The Ride or Die Makeup Tag

Thursday, September 1, 2016


When I was watching Jaclyn Hill's Ride or Die Makeup Tag, I instantly knew that there was no way in this life or after, I would have a ride or die product in each of the makeup categories. There are so many products that I "LIKE", but not "LOVE"! I decided that I will just fill in categories where I have clear winners.




Primer l BECCA Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector™

This primer is the oil-sucking Edward Cullen of the primer category. Keeps my skin matte for 6-7 hours, and does a wonderful job in minimizing my pores. If you have dry skin, stay far far away from this primer, as blending the foundation on top will turn your face into a Sahara desert (dry patches).

Foundation l  <Yet to find my knight in shining bottle>

I am a foundation junkie, and I am always on the lookout for the next best thing in the market and for this very reason, I couldn't pick one foundation that rocked my boat. I like the finish of MUFE Ultra HD, wear time of Estee Lauder Double Wear, and coverage of NARS. Unless someone decides to come up with a hybrid as described, I would let this space be empty.

Concealer l LA Girl PRO.conceal Warm Honey l Link

I have raved and raved about this concealer, so much so that it  featured in my 2015 favorites post. You can read the entire review on the link provided.

Eyebrow l Urban Decay Brow Box l Link

My dream eyebrow kit! The kit contains two shades (dark and light), wax, and eyebrow tools for keeping the unruly brows in place. The kit is slightly on the pricier side (INR 2100), but totally worth the moolahs.

Eyeliner l Maybelline Colossal Kajal l Lakme Eyeconic Kajal l Link

Every Indian girl will have either one of the two kajal as part of their daily beauty routine, probably one of the first "REAL" makeup item that we were introduced to. I prefer the later (Lakme) a tad bit more than the Colossal Kajal. I have had better-performing liners (Marc Jacobs), but at end of the day, I go back to these two.

Eyeshadow l ABH Shadow Couture Palette l Link

It was a limited edition palette, but if there is ever a re-launch (Norvina, listen to the prayers of us mortals), I would buy two of these as backups. This eyeshadow palette has everything that you want, beautiful transition shades, crease shades, highlights, and metallic amazeballs. This palette will elevate your average 9-5 girl-next-door look to bad-ass rocker chick look.

Blush l Milani Luminoso l Link

This is a100 W bulb in a pot. The blush gives a nice coral luminous flush to my cheeks and hands down one of the most flattering coral shades on tan skin tone. Good job Milani!

Contour and Highlight l Sleek Contour Kit in Medium l Link

One of my first and most loved contour and highlight palette.The contour shade is perfect for my NC 42 skin tone and the champagne-hued highlight is nicely milled and doesn't leave a streak of highlight that can be seen from the outer space.

Lipstick l MAC Creme in Your Coffee l Link

The perfect "MLBB" shade for NC 42 skin tone. Probably, my most used lipstick!


So what are your ride or die makeup products?
