A girl can never have enough beauty products, right? If you’re like me, you love stores like Sephora, Ulta or Boots (Boots is like the British equivalent of Sephora). Even Target over the past couple of years has really upped their beauty aisles. While I love trying new products, once I find something I love, I usually stick with it. Many of the products I fell in love with I discovered through the free samples you get when you order online at Sephora. Three of the products below were discovered this way. Here are my favorite beauty products right now:
1. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz-my eyebrows are super light, thin and pretty much non-existent so a brow pencil is a must. I’ve used many brow fillers, pencils, powders over the years but this one is my favorite because it’s thin and blends great.
Do you have a signature scent or do you have a few perfumes you rotate through? I found this perfume in 2007 and love it. Somehow when I put it on it evokes feelings of wellbeing and the scent just makes me feel good. Unfortunately, it’s becoming harder to find so I better stock up! Luckily, I just found the next scent.
2. Incanto Shine By Salvatore Ferragamo For Women, Eau De Toilette Spray, 3.4-Ounce Bottle
I received this as a free sample with my Sephora order about a week ago. It is my new favorite scent..sorry Salvatore! It smells so clean and fresh, I just love it. Looks like Gucci also makes a Tuberose. Hmm… I wonder if it smells as good as the Gorgeous Gardenia?
3. Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau De Toilette Spray for Women, 1.7 Ounce
This is a little embarrassing but here it goes. About a year and a half ago, my face starting freaking out in the form of cystic acne along my jawline. It looked horrible and I felt really self conscious about it. I tried just about every kind of cleanser and acne product on the market. Much to my dismay, nothing seemed to work. After some extensive research I found a line by Obagi called Clenziderm. It’s a three step acne treatment and it has radically changed my skin. I haven’t had not one pimple or breakout of cystic acne after one week of using the product. I must add however that it takes about a week for your skin to get used to the treatment. The first few days it literally felt like someone was holding a blowtorch to my face for about a minute and my face experienced severe redness both of these annoyances went away within 7 days. Even if you don’t have acne, the cleanser alone is the best I’ve used. Just a tiny amount removes all traces of makeup and makes your face feel so good.
4. Obagi Clenziderm
I love a good lip gloss or lipstick. My daughter has inherited most of them for dress up since I’m so particular. Then, along came this line of lip glosses by Buxom. This color in particular I imagine is flattering on anyone. The line has a slight tingle but gives just the right amount of thickness and gloss that make your lips look fab.
5. Buxom Full on Lip Cream in Mudslide
For foundation and coverage I love bareMineral products. I started using the kit when my face was having it’s epic freak out. The makeup feels light and the brushes allow you to apply just the right amount of coverage.
6. bareMinerals Customizable Get Started Kit
These are just a few of the products that I use everyday and wouldn’t want to go without. What about you, are you a loyalist to certain products? What are your favorite products?
