I am the type of person who loves to try new beauty products. I am always looking for the next best product to take my beauty routine to the next level. I am certainly not one to stick with the same haircut or shade of lipstick for years and years. We all know that woman who has had the same haircut and color for over a decade right? My philosophy is to be very open minded and never stop evolving. How else would I have come across these *AMAZING* game changers? I want to be clear that this is not a sponsored post and these are truly items that have transformed my beauty life in a better quality or more efficient way and solving a whole host of problems.
Bliss Fabulips Lip Softener
I always have dry lips that are peeling or start to peel later in the day. It's so annoying and makes lipstick or lipgloss look so gross. I got this lip conditioner for free with my bliss order and I will never look back. I want to be clear, this is no average chapstick. I apply it right after I do my base so it has time to sink in while I finish my makeup and by the time I get to my lips they are primed and perfectly conditioned for color. I no longer get the peels later in the day!
T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer
My old hair dryer has so heavy and took forever to dry my hair so when it died I was more than ecstatic about upgrading. While this dryer is not cheap, it has cut back on my drying time by at least 50%, maybe even 75%. I can now dry my hair in less than 10 minutes. It is lightweight and my hair has never been more smooth or healthy. It is clinically proven to be healthier than air drying your hair, yeah, crazy right?! For something you use almost every single day, it's important and this dryer has totally been worth the investment!
Bliss Buffing Foundation Brush
I was using a MAC foundation brush and just wasn't happy with how it was blending my base so I decided on a whim to toss this in my cart and try it out. This might be more like a life changer if I am honest. I put a glob of foundation on the back of my hand and patted this brush onto my cheek and OH MY GOD! It went on like butter. So easy and smooth and blended. It physically felt good and I am forever changed. I love that the bristles are anti-microbial so it keeps the bacteria at bay. I wash it about once every week still to keep it fresh.
Up & Up Oil Absorbing Sheets
You can get these guys at Target and they work wonders in oil absorption. You never want to just cake on more powder when you have a shiny t-zone. Use one of these to absorb that oil and then you can freshen up with a little powder if needed. I never leave the house without these in my bag.
Bliss "That's Incredi-Peel"! Glycolic Resurfacing Pads
By now you know that I have problem skin. I am always struggling with breakouts, sometimes painful ones and have been on a 15 year journey to clear skin. I am essentially an acne SME (subject matter expert). I have been using these every night over the last few weeks since I recently had a terrible hormonal breakout and my skin is recovering miraculously. The leftover spots are fading super fast and my skin has NEVER been softer or smoother. What pores? Even with a few remaining bumps my skin is in fantastic condition. I feel like I am having a facial every night while I sleep. I plan to scale back to every other night with these once I get cleared up but they will forever be a part of my skincare routine.
NARS Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil
I am really feeling a more natural lip look this Spring with lip gloss and lighter lipsticks. The NARS Velvet Matte lipstick pencil is just what I was looking for. It's a more casual version of lipstick. It goes on smooth but is not drying. The pigment is fantastic and it has great lasting power. I plan to stock up on more colors of these pencils ASAP.
Paul Mitchell "Hot Off The Press" Heat Spray
This spray is meant to go on dry hair right before you use a flat iron or curling iron. It not only protects your hair from the heat but it seams in split ends and frizz for a super smooth finish. I was having issues with getting my hair straight in the AM but by the time I got through breakfast and logged in at work I was starting to frizz. Not anymore! My hair is straight and smooth all day long. It really withstands the humidity. I sometimes give my hair a light spray to finish off the style too.
Butter London Nail Polish
I was recently looking for a safer nail polish and picked up a bottle Butter London because they do not add formaldehyde, toluene or DBP to any of their nail formulas. I have always admired the colors because they are just so incredible. After wearing these, I am completely converted. The quality is exceptional. I would rather have 5 bottles of Butter London than 30 bottles of OPI. I love how great it looks and it lasts for quite a long time compared to other polishes. I use the Butter London Nail Foundation base coat underneath.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great one!
