I’m taking a quick break from all things home to talk about one of my favorite obsessions – all things beauty! Any of my friends will tell you that I’m always on the hunt for that next “holy grail” product – whether it be a new favorite lipgloss or moisturizer, I’ve always got room for “one more”. But as I’ve gotten older, my beauty philosophy has changed from try as it all, to investing in fewer, better, and better for me products. And I see them as just that, an investment. It just so happens that now is the perfect time to stock up as Sephora is having a 15% EVERYTHING sale for all VIB members. If you haven’t signed up, do it! You earn points which get you free stuff, and you have access to lots of other perks. Below are the items I’m stocking up on – they are all natural, luxurious, cruelty free (this is huge for me!!) and most of all, they work!
“A highly pigmented lip gloss featuring healthy fruit ingredients that are delicious enough to eat.”
This is my go to lipgloss – it is on the stickier side, but it lasts, the color payoff is beautiful, and doesn’t it make sense to put healthy ingredients on your lips?!? I have it is the Cocoa and Rambutan colors.
“A lightweight yet luxuriously rich and buttery face cream for instant and abundant hydration.'”
Don’t let the word “butter” throw you, as it did me at first. This is the most luxurious, lightweight face cream I have ever used. I have combination skin that is extremely sensitive, and this is calming, soothing, and super hydrating with NO greasy feel whatsoever.
“An award-winning cheek stain for a natural-looking flush in one brush-free application.”
This is a cult favorite and a tried and true product from Tarte’s line. It makes getting that perfect dewy flush easy, and it doubles as a lip stain! It’s a must for traveling and I wear it all the time during the summer. I have it in “exposed” which is the perfect warm nude.
“A unique oil formulation that, when mixed with water, blooms into a silky milk cleanser to remove makeup gently and effectively.”
I was hesitant to try face oil, but I was tired of my nightly routine so I bought this on a whim. It does take some getting used to, but once you get the hang of it, it is amazing. I found that it’s key to make sure your face it wet before applying – if you don’t, it’s very hard to remove. It makes taking off makeup a breeze, and it’s really balanced out my sensitive skin.
” A daily gel-serum that visibly firms, lifts, and plumps skin for a dramatically smoother, tighter, and more hydrated appearance.”
I LOVE using this as a makeup primer and on days when I’m not wearing any, it helps give my skin a smooth and even look. It’s so soothing, smells fresh and absorbs very quickly. It feels sticky at first, but dries down to the perfect finish.
