Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks (press sample)
Absolutely fabulous formula. I love Anarchy (fuchsia pink), Obsessed (bright candy type pink) and Native (pretty soft neutral pink). See my review. Vegan.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (press sample, repurchased)
After lots of searching, I’ve found the mascara formula that works the best for me. It doesn’t flake off in my contacts. It builds up my lashes and makes them look great, without ever risking spidery clumps. See my review.
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
I love this when I really want my eyeshadows to have that extra oomph! It’s fabulous for duochromes, glitters, and anything else that needs a sticky base. See my review and my Best Ways to Apply Loose Eyeshadow. Vegan.
Darling Girl Glitter Glue
I really like the texture of this but I have problems with the packaging allowing too much product to come out at one time. It gets an honorary mention because the formula is excellent.
Glass Nail Files (press sample)
These can come from a variety of places. I have KBShimmer and Cult Nails glass files and they’ve made a world of difference with my nails. Glass nail files aren’t as harsh on your nails as metal or sandpaper. They help to minimize chipping, peeling and help to seal your nails. They’re easy to clean and they are supposed to last forever. Vegan.
Cult Nails Get It On Base Coat
Love this stuff! Before this, I preferred Orly Bonder. It really works well with my nails. Vegan.
KBShimmer Clearly On Top Top Coat (press sample)
It’s a quick drying top coat that works well with glitters or cremes.
Cult Nails Nevermore
This is my perfect one coat black. I’ve repurchased this and gifted it to people. Ray likes to borrow it from me, too. It’s great for nail art, to wear on its own, for stamping etc. See my review. Vegan.
DermOrganic Leave-in Shine Therapy (press sample, repurchased)
This product is made with argan oil. It protects from heat if you blow dry or flat iron your hair. It speeds up dry time if you blow dry. It makes your hair feel soft and it smells soooooo good. See my review. Vegan.
Paula’s Choice RESIST Super Antioxidant Serum
I love using this serum on its own. I’ve also mixed it in with eye creams and daytime moisturizers with SPF if I’ve needed more moisture. I typically use it underneath a night cream. See my review.
Paula’s Choice RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator
This is my night cream of choice and I love the ingredients in it because it has lots of Vitamin C. It’s a nice anti-aging moisturizer without retinol. See my review.
Supergoop! SPF 35+ Save Face Oil-Free AM Moisturizer
It’s made with Vitamin E, Blueberry extract, and has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. I work from home and sit next to my sliding glass doors to be able to enjoy the view outside daily, so I always feel it’s important for me to have on SPF to protect my skin. See my review.
Supergoop! SPF 30 MintFusion Lip Balm
I’m quite sure the freckles by my lips are from not having lip balm with SPF when I was younger. I wish I had known to look for it then! I’ve got at least 2 tubes of this stuff in my house at any given time – 1 in my purse, 1 on my night stand. I also like to keep one in my studio and one in the living room.
Paula’s Choice Gentle Touch Makeup Remover
It’s great at removing my stubborn mascaras and eyeliner, without causing me to irritate my skin or trigger a reaction.
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighting Powder Duo
It’s my all time favorite highlighter for the perfect sheen it gives my skin. I usually swirl it together and highlight my cheeks. I’ve been known to use it to highlight my browbone and at the inner corners of my eyes too. See my review.
Wayne Goss Makeup Brushes
I’m glad I gave these brushes a chance and picked up the entire set. The eye brushes have been a game changer for me and I feel like they’ve helped me improve my makeup skills. They make it so much easier to blend. The 5, 6 and 8 brushes are must haves for me. I also love the 7, 4, and 3. The 1 and 2 are my least used brushes from the set. See my review.
NARS Black Valley Eye Paint
I purchased this at the Makeup Show Orlando. I already knew I would love the formula. I usually use it on my waterline because it stays put longer than anything else that I’ve tried. See more here.
NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder
This has been a fabulous product for me and I feel like I’ve barely dented the container that I have. I’m glad that I chose loose over pressed. I’m also glad that I started using the powder puff to apply it instead of a brush as I feel like the results are much better. See my review.
Silk Naturals Flattery Illuminating Powder
I love this powder and I’m so glad that it’s still around at Silk Naturals. It’s an illuminating powder with just a hint of pink, gold and blue. It helps to perk up a dull complexion and adds just a little bit of shimmer. I think it works especially well under the eyes and on the cheekbones but you can use it all over, too. Vegan.
