Fun Facts Friday: Top Five Favorite Make up Products

So I am a make up junkie.  I use a mix of high end and low end brands because I have super sensitive skin and prefer the way my face looks when it isn't breaking out in huge zits or flaking off or covered in blotchy red patches.  So I'll link you to my favorites...

1.  Smashbox Photo Finish Face Primer Adjust

Available through ULTA
I have been using this for a week to help fight the great make-up migration and correct some of my redness.  Between this and my foundation, my skin looks GORGEOUS.  The green color is off-putting at first but it fades as soon as you apply it, it disappears along with redness and also helps fill in the gaping pores of my nose.

2.  Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Foundation in I'm pure 4 sure

Available through ULTA
I try not to think about how much money I spend on this product but seriously it is the best thing ever.  I love the pump bottle.  My skin looks fantastic and one pump does my entire face.  It doesn't break me out and it includes sunscreen with UVA protection.  Awesome stuff.

3.  Bare Minerals Brush in Beauty

Available through ULTA
I am a fan of bright, pigmented blushes.  I've had this container FOREVER.  Sanitary issues from keeping it for so long aside, I love this stuff.  It has a lot of pigment so I only use a small amount on a big fluffy brush.  Blends super well.  Awesome.

4. E.L.F. Eyelid primer and eye liner sealer

Available through E.L.F. which is carried at walmart and kmart
This is the best $3 I have ever spent on a make up product.  Full stop.  the primer keeps my eye shadow from moving and the sealer takes my liquid eye liner from a source of frustration to something that won't budge at all.  I would not recommend letting the sealer drip in your eye though.  It burns line nobody's business.

5.  Maybelline Volume Express "The Falsies" Mascara- Black Drama

Available at most drugstores or at ULTA
I go through a tube of mascara in a month.  There are high end mascaras that I have LOVED but I just cannot justify spending $17 a month on mascara and this tube of $7 wonderful stuff that works just as well as most of the super expensive brands.

And there you have it.  My top five make up products.  I used black liquid eyeliner but I haven't been able to find one that I really and truly like since I stopped selling mark cosmetics so if you have a suggestion, let me know.  :)  my eye shadow changes on a daily basis, basically, in case you were thinking "that's weird.  she wears primer with no eye shadow."  I'm sure you desperately wanted to know all of this but whatevs.  Maybe you'e learned something about fun make up products.
