Holy Grail Items ♡

These seven items are ones I really can't live without. They're all I really need. If you've noticed there isn't a mascara there because I've never really found one I'm completely happy with I'm still on the perfect mascara hunt. As long as I have these seven items I'll be set for anything.

MAC mineral skin finish in Crystal pink - I'd never used a MSF before I bought this one. I didn't really know what to expect. I fell in love, instantly. It's the perfect blush/bronze shade for my pale skin. I love it alot. I got it over a year ago when the collection (forgotten it's name) came out and I've only just used up the dome part and I use it almost everyday. I also have my eye on soft & gentle but as I'm on my spending ban so It's just going to have to wait. *cries*

Illamasqua pure pigment in Beguile - My first ever Illamasqua product and my favourite. It's a gorgeous white glitter pigment with flecks of mint green & pink. It's absolutely incredible, whenever I'm off out on a night out I add this to my lids & dust some on my cheek bones & chest and I'm ready for a night on the town, it adds so much glamour to any make up look. My night out make up wouldn't be the same without this. For a cheaper alternative try Barry M's glitter dusts. 

Collection lasting perfection concealer - I think everyone who's tried this loves it. It gives the perfect coverage you would need in a concealer and it never creases on me. I've heard it does crease on some people but I've never had that problem. It's a lovely concealer and unless it gets discontinued I'll continue to repurchase.

Collection Extreme 24 hour Pen liner - I love this. There isn't much to say about it. It's the blackest black & it can go over the darkest glitter-est shadows and still be blacker than anything. It's a really overall good eye liner and it's so inexpensive, but also so much better than other more expensive eye liner I've tried in the past. I'll continue to repurchase forever. 

Estee Lauder Double wear - The perfect foundation in my opinion. I cannot rave about this product enough. It's expensive though, the only product that I've found that can 80% match up to it is Revlon Colour Stay. If you love full coverage that won't budge then you'll love double wear. 

MAC Paint pots in Bare Study & Indianwood - I love these. They're the perfect base for almost every eyeshadow look I wear. They're that gorgeous they can be worn alone with no eyeshadow over. I like to blend them both together to make a gorgeous pale gold. Again, these are on the expensive side. Maybeline Colour Tattoo's are a good dupe, so I've heard as I haven't tried those yet. 



  1. I've always wanted to try a paint pot or the Collection concealer! x

    1. The concealer is unreal quality for the price. I'd never buy a high end concealer whilst Collection are still making that one it's pretty amazing! xx

  2. I love MAC paint pots, I'm almost out of mine so I may pick up IndianWood it looks gorgeous xx

    1. It is a gorgeous colour! Thanks for commenting xx
