New year, new Sephora/Ulta order, am I right? My skin’s been a little crazy lately thanks to the wintry weather (cold temperatures and wind, mainly) so I’ve been testing a few new samples of moisturizers, face oils and cleansers to find the perfect one. In addition to that, I’ve found a few more new products I love lately- all explained below.
RevitaLash RevitaBrow Advanced | Acure 100% Certified Organic Moroccan Argan Oil | NYX Cosmetics Illuminator in “Ritualistic” | Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate | Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red Lipstick
I was sent this product along with a tinted brow gel and have been using it nightly for a month or so now. It’s a brow conditioner that uses the power of peptides and botanicals for strengthening, conditioning and nourishing natural eyebrows. I’ve been letting my own grow out for the past year, and this product helps keep them strong and growing. Here’s to full brows!
I was excited to receive this product since I rarely use facial oils. However, with winter in full swing, my skin needs a little something extra, and this oil is the perfect one to try. This oil is rich in Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and proteins. It helps fight lines, repair imperfections, minimize scars + stretch marks; all while restoring texture, elasticity and tone. It easily absorbs and isn’t heavy or thick (thankfully!) I’ve been applying it to my face, neck and cuticles after each shower for the past few weeks.
I’ve tried a lot of highlighters and usually prefer a creamy stick or liquid consistency, but this powder version works pretty well, too. I apply it with a small fluffy brush down the center of my nose and over the top of my cheekbones for a subtle glow.
I don’t often use products made to give you “youthful-looking skin”, since I’m only in my 20’s and look like a 16-year-old already, but this has been the exception. I apply this serum right after showering as a base and then add a moisturizer on top- the serum works to enhance the products you apply afterwords. Here’s to hoping it magically prevents wrinkles, too!
I only wear red lipstick on fancy occasions (I worry people at work would give me funny looks), so I try not to buy too many bright shades. However, this red is worth every penny. The formula is creamy but not shiny, smells great (weird, I know, but it matters to me), and is universally flattering.
