There are always those products that you consistently reach for. Even me, who moves through my collection like a river over a waterfall. I don’t stick to one product for long, my palettes look brand new, because they are each used as much as another, and for the most part I don’t even dip into the same spot in the pan.
There are however a few holy grail products, that I will repurchase time and time again and hold a dear place in my heart, and I will always reach for them.
NYC Liquid Liner
It looks cheap because it is, BUT it’s amazing, and I am on my 3rd of 4th. This is a brush tip and a wet formula, and doesn’t operate like a pen. The brush isn’t stiff, but doesn’t fray and can give a thick or thin line depending on the style you want and the way the brush is angled. Do I think this is a good product for someone trying to learn how to do a wing for the first time? Probably not because it is VERY black and intense, but if you have mastered the art of the pen, save yourself $15 from buying the tattoo liner ( Which don’t get me wrong, is also great) and buy this instead. There is no transfer and it stays on forever. For those of you with dogs, it can withstand a million puppy kisses too. Trust me, my guys have tried.
YSL The Shock Mascara
Yeah I know, pretty steep contrast to Mr. Eyeliner up there, but I swear it’s worth it. I have recommended this to countless people and most believe it is worth the splurge. I open it and let it sit for a week or two, (not open, but unsealed from the factory) to let it dry just a bit. I prefer a dryer formula so I do this periodically to make products work better for me. No flaking, No clumping, just big volumized lashes, that at the end of the day come off with minimal effort.
Clinique Take the Day off Cleansing Balm
This product came as a surprise to me when I received it as a deluxe sample, which I promptly used and went and repurchased the full size. This is a solid makeup remover. I know right? You are all like what? Wouldn’t that hurt? No people it doesn’t. Think coconut oil (Which is also a great beauty tool for removing makeup, making hair shiny, and adding a little coconut flavour to zucchini noodles.) This cleanser breaks down your makeup, and then all you need to do is wash it off with warm water and a face cloth, and then carry on with your regular skin care routine. I also have a penchant for the Boscia Makeup Breakup Cleansing Oil.
Cerave Daily Moisturizer
Seems steep for walmart doesn’t it? Until you realize this tub is as big as my head, and really works wonders for not only your face but for your body as well. I appreciate its ability to last forever, and be a multi use product. I am on my second tub, and it’s worth it. Just like you.
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder
This is something that almost annoys me. I can’t find any powder that is this good. I keep looking for the Airspun powder that you can get at Walmart in the states to replace it, but its just not working out for me. That being said I am on my 3rd round of this powder, because it’s so damn good I keep shelling out the big bucks for it. Although bitter about it, I still do it.
NYX Pore Filling Primer
I wish this was just a teeny bit cheaper, but it’s still my favourite pore filling primer that doesn’t pill up on my skin. I press this into the places on my face where my pores are more prominent, and use the Hangover RX from Too Faced on the rest of my skin. This covers both my dry skin and my large pores with minimal effort.
Thanks for coming by today, what products to you find yourself repurchasing over and over?
