G O O D M O R N I N G L A D I E S!
OH how I’ve missed you all so very much! I hope this post finds you all well. My work life (and mom life) has definitely been interfering with my blogging life – what’s a girl to do!? In the interim, I’ve had the opportunity to test out some products since my last Beauty Talk and I’m looking forward to sharing them with you. Remember that the products shared are all worth your hard earned dollars and have been tested and have surpassed my expectations.
I had the pleasure of meeting a local Arbonne Rep, Shawna Gibb, this year to test out some of the products from the Arbonne line. I was very curious about the line and the results that I had been hearing. There were two products that stood out above the rest and I have been using them daily/weekly ever since (..and I’m on my second refill!)
CC Cream in shade ‘Light’ $45: I feel as though the online description of this product does not do it justice! They fail to really describe how creamy and smooth this cc cream is. It seriously can be applied effortlessly and this ‘light’ shade is bang on for my skin tone. It is a light coverage but easily buildable to cover the areas you want concealed. It’s great for the Winter months when you skin is super dry or in the Summer when you don’t want to look cakey. All around an excellent product.
ColorLast Hair Serum $36: Not only does this product smell incredible but it makes my hair SO smooth and manageable, all while NOT weighing it down AT ALL. Incredible right!? I know! It also dries my hair before I’m even done my makeup -this cuts my blow dryer time in half. I’m lucky enough to be able to say that I have access to hair products at cost… but when it came to paying full pop for this bad boy, I would do it over and over again – and have.
Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in shade ‘Light-Medium Sand’ $31: I came across this product while researching top rated products on Sephora’s site (this is actually a late night pass time of mine – random I know!) This product came highly recommended and now I see why. It covers dark circles very well. It was a little weird at first because it’s very thick. So be sure to only use the smallest amount possible and apply it with your finger so it warms up and you can blend it in and smooth it out.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner $29: When I first started getting my lashes done I was very concerned about what brand of liner would be ok to use without harming my false lashes. My lash tech ranted and raved about this Stila liner and now I know why – it STAYS ALL DAY! Like when does that EVER happen?! Never! It’s not often that I find a liner (of any kind that is) that doesn’t transfer to the upper part of my eyelid half way through the day – THIS DRIVES ME NUTS! So it’s safe to say that this one definitely does not cause that problem and is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
Tarte Tarteless Tease Palette $25: I’ve been trying to broaden my horizons and use another eye shadow palette other than my go to Jane Iredale one. When it comes to a palette, I want to be able to use ALL of the shades. With my green eyes, I tend to gravitate towards browns and purples. All the shades here work very nicely together. It turns out that this is my besties fave palette too and she has blue eyes, so I guess it’s great for all.
bareMinerals Broad Spectrum Multi-Tasking Face in shade ‘Well Rested’ $23: This is a miracle powder that gives the illusion that you are well rested …. count me in because I definitely AM NOT – lol. I’m so far from that, but that’s a blog post all on it’s own haha. This is my second refill on this product. It’s literally a miracle powder: dark circle here? blemish there? or just overall having a bad day? This will fix you right up! It gives you an overall Photoshop look without being powdery – make sense? It melts into your skin for an appearance of flawlessness. Sound too good to be true? Try it for yourself. Remember… Sephora has a 100% satisfaction guarantee so if you don’t love it – return it. Easy as that!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks products!
