My Top Ten Makeup Products

This is my since-everyone’s-doing-it-I-must-do-it-also list of top ten makeup products I love. Despite the crazy amount of makeup I have (more so on blushes, which I have to do an updated post on soon), these are the items I use most often, in no particular order.

Chanel Vitalumiere

Chanel Vitalumiere Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 – I know I didn’t have this for long, but it really was love at first sight (more like love at first touch). Incredibly light on the skin, especially for my oily T-zone.

NARS Deep Throat

NARS blush in Deep Throat – This is my #1 blush to go to. Its very subtle shimmer on beautiful coral makes this so very easy to wear. For me, it beats the Orgasm by a mile.

MAC Studio Fix Compact=

MAC Studio Fix compact powder (NC30) – Even though I’m not a fan of MAC products, I really like this powder (as you can tell. Hit pan, baby!). Controls the oilies on my T-zone without looking too powdery.

Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder

Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder – Very fine-milled powder, finishes my foundation very well.

TheBalm Down Boy

The Balm Down Boy blush – This was a gift from the beautiful ladies at So Loverly. I have warm-toned skin, so pink blushes (or anything with pink/red tones) don’t look very good on me. Somehow this just works. One of my top favourite blushes.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Too Faced Shadow Insurance – No other eyeshadow primer does a better job on my super oily eyelids than this. The Urban Decay Primer Potion’s too runny for my liking. With this on, my eyeshadows stay put for hours.

Benefit Cream Eyeshadow in Skinny Jeans

Benefit cream eyeshadow in Skinny Jeans – I know it doesn’t look like I use this much (hard to do, since I have so many eyeshadows), but this is my go-to eyeshadow when I want to do the easy smoky-eye look. Easily blendable, and it doubles as an eyeliner too. Remains crease-free for hours. Love the gorgeous pewter.

Sephora Lipgloss in Hot Coral

Sephora lipgloss in Hot Coral – Out of my 8914234 lipglosses which I could never ever finish, this is my #1 evening lipgloss. I’ve not tried any other lipgloss which could give me that beautiful dark coral gloss which is not sticky. I have yet to find a suitable dupe for this, with the same consistency.

Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Neo

Majolica Majorca Lash Enamel Glamour Neo mascaraVal introduced this to me ages ago (in fact, that was how we met. She recommended this mascara to me, asked me if I could help get her a couple of tubes on one of my trips to Malaysia. And the rest is history). I had never used any mascara that has a comb for a wand instead of a brush, so this was something new. It’s the best mascara I’ve encountered so far for short, sparse lashes. The volume and intensity of the mascara are amazing. A bit difficult to remove, I’d admit, but the results are worth it.

Chanel Rouge Coco in Organdi Rose

Chanel Rouge Coco in Organdi Rose – a 30th birthday gift from Legeeque and SY. I’ve been wanting this ever since I saw the review on Temptalia, but I was too cheap to get it. Absolutely love the colour and texture of the lipstick. My most luxurious lippie so far.

Top Ten Makeup Products

There you go, my top ten makeup products. I’m actually glad I did this; it’s good to know that there are still pieces of makeup I go back to again and again. It’s like shopping in my stash once more.

    Thanks for sharing your top ten! The MAC Studio Fix powder is surprising good for dry skin too! I really wanna try the Chanel ProLumiere or Vitalumiere. I think this aqua one might be too sheer for my liking.
