My Top 3 Most Purchased Makeup Products

Hey guys!  Hope everyone had a LOVELY Valentine's Day.  Today I thought I would share my top 3 makeup loves that I have purchased time and time again.  They are all reasonably priced, in my opinion.  Like any other beauty addict, I enjoy trying new items out, but these are my tried and true, FAVORITES!

I have been using this concealer for so long, that I honestly can't even remember what I used before this came into my life!  My eye area is very pigmented, and this definitely brightens my face.  Not only does this conceal, but it also treats dark circles and aging skin. 

 TheBalm Time Balm concealer comes in 9 shades and I wear light/medium.  For $18, this usually lasts me about a year.  I use a concealer brush to apply the product, which also prevents the introduction of bacteria.  Basically, I love this and recommend it to everyone.

Okay, let me just say that I think mascara is one of those things that can be hard to recommend because not everyone is going for the same look.  My lashes are long, but limp and not very voluminous on their own.  I HAVE to curl them, and most of the time I require a waterproof formula to hold the curl.  Of course, you need the right eye makeup remover if you are wearing a waterproof formula, BUT if you do not have this wimpy lash problem, then give the original one a try!

Alright, here's another thing.  You know how sometimes mid day you take a look in the mirror and discover a black smudge under your eyes where your lashes have been hitting?  I FEEL like the carbon black variety of this mascara does that.  I don't know if it's the extra pigment or what, but that's my field research.  

I came to know Milani when it was going around many years ago that their Luminous blush was a dupe for Nars Orgasm.  They have since discontinued that blush, and created this line of baked blushes in it place.  The shade Luminoso is pretty much the same thing once blended out.  Suitable for most skintones!  Just don't use the brush that comes with this blush.  

Alright, those are my 3 most purchased products!  Let me know down in the comments what your 3 most purchased products are.  :)
