This month’s beauty buys sum me up pretty well – simple and festive. I’ve revisited some old favourites and discovered new products that have become staples in my routine.
This is by far the best body scrub I have ever tried. Yes, it is pricier than most body scrubs, but nothing compares to the Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish. It has a sweet lemony scent that isn’t annoying like most others that I’ve tried and it leaves your skin so soft that I don’t even usually have to apply body lotion afterwards. Plus it gets the attention of my beau when I get out of the shower, in more ways than one.
I know I’m late to the party with these next two products from MAC, but if they are still this popular after all this time, I think they certainly qualify as cult products. I wanted to find a new red lipstick for the holidays and had heard so much about MAC’s Ruby Woo that I decided to give it a whirl. It’s a blue-based matte red that is just beautiful. I usually feel very awkward wearing a red lip during the day, but for some reason, not with this shade. It is a little drying since it’s a matte, but it’s nothing that a little lip balm can’t fix.
I’ve been on a quest to find the perfect shade to add brightness to my eyes without looking so made up. MAC’s Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Bare Study seemed to be exactly what I was looking for. A beautiful soft beige with a golden shimmer.
I’m on a constant quest for red nail polish. I was looking for a classic red, but most I found were more of a tomato red than the cherry red I wanted. My quest may have ended when I found Essie A-List. Not too dark, nor too light, it’s a beautiful creamy shade that can be worn all year.
BONUS! I have had a ridiculous number of Sephora points for the longest time. I finally found a perk that I was willing to spend my points on. This Tarte bronzing set is just the thing a girl needs when her skin hasn’t seen the sun in a few months. It includes a mini Park Ave Princess bronzer, Gifted volumizing mascara, Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanner, Brazilliance Skin Rejuvenating Maracuja Self Tanning Face Towelettes and Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment.
Are any of these products on your list of faves?
