I have some makeup products I am super excited to talk about! I am sure most of you by now has tried or at least heard about the new L’oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. This mascara has quickly become my absolute favorite and I understand the hype surrounding it! It does everything I want and it’s drugstore which makes it even better! It thickens my lashes and gives them a feathery look that I love and have been looking for a mascara to do. This has become a “can’t live without” type of relationship! I suggest everybody give it a try!
My next favorite is a foundation that isn’t new but is new to me. This is the No7 Stay Perfect Foundation. I got mine from Ulta but this brand is also sold at Target. It’s a medium coverage and makes your skin look healthy. I think this foundation is great for summer because it’s not too heavy and has leaves a beautiful finish to the skin. I would definitely like to try more from this brand. Do you have any products you recommend from No7?
If you have been in TJMaxx lately you must check out their makeup section! They have so many high end brands now! It’s crazy! I found this Buxom blush there in the shade Breathless. I love this color for summer!
Last but not least is a lip paint from L’oreal in the color Wild Rose. It’s Super pretty and I have even used it as a cream blush!
What are some of your summer favorites?
The BEST drugstore eyeshadow I have ever tried is the Loreal Infallible in the shade Amber Rush! The quality of this eyeshadow is incredible! The formula is a mix between a cream and powder. It glides on so effortlessly and lasts all day long! Amber Rush is a rose gold shimmery color that looks stunning on anyone! I would highly recommend !
I would love to try more shades of this shadow! Let me know your favorites!
Oh and on every other day as well!
If you haven’t tried this mascara yet… it’s time!
The wand has a curved shape which gives your lashes a nice curl! The formula is great and doesn’t smudge at all. I really love the way my lashes look when I wear this mascara and it has been my go to all summer. The only downside would be removing it. It’s a lot harder to remove than my other mascaras…
Maybelline Lash Sensational is so fetch!
What drugstore mascaras do you swear by?!
I have always wanted to try the Thayers Witch Hazel, but I could never find it in any drugstores. I finally bought it from Amazon and have been using every morning and night. So far, I am really loving it! My sensitive skin has no issues with it … and that’s saying a lot! I’ve tried the Dickinson’s Witch Hazel, but that always made my skin feel dried out. So, if you are looking for a toner that’s gentle and alcohol free I would highly recommend. After I use Thayers my skin feels clean and soft, but not stripped of moisture. It smells like roses which I like, but that’s the only thing I could see people having an issue with.
A great product worth trying!
Summertime is the best time! As we transition to the new season these are some of the new beauty products I have been using and loving!
With tanned skin I love a brighter lip! I tend to stick with mauves, but come summer I am ready for some color! I have been loving the Maybelline lipstick in the color Vibrant Mandarin! It’s such a perfect summer shade! The orange/pink color compliments a summer tan perfectly!
My next favorite is the Butter Bronzer by Physicians Formula. This bronzer literally smells like summer. It has a tropical/coconut scent! The skin tone is pretty neutral which I really love about this bronzer. It’s doesn’t make you look orange… The packaging is also super cute and tropical.
I’m sure by now everyone has heard about the new Wet n Wild Highlighting Powder in the shade Precious Petals. It was so hard for me to get my hands on this baby! I checked everywhere and it was always sold out. I finally found it in K-Mart. This highlight is so gorgeous. It gives your skin such a pretty glow and is super affordable. It’s creamy and pigmented. I use a fan brush and lightly highlight my cheekbones and brow bones with this highlight.
Along with beauty products, perfume is fun to change up this time of year too. I am so obsessed with Thymes Kimono Rose. Its a floral, girly scent that I love! I’ve been wearing it non stop!
Last but not least I think a cute pair of cat eye sunnies are a must for the summer! I think this style of sunglasses looks so chic! I bought these from Target!
What’s your summer favorites?!
It’s official! I found my favorite hand cream! If you haven’t tried Soap & Glory Hand Food yet you should! The scent is amazing, makes my hands super soft, and never leaves a greasy residue! Target carries this brand.
P.S. How cute is their packaging!
These are the products that I swear by! My go-to makeup !
First of all I would probably die without the beauty blender. I love love love it! I cannot say enough good things about the Beauty Blender. In my opinion it is the best tool to apply makeup. I use it to apply my foundation, concealer, and powder. It’s a game changer.
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation is such a beautiful foundation. I have discovered that applying it with a dry beauty blender works best for me because it is a very watery foundation. It makes your skin look flawless and never looks cakey!
Milani Matte lipstick in the shade “Naked” is such a great color for every day. It’s a perfect nude! Milani’s lipsticks are great quality and inexpensive.
NYX is another brand that never lets me down! I tend to use this blush a lot! It is in the shade “Pinched”.
MaxFactor 2000 Calorie Mascara is incredible. Gives my lashes tons of volume and never clumpy!
What are some of your all time favorites that you couldn’t live without?!
Sometimes we need that extra help of concealer to make us look … well.. not so tired! Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer is my BFF when it comes to ugly dark circles! It’s inexpensive and gets the job done! My eyes look brighter and more awake!
With any concealer make sure you set it with a powder after applying. This will avoid creasing and keeping it in place all day. I set mine with the Makeup Forever loose powder which is another one of my absolute favorites which you can read about here > MAKE UP FOR EVER
