This palette is for neutral, warm and cool undertones. I have showed so much love for this palette, as you can see in the picture. I love the highlighting shades. Kat Von D came out with a refillable contour palette. It’s the same palette but you can remove the pans, sadly mine isn’t the refillable one. This contour palette costs $46 and the refillable one costs $49. Totally worth the money.
This has been the best oil for my hair. I have never found an oil that doesn’t become greasy on my hair. But this Morrocanoil does not grease. It keeps my curly hair silky and smooth. I have been using this for a couple of years and always go back to it. It is a little thick, so a little amount should be used and it coats the hair completely. This literally lasts a long time, I mean close to a year! It costs $34, not bad for what you get.
So, here are my top 10 holy grail products. These are the products that works for me just fine. I love to use them everyday.
Are any of these products one of your holy grail products? Do you love them as much as I do? Let me know! 🙂
