Fails and Holy Grails

Thankfully this time around I have more holy grails than fails. So let's get to it, shall we?!

FAILS:


(Forgot to picture High Beam)

 



Revlon Color Stay Liquid Foundation $12.99
This was recommended to me and I tried it quite a few times but it  broke me out. Not a fan of that.


Urban Decay Potion Primer $20
I know a lot of people love this primer, but it really didn't make my makeup last any longer. I actually feel like it may have even made it last a shorter amount of time that what it normally does.

L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara $7.99
This mascara didn't add any definition to my lashes. It didn't make them darker, fuller, or longer. I absolutely hate the brush, too. Just awful. I will not be repurchasing this.

ELF Blush in Mellow Mauve $3
In the pan it is such a gorgeous color, but it is not pigmented at all. Even when you try to pack on the color, it still just doesn't show up on the skin. I'm not too mad about it because it was only $3, but I was hoping for better color payoff.


Benefit High Beam $26
I'm not really a fan of many Benefit products, but this is a liquid highlighter and was difficult to blend out. It's a beautiful pink champagne color, it's just not blendable.


HOLY GRAILS:


Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer $18-$72
Although it's expensive, it's well worth it. It has a rich texture, beautiful packaging, and it makes my makeup last longer. Love, love, love this product!



Lorac Pro Palettes (1, 2, and Mega) $42 each (1 & 2) $58 (Mega - Limited Edition)
I will buy Lorac palettes til the death of me. Since I purchased my first Lorac palette, no other palette really compares. They're pigmented with a range of colors. It's the perfect every day palette for anyone. I don't have the Unzipped palettes, but I definitely plan on picking them up in the near future!

ELF Lip Exfoliator $3
I love that it's in a lipstick form instead of loose product and it really works wonders for dry lips. And for the price, it makes it that much better!


Too Faced Shadow Insurance $20
My eye makeup doesn't budge when I put this bad boy on. I even accidentally slept with makeup on once and it was perfectly in tact the next day with the help of this.

Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks $20
I love the color selection and they last for quite awhile. They don't settle into my lip lines and they don't get flaky either.


The Balm Mary Loumanizer $24
This highlighter is just bomb dot com. A pretty champagne color to hit the tops of your cheekbones. Perfection.


Tom Ford Lips and Boys Lipstick in Flynn (Limited Edition) $32
I know Tom Ford cosmetics are crazy expensive, but I paid $32 for a mini lipstick. They're full sized lipsticks are $50! I don't regret it because this color is the perfect pinkish nude lipstick. If this wasn't limited edition, I would wear this color all day, errrrrryday.


Tarte Blushes $26 each
These blushes are so pigmented you only need to dab the product with your brush and you have all the product you need. Love, love, love these.


Too Faced Chocolate and Milk Chocolate Soleil $30 each
I flip flop between the two of these depending on if I have a tan or not, but they are perfect for contouring or if you just want a nice bronzed face.


Bobbi Brown Pink Glow (Limited Edition) $45
I know everyone raves about the Bronze Glow from the "On The Rocks" collection BB came out with during the holidays. I do have the Bronze Glow as well, but because I'm so fair, the Pink Glow suits my skin tone so much better! It is a gorgeous iridescent pink.


Kat Von D Tattoo Liner $19
I know I've been saying Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner was my holy grail, but I think this one may have taken it's spot. It is so black and the tip is very fine which makes it so much easier to make a pointed wing. I'm obsessed.
