Worth It: Makeup Products

Today I wanted to bring you guys some makeup products that have become staples in my everyday routine. These are products that I think are totally worth a try. Also, I added a link to each product so you can go check them out for yourselves. So, lets get into it!

Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation: This is by far the best drugstore foundation I have ever used. Actually, it's one of the best foundations I've ever use period! Not only does it have great coverage, but it blends easily, and stays on all day (a definite plus because of my oily skin); just remember to use a bit of powder after application.

Rimmel Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder: Another great drugstore product. This powder works ten times better at keeping me matte than the Chanel powder I was previously using (I couldn't believe it!). I use the shade Transparent (#001). This way I get the shine control without any additional coverage or "cakeyness".

Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder: I love to use this powder as backup and for touch-ups. By backup I mean that if I'm going out for the night, I'll lightly dust this on my T-zone over my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. This powder could leave a white-cast; so when I say lightly I mean lightly! Nonetheless, it will totally keep you matte.

Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer: I've been using this product for what seems like forever. I think I might be on my third tube of this stuff! Although it's not great at concealing… it does wonders as an under-eye highlighter! I just love how it can highlight, yet seamlessly blend into your skin-tone (nobody likes the reverse panda eye look…).

NARS Laguna Bronzer: My holy grail bronzer! I can't imagine my life without it (it's so well loved I couldn't include an picture of it open). This products is amazing for contouring (despite it having tiny gold specks). I find that it is totally worth the price, especially since you get a great product that will last you a while.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Natural Beauty: I'm not really one to wear blush, but man do I love this one! One word, pigmentation. It's the perfect color for my light-medium skin-tone, it blends like a dream and it stays put!

Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette: I basically haven't put this palette down since I got it! I love how most of the colors are matte compared to the Naked 1,2, & 3 palettes. It is the most practical for everyday looks. And, I'm totally in love with Venus (I use it to highlight under my brows & in the tear-duct area).

NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Via Veneto: This is the blackest eyeliner I have ever owned! It literally glides on and does not budge. It's the only thing I use to tight-line (apply to the upper water-line) my eyes. Plus, its retractable!

Benefit They're Real! Mascara:  An absolutely amazing mascara! It lengthens and volumizes, but most of all it hold the curl of my stubborn straight eyelashes. Oh, and did I mention that it washes off with no problem (unlike Maybelline's The Rocket Mascara).

Stila Long Wear Lip Color in Daring: I have to say that this is probably my favorite lip product! It is creamy, but matte, and very long wearing. It actually stays on all day, no joke! I especially love to wear it with my darker clothes.

Covergirl Outlast Lipstain in Plum Pout #425: I have no idea why these lipstains aren't more popular… I happen to think they're very cool. They're just like a marker, so you have a lot of control and precision. And, they really are long wearing. This particular shade I love to layer with the Stila in Daring to achieve my ideal "vampy" shade.
