I’m sharing some of my favorite beauty products in a new video on YouTube! These are products I reach for constantly, not just ones from this past month. Check out the video or you can read my thoughts about them below:
When I was working for Ruche, one of the marketing girls introduced this top coat into my life. I think I will be forever indebted to her because it’s seriously the best top coat. The Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat goes on very easily, dries quickly, and leaves my nails looking sparkly and shiny. So sparkly and shiny, in fact, that friends think I’ve just gotten a gel manicure. Gel manicures are nice, but I get tired of the color after a few days, so having a solid top coat that makes your nails look professionally done is ideal! Also, have you ever put on a nail polish color, gone to bed, and woken up in the morning with sheet creases? It happens to the best of us! If you put this top coat on though you’ll actually hide the creases! Long story short, this top coat is amazing and I highly recommend it!
I’m such a Lancome girl, all thanks to my mom! I’ve been using their Dual Matte Finishfor years! In the gift-with-purchase bags at the department stores I’ve always gotten a mini tube of the High Definition Mascara, so I’m no stranger to it. It’s a great mascara, but when you use it after the CILS Booster XL primer, magic happens! I’m totally a fan of lash primers now because it makes an obvious difference. My lashes looks a lot thicker and longer after using these two products.
Arcona makes some awesome products and I love their whole approach to skincare. I went to an event with them last year and learned so much! For one, I used to think exfoliating was something to do at night. They talked, however, about how you put serums and moisturizers on at night that help penetrate into your skin to bring up some of the dead skin cells, so, in the morning you need to exfoliate. This Cranberry Gommage exfoliator helps remove that dead skin and also polishes it to make it brighter and clearer. It smells amazing, too, and is specially formulated for people who have acne prone skin.
This Shimmer.Shine Spray from Kevin Murphy is so fun! In my video I kept messing up what I was trying to say, but there are little pieces of gold glitter in the bottle so you have to shake it up before spraying it onto your hair. The glitter catches the light and helps your hair shimmer and sparkle! It’s also really nourishing because of Vitamins A, C & E so it’s great to apply as a treatment to damp hair before styling.
Have you tried any of these products? Let me know if you have a favorite!
