May Beauty Favorites
Hi Guys! Sorry for the delay in posts – this past week was super hectic and I had an unusual amount of activities going on! I cannot believe that it is already June!! I purchased quite a few beauty products in May that I have been just absolutely loving, so I think I will make monthly posts on my favorite beauty products of each month, whether it be luxury or drugstore brands. This month is all luxury, so I hope you find my top picks useful!
1. Tarte Eye Lash Curler: I have been in the market for an eye lash curler for a LONGG time, so when I kept hearing about this eye lash curler and how great it is, I decided to give it a whirl. The unique part about this curler, compared to others on the market is that it has a springing action going on that lets you get a really good curl. I will say that the springing action is also a little dangerous because if you press too hard, your eyes can start to water and mess up any eye makeup you have, so when it says squeeze gently, do listen to the instructions! Other than watching out for heavy handedness, I definitely love this eyelash curler and it has made a permanent placement in my beauty collection.
2. Tarte Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Pencil: This is an awesome brow pencil that has a very fine tip, which makes it extremely easy to get a very natural look, which is what I am all about. The best part is that the other end of it has a brush that you can use to blend everything together after applying the pencil. I also love Tarte as a brand because their products are formulated without parabens, mineral oil, and a whole bunch of other junk that a lot of makeup brands have in their products. I never used to use anything on my eyebrows, but this combined with my fave bobbi brown eye brow gel, definitely gets you the “Brows on Fleek” look ;)
3. Nars Audacious Lipstick in “Angela”: This is my latest purchase and I am beyond excited about this new addition to my lipstick collection! It is seriously the most perfect pink, especially if you have a skin tone similar to mine. The formula is super smooth and pigmented, which I love! It doesn’t dry out my lips and the color is really long lasting, especially when combined with a nice lip liner and gloss. It is my new summer go-to for when I want to look extra girly!
4. Lancome Hypnose Drama Masacara: I have saved the best for last! I have been using this line of mascara for years, starting with the original Hypnose formula which I am obsessed with, but the drama version is literally the bomb dot com!! I mentioned this in a previous post, but I had to give it another shout out because the Tarte Curler came with their mascara and it just did not do the trick, so I immediately grabbed this baby. If you have short stubbly lashes, this mascara will literally transform them like no other. It lengthens, thickens, and just creates the most gorgeous lashes EVER. Like the name says it is definitely more dramatic than the original Hypnose, so if you want a more natural look then I would go for that one, but if you want stunning lashes, then the drama is a sure bet!
Hope you guys like this new series and let me know if you have any favorites that you have been loving! xo
