What Are My New Beauty Faves?

Welcome to the first edition of my monthly favorite beauty products! I will do a post at the beginning of every month with a list of at least 5 new beauty products that I started using the previous month and fell in love with. Some of the products may have been previously reviewed on my blog throughout the month, so this can ensure you did not overlook any amazing products! I also think this is a cool way to introduce you to some products that you have never used or heard of, used and forgot about, or see that we have something in common because you use the same products as me! And there’s nothing better than that! So, without further ado, let’s start this list!

MAKE Face Gloss, $25

I have been raving about this product on my Instagram page and my blog since I was introduced to it in my November Birchbox. This product is so amazing! It is marketed as a highlighter. However, I use it as an all over face moisturizer and it really helps to keep my dry skin feeling fresh and moisturized. Click here to read an in depth review of this product.

Benefit Gimme Brow, $24

So, this product I have been sleeping on. It came as an added sample to a Sephora purchase a few months ago. I tried it once and never went back to use it until recently. I love how this product fills my brows in and makes them appear thicker. Click here to read my full review of this product.

Smith’s Rosebud Salve, $6

I use this as a lip balm and I love it. It keeps my lips moisturized for a good amount of time and I appreciate that. It can also be used as an all over body moisturizer…I haven’t used it for that purpose though. Click here to read my full review.

MBA Cosmetics Luxury Matte Lipstick in Salsa, $9.50

If you love a good red lip that is also matte, this is the one for you! It is a matte formula that is not in the least bit drying. It is also a true red. There’s no better combination for a lipstick than this. To read my full review of this lippie, click here.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Amande, $29

I do not wear concealer very often. Honestly, I only wear it when I know I will be taking pictures for something special or going out for a special event. That’s neither here nor there though. I absolutely love this concealer. The liquid formula and the doe foot wand make application very easy. The liquid formula is also very blendable. I use a knockoff of a beauty blender to accomplish this. Head over to this page to read my full review.

Benefit Gimme Brow or Take Them Away?

Thanksgiving is over. Black Friday is over. Back to reality tomorrow. Another Monday to conquer. But, I hope you all had a very enjoyable holiday weekend. To end the weekend and start the week on a positive not, I have prepared a little review for a product that I have been sleeping on. Let’s get into it…

A few months ago I received the Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel by Benefit Cosmetics in Medium/Deep Brown as a added on sample for a Sephora purchase, if I’m not mistaken. really don’t remember. Needless to say, it has been sitting in my makeup bag since I got it. I used it once when I opened the package and never used it again. Recently, I have noticed that my eyebrows have been a little on the thin side. Ughhh!! So, I set out to purchase a product to fill in my brows. I settled on a brow pomade by Ardell from Sally Beauty. I love it and I highly recommend it! However, it takes a little more time to apply than I would like for a product I want to use on a daily basis and that’s not what this post is about.

Re-enter Gimme Brow. I started using this product again and am trying to figure out what I have been doing with my life and why I only used it once! Lol! This product is EVERYTHING! It has a mascara like wand and you just brush it over your brows and VIOLA!, perfectly filled brows! Application is unbelievable easy! The brush even helps you to shape and arch your brows! The color stays all day without fading or running! Since this is only a sample size, I will be purchasing the full size product once I get low on this one…which will be very soon! It sells for $24 at Sephora. Click here to go to the product page.

 Have you tried this product before? Do you have any other recommendations for brow products? I’d love to know!
