On Repeat // 001
Beauty products are the perfect impulse purchase. They are priced to feel like a splurge that doesn't hurt your bank account too much. They provide an instant pick me up and can make you feel pretty. What more could you ask for from a $30 purchase? Unfortunately, not all beauty products are created equal and most of us have a drawer filled with half used products. Over the years, I've tried hundreds of different products; some good, some bad, and a few exceptional. Above are a few of the rare, exceptional products that have earned themselves a forever spot in my beauty bag.
Dipbrow Pomade' Waterproof Brow Color Application takes a little more effort than your standard brow pencil but the product lasts forever and the finish is flawless.
Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara - When I know I'll be wearing mascara for a long day this is my go to. It doesn't smudge and works like a waterproof without the super stiff feeling that you get from a typical waterproof mascara. It isn't going to give you a big, bold lash but the product is buildable and perfect ever everyday use.
HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Blush - If you are looking for a less shimmery version of Nars' blush, this beauty is the perfect balance. It highlights while providing a touch of color.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner - Anyone who wants a five minute beauty routine needs this effortless eyeliner. Application is easy as can be and the product won't budge until you wash your face at the end of the day.
Chanel Soleil Tan - Don't be put off by the fact that this bronzing product is to be used all over your face, the color is just light enough that it gives your skin just a hint of color to make your skin look awake and healthy.
Luminous Silk Foundation - If you want a foundation that works while making you look like you just have naturally beautiful skin this is the foundation for you. It photographs beautifully, has a buildable coverage, and comes in a ton of different shades.
Nars Velvet Matte Lipstick - Long before Kylie Jenner made matte lipsticks a thing, Nars was putting out a velvet matte lipstick that achieved a long wear without wearing down your lips with an overly dying formulas.
HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer - I'm not one for primers usually, but when I need that extra layer to get me through a long night there is no other primer I'll turn to. Its light weight, good for your skin, and does just what it says it will.
