Spring Beauty

April 04, 2016


Every once in a while I come across beauty products that I absolutely love. From skin care to make up I love trying new things, but when you end up picking up the same products over and over again you know it's time to share. Since it can be a tad intimidating to try out new products, especially when they are practically an investment, I'd thought I would break down some of my current favourites and hope to help you decide if they are right for you.

What: NYX Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Whipped Caviar
Why I love it: The shade of muted plum was exactly what I was looking for. It goes on so smooth and stays on for a hours without drying out the lips. This drug store find is a steal and rivals my MAC lipsticks.

What: NYX Cosmetics Wonder Pencil
Why I love it: Concealer, eye brightener, and universal lip pencil. It's a trifecta of a pencil and the perfect evening clutch essential.

What: Make Up For Ever Pro Sculpting Face Palette
Why I love it: This 4-in-1 seriously does it all; highlights, contours, illuminates and adds a dash of colour. I had been on the hunt for a face palette for a while, and this one stop, lightweight palette sold me right away. I love that it is cream based which means I can apply it using my fingers (aka I didn't need to buy a fancy brush), and that the colour is completely build-able. I purchased #20, for light tones, and am amazed at how well it blends! I may not contour everyday however I have been getting so much use out of the highlighter and shimmer creams!

What: Shu Uemura Wonder Worker 
Why I love it: This hair product is a multi-tasker since you apply on towel dried hair and leave in for either air-drying or blow drying. I don't always want to blow dry my hair so I love that it styles and finishes my hair without the need of a blow dryer.  It leaves my hair so silky and soft, bonus- it smells divine!

What: Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil Shampoo
Why I love it: It's paraben and silicone free and doesn't strip the hair of necessary, natural oils. It leaves my hair super soft and the smells so light and fresh.

Have you tried any of these? I'd love to hear your experience.

  3. Love this round up Gabriella! The MUFE contour palette sounds awesome - I've never tried a cream contour, but like your point about not needing a brush!
