I think I have a pretty big (and definitely expensive!!) makeup collection, and I'm always wanting to add to it by trying out new products. I may want to try out new beauty items, but there will always be certain products that I will buy time and time again. Here are my current makeup holy grails...
Too Faced - Better Than sEX mASCARA
I'm currently on my second tube of Too Faced's award-winning mascara, and I have a mini version on standby. Honestly, there's a reason Better Than Sex is labelled the world's best mascara. It does literally everything I look for in a mascara (and I'm very fussy) - it is volumising, lengthening and the wand is easy to use, as well as having adorable packaging. It doesn't clump but I do find there's a bit of excess mascara on my lids after I've applied it, but that's because it makes my lashes so long! I absolutely love Better Than Sex and I'd go as far as saying it is my favourite makeup product that I own.
(I'm sorry my tube looks a mess, it's almost run out so has been well loved!)
Anastasia Beverly Hills - Modern Renaissance Palette
£43, Beauty Bay
ABH's Modern Renaissance quickly made itself a cult product and I think any eyeshadow collection is incomplete without it. The colour scheme is beautiful and the shadows are insanely pigmented and blendable. I always get the best compliments on my eye makeup when I use this palette.
Spectrum Collections - The Glam Clam
£60, Spectrum Site
I absolutely swear by Spectrum Collection brushes, but their Glam Clam is my favourite because of how pretty it is. The brushes come in an adorable case and they are STUNNING. They're an amazing quality and I've had them over a year now with no signs of wear (they are slightly stained, but that's expected). Spectrum brushes are 100% vegan, too!
Fenty Beauty - Glossbomb lipgloss
£16, Harvey Nichols
I'm not sponsored by Fenty, I promise. The Fenty gloss is honestly just something else. The applicator is great, the gloss makes my lips look luscious and wearing it gives me the biggest confidence boost. It's fairly long lasting, but you will need to top up throughout the day. It's great value for money and smells amazing, too!
Kylie Cosmetics - KOKO K
$17 (£13 at time of writing this post, but I don't know the brand's rates), Kylie Cosmetics
I just adore the colour of Koko K and how well it suits my skin tone (it's my all time favourite nude), I'm currently on my second tube and I'm planning on restocking when I can. The formula of Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipsticks is quite drying, but I don't seem to have issues if I pop some Vaseline on before application. It. Does. Not. Budge. I can have it on absolutely all day without needing to touch up and I absolutely adore its scent! The downside is the shipping/taxes etc that everyone in the UK/international struggles with with Kylie's brand, but I'm heading to New York in the Summer so I'm hoping my tube can hold out until then. Also, Kylie's lipsticks are cruelty free! Which is something I found out while researching for this post.
Well, there's my holy grail makeup items! I know they're all fairly "high end", but if I love something then I'm happy to spend the money on it. What are your favourite beauty bits? Drop a comment below to let me know and maybe give me some advice on what else you'd like to see from me!
