Makeup Wars: Favorite Hair Products!

 Press Sample/I bought it  Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador

It is time for another Makeup Wars! This time we are talking about our favorite Hair Products! 

Hair products are near and dear to my heart. I put a lot of time and effort into my hair. So, I want to use products that bring out the best in my hair. I will fully admit that I probably spend more than I need to on highlights and cuts. So, I want to take care of my investment, lol! I am not satisified with "ok" hair. I want shiny and pretty hair everyday. If my hair looks good, I feel better about myself overall! Before diving into my favorite hair products, lets talk a bit about my hair type.

My Hair:
I have heavily highlighted, long, and thick hair. My hair is coarse in texture. Rarely is a product "too rich" for me. In fact, I struggle to find products that are moisturizing and soothing enough for my hair. Because of my highlights, my hair is on the dry and damaged side. However, I have found that using really great products combats the damage and makes my hair look healthy.

My Favorite Products: 
These favorites have been collected over the years. Some are very old favorites and some of these are new favorites. Either way, these are all heavy hitters in my weekly hair routine. So, let's dive right in.

To find out all of the details about these products and why I love them, please click "read more" below! :)

Aveeno's NEW Absolutely Ageless Line: Cleanser and Eye Cream Review

 Press Sample Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador
#AbsolutelyAgeless #AveenoAmbassador

I just love trying out new products from Aveeno! The AVEENO® Brand, known for harnessing the power of ACTIVE NATURALS® ingredients, presents the AVEENO® Absolutely AgelessTM Eye Cream and Nourishing Cleanser. These items are part of the new AVEENO® Absolutely AgelessTM collection. 

This line features Aveeno's New ACTIVE NATURALS® Blackberry Complex which combines blackberry leaf extract and dill to help improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. These breakthrough ingredients nourish skin with nutrients to help keep it looking and feeling healthy over time. Studies have shown that skin treated with blackberry leaf and dill extracts have increased elasticity. 
  • AVEENO® ABSOLUTELY AGELESS™ Restorative Night Cream
  • AVEENO® ABSOLUTELY AGELESS™ Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30
  • AVEENO® ABSOLUTELY AGELESS™ Nourishing Cleanser
  • AVEENO® ABSOLUTELY AGELESS™ Intensive Renewal Serum

This cleanser is a fantastic start to your skincare routine. This gel-based cleanser gently cleanses my skin and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. The cleanser is scented. However, the addition of scent does not seem to irritate my skin. This cleanser removes all of the dirt and impurities in my skin without over-drying it. The cleanser contains Aveeno's antioxidant rich blackberry extract and is clinically proven to help preserve skin's natural moisture barrier. 

I really enjoy using this eye cream! My eyes are sensitive and are prone to redness, irritation, and my eyes water very easily. I found this eye cream to be both gentle and effective. After using this product for a few weeks, my eye area looks and feels soothed and hydrated. Plus, I find that this eye cream is an ideal base for makeup. It does not leave the eye area feeling overly greasy. This eye cream plumps up my eye area skin and fine lines look less apparent. Plus, this eye cream helps to depuff the eyes as well. I think this is an ideal eye cream for daytime use (you can use it day or night, but I prefer to use it during the day).

The new AVEENO Absolutely Ageless Collection contains a full range of products. Be sure to check out the collection next time you are at the drug store! The Eye Cream and Nourishing Cleanser are the first ones that I added to my daily routine. I am excited to explore the rest of the collection, too! I have had great results with these two products. :)

Warm Weather Makeup Updates from Laura Mercier

Affiliate Link Press Sample

Now that the hot weather of the season has officially arrived, it’s time to clean out my makeup stash! What a perfect time to sort through everything: toss any old, expired or unnecessary products in favor of fresh, new products! Not to mention, after just making a move, it is the perfect time to de-clutter and downsize the collection. I find that when I eliminate products that I don't need or use, I end up liking the remaining products even more! Plus, when you eliminate the clutter, you can see what items that you actually need to add. For me, those areas are foundations and lip products. Aside from mascara that expires the quickest, lippies and foundations do not last long either. So, I am super excited to add some new lips shades and foundations for the Summer season! 

