My Top Three Holy Grail Makeup Products
My first Holy Grail is the Maybelline Fit Me setting powder. This powder has never failed me. It never makes me look cake-y and keeps my skin looking matte longer than any other drug store powder I've tried. My skin is quite oily so I do need to touch up my t-zone after a full work day, especially in the warmer months. I keep an extra Maybelline Fit Me setting powder in my purse for touching up and even when I apply a second layer, my skin is still never cake-y.
The Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes Mascara is my second Holy Grail. This mascara retails for $5.99 CAD which is on the cheap end, even for a drug store mascara. Don't let the low price fool you, this mascara is priceless in my opinion!! It gives me defined and very long lashes after applying two coats. My friends always ask me what mascara I'm wearing when I use it and they are always surprised when they learn how cheap it is! The formula is on the wet side but dries very quickly and is never flaky. It also wipes away from the skin super easily, which is perfect for me since I always manage to make a mess when applying it to my lower lashes. I prefer the "Lot of Lashes" version to the original version because I'm a huge fan of plastic brushes. The original version has a bristle brush which I find doesn't separate my lashes as well.
Finally, my third Holy Grail product is the Avon Ultra Luxury Brow Liner. This brow pencil glides over my brows and gives them a polished look, without being too harsh. My brows stay nice all day without fading. This pencil often goes on sale for $1.99 CAD which is a steal!
