Let’s break this down
REFY Tinted Eyebrow Gel: This is unlike anything Ive ever tired. It’s not going to give you the laminated look (or even a really strong hold), but it coats your brows and makes them look more full and shaped. I keep reaching for it and I love how it makes my brows look.
iNNBEAUTY PROJECT Glaze Lip Oil: If you like the Dior lip oil, this is better. I wear this when I’m wearing THIS Always On Lipsticks or Form Factor Liner for plump, soft lips. The formula on this is hydrating and not sticky.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite™ FaceWare Pro: This has mixed reviews, but I did a ton of research before buying (it’s not cheap) and even consulted with two estheticians. There are so many face lights on the market and a few are only “med spa approved”. Meaning, they use the same light, strength etc.
This exact face mask was one of the top choices they recommended. I bought mine for Christmas and I used it every single night for 2 months straight (I think I missed 2 nights). Now I use 3-4x a week. I noticed my texture and acne significantly decreased around month 2. I use the blue light mode which helps with bacteria production. I can’t really say that I notice a difference with fine lines, but I don’t use the red light. I have always struggled with acne and this helps. But, you have to be diligent about using it almost every day.
Oribe Serene Scalp Dry Shampoo Powder: I just got my hair done on Wednesday and my hair dresser said this is the best dry shampoo she’s ever tried. I tried it and I’m impressed after the first use. It’s also scalp care too so it feels soothing. I use at night, and brush out in the morning.
GXVE BY GWEN STEFANI Eye See in Color Clean Multidimensional Eyeshadow Palette: I’m really into the ease of a one and done palette. This one does it all for me. The shade Danger Zone is neutral enough for everyday but if I want something a little more dramatic, I can blend in the darker shades.
NUDESTIX Tinted Blur Contour Sculpting Stick: If you follow me on stories, this needs no introduction. I use this in shade Neutral Medium and it’s my favorite contour stick I’ve yet to try. It’s cool-toned and blends easily with this brush.
COLOR WOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray Anti-Frizz Treatment: I didn’t really believe the hype on this until I tried it myself. It works! It doesn’t make my hair flat or oily either. I use once a month, for frizz free hair.
La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation SPF 20: This falls into my top foundations of all time. I don’t wear foundation much these days, but when I have a special occasion or event, this is what I reach for. It’s very similar to Armani Luminous Silk, but better.
Rare Beauty Positive Light Silky Touch Highlighter: I wear the shade Enlighten. A little goes a long way. I wear down the bridge of my nose, cupids bow, and as eyeshadow.
NUDESTIX Nudies Matte Cream Blush: I have this in several shades, but my two favorites include Sunkissed Pink and Bare Back.
Peace Out Salicylic Acid Acne Healing Dots: I repurchase these every sale, they work so well. They significantly reduce swelling if I have a blemish. I don’t travel without these!
Oribe Aprés Beach Wave and Shine Spray: Think of this as an upgraded version of the Texture Spray. This gives a subtle shine but a nice hold for loose waves or curls.
Rare Beauty Always An Optimist 4-in-1 Prime & Set Mist: I am no stranger to a face mist, and this from Rare Beauty is a top choice for me. When you find the perfect setting mist, I promise you, it can truly change your makeup routine. This one will soften and diffuse the look of makeup, and give a healthy, dewy glow. The pump provides a fine mist and even application.
Dior Backstage Concealer: Everything I want to be covered is covered with this. I notice my skin looks glowier, which is a nod to the radiant aspect of the formula. The concealer held up all day and didn’t crease under my eyes. I have this is the lightest shade and a little goes a long way.
