Monthly Beauty Buys


Hey everyone! It’s Friday again, yay! I’m so excited to just be home this weekend. Our weekends pretty full already, but I am hoping we have a little down time too.

Anyways, just incase you find yourself in the beauty department this weekend, here are a few of my favorites that I’ve picked up recently!

Sephora Collection Long Lasting Kohl Pencil

This eyeliner was a life savior while I was in Vegas. I had forgotten mine, so I ran to the Sephora there, and decided to try their eye liner collection because, well, to be honest, it was cheap & I was not wanting to spend very much.  But ya’ll, this eyeliner is awesome. It seriously last all day & doesn’t smudge. It also applies easily, buttt just know, I only put mascara under my eyelids, never on top.

CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir

You guyssssss. This stuff is amazing for when you’re tired / hungover /  or needing a little wake-me-up.  You spray it right over your face before applying moisturizer & then it immediately gives your face radiance. It also smells just like an aroma therapy. No joke, my friend sprayed it all over her face at my house one morning after a long night of drinking, and afterwards she just looks over at me and goes “woah, that stuff works!” & I’m over here like “yeah, I know ;)”. 


Here’s the deal, I love this primer so much, that I almost did an entire post only on it. That’s how much I love it. For the past few years I have been using the Stilla Photo Finish Primer, but it really was lacking something & my make up wasn’t lasting all day. So when I finally ran out,  I went to Nordstrom’s looking for advice, when the sweetest sales lady with the most beautiful glowing skin dragged me to Laura Mercier to show me what she uses. This Laura Mercier Primer is truly beautiful!  Is that weird to say? Oh well, because it is. As soon as I put it on, my skin is glowing. I even sometimes wear it on its own  because it looks so nice.

YSL Stain Lipgloss

YSL lip anything, is my thing. It’s pretty much all I wear, which is why I wanted to try this one. I wish I would have chosen a warmer shade (This one is Dangerous Pink!), but what I really like about this lip gloss is that it’s a stain, but it doesn’t dry out my lips! It’s a glossy stain! I still love the color, but I may be making my way back to the YSL counter to look for another shade this weekend!

‘Diorshow’ Fusion Mono Eyeshadow

Ah, bae. I understand that spending over $30 for eye shadow is ridiclous, but this little jar has lasted me over a year, and I wear it every day. The only reason I had to buy a new one, is because I dropped mine and the glass shattered. I’ve gotten so many compliments from strangers on this eye shadow because it gives the most radiant shimmer to your eye lids. && once again, it’s another that last all day!

Have a great weekend!
