Beauty trends come and go. The makeup and skincare industry changes like the weather, with fresh products entering the market everyday, all year round. In a market so saturated with products which may or may not be good, there are certain items, old and new, whose efficacy is unparalleled. We asked people to tell us about the beauty products they swore by, so we could come up with a list of dependable beauty buys that would work for everyone. Here are the items that most people vouched for as their go-to’s, from the most essential to the least.
Pond’s BB Cream
Very few other products will conceal your blemishes, shield your skin from the sun, and provide even coverage at this price. This inexpensive BB cream is that heaven-sent shortcut, barring its problematic and unnecessary positioning as a whitening product. Those who vouch for it, swear that it gives non-cakey coverage, and blends perfectly.
The Body Shop Born Lippy Pot Lip Balm
Only marginally second to Baby Lips, came the Body Shop lip balms. Deliciously fruity, these tubs of hydration will last you ages. The key to finding the perfect lip balm for you is to understand your needs. If you want hydration that stays, steer away from pigmented or glittery balms.
Lakme CC cream 9 to 5
We can vouch on this heaven sent product which gives a flawless blending with a touch of natural shine. A perfect beauty buy for all the working ninjas.
Ruby Woo Lipstick by MAC
Pout it pretty with red lips and Ruby Woo is a perfect color for every girl next door. This color suits every complexion and gives a beautiful coverage throughout the day. You can blend it with a MAC liner to let it stay forever. We are crushing on this color.
Maybelline Volum’ Hyper Curl Express Waterproof Mascara
For girls who love to add some drama and play with their big bold eyes, try this formidable mascara by Maybelline and we are sure you will never go wrong. Elevating those eye lashes is perhaps the best solution for those mundane Monday mornings.
Maybelline Gel Eyeliner
Considering how eyeliner adds new dimensions to a face by drawing attention to the eyes, its value as a transformative makeup tool is not misplaced.
