Last but certainly not least, are three of my favorite fool proof products: Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Éclat Blur Perfector and Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in shade N° 44, which I discussed in this post here, and Benefit Cosmetic's ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color.
The Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Blur Perfector transforms from a balm into a powder upon application. It is intended to blur imperfections, while creating a transparent, ever so slight rosy-glow effect. It can be used 3 different ways: 1) Alone as an all-over complexion perfector 2) To set makeup 3) As a mattyfying touch up during the day to sweep away any shininess and imperfections. I have combination oily skin, so I personally like to use it as a mattifier throughout the day, applying it only in the T-Zone.
The Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick Lipstick in shade N° 44 is it the perfect soft nude pink color for me, and is by far the most hydrating lipstick I have ever tried. It also has a soft mango scent to it, which is an additional bonus. I cannot wait to try their other colors!
I have tried other brow pencils, powders, and cream-gels before, and Benefit Cosmetic's ka-Brow! Cream-Gel Eyebrow Color is definitely my favorite. What I love about this product is that it allows me to create fuller, yet natural looking brows, very quickly. The cap transforms into a full length brush, which makes this product ideal for those on the go. A little goes a long way with this one, so I would recommend starting off with a light application of this product and then gradually building upon it in order to achieve the look you want.
I am still on the hunt for a good mascara. I have been using Too Faced Cosmetic's "Better Than Sex" mascara for a while and I love the amount of volume and length I am able to achieve with it. However, I find that the original formula begins to flake off onto my under eye area after a few hours, and the waterproof formula is nearly impossible to remove at the end of the day. I just can't win with either formula. If you know of an amazing mascara that will stay put throughout the day, without me needing to use an entire bottle of makeup remover to take it off, I would love to hear about it. Please feel free to share any suggestions in the comments section below.
