Smashbox – Photo Finish Primer Water – To be honest, I was a little skeptical about purchasing this primer water, because I’ve never really been a huge fan of primers. I could never really tell a difference that it made with my foundation looking better, lasing longer, or minimizing pores, but this primer water does just that. It definitely makes the application of my foundation look flawless. This prime water has revitalizing electrolytes that are supposed to restore moisture and reawaken the skin, which I think it does just that!
MAC – Mineralize Skinfinish, Give Me Sun – I love these Mineralize Skinfinish powders they are so lightweight and look natural on the skin. The formula is baked for a dimensional, natural look. Give Me Sun bronzer is a perfect golden color, it really makes your skin look sun kissed. I like to take this on a large kabuki brush and sweep on my cheeks, forehead, and down the neck.
Eylure – Definition Lashes No. 126 – These lashes give me life! They look amazing with or without eyeliner, they are also so lightweight and comfortable to wear. They are a close dupe to cult favorite lashes from house of lashes, iconic.
L’Occitane – Almond Shower Oil – I received this shower oil as a gift, and I’m so thankful I did, I’m in love! I’ve never used a shower oil before, but now I want to try them ALL.I’m obsessed with how this makes my skin feel, and you can even use it as a shaving barrier, it leaves your legs feeling so silky smooth. The scent is so spa like and luxurious, it really is a little piece of heaven!
L’Oreal – Infallible Pro- Matte 24HR Foundation – This foundation seriously is a high end foundation found at the drugstore! I absolutely love this foundation. I find myself wanting to use it day after day, in the summertime my skin tends to get more oily in the t-zone and this foundation definitely keeps me matte and really does last all day! It doesn’t settle in my fine lines or pores and looks flawless in photos!
NYX – Intense Butter Gloss, Tres Leches – If you are a fan of the NYX original butter glosses, then you must try these! I love the shade Tres Leches, its the perfect everyday nude. These glosses are so pigmented, one swipe across the lips and you are good to go!
MAC – Fix+ Plus Coconut – If you are a fan of Fix+, you have to get your hands on these limited addition Fix+ sprays with scents. To be honest, I usually don’t like facial products that have scents to them. They are usually too overpowering or break out my overly sensitive skin, but these are amazing!! I especially love the coconut scented Fix+ it just makes you feel like you are on a tropical island soaking up the sun. I’m a huge fan of facials sprays, they make your skin look amazing. I’m dying to get my hands on the cucumber, that just sounds like a spa day in a bottle. They come in 5 different fragrances.
Urban Decay – Naked Skin Weightless Concealer – Perfection! This is one of the best concealers I’ve ever used hands down. It is so lightweight, yet full coverage, it blends out so seamlessly and beautiful. It never looks cakey under the eye! If you have a problem with your concealer looking drab try this one out! I will definitely be repurchasing.
Make up Geek – Foiled Eye shadow, Starry Eyed – You need this shadow in your life! I’m obsessed with the foiled eye shadows, they’re powder formula that feel and go on like a cream shadow, without the creasing! They’re one of the most pigmented, metallic looking shadows I’ve ever used. These shadows are just beautiful, if you haven’t tried Make Up Geek shadows you need to!
Anastasia Beverly Hills – Liquid Lipstick, Pure Hollywood – These liquid lipsticks are amazing, one of the best liquid lipsticks on the market! They are so opaque and pigmented, last on the lips forever and dry to a complete matte finish. These lipsticks glide on the lips smoothly and do not flake or dry out the lips like some liquid lipsticks do. Pure Hollywood is a great everyday nude and looks great on any skin tone!
