RARE BEAUTY | Kind Words Matte Lip Liner
Lip liner and lip gloss is my go-to combination lately and the shade range from Rare is so delectable. This ultra-skinny liner glides on effortlessly but has great staying power.
CLINIQUE | Pop Plush Creamy Lip Gloss
This is aptly named as it is such a plush, cushiony lip gloss that almost feels like a lip oil. Do yourself a favor and get this in the Black Honey Shade instead of the classic waxy lipstick of Blackhoney; same color, and way better formula.
TOWER 28 | Oneliner Multi-Liner - Fill Me In
I love this liner - it's so creamy and glides along your lips. There is zero tugging and I swear the shades are universally flattering.
MAKE UP FOR EVER | Aqua Lip - c Rosewood
I thought this product had been discontinued so imagine my delight when I realized they just condensed the shade offering! This aqua-gel-liner is thick and grippy, and stays on for AGES. I love shade 14c rosewood for a my lips but better look.
ICONIC LONDON | Lustre Lip Oil - She's A Peach
This is a special one. The applicator spins as it glides across your lips and leaves the most subtle wash of color. I love the peach and the cherry, scented to match the tint. The formula is delectable and leaves my lips feeling hydrated and smooth.
YVES SAINT LAURENT | Candy Glaze Lip Gloss Stick - Flashing Ros
This lipstick-lip gloss hybrid is the best of both worlds. Recently reformulated, I still love this iconic lippie. The packaging is lush and luxe, the scent is an addictive papaya, and the formula gives a fairly pigmented wash of color that feels like a slippery balm. I have Flashing Rosé and an eyeing a few more.
GIVENCHY | Le Rouge Interdit 24h Hydrating Lip Balm - N- Revealing Color
This is reminiscent of the cult-favorite Dior Lip Glow balms. It is a traditional waxy balm, but it isn't as drying, at least not on me. No.10 looks black in the tube but adjusts to a PH-perfect shade of berry. Many other brands have tried to achieve a PH berry and they've all looked magenta on me, this is the first to give the perfect wash of plum I've been hunting for. The packaging is also, thankfully, divine.
For the most part I am not a lipstick person. But sometimes I make exceptions. This is a classic by hydrating formula with the perfect amount of opacity. I only have one shade, First Sari, a neutral berry, but it is just gorgeous and I reach for it when I want something with a little but more oomph but without that heavy lipstick feel.
While I normally shy away from plumping glosses (I'm a wuss), this one isn't painful and definitely makes the lips look plush and plump. I love the watermelon color for warmer months.
If you don't have an SPF lip balm in your purse at all times what are you doing? I get it - most SPF lip balms taste like literal sunscreen, but I'm happy to report the Cay Skin one is an exception. Not only does it provide sun protection but the balm itself is nourishing and comfortable. I have all three, and use them regularly.
I am going to put this here and with skincare because there is a tinted version coming out I cannot wait for. This is such a good lip balm. I keep it on my vanity for when I do my skincare and just adore it. It has the signature creamsicle scent and keeps my lips moisturized for hours.
This is the plushest cushiony, sumptuous, most comfortable lip oil I have ever used in my life. I have three of colors, and Bliss is my ride-or-die. It makes my lips look kissable and plump, and I will never not have this in my arsenal. *Update - due to the "clean" nature of this formula, all my glosses went bad in under a year. I still think this is a stand-out gloss, but be mindful of how long it will last you.
This is, hands down, my favorite lip oil. It is similar to the Ami Colé, but sheerer a bit more slippery. The scent is just like an apple jolly rancher, and I cannot get enough. The tint is a sheer deep red that looks universally flattering on just about everyone.
Okay, hear me out. This formula is actually really incredible. It's very long-lasting while being incredibly comfortable on the lips. The color "All My Love" is a rich, yummy red-brown color that I think is universally flattering. The scent is sugary vanilla - like cake batter, which I normally hate but somehow it doesn't bother me. I have my eyes on the hot pink shade next; the others don't look particularly worthwhile.
