Unsung Hero’s

Makeup favorites come and go but there are a handful of makeup products that I use daily that always remain the same. While I might not talk about these they are all tried and true standout products. So let’s take some time and let these beauties shine! These are my unsung heroes!

Maybelline Clear Great Lash

 This lightweight gel is perfect at taming brows. Maybelline really has nailed there formula on this. On one side it does add a good amount of hold but on the other side your eyebrows don’t feel crispy or waxy. In terms of application it’s so easy you honestly can’t mess it up. I love this product and it’s one that I continuously repurchase.

Avene Cold Cream

I’ve done a post on this almost a year ago but I feel like this needs some more love. When people don’t believe I have eczema I have this product to thank. This cream is the perfect spot on treatment for any dry patches. When my skin is really dry and irritated I actually apply a generous amount to the affected area and sleep with it on. If you are someone who suffers from extremely dry skin or eczema I can’t recommend this enough. I love this product it has literally worked miracles on my skin.

Shiseido Cotton

So the story is I never understood the hype around these. Cotton pad/square/triangle/whatever is all the same, right? Going back a few years while I was working in cosmetics I was shocked to see how many women swore by them. When a Shiseido ‘master facial specialist’ came in the store I couldn’t resist the urge to get the low down on these fancy cotton squares. Her method of using them was to split them into half that way you use less cotton and use less product. Since my first try I have loved these they are amazingly soft and don’t leave cotton on your face. I have tried many dupes over the years but honestly nothing compares. I don’t think I’ve ever talked about these but they are absolutely amazing and very addictive too. Be warned if you try these you will be hooked for life!

NUXE Reve De Meil
I have been using this lip balm every night before bed for over a year. This thick and somewhat gritty textured lip balm moisturizes like no one’s business. The sent, the hydration and even the texture is something I look forward to using every night. I adore this product and look forward to using it each and every night

So while I might be talking about my makeup choices for summer or month or whenever… Be assured there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t use one of these 4 beauties. What are your unsung heroes? Leave me a comment!


  1. I use the maybelline clear lash too on my brows. It's just so good! That lip balm also sounds amazing.

    1. NUXE's lip balm is absolutely devine!
      Thanks for commenting :)

  2. Nice picks, Tanya! Reve de Miel has been on my wishlist for ages, though I'm really loving Lush's Honey Trap lip balm, which I think is pretty similar. Have a great weekend :)


    1. I really need to go to lush!
      There is a long list of things I would love to try and that lip balm is on the top of my list :)
