Here they are- my top 10 cosmetics, in no particular order...

1. Benefit Cosmetics-Erase Paste Brightening Concealer-
I'm obsessed with finding the right consistency in concealers, it can't be too dry or powdery and they can't be too runny or liquidy because then you really don't get much coverage. This concealer is creamy and really does cover without being too dry in texture. I also like that a little goes a long way. The packaging is cute and it comes with a spatula which really isn't necessary, but whatever-lol

2. Revlon ColorStay Foundation with Soft Flex for oily-combo skin-
 Let me just say that I have SUPER oily skin with large pores and I also live in New Orleans-it's so hot & humid down here! The last thing I want to do in 100 degree weather is wear liquid foundation-I'm more of a powder foundation girl, but I read reviews on Makeupalley about this liquid a few months ago and I tired it-- it's AMAZING! It's not a full coverage liquid-it's a medium coverage. Don't get me wrong, I'm still oily when wearing it but, it's a lot less oily and not as "slick" looking. It also makes my skin look glowy not mask like-ya know =)

3. Anastasia Brow Gel in clear-
I discovered this product a few years ago and it's been my go to everyday product ever since. I know that they make less expensive brow gels, but this one really does get them in control! After wearing other brow gels mid-day you could feel the stiffness of the gel dissapear-but with Anastasia's it last literally ALL DAY and you can run it over a penciled brow or powder and it won't smudge

4. NARS Blush in Taj Mahal-
It's such a gorgeous coral oraney blush that really brightens up dull olive/dark toned skin. A little goes a long way because it's Super pigmented! I tried Orgasm & it's too light for me so this was such a awesome alternative.

5. Chanel's Rouge Allure Lip Gloss'-
OMG talk about decadent! These tubes are heavy black and gold trimmed tubes! The lipgloss it self is so smooth and not sticky but with massive pigment! It's a must for any lipgloss fanatic :)

6. MAC Paint Pot in Painterly-
OK, so what I'm about to say is going to upset some people-lol but, Urban Decay eyeshadow primer IS NOT the best primer-Painterly paint pot is! Ha It's so smooth and the color is a nude/pink that can be worn alone or under shadow too. It really "grabs" the color of any shadow & makes the color more vibrant! They come in other colors too, check out Indianwood-it's a beautiful goldish brown similar to MAC's woodwink shadow.

7. Loreal's Extra Volume Collagen Mascara in Blk.-
Such a great mascara for the price. The brush is so big & full! Makes your lashes POP!

8. e.l.f High Definition Powder Clear-
This really is a nice powder to soak up extra shine or set your liquid with. This is a dupe for Make Up For Ever's high def. powder for only 5 bucks!

9. Eyeko 3 in 1 Cream-
It's a Highlighter, Moisturizer, and eye cream. I order this online from London. It's not expensive at all $20 maybe-it has a pretty pearly hue that's not disco- ballish at all. You can even blend it with your fav. moisturizer or liquid foundation.

10. MAC eyeshadow in Patina-
I use this as an everyday eyeshadow that I can just easily brush on & it looks great on all skintones! Its hard to describe the color but it's sorda grey/brn./tan looks much better in person & awesome when paired up with Vex eyeshadow from MAC as well. When I worked as a makeup artist at MAC people never picked this up until I put it on them & they loved it!
