New Mac Purchases

I went to Mac the other day to find the perfect brown eyeliner, I think i succeeded. Coffee by MAC is a perfect dark cool toned brown. I like to set it with Coconut Grove eyeshadow by Nars. I also picked up a Mac Cleanse Off oil. I rub it into my skin before I was my face with soap, this step must be done with dry hands and a dry face. Then I rinse off my face and the oil becomes a white liquid that melts off all of my makeup! After that I continue with washing my face normally. I love how it removes makeup quickly and easily without wasting Q-tips or cotton puffs.

Nars Purchases!

I bought some cool stuff from Nars the other day. I initially really wanted a smudge brush to make my signature smokey brown liner easier to do, but of course I bought other products as well.

The NARS Hydrating Moisture Cream is by far the most amazing face cream ever. It is perfect for day and night. I use it during the day and it gives my skin the healthiest glow, I also use it at night because it is so moisturizing. It's a little expensive but I think skincare is even more important than makeup. If you don't have good skin makeup can only do so much! Also the cream doesn't break me out.

Dolce Vita blush is my new favorite at the moment. It makes the perfect naturally rose color blush on my cheeks.

Coconut Grove has also become one of my staples. I use this to smoke out my brown liner, to line my upper lash line and to fill in my brows. It's the perfect cool tone super dark brown color.

I bought the Nars Smudge Brush (number 15) and I am obsessed with it, I use it everyday to smoke out my liner, and to fill in my brows.

Having multi tasking products (one brush for liner and brows, one color for liner and brows, one cream for day and night) has helped me get ready in less than 15 mins in the morning. I highly suggest you guys try to find products and brushes that can be used on more than one area of your face! It makes things so much quicker!

Right now I am totally into Clarins. I never really thought of this brand before because it looks a bit offense. Clarins is located right next to my local Nars counter (my all time favorite makeup brand), I decided to give it a try since I have heard their skincare was really good and made with all natural ingridents. I bought the Contour Eye Gel, deodorant and Instant Light Lip Protector. The lady was so sweet and gave me a ton of free gifts with my purchases, love Clarins! I can honestly say I love all of the products I bought and I will be probably be repurchasing all of them.

Contour Eye Gel: This is a lightweight eye cream that sooths and refreshes my eye area. It comes out like a blue gel and it provides moderate moisture. It wears great under makeup and it actually feels like it supports my eye area... it's very strange but I like it! I wouldn't suggest this product for women with very dry skin, but since my skin is super oily this works great for me. You only need the tiniest amount so this will last me a very long time.

Clarins Deodorant: I have been on the search for a deodorant that doesn't contain aluminum and is soothing to my underarm skin. I tried another brand but I had to return it to Sephora because it didn't work and it stung my armpits. This deodorant actually keeps me odor free, doesn't irritate my skin, doesn't stain my clothing and moisturizes my armpits. I will be buying this deodorant from now on unless it stops working for me ( I have heard that can happen with deodorants).

Instant Light Lip Protector: I'm obsessed with this product (along with all of the other Clarins products)! It soothes and moisturizes my lips while making them appear plump. It has a milky pink color that enhances my natural lip color. This over my Dior Lipglow is my all time favorite lip combination. I love "lip treatments" over lipsticks because they keep my lips moist all day long.

New Hair Products

I was getting a bit bored with my hair routine so I decided to try some different products. I've seen the good reviews for these products on Youtube. Here are my personal thoughts:

Biosilk Silk Therapy: I apply this before I blowdry my hair. I only use the smallest amount, less than a dime size for my whole head of hair. I have a ton of hair so this product will last a very long time for me and everyone who has thin to normal hair! It definitely softens the ends of my hair which can get dry if they are not conditioned well. I don't have many split ends but I definitely see that it protects and softens my ends. Warning if you use to much your hair will be greasy and stringy so make sure to only use a few drops.

Redken Wax Blast: This is by far the best product I bought. This stuff is AMAZING. It will give you movie star volume with just 5 spritzes. I use it after I have styled my hair to give va va voom volume. I spray it in and scrunch up my hair and fluff it out. I really like this product and I will definitely be repurchasing.

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo: I've never tried a dry shampoo before, my mother always told me it was for old ladies. I really like dry shampoo now though! This shampoo smells like lemon sherbert, its good enough to eat! I apply this to the roots of my hair about 2 days after I wash it. I wash my hair every 3 to 4 days so this helps it stay more fresh looking until the 3rd or 4th day.

I bought a Badger lip balm, Supergoop sunblock spf 30, Essie nail polish in Steel-ing the Scene, Lavanila deodorant and a Laura Mercier Caviar eyeliner in Chestnut.
