I was recently asked what are my five essential make up products, the ones i just can't live without! I thought a good way to talk about my favorite beauty products, would be to do a monthly favorites post! What are your guys's favorite beauty products of this past month? Let me know!
My first product I want to talk about is the Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20. That was a mouthful! There are so many reasons why I love this product! First of, the packaging is super cute; it's small enough to fit in any make up bag, without being bulky. It's also TSA friendly, so you can take it with you while traveling, no hassle! Secondly, I think it's just me, but the smell is SO refreshing. It's almost makes your feel healthy. Might be psychological, but it works! It has SPF 20, which is a bonus in the summer time! I am in the shade 60 - Natural Beige. Neutrogena always has a wide variety of shades to choose from, which is perfect for all skin types! I usually apply it with a stipple brush, or a make up sponge.
When it comes to Rimmel London's Natural Bronzer, I know exactly what I'm in for. I have used this product for over 5 years, and gone through so many of these pans. Without fail, this product never disappoints. It's the perfect amount of bronzer and shimmer, without making you look like a disco ball! It comes in 3-4 shades, so depending on your tan preference, you can choose your shade. I am in the shade 027 - Sun Dance. This product gives me the healthy glow all us girls crave for, and it is suitable for all seasons! Plus it's a drugstore purchase, so very affordable!
It wouldn't be summer if there was no blush! Now obviously, getting the healthy natural blush glow is the best, but sometimes your face just needs a little umph! And for that reason, I have been loving the NARS blush in Torrid. It's the perfect blend of peach and pink! And I will continue using this blush through the fall. As you guys know, NARS blushes are very pigmented, so a little goes a long way. Also, it takes forever to hit pan, so you will be getting your money's worth!
I am a loyal Maybelline New York mascara girl! Have been using them since high school! There are just so many pros about this mascara, but to mention a few: the brush bristles are amazing! They really help with separating and thickening your eyelashes, hence, making your lashes look thicker! And who doesn't want thicker lashes? It is waterproof, so no dramatic black streaks down your face! The packaging is cute for the summer time, it doesn't clump like other mascaras! It's a drugstore mascara, so you know it's affordable! All in all, very happy with the Maybelline New York mascara line!
I have usually been an EOS lip balm kinda gal. Mainly because, more often than not, I forget to put any sort of lip product on! I know..its sad haha. Which is why I am so amazed at myself for finding a lip product and actually sticking to it all month! This is the L'Oreal Paris Colour Carasse by Colour Riche in the shade Rose Taffeta. It's almost the color of my natural lips, but better! The subtle old rose shade gives off a classy and chic color which is perfect for a natural look or even a fancier look! The packaging is so simple, yet so classy! I think this lipstick is going to be a regular in my make up bag!
