Holy moly guys, it is officially 2019! I am so excited for the new year and wanted my first post of 2019 to be a reflection on my holy grail beauty products for 2019. I had a crazy journey for 2018 when it came to beauty products. I got rid of about 80% of my makeup collection and out of that 80%, these are the products I used the most in 2018. And some of them are super close to reaching pan. I think I am going to try and do a little project pan coming up soon so I can officially use up a lot of the products that I have kept in my makeup collection! So let's get on into my holy grail products of 2018. 


Let's first go over all of my holy grail face products:
  • It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50- I have been using this CC cream forever (been through multiple tubes) and this tube is almost completely gone as well. I have talked about this product so many times in the past and its literally my favorite. It has awesome coverage, smells amazing and includes SPF 50. If you are looking for a light weight foundation, I would highly recommend picking this one up. 
  • Erborian CC Cream High Definition Radiance Face Cream Skin Profector- this stuff is also amazing. I love using this on days where I am in a rush. I just apply some product to my finger tips and just blend all over my face a neck. It gives a light coverage and its perfect for everyday where. 
  • Benefit Porefessional Face Primer: I have also been using this same primer for years. It is one of the best that I have found that really fill in your pores. It also helps make my foundation look better as well. 
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Pressed Powder- I love using this product to set my whole entire face. I use it on top of the Erborian CC cream to set everything into place. It is a translucent powder and does exactly what I need it to do.  
  • Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder- I use this powder to bake under my eyes when I wear concealer. I don't wear concealer too often, but when I do, this powder is perfect to set it. I have been using this powder for years and it's honestly one of the best powders out their. 
  • MAC Sudio Fix 24-Hour Smooth Wear Concealer- when I do wear concealer, it has been this stuff! I like it because it feels really light weight under my eyes. I actually wore this on my wedding day as well! 
  • Kevyn Aucoin The Sculpting Contour Powder- this is by far my favorite contour powder that I have ever used. I have it in the shade light and its the perfect cool tone contour powder for my skin tone. I use it to contour and as a bronzer. I am super close to hitting pan! 
  • Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso- this is one of the prettiest blushes that I have ever owned. I am also getting super close to hitting pan on it as well. Is it such a beautiful peachy coral blush with a little hint of shimmer. Looks so natural and beautiful on the cheeks. 
  • Essence Pure Nude Highlighter- I am someone that isn't into really intense highlight, so this Essence one is a huge hit for me. It gives you such a pretty glow without making it too noticeable. It is super subtle which I love. And it's also less then $5! 



Now onto the eye and lip products!
  • Benefit Precisely, My Brow Pencil- when I got my eyebrows waxed before my wedding, they used this on my eyebrows after and I fell in love. I can't believe I wasn't using this product before! It is nice and creamy so it makes filling in my eyebrows much easier. I need to pick up a full size because I am almost out of this one!  
  • Pixi Brow Gel- I have been loving this to set my brows! It is super affordable and does a great job setting in all the hairs into place. 
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara- I am in love with this packaging on this mascara but I also love the product. The wand makes it so easy to get all of your lashes coated with mascara. It also does a great job at separating the lashes and making them appear longer. One of my favorite drug store mascaras! 
  • MAC Lipstick in Faux- this is one of the prettiest lipsticks in the world. I wear it 90% of the time when I do wear lipstick. It is the perfect brown/pinky/nude and I think it flatters a lot of skin tones!



So those are all of the products that I have been loving and using in 2018. I would love to hear what some of your holy grail products were in 2018. I am so excited for 2019 and can't wait to try out a few more products that I have been having my eye on. I do want to use up a few of these products first, which I will keep you guys updated on!
