New Beauty Favorites




Spring and summer always have a way of bringing a lot of new beauty bits into my life. I've been feeling all about the rosy shades lately! Here's what I've been loving.

The Urban Decay Rehab Makeup Prep Pore Refining Peel felt seriously odd the first time I used it as I'm not one to gravitate towards peeling masks. It applied clear so was a bit difficult to peel back up after it dried, but once it started it did serious wonders to clean out my pores. My skin didn't feel dry or tight after use. A little went a long way too so I'll have this tube around for a while.

I've been a lover of the Je Ne Sais Quoi Lip Treatment for quite a while now so when I found out it now comes in a "Rose" shade I went a little crazy. It has everything the original does, but with a gorgeous darker wash of color. It's still incredibly sheer on the lips, but I just love that it adds a little something more on top of serious hydration.

The elf Contour Brush is another product I've been reaching for lately to help add a bit more definition to the face. It's a bit of a stark line at first application, but the brush does a really good job at blending things out.

I fall in and out of love with lip liners quite regularly, but there's currently a special place in my heart for the Maybelline Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in "125 Magnetic Mauve." It's of course one of those "my lips but better shades," but it seriously helps to beef up the lasting power of any lipstick I put on top of it. And once the lipstick finally does fade away, the liner is still in place adding color to the lips. This range isn't drying, but I do like to put a lip balm on when I start my makeup routine, before I add this to my lips to make things extra hydrating.

The Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Cleansing Oil Stick is a seriously odd product at first usage. It feels like you're almost rubbing a deodorant like product across your face, but it seriously does the trick at taking off makeup. It has a nice, gentle lather and washes away clean. I'm still not 100% on board with the packaging and application process, but I do really love how well this works.

Although we're deep into summer now I still have yet to get that much sun so I've been using makeup to fake like I haven't spent ages indoors. The IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow in "Instant Warm Glow" helps to add more color to my skin without making me look orange or like I'm trying too hard. I use a fluffy brush and blend all the shades together and brush over my entire face. I also like to use select sections for blush, bronzer, and highlighter if I'm feeling fancy. The pigmentation is super buttery and it applies lightly to the skin without being too much.
