New (To Me) Beauty Favorites

I have such a weakness for makeup and beauty products; the amount of makeup palettes I own is borderline ridiculous. What is it about makeup that just makes you feel better when you’re having a bad day? I kid you not, a new tube of lipstick is basically my adult equivalent of buying a Hello Kitty pencil when I was 5; equally excited about both and can’t wait to try it out. My skin tends to get a bit dry during the winter months so I get a little bit more into beauty products this time of year. I have recently come across a few new-to-me products that I just couldn’t help but share with you all!
Okay, so… I have officially hopped on the Charlotte Tilbury wagon; all of her products that I have tried so far have been completely amazing! I love how natural her eyeshadow palettes are and the fact that when you are applying her eyeshadow it doesn’t flake off and land on your skin. Added bonus, the packaging and colors are just beautiful!

How have I not heard about Shiseido Facial Cotton Pads before? I used to just buy the cotton rounds from the grocery store, and I never realized how scratchy and abrasive those are until I tried Shiseido cotton pads. The feel and you can get like a pack of 100 pads for $12 – better product and better deal, for sure!

This is my new favorite facial cream! You get really great surface coverage out of it and it doesn’t have that greasy quality to it that most face creams have, and I kind of love the fact that there is a special Charlotte Tilbury tap method to go along with this product!

This is the best makeup remover I have ever come across! It just melts makeup away, leaves your face feeling clean and fresh, and it does not leave behind that oily sensation that almost all makeup removers do. Plus it is such a great product at such a great deal; you can get a 16oz bottle off of amazon for $14! I used to pay $40 per bottle for the makeup remover I used to use, and Bioderma is 20 times better than my old makeup remover. 

My hair is such a head ache to wash and dry, it’s thick and curly, and on days when I have to wash my hair it is an 1.5 – 2 process start to finish depending on the humidity. That said I try to get as many days out of my hair as I can. To help do that I usually sleep with my hair in a super lose bun and touch it up in the morning. The Slip Scrunchies are so great to use if you sleep with your hair up at night. They don’t leave line or break your hair, and they are very comfortable to sleep in.

It took me a while to catch onto the whole facial roller thing, but now that I have I think they are completely wonderful! Everyone seriously needs to add facial rolling into their beauty routine. There are different methods for using the roller depending if you want to detox your skin or roll to firm – both ways fell great and it’s so relaxing. 

The Jade Roller basically does the same thing as the Rose Quartz Roller. I’m not a 100% sure what the difference is between the two, but the jade roller feels a little more abrasive than the rose quartz. Both are great, but if I had to choose one I would pick the Rose Quartz Roller. It is nice to have both thought, just for the sake of mixing it up every now and then.

This is the first time in my entire life that I have ever owned a foundation product. I have just always hated how the ones I tried seemed to just feel heavy. A couple weeks ago at Nordstrom there was a makeup artist there doing makeup, so why not get your makeup done when you have nowhere else to go? Anyhow, she used the Giorgio Armani foundation and I fell in love with the product; its sheer so it still looks very natural, feels extremely light, and gives your skin just a polished healthy glow

I love, love, love this product! Try it, you will not regret it – the product’s results speak for itself.

I stumbled across Besame’s website a few years ago and I was completely sold just looking at their packing – their products are just so beautiful. Their lipsticks are my absolute favorite; they have so many beautiful colors to choose from and they will stay on for a long time. I just recently tried the American Beauty Lipstick and it looks wonderful with every single clothing and eyeshadow color I have worn it with so far.

I cannot speak highly enough of this product. It is one of the few things that I use every day. It is so great if you are running and don’t have a lot of time to spend on makeup because it gives your skin a nice flawless, rested glow that really bumps up the other products you are wearing. 

I have always had a hard time finding exfoliators that aren’t too rough on my skin. A couple weeks ago waiting in line at Sephora I grabbed a small travel size of this product just to try and it’s my new favorite exfoliating face wash. The fineness of the sugar is fells really gentle on my skin and it’s so easy to use because all you do is gently rub a little on your face till the sugar has dissolved and then you just rinse it off!
