Beauty products I can’t live without…and you shouldn’t!

6 Jul

These products are a must have for any girl who wants to keep herself looking and feeling pretty and polished:

  • Sunscreen: The most important product you will ever need.  Helps fight UV rays which can cause skin damage, wrinkles, and cancer.  Use it! I like Alba Botanica’s Hawaiian collection- smells yummy and is all natural.
  • Coconut oil: (If you don’t already know the MANY benefits of coconut oil, check out my post under PRODUCTS on Coconut oil).  I like to use it especially for moisturizing benefits, and to help keep my lips from chapping.
  • Deep Steep Argan oil sugar scrub: I use this in the shower every single day, and sometimes again because I looove the smell and the smoothness of my skin afterwards.  Apply it all over from shoulders to toes and on legs after shaving for a silky finish. Gets rid of dead skin cells and dirt that can dull your glow and clog pores and makes you feel like a goddess! And it’s all natural of course.
  • Clarisonic Mia 2: I use this on my face every day.  It cleans your face like ten times better than washing by hand and gets rid of makeup/pollutants, and makes your facial products apply and soak in so much better.  It has helped make my pores look amazing, and my skin feel fresh.  Worth every penny.
  • Naked 2 palette by Urban Decay: who hasn’t heard of these by now?  The best palette ever- compliments all skin tones, is super pigmented and long lasting, shades are beautiful, and lasts forever!
  • Urban Decay primer potion: makes eye shadow stay on until you are ready to take it off! Really makes a difference in how the shadow applies, looks soo much better combined. And best of all, Urban Decay products are Cruelty free (including their makeup brushes which are also a-maz-ing!!)
  • They also have the best eyeliner for those of you who like a liner that stays put and glides on: 24/7 liner. My fave: perversion. Blackest black I’ve found.
  • Beauty Blender and Blender Cleanser:  This little miracle sponge blends makeup effortlessly and is contoured to reach in tiny corners and lines on your face. Always always blend your makeup…trust me. Take a drop of cleanser and rinse and squeeze and its fresh and ready to use again.
  • Last but not least, UD Makeup setting spray in All-nighter: literally sprays on and saves you from melt-down, super important especially in the hotter months 😉  It’s gotten a lot of rave reviews from all over for a reason. 

There are many more, but these are my favorites!  What products are a must-have for you?

Marc Jacobs Beauty

13 Aug

Marc Jacobs has created a beauty line and the products are pretty amazing…
Great reviews coming from the Remedy Concealer Pen which is made with a blend of Theine, coconut water, and vitamin extracts that hydrate, nourish, correct, and conceal beautifully! You feel a cooling sensation when applying the concealer, which helps to de-puff swollen eyes and the concealer covers dark circles to give you a fresh eyed look.marc jacobs concealer

The eye palettes are also all the rage, which offer long-lasting true pigmented color and are super pretty:

And not to be forgotten, the Marc Jacobs Magic Marc’er Pen which has a calligraphy pen tip for precise lines and has awesome staying power.  The waterproof formula was developed in Japan to be the shiniest, blackest black liner in existence:

Urban Decay LIPS!

9 Jul

Sorry to all my loyal followers as I have been M.I.A. lately…I have been busy getting ready for a show where I sell a bunch of nail polishes that I hand create, along with setting up my new Eco-friendly Green cleaning business, tending to a sick husband, registering full time at the college here while finishing a degree at another, and, well, just being pregnant!  I promise to post as often as I can!

So, here’s my newest find: Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick

It comes in 22 hydrating, long-lasting, creamy, super pigmented shades: (shown here with coordinating lip liners)

The ozone lip liner shade can be used with any color lipstick, fills in fine lines, and prevents feathering.
The lipsticks are said to last up to 7 hours of wear…not bad! Also UD now gives free returns, so if you try it and don’t like it, you can send it back! Sweet deal!

 

NEW! Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray…out tommorow!

24 Jun

Just when our high-tech makeup setting  sprays were getting a little lonely on the shelf, our product development team  had the brilliant idea to create an antioxidant-rich prep spray. In an exclusive  partnership with Skindinavia, UD launches B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep  Spray. This scientifically advanced formula contains the first stabilized form  of vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. Spritz it  on any time of day to hydrate, prep and soften your skin with vitamins and  antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and wake up your skin, during the  day to refresh your skin (without messing up your makeup), or at night before  your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types, men  included, this energizing formula is great for your skin and it feels amazing.  The more you use it, the better the results.”-UD

Super exciting! I will be purchasing and reviewing…. 🙂

Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray

1 Jun

th (7)

If you don’t already know, I am a huge fan of Urban Decay cosmetics and this includes their New Makeup Setting Sprays- a must have for the Summer!  The sprays come in regular and travel sizes, great for throwing in your makeup bag or purse.  There are three different types: De-Slick, which helps control oil and do away with surface shine…All-nighter, which makes skin look ultra smooth and has a super high-tech formula that literally cools down the temperature of your makeup and helps it last up to 16 hours! (good for all complexions)…and Chill, which has a time- release cooling technology that is good for drier to combination skin and helps make up stay in place for 12 hours!  Totally amazing products that actually work! Thanks Urban Decay!

Products I want! and will get!

Urban-Decay-24-7-Glide-On-Eye-Pencil-Vault

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide on eye pencil Vault!

I have the pencil in the color Perversion (a really dark black) and I absolutely LOVE it! It really does glide onto your eyes and stays put…great for someone like me who cries/has allergies like crazy during pregnancy! I can’t wait to try the rest of the colors, they are super pigmented and beautiful.

Urban Decay Naked Flushed!

This cute combo contains a bronzer, highlighter, and blush that come conveniently packed in a case that can be thrown in any bag!  The reviews on this are super positive, and if it is as pigmented and pretty as they say and as all other UD products are, then I will be one happy girl! Can’t wait!
