Today is going to be a bit of a different post but still beauty related. I think for most girls or at least those who are interested in/wear make up it is almost like a life goal to find that one perfect product in, let’s say each beauty category. Now I mean we all want to find that one perfect foundation that will make our face look absolutely flawless or that one amazing mascara that will gives us voluminous long lashes that reach up to the sky. You get the idea, right?
Obviously I can’t speak for everyone but I think there are quite a lot of girls that are probably the same way. Always on the hunt for that one perfect product! The list of mascaras and foundations I’ve tried is quite long. Some have gotten pretty close and others have been an absolute fail. But that’s okay. It’s good to eliminate products as well and trying out different things definitely teaches you a lot. When I first got into make up there weren’t loads of different YouTubers and bloggers to learn from. Or at least it wasn’t that known and when I was 14 (5 long years ago) I hardly spent much time on the Internet to be honest. So when I first started playing around with make up I never even imagined to go on Google and read a review. Yep, that’s how things have changed over time. What I mean is that I had to go through all these products and couldn’t just pass one by because I read a bad reviews about it. I bought most of them based on whether the packaging was pretty or not.
In those 5 years that I’ve been into make up I’ve tried quite the amount of products and some I absolutely loved yet I don’t know if it’s just me but I always have the hope of finding something even better. Especially nowadays because my make up options have grown so much. When I was 14/15 I never would have thought I’d ever spend 50€ on an eyeshadow palette or 45€ on a blush. I would only buy drugstore brands like Maybelline or Essence and I didn’t even really know about the whole world of high end make up.
But one day my mom took me into a MAC store because I was even paler when I was younger and I could hardly ever find a powder in the drugstore that didn’t make me look all weird and orangy. When I walked into that Mac store for the first time and saw all those pretty shiny products I thought I was in absolute make up heaven. The lady recommended me their Mineralize Skinfinish powder in the lightest shade and I loved it. It hardly felt like I was wearing any make up and yet it made my skin look so perfect. I remember her only putting on moisturiser and a bit of the powder ( I was only 15 so didn’t need all that much).
I’ve used that Mac powder for the longest time. Probably for 4 years but the price kept going up over time and when I became a student and moved and suddenly had the responsibility for everything myself and had to buy my own food and stuff I tried looking for alternatives. I’ve tried out so many different setting powders in the last couple of months and some I even really liked but still I couldn’t find the one that gave me that natural flawless finish my old powder gave me. About a week ago I made myself face the fact that my Mac powder was just the best one for me personally.
As you may have guessed it I went back to Mac and I know this powder isn’t for everyone. We all have different skin so what works for one person might not work for someone else but this powder just really works for me. It’s that one product I know that won’t fail me so whenever I need or want to look my best I can use it because it will do what I expect it to.
My mom made fun of me for getting so excited when it arrived because for her it’s just another powder but I couldn’t wait because it’s that one products that makes my skin look best and makes me feel best about my skin. I guess it’s my holy grail powder.
So do you have any product that just always makes you feel better about yourself? That one product you just keep going back to and you just can’t seem to find anything better?
