Top 10 Beauty Products


I was recently tagged by two lovely ladies; Danielle at Bloomin' Beauty and Yuliya, you may know her as Cutegingerbread :)  My top 10 beauty products include those I enjoy using the most and see myself repurchasing for many years to come.

1. Clarisonic Mia
Best beauty investment I have made this year. It isn't cheap but it is something I will use for many years, so in the long run it's worth it. My skin has seriously benefited from using this amazing tool. My face is much clearer, much much less acne-prone, softer and looks healthier overall. Mia has also helped a lot with annoying blackheads!


 2. Dior Amber Diamond
Amber Diamond is my HG highlighter, in case you didn't already know. I just love the glow it gives to my face without being shimmer overload. Read my review here.


 3. Revlon Photo Ready
HG foundation, hands down. I always say this foundation was made with me in Revlon's mind. I love this stuff, it gives my face the perfect coverage, concealing my imperfections, and has a beautiful, matte "Photo-ready" airbrushed kind of finish. I think it's my 3rd bottle, now that says a lot!


4. Too Faced Natural Eye
My HG eye palette. I love all the colors, the consistency, the finishes. Read my review here.


5. Benefit Bella Bamba
I never thought Bella Bamba would get this much love from me one day but it does! It's the perfect shimmer baby pink/coral blush. Also does a bit of highlighting with its shimmer content, so I usually don't wear an additional highlighter when using it.

6. Illamasqua Lover
Lover is my all time favorite HG blush. This shade has my name all over it. I wear this blush year around because I cannot get enough of it. Pigmentation is amazing! Read my review here.

 7. Too Faced Chocolate Soleil
 Chocolate Soleil became my favorite bronzer in such a short time. It's the perfect bronzer color for my complexion, looks very natural. And an added bonus, it smells just like chocolate! Read my review here.


8. Shu Uemura Painting Liner in Black
HG gel liner. Stays put until I want it vanished. Perfect pitch black color, great pigmentation. The formula makes application a total breeze. Read my review here.

9. Urban Decay Primer Potion
This product is seriously heaven-sent. It's a must have in every eye make-up addict's collection. 

10. L'oreal Voluminous
My favorite mascara of all time. I just cannot go wrong with it. My eye lashes are already long but I can't ever turn down a product that makes them longer, fulled and blacker...which is Voluminous :)


I'm not tagging anyone in particular because this tag has been around for a while, and probably those I'd tag have already done it! :) If you feel like doing this tag, go for it! I'd love to read everyone else's top 10 beauty products!

Wishing all my U.S. friends a very happy 4th of July, and thanking all those for defending our nation! ♥

  2. Great list! I love the Mia - it truly is a skin-saver. I only have one blush from Illamasqua, Tremble, but it's totally turned me on to the brand and left me wanting more!
