Spring Beauty Refresh

If you're like me, you love your tried-and-true makeup products. I have some products I've used for years, and once I know something works, I'm fine to keep it the same for awhile. But every so often, I like to switch things up and try something new. My last trip to Ulta was meant just to find a new foundation, but next thing you know, I ended up with multiple new products to try. 

I purchased the Bare Minerals foundation on a recommendation, but when I got it home, it was not the right fit. While I was looking for a new dewy appearance, the Bare Minerals offered more of a matte finish which for my dryer skin was not best. I hopped back over to Ulta and ended up with the Too Faced Born This Way, and so far I am loving it! You can layer the coverage and it also has the dewy finish I was looking for. I have used EsteƩ Lauder DoubleWear for years and though I'm still a fan, I just wanted to try something new!

Some other recently purchased beauty items:

+ Rodan + Fields Lash Boost: A little over a month ago, I decided to take a break from lash extensions and try Lash Boost instead. I had heard a lot of great things about the product but wasn't sure if it would work for me. But even about 5 weeks in, I'm already seeing great results, especially when paired with the next two products. 

+ Benefit They're Real Primer: This primer is amazing! I have used it several times without mascara on top if I'm just running errands with minimal makeup. I love that the brush separates and lengthens my lashes. 

+ L'oreal Telescopic Mascara: I absolutely love this mascara! I haven't used it without the primer so I don't know if I would love it as much, but it takes the results I have with the They're Real primer and lengthens! Sometimes I will go over my lashes again with the primer just to brush them out. 

+ Nyx Butter Gloss: I have used several Nyx products and been happy with them (I like the dewy makeup spray) and this butter gloss is great! I love the color options and the one I chose is a perfect neutral. 

+ Buxom Full-On Lip Cream: This lip gloss is my absolute favorite! I love the lip plumper and though I've tried multiple colors (I'm on my 5th tube of this stuff...) the color Dolly is my favorite.

  2. The NYX Butter Gloss is such a great drugstore find-I like it in the color Dulce De Leche the best-it's such a pretty nude-y brown shade!

  4. I love Nyx butter gloss as well. I used to use bare mineral foundation but switch a few years ago to smash box.
