Hey guys! I have been trying so many different products lately, so I thought I would share. From foundations to dry shampoo — these are my newest must-haves!
Some of these products are “old”, and I am just getting around to try them now. But they are still such awesome products that I had to mention them anyway.
I recently had my hair done, which requires a lot of bleaching (Blonde). Because of this my hair becomes quite dry, so I have been trying really hard not to wash my hair every day. I have tried many dry shampoos in the past and rather then helping my hair feel more clean — they just made my hair feel greasy. But this, oh man… Batiste Dry Shampoo in general is amazing, but this product is 2 in 1 and I have been reallllyyyy loving it! I’ve been able to skip a day of washing my hair because of it. A WIN! I also really enjoy the scent, it’s fresh/floral but not too strong. And believe it or not, I found this dry shampoo on a whim at the Dollarama for only $4.00!!! (Retails usually $8.00 +)
I watch a lot of beauty related videos on YouTube, so I tend to buy most of my products because of recommendations from the individuals I watch. This was a recommendation from Alex Garza, she recommended these facial razors after purchasing them off Amazon. I actually ended up finding them at my local Marshalls, and I LOVE THEM! I nair my upper lip as well as my eyebrows, I just prefer to do them myself. But if you have a few hairs that you missed or what have you, this works like a charm. It also doesn’t cause any redness. So if I’m doing my makeup and I notice a few hairs on my upper lips, this takes seconds and the hair is GONE! I will link the ones off Amazon that she recommended below, so you can get your hands on them too!
I honestly can not remember if I have mentioned the Garnier Sheet masks before, but they work so well that it’s worth mentioning again! I absolutely love these, especially the ones specifically for dry skin. They retail for only $3.99 and go on sale often. You really can’t beat it! Super moisturizing, they do not burn your face or anything like that, and provide such a smooth hydrated feel after use.
So I used to use this product many moons ago, and for some reason I had the urge to repurchase it after not using it for a couple years. Maybelline Great Lash Clear gel works so well to set your eyebrows! And it’s a cheap drugstore product; for the price you can’t go wrong. My eyebrows stay in place all day because of this product, what more can you ask?
This was another product that I saw on a YouTube beauty guru’s channel, and she highly recommended it, so I figured why not! It really is a great drug store product. I was using the Urban Decay Naked concealer and I have set that to the side, and have been using this L’oreal True Match everyday! I have the lightest shade W 1-2 ‘fair’, I do find it has a bit of a yellow undertone when applying. But it sits nicely on my foundation and, sets well with a setting powder. Once my entire face makeup is finished it does not have a yellow undertone appearance, so I love it! I also like the sponge applicator too, it makes it easier for application for sure.
Ok, so where has this been all my life? What an amazing affordable lipstick this is. It dries matte almost immediately but is not drying on your lips. I am typically a lip gloss wearer because I like having hydrated lips, but this works so well for me! I went and ran errands for well over an hour yesterday and it was still on my lips when I got back home, this is a must have! I purchased the shade 01 which is called ‘honeymoon’. (linked below)
Last but definitely not least.. my beloved Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. I gravitated away from this for most of the summer because my skin was so hydrated, thanks to the temperature outside! But now that it’s much cooler outside and my skin is a bit more dry, I started using it again. I’m not even mad — because this foundation is AMAZING! It is more of a liquid consistency which is what I prefer when my skin starts to feel a bit more dry, and because of this it doesn’t stick to any of my dry patches whatsoever. This foundation has such a radiant finish, and I am currently using the shade 1W2 Sand.