My latest lip treatment obsession, this citrus-scented liquid balm is hydrating, comfortable, and fortifying. It has a hint of shimmer that is nearly indescribable. The leaf-shaped applicator is highly mobile, making the application a breeze.
This went viral for good reason. The slipperiest, butteriest, shiniest lip hybrid I've ever tried, the glossy balm makes your lips look sensuous and shiny. The packaging is luxe and fancy, and the slim packaging fits in any clutch.
This is a lovely, cushy tinted lip balm. I only have one shade, Blessed, which is a bright spring pink. The formula is soft, and you can build up the color quite a bit before it starts to look cakey.
First, this is more of a tint. Manage your expectations on that. But it's a really dang good one. The color starts super shiny, and once that wears off it leaves a beautiful long-lasting stain behind. The formula doesn't dry my lip out as it wears off, so if you, like me, such at reapplication, then this could be fore you!
This is the plushest, most comfortable lip gloss/balm hybrid. It is as nourishing as it is comfortable and provides a stunning glossy shine. It wears off fairly quickly, but for a gloss, this is not surprising. My lips feel soft and hydrated after wearing this. I love nearly apricot, nearly rose, and nearly berry.
If you like lipsticks that feel like lip balms and give you a kiss of color like you just ate a popsicle, then you'll love this formula. It's comfortable, you can apply it without looking, and the colors are various. Can't mess it up, which I love.
I LIVED in this last summer. It truly does make it look like you just ate a popsicle. The stain lasts quite a long time and never feels drying. I love putting this on before I go to the beach and not having to worry about it.
A great classic, creamy lipstick formula. Similar to the Merit (below), it is a touch smoother, which more color payoff. I definitely need to prep my lips to wear this, and my lips can feel dry after it wears off, but that is to be expected. This formula is very long-lasting and leaves a soft even stain of color as it wears off, which I love. Oasis, Dahlia, and Tropic are favorite shades.
I own four of these. The formula is just...indescribable. Which is not helpful, is it? It is a creamy, serum-like balm with a decently pigmented, but not opaque, color. The packaging is cheap and awful, but I don't care because the formula is that good.
This subtly tinted lip balm is darn cute. The shade Vanilla Beige nearly matches my natural lip color. I particularly enjoy the curved applicator that hugs your lips as you apply. Is it my favorite lip balm of all time? No. I like the Rhode and the Naturium better (not sold a Sephora), but this one is a best seller for a reason.
This iconic custom color lip balm has been a beauty blogger favorite for YEARS, and I am still not tired of it. They keep releasing new shades but my go-to is Rosewood.
The perfect lip gloss does not exist? Bullshit. It does, and this is it. New Romantic is the nude pink gloss of my goddamn dreams. Free Spirit is a nude beige color so luscious it will make you cry. The formula is, and I cannot stress this enough, NOT STICKY. It's sumptuous and lush, and hydrating. Just buy it already and thank me later.
The packaging alone is worth the price tag for this stunning lipstick. It instantly transports you to Old Hollywood. I love the sheer formula, and my favorites are shades 205 Hold Your Man, 110 Marguerite Jade, 603 Marina Violet, and 25* Goldie Red.
Do you remember the Bite Beauty Multi Sticks? I loved them and miss them but always felt they were a little bit dry, so imagine my delight when I found this. It is small, user-friendly, gives a subtle but buildable wash of color, but it is also very hydrating and dry-skin friendly.
This is a newbie but already a fast favorite. The easy-to-blend formula sets and lasts all day but never looks cakey or dry. I love the shade Kirsty, a dusty rose taupe, and the SPF 50 is a delightful bonus.
At first I was not sure if I would like this. Some people reported it emphasized their skin texture and was glittery. This was not the case for me. If you like the Westman Atelier highlight you'll like these. They are a bit dryer on first touch and don't blend as easily as other formulas but I find the finish to be very flattering and radiant. I loved the bronze shade all over my face for summer and have still reached for the mauve as we move into cooler months.
