MAKE UP

Already Have/Purchasing Again:

  1. Green Clean: I tried this on a recommendation from my girlfriend and I couldn’t be more pleased. I was a little skeptical, because at first touch it does feel a little bit greasy but once it is applied to your face and washed off it feels so fresh and clean. It seems a little bit pricey, but I only use about a dime sized amount each time!
  2. Buxom “Dolly”: I used to use Buxom Lip Plumping Gloss religiously – however, they had a color called “Bianca” and they discontinued it a couple years back and I hadn’t bought since. So, when I was seeing these on every bloggers’ feed I took the plunge. I ordered “Dolly” and “Julep” – I am obsessed with “Dolly”, but “Julep” is a little too berry/purplish. I do love how it applies and the generous amount of “tint” it gives your lips. I am going to order the “Hot Toddy” shade this go around!
  3. All Nighter Setting Spray: I don’t have much to say about Urban Decay’s All Nighter Setting Spray. I have used this since High School and it is still just as good.
  4. The POREfessional Face Primer: This is another one of those products that I have sworn by for many years. I love the “matte” look, always have and always will. This lets you start with a matte fresh face and the consistency is incredible.
  5. Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick Pencil “Cruella”: If you didn’t know this about my – I am a lipstick queen. I wear BIG BOLD BRIGHT colors and feel naked without lipstick. This is my GO TO red. I tend to lean more towards the blue toned reds – and this is exactly that. It’s crisp, matte, and the perfect red.
  6. Naked3 Palette: This palette is a little bit more “pricey” but completely worth it. I have had a total of 3 of these palettes and I have used this palette since college. The colors are the perfect neutrals.
  7. Tarte “In Bloom Clay” Palette: This is a newer palette that I have tried out. I absolutely love it. I love the consistency of the eye shadow and how it lays on the eyelid. However, I don’t think its necessary to have both of these palettes because they do have similar colors!

Trying Out:

  1. Tarte Smooth Operator Finishing Powder: I am looking for the a setting powder and just haven’t come across one I love – I am trying this one out after researching the best options. I am intrigued by the “Amazonian Clay” in this one. I will report back!
  2. The POREfessional: Matte Rescue Invisible Finish Mattifying Gel: I had previously mentioned that I loved the “matte” look. This is new from Benefit Cosmetics and in the same line as my beloved POREfessional that I have used forever. I am a little concerned that the consistency is gel, but I am going to order the “mini” to try it out!
  3. Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner: This is another recommendation – I am horrible at regularly cleaning my brushes so, I am hoping if I find a good cleanser I will do it more often!

HaIR

Already Have/Purchasing Again:

  1. Living Proof Dry Shampoo: I defintiely get the “hype” behind this product. Its fantastic – it doesn’t leave residue or make your hair feel heavy. Definitely one of my favorite dry shampoos – however, my one complaint would be that I feel as though I go though their bottles very quickly. I am happy to say they have finally starting offering a bigger bottle so, I’m going to try it out!
  2. Moroccainoil Dry Shampoo: I have used this one for a while – I always use the lighter tones even though I feel like I could get away with the darker toned one. This is another GREAT option for dry shampoo!
  3. Amika Soulfood Nourishing Hair Mask: So, in High School I used to dye my hair PITCH BLACK out of a box – cringe worthy, I know. However, I started using this mask after my dark days and it helped my hair tremendously. Now, I obviously don’t do that but it still makes my hair feel incredibly healthy. This is by far one of my favorite hair products.
  4. Bumble+Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer: While I haven’t been putting my heat on my hair these days, this protective primer is key. When things go back to normal I will be using this on a daily basis.
  5. Bumble+Bumble Prêt-à-Powder: So, this powder can be used as dry shampoo but, I don’t really love dry shampoo in powder form. However, this does WONDERS for volume. I tend to find that my hair gets “heavy” and ways down. I use this to amp up my roots and its magical.
  6. Drybar Buttercup Blow Dryer: I HEART DRYBAR FOREVER. I bought this hair dryer when I lived in NYC and then proceeded to make my mom and sister do the same thing. My mom now owns the blow dryer and straightener. Its a little pricey but their products LAST forever and make my hair feel freshly blown out every single time!

