I’ve added a few new beauty products into the regular rotation in the last month or so, so I thought I’d walk you through them and tell you why I love them! A new foundation, a beautiful highlighter, a great mascara, and a couple of lip products I’m loving are all on the list.
While I still use this CC cream nearly every day as foundation, I wanted to find a long-wear, full coverage foundation that worked for me. I like a full-coverage option for special events, or if my skin is particularly bad and needs all the coverage it can get. I love how this one goes on and it truly does last all day – I can even do a “body shower” after the gym and my makeup still looks pretty darn good! I wear the shade 2C3 Fresco.
I love to add a highlight to my cheekbones, upper lip, and under my eyebrows. It adds a pretty glow to my makeup look and is an easy way to brighten things up a bit. This highlighter is one of the best I’ve used. A little goes a long way, which I love, and it looks so beautiful when the light hits it!
I’ve been using this mascara for the last month or so and really like it. It’s much more friendly to my wallet than my other favorite mascara and it creates about the same impact, too! I wear 1-2 coats and that’s all I need for full and voluminous lashes.
I like a more understated lip color in the summer, so when I found this pretty nude and this subtle pink, I was excited! The formula doesn’t dry out my lips at all and the color wears really well. They also look pretty mixed together.
The last but definitely not the least of my new products is this lip mask. I’ve talked about ti before, but now that I’ve used it for some time, I feel like I can really rave about it. It makes my lips feel so dang good when I wake up in the morning. Goes on smooth and lasts all through my sleep (but doesn’t transfer to my pillow or sheets! If you’re a lip mask kind of gal, you need this!
