As the title says this post is all about products that I love to use over and over again! I spend my hard-earned money on various products and sometimes (more often than not actually..) they don't work out for me or they don't work enough! However, the few products that do work out for me I treasure and I just wanted to share that with you all today! So here we go!~
I adore the NYX Micro Brow Pencil (Espresso is my color!)! It's meant to be a dupe of the Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil (which I have used before and loved, but it was really pricey :s) and I think it delivers quite well! I've tried their brow pomade (which is also meant to be a dupe of Anastasia's pomade, again which I have used and liked well enough!) but I very much prefer this pencil! It's around $10 and lasts a pretty long while with daily use! I normally get my pencils from Ulta when they're in stock and they usually have a buy 1 get one 50% off promotion going on! I've repurchased this like 4-5 times already so I've used it for a while and I highly recommend this :>!
If there's one thing I love about makeup it's definitely eyeliner! I've gone from kohl pencils (ugh I cringe remembering my dull, round eyeliner ends) in high school to gel pomades (wonderful for a while but I've grown out of these) to felt liquid tip liners! I find with practice you can learn how to use felt tip liners with ease and I recommend the L'oreal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid Eyeliner and Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner! I don't really have a preference for one over the other but I did find the L'oreal one noticeably darker than the Maybelline! They are very affordable (neither one is over $10) but they aren't water proof! I found them to last a few hours at most, but after that they gave me raccoon eyes (especially when I wore foundation) which I found embarrassing! By my best friend's recommendation I've started using the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and it certainly lasts for a long time without drifting (though it's pretty pricey in comparison to these!)
These Epielle face wipes are one of my absolute favorites and range from $1 (for the 30 pack) and $2-2.50 (for the 60 pack). I get them from my local Big Lots and buy them at least 10 at a time when I start running low! I use them to take off all my makeup, before I use my Clarisonic, or if I just feel like my face needs a quick clean! I recommend trying these out if you have a store nearby that carries them, because the prices online....are ridiculous.
These two items aren't really cheap at all, but I don't mind paying for what works on my skin! I've spoken about both of these products in my Clarisonic Mia review and I definitely recommend them for anyone curious! The Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser came with my Clarisonic Mia and I love the clean feeling it gives my skin when I use it! The Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator works well for my dry combination skin!! I took the skin quiz on the Clinique site and they recommended this moisturizer for me and I've been using it for months now~ I find that if I use too much my face becomes something like that of an oil spill and if I use too little my face dries up painfully :< and since it's an open jar it's hard to get the amount I need all the time, but I've gotten a bit better at it! The cleanser is $25 and the moisturizer is $39 for the 50 ml jar (which lasts for MONTHS).
I love these eyelashes! I got them originally at the suggestion of a friend on Twitter (thank you Nao, my love!!) and I'm wearing them in the sidebar image on my blog :>! I love the tapered ends on these lashes because when I cut them they can be either for my right or left eye and they're not expensive at all! I have at least 3 back up packs ready for when I run out on the one I'm on now :>!
These lashes were bought on a whim when I wanted to try out more natural, everyday lashes for my small eyes and these 100% fit the bill! They're cheap, fluffy and absolutely wonderful to work with! I loved that the band was clear and thin because it didn't really mess with my sensitive eyes and they looked really adorable on! I would wear these everyday if I had the patience to and I already have 2 back up packs for when I use up the first :>!
I hope you enjoyed this post! I love these products so much I thought sharing them could help someone else out as well! If you have an comments or questions leave the below, my ask.fm, or Twitter!
