Recent Beauty Favs

May 20, 2014

Around the same time as my crazy hormonal changes, I went on a major beauty binger. Once I fall down the rabbit hole that is sephora and nordstrom beauty sections....I'm a goner. But there were many products I wanted to try, and I like to change up my make up routine like people like to change their underwear, so lets introduce you to the new troops shall we? 

1. Smashbox Hydrating Primer- First up, this primer! If you aren't using a primer before you are putting on your foundation, or bb cream, or war paint, you are truly not get the full results of your products. This is the hydrating version of the Smashbox photo ready primer, and I love it. It keeps my skin nice and moist and gives my face make up that dewy spring feel. 

2. Too Faced BB Cream- I was on a serious hunt for a BB cream that I actually liked. I took recommendations from everyone and nothing seemed to gel with my skin. Insert this product! Nice and light coverage for the days where I dont need that much help. I could totally wear this everyday though. It also gives my skin a nice golden look since it has a tint to it. 

3. Younique 3D Mascara- Okay, I am thinking I will have to dedicate an entire post to this product in the very near furture! Have you seen this stuff? It is mascara on steroids! Forget about false lashes if you use this stuff. It thickens and lengthens. AMAZING! I found it randomly and thought I had to try it. Game changer in the beauty world folks. Look it up...love it. You're welcome. 

4. YSL Touche Eclat Foundation- Okay this one is definitely a spluuuuurge! It has somewhat of a cult following, and I debated on trying it for a long time. But I pulled that trigger and I am never looking back. Not something I would wear for everyday, but when I am going out and need more coverage, this is what I turn too. Such a silky feel, a little goes a long way. And it smells nice. 

5. Beauty Blender- This isn't really recent, but I just bought a few more so I thought I would throw it in. These little sponges are amazing for putting on foundation. I used to be a strict foundation brush person but then I bought these and my world was rocked. They are great for highlighting and conturing as well. And it is wash and reuse, so they last awhile. 

6. Dior Addict Lip Maximizer- Pump, pump, pump it up! Pretty much what this product would scream if it could talk. I love a good lip plumper, but have found that most don't actually do anything for my lips. This one really works, for me at least. It has a tingle to it but nothing over powering, and you can see a noticeable difference in the lip to plump-age ratio. Warning- the tingle lasts a little while so refrain from kissing your significant other or they might say "what the hell? are you producing venom now?" Winner!!

7. YSL Lipstick in Lingerie Pink- I never wore lipstick until about a year ago. I got kind of sick of having to reapply lip gloss all the time. This is again, another splurge. But for me it will last since I don't wear lipstick on the daily. This is the prettiest baby pink, and YSL lipsticks are so soft and luxurious.  

8. Estee Lauder Concealer- All my sleep deprived mamas in the house let me introduce you to your new best friend, she goes by the name of Double Wear Concealer. This stuff is the bees knees people. Great for highlighting and concealing. And on that note, has anyone ever tried to explain highlighting and conturing to a male? It is like explaining where babys come from. So.many.questions. Anyway, this product does what it should, conceals. And I swear I hear it whisper "your secrets are safe with me" after I put it one. I love it!! 


So let's talk shop people, any products you are loving? Do you have any of these?

    1. Did not even know other people sold it. I found it on a blog and just ordered it off the website. Never tried mary kay before either. But I do like this mascara!

  6. I've always wanted to try the beauty blender! Any idea if it's any different from the cheapy sponges that you find in the makeup aisles at drug store type places?
