Everyone has those beauty essentials they just couldn’t live without, and with this week’s #bbloggers Twitter chat centering around these much-loved, Holy Grail products, we thought we would share with you some of our favourite pieces from the wide range available at HQhair. So whether you’re a bold lip lover, fancy yourself as a bit of skincare expert or love trying out the latest hair products, our Holy Grail products will definitely include something for you to try (if you don’t already love them yourself!).
With its glowing, satin finish and sheer but buildable coverage, the Sheer Glow Foundation from NARS is one of our all time favourite foundations for everyday wear. Available with a wide colour range, this gorgeous base helps to brighten and clarify your complexion as well as hydrating your skin.
Every one of the Urban Decay Naked palettes deserves a place in this list, but for everyday versatility and a fantastic selection of neutral shades, the Naked Basics Palette just edges it as our favourite eye palette. With six matte shades ranging from the beautiful cream of Foxy to the sultry black of Crave, this palette comes complete with super sleek packaging and a handy built-in mirror.
Another NARS offering which has quite rightly made it onto this list is the Semi-Matte Lipsticks which boast highly pigmented colour pay off in a variety of different shades. With a non-drying formula and a soft, velvety finish, these matte lipsticks are super long wearing and are formulated with Vitamin E for added hydration.
We’re sure this one comes as no surprise, but Moroccanoil is still one of the ultimate Holy Grail products when it comes to keeping your hair shiny and silky smooth. Suitable for all hair types, this miracle oil is lightweight and non-greasy and even boasts the brand’s signature scent for hair that feels luxuriously soft and smells gorgeous. You only need a tiny bit too, so it lasts for ages. We love it!
Designed to nourish hair deep inside the fibre, the Nutritive Masque Nutri-Thermique from Kérastase is an intensely nourishing mask that has a heat activated formula which creates a protective film on the hair.
Providing flexible control and long-lasting hold, Paul Mitchell’s Style Super Sculpt Styling Glaze is a super fast drying product which adds body to your hair as well as maximising shine. Designed to be applied closely to your scalp, this glaze can be worked throughout your hair and styled with ease.
Allegedly used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary, Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is a facial mist which tightens pores and provides and instant burst of radiance to the complexion. Perfect as an anti-dull treatment, the gorgeous spritz is blended with grape extracts, rosemary essential oil and soothing orange blossom to tighten pores and smooth the skin.
With a combination of glycolic acid and liquorice, Alpha-H’s Liquid Gold is fast becoming a cult beauty product thanks to its ability to reduce wrinkles, open pores and acne marks. It also firms and exfoliates the skin – and not only that, but it starts working after just one overnight application. A skincare must-have!
The ultimate ‘facial in a jar’, the GLAMGLOW® Youth Mud Face Mask boasts a pleasant tingling sensation as it tightens and brightens the skin, offering multi-level resurfacing exfoliation and penetrating into the deepest layers of the skin.
So that’s it for our Holy Grail round up! What are yours? We’d love to hear them!
