Ask Liz! > All about HG.

Good day! My question would be quite a demanding one so i think i should apologize beforehand. I know you are busy right now, so sorry! Any answer will be appreciated.. :) In your previous posts, you have discussed about your top picks regarding bb creams, foundations, etcetera. I have tried some of them, and I'm planning on trying others as well. Raves are something when it comes to beauty bloggers and youtube gurus, but having something as their HG is another. I must admit, there's something about HG status that thrills us readers and viewers and makes us want to buy a particular product. Being an avid reader of your blog, i can easily state some of your HG's. But can i make a request from you to list down your ultimate HG products? Hehe. Like if you have to choose only one product from the these categories (to follow), what would they be? Doesn't matter whether they be high end or low end. Again, i'm sorry for being too demanding. I just want to read about them in a single post and i think i will eventually buy them for myself. I trust your judgement a lot, i guess you could tell. :) Thank you so much! God bless!

So here are the categories:
Primer, BB cream, foundation, setting powder, powder foundation, retouch powder, blush on, highlighter, bronzer/contour product, eyebrow product, eye palette, mascara, lip balm, lipstick, lip gloss. Whew! That was quite a long one. God bless! *readers, pls answer too. :)

Hey Marie. What's your skin type BTW? And other infos about your skin. Maybe your HG and Liz's will not be the same if you are not combi like her. At least try to give your preferences so it will be easier for her to suggest the best stuff for you. :]

@Cha: I forgot to mention that. I am combi/oily skin as well that's why what has worked for her mostly worked for me too. And I am asking for her HG products, not for what she would recommend to me. :) Anyway, what's your skin type din pala?

June 30, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMarie

Combi too. :D anw my HGs are Revlon Colorstay, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, Maybelline Hypercurl or Falsies and Tattoo gel liner, Wet and Wild Color Icon 6 pan eyeshadow. My preferences are longwear and matte finish. Heehee.

Do you have the color icon palette in vanity? Ang ganda noh? And collection concealer looks promising din. Good thing the brand is here na in the Philippines. You scored it agad! Hehe. Thanks for the list of your HG's! =) I go for long-wearing and matte din. :)

Yes it's beautiful, and matte. Hahaha I'm a sucker for matte shadows, some shimmer eye shadows crease kasi on my lids, and matte is more natural. I just haven't found the perf blush, highlighter and bronzer yet. One commenter here recommended in2it cream blush, despite cream daw sya eh it stays on a pretty much decent time. Haven't researched too much on highlighter and bronzer tho. I dunno how to use them yet, so better keep my HG on the basics. ANW let's just see what are Liz's HGs, I wanna know too. :D

Yup i love the matte shades of the vanity palette too! I actually used it on my civil wedding (did my own makeup). It was my first time to buy an eyeshadow palette and i practiced days ahead. Simple look lang naman kasi civil lang, and it didn't disappoint. I didn't wear primer pa. Hehe! I actually followed liz' reco to mix the lightest matte and shimmer shades, and ang ganda sa eyes. Now i'm wearing it everytime i go out. :) Haven't tried cream blushes pa kasi i don't know how it will look like when set, or kung sineset ba. Hehe. I want to branch out too by using highlighter and blush. Puro basics lang din ako.. Let's wait na for liz' list! =)
