HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I'm probably supposed to post something sappy about goals and new beginnings and all of that. But that crap is for my journal. And a facebook post or two. I just want to talk about makeup and girly stuff...
So, I really wanted to highlight some of the beauty (hair and makeup mostly) products I discovered over the last year, repurchased over the last year, fell in love with over the last year and decided wasn't worth my spit in the last year. Obviously, I can't name everything...but tell me your faves and flops in the comments.
Okay, so for me to repurchase something (or even hit pan in general before I get bored) is a big deal. Usually, by the time I run out of a product, I'm over it and onto something new. But there are a few things I've repurchased this year. I'll keep it snappy, ya'll.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Beach Spray
Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Eyeliner
Loreal Telescopic Mascara
My go-to mascara. I love it. I've used it since high school and every time I try something else I'm disappointed. Don't get the other types in the telescopic line. Stay with the original or Carbon Black.
Egyptian Magic Cream
I have blogged about this in the past and I'm still loving it. I use this on: my face, my hair, my sunburns, my kids' sunburns, Ellie's eczema, dry hands, etc.
Doesn't leave that gross film, not super pigmented but great for over lipstick or alone when you don't want to have a lot going on. Not sticky at all.
NYX Butter Gloss
ELF Mineral Eye Primer
Nothing else works as well...
As far as favorites go, I've had a few this year that I haven't changed my mind about and I still love. Here ya go:
Living Proof Style Extender
ELF Studio Brushes
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
Revlon Colorstay Nail Polish
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
There have been a few things this year that I've purchased either on a whim or by recommendation that frankly suck. And nothing makes me more mad than when I waste my money.
Not Your Mothers Sea Salt Spray
Moroccan Sea Salt Spray
Big Sexy Hair Root Pump
Revlon Colorstay Lipliner in Sienna
Tresemme Dry Shampoo
Here are a few things I'm looking to try this year. Let me know if you've tried any and if I should take the plunge or keep my boots on.
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish
Which shade? Worth the money? Any dupes?
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
I know, I know. Everyone already has it. But...should I, too? Or is it too matte? (If that's possible.)
How long does the scent last? I'm not paying that much for perfume that lasts for a half an hour.
Well, happy 2014, everyone. Go ahead and insert something heartwarming and thoughtful about new beginnings >here< if it makes you feel better about this post that really doesn't have a lot of depth. But I don't care...
That's why I wrote it.
