What I Buy Again and Again: Beauty Edition

Sephora Long Lasting Eyeliner High Precision Brush

So I know I've said it before, and you will surely hear it again, but I really, really love makeup. Though many of my coworkers may disagree with me (it's hard enough getting to work on time in appropriate clothes, forget about hair and makeup), I do love wearing it and trying out new products. I'm constantly reading blog posts about the newest product or a brands line that is blowing up everywhere, and now I've even been lucky enough to integrate it into my work lately (it has made my obsession pretty much skyrocket). Anyway, regardless of the list of new products in my head that grows with every Sephora trip, there ARE a few products that I absolutely love, and find myself actually buying again when it runs out.

The POREfessional: I'm a true believer in primer. It creates such a smooth surface for your foundation to just glide right on...and this primer feels like silk on your skin.

Hot Mama blush: I actually got this as a sample in a Birchbox quite a while ago, and am down to the last particles of dust. It's a perfect peachy/coral-y shade that I think would look good on anyone. It's not too much, but just enough.

Benefit Brow Zings: In my post college years, I've become obsessive with my brows. They can make or break your face. I don't splurge on many beauty appointments, but brows is a different story, I will ONLY go to Benefit Brow Bar now. No matter who I get, they do an awesome job. So no surprise I'm obsessed with their brow kit. 

Sephora Liquid Liner: Since my competition dance days when I perfected my liquid liner cat eye at the age of 12, I've never gone back. Liquid liner is the only way to go, and this one is cheap, simple and looks great.

Amazing Concealer: Last but not least, my number one favorite product. Sadly, I have not been blessed with great skin. I am always stressed and my face likes to let everyone know, especially since moving to NYC. But this stuff, its so concentrated it just takes a tiny dot and will cover anything. I swear by it. Seriously.

Sorry I got so wordy! Get me on this topic and it's hard for me to shut up...

Do you have any products you buy over and over?



  1. ok, you know that i am USELESS with it comes to makeup ( i consider putting a hat on to be enough) but i DID splurge and get BB cream...so do you have a comparison bt your primer/concealer tag-team and BB cream for the hopeless? Also, i have also started TRYING to let me eyebrows grow back in (one looks like the mcdonalds arch, the other more like a check mark) but it's slow going...advice? sorry for the ABSURDLY long post! haha xoxo

  2. Interesting - I've never used primer before but maybe I should check it out! Also, definitely NEED to go to the Benefit Brow Bar here.

  3. Urban Decay palettes. As you know, I am OBSESSED with eye color... and these are BEAUTIFUL. I have 1 and 3... debating getting the trifecta! $50, but use a sephora 20% off... and you're golden.
