Make Up Forever – Pro Bronze Fusion, M30 – This bronzer looks absolutely stunning on the skin, I can’t get enough of it! It is definitely a must try if you like a natural looking sun kissed glow or contour. It looks and feels nearly undetectable on the skin, its like magic. The gel like texture of this bronzer is like no other bronzer I have ever used before. I recommend using a synthetic brush and swirl in a figure-8 motion in the pan to get the desired product pick up on your brush, for best application.
L’Occitane – Almond Milk Concentrate Lotion – Luxury in a jar, this lotion is just that. With its silky texture, a little bit it goes a long way. This lotion is ultra moisturizing, and never leaves your skin feeling greasy. If you want to feel luxurious and pampered this lotion will make you feel just that with its wonderful fresh, clean scent.
J.Cat Beauty – Triple Crown Baked Shadow, Gingerbread – Select Ulta stores just recently started carrying J.Cat Beauty, and when I saw the display with testers of some of the products, I had to test these beautiful shadows out. Let me just tell you, I’m so impressed! For these only being $5.00 each, they are amazing! These shadows are talc free, and so pigmented. They are also so creamy and apply beautifully. I will definitely be purchasing more, and trying more products from the affordable brand!
Tatcha – Dewy Skin Mist – I love the look of dewy skin in the summer time, and if you need a little help achieving that look, this is the product you need in your life. This luminous mist makes your skin look young, plump,and very radiant. I have used this both under my makeup and after application and had no problems with my foundation breaking up. I recommend, if you tend to get oily throughout the day or have oily skin, only mist on the area you want to look dewy or spray on a brush and apply on the skin for a concentrated area.
Becca – Champagne Pop Highlighter – Jaclyn Hill collaborated with Becca Cosmetics to create this beautiful highlighter and she did such an amazing job. Her thought process behind creating this highlighter is that she wanted everyone with all skin tones to be able to wear this highlighter. From the fairest of fair to darker skin tones, everyone could wear this beautiful highlighter.The shade is a stunning white golden color with peachy undertones, that gives you that beautiful glow from within. It is the same formulation of the other highlighters from Becca, so its just as pigmented and creamy. It’s a limited edition shade, so I recommend getting your hands on it ASAP!
TIGI Bed Head – Dumb Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo – I have been using purple shampoos for years to maintain my platinum blond hair. This toning shampoo is by far one of the best that I have tried, and I have tried tons! I use it 1-2 times a week depending on the look of my hair, and the desired shade of blonde I’m going for. This toning shampoo never leaves your hair stripped feeling like some blonde shampoos can. If you have blonde or silver hair and looking for a great toning shampoo, this is the one for you!
Mario Badescu – Hyaluronic Eye Cream – If you want your concealer under your eyes to go on like dream, you will love this eye cream. I love to apply this eye cream day and night, but more so before I apply my concealer. It makes my under eye area look so smooth and hydrated, never cakey. This hyaluronic eye cream is extremely hydrating, a tiny bit of this product goes a long way, and when I say tiny, that’s not an exaggeration. This product will last you forever and is at a great price point!
Maybelline – Lip Studio Color Blur Matte Lipstick – I’m extremely picky when it comes to matte lipsticks, most matte lip products are just too over drying and feel terrible on the lips. These matte lipsticks are so creamy, smooth and comfortable to wear. They don’t dry out the lips or look flakey. I was extremely impressed with pigmentation of these as well. If you are on a budget or just want to try out some new matte lip shades, try these! Maybelline has some of the best lipsticks from the drugstore, in my opinion.
Morphe – E18 Rounded Crease Brush – This brush is now one of my go to brushes for blending out shadow on my lower lash line. This brush makes blending out shadows under the eye so effortless and easy. It it basically fool proof. It is so soft, so it doesn’t irritate my under eye. I also like using this brush for direct crease shadow application.
Morphe – MB5 Brush – I’m obsessed with this brush! This brush is perfect for bronzer application. Just like the crease brush, this brush makes bronzer application so effortless and easy. It just blends out product beautifully and I can’t stop using it! I haven’t tried another brush to apply bronzer since I bought this one!
