My Staple Cosmetics: Which Products are Worth It (IMO)

If you love doing your make-up, but also don’t love doing it for more than, ah, 20 minutes, you’re like me.

I played around with brands and looks for a long time before I found my personal staple products, the things I always have on hand that last and that are worth their prices. In my opinion, these products are the affordable compilation of the products that I can have on hand that ultimately come together so that I always have on hand the products I need for the look I’m going for.SkinTarte Under the Sea Foundation$51 CAD, this product lasts me about 6 months. It provides full and natural looking coverage.Tarte Pro Glow to Go Palette$30 CAD This palette is like no other contour kit I’ve tried its lasting appliance and pliability. It lasts years! EyesToo Faced Natural Eye Shadow Palette$45 CAD I have had this palette for, I kid you not, six years, and it is still going strong. It was a gift from one of my dearest friends in tenth grade, and I literally haven’t bought eye shadow since! It has every shade I use for going out or day-to-day.Sephora Long Lasting Black Eye LinerCAD $14 This pencil liner is easy to use. I don’t wear eyeliner every day, but it’s the perfect product for those times I do.Cover Girl Lash Blast MascaraCAD $9 This is, personally, one of my drug store purchases. I have pretty long and fills natural lashes, but I love the long and separated look this mascara helps provide.


Sephora Colour Last Semi-Matte

CAD $18 This mauve shade in semi matte is my go-to lil colour.

Tarte Lip Paint

CAD $22 This is my all time favourite lip colour. Long-lasting and not “cakey,” this colour and applicator pop!

Make-up is fun, and individual. Find your style if it’s something you’re interested in, do your research, and remember you don’t have to break the bank!
