Monty Python and My Holy Grail Products

Well hi there! 

I am SO sorry for my lack of posts over the past week. Life has been so crazy here in Italy, I just haven't had the time to sit down and actually blog. But let me tell you, I am so beyond excited to be back! I have acquired way too many new products over the past week that I am dying to share with you guys! One of them being two sets of brushes that everyone in the beauty community is raving about. You know which ones I'm talking about. But more about those later. Today, I'm sharing with you my Holy Grail products! Whoot!

The products you see above are the ones that I use pretty much on a daily basis and they're also products that I plan on repurchasing over and over again. Some of these have been staples for me for years, others are newer, but they're holding their own in my most reaced for. 

Revlon ColorStay Foundation: This foundation is my most favorite foundation of all. I just picked this up about two or three months ago, but i've already used it more than foundations that have been in my collection for six. It is super light weight and the coverage is beautiful. It definitely is more of a light-medium coverage, but it is certainly buildable! 
Benefit Coralista Blush: Oh, Coralista! I could go on and on about this blush and I could still probably never telll you how much I love it. The color is perfect for all year round, the texture is the softest I've ever felt, and it smells AMAZING! Benefit really hit the nail on the head with their boxed blushes, and Coralista, to me, is just the most perfect of them all. 
Benefit Hello Flawless! Powder: One of my very first posts was a dupe for this beauty, and even though the e.l.f. dupe is lovely, I still tend to reach for Hello Flawless. On days where I'm not in the mood for foundation, I wear only this powder and it evens out my skin tone, covers any imperfections, and really just makes my skin look flawless! I've been using this powder for 2 or 3 years now and I don't think I will ever stop. 
Benefit They're Real! Mascara: About a year ago I tried this mascara and for whatever reason I hated it. But about a month ago after all of the rave and hype on blogs and YouTube, I decided to give it another go. Boy oh boy am I glad I did! This mascara volumizes, lengthens, thickens, etc. Everything you could ever possibly want a mascara to do, it does! I really have not the slightest clue as to why I hated this product! It's the best mascara ever. EVER! 
Wet n' Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette: I'm sure this comes as no surprise, as everyone and their mother raves about this palette. I can see why! After months of waiting for the PX to restock this baby, they finally got it and I was the first to pick this lovely product up. I had my doubts about it, but after buying it, I will gladly say that I use this more than my Naked2. The colors are so smooth and pigmented. It is definitely my most used eyeshadow palette ever. 
Clinique Chubby Stick Intense: You've all seen Revlons version of this product, and sadly, it gets way more hype than the original. I say sadly, because the Chubby Sticks are the most moisturizing lip products I've ever used, and the colors are so beautiful! I can't say that I like the regular Chubby Sticks too much, but the Intense versions are incredible. Talk about pigmented! I always forget about this lovely because I have so many lip products, but this one always finds its way back to being my favorite, time and time again. 
Marc Jacobs Daisy Perfume: For my 18th birthday, my husband (boyfriend at the time) bought my my first bottle of Daisy. Since then (about a year and a half) I've gone through two bottles. This scent is the most perfect, light floral scent you will ever smell. Every time I go out with this on, I get compliments. If you have never smelled Daisy, go to your nearest Sephora right this very second and ask the sales lady to make you a sample. RIGHT NOW!

I feel like I can't speak about Holy Grails without sharing with you one of the most famous, so here you go:

I hope you guys enjoyed my Holy Grails! Let me know which products are yours so I can give them a try!
