I haven't done a beauty favorites post in a long time! I've been in kind of a routine that I like, not changing anything in a while. But since I got some new stuff around Christmas, I wanted to share some of my new favorite things.
Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara-- Fun Fact: I haven't bought mascara in years. I use the mini ones that come in the Clinique free gifts. My grandma always buys her Clinique products during the free gift days, and she gives the mascara to me. The Clinique Lash Doubling and High Impact mascaras are so wonderful that I haven't needed to buy anything else. But I got this as part of my birthday gift from Sephora last December and have been using it ever since. I really, really love it. It's lengthening and volumizing without clumping. I don't know if I'll spend the $24 on it when I run out since I do love the free mascara that I currently get, but it will definitely be a consideration.
St. Ives Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer-- I bought this due to a recommendation from Jenn. Since I turned 30 at the end of last year, I wanted to start being proactive with my anti-aging skincare. It's SO hydrating that I think it's the perfect nighttime moisturizer. (For daytime, I prefer something with SPF, which this doesn't have.) I love how my skin feels after I put it on and in the morning after I wake up. And the best part is that it's such a great value. The container is huge (10 oz) for only $4.79 on amazon!
Naked3 Palette-- I can't say enough about the Naked3 palette. I adore almost everything that Urban Decay does, and this takes the cake for me. I have used literally every single shadow in this palette (which is unheard of for me) and love them. My favorite combo is Burnout on my lid, Liar on the crease and outer corner, Dust under my brow and in the inner corner, and Blackheart as a liner. LOVE. The only thing I do hate is that I can't go buy my favorites individually.
Tried any of these? What are some of your other favorite beauty products?
