Which Products, Which Brands

When it comes to certain products, some brands just do it better. They have come up with the perfect blend of ingredients for the perfect blush, lipstick or shadow. I'm rounding up my favorite goodies and brands and sharing them with you.

For blush no one can compete with Tarte. Their Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blushes are buttery, long-lasting, and downright gorgeous. The color range is exceptional and the packaging is perfection. Sure I wouldn't mind for the price to drop, but you definitely get what you pay for.

For lipsticks I'm a MAC lipstick girl through and through. I got my first lipstick a little over a year ago and it's been a love affair ever since. They're creamy, pigmented, easy to apply, and last. The color range is out of this world. I could stare at the display for ages and walk away with a depleted bank account. Everyone needs at least one.

If you're looking for a great cream eye shadow the Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eye Shadow are the best I've come across. Their packaging makes them the easiest shadows to apply ever and the pigmentation is spot on. They have a perfect amount of shimmer and last all day without creasing or budging. If only they were sold in the US...

I definitely don't think Stila gets the props it deserves when it comes to eye shadows. My most used palette is definitely the In the Light palette. Rich, creamy, buttery shadows that look fantastic on the lids all day long. The color range of this palette is amazing and I've written a full review with a look if you're interested in seeing more.

NARS kills it in the tinted moisturizer department. Their Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is dewy, has fantastic coverage, and lasts all day. The shade range is great just as long as you're not an idiot like me and choose the wrong shade the first time. Other bases can't compare to this.

What brands do you go to for certain products?

  1. Really want to try all of these but they're all so expensive in my country. I want to try the Tarte blushes the most though!

  2. I'm trying to work out if it is worth ordering the Tarte blush palette from Sephora - I would have to buy some other stuff to get it delivered to the UK but I am definitely thinking about it! xx

  3. I love that you mentioned the Stila palette - it's one of my favorites, and while it used to get talked about a lot, it doesn't get as much love as it still deserves nowadays!
