I love trying new products! One of my favorite things about having a blog is that it gives me an opportunity to share my findings with y’all. There are two things that make me more likely to buy a product – organic buzz on reviews written by bloggers and actually being able to sample a product before purchasing.
If you share my sampling obsession, you need to give PLAY! by Sephora a try! For $10 a month, you receive five deluxe samples + a bonus, packaged in a cute little bag. (So perfect for organizing goodies under your cabinet, traveling with jewelry, etc.)
Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Mascara ($26) • This mascara is incredible. It gives me flashbacks to the summer I had eyelash extensions. If you’re looking for a mascara to separate and lengthen your lashes, this is it! I don’t wear it every day, but I love it for special occasions when I really want to up the glam factor or on days where I wear minimal makeup but want to look polished.
Briogeo Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray ($20) • This was not a great product for me. I have oily hair, so I intentionally avoided getting this anywhere near my roots, and somehow it still made my entire head an oil slick.
Bare Minerals GEN NUDE Matte Liquid Lipcolor in ‘Swag’ ($19) • The name for this shade is cringeworthy, but the product is not. It’s hard to find a good matte lipcolor that isn’t drying, but this one passes the test. I love to wear this to events because it’s long lasting.
Touch in Sol Eye Shadow Duo in ‘Talia’ ($25) • This is another one of my favorites for special occasions! The product has both a glitter primer and a fine, loose glitter that can be applied on top of the stickier primer. This was one of my favorites during the holiday season, and I plan to pull it out again when spring rolls around.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cleanser ($28) • I love this cleanser so much that I purchased it! Its milky and gentle on my sensitive skin, and my skin made noticeable improvements when I started using this.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream ($48) • I started using this moisturizer when my oily skin started getting dry patches, and it cleared that right up. I will probably transition over to a lighter gel product for spring, as feel like the heaviness of this product is better suited for fall and winter.
I want to hear from you – what should I try next?! What have you been using that you love?
