Beauty Standouts

I haven’t done a roundup of my favorite beauty products in a hot minute. I guess it’s because I haven’t been wearing much make-up since it’s 5 million degrees outside. However, the few products I have been using, are STUNNERS.

This Kenra Volume Spray is a travel sized hairspray/volume booster that I purchased out of impulse on Amazon. It keeps my hair full of volume throughout the day. Definitely worth a try.

Loreal’s Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara – NOT  THE WATERPROOF KIND – I love, love, love this mascara. I bought mine from Target. I have puny, baby lashes, so anything that claims to give them life and volume is coming home with me.  The brush is a great quality and really separates and coats each lash evenly.

Dior’s Forever foundation is the best high-end foundation I have EVER used. I purchased it from Dillards. The coverage is super buildable, which may sound like a turn off to some, but I don’t like heavy foundations at all. It even smells high-end. So good.

This may take you back to your middle school years, but Nollie is one of my favorite perfumes. I purchased this from Pac Sun.  It’s scent has hints of citrus and is great to wear everyday, not just for special occasions.

NYX ultra HD concealer is a new favorite of mine. I am a die-hard Maybelline Fit Me girl, but this concealer is a close competitor.  It is so creamy, full coverage, and light weight. You need this in your beauty collection. I purchased it from Target.

I ran out of my trusty Kat Von D and my Stilla eyeliner and purchased a drugstore liner from Target to test out instead. This NYX Epic Eyeliner is such a good alternative for a lower price. It’s black, doesn’t bleed, and the felt tip applicator is super precise. It’s a game changer for me.

New Beauty Products – Ulta Mini Haul

So, I did a little damage in the make-up department. Whoops! I picked up this adorable Lorac eyeshadow pallet with beautiful matte and shimmer shades. It has warm and cool tones – perfect for someone like me, who loves both. My skin has been super if-y lately. It kinda looks great, and kinda looks awful. I picked up this Mario Badescu cleanser for $8.00. I can’t wait to see how it works, I’ve used it for the last week and can tell a HUGE difference in the texture of my skin. I can’t wait to see the long-term results. I also purchased Too Faced’s lip injection gloss. It is supposed to give your lips a “fuller” look. I’ve heard people say it completely burns their lips, but it doesn’t burn mine, and I love the smell (it reminds me of tanning lotion lol). I also impulse purchased the Loreal lash paradise mascara simply because of the packaging. I’ve used it a few times. I don’t hate it. I also don’t love it. I think I’d really like it if it wasn’t waterproof. I should have read the label lol.

We’re halfway to the weekend y’all. “My soul yearns for You in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for You.” Isaiah 26:9
