Holy Grail: The Products I Cannot Live Without

Being a beauty blogger since 2010, I’ve tried, tested and loved so many beauty products. While I like trying out different products every now and then, there are still few exceptions, ofcourse. 

Here are the products that have earned a special place (almost permanent) in my makeup kit. Seriously, these are my “i-cannot-live-without” makeup goodies! I normally hoard them or repurchase as soon as I ran out of these!


HOLY GRAIL PRODUCTS



• NATURACTOR FACE COVER FOUNDATION •


I cannot live without my Naturactor Face Cover Foundation! It’s the best cream foundation I’ve ever tried. I have three of these on my makeup kit and I use them every single day! 
I just love how it brightens up my undereye areas and covers imperfections on my face. They blend so nicely on skin, and it looks so damn gorgeous on photos! 

151 is my skintone shade but I always reach for 140 because I like lighter shade to conceal and highlight my undereye areas! I love it bigtime! 


• KATE TOKYO POWDERLESS FOUNDATION •


This one is the only foundation that works in cleaning up the edges of my eyebrows whenever I shape them. It has the right consistency, neither too thick nor runny, and makes my eyebrows really well-defined! 

It’s also a great foundation to use on my face. I can use it with or without setting my face with powder! I rarely spend a thousand on foundation, except for Kate Tokyo!

By the way, my perfect shade is OC-C. I also would like to emphasize that among all the liquid foundations I’ve tried, this is the only one that doesn’t oxidize on me.



• BECCA EVER-MATTE PORELESS PRIMER •


The most expensive makeup I purchased this year! I’m a cheap, drugstore woman!  But this primer is soooo good, I cannot resist not spending money on it! I have tried several primers, from drugstore to high-end, but this one is, so far, the best one for oil control!

I received a sample size of this primer from a seller in shopee and I was really blown away with how it controls the oil on my face. Thumbs up! 

Though, if you have dry patches or have dry skin, this is not the primer for you. You might want to try Loreal Magic Blur, it’s like a primer and moisturizer in one. I like it too.


• EB ADVANCE LIP AND CHEEK TINT •


I love how EB Advance is stepping up its game. This EB Advance Lip and Cheek tint is the bomb! For years and years, Sophie Pink Cream has been my favorite liquid cheek blush, but when this came along, I have not even touched the tube of my sophie pink cream anymore! 
I got this because in a one segment in KrisTV, Ellen Adarna seriously raves on this product. According to her, she has tons of this on her makeup kit. 

It was really good, easily to blend and very long lasting! I like this even more than the Lip and cheek tints from The Body Shop and Benefit.


• 3W CLINIC PROFESSIONAL POWDER •


It is super affordable and yet works really well on me! I seriously hoard this baby whenever I get coupon codes on shopee. 
I cannot live without it, I cannot imagine a day without it! I think I still have 3 tubs of it on my kikay kit!


• KATE TOKYO EYEBROW GEL •


Trust me when it comes to eyebrow products! I have tried tons of eyebrow products, and I have to say that this is the only eyebrow gel that I keep on repurchasing!
I like it way better than Majorlica Majorca, Etude House or Mac Brow set combined! LOL. It lightens up my eyebrows while taming it!  


• GATSBY POWDERED OIL SHEET •


My sister loves the original version of Gatsby Oil Sheet, but I prefer the one that has powder in it. 
I like how it makes my skin matte plus I also use it to mattify my lipsticks.  It makes my lipstick transfer-free and stays on longer on my lips. 



• BIORE CLEANSING WIPES AND CLEANSING OIL•


My Holy Grail makeup removers for kissproof, bulletproof, waterproof products! It’s a bit pricey, but hey, it works really, really well in removing all my makeup! 
I absolutely love the Biore Cleansing wipes especially when I’m doing blogpost on lip swatches of kissproof products, it’s the only makeup remover wipes that can remove la splash, menow kissproof, la girl matte and colourpop ultra matte in a jiffy. 
However, for everyday makeup remover, I use my Biore Cleansing oil. It works so well in removing my makeup, even waterproof mascara. I also noticed that my skin has gone better ever since I started using this! I really love it.

If you’re a heavy makeup wearer, you gotta try this!


• VEET HAIR REMOVAL CREAM AND SCHICK INTUITION •


Okay, seriously, this is something I cannot live without! My legs are quite hairy, and don’t look attractive when I’m wearing shorts. I like Veet because it’s quick and easy to use! 
For underarm hairs, I like using this product. I don’t use epilator nor wax my hair because I have no patience with it. Intuition by Schick is a razor that comes with a built-in moisturizer.
