Amazing eyelash curler!

It’s been a while since I have posted anything, so I figured I’d start with something simple!

I’ve always thought that curling your lashes always was a important touch to finish a look. Finding a good eyelash curler can be a chore. I used to use the Shu Uemura curler until they stopped selling it in the USA.  Some curlers pinch your lids, some don’t curl all of your lashes and some of them just suck! After lots of trial and error, I came across the Shiseido eyelash curler.

This thing is wonderful! The curler grasps all of your lashes from root to tip creating a full lash. The curler fits my almond-shaped eyes perfectly. I have never experienced any pinching, pulling, or tugging from this curler (I am always cautious when using an eyelash curler).  The price point for this eyelash curler is around 19 bucks and totally worth it.

If you are in the market for a new eyelash curler, I HIGHLY recommend this one.

My Favorite Hair Tools

Finding the right hair tools can be expensive and difficult! I’m not an expert at hair so I like products that will do its job without requiring too much expertise! Below, I will list the tools I use the most thus far.

Flat iron: T3 single pass flat iron. This flat iron is amazing. It makes my hair smooth and shiny. It takes seconds to heat up and straightens my hair in half the time ( I have thick hair that goes below my waist). Amazing product.

T3 Featherweight Dryer: Once again, amazing product. Dries my hair in half the time. Also, my hair is smoother when I use this dryer.

T3 SinglePass Whirl curling wand: Let me be very honest and say that I suck at curling hair! This wand allows me to get beachy waves without putting in too much effort. This wand heats up quickly and does not require that you leave your hair wrapped around the wand for too long. Make sure you use the glove provided and hold your hair tight around the wand so it doesn’t slide off!

Enzo Milano Curling Iron (25mm Round): This is my first conical curling wand. I’ve had it for over 6 years and it still works great! I use it for loose beachy waves! Def. an oldie but a goodie.

 

I hope this helps! Enjoy!

Quick Tip: Rollerball Perfumes

If you are anything like me, you love perfumes and love to have a variety of them.

Try rollerball perfumes. They are cheaper,great for travel and/or your makeup bag, and allow you to have multiple perfumes on rotation. The only negative about rollerball perfumes is not all perfumes comes in a rollerball, although most do. Hope this helps!

Review: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Finding a good concealer can be difficult. I have to admit, I used to hate wearing concealer. I thought it looked weird or never blended in with the rest of my makeup until…….. I found Nars Radiant creamy concealer!

In order to make this review easy to follow, I’ll list the pros and cons of this product and my overall conclusion and recommendation.

Pros:

Extremely creamy and buttery smooth.

Blends with the rest of your makeup like a dream.

Makes a great undereye and face concealer depending on the undertone of the color you choose.

Packaging is sleek, easy to travel with and/or to put in your makeup bag.

If used underneath the eyes, this product doesn’t settle into fine lines and wrinkles (at least it doesn’t happen to me).

Covers very well and is buildable.

Looks natural but totally packs a punch. The concealer makes you look bright-eyed and awake.

Blends well using your fingers and/or makeup brush.

Stays in place all day.

Cons:

The color range is good but some people MIGHT have to mix colors to get their perfect shade. I do this to get the perfect concealer shade for my face.

Some people may not like the price. I purchased my concealer at Sephora and paid $28. I think the product is totally worth it!

Overall, I recommend this product 110%. I think it’s totally worth trying.

Quick Tip: Clean Cell Phone

Can you imagine all the places your phone has been? Counters, floors, etc.  To avoid transferring bacteria/germs/dirt from your phone to your face, hands, etc, wipe your phone down!

I use a wet wipe and wipe the screen and case of the phone. I don’t and wouldnt suggest using anything too liquidy, you don’t want to ruin your phone. Try it out, you may even notice less breakouts!

My Most Repurchased Beauty Products:

I don’t know about all of you but I’m (feelin’ 22..jk!) always on the look out for the next best beauty product to try. I just can’t stick with one product. I don’t often repurchase the same products twice, but there are certain products that always stay in the mix. Check out my most repurchased beauty products.

Makeup:

MAC Pro Longwear foundation: This is my favorite foundation to date. I have tried almost every foundation there is at ANY store and nothing has looked as good as this foundation.  This foundation does not oxidize on me, keeps me looking fresh, photographs beautifully, and lasts all day! If you have had trouble finding a good foundation, you should def. check this product out.

Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer: I. LOVE. THIS. STUFF. I will NEVER be without it. It makes my makeup last all day and does a hell of a job to make sure my makeup looks fresh. Best thing about it is that is contains SPF and looks great over some moisturizer when you are in a rush! MAGIC IN A BOTTLE!

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof eye liner in Stingray: This eyeliner is super black and stays put ALL night long. It does not run down my face or make me look like I have raccoon eyes.

Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner in Black: This gel eyeliner is smooth as butter. Doesn’t dry up quick and gives off a rich black color.

Benefit They’re Real mascara and Lancome Hypnose mascara: I like my lashes to look dark, thick, long, and voluminous. These two mascara do it all. They look great individually or layered on top of each other.

MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked: Gives a clean and defined eyebrow shape without being overwhelming.  Does not wipe off easily. The only negative is that is does not come with a spooly brush.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder Makeup: Once again, I have tried so many powders over the years and all of the them end up oxidizing or look super funky on me. This powder does neither. It works great on its own to give me a polished look or used as a setting powder over my foundation.

Lacome Bi-Facil  Eye makeup remover: Removes my makeup with ease without leaving my eyes feeling dry.

Skin care:

Lancome Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate: This serum just WORKS.  I like to switch my skin care up but this serum always stays in the mix. My skin looks healthy, soft, and supple when I use this serum. I highly recommend it.

Shisedo Facial Cotton: These are the softest cotton squares I have found to date. They are so gentle on the eyes when I remove my makeup and feel nothing but amazing.

Body:

Nivea Express Hydration Body Lotion: Leaves you feeling hydrated without feeling greasy!

Nails:

Seche Vite Top Coat: Dries super quick and leaves a nice shiny coat on your nails.

Hair:

Its a 10 Miracle Leave in Product: Leaves my hair shiny and smooth. Has tons of good benefits. The packaging is easy for travel too!

Tresemme Thermal Creation Heat Tamer Spray: Easy to find, reasonably priced, and does the job!
