My Favorite Products

















Happy Friday! I wanted to share with all of you my favorite beauty products. I seriously can't live without ANY of these. They are amazing and I am going to tell you why I love each and every one of them. 

1) T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer - This hairdryer is ahhhhhhhmazing. I got it as a Christmas gift this year from my husband. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it because of the hefty price tag but the more I used it the more I fell in love with it. The reason I love it so much is because it isn't harmful for your hair. After I use most hair dryers my hair feels very damaged and burnt. This hair dryer doesn't do that at all. It leaves my hair feeling very soft and it feels like I let my hair air dry. It also reduces my drying time. I wouldn't say that it reduces my drying time drastically but I have definitely noticed a little difference. Most of all, this hair dryer is great protection for your hair. You definitely don't have to worry about damaging your hair at all with this and to me, that's what makes it worth the price. 

2) M.A.C. Nutcracker Sweet Nude Mini Lipstick Kit - I also got this little lipstick set around Christmas time and I have loved it ever since. The colors in it are absolutely beautiful. They all have a nude tint but they are all very different. I wear them all the time. I also have a huge obsession with M.A.C. lipstick. If all of you could see my vanity drawer full of lipstick you would laugh so hard. Does anyone else have this problem?? I really don't think a girl could ever have too much lipstick. ;) 

3) T3 Whirl Trio Interchangeable Styling Wand - Okay, so I could go on and on all day about how much I love this wand. This is another thing that I was very hesitant to buy when I saw the price tag but trust me, IT IS WORTH EVERY PENNY. It is the best wand I have ever used in my entire life. It comes with 3 interchangeable barrels. I use the one inch straight barrel all the time. It is what I use in most of my pictures that you see. It creates the best defined waves. I also like to use the one and a fourth inch to a third inch barrel. It gives my curls a more tousled look. I haven't used the one and a half inch barrel yet but I can't wait to use it. From what I have heard, it creates full body waves. I also bought the curling iron attachment that goes with this wand. I switch between curling my hair with a wand and curling my hair with a curling iron. I love the curls that I get from both of them equally but they are very different. The wand definitely produces more defined curls and the curling iron creates more natural looking curls where the curl is more towards the end of my hair. I will give a tutorial some day on how I curl my hair with both. What I love about this wand the most is how quickly it gets hot. You can literally start using it within 3 seconds. Also, the waves stay ALL DAY. Sometimes I can go 3 full days with the same curls and my hair still looks great. I couldn't do that with any other wands that I have used. If you are on the fence about buying this wand, trust me and buy it. You will not regret it!!!! It is my favorite purchase by far. 

4) Naked3 Urban Decay Eye Palette - Out of all of the Naked eye palettes, this one is my favorite. I like neutral eye colors on my eyes. I hardly ever use anything else. This palette has the perfect amount of nudes and has a lot of different options to use. The eye shadow goes on my eyelids easily and stays all day. I use this palette every single day. I love it!

5) Benefit Cosmetics Roller Lash Curling & Lifting Mascara - I recently went into Sephora looking for a new mascara. I didn't love some of the ones that I had been using. A sales associate pointed me to this one and I'm obsessed! I love the applicator. It perfectly divides your lashes into perfect little sections and gives that "false lashes" look. I also love how it curves my eyelashes upwards. This mascara doesn't bleed at all and lasts all day. I will definitely keep buying this one. 

6) NARS Blush in Orgasm - If any of you are looking for the perfect blush color, THIS IS IT. This orgasm color is the perfect blush color hands down for any color skin tone. A lot of my friends use it as well. It gives your cheeks the perfect amount of that pinky/nude color that everyone is looking for. It also has a tiny bit of shimmer which I love. I have been using it for years. I can't say enough good things. 

7) Make Up For Ever Duo Mat Powder Foundation - So I have tried many, many different powders and this one by Make Up For Ever is by far the best that I have ever used. I tend to have oily skin, especially in my T-Zone area and this powder is amazing for hiding all of that. The best part about this powder is that your skin will literally look air brushed. I get compliments on my skin all the time and always having people asking me what makeup I use. This is my secret! The brush that I linked above is a must have with it. The brush also helps give that airbrush look. I've gotten some of my friends hooked on both of these things. Ever since I started using this powder, I have never tried anything else. I am now an avid buyer of Make Up For Ever. It is a little pricey but worth every penny. 

8) Oribe Royal Blowout Heat Styling Spray - A girl from work recently told me about this Oribe product. She swore by it and of course me being the hair product addict that I am, I had to try it immediately. It is AMAZING. Not only does it smell great, but it makes your hair so smooth and significantly reduces drying time. After I use this product, my hair feels the healthiest it has ever felt. Sometimes it is so smooth that I feel like I don't even need to straighten it, which is very rare for me. I spray this in my damp hair right before I start to blow dry. This product is also pricey but I do feel like it is worth it. Now that I have started using it, I don't know if I could live without it. Oribe has a huge line of hair products and I also want to try some of their other stuff. I have heard great things! If I try anything else and love it I will definitely let you guys know. 

9) Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer - I have been using this hair product for yearsssss. Bumble and Bumble makes a great line of hair products and this is my favorite that they make. I mainly use it for protection against any heat tools that I use such as hair dryers, wands, curling irons, and straighteners. It is basically a heat protectant spray for your hair. I use it every single day right after I get out of the shower. I spray this on my damp hair first and then spray the Oribe Royal Blowout afterwards, right before I start to dry my hair. 

10) Sebastian Shaper Hairspray - This is my favorite hairspray of all time and trust me, I have tried A LOT. What I love most about this hairspray is how light it is. I don't like for my hair to feel like it has a lot of hairspray in it or for it to feel really sticky after I curl it The worst is when you use hair spray and your curls look HARD. I can't stand that. This hairspray doesn't do any of that. It is very light and brushable. It leaves your curls looking very natural and you can't even tell that you put hairspray in  but it does hold very well. Depending on how I curl my hair (with a wand or a curling iron), I like to brush my curls out with my fingers or with a brush. This hairspray allows me to do that easily. I section my hair when I curl it and spray a little bit of this hairspray on each section immediately after I curl it. Once I am done curling my whole head, I will spray a little more all over my entire head. This hairspray will last me all day and night. If you are someone who likes a little more hold, they also make this hairspray a little stronger. It's called "Sebastian Shaper Hairspray Plus". I have also used that one before and love it as well!

I hope you all enjoyed reading about my favorite beauty products. If you would like to see any makeup or hair tutorials please let me know. I would be glad to do some. Please let me know if you have any questions about any of these products and I will answer your questions right away. I hope you all have a great weekend!!!  

XOXO
