tell you what I’m into lately. I found an amazing makeup sponge that is super cheap. It’s the Real Techniques Miracle Airblend Mattifying Beauty Makeup Sponge. I use it for almost every step of my makeup. It gives a flawless foundation finish, and blends your bronzers, blushes, and highlighters beautifully. It has a flat edge, rounded sides, and precision tip to get all over your face. As with all these sponges they work better when you use them wet.

I’m puckering up with Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Lip Plumper. I’m not one to use lip plumping products but I was sent this for free, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. OMG this stuff actually works. My lips were immediatly plumped and left with beautiful shine too.

I’m getting Big Hair with Tresemme’s One Step 5 in 1 Texture spray. It makes my beach waves look dramatic, and it revives next day hair. I usually use aerosol texture sprays, this seems to have a stronger grip.

Try out my May finds, and let me know yours….

with your purchasing power. It’s easy with Gen See Beauty. This clean makeup company makes products that are sustainable and created ethically. I have been using their Spectator Sport Mascara and Clean Sheen Lip Gloss. I didn’t have high expectations for the Mascara because in the past “clean mascara” has let me down. I was wrong! My favorite thing about it is that it does not transfer. I have long lashes and all mascaras leave black on my brow bone. This one did not, even in extreme humidity. It lengthened, Curled, and Separated as well. There was zero clumping, it’s waterproof, yet easy to remove. My favorite thing about the Lip Gloss is the applicator. It perfectly covers your lips in this super hydrating, clear gloss. It’s major shine with zero color. Their website goes into detail on every ingredient in the cosmetics as well as the packaging. Don’t you wish everyone was as transparent…

I’m taking into 2022….

OJESH Premium Lifting Face Mask. This is the best sheet mask I have found. It is a luxury sheet mask that uses hyaluronic acid and marine sponge collagen to lift, plump, and rejuvenate skin. I notice immediate results with this.

 

Givenchy Teint Couture Everwear 24h Foundation SPF 29. I love this foundation because it’s breathable yet lasts 24 hours. It gives full coverage and has hydrating properties and spf. 

Chantecaille Bio Lifting Mask. This mask is powered by botanicals that fight lines and wrinkles. You can use it as a 10 minute mask or leave in on overnight for majorly hydrated skin.

PanteenSmooth Airspray Hairspray. This hairspray has a light, flexible, hold and is brushable. A great alternative to Elnett

Covergirl Clean Fresh Lip Stylo. This lightweight lipstick feels like gloss. It’s nourishing and conditioning. It adds a hint of shine and color. 

TYPOLOGY Nourishing Hair Oil with Pequi 5% and Argan Oil. I’ve reviewed this before, but I’ve re-fallen in love with it. It is a rich oil that protects and controls hair. It completly takes away my frizz.

Skinbetter’s AlphaRet Clearing Serum is a retinoid based serum that doesn’t mess around. It is designed for oilier, blemish prone skin. AlphaRet is a patented technology that combines retinoid and an AHA. It will improve the overall clarity, tone and texture. It’s made with salicylic acid, BHA’s, and hydrating & soothing ingrediants.

I love every product from this line, and this product does not disappoint. It is designed to boost the effects of your skincare while resurfacing and hydrating the skin. 


Australian Gold’s Plant Based Lotion & Sunscreen with SPF 50 is my favorite new sunblock. It smells amazing. It is part of their new Plant Based line, and formulated with Aloe Vera and Coconut Oil. 


Givenchy’s Le Rouge Universal Hydrating Lip Balm is my go to balm for under my lipstick or gloss. It’s a clear moisturizing balm that is designed to hydrate up to 24hrs. It has hyaluronic acid and jojoba seed extract to soothe and nourish lips all day. 

Shine lip gloss with Patricia de Leon’s Sexy Shine Lip Gloss. I have it in Angel. It is the best feeling lipgloss I have ever used. It’s super light, and extremely silky. There is zero stickiness, or oiliness. I don’t feel the need to constantly reapply.  The line is vegan and cruelty free. So pucker up to PDL Cosmetics, and kiss the sticky, heavy, glosses goodbye…

soft lips are easy to attain with Tree Hut’s Sugarlips Sweet Mint Lip Scrub. I’m very picky about lip scrubs. I find they often don’t have the right percentage of scrubber vs oil. This one- is one of the best I have ever tried. It quickly exfoliates your lips while softening and hydrating skin. It uses Indian Peppermint Oil which has a natural plumping effect. As well as Shea Butter and Jojoba Seed Oil to hydrate, condition and protect. So get with Tree Hut and put that mouth to good use….;)

because they look amazing and are soft and shiny. My new favorite lip products is Locked & Lit from Smith & Cult. It’s a CBD lip balm gives the most perfect, natural, shine and look. It uses hemp derived CBD to soothe and protect. Coconut derived MCT oil provides intense hydration. I have the clear, which is green in the jar, and it gives the most perfect natural lip color boost. I love how long it lasts, as apposed to many balms that seem to dissipate in minutes. So pucker up for Smith & Cult and make your lips luscious…

and my lip gloss. I love my 3 Graces lip gloss for the effect, and the messages inscribed on the package. 3 Graces started as a “collaboration between a classically trained portrait artist and skilled makeup artist. The glosses feature beautiful, vibrant pigments infused with their signature lip serum for intense color that gives a radiant shine to your lips.” Each gloss has a positive message written on the package. I use their Pink Nude, and the package reminds me  ‘In Everything Give Thanks’. There are 7 colors to choose from. Your lips will be soft and hydrated, with high shine. So pucker up for 3 Graces and give them lip….

starts with a great lip scrub. I am currently loving WetnWild’s Perfect Pout Watermelon Lip Scrub. It tastes amazing and is less than $5. It will buff away dead skin leaving lips soft and hydrated. It uses Murumuru Seed butter, Vitamin E, and Tucuma Seed butter for extra smoothness. So Pucker up with WetnWild, and put those lips to good use…

Lip-Lacquer_1_Desire_open_800x
Lucky Chick Cosmetics. This line is designed to give ultimate coverage in one swipe to lips and eyes. They believe in creamy textures, hydration, cruelty free, clean beauty. The products are infused with good for you ingredients like coffee, rose, jojoba oil, and cucumber extracts. I have been using their Lip lacquer in Desire. Desire is a stunning red with blue undertones. It has major color and shine, while lasting for hours. It does not feather, and does not dry out your lips. So get Lucky Chick for major color and noticeable lips, because there’s nothing wrong with a little attention ;)…..
