It takes a lot for me to call a product my holy grail. For me to call something a holy grail means that I have to use it over and over and repurchase it several times. I don’t have many products like that since I like trying new things and let’s be honest, there are a lot of good products on the market and the availability of online reviews makes buying good products even easier.

In this post I’ll be talking about some products that I certainly consider to be holy grail.

First off, my Mac Pro Longwear Concealer. I’ve talked about this before so I won’t bore you with the details. The bottom line is that I can’t find a high end or drugstore concealer that lives up to this in terms of finish and wear. I love the product itself but I hate the packaging.

Another holy grail product is my Mac Soft Ochre paint pot. This paint pot does a fantastic job at keeping my eyeshadow in place. I use it as an eyeshadow base for almost every look and it makes any eyeshadow last all day. It’s also very good at cancelling out any colour on my eyelids, it gives a very flawless blank canvas to work on.

Next, my Physician’s Formula lash booster 2-in-1 eyeliner + serum. This is a brush tip eyeliner that makes applying a sharp wing extremely easy. I would repurchase this time and time again for its precision and ease of use, however I don’t like that it’s not a matte finish. If I’m going for a flawless look for photos, I like going over this with my NYC liquid liner in jet black. Yet, I wouldn’t call the NYC liner my holy grail yet. I’m still on the hunt for my holy grail matte liner.

My holy grail lip product is the Sephora Lip Cream Stain. I don’t wear this everyday because I like alternating lipsticks but this is what I compare most of my other lip products to. I’ve never found a lipstick with a better formula. Ever since I tried this lip cream stain I went on a hunt to get more (they get sold out very quickly). It’s a liquid to matte lipstick that’s very long lasting and not drying in the slightest. Recently I’ve been reading reviews about other liquid to matte lipsticks, and for all brands, there’s mention of either the product feeling heavy or drying. This is neither. My goal is to purchase all the shades, I’m just waiting for the opportunity (they’re out of stock quite often).

My holy grail brow product is the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade in dark brown. This matches the color of my eyebrow hairs perfectly and I find it really easy to get the brow look I want (be it natural or power brow) using my trusty baby Sleek Cosmetics brow kit brush.

As to other products, I wouldn’t say that I have a holy grail foundation, blush, contour, highlight, eyeshadows, mascara, bronzer, primers, setting sprays and the business… My taste for these products highly depends on the condition of my skin (for face products) and my mood (for other products). I do have favorites but I alternate depending on what look I’m going for.

I hope you enjoyed this post and do suggest products that you think I might like.

Besos xx