One of my favorite bronzer formulas was released in blush form and you bet your booty I stocked up. This dry-skin friendly blush is soft, plumping, and smooth. It can wear off after a few hours, so longevity is not its key selling point. Rather, I reach for it for its soft but buildable colors and supremely comfortable formula.
If the Rare Beauty blushes are too pigmented for you but you liked the applicator and formula, you'll love the Nars Afterglow. These blend like a dream and feel like a gel-cream upon application but actually dry down and stay put. The colors are much more sheer than the Rare, but still buildable.
Oh, man. I did not have high expectations for this blush. And yet, it has stolen my heart and become one of my favorite cream blushes I have ever used. It's just incredible. It is creamy, easy to blend, and dries down to a natural finish that doesn't budge. The shade Pinky Promise is the *perfect* pink. I also love Sandalwood Swirls. The packaging isn't my favorite, but it works better than most tube products I have.
If you want the Kulfi blush but you prefer a stick formula, this is it! Just as creamy and blendable, just as long-wearing and stunning...this blush is something different. I have shades Dune and Spice and love them both but particularly love Dune.
Yes, this is a viral TikTok product you have probably seen non-stop. Is it worth it? Yes. Just, simply, yes. It is SUPER pigmented. A pinprick of color is enough for each cheek. I prefer the "dewy" shades over the matte. My favorites are Hope, Worth, and Encourage. They are easy to blend, very long-lasting, and have a natural finish.
I am about to sound like a broken record, but this blush formula is unbelievable. It is blendable, delivers stunning color, and gives a subtle blurring effect that makes your skin look like glass. I have Rose N Brunch as well as Jubilee and adore them both! They are, thankfully, fragrance-free.
This blush formula is one of the most unique I have ever used. It has a tackiness to it straight out the pan that helps it stay in place, but it is still very blendable. But it doesn't budge! My dry, sensitive skin loves this cream blush deeply. I have the shades heliotrope, foxglove, and dahlia. This blush is refillable, too, and the packaging is ::chef's kiss::.
This is a long-time love that is finally available at Sephora. Stick formulas are tricky, but this blush finds that happy medium between blendable and long-wearing. My favorite color is Chouchette.
I used to own this blush in like five colors and then (stupidly) purged all five to a friend long ago. I missed them a lot and repurchased two - Nude Pop and Heather Pop. The formula is unique; it is a gel powder that almost feels like a cream and wears as long as a powder. It is an excellent dupe for the Mac Glow Play blush.
I am a cream blush girl, but this radiant formula has my heart. This finely milled dream blush has a subtle sheen. When I use it, I apply an even, light dusting across my cheeks, and it somehow gives the effect of blush, bronzer, and highlight. It is my go-to when I want to look effortlessly radiant. Brilliant Nude is my favorite shade of this formula, but they're all stunning. I recently purchased the shade "At Night" - a gorgeous brick red, and holy heck, is it an ideal winter shade. It is also fragrance-free.
You already know and love the original shade of this powerhouse (or maybe you don't, but you should) and I was thrilled when they created a bronze shade. This product is just so versatile - I mix into my moisturizer on no makeup days, add it to my foundation in the summer, or wear it as a classic liquid bronzer.
If you're looking for a matte, natural-looking bronzer with an expansive shade range, you should take a look at this one from Haus Labs. It has a great range of not only inclusive tones but also undertones, so if you have neutral or olive undertones and find it hard to find bronzers that don't make you look orange, this one could be a great fit. It blends easily and wears well.
If you're fair like me and struggle to find cool or neutral-toned bronzers, I am thrilled to report this does the job and it does damn well. The pan is also so huge it'll take a lifetime to finish it.
This cool-toned contour stick is neutral enough to use as a bronzer if you want, but it contours beautifully as well. It is super blendable. I am not a huge stick formula fan, but this contour is magic. I wear shade biscuit.
