Hey friends! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today I wanted to share with you some makeup items that I have been loving recently! Some of these items I have been using and loving for months, and others are more recent finds. These nine products are items I have been using on almost a daily basis, so I thought they would be worth the share!
This primer is very popular and for good reason. I remember using it a few years ago but just started using it again since I received a travel size of it. I think it does an excellent job at obviously filling in pores as well as smoothing and blurring. tip: If you’re wanting to give a more expensive product a try, purchase the travel size first. Mini sizes of lots of products can be found near the cash wrap at Ulta & Sephora!
I loveee trying out foundations. I’ve been trying this one out for a few weeks now. What I like most about this foundation is the finish. It is one of the most natural-looking foundations I have ever tried! I usually go for a matte finish foundation due to my oily skin, but the natural finish of this foundation is beautiful and super lightweight. PLUS there are 40 shades to choose from! tip: Did you know you can ask for a free, small sampling of a foundation you want to try at Sephora?
This powder is a drugstore dupe for the popular (and much pricier) Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder. The Laura Mercier powder is a fave of mine, but since I am getting low, I decided to give this affordable (under $10) dupe a try. I agree that this powder is a great alternative and works really well! Although I think the Laura Mercier powder is stilllll my #1, the Coty Airspun powder is an awesome powder and something I have been using every day!
This blush was part of the birthday gift from Sephora this year. I’ve been a huge fan of Tarte for years and this blush didn’t disappoint. I love the mauve undertone and the pigmentation is soft yet buildable! I really do feel like it lasts a long time on the skin as well!
I had heard so much about this palette and couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. This is one of the products that I’ve been using for months and am still obsessed with! The pigmentation of the shadows is amazing and they blend out so nicely! I would definitely call this eyeshadow palette one of my essentials and am in love with all of the berry tones and shimmer shades.
If you read my review on this palette a few weeks ago, then you already know how much I love this eyeshadow palette. It’s out of stock (again) because of the huge popularity and major hype. Needless to say, keep your eye out for when this gem comes back in stock! It is worth the hype!
This product has been one of my most exciting finds lately. I can definitely see the difference when I use this and love the way it lengthens and volumizes my lashes! This primer is used underneath your regular mascara and does the trick! I apply it to my lashes and then wait about 30 seconds before applying my regular mascara. tip: Use this primer with the lash paradise mascara (see below) for a match made in heaven! It gives you the effect of false lashes!
The hype about this new mascara is off the charts so of course, I had to give it a go. I do totally agree that it gives both length and volume. Another big test for me was to see if it smudged or flaked by the end of the day, and so far, it has lasted great throughout the day! This mascara has been compared to high end ones and I think it certainly holds its own.
Although I don’t see a ton of “plumping” effect, this gloss is really pretty. I have this gloss in several colors and what I love is how moisturizing and non-sticky it is! I am a huge fan of glosses and these ones can usually be found with me in my purse for quick and easy application throughout the day!
I’d love to hear what products you’ve been loving lately. I keep a running wishlist on my phone of products I have my eye on so any recommendations are always welcome! Are there any new launches you are looking forward to? I am anxious to try out Kandee Johnson’s line with Too Faced! I hope you have a great rest of your day! xo.
