Three Beauty Products I'm Loving Lately

Before I rant and rave about three beauty products I'm absolutely loving lately, can we talk about how badly I need a manicure in this picture? Trust me, I realize how ironic it is that I'm dishing out beauty advice with nails looking like that but what can I say, it was one of those weeks.

Now that we got that out of the way...I have to share three fantastic finds with y'all that have become staples in my makeup bag. As many of you know, I don't discriminate when it comes to beauty products. I'm willing to spend good money on skin care products, but I also don't believe that higher price always equals higher quality. In some cases you can find beauty products at your local drugstore that work just as well, if not better, than ones at the department store. I have two products for you today to "save" on, and one to "splurge" on...

Too Faced Lip Injection Color Bomb - I'm loving the colored lip trend right now, but I'm not a big fan of cherry red, so I went in search of the perfect "berry" colored lipstick and found it. I love this product, it's a balm/lip stain/lip stick so it goes on smooth but doesn't dry out your lips or run. Bonus, it also has a lip plumping effect. If you don't like the tingly sensation that you get from lip plumping products I wouldn't recommend this, but I don't mind it.

Cover Girl Last Blast Volume Mascara - This is my absolute favorite mascara, it's better than anything you can find at the high end beauty stores. My lashes look long and voluminous, and for $7 you really can't beat it.

Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser Primer - I can't believe more people don't use this last product, it's a hidden gem! If you're a fan of the Smashbox Foto Finish Primer, then this Maybelline Baby Skin primer is for you. The consistency is identical to Smashbox, but for a third of the price. I love how smooth my makeup looks over this primer, and it seems to last just as long as any other product I've used. Quit wasting money on the more expensive versions and give baby skin a try, I think you'll love it!

The lip color I'm wearing in this picture ^ is the Too Faced Color Bomb in "Bigger Berry" and it's described as a "deep raspberry wine". You won't regret having this color in your makeup arsenal, I promise.

I am so glad there's another option for that primer out. I use the monistat anti chafing because it is also the same formula but it's not as cheap as that one!

Baby skin?! How have I never heard of this?! Baby lips is my favorite!

I want this color AND the other red color in that Too Faced Lip Tint. Can't wait to get them!

And I used to use the Lashblast until I met L'Oreal's False Fiber Lashes. I've never looked back! BUT, the Lashblast is a great alternative!

I love the chipped nail polish acknowledgement! It's been one of those weeks for me for about 2 weeks. Lol. I did quick touch ups just before running out the door when I had an event to go to. I look forward to getting a real mani and pedi this week!
