January Beauty Buys

January 22, 2015


travel size foundation brush // Since I’m overhauling everything in my arsenal, I want to try out all the options. I’m starting small by purchasing sample and travel sizes before committing to the investment of a full-size product. This foundation brush from Sephora is super soft and blends beautifully. Plus, the smaller size makes it easy to keep with me during the day.

NARS blush in amour // For a long time I had my heart set on this shade, which has received rave reviews as flattering on every skin tone, but when I saw all the pretty colors lined up in the store, amour proved complimentary to my coloring. I love the potency of this blush and that it lasts all day long.

Olay Total Effects moisturizer //  I used to wear this moisturizer years ago and I don’t know why I ever strayed. After trying different brands, I found Olay Total Effects the most comfortable on my skin, which is either super dry or super oily. It keeps my skin balanced and adds a hint of color. It also smells amazing, which can make or break a beauty product for me.

Elizabeth and James Nirvana White // This perfume is light and sweet without being overbearing. I bought the rollerball because I like to control the amount of fragrance I wear at one time. This rollerball allows me to dab just a little on behind the ears before work so I’m not suffocating my co-workers. (There’s nothing worse than smelling like you’re still in the room 20 minutes after you’ve left). Plus, Nirvana Black is the brand’s musky counterpart, perfect for evening. The duo was designed to be layered to create a custom scent or worn alone, which I kind of love.
