Fave Beauty Products | October

I haven’t written about beauty products recently but I wanted to share the ones I’ve been using quite a bit lately & why I love them.

Cerave SA Cream for Rough & Bumpy Skin

I’ve talked about this product in my top 10 beauty products post but I’ve been breaking it out a lot more lately now that the weather has gotten colder. Whenever it gets cold, my skin gets drier and I feel like I have goosebumps all over my body that won’t go away. This, of course, isn’t goosebumps but it’s called keratosis pilaris (KP). KP causes small bumps all over your skin that look like goosebumps but just kind of stick around.

Mine is only on my legs but it makes me itch and pick at the bumps. To avoid this, I use this little baby. This makes my skin so smooth and gets rid of my bumps! Two nights ago, my legs itched like crazy and the bumps were all over. I put some of this on and the next morning, the bumps weren’t visible and my legs were hydrated. I LOVE THIS STUFF. You can get it from Target or from Amazon!

ChapStick Total Hydration 3 in 1

My lips are always chapped but in the winter, it gets worse. Also, it doesn’t help that when I’m lost in thought or I’m focusing on something, I will chew on my lips. One thing I really wanted to do was find a good chapstick. I’ve used tons of them, more than you can imagine but this one is my favorite one so far. It’s just pure moisture and I can still feel it on my lips 30 minutes later! It doesn’t just disappear. It’s been great at keeping my lips hydrated because when they’re not, that’s when they peel the most. The sweet peach flavor (scent?) is great as well. I bought it from Target in-store but I have attached the link here.

Batiste Dry Shampoo: Divine Dark

I’m a fan of dry shampoo and I probably will be until someone invents a machine that will wash and style my hair for me in my house while I watch TV. Anyway, I ran out of dry shampoo last month and bought this bottle to try it out. I’ve tried the other Batiste dry shampoos and they were great but I had heard a lot about this one. Let me tell you, it is wonderful! My hair is blonde but my roots are my natural dark brown so this is perfect for me because that’s where all the oil is! It doesn’t leave the white residue and blends in really well. I’m obsessed with it.

One thing I will warn you about is the horror scene that will occur when you shower after using it. I really didn’t put two and two together that it sprays out color (because I’m smart like that) so I had shampooed my hair and was happily rinsing it out when I looked down and saw the brownest water I had ever seen. Had I rolled around in mud and not realized it? Nope, it was just the color from a day of lots of needed dry shampoo. You might want to pick up a clarifying shampoo after using this but personally, I think it’s worth it. Also, I haven’t noticed any color transfer to my clothes or bed from using it so hopefully it’s the same for you. You can get it from Ulta for $8.99!

Artnaturals Purple Shampoo

Artnaturals Purple Shampoo, 16 Ounce

Speaking of the blonde in my hair, I have to keep it nice and toned because I hate when it goes brassy! My friend Ally told me about this shampoo that she got on Amazon and I’ve loved it so much. I’ve tried so many purple shampoos and this one seems to work for me. My shower is filled with purple shampoos that I’ll try and hate and I’ll end up going back to this one. The thing that I’ve noticed with purple shampoos, though, is that everyone is totally different. I’ve had super nice ones recommended that don’t work for me so try it and tell me what you think! If it doesn’t work, let me know what does ūüôā Get it from Amazon here.

Bite Beauty Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé

I got a sample of this lip crayon in my Sephora box and I’ve been so obsessed with it. It’s close to my natural lip color so when I look extra pale and ghosty, I swipe this on and it rejuvenates me. It goes on super smooth and doesn’t leave the buildup of a lipstick. I’ve been meaning to try more colors because they have a ton! I keep this in my purse whenever I need to spruce up my look. Get it from Sephora here.

What are you obsessed with right now??

New Beauty Favorites

Recently, I’ve tried out some new beauty products that I really liked and wanted to share with you!

