It has been ages since my last favorites post. I took a little blogging break over the holidays and then again trying to dig out of the winter we have had here in New England. Even though I haven't posted much, I've still been busy trying new things (and instagramming them) so I have a bunch of products that I have been really loving lately.
Bare Face Cleansing Oil, Julep - I really like using a cleansing oil to remove my make-up before washing my face. I have used many different brands, however Julep is my favorite. It takes everything off without leaving a residue.
Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream - This has been a savior to me all winter long. Its a all purpose cream that I have been using on my cuticles, dry spots and even as an eye cream. It was also the only product that healed my severely dry lips a few months back. My lips were so dry, painful and cracked and nothing I used helped until discovering this likttle magical jar.
Lotus Youth Preserve Eye Cream, Fresh - My under eyes had been a little dry and my concealer just wasn't sitting well and this really changed that. This absorbs so well into my skin and smells just like cucumbers.
Effaclar Duo Dual Action Acne Treatment, La Roche-Posay - I need to use a benzoyl peroxide treatment to keep my skin clear. I like this because it contains 5.5% benzoyl peroxide yet feels really nice on the skin and doesn't dry me out.
Lait-Creme Concentre, Embryolisse - This moisturizer works so well on my skin. It is a little thicker than other moisturizers that I have used, but it absorbs well into my skin and doesn't clog my pores. It has also healed any dry spots that I had over the winter.
VINYLUX Top Coat, CND Cosmetics - I haven't been getting the VINYLUX Weekly Manicures but when my manicurist started using the VINYLUX topcoat on my regular nail polish my manicure stayed for almost a full week with no chips. I started using it at home as my goto topcoat as it really seals my color in.
Rose De Chloe Eau de Toilette Spray, Chloe - I have been obsessed with all things rose lately. I really wanted a rose scent perfume and ended up ordering this from Sephora.com without even smelling it. Its very fresh and light and smells so beautiful.
Invisiblur Perfecting Shield, Murad* - I received this as a PR sample from Murad and have been using it every day. I love that it treats, primes and provide SPF 30 all in one.
Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, Hourglass - I had been a little hesitant about Ambient lighting powders because I thought they were a little too shimmery at first. I have been using Dim Light as my setting powder and love the finish. Everything just looks air brushed.
Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipcolor in Mesmerizing Magenta, Maybelline - I am obsessed with matte lip colors lately and this is the perfect matte magenta. Its bright and vibrant but not too much for day time.
MAQUICOMPLET Complete Coverage Concealer, Lancome - This has become my new favorite concealer. Its so creamy and gives amazing coverage.
Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Living Proof* - I received this from the brand and reviewed it last month. I love that it gives me 5 products in one and helps my hair style last through my next shampoo.
Lip Color Shine in Bare, Tom Ford - This color is just so easy. I haven't taken it out of my purse since buying it. Its one of those colors that you can just apply with no fuss and just a little color to your lips. Its the quintessential "my lips but better" color.
