Do you guys have any "holy grail" products that you just can't live without? Leave us a comment and let us know. Maybe we will find something new to add to our favorites! 

Thanks for watching!


  1. This is such a good list. I would add my Vichy Normaderm face cream which I absolutely can't live without :P

  2. reviva lab makeup primer on top of milk of magnesia! sounds weird but it makes my oily face matte all day!

  3. just reading the names of these sounds good! i'm glad you picked all your favs. makes it easier for a girl who has only been reading for 3 months! a little catch up! ;)

    happy 1 year!

  4. you've been tagged!!!!

  5. Thank you so much for this list! I want to try all of these products out.

  6. Estée Lauder Doublewear eyeliners. I live and die by those x

  7. UD's 15th Anniversary palette is so amazing! They really knocked it out of the park with that one.

  8. Great picks! I'm wanting to order some Sigma brushes, but the shipping time to Canada is ridiculous! 6-8 weeks or something like that, so I've been holding out. But I think I'll end up getting them anyways because I hear such great things about them!
    I absolutely love my Naked Palette and Jennifer Aniston perfume! :) I also just picked up some DG Glow Pads, I haven't used them yet but I'm excited now that I see you guys both like them :) (Sorry for the long comment!)

  9. Congrats on 1 year! I love all the favorites and Tart Deco is def my go to sandal color!

  10. Great lists!! I haven't tried very many of these products but obvi I will need to now that y'all are recommending them :)

  11. I couldn't live with out my Buxon lip gloss

  12. Great product list! I'm not a fan of Moroccan Oil .. it seems to weigh my hair down.

    Enjoy the beginning of your week.


  13. I wanted you both to know that you have great personalities! I enjoy watching your clips. I am a fan of the naked palette, the Moroccan oil, and the neutragena light sesame oil. My must have is MAC cover up concealer.

  14. So glad to hear that I am not the only one obsessed with Jennifer Aniston's perfume. It smells amazing!

  15. I'm glad that you ladies highlighted your fave (and most used, reoccuring) products!!
    you both really featured a wide range of beauty products across the board.
    some of my faves that I want to try are...
    -make up brushes (a complete set since I have so many from different places)
    -eraser sticks
    -tan towels
    -body oil
    -NAKED palette
    and -eyebrow liner
    I'm really quite excited to go shop!! thanks again!


  16. I'm so glad you reviewed a primer. I've been having the hardest time finding one that works. I'm gonna give the Too Faced Primed & Poreless Skin Smoothing Primer a try!


  18. Hello ladies, what a great idea for a video. I really enjoyed seeing all your picks and am determined to try some of the ones I haven't yet, like the Jennifer Aniston perfume (Jayme - you know how I love anything beachy) and that Too Faced primer Mendi, especially since I know you've also tried the Hourglass primer! Mendi do you have the E25 brush, if not you NEED IT. It's a dupe for the MAC 217 I believe. Jayme I am ordering that hand cream, I have to have it. Congrats again on the 1 year mark, it feels like I've known you both much longer than a good way :)

  19. Love the almay make up erasers too! my holy grail product would have to be Chanel's vitalumiere aqua foundation. It's water based and never makes me break out!

    xo SideSmile,

  20. Sigma Essential Kit Makeup Brushes i still need to try them, maybe imats:)

  21. The MAC paint pot is ridiculously amazing...pretty much anything by MAC is amazing!! :)
