Hello, my friends!
Just popping in with a few new product favorites for you! Today, they're all beauty items. I don't share anything with you here, unless I've used it and like it a lot, so hopefully these posts help you find a new product or two, to love!
First up, I mentioned awhile back, that I was trying out some Makeup Geek eye shadows and brushes and would let you know what I thought. I shared that I'd gotten a Z-Palette to put the eye shadow pans in and I have since gotten more Makeup Geek (MUG) eye shadows, as well as some eye shadow pans from MAC. The above photo isn't of the specific colors I have, but it let's you see what I'm talking about, in case you missed the previous Favorite Things post.
Let me interject that I've been wearing MAC eye shadows for years, and love them. What I didn't know was that at some point, they dropped the $10 price per eye shadow pan, to just $6, which is the same price as most of the MUG ones! (This is for the eye shadow in the metal pan only...no plastic case around it.) SO, that being said, my big Z-Palette has a lovely mix of both brands in it now. I will say that the magnets on the bottom of the MAC pans aren't quite as strong as the MUG ones, so the MAC ones slide a bit. Totally minor thing, but I'm just throwing it out there for your info. I still love my MAC shadows but I have to say that the MUG eye shadows are every bit as good! I've only got one color that I am slightly less of a fan of (Graphite), and that's because I didn't realize that it has actual glitter bits in it, and therefore, I've had a bit of fall out on my cheeks when using it. I did get lots of others though, that are SUPER shimmery without being glittery. Does that make sense? I want lots of shine sometimes, but I DON'T want glitter all over my face. So I tend to steer clear of the glittery ones. Love the shimmer ones though!
Other than that one, I've been thrilled with all of them. Whether shimmery or matte, they are all smooth as butter and blend like a dream! Oh, and for what it's worth, the MUG shipping charges are dirt cheap!
Next, is a detangler. I went to the salon recently and got 6+ inches cut off of my hair (it's been awhile - haha!) and after my stylist washed and conditioned my hair, she sprayed this detangler all over it. I have to say that I was skeptical at first given that a lot of detanglers don't actually seem to detangle all that well, but man, this stuff works! Firstly, it smells amazing, but beyond that, it makes really quick work of detangling long hair and making it a breeze to comb through. If you have long hair -- or little girls that do -- you might want to give this a try. And bonus, your hair (or your little's hair) will smell like you just left the salon, all day long! Sweet!
I recently got this cuticle remover and have been so impressed so far. As you may already know, I love to paint my nails and do so often, but I'm not so great about cuticle maintenance. This is helping me to have much better looking cuticles, so this one gets two thumbs up from me! It's easy to use and it works fast, which I love! Ain't nobody got time to sit around messing with their cuticles! Hahaha!
So these are a recent addition to my bedtime routine and I'm loving them. They're great for taking off makeup before bed and they don't dry out my skin or leave my face feeling gunky at all. I get mine at Target, but here's a link to them at Amazon, in case you don't have a Target near you.
One more for you.....This one is an Ulta exclusive, so you have to purchase it from them. It's a double-ended lipstick and matching lipgloss all in one! I LOVE that you can easily have both the lipstick and gloss that matches, right there together with no guess-work AND you don't have to carry around two tubes of product! I have the colors Basic and VIP. The feel great on the lip, they're very creamy and moisturizing, the colors are super pretty and they smell yummy, too! ;)
All right, friends....I'm off for now, but I hope these product favorites are something you might like, too. Have you tried any of them yourself? Do you have a favorite you'd like to share with me? Feel free to leave it in the comments section.....we can all check out each other's favorites that way!
Have a great day!
