The other night I was watching Mrs. Melissa M on YouTube. Yes – even I watch more than my fair share of YouTube beauty videos!
I love her channel, and watch all her videos. This video, in particular, was so much fun.
The title was really a kick – Makeup products they’ll have to pry from my cold dead hands. I thought it was so funny, and it caught my eye. About halfway through the video, I realized I had listed quite a number of products that she loves and are her holy grails that I have never tried.
This video is inspired by the wonderful Mrs. Melissa M on YouTube. Definitely make sure that you go over and watch her video. You’re going to see some more great products that are loved by a couple of us here on YouTube.
The first product she talked about is the Elf Poreless Putty Primer. I use to use this for the longest time, and I really do love it. If you’re not familiar with it, it’s kind of a thick primer, and it fills your pores in and provides a perfect canvas for your makeup.
This really does smooth out the skin and fill in your pores; however, I have found another primer very similar that I prefer. The Hard Candy Smoothing Primer Balm, it’s very similar. I find this one to be a little bit more hydrating.
I’ve recently fallen back in love with ABH Eyeshadow Primer. This is great for us over 50 gals because it’s very opaque, and it does a great job at covering up all the lines and discolorations in my lid, which I really appreciate.
The one thing that I’ve noticed I have to be careful with what this primer is that it is a little bit thicker, so I have to make sure I use just a small amount, or my eyelids start to look a little heavier and crinklier.
You’ve probably heard a lot about the Sydney Grace Enduring Love Palette. I know this is a favorite of so many people. I can tell you I like it, but it hasn’t quite tickled the right spot for me yet.
The formulas are lovely; they blend out beautifully. This palette has a beautiful neutral colorway with a few pops of color. I feel like the look it created today was very beautiful, but I’m still not in love with this palette.
My absolute favorite product from this whole makeup look is the No. 7 Lift & Luminate Triple Action Serum Foundation. How did I not know about this, and why isn’t everybody screaming from the rooftops about this foundation.
It looks skin-like and gives the skin just the most beautiful soft glow. It’s at a drugstore price, so if you’re casting around for a great foundation, I can tell you this is a real big winner with me!
It does a great job at giving me just enough to warm up my skin tone without looking too orangey, which I don’t like at all. I am a big fan of this bronzer, and Melissa is too!
It’s a more cool tone pink, the Colourpop Super Shock Blush is a great formula; it’s almost like a cream to powder blush. It puts the most beautiful color on the cheeks.
The Maybelline Lipstick – Born With It is such a pretty color of pink lipstick. This is another perfect choice for Spring! It’s such a light and fresh cool tone pink, that is just beautiful on so many skin tones.
The Maybelline Color Sensational Lipcolor has such a creamy formula that provides a beautiful finish to any makeup look!
