Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! My family and I sure did. The hubs and I went to the Dave Crowder Band Concert last night and it was amazing! Seriously if you ever have the opportunity to go see them, do it! We were blown away by their talent, just unreal!
So today kicked off a crazyyyy week for me. Just thinking abut all I have to accomplish this week has given me a little anxiety because I am not sure how I will fi tit all in, but one amazing super power women have is multi tasking so I am sure I will figure it out. Or go into survival mode. Either one!
Today I wanted to talk a little about some of my favorite beauty products that I grab when I am at Ulta Beauty. I love to try new items, however when I find something I've like I tend to stick with it. So I want to share a few new favorites and a few old. Before I do that if you are a NYC gal you are in luck because Ulta Beauty is having a GRAND OPENING in Manhattan at 86th and 3rd this coming Friday 11/10 and runs through Sunday. The first 100 guests in line EACH DAY receive a Beauty Treat valued at $5-$100 AND 10% off a first salon or facial appointment! Doors open at 9am so the sooner you can be there the better!
So lets talk eyes! I recently tried this new Lancome eyeliner and I am hooked. It has such an easy blend when applying and dries super fast. It lasts all day and does not smudge if I accidentally rub my eyes. I also tried this mascara for the first time, Benefits "They're real". I liked using this mascara for length in conjunction with an old time favorite mascara of mine. A few months ago I tried the Too Faced brand mascara, "Better than Sex" and I think it is amazing for volume. I like to apply the volume mascara first and then the lengthening mascara. Still with me? :) I like to mix and match products so you may see that a bit.
Lets talk face. I received this advanced night repair serum a few weeks ago and I was so excited to try it out. I apply it after cleansing my skin and prior to moisturizing it. It helps prevent signs of aging and if you go to Ulta Beauty's website the reviews are very high. Im talking 5 stars high. This serum is on the pricier end point but I believe it is important to invest in your skin and take care of it now, so you don't have to pay extra on procedures when we are older. For foundation I love Urban Decays Naked Foundation and Taste brands blonder and blush.
It was not until recently that I started to really love lipstick. I was a lip gloss gal for so many years but lipsticks can dress up any outfit and make a bold statement. I feel as if I need to make up for lost time. Buxom is definitely my number one for gloss hands down. Super shiny and has a peppermint smell to it. I also am a huge fan of the Urban Decay lipsticks. They glide on so smoothly and the pigment last for hours. Urban Decay is one of my top favorite makeup lines, so I highly recommend any of their products.
Honestly, there are so many goodies I could sit here all day and share them. These are just a few of my top favorites. You can click on the links below that will take you to all the products I am currently using and loving.
