I’m here today with an overly dramatised blog post entitled products I couldn’t live without. Now, I probably would still be alive if I didn’t own these, but I do really love them and would suggest that they’re at holy grail sort of status in my life.
Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin.
From left to right, I’ve decided that I love the Burberry sheer eye shadow in pale barley so much that it deserves some sort of award. The perfect shade for day and a great partaker in a evening smokey eye. AND THE PACKAGING.
I’ve also got a soft spot for my French skincare duo in the form of the Caudalie beauty elixir and Embryolisse Lait Creme concentrate, together these work as a refreshing, hydrating dream and I can’t wait to pick up more French bits when I visit Paris in August.
My deodorant of choice for around three years now is the Mitchum women’s one in unscented. I actually prefer a roll on situation but I’m currently using the spray jobby and it’s not too shabby.
For lips we go back to France in the form of the Nuxe reve de miel lip balm in both pot and stick form of course. These are the best products for hydrating the inner and nourishing the outer to give a perfect pout. I have around 16 lip balms on rotation but I do always come back to these and if I had to chuck the others it would probably be ok.
That lipstick over there? MAC Shy Girl, the perfect peach nude. And that little bit you see is all that I have left. I predict a purchase.
For a base for the eyes I always go back to the Maybelline colour tattoo leather effect in creamy beige. I’ve spoken about it three million times before but for those that are new around these ends its a no shimmer, no fuss, cool toned cream shadow. You need it.
For cheeks, I’ve become a lazy lady and most days just chuck on a bit of the NARS Laguna bronzing powder. The perfect bronze without being orange or pink, a subtle shimmer in the pan but not something I’ve ever seen translate even in the broadest of daylights.
Finally, Soap and Glory’s archery pencil has quickly become a staple, so much so I’d happily be rid of my old favourites. I’ve spoken about this loads over the past few weeks so I’ll spare you the spiel and just say that I couldn’t possibly live without it.
So my holy grail picks, I can’t help but feel there are a few categories missing so I will make it my mission to find the perfect products and inform you asap. You don’t have to thank me.
