These products have been saving my life and giving me all the life that I need! I’m exaggerating a bit but these are my most frequently grabbed for things out of the last couple of months.
I’m just going to start this out by saying my nails have found their miracle! I’ve been raving about these Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polishes for about a month now, three polishes in, they haven’t let me down. No need for a base coat, just polish and seal the deal with the top coat. I’m all for cheesy catch phrases right now, so just bare with me.
Shea Butter has been saving my dark spots and showing them the brighter side of town, literally. Slowly but surely they are lightening up. I got this small container at my local beauty supply for $1. I’ve had this for probably 2 months and just halfway through.
I’ve added three of the four kabuki brushes to my makeup routine: the rounded, rounded angled, and the flat top kabuki brush. The rounded kabuki is great a buffing in foundation. All of these brushes are dense and transfer the product like a dream so that your face is seamless. The rounded angled kabuki is perfect for blending out concealer under the eye, or any area you want to highlight with concealer, and buffing out a contour.
The flat top kabuki is a match made in heaven for Maybelline Dream Pure BB Cream. With a dense brush that doesn’t absorb the product, you can achieve great coverage from this BB cream. With one layer I can nicely cover most of my dark spots and that ok because it isn’t a foundation. It starts to break down after about 5 hours but at the end of the night you’re not completely spotty and oily. Love this stuff and it has a salicylic acne treatment in it.
Maybelline Mega Plush Volum’ Express is the perfect everyday mascara. It doesn’t clump or give you hard lashes, it simply enhances your lashes with some volume and a little length. I wear this just about everyday and it looks so natural, great for an everyday face.
City Color Blush Quad has to be heaven sent from the makeup gods with little glitter fairies carrying it down. This is the best $4 I have ever spent on blushes. I’m not even a blush lover but this palette, you need in! This is the Collection 2 palette and if you want to see swatches just click here.
Last but not least, Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner. I got this in my Ipsy bag a month or two ago and I just can’t put it down. The tip is similar to a paint brush and feels like its made with synthetic hairs. You can create any kind of line with it. Just to warn you, the reviews for this are very hit and miss. Some say the pen exploded on them, the tip was dry, and anything else that can go wrong with a liquid eyeliner pen. It works great for me and hopefully Jesse’s Girl fixes whatever the problem was.
Well these are my current favorites! Thanks for reading!
