Ride or Die Makeup Challenge

Jaclyn Hill’s Ride or Die Challenge, have you seen it yet?

Jaclyn Hill created this fun challenge on YouTube and put the call out for bloggers and vloggers alike to give it a go. Turns out we haven’t done a TNL post on our favourite products since 2014, and some things have changed! So we thought this would be a great opportunity to challenge ourselves to pick faves in every category and for you guys to chime in too and let us know what you’re loving.

So, Ride or Die refers to those very favourite, will-always-repurchase products that never let you down. Basically if you were banished to a desert island and had to grab just one of everything, what would you grab?

Now, let’s be real. This is just for fun of course. If we were stranded on a desert island, make-up wouldn’t be our first priority. It would be lounging on the beach and getting pina coladas.


But humour us for the sake of this post.

We used Jaclyn’s picks and added a few of our own, TNL style.

Primer – Smashbox Photofinish
Foundation – Maybelline Fit me Matte + Poreless in Coconut, without a doubt
Concealer – Vasanti liquid concealer in V12
Face Powder – Vasanti Face Base in V13
Undereye Setting Powder – like, what? Like Ben Nye Banana Powder or naw?
Blush – MAC Style Demon is my boo…. but then if I’m on an island I’d need a coral soooo maaaayyyyybe Maybelline Coral Burst. How much time we got to decide?
Bronzer – Rimmel Sundance, like dude I see the bottom of the pan!
 Lash primer – ain’t nobody got time fo’ dat.
Mascara – Benefit They’re Real
Eyeliner – Rimmel Exaggerate liquid liner
Highlight– YOOOOO gimme dat Melanie Mills Gleam in Rose Gold, Bronze Gold, Deep Gold and Light Gold. They’re a package deal, I’d need to take all 4. They’re small containers, it’ll be fine.
Eye shadow palette – I barely wear eye shadow, but when I do I reach for my good ole Naked palette. The first one – the OG.
Lipliner – I have zero patience for that type of precision!
Lipstick – HOL’ UP. Surely I’m not supposed to choose one? Like, single solitary? *sigh* it’s definitely MAC Lady Danger. I’ve used and abused that shade.
Liquid Lipstick – Pretty Zombie in 3 witches
Lip Gloss – NYX butter gloss in Red Velvet
Setting Spray – MAC Fix+
Perfume – Givenchy Play
Primer – Dermologica Skin Perfect Primer ( This stuff is basically a mortgage payment, but a tube lasts a very long time and it is hands down the very best primer that I have ever used)
Foundation – Estee Lauder Double Wear in 4N2 Spiced Sand
Concealer – Anastasia Beverley Hills Concealer in 3.5
Face Powder – MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus
Undereye Setting Powder – Why is this a thing that made it into this challenge? I don’t generally set my undereye with powder, and I sure as heck am not taking up space in my precious desert island ride or die makeup bag for this.
Blush – MAC Harmony
Bronzer– Benefit Hoola
Lash primer – Not a primer per say but The Maybelline Great Lash Clear is always my first step. I’m bringing it!
Mascara – Benefit They’re Real
Eyeliner – Revlon ColourStay Liquid Liner in brown
Highlight– Becca Champagne Pop
Eye shadow palette – I can say with complete certainty that I do not have a ride or die eye palette. I feel very take it or leave it about all of them. Does this mean that I get to bring extra of something else?
Lipliner – NYX Nude Truffle
Lipstick – NYX round lipstick in Echo (discontinued but I bought a kazillion…muahaha…)
Liquid Lipstick – Lime Crime Velveteen in red velvet ( Still looking for a red as good as this from a competing brand, haven’t found it yet.
Lip Gloss – NYX Intense Butter Gloss in Peanut Brittle
Setting Spray – NYX Matte Finish Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
Perfume – Philosophy Pure Grace