Laura Mercier has long been one of my go-to makeup brands. The products are just amazing! I am excited to add an assortment of the new Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colors and the Laura Mercier cult-classic Tinted Moisturizer with Broad Spectrum SPF 20

Summer Makeup Updates:
Trade in a heavy coverage foundation for a more lightweight version, like Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 Sunscreen ($44). Laura Mercier’s original multitasker perfectly blends skincare and makeup to give skin a healthy, no-makeup look with a soft hint of color and SPF protection (ideal for those sunshiny spring days.) The lightweight formula provides a natural appearance while adding a healthy glow to the complexion. I just love this product! Such great coverage for a tinted moisturizer! Plus, I love giving my skin a little boost of SPF protection (especially in the Summer). I wear the shade Cameo which is a very close match for my fair skin.

Brighten up your lip color with NEW Velour Lovers Lip Colour ($28, November 2015). This highly pigmented, moisturizing lip color couples delicate mattifying powders with moisturizing mango butter to create a velvety texture that is smooth, creamy and long-wearing. A revolution in matte lipstick, the formula is buildable, offering medium to high coverage, so you can custom the perfect look for the spring. 

I just love the formula of these lip colors! The pigment is so saturated. Just a quick swipe lays down a blanket of smooth and rich color. I tried the following shades (listed left to right, top to bottom from the swatch above): Lover, Coquette, Embrace, Devotion, Fantasy, Boudoir, and French Kiss. Plus, can I just mention that I love the small, sleek, and square packaging? Such great lippies! :) 

I would love to hear about your warm weather makeup transitions! Do you do any de-cluttering, too? Have you tried these products from Laura Mercier? If not, be sure to check them out!

Warm Weather Update: Get Glowing for the Season with IT Cosmetics!

 Affiliate Link Press Sample

The warm weather is upon us? What better time to update your look with some gorgeous new cosmetics?!?! 

I am in the process of not only moving, but also purging through my makeup collection. With moving, I am downsizing and only adding items to the collection that I truely love. So, I am super excited to add these NEW goodies from IT Cosmetics: The Naturally Pretty Essentials Palette and the Sunshine in a Compact in Warmth. 
I adore neutrals palettes. Really. They are my jam. This IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials is totally a stand-out neutrals palette. It has a complete range of shades to create a complete look from light to dark. The cool and unique thing about this palette is that six of the shadows are matte but when you add the Transforming Hello Light shade, they transform into satin shades! So cool! It gives a beautiful effect and adds dimension to your look. 

The eyeshadows themselves are packed with skin-loving anti-aging ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, and real silk. IT Cosmetics is known for infusing skincare ingredients into their makeup products. Why not give yourself an anti-aging boost when you apply color cosmetics? It makes me want to use these products even more! 

Lets talk a bit more about these gorgeous shadows. Not only are they infused with skin-loving ingredients, but also they are beautiful and wear very well! The shadows are soft and blendable with saturated pigmentation. They can be worn on their own or transformed with the Transforming Hello Light topper shade. You can use the deeper colors wet as liner, too! The Transforming Hello Light shade can also be used as a highlighter as well. I like wearing it in the inner corner of my eyes.

Imagine: Matte silk beige
Wonder: Matte nude khaki
Dream: Matte desert sand
Passion: Matte nude taupe
Intrigue: Matte earthy sepia
Allure: Matte smoky gray
Transforming Hello Light™: Radiant pearl

What a beautiful palette! It is just beautiful to wear with my blue eyes. It really makes them pop! :) 
IT Cosmetics | Sunshine in a Compact Vitality Anti-Aging Matte Bronzer:
This brand-NEW from IT Cosmetics is gorgeous! Adding a dusting of this matte bronzer to key areas of my face and neck is an awesome way to get my Summer "color" as well as to contour my face. The bronzer is matte. However, it does have IT Cosmetics' "drops of light" technology which brings radiance and glow to your face without adding shimmer. The texture of this powder is super soft and silky. It is very easy to work with and blend. 

Like all IT Cosmetics makeup, Sunshine in a Compact is infused with skin-loving anti-aging ingredients to give your skin that extra anti-aging boost every time you apply it! This powder doesn't settle into fine lines. In fact, it was formulated to help blur the look of lines and pores. This powder is talc-free and contains ingredients like hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, silk, and antioxidants. Not to mention: the color is gorgeous!!! 

What are your newest makeup loves for late Spring/early Summer?
