Recent Beauty Finds
Happy Monday! I have a few new beauty products I’m loving, so I wanted to share them with you today. I kind of have a beauty obsession, and it seems the older I get, the worse it gets. Anyone else??
I was in New York in February for market and Glossier had a pop-up right by my friend’s hotel. I don’t know about you, but I’ve been seeing their ads for a while and have heard great things about the products! I was really excited to go check them out in person. Here is what I brought home:
I bought the Balm Dotcom in Cherry, and I’m obsessed. It is the prettiest sheer red tint that looks super natural, feels great on, and smells like cherries! I loved it so much that when I got back home, I ordered some for all the girls at the store. I ordered the Rose (which is a sheer pink tint) and the Birthday Cake (it smells like cake and has a slight glitter to it). I love them all! You can buy just one or order a set of any 3 for $30 (and you get free shipping with an order over $30).
I actually didn’t buy these in NY (since they were big and I didn’t check a bag), but I tried it there and ordered it online as soon as I got home! The Oil Wash smells SO good; it has a very clean, fresh scent (it says Orange Blossom on the website). I put the oil on in the shower after I wash (so I don’t technically use it as my body wash, but for extra moisture and the great scent). The Daily Perfecting Cream is SO awesome. It says it’s the same scent as the oil, but honestly it doesn’t smell the same. What I love is that it’s a pretty thick cream, so it leaves my skin feeling like butter, but it dries quickly and isn’t sticky at all. The BEST part is that it has light reflecting particles and leaves your skin with a slight shimmer. It reminds me of the La Mer body lotion that I’ve been wanting (but can’t bring myself to spend $125 on!). You can buy the set of both the oil and lotion (which is what I did) and save some money.
Some other things I tried at Glossier:
I love a mask and this one felt like velvet!
I ended up buying the balm instead of this, but I’m still thinking about this lipstick! It felt great and I loved the amount of color. My favorite was the color Like, a sheer, natural pink.
OK, enough about Glossier! Here are a couple other new products I’m loving.
I was in need of a new mascara (and honestly wanted to add something to my Ulta cart to get free shipping), so I thought I would try this under $10 mascara. I am LOVING it! My biggest issue is finding a mascara that will stay on and this one doesn’t budge. If you’re looking for a budget mascara, this one is great!
I tried out a few Cover FX products: the Illuminating Primer, Custom Enhancer Drops, and this setting spray (I ordered the Prime & Set Kit so I could try them all). The setting spray is my favorite! It gives the best glow without being glittery at all. The Custom Enhancer Drops are gorgeous (I got the color Moonlight), but they are better for a night out than for daytime.
I have mentioned this before, but with the weather warming up I think it’s worth mentioning again. Every time I wear this perfume, people comment on it! It is the perfect scent for summer and to me it’s not ‘beachy’ smelling, but has a fresh, slightly floral scent.
That’s all I have for now…thanks for reading!
