I've been using up so many products, so here's what's new that's been taking up space on my makeup counter. Some of it I bought, some, pr samples, all are FUN! I'm going to be giving the highlights, so if you want more details on something, let me know! ONTO THE NEW MAKEUP:
LORAC Mega Pro 3-- This year's offering has gorgeous white and gold packaging (prone to makeup fignerprints though) with 2 rows of mattes and 2 rows of shimmer. Mostly neutrals with some surprises thrown in, like the burgundy color. Excellent quality.
Hard Candy Metallic Mousse Lip--Get the matte metallic liquid lip trend for an affordable $6. Comes in 7 shades and fun to try. Try Walmart or hardcandy.com
Kokie Cosmetics--This is a new-to-me brand and I've loved trying out a sample of the wide offering of products they have. Bold packaging, beautiful colors, inspired by the runway, but at an affordable price. I really liked the matte lipsticks ($6) and polishes. BONUS: the bottoms of the lips pop off for extra lip balm, like ELF ones. You can find them at select Bed Bath & Beyond, Harmon, and Christmas Tree stores or Kokiecosmetics.com. This is just a little bit of what they have, so please check them out!
Everyone™ 3-in-1 Lotion--3-in1 lotions are light enough for your face and moisturizing enough for your hands and body. They're formulated with a blend of Coconut Oil, Sesame Seed Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Vitamin E, Rice Proteins and aroma therapeutic essential oils. The scents include Apricot + Vanilla, Lavender + Aloe, Mint + Coconut, Cedar + Citrus, Coconut + Lemon and Unscented. I had mint+coconut. It was very minty at first but then faded to a soft coconut and I didn't smell like sunscreen, so it was a nice change.
Available at Whole Foods and www.eoproducts.com, $5.99
NYX Lip Creme Vault--Y'ALL!! This made me crazy excited. Inside of this vault, you get 36 lip creams that aren't full size, but they are NOT half size, but slightly bigger. So while $64.99 is a large price, it's a $110 value. I'm thinking stocking stuffers for girlfriends at Christmas, Secret Santa, building your makeup kit, and more! Online at ULTA now or in stores 10-23
Glov On-the-Go Makeup Remover--Its advanced micro-fiber technology to easily remove makeup, cleanse and tone skin with just water. Small and compact, great for travel too. It works. $12.99 at ULTA
Ashley Tisdale Illuminate Palette in Beach Goddess--12 Eye and Cheek Colors from Ashley's collection for BH Cosmetics. I was really impressed with this palette and will be taking it traveling with me. It's so pretty on too. Online only at ULTA for $14.50. There is another palette and some lip colors as well. Definitely worth checking out.
FACE INC by NAILS INC Sheet Masks--I'm a huge fan of sheet masks, and these are among some of the cutest ones! Each mask addresses a different skin care type (dry, normal, dehydrated, detox, anti-aging). $6 each
Paul & Joe Makeup-Have you heard of or tried this brand? This is a French beauty (and clothing) brand that features retro packaging of some really awesome products. In the upper left-hand corner, you'll see their Gel Foundation (80% water) and their PROTECTING FOUNDATION PRIMER. The primer was a little light for me, but really good, as was the gel foundation. Next up is the powder and then the blush. How cute is the limited edition packaging with Bugs and Tweety? Try beautyhabit.com for this luxury brand.
