We all have those products that we can always rely on to be exceptional & to do exactly what we want them to. While I love to try products that are new to the market (like most beauty bloggers out there) I also firmly believe in showing those all time favourites some love now & again. Today’s post is all about the products that I can always trust to do a good job & why I always come back to them time & time again.
Mac Lipsticks I won’t go into too much detail because I have a post on my favourite MAC lipsticks shades here but MAC lipsticks will always be my favourite. I have lipsticks from many brands but I find that I reach for my MAC lipsticks the most as they are easy to wear, they are long-lasting, the shades are beautiful & the formula is dreamy.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation This is said to be the number one foundation worldwide & when I first bought this foundation about 4 years ago I completely understood why. When I need my foundation to stay on the entire day this is the most reliable product I own – it just does not budge! Being a dry skin girl I do like to add a little extra moisturiser before applying this foundation for a smooth application & finish. I wear the shade Fresco & as this foundation doesn’t have a pump I use the MAC foundation pumps to make things that little bit easier.
Mac Fix + Once I started using this product I was completely hooked & I just cannot live without it. Fix + is a multi-purpose product but my favourite ways to use it are either underneath or on top of my foundation. Under foundation it provides my skin with an extra blast of moisture that makes my foundation go on beautifully while spraying it onto my skin after my makeup is finished removes any powdery finishes & makes my skin look glowy.
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer This concealer is my holy grail! It’s of a light consistency but has great coverage. I always opt for the lightest shade which is shade 1 Fair because it’s light enough to really brighten my under eye without looking like a clown. I have several back ups of this because unfortunately they don’t carry it in South Africa & I just cannot live without it!
The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter If you love a highlight that POPS & you haven’t tried this…where have you been?! This highlighter is just the bomb & I find myself reaching for it most days as I know it will always give me that great highlight. It’s a light goldish shade & it matches perfectly with any makeup look. If you told me that I had to bin all of my other highlighters & just keep this one I’d still be happy – It’s that good!
