New Faves

Standard

Wow. Over a month since my last post. I am a terrible blogger!! Good news is, I have lots of new things that I’ve tried since my last post, and I thought I’d share my faves! First of all, September’s Birchbox! Last month introduced me to the best foundation product I have ever used, Wei’s Ideal Skin Perfect Finish CC cream. CC stands for color control cream, and this stuff does just that. It creates amazing coverage and evens skin tone perfectly, without leaving my face feeling greasy or like its caked with make-up. It feels very natural and looks amazing. Definitely my new favorite foundation. Try it, it’s awesome. Also in my September BB was the Vasanti BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator. By far the best facial exfoliator I’ve tried. It combines papaya enzymes, which break down dead skin cells and even skin tone, with microderm crystals to buff skin, and the result is glowy, beautiful, baby butt smooth skin. Awesome, awesome product! Last month, I also blew all the BB points I had saved up and placed my first shop order, and I finally ordered, among others, the product that I had been wanting for months now, Eyeko’s Skinny Liquid Liner in purple. I LOVE this eyeliner!!! I want it in other colors now, but the purple is amazing!! It’s so bright and pretty without being over the top. The applicator almost reminds me of a Sharpie, like a marker for your eyes. It is incredibly easy to apply and goes on smoothly, and amazing. The applicator is designed to make it easy to do a thin or a thick line, depending on the look you want to go for. I’ve never been that big a fan of liquid liner, but this has changed my mind for good. It’s incredible!!

Another new favorite I’ve discovered is Miss Jessie’s Pillow Soft Curls. I should start by saying that I have wavy hair. The type of hair that can be super curly if I use curling products (which are usually beach wave type products), but also straightens very easily, so I can go either way with it. The first time I used this, I used entirely too much, and it made my hair feel full of product and almost a little crunchy even. BUT, I tried it again, using less, and it worked wonders! It made my hair curl up nicely and left it soft and smelling like fabric softener, which I kind of love! It’s definitely a great product for any type of curly hair, as long as you figure out the right amount to use for your hair.

Lastly, I recently found the perfect body butter. I am not a regular user of lotions, although I do use them. Not long ago, I got Shea Terra’s Marula Whipped Shea Butter. I absolutely love it! It’s super duper moisturizing without feeling greasy, and it smells amazing and leaves my skin feeling so very soft. There are so many more amazing scents that I can’t wait to try! I love this stuff!!

So there’s the low-down on all the new favorites I’ve found, and hopefully they will soon be some of your favorites as well! Coming soon is October’s Birchbox. They’ve partnered with Goop, Gwenyth Paltrow’s blog, so hopefully Gwenyth will hook us up with some fancy schmancy awesome products! Also coming this month is Conscious Box (LOVE LOVE LOVE this sub, check it out!), as well as the newest addition to my ridiculous addiction to sampling services, Ipsy (formerly MyGlam). I already know what will be in the bag, but I’m going to keep you all in suspense until I get it! I’m pretty excited about it, looks like some amazing products, a couple of which are full-size! Can’t wait!

Hopefully it won’t be another month before I decide to write another post…

Until next time, peace, love and MAKEUP!! 🙂
