July Favorites

It’s that time again and guess what? I’m on time! There are a few products that I’ve been using daily that I’m really enjoying.

  1. Rodial Contour Brush

rodial conturThis angled brush is perfect for working on your contour – I especially enjoy using it with the Rodial Banana Powder I
mentioned last mont in the favorites post.

This brush is soft, picks up powder easily and blends seamlessly. It’s been my go to brush since I acquired.

 

2. Kérastase Elixer Collection

fondant-elixir-ultime-a-l-huile-sublimatrice-260-410-202This collection has captured my heart. My hair, despite my every-four-weeks coloring and daily hot tools usage. The conditioner is great at moisturizing without weighing down hair.

The same can be said for the spray, which I use lightly on towel dried hair. The Ultime set is for any hair type (even us ladies with thin or fine hair), and it lives up to its word. Weightless.

elixir-ultime-huile-cheveux-fins-260-410-200These products have kept my hair looking so great during the summer’s worst (it’s been tiny bit hot and humid, if you hadn’t heard), so eliminating the frizz my naturally wavy hair has is super important. Carrot Top, I am not. LOL

 

 

 

3. Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Glosshard candy

This inexpensive Wal-Mart find has my lips happy. It’s formula is moisturizing and a little plumping, shiny gloss with a hint of shimmer. The light light color makes it great to swipe on a
nytime of day, but you can also use it as a topper for other lip products like stains, matte lipsticks and so on.

There are several light colors that all work pretty similarly, so feel free to try more than one or just close your eyes and point.

And that’s all I’ve got for July – and look, we’re right on time!

 

 

February Favorites

It’s once again that time of the month for me to share with you the beauty products I’ve been loving on.

  1. Clinique Sweet PotsCandid Cassis Sweet Pot

These little cuties are so great! Unscented, one side has a sugar scrub to use for soft, supple lips, while the other side has a burst of color like the one here in Candid Cassis. You can see the bottom side has the grainy texture, while the top side is creamy lip balm. The whole line is really beautiful and they’re all really light on color, so don’t expect a big color payoff. That’s not what these babies were designed to do. But they fit in a pocket, purse or whatever you carry, so you’ll never be without. At $19.50 a piece, I wouldn’t call them outrageously expensive, but more than a drugstore brand. (They may also have Black Honey, a cult favorite!)

2. Kerastase Elixer Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil
You may be thinking, “Oil, on my hair? No way!”, but hear me out! Heat styling is very damaging to hair. The oils in the Elixer help protect hair and give it that shine that you get from the salon.

It can also be used after dry shampoo to put a little shine back into the ends of hair.

Best part? It is great for fine to normal hair! It even helps increase the size of the hair shaft, giving hair more volume.¬† OK, maybe the best part is the smell; it’s lovely.

3. Aveda Tourmaline Charged Exfoliating Cleanser

I don’t know about you, but I love the feeling of a freshly exfoliated face. It just makes me feel refreshed and my makeup goes on much more easily. However, they say you should only exfoliate 2-3 times a week. Not enough for me! I like an everyday exfoliation and I’ve found it in Aveda’s Tourmaline Charged Exfoliating Cleanser. Tourmaline is gentle enough to use each day, and the formula is moisturizing, so your skin doesn’t overproduce oil (because who wants that?)

Alright, my dears, that’s all I have for February – let me know in the comments below if you’d like to also hear about UNFavorites. If you want it, I’d love to share with you, so let me know if you do.
