This question popped into my head and as usual I thought I would ask you guys. What makeup product or products do you spend your money on?
If you are like me, it is foundation, concealers and highlighters…oh yeah and setting powders! Heck lets just say all makeup products! I love me some foundation and I won’t stop till I find Mr. Right! Yes, I refer to my foundations as ‘he’. You know some of my foundations are matte, so they stick around through thick and thin, through the heat struggles they are not going anywhere. Just like the trust-worthy, stable men out there. Then you get some ‘dewy’ foundations that slip and slide everywhere, you cannot pin them down, not even with your strongest primer, but they match your skin tone so perfectly and blend out like a dream so that makes you reach for them even though you knowwwww they are no good for your friend’s white shirt! Just like some wastemen out there! Haha! Life eh?!
My most expensive foundation has been the Hourglass Foundation Stick (read my thoughts about this foundation here), which I love but drugstore foundations such as L’Oreal and Maybelline are just killing it right now.
I love a good setting powder and I am constantly looking for the setting powder that will set my foundation and under-eye concealer so well in place that only God himself will be able to move the makeup! At first I thought it was an impossible task. But let me tell you that I think I have found the one! Laura came through, and snatched the little edges I had! For now, my search is over. Laura Mercier Translucent Powder (Original) mixed with a little of the Translucent Powder (Medium-Dark) for under the eyes. Then the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder (Medium-Dark) for my face. Let me tell you that my face stays nice and matte throughout the day, even in the stuffy, humid London heat.
I used to spend my coins on highlighters, my most expensive highlighter is the Jaclyn Hill x BECCA Highlighter Palette but do I reach for it now? Nope I reach for my L’Oreal L’or highlighter which was less than a tenner. I love my ABH Glow Kit, but I’m finding that highlighters are getting sameish. I mean how many times can I get excited about goldy-bronze highlight, and I am even limited to certain shades that work with my skin tone. So now when I see a new highlighter or highlighlighter palette all over my instagram feed, I just keep on scrolling. If I’m buying a new highlighter, it better make me glow so much that I am blinding my enemies! If not, I’m not interested!
So guys, what makeup product(s) are you willing to spend your coins on?
