I think I love beauty products more than a normal person should. And I also love hearing "real people" reviews of products before I spend my hard-earned cash on makeup and skincare products! So here are some recent purchases and my honest opinions on each.
I had so many recommendations for great BB and CC creams (CC = Color Correcting). After doing a little research, I purchased It Cosmetics CC Cream in color Light. What do I love the most about it? SPF 50! Now, this bad boy is $38 so I did have a little bit of sticker shock (being that my other tubes of BB cream have been in the $8-12 range). But with that said, it has already become a fast favorite. The coverage is really good and it creates a smooth, even facial tone. Paraben free. And the major sun protection will make my dermatologist oh-so-proud. I give this an A+++.
Available online at Amazon, Ulta, and Beauty.com. Free shipping at Amazon and beauty.com, and free shipping at Ulta.com if your order is $50 (love the free samples they include in packages).
Santa brought me the Clarisonic Mia 2 and I'm loving it! Now, this brush is $149 so I'm expecting big things ... I was jazzed to see that one of my favorite YouTube beauty vloggers had such a sparkling review of it (here).
Available online at Amazon and Nordstrom with free shipping at each!
I posted last week about my favorite mascara find ... the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara! There are three days left for sales here -- you can buy through the 18th with my local rep Courtney through my little online party. Courtney stands behind this product and will make sure you are 100% happy with your purchase! I am a full convert and just love that the fibers are made from tea leaves. I wear contacts so I'm careful about what may get in my eyes.
Available in my online party thru this Saturday.
I've actually owned this for a while thanks to a recommendation from Tess ... but just haven't blogged about it yet. I want to shout from the rooftops that I am in loooove with the Victoria's Secret Pout Lip Stain. The best colors, and they stay on forever without being goopy or sticky. I own three different colors (and am wearing Endless Pink in the photos above). They are $10 (or 2/$15 or 4/$20). The other two hues I have are Eternal Flame and Forever Yours. All three are favorites.
Available online at Victoria's Secret
