Holy Grail Products You Need To Own Before The Year Ends

Make sure you add these drugstore and high-end picks to your stash ASAP!

It can be quite a mystery as to how us makeup lovers manage to add more products to our beauty stash even if we already have a huge and diverse collection. But in times when we need to trim down our beauty kits, whether it be for travelling or just decluttering, a holy grail product definitely comes into our mind. And they are our ultimate go-tos for good reason. 

But if you're still confused as to whether or not a product needs to fit certain requirements to be considered 'the one', do take note that HG products do not necessarily have to blow a hole on your budget. And if you do need to spend some extra moolah, then might as well be worth it.

So with the year about to end, we decided to help you stock up for your new year beauty stash early. Here's a definitive list of our holy grail products, ranging from drugstore to high-end, that you should totally add to the top of your makeup must-have list. 


Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation

If someone says that drugstore can't be your holy grail product, then clearly they haven't come across this foundation. A lot of beauty gurus swear by this product because of how flawlessly it applies, whether you use a brush or a sponge. Plus, it gives light to medium coverage and has a buildable formula, minus the caking. And with the price, it's definitely a product straight from your dreams!

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Eyeshadow has become one of the biggest things in makeup this year. But a great eyeshadow look can only be achieved if you use an amazing primer. Our top pick? The Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion. Makeup lovers everywhere are raving over this product and for good reason. It simply works wonders as an eyeshadow base and you'll definitely notice the difference in your eye look with this primer around.

Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso

Another holy grail product to add to your list that does not blow a hole in your budget, this beautiful rose gold blush from Milani gives your skin a nice flushed glow with its peachy tone and soft sparkles. It's also very creamy and pigmented, so a little goes a long way. 

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Face Palette

Every makeup lover knows that popping on that glow is everything. It gives an elegant and refreshing touch to any makeup look and the Becca X Jaclyn Hill highlighting palette gives you the right balance between a subtle sheen and a bold pop of colour with its selection. Even if this comes with quite a price tag, a simple sweep works its magic perfectly so you'll be sure to get the bang for your buck. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

Not a huge fan of falsies but absolutely love lush lashes? This Too Faced mascara should be your go-to! Talk about the magic of one coat with its signature hourglass wand tip, giving you full and defined lashes. If you're feeling a bolder, two coats are enough for a dramatic finish that's perfect if you're going for a sultry and sexy look.

Maybelline Creamy Matte Brown Nudes

Every woman needs a nude lipstick that's ready to swipe for everyday wear. And if you're a fan of creamy, long-wearing, and high-density pigmented lippies that won't break the bank even if you buy the entire collection, these brown nudes from Maybelline should make it to your HG list. With its variety of colours to suit any skin tone and mood, these babies can sure match up to high-end nude lipsticks in quality and aesthetic.
