Everyone has products they love and will re-purchase time and time again. I’m not an exception to the rule. Sometimes we come across products that will be in our routines for the rest of our lives they’re THAT good. I love make-up and I am a self confessed make-up hoarder. I don’t think I’m the best and for the amount of money I spend you’d think I’m a MUA, but I’m not. I just love experimenting and to do that I need to try new products!
Today I’m going to be talking about my top 5 favourite make-up products of all time, the ones that I plan on using until the end of it’s life, or until I find something even better and yes, they are in order of preference. All these products look disgusting (honestly) in these pictures because they are well used, some a little too well and because I travel with them and life has worn them down, they don’t make for the prettiest pictures.
#5. POREfessional by Benefit Cosmetics.
I have ranted and raved about this product since I got it. I have fairly combination/excessively oily skin as well as large pores on my cheeks. This is one of the only primers I have found that doesn’t make my foundation turn cakey or patchy (especially on my nose.) The price is a bit steep for me at £26, but on the plus side a little goes a long way.
#4. Morphe 35K Koffee Palette
This was the first eyeshadow palette I ever purchase. It was the beginning of the end for me when it came to make-up. I bought this palette because the colours were neutrals and they worked well with my skintone. I was enticed by the great price for the amount of shadows you got and I’d heard so many good things about Morphe from other bloggers and influencers.
#3. Skin Frost (Summer Snowcone) by Jeffree Star Cosmetics
Now, I wrote about Jeffree Star a few weeks ago and I received a little bit of hate in a few comments (which were never posted because we don’t thrive on negativity here at Efforlescence) and I just want to say something. I don’t condone racism. I never have and I never will. I don’t follow Jeffree religiously but I know from what I’ve seen he made mistakes when he was 19/20 and he apologised for it not long ago. Everyone deserves a second chance in my opinion and until he proves to me he ins’t worth spending money on, I stand my this: his. products. are. f#cking. bomb. dot. com. This skin frost is a beautiful yellow/gold shade that works perfectly on my skin tone, even more now that I’m slightly tan. The price (£25.50/$29) is awesome for the amount of product you get, how big the mirror is and for how beautiful the packaging is. I’m shook.
#2. Modern Renaissance by Anastasia Beverly Hills
This palette was SO nearly my number one product ever. I use it almost every time I put make-up on in some way, shape or form. I can simply pull a few colours from it and use other palettes or I can create a complete eye look using it and that’s what I want from a palette. This palette for me was a MUST BUY when I saw the shades and trying to get a hold of it was like shopping on Christmas Ever, nearly impossible, but I finally got one and I’m so glad I did because I will be repurchasing this as soon as I hit pan – not like the Subculture palette, I didn’t even like the colour chart in that – sorry ABH. The price is pretty average, you’re getting 14 shades for £41 which compared to Too Faced where you can puy up to £32 for 9 shadows.
#1. Dipbrow Pomade by Anastasia Beverly Hills
I shouldn’t apologise to ABH too much because they’re my number one product of all time. Even when I don’t wear a full face of make up, I do my eyebrows and the product I’ve used for the last 3 years religiously is the dipdrow. It works so well with my eyebrows and I find the end result looks amazing (the amount of comments I’ve had from strangers makes my eyebrow ego REALLY big.) I love the texture and I honestly don’t think too much about the price (£15) because of how well it works for me. It’s so good I don’t even look for eyebrow products to test anymore because I have my lifelong partner in eyebrow crime – thanks ABH!