If mini things are more your style and you don't want to be as spendy as the Westman Atelier, the Milk is the way to go. It offers a wide shade range, and the formula is easy to use and very blendable. I wear "toasted".
This may be my perfect powder bronzer. It gives a soft, radiant glow without any noticeable shimmer and zero glitter. The formula is a cream-powder hybrid that blends easily but stays put. I have reached for it every day since I bought it a few weeks ago.
I prefer a matte bronzer (mainly because most bronzers on the market that have shimmer look ridiculous). Still, this radiant, luminous version changed my mind. It has a stunning soft glow, and it is easy to build. I wear shade Nude Bronze Light, but after seeing and swatching these in person, I think I could get away with the two darker shades. It is also fragrance-free, hard to find in bronzes, but a must for me.
I finally found the best cream bronzer on the market. Okay, that may be exaggerating as I have not tried all the cream bronzers on the market, but I think this one is the best. Fragrance-free, blendable, has it all. Unlike other cream bronzers I have tried in the past, this one wears well throughout the day. I wear the lightest shade, giving me the perfect amount of warmth.
This might be the best matte powder bronzer I have ever used. The silicone-infused formula glides on the skin and gives you that signature "airbrushed" look. Blending is a dream with this beauty. I wear shade 2. It is fragrance-free and refillable.
Okay, so this is a highlighter, but I LOVE using it as a one-and-done, all-over product. The peachy shade, Peau De Peche, works for me as blush/bronzer/highlight all over my cheeks, and I loved popping it on my eyes to finish.
This is not your 2012 highlighter - she is finely milled and shines like the fucking starts but somehow manages not to emphasize texture too much. I love dusting this on my cheeks when I want to blind people. I have all shades (except flaunt) and adore them all.
I feel like everyone's dream highlighter does not shimmer or sparkle but simply makes their skin GLOW and has a wet look. This is that. This simple, transparent balm gives your skin the perfect wet look glow. The translucent color is everything you've ever wanted a cream highlighter to be.
Somewhere between a bronzer, blush, and highlighter, this multi-purpose duo is a does-it-all multitasker. I have the shade Moodlight. The lightweight powder formula makes people look radiant as if a professional light crew is following them around. I love it immensely. I also LOVE to buy TF during the Sephora sale bc she is pricey.
This could be in skincare as well - but I primarily use it as a highlighter or all over under foundation. It's a beautifully hydrating moisturizing highlight with finely milled shimmer. I can (and do) often wear it alone to make my face just look radiant and healthy. It is fragrance-free and just lovely.
I was skeptical about this product but decided to give it a try last summer and am thrilled I did. It really does set your makeup without changing the finish.
I cannot live without eye primer. My lids are simply too oily. This is my most re-purchased makeup product ever. I have lost count of how many tubes I have gone through. It gives me 8+ hours of creaseless wear with any formula. Love.
If you want to set your makeup but don't want to make it matte, grab one of these. The ultra-fine powder will set your makeup without sacrificing glow.
I have never been a fan of loose setting powder. This powder is the powder for people who hate powders. It has a slightly shimmering effect to set and blur the skin. While I have dry, sensitive skin, I still get oily throughout the day. This keeps my makeup looking fresh but not baked.
With a cult-like following, this setting powder may be the most purchased item from all of Charlotte Tilbury's line. The signature silicone formula delivers flawless-looking skin, incredible staying power, and an effortlessly blended formula. It is fragrance-free.
Look, for the most part I've been largely underwhelmed by everything I've tried from Merit. That said, I love these. They are reminiscent of the MAC Cosmetics Paint Pots, which are an OG fav, and the shades are surprisingly versatile. I love Social, Brun, and Studio.
This sold out the first time it launched and it haunted me. When they brought it back recently. I snagged it as quickly as I could and have reached for it consistently since. It has a lovely mix of neutrals, shimmers, mattes, and metallics, the formula is a creamy gel powder that blends easily and wears all day.
