After hopping around in the fashion industry, I've found my home contributing to various fashion, beauty, and lifestyle blogs. I'm obsessed with finding the latest and greatest- whether it's new beauty finds or the hottest new place to try in NYC- I love it all!
These easy to use pre-soaked pads are perfect for chemical exfoliation. Although they are labeled as daily pads, most users recommend only using 2-3 nights a week. At $88 for a pack of 35, this will help distribute the cost more. The potent pads are formulated to resurrect radiance and diminish the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture, fine lines, and enlarged pores, in addition, most reviews say these peels also helped with any adult-onset acne they had experienced.
Nicknamed the best "Lipstick for People who are Intimidated by Lipstick", Glossier's lip color sets out to nail the perfect just-blotted lipstick minus the blotting. In just 6 shades, these lipsticks deliver a dialed-down color perfect for everyday wear. Glossier's website describes it as "diffused, matte goodness " I'm partial to the color Zip- a sheer poppy red that pulls my look together without the starkness of a bright red lipstick, but at just $18 each I'm ready to add another favorite.
I never knew my eyelashes could reach these heights before I was turned onto Lash Slick. True to Glossier's ethos, this mascara is sort of a "no make-up make-up" so if you're into a heavier lash this probably isn't for you. If you are looking for an everyday mascara that will pull your lashes to new heights- Lash Slick is for you. The rubber brush elongates your lashes and with two coats on each eye, I'm happy with the length and amount of mascara. At $16 a tube, I can say it's so worth it!
If you've been on the search for pillow soft lips- look no further. This Laneige lip mask has gotten rave reviews and for good reason. Running at about $20 a pot (on Amazon it's only $12!) it might seem like a lot of money for a lip product but a little definitely goes a long way. I smear a little on my lips (it's buttery soft and smells yummy) and wake up with the softest and plushiest lips possible. Because it's clear, I'll even throw on during the day when my lips are feeling extra dry.
If you love browsing the beauty counter at Macy's this is the perfect subscription box for you. The monthly box (just $15) includes 5 deluxe beauty samples from the best brands, a makeup pouch, a bonus gift, and a $5 coupon to use online or in stores- perfect to shop the full-sized version of any sample! They're known for a variety of samples of the higher-end brands and their website links all the full-sized products for easy shopping of the samples you loved.
Your favorite retailer has now released an assortment of beauty boxes. They feature collabs with influencers (think Monday Swimwear's Tash Oakley and Summer Fridays' Marianna Hewitt), and although these boxes run at a higher price point (from $100-$175) their value is much higher. Each box is targeted from a "Let's Get Away" travel focused box to Tash Oakley's "Natural Beauty" box. They come with a considerable amount of products each containing anywhere from 7-11 samples.
At only $7 a pop, Target's beauty box is debatably one of the cheapest available to try. They have about 5 to choose from each month- from boxes highlighting natural ingredients to skin care focused boxes. They each feature a sample of hair, bath, and body products and are all available to shop at Target. This is perfect to sample out any products
before you buy and learn about amazing products at affordable prices.
This game-changing facial serum protects your skin against UVA and UVB rays. Skip the white streaks and oily texture of regular sunscreen and add sun drops into your moisturizer or foundation for a seamless finish. It still provides intensive SPF 50 broad-spectrum protection which should be an everyday addition to your skincare routine. At $145 a pop, it is more of a splurge but you'll never regret investing in a powerful anti-aging property.
The latest upgrade to Makeup Forever's cult favorite HD concealer is self-setting technology. This under $30 cover-up means you can skip the powder thanks to the unique amino-acid coated pigments. Its creamy coverage conforms to your skin and stays there for up to 12 hours- crease free! It features medium, buildable coverage. They also added to the range for 22 shades total to ensure a perfect match.
This clay mask has over 16,000 reviews (average 4.4/5) on Amazon and countless articles dedicated to the brilliance of it- and for $11 brilliance is an understatement! This 5-20 minute facial works as a vacuum for your pores using 100% natural calcium bentonite clay.
It draws out all the impurities in your skin dubbing it 'the world's most powerful facial'. Mix the loose powder with apple cider vinegar for a stronger concoction or with water for more sensitive skin.