Trying Out:

  1. Bumble+Bumble Post Workout Dry Shampoo Mist: Clearly, I am a big fan of Bumble+Bumble so I am very intrigued with this “Post Workout” mist. I have been looking for something to use on my hair after I get sweaty and gross. The “normal” dry shampoo just doesn’t do it for me – I will be reporting back with this!
  2. Amika Un.Done Volume and Matte Texture Spray: Amika is another brand and I absolutely love. I am eager to try this volume and “matte” texture spray. Sometimes, I feel as though these sprays just make my hair feel “full” of product but I am always up for trying something new!
  3. Hold It Together: Makeup Hair Clip: I am excited about these – they are only $8 and I am always trying to hold my hair back from my face while doing my makeup. This was a no brainer for me!
  4. Ouai Wave Spray Mini: When I lived in NYC, Lilliana swore by Ouai products. I only tried and few and was very indifferent but I love the idea of “Wave Spray” especially for the upcoming summer months! I am just going to get a mini to try it out!

SKINCARE

Already Have/Purchasing Again:

  1. Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser: I LURVE THIS CLEANSER. It makes me face feel so fresh and it isn’t horribly expensive. I am trying to get better about taking care of my skin and this was the perfect place to start!
  2. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask: I have been using this for about a year now. As prevouisly mentioned, I am a big “matte” lipstick fan – the only problem is that “matte” lipsticks dry out my lips ridicously and my lips get incredibly chapped. I am weird about chapsticks, I feel like they always leave a gross taste in my mouth or they aren’t actually helpful. Until this, this lip mask has worked wonders. I did have to scale back on the amount I used, I used to lather this stuff on thick and I think it was causing my chin to break out. However, a little goes a long way. I am still on my first bottle – getting ready to order a new one!
  3. Shane’s FAV – Jack Black Beard Oil: Shane has extremely sensitive skin and is a FREAK about taking care of it. He has one of the softest “scruffs” ever. I didn’t even know that was possible. I randomly bought this beard oil for him when I used to work at Nordstrom and he has used it every since!
  4. Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium Eau de Parfum: Alright, so I know this is pricey but this is my GO TO fall/winter perfume. Yes, I have perfumes for different seasons – go ahead and judge me. So, although this is expensive it lasts me a while and smells AMAZING!
  5. Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller: It took me a while to get on board with these “face rollers” but now that I have – I am never looking back. Sleep is hard so, dark circles come easy. I put this in the freezer and do it in the mornings while I drink my coffee – its called multitasking.
  6. Shane’s FAV – Sephora Collection Nourishing Moisturizer – Hydrate & Repair: Again, Shane’s skin is ridiculously sensitive but extremely dry. I searched high and low for a moisturizer that would help him. We tried extremely expensive products that did nothing for him and ended up finding this “Sephora Collection” moisturizer and it has worked wonders!
  7. Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks: This was another product that I was introduced to in NYC. Again, sleep is hard and circles come easy. There are a million different eye masks out there but these were the first I tried and loved them!

Trying Out:

  1. Peace Out Acne Healing Dots: Alright, so I have been fortunate when it comes to acne. I get it in one spot – my chin. Always have, ever since I can remember. It tends to be hormonal or brought on by stress (so, it does happen frequently). I have used “spot” treatments forever, so, I am wanting to try something new. We’ll see!
  2. Innisfree Super Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Clay Mask: I love masks. Especially in the times of quarantine. I feel like this is the perfect time to try some new ones, and I am a sucker for Clay Masks. I have never used this brand, so I will keep you posted.
  3. Sephora Collection Ultra Glow Serum: Glow + Strengthen Vitamin C Serum: My mother swears by this stuff. She basically is their own personally spokeswomen and tries to sell it to me every time I talk to her about skincare. So, I am finally caving in and trying it this round!
