My HG products

Holy grail status is pretty serious here in the beauty world. So I thought I would share with you all some of my HG products. I find it so interesting to see what other people consider HG so I thought you might like to see mine. 

My HG foundation

A few months ago I would have said with no doubt that my HG foundation was Nars Sheer Glow. However in the past couple of months I have discovered a new foundation that I like even more and has replaced Sheer Glow as my HG. It is Covergirl's Trublend foundation in Ivory. 

This foundation matches my very pale skin perfectly (the only foundation I have found so far that achieves this). It gives me great coverage without feeling like I am wearing a full face of foundation. It also lasts a decent time on the skin, leaving me still looking presentable after a full days work. Even better its a drugstore product that doesn't come with an inflated price tag.

My HG Concealer

By far is Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer. If I could only wear one makeup product this would be it because it makes my skin look flawless with little effort. If only they hadn't discontinued it :( So now I am on the hunt for a new one. If anyone knows of a concealer that is similar please let me know.

My HG Bronzer

Ok so this one isn't so original. It's Nars Laguna. What can I say that hasn't been said already? Not much probably. It's a great bronzer and the colour is perfect for contouring (for me).

My HG Highlighter

Is actually a blush. It's BYS's blush in Peach Sundae. When applied to my cheeks it provides a gorgeous sheen. However I think this is soon going to change when I finally get my hands on Dior Amber Diamond! haha

My HG Eyeshadows

And it's not MAC! haha I actually prefer Urban Decay shadows. I love everything about them, the colours, the pigmentation, the texture, the blendability, the cute packaging they come in. They are just gorgeous.

My HG Eyeshadow Primer

Urban Decay Primer Potion. There is a reason this stuff has a cult works and works to perfection. My fave shade is Sin.

My HG Eyeliner

I don't really have a HG fave eyeliner pencil as I find a lot to be mostly the same. But I do have a HG liquid eyeliner, which is the Face Of Australia HD liquid eyeliner pen. It's so easy to apply and very pigmented. I don't use gel eyeliners too often and have only tried 2 brands so no HG status yet.

My HG Mascara

This is a real toughie! I think it would have to be a 3 way tie between Revlon Fabulash, Maybelline Volume Express (Original) and Covergirl Lash Blast Volume. All give great full lashes.

My HG Hair Product

What else?? Moroccan Oil. I LOVE this product. It makes my hair feel the nicest it has ever felt and look really healthy. I know some people have a problem with the smell of this but I actually don't mind it haha

My HG Perfume

This is a tricky one as scents come and go all the time. But the one perfume that I have been wearing for such a long time and am still head over heels for is CK One. It's just a classic and makes me feel instantly fresher and sexier.

My HG Makeup Brushes

Would have to be Sigma. Majority of their brushes I love and they are affordable which makes them even better value.

My HG Lipstick

Again a tie between Revlon Siren (a bright orange) and Estee Lauder Sunlight Coral (a more subdued glossy peach). Can you tell I'm a fan of the orange trend? haha

My HG Lipgloss

Nars lipglosses would probably be my HG as they are pigmented but not sticky at all. Chihuahua is my HG shade. Its a slightly darker version of my lips. MAC Lipglass in Viva Glam V is also a HG.

My HG Nailpolish

4 way tie between OPI Birthday Babe, China Glaze Re-fresh Mint, Ulta3's Lollipop Lilac and Spring Fling. Gorgeous colours and a dream to apply.

What are some of your holy grail products?? If you have a blog I'd love to see you do a post like this or simply leave me a comment :)

I've got a BYS blush in coral, and I'm SO surprised at how good they are!

Need to try that trublend, I'm almightily pale as well and have similar issues. great post!

Hannah said...

I own all the BYS blushes, they are all awesome blushes and so cheap!

Definitely give it a go it's a great foundation. I wear shade 01 Ivory and its pretty much a perfect match, it also blends really well into your skin so even if the shade doesn't match completely it blends in like it does...hence the name I suppose haha

Thanks for your comment :)

Loved reading this, I need to post something similar but I'm still on the hunt for some Holy Grails. The BYS Blushes are awesome, Covergirl Lashblast would definitely be my HG mascara though.

Priyanka said...

I LOVE Urban Decay shadows! :) I'm really not sure of my HG products

Hannah said...

@Megan Thanks :) They are hard to find sometimes and it seems that once you have found them you are still always on the look out for something better haha

@Priyanka Thanks!! I only own 3 inglot shadows and they are bright blues/aqua colours so not for everday but I do love them.

@Vintage Makeup Urban Decay is such a great brand I just can't get over their packaging and the gorgeous colours!!
