Holy Grails

Burberry Sheer Foundation - worn every day since May, can be worn sheerly or built up to great medium coverage, undetectable in harsh sunlight - AMAZING.
Blush Shu Uemura P Amber 83 - I have worn this 90% of the time since I bought it in December, and blush is one of my favourite products.
Loose Powder Shu Uemura Loose Matte - perfect natural, non-powdery finish.
Nail Polish Chanel Beige Petale, Gelous Base Coat - best 'my nails but better colour' and the base coat means all my polishes last more than a day.
Eyeliner NARS Longer Than Life in Via Veneto for tightlining because it actually stays on the waterline
Eye Primer NARS Smudgeproof
Hair Product Leonor Greyl Volumateur Aux Algues
Skincare Cerave Hydrating Cleanser, Bioderma Crealine H2O
Lipstick Giorgio Armani Sheer Lipstick 37 (Ltd Ed of course...)
Brushes Giorgio Armani foundation brush

Staples - Things I use most days but still try out other things

Gel Eyeliner Suqqu Creamy Eyeliner in Black
Concealers For eyes I like By Terry Touche Veloute (best colour and not drying), for blemishes Shu Uemura Gel concealer is very long lasting.
Eye Lash Curler Shu Uemura

For lips I also like By Terry Baume de Rose, Chanel Petit Peche glossimer..anything pretty and natural without lots of colour.

The only thing I really like from drugstore are the Maybelline Dream Touch cream blushes - really beautiful & the pale peach is an excellent colour match for my favourite Shu Uemura P Amber 83.

Chanel inimitable intense mascara: gives me VOLUME without clumpiness. Although Bourjois liner effect mascara deserves a mention too. It gives me the volume I need at the roots of my lashes, without lengthening too much. It never clumps and is so easy to build up if you need more. I usually wear Bourjois during the day for a more natural look and Chanel when going out.

Chanel glossimers (long staying power, non-sticky, fragrance-free, as I need my liglosses to be. I seriously become nauseous from fragranced or sticky ligloss.)

MAC shroom e/s
MAC painterly paint pot
Bourjois chocolate bronzer
Chanel loose powder
Estée Lauder peach nuance blush

HGs for at least five years and still in :

Mac Liquidlast
in black
Mac Dubonnet lipstick
Mac black eyeliner (forgot the name)
Lancome UV Expert SPF 50
Prada Tendre parfum

Lancome Maquiliquide used to be my HG foundation but since they changed the formule now I use RMK or L'Oreal (Japan) liquid foundations and I'm pretty happy with them.

I'm pretty flexible with blush, mascara and powder.
