Ilia recently launched (literally last week) a new line of eye products for the fall and WOW, the brand has raised the bar for clean beauty. I have forever been searching for a clean liquid liner to make a sharp wing that stays, and ladies and gentleman, I present to you the clean line liquid liner. This product truly shocked me. The pigment and staying power is insane. Plus, the felt tip makes it so easy to achieve a sharp wing.
I am forever obsessed with this versatile liquid highlighter. It can be mixed into moisturizer, foundation, cc cream, or dabbed on the high-points of the face to achieve the ultimate natural glow. But don’t be fooled, this product packs a serious punch and will be sure to make you shine.
This product is one of my favorite discoveries from this year. The color hazes from Ilia are like a clean and dewier version of the infamous Glossier Cloud Paints. The metal tip applicator makes it so easy to apply on lips and cheeks for a monochromatic look for when you are on the go or just want a quick look. My current favorite is Before Today, a mid-tone mauve pink.
Natasha Denona palettes are probably one of the most hyped up makeup products of all time. A couple months ago, I decided to invest in this Sunrise Palette. Even though it looks bright, the shades are so wearable when you apply with a light hand. The right side of the palette is perfect for daytime at the office, and you can easily amp up your look by incorporating some of the stunning berry shades on the left side. This palette is slightly smaller than her standard ones, but also half the price. If you are getting sick of your nude palettes and want to spice it up a bit, this is the palette to pick up. Buttery, soft, and metallic. All the shades in here are so unique and would be the perfect addition to anyone’s collection.
These duo’s have easily become a favorite of mine over this past year. There is no need to feel intiminated by these cream formulas because they are virtually fool-proof. All you need is your finger tips to tap and blend onto your skin. They truly look like skin, which is the best part. (I love 8th Muse, a cool-toned pink, and Tropic Equinox, a peachy/coral shade)
If you follow me at all, you know this is my ride or die mascara. It is super black, doesn’t flake, smudge, or transfer and even lasts throughout sweaty workouts. I promise it won’t let you down.
Remember when I mentioned how Ilia recently dropped a BOMB fall collection? Well, the palettes were definitely the stars of the show for me. Particularly, this Warm Nudes 6-pan beauty. It is the perfect travel palette, with all the shades you need for day or night. The formulas are seriously impressive- SO pigmented and rival traditional brands. This hasn’t left my side in weeks. Definitely a rising star.
I have been using this product consistently for YEARS. I am so obsessed that I even have my mom and HER FRIENDS on the LM caviar eye stick bandwagon. They are so so SO easy to use and stay all day long. No creasing. They range from mattes to ultra metallics, so there is a shade for literally everyone. (Copper is my current favorite, a warm metallic penny bronze shade!)
You know you love a product when you have a summer AND winter shade, right? Well, this concealer is that product for me. It is light-weight, non-drying and actually covers up the fact that I don’t get enough sleep. I also love that I can use this under my eyes and on my face, something that all concealers cannot do. Check it out, I know you’ll love it!
THIS foundation stick is a normal-dry skin gal’s DREAM. It literally feels cooling when you swipe it on your skin and you can use any tool to blend it out. I love using my fingers and finishing with a damp beauty sponge for the ultimate flawless coverage. It is a true medium coverage, yet looks so natural and healthy. I also have this in several shades because I love it that much!
This thickening shampoo is the real deal. I have fine, straight hair, and am always looking for volumizing products that will give me body, without making my hair feel cakey or dry. This shampoo gives me the body, without drying my hair out or weighing it down. I love this.
This product has literally been my BFF this past east coast summer. The humidity has been no joke. I spray this on to my damp hair before heat styling, or on my dry hair before running out the door. This product keeps me frizz-free and my hair always looks shiny and smooth!
This leave-in and I go WAY back. I think I’m on my third bottle… This is truly the perfect leave-in spray- it detangles, smoothes, hydrates, and protects from heat damage. Bonus, it smells divine and makes my hair so soft.
I began using this hair oil in July and I am SO impressed. Playa is a new clean beauty brand at Sephora, and I am continually impressed by the quality of their products. I love applying this on my damp hair ends before I blow-dry for the ultimate sleek look. It smoothes my stands and makes my hair look so shiny. A couple drops go a long way!
Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum
It took me a minute to appreciate this eye serum. I am used to using thicker eye creams, especially during the winter, so when it came time to try out this product I was a bit confused. However, as the weather warmed up, I began to grab for this product again and again. It is so thin and lightweight yet packs a punch of hydration AND keeps my concealer looking 100. I am nearing the end of my tube and definitely plan on repurchasing this product.
Indie Squalane Facial Oil
This 100% olive-derived squalane oil helps provide hydration, balance excess oil, and soothe the skin. Regardless of the state of my skin, this oil always helps heal my skin and prevent future breakouts. Sounds crazy, but you may just need to try it for yourself!
This hydrating and alcohol-free toner is the only “daily toner” that I use. It is so gentle and effective in balancing the pH levels in my skin, always leaving it feeling clean and hydrated. I cannot go without this product.
Caudalie VinoSource Hydrating Serum
I apply this oil-free serum morning and night after toning, and before moisturizer. It contains hylauronic acid to help soothe and hydrate the skin. It is AMAZING.
Youth to the People Adaptogen Face Mist
This soothing mist contains a combination of antioxidant-rich adaptogens, hyaluronic acid, and soothing peptides to hydrate, calm, and soothe the skin. It is SO fine, its perfect for setting makeup as well as prepping the skin for skincare!
This powerhouse product is a chemical exfoliating toner that helps smooth texture, minimize the size of pores, and firm the skin. It contains a blend of 8% lactic acid and 3% glycolic acid. I use this every other night on my more sensitive skin and it has been working wonders.
If you are interested in trying Youth to the People, they also just launched this AWESOME minis/travel kit that lets you try FIVE of their products for under $50! Highly Recommend.