Speaking of great nude palettes, this is easily one of the best ND launches of all time. You probably don't need both this and the Mario, but if you have to go with one, I think the Natasha is more expansive and versatile. When I travel this is the only eye palette I need to bring.
I really need Kulfi to make more shades of this formula because it is easily the best cream eyeshadow I've ever used. Most people don't need an eye primer with it - that is how well it stays. The color payoff is insane. It blends easily and then dries down and doesn't budge.
Another product that went viral on TikTok for good reason. This stunning shadow topper cannot be captured on camera, the way it looks in person is just indescribable. Perfectly sparkly and shimmering, it catches the light in the most stunning way. I have several shades, but I recommend Space Cowboy and Cosmic to start.
These eyeshadows are so blendable and beautiful! I can't get enough of them. I have several, but Spiked Ginger is my go-to.
A friend decluttered these and sent them my way, and dang it, I hate to admit I love them. I love a cream anything, and this eyeshadow wears beautifully throughout the day. The colors are some of my favorites in my collection, notably Pillow Talk and Oyster Pearl.
This is my most used eye product ever. This multi-use cream pigment is an oily-lid makeup lover's DREAM. I do use eye primer with it because I have trust issues, but 90% of people won't need to. This formula dries down quickly and doesn't budge for 12+ hours. You can use it on lips and cheeks, too. My ride or die colors are Exposed, Celebration, Milky Way, Créme Brule, and Latte.
Okay, I *know* this is called a face palette, but the shade 002 Glitz is the dreamiest color palette for my eyes. All four shades are gorgeous. Catch me wearing this all summer, forever.
Originally released as a limited edition product, I missed it the first time around. I watched with aggressive jealousy as others got it and adored it. Everyone raved about it. The makeup artist who did my makeup for my elopement and wedding reception even did a whole IG story series on all the looks she created with it. So when they finally brought it back, I pounced on it. It is as good and as versatile as everyone says. The pink hues suit my features, and the formulas are creamy and blendable. I'm currently head over heels for this quad and plan to pick up more quads from the brand. I have greenish hazel eyes and think this looks lovely with them, but I bet it would kill on blue or brown eyes.
The quads I own, Nude Dip and Mink Mirage, are just stunning. The versatility of this quad is next level. It is so easy to create day and night looks. Another splurge, but this palette has been one of my most used since I bought it years ago, and it is one pro MUAs swear by.
Easily my most reached-for palette to date, this is precisely what it says it is - a bunch of warm neutral shades. Containing mattes and shimmers (and a primer base), this palette is so damn versatile that it is shocking. The shadows are silky and blend-able, with minimal fallout. If left to only have one eye palette forever, I would be surprised if I didn't pick this one.
Designed for eyes, lips, and brows, these creamy but long-lasting pencils come in a wide variety of colors. I have a handful of the browns and use them primarily as eyeliner, but the formula can be used anywhere. In addition, the shade range is so vast you could easily find a color for every need you have without having to venture to a different brand. A few favorites are Anywhere Caffeine, Limitless Brown, and Completely Sepia.
This is a recent purchase that quickly became a mainstay in my routine. It provides inky black lashes that are whispy and natural looking, but slightly dramatic. It doesn't weigh my lashes down much and doesn't irriate my sensitive eyes.
This brush is huge but it somehow doesn't dispense too much product which is a confusing and delightful feat of engineering. I'm continuing my love affair with brown mascaras and love this one for a natural, chocolate look.
She's thick, she's whipped, she's everything. This delivers dramatic lashes without the weight, and the inky black color is deep and rich. Just all-around love.
An oldie but goodie, now finally available at Sephora, so you don't have to deal with the stupid Glossier order minimum. I prefer the brown shade and reach for it on days I want a super natural, wispy lash.
This is likely my favorite mascara ever. It is the perfect balance of dramatic and natural. The wand has different length applicators on either side, so you can build up the mascara, flip it, and then comb through to spread the lashes. Genius.
