My New Favorite Beauty Products

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight

1. MAC Velvet Teddy Lipstick // $17
I'd heard other bloggers mention this lip color before, but I never tried it until recently. I absolutely LOVE it. It's the perfect darker nude shade and it's super creamy and glides on easily. It's not drying at all. I also really like the scent! FYI, the MAC lipsticks come in a mini version if you just want to try it.

2. MAC Prep + Prime Fix + Finishing Mist // $26
I just added this finishing spray to my make up routine and it really does make a difference! I do feel like my foundation stays put longer throughout the day. I apply a few sprays to my entire face after I'm done my make up. You can also use this mist as a primer!

3. Laura Geller Dramalash Mascara // $24
This mascara is amazing!! I love the thick brush and it really does lengthen the lashes well. Because of skin allergies, I have to use only hypoallergenic eye make up and Laura Geller make up is one of the only brands I can wear. It's pricey though, so I alternate with Physicians Formula mascaras (also hypoallergenic).

4. OPI Feel the Chemis-Tree Nail Polish // $10.50
I'm wearing this polish right now in the gel version (discovered it at the nail salon). It's one of the 2017 holiday colors and it's the prettiest shimmery purple. I usually go with burgundy and gray colors throughout the winter, but this is really fun for a change!

5. Tarte Shape Tape Contour Conealer // $27
I recently bought this concealer after reading lots of great reviews. I'm obsessed! I apply it under my eyes and to cover blemishes and dark spots. I blend it in with this make up sponge. I like that this concealer is pretty thick and offers great coverage, but it's NOT drying or cakey.

6. Neutrogena Make Up Removing Cleansing Towelettes // $4.99
I used baby oil to remove my eye make up for years (works REALLY well but is obviously oily), but in the last year I switched to using these towelettes. I use 1 towelette to remove my eye make up and foundation, then I wash my face. I really feel like I get ALL my make up off by using these towelettes! They come in large packs and also travel size packs for overnight trips.

7. Clinique Quickliner for Lips Intense (Intense Cranberry) // $17.50
This lip liner is such a pretty shade of red. I use it under all my red lipsticks now. I had a red Cover Girl lip liner and it smeared so easily. It's definitely worth spending a little extra on high end brands when it comes to lip liner.

8. Glossier Boy Brow // $16
This brow brush is perfect for those days when you're in a rush or just want minimal make up. This brow product is like a mascara for your brows! It fills your brows in and grooms them. I decided to give this a try after a friend recommended it. I really like it, but I'll be honest, I still prefer Anastasia Brow Wiz Pencil. But if you're looking for something quick and easy, give this brush a try. It comes in blond, brown and black.

What are some of your favorite products?? Would love to hear any recommendations!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
