My Latest Makeup MUST-HAVES! :)

I love discovering and searching for new things to try when it comes to makeup. I edit my makeup must-haves at least once a year. Oftentimes when I discover something I like I stick to it and buy backup stocks in case they are discontinued. I am sharing with you some of my latest make-up staples all of which I've tried, tested and loved so much I already have backup supply! :)

1.YSL Rouge Volupté and YSL Rouge Volupté Shine Lipsticks- These offer great coverage, goes on smooth but feels so light, like butter! Another phenomenal product from YSL! Not for matte lipstick lovers but great for those who want glossy long-lasting luscious looking lips! The packaging makes this product so worth it, I just love looking at it!
I've tried other shades but I keep coming back to these two: Rouge Volupté Shine in Nude in Private and Rouge Volupté in Pink Caress. These are intensely pigmented, long-lasting, and contain comforting formula that leaves lips visibly smoother, plumper and more radiant. 

 2. Majolica Majorca's Brow and Lash Colorist- I am also a fan  of MAC's GIRL BOY Brow Set but lately I've been using this more often. Its a tad bit lighter and it doesn't have as much glitter as GIRL BOY. It stays on longer and it evens out my unruly thick brows! Majolica Majorca is a sister company of Shiseido, they have lots of great products worth trying! 

My current favorite brow product!
3. 1 DAY TATTOO REAL LASTING EYELINER-  These eye liners are the best!! They really do stay on and does not budge at all! I'm not an expert at applying eyeliner but the fine tip soft brush makes it easy for me to draw a fine line every time I use it. Unlike felt tip liners these remain pointed even if you use it over and over. I've tried SUPER BLACK and DEEP BROWN and I love them both!! :)
These eyeliners are wonderful! They stayput, are easy to use and also easy to remove! :)
4. Dior Blush Poudre Couleur & Lumiere- This Glowing Color Powder Blush is amazing! I have it in shade 821 Pinky Beige and it is the perfect shade for me. It looks really natural on me and when I use the highlight I feel I am lit from within! :) I love it because it's subtle and not too intense yet it stays on the whole day even if I have oily skin. It's a bit pricey but I've been using it for months and it still looks new! The brush that comes with the compact is terrible, just use your standard slanted blush brush and it's all good! :)

I use this to create a natural, healthy glow with a subtle sparkle! :)
5. K Palette Zero Kuma Cover Control Concealer in 02 Yellow Beige- Yes another eye concealer.. I know! This is a great under eye concealer but you need a little time, practice and patience to master it. I've learned I only need very little of it to conceal the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, and tiredness. Yellow Beige (02) is the shade I personally prefer for my own eye issues. It blends out fairly well and naturally without caking and creasing into my fine lines.

This is a VERY concentrated concealer so a little goes a long way because it's very pigmented! I can get a fair 12 hours without it fading, disappearing, or creasing into my eyes.

6. Majolica Majorca's Skin Lingerie Pore Cover- I love the name of this product.. SKIN LINGERIE! This product performed well on my skin but it did not cover every single pore as promised. Nonetheless this is a great makeup base and it has SPF 20 which "ups" the power of my daily sunscreen. After I use this my pores really appear a bit smaller and the shine on my t-zone is in control, simply put this is a great makeup base, mattifier and primer! 

A great primer and makeup base that make my pores seem smaller!! :)

7. BEN NYE Neutral Set Colorless Face Powder- I've heard a lot about setting powders before but I've never tried them. When I got my hands on this I was hooked! It really seals my makeup in place making it last the whole day! This is truly colorless and does not interfere with whatever I put on my face prior to applying powder. It's very inexpensive and just a little goes a long way!
This is "theater grade" powder at its best! It's not heavy, it "mattifies" my combination skin and it does not alter previous products I've applied on my face. It sets make-up very nicely without making the skin look overly powdery, and it hasn't broken me out at all
That's it for now, my latest makeup obsessions! Let me know if you have any questions, I will reply as always! :)
