Sometimes, you just need a pick me up and it could come in the form of a new gloss or lipstick, a new fragrance, or something that makes you excited because it changes things up a little and makes life a little more fun. That’s exactly how I’m feeling about my new makeup brushes, my new Clarins fragrance, my new lip color from Target and my new mascara! Seriously ladies, it’s the little things!
I’m feeling a little bit like Oprah here; sharing all my new favorites. But unfortunately, you can’t look under your chair to find these and there’s no green elves prancing around with packages. You might just have go to go explore the beauty aisle or the Amazon Beauty Department, for that matter! These things have made my routine more fun lately and number two on this list is definitely my favorite!
My New Favorite Beauty Products
- Emax Design 11 Piece Bamboo Makeup Brush Set: My new favorite makeup brushes were so desperately needed. I was asking friends, scouring Amazon and looking in stores. I finally decided to try some new bamboo makeup brushes that I found on Amazon ON SALE! I chose EmaxDesigns after reading the rave reviews. I love how soft they are, the variety you get and the soft orange bag they come in! This makeup brush set is a must have if you are looking for good brushes that will last and won’t cost you an arm and a leg! They are so soft! AMAZON $12.99
- Clarins Eau des Jardins Natural Spray: When I was on my home from Ireland, I treated myself to a new fragrance at Duty Free because I had some leftover Euros. I was getting sick of the same old, same old so I was walking around aimlessly sniffing and spraying. I like scents that are light and gentle. I fell in love with Clarins Eau des Jardins before the woman at the counter even came over to tell me that it was lovely and super popular at the moment. OBSESSED, ladies. I love it. It’s light, fruity and gentle with a hint of citrus. It’s super clean and refreshing and puts me in a good mood each morning. I reapply in the afternoon because it’s that light. It’s definitely my favorite perfume at the moment. You should give it a try. AMAZON $54.99
- NYX Butter Lipstick: I love trying new glosses and lipsticks. I had never purchased anything from NYX before either. I ended up with NYX Butter Lipstick in POPS (BLS17). I’m totally loving it. I feel like I use it more like a chapstick because it’s so smooth! I love the subtle color, but more importantly, I love the hydration! I’d definitely recommend trying out NYX Butter Lipsticks! OBSESSED! AMAZON $7.44
- Benefit Roller Lash Mascara: I have the shortest, straightest eyelashes in America. I’ve tried Younique’s 3D Fiber Lashes and LOVED them, but I don’t always have the time or the energy to take the extra time. I received Benefit Roller Lash Mascara in the mail as a Klout perk and I’m not sure I’ll ever go back to cheap mascara. I swear, this is the best mascara I’ve ever tried! Yes, Benefit Roller Lash is a bit expensive, but I see amazing results. I love the brush. I find it’s shape makes it so easy to apply and I never make a mess anymore! I really love how this mascara lifts my lashes and gives them a definite curl and extension. It’s all in the amazing brush. Spend a little extra, ladies. I feel like Benefit mascara create a fake lash effect without having to deal with fake lashes! AMAZON $29.99
