I get to test out a lot of products but I don’t always love them all. When I find a product I love, I tend to overuse it until I find another I like more 🙂 I know I ‘m not the only one right?
The following products are what I’m loving ATM!
Vichy Minéral 89 Eyes $35
You all know I’m a huge fan of Minéral 89 Serum and once Vichy launched the eye equivalent I knew I had to get my hands on it ASAP! Minéral 89 Eyes is loaded with pure caffeine and hyaluornic acid to hydrate, brighten and reduces eye bags. I’m about 5 weeks into the my first bottle and I’m impressed. My eyes look brighter and more awake. There’s significant hydration in this area but I’m still struggling with eye bags, albeit they are not as pigmented as as usual. I’m hoping with continuous use of the Minéral 89 Eyes the pigmentation will reduce.
You can wear the eye serum alone or under makeup. Personally during the week I add some concealer but on weekends, it’s a bare face ( with sunscreen of course) and thanks to this gem, I feel confident and my little issues that I have with my eye area ( minor fine lines, dullness, flakiness) aren’t noticeable!
Make Up Forever Artist Nude Creme Liquid Lipsticks $25
Make Up Forever sent me these very wearable and long lasting Artist Nude Creme liquid lipsticks!
Exposed, on the left, is a medium warn coral beige and Bluff, on the right, is a light warm pinky brown shade.
They are A-mazing!
Artist Nude lipsticks come in 12 nude shades and have a satin finish. These are long lasting , non drying, non bleeding and so so creamy. I would definitely call these a hybrid of gloss + lipstick. They don’t have a sticky or tacky feel to them, and thanks to the small, precise applicator, they apply easily with no skipping on the lips. I’ve been wearing them all Summer! They compliment all skin tones and I will definitely be purchasing a few other shades to take me into the Fall season. I will have to repurchase Buff because I’m down to my last few swipes 🙂
Pixi Beauty DetoxifEYE $34
I have instagrammed my love for Pixi’s DetoxifEYE several times and continue to preach my *love* for them on the blog!
Honestly, they are my fave product from the entire Pixi line. Here’s why I love them so much. Each hydrogel patch is loaded with hyaluronic acid and caffeine to intensely hydrate, smooth and depuff your dark circles and eye bags. Did you notice I said , intensely? If I ‘ve had a sleepless night , which often I do, I apply these in the morning and I feel and look refreshed!
I have used many different eye patches to hydrate my delicate eye area and none of them ( which were more $$) worked to hydrate as much as DetoxifEYE did.
There are 30 pairs in a pack and comes with a spatula to help lift the delicate patches out of the container. I like to leave mine on for as long as I possibly can, around 30 minutes, but the suggested time is 10 min. I do house work with them on, surf the net and most often, I blog with them on just like I’m doing now. Yep that’s me, blogging and detoxifEYEing! They adhere to your skin quickly and feel very comfortable without irritating the eyes. I am on my 2nd package as I go through them very quickly. I absolutely cannot live without my detoxifEYE patches.
Essie ” Watermelon” Nail Polish $10
All Summer I’ve worn one nail polish colour and it’s this one here,” Watermelon” by Essie.
It’s a flirty, fun, colourful shade that can be worn with anything. It’s not a true red or pink, it’s a mix of both IMO! I’ve worn it to the office as well as to weddings. It’s super versatile and I’m basically obsessed! Come Fall , I will transition into something more neutral. I’m also in love with these shades from Essie :
“Pin Me Pink”
” Dress Call”
Sephora Face Mask Applicator $10.50
I feel this name is not really suited for the tool. I bought this little gem on the recommendation of a very talented Sephora makeup artist who uses it to gently exfoliate the skin.
I’ve become obsessed with exfoliating my face with this little tool. It’s super gentle and sometimes I only use it to massage my skin with water. It’s great for getting rid of dead skin in a very gently and relaxing method. I start with adding the exfoliator product, which is currently Dermalogica Superfoliant Powder Exfoliant to my palm and pick it up with the mask applicator tool. This is just preference, but I prefer to have the skin a bit moist/wet before applying any exfoliator. In circular motions starting at the top of the forehead, start to work the product , gently, onto the skin, always in circular motion never side to side or up and down. Then move on to the temples, cheeks, nose, chin and end with the neck area. Remember, your neck and décolletage need some TLC also!