First one up is thanks to Michelle pushing me to always fill in my eyebrows. I knew it looked better when I did but I’ll be honest, I was lazy and it took too long to fill in with the pencil I bought. I was at Ulta the other day and just looking around and I came across the¬†Anastasia Beverly Hills¬†section. I had one of their brow pencils before but then I saw that they had a¬†brow pomade¬†that I could apply with a brush. I tried a little in the store and I was sold. I bought the blonde color. I ended up going back to buy a new brush and this is so much easier for me to apply. I’m the same way with eyeliner. I can’t apply it with a pencil. I need to apply it with a brush because my hand is so unsteady. I am also looking to try a new eyeliner since I’m almost out so if you have any suggestions let me know!

My next new product is something my sister told me about. I’ve had some weird issues with most lip products irritating my lips but I still wanted to try this. It’s the¬†Clinique Chubby Stick Lip Balm. I wanted to try all the colors but I have a hard time with that in stores where I know others have also tried it on their lips. I ended up buying the color Pudgy Peony and I really liked it! It is still very natural looking and was very moisturizing on my lips and didn’t irritate them at all. My sister has a couple that I tried and the Super Strawberry was great too.

My last new product is the shampoo and conditioner by¬†DevaCurl. I already use their¬†Light Defining Gel¬†and I love it. Michelle’s sister, Annette, started using the shampoo and conditioner and gave me some to try. It smelled so good! It was a little weird because the shampoo doesn’t really lather but it still cleaned my hair just fine. My hair gets so tangled when I wash it and the conditioner actually helped a lot with it. I think it would help my waves if I used it consistently but I don’t wear my hair like that every day. I think I’m going to watch for Ulta to put it on sale and then I’ll buy it since it’s a little pricey. You can find the shampoo¬†here¬†and the conditioner¬†here.

Let me know if you’ve tried any of these or if you have others I should try. I really do need eyeliner suggestions!

New Beauty Faves

Whenever I find new products, I’m always ranting and raving about it to everyone. I found a few that I wanted to talk to you guys about and hope you love them as much as I do!

I am, by no means, a makeup artist but I do love trying out new makeup every once in a while! Recently, I was at Ulta trying to buy a gift for someone else but how can you not shop around for yourself while you’re there? It’s incredibly hard not to.

I’m a huge fan of Tarte Cosmetics so I thought I’d try their Amazonian Clay foundation. It has been so good! I’m shocked how well of a coverage it gives me with so little. It’s also such a good match to my skin that I was very pleasantly surprised. If you haven’t tried it, you¬†should. My shade is Tan Honey & you can get it from Ulta here.

I had also heard a lot about Living Proof’s In-Shower Styler and I’m already a fan of their dry shampoo so I thought I’d try it. This stuff is so easy to use and it’s great! I just wash my hair like normal in the shower and then after I rinse out my conditioner, I massage and scrunch in some of the Styler, wait a little bit and then lightly rinse (you don’t want to rinse all of it out). It gives me some great waves and curls without doing much work. Try it out & tell me what you think! You can get it from Ulta here.

For Christmas last year, Steph got me a great oval makeup brush that I just starting using more often. I had never tried using these types of brushes before so at first when I got it, I wasn’t super impressed. But I started using it more often when I had time to spend on doing my makeup and I fell in love with it. It makes my foundation look so smooth and helps me cover up blemishes. You can get it from Amazon here. I definitely recommend having one of these brushes in your arsenal because it’s a game-changer.

Just like I like trying on new foundations, I also love trying out liquid eyeliners. I’m always looking for a long-lasting eyeliner because I swear mine always rubs off. I stopped by Sephora at the mall the other day and found Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty line and thought I’d try out her eyeliner. This is quite possibly the greatest eyeliner I’ve found yet. It stays on SO WELL. It has stayed on through naps, the hot Utah summer, and has stayed on during those times when I’ve come home super late and fell asleep without taking my makeup off (I know, bad Michelle). I’m hooked. You guys have to try it for yourselves and tell me what you think! You can get it from Sephora here.

I can’t wait for you guys to try these products out! Let me know what you think!
