Some of these are bargains, and some cost a little more, but I believe that it is money well spent. I have worn each of these products for years and years, some products even decades, (except the Too Faced products, but they won me over instantly.) After all, this post is all about me recommending you adding it to your own beauty list, so I want it to be products I have experience using regularly.
Clinique Superpowder Double Face Makeup - I have used this item since as long as I can remember. I don't wear foundation. Never have (except when required to on drill/dance team.) I have freckles, and I'm perfectly okay with them showing. This is the perfect coverage for me. It's a powder, but it's a "super" powder...so, it gives a little more coverage than regular powder but nowhere near as heavy as a foundation.
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - I'm a little bit of a mascara junkie. I buy lots of it. I wear lots of it. I change them up. I double them up. But, time and time again, I come back to my good ol' faithful mascara in the lime green and bright pink packaging that I've used since I was 14 years old.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - Yes, it costs more than Great Lash, but dang, it's some fantabulous mascara. Most of you know this because I starting using it after I saw several bloggers rave about it. And, it seems to get better the more I use it.
Revlon Colorstay Overtime Bare Maximum - For days that I just want a little color, not a nude, but not too much, this is my go-to. The picture on the link actually looks more orange that what it is. It truly does stay. I never need to re-apply. I'll be honest. I've spent money on a lot of other products trying to find a replacement for it, but I haven't found a color that I like any better on me for this purpose.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner - This eyeliner goes on easy and STAYS. It doesn't smudge or run. I've lived in hot and humid climates that have caused other eyeliner to make my eyes look like a raccoons. Not this one. Yet, it is super easy to remove when ready. This is well worth the price. I like my $1.99 eyeliner as much as the next gal, but when I want to put on eyeliner and know it will last all day, through sweat and tears, I'm happy that I've invested in this product. I've owned and used seven different colors and loved them all.
Tell me: will you add any of these to your list?
