Beauty Products I've Been Loving
I haven't been very adventurous in the ol' makeup department lately. Running out of my favorite lipstick has put me on the hunt for a replacement, which has gotten me back on the makeup train. Unfortunately, my very favorite lipstick was purchased so long ago, I haven't been able to find it anywhere. That won't stop my quest, though! Here are some other beauty items I've found along the way, and have been loving recently:
I was loving my Makeup Forever mascara, but it seems like every time I run out of mascara (which isn't that often), I'm ready to try something different. This BadGal Lash is a pretty decent formula, but the brush that comes with it is killer! It's larger than any other mascara wand I've used before and it makes my lashes crazy full with just a couple of sweeps!
I purchased this stuff at Target the last time I was there, and it's been really good to my hair so far! I was finding that a lot of other oils were making my hair feel grimy, but this stuff really does feel weightless. Plus, any product I can get at Target instead of battling the mall crowds is ace in my book!
These cute little eyebrow razors are called Tinkles. I actually found these through another blogger's review (I wish I could remember who!) and they are great for a multitude of things like shaping and cleaning up eyebrows and eliminating any peach fuzz that may be hanging around. Plus, they are pretty darling.
You already saw this photo above, but I've recently started using waterproof eyeliner and it has been a game-changer. My eyeliner never really smeared too badly, but when you're working with a cateye, any smears are unwelcome. This is just a Maybelline kind I picked up at Target, so I would imagine there are even better waterproof liners out there.
Also, I'm not really a lipgloss gal, but on a whim I ordered this gloss and I absolutely love it. It still has a lipgloss texture, but it isn't slimy like a lot of the glosses I've tried. Plus, the color in this one is great. My lips look cherry Kool-Aid stained, which is a more subtle alternative when I'm not feeling the full-blown red lipstick vibes.
I've also signed back up with BirchBox, which is helping me find new products again. I took a break for a while, but when I don't have those samples rolling in, I don't really discover new products. If you're interested here's a code to sign up.
Are there any beauty products you've been loving lately? I'd REALLY love to hear recommendations on budget friendly waterproof eyeliners. Or, if you've found the perfect red lipstick that isn't on the pink-y side, I'd be especially interested in that as well! xo.
