10 Products I can't live without

I was recently tagged for this "10 products" post on Instagram. I thought it was pretty interesting; what would I say my top 10 products are? I used to be obsessed with makeup in college. I watched all the huge YouTube beauty gurus on practically a daily basis, and learned so much from them about products. In fact, I learned so well that I can safely say that I don't need any more makeup for about 10 years. Well, besides mascara! Don't leave that lying around too long unless you want an eye infection. Just sayin'. Anyway, I also did hair and body products as well- can't forget those! As an added bonus I added some drugstore dupes for some of my more expensive products!

So without further ado: My 10
1. Original Naked Palette
Yes I have all 3 but this will forever be my holy grail- Sin (second shade from the left) is my all time favorite eye shadow color, and buck (3rd shade) is my perfect eyebrow shade. :)
2.Vaseline Rosy lip balm
Okay... shocker. How many times have I posted this already?! haha!
3. Mascara 
 pictured is Bad gal Lash mascara. I remember liking this, but that was a few years ago. I haven't opened this tube yet.
4. L'Oreal BB Cream.
I literally won't use anything else 99 percent of the time. For my wedding I did NARS sheer glow and I loved that, but NOTHING beats this. I have to use the lightest shade called fair, because even their "light" color made me look like a tanning product gone bad.
5. Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded
Another holy grail product for me. At around 6 dollars its incredibly cheap and makes my eyeshadow last all day without creasing. Win.
6. Ambient Lighting Palette from Hourglass
I love this thing. Does it work. Doubt it. Does it make me feel like I'm somehow prettier? YES. Isn't that what makeup is supposed to do? :)
7. NARS bronzer in Laguna
This is a cult classic, and well deserved. I have a dupe down below if you can't stomach shelling out 30+ bucks for bronzer
8. The Righteous Body Butter by Soap and Glory
This stuff is amazing. It smells like one of my all time favorite perfumes: Miss Dior. It's also intensely hydrating.
9. Lulah Vanilla Orchid Shower Gel
My mother-in-law turned me on to this. The scent is great, but even better is that to me it smells like the days when I was first dating my husband. :)
10. Carol's Daughter Monoi hair mask
I have crazy, curly, and thick hair. It needs moisture, and taming, and everything else you can think of. This is the best conditioner I have ever found. It's expensive though, so it's only an occasional treat.
Another shot. :)

The dupes!

 This mascara is Revlon's 3D volume. I LOVE IT.
 There's me in the mirror! Anyway, this duo from Hard Candy is one of my favorite things ever. It costs 6 dollars at Walmart. YouTuber Allison Anderson raved about this and I'm glad I listened. With the base under it (Maybelline) it wears exactly like Urban Decay. It is extremely pigmented and metallic/shimmery. The shade is called "High Maintenance." Please go buy it. I'm not even kidding.
NYC has a bronzer called "sunny" that is nearly identical to Laguna. It's about 3 dollars instead of 34 so... your choice. :)
