My Makeup Holy Grails

Hey there! This post is long overdue; I’ve been wanting to write this for a while. I usually wear a bit of makeup (some foundation, blush, mascara, eyeshadow and liquid lipstick), and in today’s post I’m going to be sharing my favorite products with you.

I absolutely love this NYX butter gloss. The color is “Angel Food Cake” and, y’all, it smells like cake! It applies easily, the color really compliments my skin tone, and it stays on for a while. It’s inexpensive too. I can’t say enough about it, I just love it. I have large lips so I don’t usually put on lipstick or liquid lipstick, but I love this enough that I wear it almost every day.

The other lipgloss I love is the Anastasia Beverly Hills brand in “Metallic Rose”. This one, in my humble opinion, smells even better than the NYX lipgloss.ย The color is similar to the NYX one, but it’s shimmery and more glossy. It doesn’t stay on as long, but I’m obsessed with the color. At $17, it’s pretty pricey, but it’s high quality and worth it.

Don’t the colors look similar?! The first shade is NYX and the second shade is the Anastasia Beverly Hills.

On special occasions I wear foundation, but I don’t wear it all the time because my pores clog easily, and I have acne-prone skin. When I want to cover up blemishes, I use the Erase Paste from Benefit. The shade blends with my skin tone perfectly, and I feel that it does a really good job of hiding imperfections. It spreads easily, and a little bit goes a long way, so I never have to use a lot. I would definitely recommend it!

My last makeup holy grail is the Maybelline mascara. I’ve used other mascaras in the past, but I always come back to this one. It’s inexpensive, doesn’t clump, and gets the job done!


Have you tried any of these products? How did they work for you? Thank you for reading, have an amazing weekend!
