5 Makeup Products I Can't Live Without

Hello again ! Today I want to talk about the 5 makeup products I can't live without and why I love them to bits ! So I will start from greatest to least most needed products , even though they are all pretty much needed. but anyways let's get started :

  L'Oreal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes

I love this mascara. It stays on without flaking, running, or raccoon-eyes. I don't have to struggle with removing it thus avoiding losing eyelashes. It satisfies my need for longer lashes without having to apply multiple coats. Though it's price is at the higher end of drug store brands, it is half the price of high end mascara's!

 MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon

MAC Carbon is just a good staple matte black eyeshadow. It is smooth and soft, easy to work with and is easy to build with. I find this eyeshadow very wearable, even during the day. I use it to fill in my brows everyday and have yet to hit the pan of it. This shadow does not only has a long life span but is very durable during the day. I can recall when I went to warped tour and I was drenched in sweat yet my brows were still somewhat intact afterwards. Like I said It's build-able and can be worn quite sheer, turning it into more of a very dark grey than black. I find this eyeshadow very useful and easy to work with while using my angled brush.

Revlon ColorStay Blemish Concealer

I find this concealer to be my go to concealer and easy to apply. I find it easy to blend using my ring finger and I have never had breakouts from this and will continue to use it.

 MAC False Lashes

I was extremely skeptical when I bought this product... I have never, ever liked any MAC mascara products before but the sales person really sold me on it. I'm really happy I did buy it because it has been the best mascara I've ever used other the double extend mascara. Contrary to my last tangent about not having to buy high-end mascaras this is worth it ! This mascara separates, adds volume, lengthens and curls (so much so I don't have to even use a curler anymore). Price is completely reasonable and you get a lot out of it. The one downside to this mascara is that I find the color tends to soften a bit at the end of the day. I'm a person who likes intensely black lashes, and this kind of bums me out, but I can settle since the overall product is amazing.

Maybelline Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I don't have bad acne , just a few scars left over from years ago due to acne but this bb cream actually provides nice coverage , even though sheer , and leaves my skin feeling so nice and actually matches my skin shade. This works great on my combination skin that tends to be dry on my cheeks and slightly oily in the zone as the day goes on. It gives just a very sheer coverage but I believe it does what it claims and blurs my imperfections rather that covering them. I like it for my lazy days off instead of a heavy foundation. I have also found that it works well under my foundation as a primer.

Thank you for reading and do forget to follow me for more post !
