My latest trip to the beauty store was pretty simple and straight to the point. Although this beauty haul is small its pretty kick ass and I am real excited about it. These are some of my latest favorites as well as great staples I would definitely recommend.
This nail polish is great for two main reasons...
1. Its super convenient: Not only does it dry fast (like 10 min) but it lasts up to two weeks with no chips, and you don't need a base coat.
2. It looks legit: We all love the gel nail look because its perfectly shiny and has great color. This does that without the UV/LED light (convenient right)?
You can buy this polish in a set with the top coat included or you can buy the single colors by themselves.
This time around I purchased a really cute simple color called "Birthday Suit". I got this one in a set with the top coat because I wanted a top coat for lighter colors, I will use the other one I currently have for darker colors.
I then got a basic black called "Blacky O" because its one of my favorite looks and I wanted a black in the miracle mani for the gel look.
Bye Bye Under Eye
The first time I tried this concealer was in an ipsy bag. I fell in love the first time I used it and have stuck with it since. It actually replaced my Tarte concealer which was surprising to me because I have been such a fan of that concealer for a while now.
Bye Bye Under Eye has such a rich and creamy look to it. It covers up my dark circles and it stays on all day.
It sort of reminds me of the rich consistency you find in theatre makeup without it being to caky if that makes sense?
It Cosmetics often surprises me and I think what they are doing with their products is great! For example this isnt just a great concealer. It has collagen in it and Vitamins C & K.
"Collagen is a part of the connective tissue that in the skin helps in firmness, suppleness and constant renewal of skin cells. Collagen is vital for skin elasticity."
Along with it being a great product, a little goes a long way and the full size is a huge tube. No doubt this will last me all year which makes me and my wallet very happy!
The POREfessional by Benefit
This one is obvious to those of you who follow a lot of beauty gurus. Its a favorite among many of us.
Benefit as you may know is one of my very very favorite makeup brands. They just seem to do it right.
The POREfessional is a pore minimizer as well as a primer. I apply it to my t-zone to help with pores, priming, and oil control.
Applying this along with some concealer and a little light powder is a great way to dodge using a shiz load of foundation on your face.
Although this may not be a necessary item to everyone I think its one more of us should consider. Dont underestimate the difference a great primer will do to your overall look. Definitely check it out next time you are in your local beauty store. They do have a baby sized one for $10 if you are curious but not ready to commit.
Have you tried any of these, if so what did you think? What are some of your favorite beauty products?
