Current Beauty and Skincare Favorites
From Left to Right: Rimmel Show Off in Apocalyptic, MAC Maleficent in True Love's Kiss.
I apologize for the no swatches here, I was having difficulty getting a picture of the exact colors of the lip products. You can view the lip gloss swatch, here on my Instagram. I was super impressed with the pigmentation of the Rimmel lip gloss. What you see in the tube, is what you get! I intend to purchase more colors. It also lasted most of the morning! It's a gorgeous hot pink/berry color. Perfect for summer!
I purchased this MAC Maleficent lipstick the day it released. I think this red will look good on most skin tones. It leans more towards the cool reds. Definitely a "Snow White red". It lasted all morning and still had a stain after eating. Highly recommend if you can still get your hands on it!
From Left to Right: Caudalie Anti-wrinkle Protect Fluid SPF 20, Josie Maran Argan Oil Light, Josie Maran Daily Moisturizer SPF 47.
I was in Sephora looking for a new moisturizer when the sales associate recommended me the Caudalie moisturizer. It's new to the market and has been quite popular- only one was left! I absolutely love this moisturizer. It's great for summer because it's lightweight. It does not smell like sunscreen, which I love. It's also not greasy, which I find sometimes with moisturizers with SPF. It left my skin very soft and smooth- a plus for me since I have problems with skin texture. It's AMAZING!
I was watching QVC one morning when I saw the Today's Special Value and instantly had to purchase it. It was too good of a deal to pass up. I got the two Argan oils above along with her lip/cheek gel stick for only $60! Just one of the bottles retail for $98- so I knew I was getting a good deal!
I have been wanting to try her Argan Oil Light for a while because I heard it's great to use in the morning time. Which is very true! It's super light- and does not leave a greasy look behind. You just need a tiny drop for the whole face so it will last a long time! You can also use this in your hair, on your body, and foundation if you like.
Her SPF moisturizer is new to her line. It is quite thick, so don't use too much. I like to use it, if I am going outside for quite sometime. It also does not smell like SPF, which is super nice. You can also use this on the body, which I haven't tried yet. It's a very moisturizing moisturizer and does a great job at repelling the UV rays.
I really like using body sprays in the summer time because they are very light. Also, it's not over powering like some winter time fragrances. I just love these two new body mists from the summer line at Bath and Body Works. The Moroccan Orchid smells like you are in a garden by the sea if that makes sense. French lavender honey smells just like it sounds. The lavender is more apparent than the honey, but the two together smell very feminine.
Victoria's Secret make my most favorite perfumes. I probably have a dozen of them. I always love when they come out with a new Bombshell fragrance. Their bombshell fragrances are very sexy but also feminine at the same time. This one smells like a summer garden, so very floral. Perfect fragrance for summer time! I just adore this bottle- just how cute is the bottle?! I probably have spritzed this on at least a few times a week- just love it!
So, there you have it, my current beauty and skin care favorites! What are your current favorites?
