IMG_0865 Although I’m two posts in, you’ll see that this blog will have a lot of product reviews and product suggestions to come. I’m always trying new product because I belong to a few monthly beauty box clubs and I also can’t go a week without giving in to impulse beauty purchases. Because this blog is authentic to me, I must highlight products that I actually refill because those products in my opinion, are some of the most important. This morning I collected some of my empty containers from this month that I will replenish this weekend. 1. NYX Pore Filler – The apples of my cheeks are my huge pore zones. Although I use a toner daily and I exfoliate every other day religiously I still suffer from pores that have endured too much wear and tear. Because of this, I need a little help after I moisturize to achieve a smooth look. This pore filler is not only affordable, but works! A little goes such a long way. I use a dime size amount and really work it into my pores when I want a full coverage look. 2. Bare Minerals Buxom Lash Mascara – I’ve used this so much the label came off! This mascara was a gift, and it was love at first stroke. The brush is very prickly and separated my lashes extremely well. I would definitely recommend this mascara if you have naturally short lashes because when pulled from the base of the lash, it moves easily between lashes. 3. La Mer Moisturizing Soft Cream – A few months ago, I splurged and purchased a large jar of La Mer finishing powder and I was given a ton of skincare samples to try. This soft cream sat for a while because I have so many moisturizers that they all started to seem the same. This one was NOT! If felt so good on my skin, I wanted to continue rubbing it in just to feel how soft it made my skin feel. It’s non greasy and gave me a glow in the morning. [NOTE: The price of this stuff is outrageous, so my plan is to purchase something a bit more low key to get more samples of it!] 4. CoverGirl CG Smoothers BB Cream – My staple. I wear this every day. I use it as a day moisturizer because it provides a nice tint and SPF protection. I’ll even put some on to go to the gym! I can say if I am not putting any foundation over it, I do mix it with a slightly darker concealer to achieve my skin color. It’s a bit light, but amazing nonetheless!
