It's 2 0 1 6 ! And that means its time to ring in the New Year with a few fantastically fresh beauty products. On my most recent trip to Sephora (across the wild Montana tundra), I uncovered some gems that I couldn't wait to share with all my loyal gg-ers!
I absolutely love trying new things, especially when it comes to beauty. Makeup gives us the perfect excuse to change up our look and experiment until we find products that suit us best. Colors, brands, shades, brushes - you name it. Today's post features three very worth while spends that you may find working their way into your everyday routine. One of which is literally life changing. I know I know. Sooooo dramatic.
But for real, when you find that wonderful combination of function and fabulous you'll risk sounding a little uppity too.
E Y E S: Sephora Liquid Eye Liner (Waterproof/Black)
I am typically a Stila girl when it comes to lining my eyes but decided to save some money this trip and went for Sephora's version. The brush is ultra long and fine, giving you max flexibility. The waterproof formula seems to stay all day and only costs $12! I'm excited to play with this product more.
L I P S: KAT VON D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in 'Melancholia'
On my last journey to Sephora I discovered Kat Von D's lipstick in 'LOLITA' and was instantly in love. I figured it was time to try some other lip products in her line and see if my experience would be the same. I landed on this gorgeous pastel pink 'Melancholia' in the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick collection. It's matte texture is modern, covers flawlessly, and is so easy to apply. Maybe a tad bright for my squinting, but will be perfect for Spring time (especially Valentine's day)!
F A C E: Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup Setting Spray
I have always been a bit hesitant to spend money on things like professional cleaners, sprays, primer, pore prep, etc. (I know, I am a cheap monster). During my drug store days I just didn't see the need or value in these kinds of product, I sort of figured they were a gimmick. In recent months however, I have done my research and after many a fantastic review, I figured it was time to see for myself. My skin is naturally super oily and I dread the 'mid day melt' that sets in around 3 pm everyday. I am here to tell you I am never doing my makeup again without applying Urban Decay's De-Slick after. It works SO well. The scent is not overpowering, and it does not leave your skin feeling dry or sticky. It also looks entirely natural - not overly matte. I noticed a significant decrease in the overall oiliness of my skin at the end of the day, and didn't feel the need to apply powder once.
