Tagged by the wonderful BloominBeauty5 - Here are my Top 10 Beauty Products!
MUFE Face and Body : Sheer, natural, blends seamlessly, and never looks cakey. This foundation is water resistant, so it is excellent for summer
Not sure if this is my HG yet, but it's coming damn close
I apply this with a Sonia Kashuk Stippling brush and Fix + for a dewy light finish
Milani Luminoso: A complete drugstore gem. I end up wearing this pretty much non stop, and I can't believe I have yet to get bored with this. Perfect for work or time off, this gorgeous peachy blush gives the perfect amount of glow that's never over the top, but always luminous
NARS Dolce Vita: A personal fave for fall and winter. I don't hear as many people talking about this shade and I have no idea why! This is the most gorgeous berry toned color.
The lipstick, the blush, the gloss, I own them all and will always repurchase
This color may look scary but it gives a more sculpted effect that leans more towards sophisticated without being old lady
Any age can wear this gorgeous matte berry, a NARS must have in my humble opinion
Blistex: A very recent discovery for mine ( I know, where the hell have I been?) disguised beneath the extremely non outlandish packaging is the best lip balm period.
I've tried balms from Shisiedo, MAC, By Terry, and have gone all over the drugstore route. This baby is the winner!
Laura Mercier Mineral Powder brush: A complete stumble of a gem. I received this as part of a Laura Mercier Mineral foundation pack. This is her version of a mineral foundation brush, which I hated it for. Talk about shedding!!! ( Ok, I did not expect much, it was sold in a gift set...) but used on any pigmented or baked blush (Dolce Vita and Luminoso included) provides the perfect cheek application that's never overly sheer nor heavy. The perfect hand is easily found with this brush
Moroccan oil: Complete hair HG. I apply this to my hair mostly wet, and prepared for silky strands in the AM. Not only does this help my hair dry at a rapid speed, but on day two, my hair is beyond silky soft, and feels incredible. Makes me not want to wash it! When applied dry, it provides assistance to damage ends, and adds easy shine
Lorac Moonstone: In the world of Champagne and neutral shadows, this is my number 1. I know, it does not look special in the pan, even when applied its alright but as the day goes on it just starts looking even better and not really fading, but more intensifying on my lid with the natural oils to make the most amazing shade. I can't stand Champagne colors which are too gold, it has to have a bit of pink in it for me to really stand out, this for me is my number 1 most used shadow for everyday, and I already have a back up.
Do you see the pan? That never happens to me!
By Candle light: More MAC MSF's need to be like this formulation. A sheen not glitter, pinky gold, with refinement. In the winter when I am paler, I can use this as a blush for a glowing semi n*de pink effect. Blush or highlight, this is my favorite highlighter. It beats Dior Amber diamond for me by a long shot
Shu Uemura Hard 9 Brow Pencil Seal Brown: Best brow pencil ever. When I bought this I couldn't even swatch it and had to buy it blind. This formulation of this pencil only releases pigment when mixed with the oils on your skin that are a part of your own eyebrows. ( I know, what?? It's that smart~) The pencil is soo long, much longer than traditional eye brown pencils and because it does not release color on any part of the skin except the eye brows this lasts forever! I use this 6-7x a week and sharpen it maybe 8x a YEAR
Talk about bang for your buck
Shu uemura is no longer available in US counters, but can be purchased online.
Clarasonic: No, this is not the pore blaster that it's famously claimed. This did not provide quick results either, but over the months you notice an overall clarity to your complextion (not spots wise) but less scarring, faded freckles, and it just really helps make your skin look even With the mild daily exfoliation, super soft skin to the touch is to be expected
