April Beauty Favs

beauty favorites

1. IT Cosmetics CC Cream : Yup,I know I am late to the game but I couldn’t help but share of course! I was so stuck on my go-to Makeup Forever foundation, I didnt want to change. Finally took the plunge and decided to try the CC cream. This stuff is amazing and cuts my routine time in half! And my skin still looks fresh and clean. SPF50 is a huge must have !

2. BabyBliss Curling Wand: I can create beachy S-waves within a few seconds per section. I have medium-long hair and lots of it, and I can style my whole head within 20 minutes. I love this wand! And it rarely catches or breaks my hair. Totally affordable compared to other brands.

3. VS Love Spell Perfume : Absolutely love this scent. This was my first VS perfume purchase, and I must say I am pleased. I use the lotion and perfume together, and the scent lasts all day indoors. I love fruity scents so the guava is what attracted me to try it out.

4. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion:  THIS IS THE MOST AMAZING THING IVE EVER USED.  The first night I used it, it was a little messy but I didnt apply correctly. I put a dab on two spots that were creeping up… both acne spots were gone the next day!  Its pretty much a magic cream for pimples!

5. Rodial Snake Serum:  This stuff is AMAZE!!!  inspired by the effects of the temple viper venom, smoothes the look of skin and reduces the visual appearance of wrinkles.

6. NYX Matte Lip Cream:  I love the vibrant color of this product! I have received so many compliments when I wear it because even though it is a brighter color, it still makes a difference to your look! I love it! If it lasted a little longer it would be perfect but i mean for the price…I won’t complain much about it!

7. PUR Foundation Brush: I have been looking for a foundation brush to replace my dying kabuki. This makes putting on my foundation easy and smooth. If you don’t want to go out and buy a set, this is a good choice.

8. Marc Jacobs Highlighter : I absolutely love this product. I use it over my foundation and can see a difference immediately. It gives such a beautiful, natural glow. The coverage lasts all day and smells amazing.

What are some beauty products are a loving?

Beauty Favorites Lately

I am a little behind on the beauty department shares. I have been loving so many things but these are a few of my favorites!!! 🙂

 

KAT VON D Lock-IT Foundation: When I first used this product, it applied really thick and blotchy. Then I went back to using my usual foundation and noticed it wasnt lasting as long as this one did. I tried using it again and actually adding a tiny bit of water to help make it easier to apply. It totally helped and this stuff is amazing!

TARTE Make Believe In Yourself Palette: Most of you know I love anything with some sparkle. This stuff has the right amount of color and sparkle and is not overwhelming. It is also a cheek palette and the color lasts all day! Totally worth it!

KENRA Color Balance Purple Shampoo: I used this product daily for one week and had a noticeable change in my hair’s brassiness! I have always had heavy blonde highlights in my hair that turn brassy over time. I’ve tried several other products that I was less than satisfied with but this one definitely works! It smells great and doesn’t leave your hair feeling or looking greasy! I would recommend this to anyone that colors their hair blonde!

HOPE in a Jar Skin Tint: I have used Hope in a Jar for awhile now as my daily moisturizer. When I saw this version I was like “Bye Bye Pale Face”!!! Moisturizer + Bronzer = Amazing! I use this everyday as a primer before my foundation!

St. Tropez Self Tanner Mouse: Speaking of bronzer… this stuff has been my lifesaver for my see-through skin! I worked for a tanning salon for 5 years and would spray tan like every other day. GROSE! These days the spray tan solution are so much better than they used to be. The application and color of this stuff is so natural looking. No streaking or weird spots. Perfect for summer!

 BED HEAD Flat Iron: My CHI finally went out after 10 years! I have no idea how it even lasted that long (or how I never lost it)… I heard so many great things about this one and it definitely does not disappoint. It heats up super fast and I only straighten each strand once! Game changer!

EMJOI Electric Razor: I received this from the company in return for a review and I was a little nervous to try it. I normally dont use electric razors for anything. I used it on my bikini line before we went to Mexico and it was really easy. (Kinda weird but definitely easier than regular shaving) It has 18 blades and doesnt leaves cuts or scratches. 🙂

BITE BEAUTY Lipstick:  I first got this lipstick from Influenster for testing purposes and fell in love. I had nt heard of the brand before but I love the quality so much. It literally lasts all day! The texture and the color are amazing. I love it!

