I have been watching a lot of beauty bloggers on YouTube lately which has re-ignited my love for make-up products! I want to share a few of my current must-haves.
The Original BeautyBlender: I have always been wary of spending money on the official beautyblender, buying a few knock-offs here and there instead. But, let me tell you, I am so glad I finally decided to try out the real deal! It is amazing! There is something about the texture of this sponge that sets it apart from other blenders. It helps you get that flawless look quickly and evenly. Being a "use my finger to blend" girl in the past, this product has made me never want to go back. This blender won't leave unwanted hairs in your foundation like most makeup brushes and it doesn't soak up your foundation like a regular sponge. In my opinion, this product is worth the hype!
M.A.C Pro Longwear Concealer: Tons of beauty YouTubers talk about this product on a consistent basis, so I decided to try it out for myself. I love the creamy formula and high pigmented coverage this concealer provides! It goes on smooth and blends really well into my skin. One trick that I am loving with this product is getting a shade that is similar to your skin tone and then getting another that is a little lighter and mixing them. This really helps brighten up the under eye area!
Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation: I really like this full coverage foundation! It has a smooth texture and blends really well with my beautyblender. It is not a runny foundation, which I personally like because I feel like it stays in place throughout the day. I also love the packaging of this product! It is not a glass bottle like so many other foundations so if (okay, WHEN) I drop it I don't have to worry about it breaking and sending my foundation all over the room. I am now on my second tube of this stuff and I'm loving it!
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara: This stuff, I love this stuff. I have been using this mascara for quite a while now and whenever I try something new I always come back to it. I love its' larger, fluffier brush applicator that allows me to sweep my lashes to the sky and leaves them looking full and voluminous. (I am personally not a fan of tiny silicone brushes, I feel like they clump my lashes together instead of separating them) Another awesome plus of this mascara is the growth formula within it that you apply to your lashes with each use. Each time you use this you are strengthening your lashes. This is an amazing drug store product that can definitely go head to head with a high end mascara in my opinion.
If you've never watched beauty bloggers, you should! It's awesome to hear their opinions on products, especially if you are considering something new and aren't sure if it's worth the money. A few of my current faves to watch are: KathleenLights, JaclynHill, and KandeeJohnson.
