For skin care, I use Philosophy products. I love their moisturizing cream called "Hope in a Jar" after only one use, I could tell a difference in my skin, from that point on, I was hooked. Like right now I am out of this and I can tell a huge difference. I started using a clinque moisturizer that I have and my skin is already breaking out and it's just not the same! I also use Philosophy's facial cleanser called, " Purity made Simple". This is a great gentle cleanser that literally melts away makeup, dirt, etc and it is great for sensitive skin. I have used many more skin care products from Philosophy but these are just a couple of my favorites. They also have great fragrances, "Amazing Grace", and their Shower Gels are the BEST in my opinion!
"hope in a jar is a world-famous, daily facial moisturizer originally created for the medical market to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, skin discoloration, rough texture and dehydration. hope in a jar is an award-winning facial skin care cream loaded with antioxidants in a unique soufflé texture. it hydrates the skin to reduce dryness as it gently exfoliates to leave skin smoother, healthier and more radiant."
Okay first of all the ONLY makeup I use is Bare Escentuals (Bare Minerals). I have been using this for at least six years now and I will never use anything else, especially for foundation. I can't even imagine using a liquid foundation now. It is so healthy for your skin with no chemicals etc.. and the coverage is awesome! I have both of my sisters using it now and at least three girls at work! I work in surgery so even with wearing a mask all day, the makeup looks great and stays on all day! I also use their eye shadows, blushes and all over face radiance's. The all over face radiance colors are awesome, they make your face glow. This is something that I apply after I have all of my makeup on! Another great thing about this product is it LASTS FOREVER. Seriously I have eye shadows from five years ago! Philosophy also has a great mineral makeup that I also use, It is called the Supernatural, it is a great foundation!
Okay, I am always on the look out for a great eyeliner. Right now my favorite is the 24 7 eyeliner by Urban Decay. It does not smudge and it really does stay on all day!! Bare minerals just came out with a stick eyeliner so I can not wait to use it. My sister already has it and she loves it!!
Glide on color that stays put for the duration of your non-stop, on-the-go day! These cushiony, creamy eye pencils deliver powerful, vibrant color that slides on smooth and stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries to a long-lasting finish that won't budge. Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect. Truly inspired, these pencils go all day and all night. (they really do!)
moving on to mascaras.....
I swear I have found the Holy Grail of Mascaras. I have tried every brand from the most expensive to the cheapest. By far my favorite is "lash stylist" by Maybelline. Yes people my favorite mascara is only six dollars! I love, love, love this Mascara and if you are looking to try something new, please try this one, I promise you, you will love it! I like the brush, it is a little comb that separates and defines your eyelashes... it also thickens and lengthens as well! You can not go wrong with this one!
Oh, and I always have to curl my eyelashes, this is a must for me!!
I like to wear alot of lip glosses, my favorite right now is a long lasting Kiss and Stay lipgloss from Rimmel. The glosses themselves are some of the best long staying glosses I've tried. Unlike everything else, this gloss does not give the super dry feeling that I get with every other long stay gloss. It is just like a regular gloss to apply. Its the same routine, you apply the color first and the shimmer transparent gloss on top of it. It seriously stays on for hours together ! It does not wash off with water. I personally love the color "nude" in this gloss! You can get this at any drugstore!
Okay, well I think I have covered most of my favorite beauty products. Trust me there are alot more..lol, but I do not want to bore you to death, so this will have to do for now. I didn't even get to my favorite hair products, that will have to be another post!! I am so excited to read all of the posts from this week, I am sure that I will find some more amazing beauty products that I just can't live without!!!
Happy Friday Everyone, have a great weekend!
