My Favourite Products of All Time!

Hey Guys!
I just updated my "FAVOURITE PRODUCTS" tab. If have never seen this tab, I update it regularly when my holy grail products change. For reference, just click the tab. However, for this post, I figured I would just copy and paste the page for those of you who have been interested in an update. 


Here is a list of my current favourite products of all time. These are all deemed "Holy Grails" by me until I find something to replace a product (which rarely, if ever, happens). These are tried, tested and true and whether it be high end or drugstore, I don't discriminate. This is a complete list of what works for me! Some products are linked to previous posts if there is a review on that product. My goal is to have all these products individually reviewed. 

For reference I typically average a MAC NC30, but can range anywhere from NC20-40. I have normal to slightly dry skin. I will TRY and pick one "Holy Grail" from each list of favourites if one product stands out more than the rest. I will signify this with a *HG*.

    1. My blog cover I used flash photography so my skin looks a lot better than it is. I do like using Laura Mercier Radiance Primer, a sheer coverage foundation, highlighter and minimal powder to achieve a "glowing" complexion.

      I don't think I have reviewed a concealer yet...I will have to do that! My favourite is MAC Studio Finish Concealer and Hard Candy Glamoflage

      No, I have never tried it...it looks good!

    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to
    no backup. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  18. I've been surfing online more than three hours lately, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It's
    beautiful worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you
    probably did, the net can be much more useful than ever before.

  22. Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.

    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take
    a massive amount work? I am brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary
    every day. I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