I hope y’all have a fabulous weekend ladies!!!

Favorite Beauty Products – February

 

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick

I have just recently branched out from my usual lipsticks and wanted to try the Urban Decay lip products. Y’all… they are good!!! I was so surprised at how highly pigmented the lipsticks are and the colou pay off. And y’all know I love my purple lippies and this one does not dissapoint! 

L’Oreal Voluminous Super Star

ONE of my new favorite mascaras! I love the primer end of this one. If you build it up- your eyelashes will be SOOO long and so beautiful.

e.l.f. Blush Palette in Light

I use the bottom right color most often, but I will also use the two colors on the left when I feel like changing things up. I’ve also used the top right color to set my under eye highlight in the past. FUN FACT: Those little squares pop out, so if you wanted to buy the palatte in dark and light, you could move them around to mix and match your favorite colors into one pallet.

Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate

Heaven in a bottle!!! I absolutely love this product.. This is the number one selling Clarins products…on both sides of the pond! It has also helped with my pores 🙂

Moroccain Oil Hair Treatment

I’m a Moroccanoil fan! All of their products have been great for me. I use this on damp hair before blow drying and it helps smooth and add shine. I also use it to tame flyaways and frizz. I am happy with this product overall. The only downside is that especially if you use too much, it can leave the hair looking a little greasy after a long day.

TARTE Double-Ended Foundation Brush

This brush is a must have for anyone who likes an easy full coverage brush. The application is smooth and the finish is unbelievable! I’ve been stuck on the beauty blender for a while but this brush has taken its spot and then some for me! Also, I’ve been using it for a few months now and haven’t had any issues with the brush hairs falling out at all

The Wet Brush

The Wet Brush* is my go to for brushing my hair, whether it’s dry or wet. It’s a godsend. I remember using this as a little girl for dance competitions… GAME CHANGER!! No more tears during every outfit change! And now I re-introduced it to myself and I am so glad I did!

Have you tried any of these? What are some of you recent favorites?

Beauty Favorites – January

Happy Wednesday babes….
Y’all… its February!! What?!?!
I can’t believe that we’ve already gone through an entire month in 2017.  Welcome to my very first monthly favorites post!  I wanted to start this new series in 2017 so that I can share with you the best products I’ve tried throughout the month.
Beauty Favs
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick:  My new favorite lippie! Its long-lasting and high-pigment color makes my life so much simpler! It applies as a gloss but dries to a true matte finish. It comes in 28 colors according to Sephora! Yes please!!
Maybelline Master Probing Stick: Great for contouring…I’ve used both shades and love them equally.

Hot Tools Turbo Ionic Hair DryerThis has changed my hair drastically. I never paid attention to the damage hair dryers can cause to hair but this one sends ions into the airstream depositing them directly onto the hair. It helps break apart water molecules for faster drying. This has helped condition and soften my hair while reducing frizz.

Brow Stylist Definer in Blonde – I regularly use the Anastasia Brow Wiz eyebrow liner and needed a replacement in a pinch so I googled a good dupe for it and this L’Oreal pen came up. So far I’m really impressed with the quality – especially for the price! It doesn’t go on as well as the Anastasia one so you have to do a good job coloring in but the color and the size of the pen are almost identical.

Loreal Extraordinary Clay Mask: It really exists, and it’s ideal for those of us with chronically oily roots. Apply the mask before you shower, and then rinse. The blend of three clays absorb excess oil so you can redefine what it means to be squeaky clean.

Urban Decay Afterdark Eyeshadow PaletteUrban Decay does duo-tone shades like no one else, and this palette has six of them. This nighttime must-have also has six metallic shades all in jewel tones which are perfect for fun nights out with the girls.

Lorac Illuminating Primer: Instantly bring luminosity and life to your face while preserving your makeup throughout the day with LORAC Los Angeles Light Source 3-in-1 Illuminating Primer. This paraben-free, high-pearl primer is infused with light diffusing, soft focus pigments for a silky smooth, luminous glow.

Tula Overnight Rescue Cream:  Another game changer! I have really been trying to focus on bettering my skin and I started with Tula products. This is y far my favorite face cream to date. It works with your natural nightly repair process to reinvigorate skin overnight.
