Holy Grail Products

Hey everybody! Today I'll be sharing with you my all time favourite products, be it high end or drugstore. This post is a collab with the lovely Rose Mae (you can take a look at her blog here).

THE BALM MARY LOU MANIZER | £17.50 you can buy it here

This is one of the most hyped beauty products let alone highlighting products, and it definitely lives up to the reviews. Mary Lou is a beautiful pale gold champagne with intense pigmentation, which you can wear subtly for an everyday look or glam up for an occasion. It looks absolutely stunning and finishes off the makeup perfectly.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONTOUR KIT | £3.50 you can buy it here

This comes with a bronzer, a highlighter and a blusher - all beautifully soft and pigmented. The bronzer is a cool toned brown, incredible to blend and build up. The highlighter is subtle in comparison to the likes of Mary Lou but has impressive pigmentation considering the price. And it is a beautiful champagne white colour. The blusher is very similar to Sleek's Rose Gold.


I'm pretty sure that, unfortuantely, this palette isn't available anymore. However you can find it on Ebay I believe. After receiving this for my birthday, I haven't been able to stop using it! All of the shades are so stunning, it contains 4 blushes, and a highlight and bronzer. The pigmenation is incredible!

SEVENTEEN FALSIFEYE MASCARA | £6.99 you can buy it here

Abida used this the other day and was so shocked at how good it is. This mascara is phenomenal for lengthening the lashes, so if that is something you struggle with then check this out! It's so inexpensive and comparable to They're Real.

CHANEL LIPSTICK 'MADEMOISELLE' | £25 you can buy it here

Sorry for mentioning this so much recently! Mademoiselle has quickly become my favourite lipstick, it is a beautiful mid pink with a hint of nude brown in it. What differentiates it from the rest of my collection is that its not matte - a lot of my lipsticks are matte or close to it! But Mademoiselle is creamy with a slight gloss to it, but not really shiny.

URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE | £38.50 you can buy it here

Pigmentation!!! Thats what this palette is. Buttery soft, highly pigmented and beautiful shades. If I don't know what eyeshadow to wear I always go to this palette because I know I can't go wrong with it. It is very expensive, but lasts ages because its only eyeshadow, and its very wearable.

What are your holy grail products?

P.S we have made a new instagram under the name @phoebida_ due to lack of engagement on our current account, we were only losing followers because we felt that people only followed us for a follow back. so we have started afresh, and are making a gradual transition onto this new account.
