The issue with having such a love for beauty products is that when I go to Sephora or Ulta, most of the products I buy are a repurchase. Of course I take peeks at my favorite brands just to make sure I didn’t miss a new release and see if there is anything new that peeks my interest but I am at the stage now where a lot of my Sephora runs are to replenish a staple. Below are a few of them that I would like to share with you so that they can perhaps become a staple for you as well.
Oribe Dry Thickening Spray
I picked this up from Blue Mercury since Sephora or Ulta do not carry it. I prefer this over the Dry Texturizing Spray because I always use my Bumble to Bumble Pret A Powder. This product is great for volume starting at the midlength and down to the ends. It’s so lightweight but very powerful. When I use this stuff I don’t really even need to use a hairspray for hold. When I style my hair I usually shower at night and then curl my hair in the morning with my straightener, rake through the curls and then blast my length with this stuff. Or, since I have fine hair that has a little bit of texture, I will use this on 2nd and 3rdday straight hair for a beachy, effortless look. The price tag is a little steep – $39 but us girls with fine hair NEED something like this to help our mid strands out. If you have the budget or are a ‘hair’ girl (I’m a blush girl) then anything by Oribe is worth the investment because the quality and value are just incomparable.
Nars Pro Prime
I don’t really need to say much here. Best eye shadow primer ever. Period. I have oily eyelids…like really oily *insert funny scene form Girls Season 1 when Hannah is at work and her coworker tells her that* All you need to do is read the reviews and that is enough to convince you. I have been using it for about two years and have gone through only three tubes of it. I will wear a look for 10 hours and I don’t think I have ever seen it crease more than three times. When I accidentally sleep with my make up on *cringe* my eye look STILL gives it.
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
For ten bucks just dive right in…get one of your mom, your friend and even her friend…It’s great. Does not move. I know some people feel indifferent but this is another holy grail product that is perfectly priced and lasts quite awhile. It is a buildable lower lash mascara that dries pretty quickly. I have endured some pretty intense sweat sessions with this on and it looks just as good as when I put it on in the morning. The other awesome thing is it is still easy to remove!
Caudalie Moisturizing Toner
I love this product so much that I wrote a review about it on the Sephora website…do not judge. It is so hydrating and you need the tiniest amount. It does not strip the skin whatsoever and serves a great first layer to your serums and moisturizers. It has a subtle scent and I use this all year round. It’s very refreshing but still light. I’ve gone through bottles and bottles of this stuff and just wish they had an industrial size bottle so I didn’t have to repurchase so frequently. If you are someone that has dry or even oily skin this is a great supplement to your regimen.
Thanks for reading everyone!
