Every so often there’s a beauty product that comes along and you’re just obsessed with it. No matter whether it’s new, old, drugstore or designer. We all have our favorites. We’re lucky that we have an extensive beauty cupboard and often get to try amazing new things, so here are a few of the holy grails that we’re packing into our makeup bags this week.
Stila Perfect Me Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette
The Stila Palette in medium tan has all the shades you need for a daytime look. It includes a mauve shade that’s really popular these days, it’s perfect for a natural look or a smokey evening look. I just love it, love it! It has the perfect colors for every skin tone. They’re really pigmented and it fits perfectly in your bag.
Marc Jacobs Air Blush Soft Blush Duo
The Marc Jacobs Air Blush is based on their striped dresses, the packaging is really luxurious and you feel really chic when you have it in your bag and take it out. The little click sound it makes when you close it is really nice. And it suits almost all skin tones and has a slight shimmer! Make sure to watch this amazing tutorial
Gerard Slay All Day Setting Spray
This setting spray makes your makeup stay on all day and stay matte. It works. It’s very different from all of the other ones I’ve tried.
Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
The Marc Jacobs Mascara is amazing if you want long, super luscious lashes. I hate it when amazing mascaras don’t come off easily and clump your eyelashes but this one just wipes on and doesn’t clog up my lashes at all. Also, the packaging is amazing. You’ve probably seen me showing off my eyelashes on Snapchat.
Barry M Eye Define Liquid Eyeliner
I love this eyeliner. I have really big eyes and sometimes it can be difficult to apply a flawless cat eye flick, but this eyeliner makes it so easy. It’s really smooth, liquid and has a precise little brush for application. I’m already depressed thinking about this one running out.
Illamasqua Complement Palette
The four colors in this Illamasqua Palette don’t really look like they go together but they are really surprising. The white color actually comes out like a peachy gold and is perfect for highlighting, and the pinky color is my favorite moody purple for the outer corners of my eyes. Such unusual colors but seriously beautiful. I love the sleek packaging too.

By Terry Terrybly Velvet Rouge in No 4
The second Summer ends, I go straight back to wearing a dark lip. My favorite at the moment is the By Terry Terrybly Velvet Rouge in No 4. The long lasting, matte formula is dark without being too vampy and is comfortable to wear, with no need to worry about smudging.
Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette
Sleek’s highlighting palette is amazing quality for such a bargain and contains four highlighting shades, the peach is my favorite for a healthy glow. Everyone’s obsessed with this one.
Benefit Ready, Set, Brow!
This is an invisible setting gel that is great for grooming your brows on the go if you’re in a hurry. Really amazing.
