I loooove the MPZ blushes, but I hate the jars she put them in.
They’re not the greatest packaging, but I’ve seen worse. I wish they were a bit bigger to accommodate brushes better.

Geez, this limit of 5 is difficult – there’s so much more I’d like to add!

1.) Nyx Bare With Me Concealers
2.) Nyx Micro Brow Pencil (BEST dupe for the ABH Brow Whiz Pencil!)
3.) Lumene Bright Now Vitamin C BB Cream SPF 20
4.) Sydney Grace eyeshadow singles and palettes!
5.) Nyx Slim Lip Pencils (PERFECT dupes for MAC lip liners!)
Honorable mention to: L’Oreal Lash Paradise WP mascara, Maybelline Full & Soft WP Mascara, many a product from ColourPop.
Sydney Grace eye shadow singles, Devinah cosmetics eye shadow singles, e.l.f. setting spray, ColourPop ultra satin liquid lipsticks (rest in peace, and almost all mine have gone bad), Blackbird Cosmetics blushes (also rip, I dread the day I finish any of them).
Carmex colloidal oatmeal lip balm. One of the only things that can help my lips when they get really bad in winter. If they ever raise the price, I’m okay with it. It varies from $3 to $6 and change depending on where you get it, which is still a steal.
I honestly can’t think of anything else, except maybe another lip balm.
Item Beauty Lite Sauce gel moisturizer
Sephora collection vitamin C toner/serum (set)

Moira eyeshadow palettes, potted shadows, liquid shadows and cream blushes
Sheglam liquid blush
This is hard. Im thinking of things like cerave cleanser or clinique take the day off balm (so many others bother my eyes). Nyx brow gel. Eos lip balm. Urban decay ozone lip pencil. It helps dark colors not migrate into my lip lines.
