Makeup I Fell In Love With After The First Try

Makeup I Fell In Love With After The First Try

Whew, it's been forever since I specifically talked about makeup in a blog post! I always miss talking and writing about makeup and having my beauty posts as the highlight of my blog. I still think that they will eventually make a comeback.

So I'd ease back into it with a post about makeup products I have fallen in love with from the first use.
Meaning to say, as soon as I used a certain product I was pretty much wowed and blown away in terms of the quality, the pigmentation, the wearability – everything about these products – I love. Here are makeup products I fell in love with instantly after the first try:

Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

You should've seen this coming. You know my never-ending love for Tarte Shape Tape. It's the one that truly covers everything, from redness to dark circles to dark spots and stays put for hours. It's the only concealer that doesn't set in my lines too much and looks good without any base at all. I do have a few different shades of Tarte Shape Tape in my collection for different purposes but the one I use all the time for under-eye brightening and keeping dark circles at bay is 29N Light Medium.

I remember getting it for the first time at the store using my hard-earned part-time job money and trying it out as soon as I reached home. I instantly fell in love with it and I remember saying something like "I can't wait to wake up tomorrow and put this on my face again" which I did. And yep, you guessed it, I wasn't going anywhere but at least I can watch the TV with my flawless face. 

Shiseido Synchro Skin Self-Refreshing Foundation

I did not expect to love this foundation as much as I do. This is the first Shiseido foundation I have tried and I was blown away instantly after the first application. It looks so natural on the skin but still provides excellent coverage and I don't have to worry about it being too cakey or heavy or if it looks good or not because it will look good. All. The. Time!

I can't help with all the "great for oily skin" reviews on the Sephora app – I had to get it. Once I got it, I can't put it down because it's so good I feel like I can tackle everything. This foundation makes me the happiest and from that moment I only wear it for special occasions because it's expensive but also so good, I don't want to waste it lol. 

Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette

Oof, don't get me started on this one. If you don't have it in your collection yet, what are you doing? Go get it now bestie. This is a MUST-HAVE. Pigmentation, longevity, blendability, color combinations: amazing. Through and through! 

It's the best eyeshadow palette to splurge on. The pigmentation never fails to amaze me every time I use it. I don't even use an eyeshadow primer but the colors and how the shadows wear on my eyes for hours and hours on end and stay looking fresh are just incredible. I have hit pan on most of the mattes, they're my favorite while the shimmers pack a punch and are still perfect for everyday glam.

Maybelline Sensational Cushion Matte Liquid Lipstick

Going bananas with the new Sensational Cushion Matte Liquid Lipstick by Maybelline because of the super flattering shades! I had to get it just because the shade Chesnut On Point particularly caught my eye. I fell more in love with it after the first swatch I did on the back of my hand. 

I said "Alright, let's get it" and I wasn't disappointed. The shade Chestnut On Point is kinda my lips but better, it's so pretty and it has this blurring mousse texture (way different from those drying ones) and feels soft on the lips. It doesn't make my lips dry as well. The formula reminds me a lot of the Peripera Ink Airy Velvet! Comfortable, perfect for go-to and beautiful – I'm keeping this lippie close to my heart.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Keeping it on brand with more Maybelline stuff. This mascara is a staple, she's my best girl and I always count on her. It has been a long time since I fell in love with mascara and that is exactly what happened the moment I tried Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. I struggle to find mascaras that are able to lengthen and volumize, but Maybelline Lash Sensational does both with ease. I LOVE IT!! I've tried some of the most-loved drugstore mascaras out there, and this one is still my favorite and none of them come close to this one. 

It's phenomenal, relevant and has the perfect formula for every single lash out there. I have pretty sad lashes that grow straight and thin but I don't feel that way when I put on this mascara. Let's put it this way: forget false lashes, this mascara will provide you that falsies look using your own natural lashes. It's so good, you can't put it down. 

IN2IT Hair Brush Eyeliner Pen

Winged liner will never go out of style – I said what I said. After all these years, IN2IT Hair Brush eyeliner is still a favorite of mine. It's the one that made all the felt-tip liners look bad for me. I can never use a felt-tip liner anymore ever since I discovered this one in particular. 

Yep, it's true, it's that one eyeliner I always repurchase. It's another staple and it's a hard-to-f*ck-up type of product, y'know what I mean? I hardly had any trouble getting the line that I want with this eyeliner. The brush tip is so precise, it deposits just the right amount of pigment and you will get a clean line every single time. It's one of the best!

That'll do it for this post! These are the 6 makeup products that I instantly fell in love with from the moment I used them. If you have tried any of these products let me know your thoughts about them in the comments! xx
