Friday Favorites: Beauty Products

Every Friday we are going to share some of our favorites and today it is all about beauty products. Some of our favorite blog posts are ones in which we get tips and tricks to try. As beauty product junkies we love getting recommendations on what to try so without further ado here are our picks.

Wen’s Picks

These three products are always in my drawer or handbag. They’re a higher price point, but definitely worth checking out during Sephora’s 20% sale they hold a few times a year.

#1: Diorshow Mascara in Black

Diorshow has been around for years. It was my first non-drugstore mascara purchase and it’s been love every since. Last year they did a redesign and it’s better than ever. The brush is the perfect size with the right amount of product, doesn’t clump or smudge and gives your lashes the volume they need for everyday wear.

#2: Dior Addict Lip Glow in Sheer Pink

Dior Addict Lip Glow in sheer pink is a great combo of color and enhancing your natural lips. It’s more color than a chapstick, but still sheer, hydrating and provides a bit of SPF protection.

#3: Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette in Naked

I like the Flushed palette in Naked (comes in three colors). In this palette you get a bronzer, blush, and highlighter that can all be blended together for the sun-kissed look you’ll be craving in January. The colors are pigmented but blend well to create the look you’re going for whether its day or night. I really like the bronzer as it is a bit more matte and not shimmery. The blush is not too pink, more of a neutral that allows for everyday wear. The highlighter adds some shimmer for those nights out. I love the size as it’s perfect for travel or throwing in my handbag when I know I’m going to need to reapply when I’m running from work to an after work meeting or an impromptu night out.

Jen’s Picks

Hi, my name is Jen and I am a product junkie. My brother got me a Birchbox subscription last August as a little gift and he has yet to cancel it (shhhh don’t tell him) so I get fun little gifts every month!! My counter is very cluttered with every brand under the sun. I will say that I tend to always wander back to Clinique as a tried and true.

#1 Revlon PhotoReady Perfecting Primer

The one thing I have learned when it comes to makeup is that having a great primer will help your makeup last longer and look better when applied. I really like how smooth this makes my face and it helps take away shine without making my skin too matte. Plus, I can pick it up anywhere.

#2: Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder

Bronzer is a must for me, I never tan I am pale pretty much year round so the only way I get some color and look fresh is with makeup. This bronzer works great and lasts awhile. It has a little shimmer but not overpowering.

#3: Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in Medium

This little gem came in a Birchbox and prior to using this I didn’t really do anything with my eyebrows besides plucking. Game changer! It helps sculpt your brows, fill in less full spots and just give your eyes a total pop. I find if I don’t want to wear a lot of eye makeup and just use this, my face looks more put together. Super easy too use and buildable so you don’t end up with heavy and thick eyebrows.

So there you have, our favorites and we would love to know yours! Comment below!!
