If you want me 6 feet under, wipe out every one of these beauty products and make them Inaccessible to me. I will grab the shovel and start digging myself because life without all of these magnificent products wouldn’t be worth living. I fell in love with the beauty industry when I was 14 years old and our love affair has only flourished and strengthened since. I went to cosmetology school when I was 18 years old and from there dove face first into the beauty industry as a makeup artist and later a skin care expert. I have been caking on makeup and slathering my body with glorious shit for almost 24 years. I think that makes me a professional consumer and critic, don’t you? I can say with extreme confidence I know beauty better than I know anything. I know my shit, TSPeeps, and you are lucky enough to reap the benefits.
Cosmetics I Can’t Live Without
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. The best tinted moisturizer on planet earth. Don’t let the name fool you. This tinted moisturizer packs quite a punch and has the power to conceal all the bullshit you want covered up. You want minimal coverage? Use minimal product. You want more coverage? Use more product. This is not your full coverage foundation, though, but it is absolutely the best everyday foundation on the market. I have been using it since Brazilian bikini waxes first became popular. That was a long ass time ago. If this product became discontinued I would nose dive off a building.
Anastasia Brow Pomade. Filling your eyebrows is as important as getting a mammogram. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Pomade is the best brow filling product on the market. I have tried them all. This product allows you to control the amount of drama you want to create and once it is on it ain’t going anywhere. The variety of hues are extensive and one tub lasts a long ass time. Less is more and buy the angled brush for application. It is as important as the product itself. If this product became extinct I would punch myself in the face and run head first into a brick wall.
Nars Laguna Bronzer. A little bronzer over my foundation and powder completes my look and adds some life and color. Less is more. Laguna is hands down the most beautiful and natural shade of bronzer out there and the application is flawless. I have been an addict since 2003 and if I couldn’t get my fix of it for whatever reason I would tuck and roll out of a moving vehicle.
The Beauty Blender. I am not going to say anything other than this is my favorite beauty product of all time and if they stopped making them I would drown myself in a tub full of my own tears.
Amazing Cosmetics Concealer. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! This concealer makes me look like I have slept when I haven’t and it hides my God damn dark circles like a frigging champ. If I couldn’t get my hands on this stuff I would die of a broken heart.
Mac Lipstick In Japanese Maple. What would I do if they discontinued this perfect nude lipstick? I would discontinue my life, that’s what I would do. This S.O.B. has been a staple for years and at any given moment I could find it at the bottom of my purse and bebop it on my lips. It is perfection.
Loreal Million Lashes. I love this mascara more than Tammy Faye Bakker loved all mascara and from looking at old pictures of her that is a shitload. Million lashes is the best everyday mascara in the galaxy. Its application wand is magical and deserves to be considered for living sainthood for all of its Godly good work and deeds. If Walgreens rid its shelves of this mascara I would rid this world of me because I would rather join Tammy in the heavens than walk this earth without Loreal’s miraculous mascara on my lashes.
New Favorites I Don’t Know How I Lived Without
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. Um. This is where it’s at if you are looking for a flawless finished look. I sought out for an alternative translucent powder because I wanted something with more coverage and setting power. Found it!
MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick in Pure Pout. Holy amazing frigging lipstick, Batman. If you are in the market for a creamy, pigmented peachy nude lipstick that is sexy and versatile this is the color. The consistency and coverage of Mineralize lipsticks is absolutely perfect making this lipstick line by MAC my new favorite.
Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop Blusher in First Love. New favorite blush alert! This is a two in one blush. You swish the outer shade up the cheek bones and pop the middle shade onto the apple of the cheek. It is gorgeous! There are a handful of different shades and I fully intend on purchasing more of them.
Dior Ultra-Gloss in Mirrored. Why in the Sam hell have I never bought a riot lip gloss before? I am so pissed at my past self. The texture and consistency is smooth and thin and the shine, sparkle and color of Mirrored is absolutely beautiful. Rose and peach hues with a bronze sparkle inside a lip gloss tube is seriously all I will ever need in this life to make me happy (actually that was complete and utter bullshit, I need way more than that but it certainly helps).
