Hi all! I know I don’t usually do posts like this, but I truly am a beauty fiend at heart and wanted to share some great products I’m using with you guys! I just started using a few of these recently, and some products on this list will stay in my beauty routine for the foreseeable future. Yes, this looks like a lengthy read. Maybe by the end I’ll have inspired you to try some new products. What I truly hope I get out of this post, however, is feedback from YOU. What are some of your favorite products? Leave me some suggestions in the comment section below!
If there’s one thing I can’t leave the house without doing, it’s defining my eyebrows. I will be the first to admit that I have a weird obsession with them. They’re oddly one of the first things I notice about a person– of course, not saying one’s brows say anything about his or her character 😉 Anastasia’s Brow Wiz is my absolute go to when it comes to shaping and filling in my brows! It’s super precise and glides on smoothly. Out of chunky, traditional pencils and powders, this ultra fine mechanical pencil takes the cake! It makes outlining and filling in my brows quick and easy.
I’ve been trying to up my skincare game and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer (aka what Mario Dedivanovic allegedly uses on Kim K) has been doing the trick! I originally started using Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser and the great experience I had with that lead me to start using the moisturizer. I love it! It keeps my skin smooth and hydrated, but without leaving it greasy. The best part? A little big goes a long way, so it lasts! It also doesn’t make me break out, which is another plus.
I just picked up both the Naked foundation and concealer with my 20% off Sephora VIB coupon, so I’m still feeling those out. I like both of them so far! I’ve been using Clinique Pore Refining Foundation for a while and the Naked Skin feels like a breath of fresh air compared to the Clinque! It’s a little watery, but it still somehow manages to have decent coverage, though it’s definitely not full coverage. I need to give it a few more days to really tell how I feel– there’s a chance I’ll migrate right back to Nars Sheer Glow, which is a long time favorite of mine. I’m really liking the concealer, though. It covers my dark circles well and gives off a bright, luminous look. I’ll definitely be using this for a highlight, too! I’m used to wearing Tarte’s Maracuja Creaseless Concealer, which I love, but I wanted to try something different.
The Benefit Roller Lash Mascara found it’s way into my makeup bag thanks to early mornings of QVC. I ended up picking it up at Sephora because I was so intrigued. I’ve always been a fan of drug store mascaras because I prefer to spend the big bucks on products like foundation and bronzer, but the Roller Lash has been worth every penny. People have asked me if my lashes are fake! This mascara is great if you want long, thick looking lashes without any clumping. It’s also build-able too. One swipe gives you long, sweeping lashes, but a few coats gives you a dramatic and bold look.
Last but not least, the Oribe treatment for blondes. My mom has been frequenting a salon that uses Oribe products and while I’ve always liked Oribe, I’ve stayed away from the products because of the hefty price tag they come with. This spray is an interesting addition to my hair routine and I don’t use it all that often. It’s essentially a mix between a purple toning shampoo and a conditioning treatment. I’ve been using purple shampoo regularly to keep my bright blonde pieces from looking yellow, which always tends to happen, but what I like about this treatment is that I get the effect of the purple shampoo, without my hair feeling extra dry after. It leaves my blonde bright and my locks soft!
