I’m always being asked what my favorite products are and what I recommend. And to be honest every month my products change or stay the same. So I decided I will share with you, products I have been using non-stop for the month. But since it’s only the middle of October, these products I have been using since August through now. These products are a mixture of drugstore and high-end.
You’ll see everything from primer to lipstick. Basically each step of my makeup routine. The only thing you will NOT see are Setting Sprays & False Lashes. Reasons are because I use the same products when it comes to setting sprays and lashes.

Bronx Colors Pore Minimizer is a fairly new brand on the Ulta Website. I didn’t know or hear about it until I did my shopping in August. It’s definitely a drugstore brand. This primer is by far my favorite to use because the primer blends with my skin tone. It reminds me of the Benefit Cosmetics Porefessional Primer. Definitely, covers up those pores.
BH Cosmetics Studio Pro Mattifying Primer because I have oily skin, this primer is another great mattifying primer for oily skin girls. It is a silicone based primer and not many people like that but I don’t mind as long as it works.
NYX Cosmetics Total Control Drops a really good drugstore foundation. It is a matte foundation but what I love the most about this foundation is how I can build the amount of coverage I want. So if I want a light coverage one day and a full coverage the next day, I can definitely do that with this foundation. You can read my review here.
Colourpop No Filter – If you haven’t purchased this concealer, YOU NEED TO! I love using this concealer so much, even on my clients. It gives such a full coverage under those eyes and little goes long ways.
Maybelline Fit Me – This concealer will always be my holy grail. I haven’t stopped using this concealer since I first tried it out and I won’t stop.
Makeup Revolution Luxury Baking Powder – For being a drugstore setting powder, I really like how it’s a banana shade because I love to use it when setting my under eyes. It brightens up my under eyes but not so much.
Urban Decay Naked Flush – I’ve talked about this palette before and I will continue to rave about it because I do like how there are so many different shades. Also, it comes with a blush & highlighter.
Physicians Formula Highlight & Contour (matte) – One word when it comes to this palette, PIGMENTED. When I first used this contouring palette I didn’t expect it to be so pigmented. It comes with 2 different bronzing colors and a banana shade highlight. (They do have a shimmery version of this.)
Sigma Beauty Aura Blush (Cor-de-rosa) is a beautiful natural looking shade. When I want to apply blush but not make my cheeks look rosy this is the one I go to. Another great blush I love is the Physicians Formula Butter Blush. I do have to say that this blush is scented. So if you have sensitive skin, don’t recommend it.

I do a lot of winged looks and I like to make sure I’m using good waterproof liners and the two that I’ve been using a lot is the Mellow Cosmetics Gel Liner and PUR Cosmetics On Point Liquid Liner. The Mellow Cosmetics Gel Liner is easy to work with. It’s not thick at all like other gel liners. PUR Cosmetics On Point liquid liner gives a matte finish. Which I love on those dramatic looks.
I’m a lover of nude lipsticks. It’s the best for everyday wear. Mellow Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Posh is the one I love using so much because it’s the perfect nude shade for my skin tone. It’s also creamy so it’s not overdrying on the lips.
