As I've stated previously, when it comes to makeup, I am one of those people with no brand loyalty. Reasoning behind this is because I feel that it is hard to name just one brand to be HG because I could always find something from a different brand that works better. So instead, I put together a list of product type and my current HG brand(s) specific to that product type. Read on if you're interested :)
Blush (powder): Illamasqua: their powder blushes are super pigmented and long lasting~ I feel they are well worth the money!
Brush: Real Technique // Sigma: love the brushes from these brands because they are of amazing quality and the price is decent~
Concealer: MAC (recently rediscovered the MAC prolongwear concealer and it's quite amazing)
Eyebrow: shu uemura, love the hard 9 formula! Although, it has a very limited colour range~
Eyeliner: still looking, the battle is currently between Koji's liquid eyeliner and shu uemura's gel eyeliner in pen form~~
Eyeshadow: Maybelline // Urban Decay (I'm thinking about specific palettes here)
Finishing powder: Hourglass, check out their Ambient lighting powder, please!
Foundation: Guerlain // Bourjois
Highlighter: The Balm
Lipgloss: Buxom // Tony Moly
Lipstick: Too Faced // Chanel
Lip Treatment: Vaseline // Laura Mercier
Makeup remover: Juju Cosmetics // shu uemura
Mascara: N/A, I'm still looking for the one...
Nail polish: Essie
Perfume: Jo Malone - HG because it makes customization so easy, and they have a wide range of scent to choose from~
Skin care: Simple // H2O
Tinted Moisturizer: The Balm Cosmetics
I am literally all over the place! It seems I got a lot of different brands covered and of course, I am constantly discovering new brands and products to add to my list. I would be happy if you share with me some of your HG brands and products , so that I may look them up and try for myself. Thanks for reading, and have a lovely evening!
