10 Beauty Products I Couldn’t Live Without

Monday, April 10, 2017

Happy Monday, everyone! The weather is supposed to be beautiful today and tomorrow and I’m soo excited! I’m so sick of this winter weather lol. Not to mention it takes a toll on my skin! For today’s post, I rounded up my 10 beauty products I couldn’t live without in no specific order!

It’s a 10 Keratin hair leave-in: I recently bought this at Ulta not researching any reviews before and oh my gosh I love this stuff. I put it in when my hair is damp before I brush it and it makes my hair feel so soft and thicker. Bleaching my hair with blonde highlights for 6 years definitely killed my hair and this stuff finally made a difference.

Cetaphil moisturizing cream: I’ve been using this cream forever and it never fails! I lotion my whole body with it everyday when I get out of the shower. I have very sensitive skin so I love that there is no added scents or colors, just plain and works!

Redken Blonde Idol Purple Conditioner: I bought this conditioner from my hair dresser when I added ashy balyage to my hair last summer. Although it is pricey, I love it for when my hair needs that ashy boost because you can choose what level you want the purple to be (1 being almost no purple, 10 being completely purple). Great for blondes!

Marc Jacobs Crayon Eyeliner: After years and years of trying to find the right eyeliner, I purchased the full size of this after receiving as my birthday gift from Sephora last year. I love how it stays put, doesn’t bleed, and doesn’t fade throughout the day! These are all things that I had trouble with when I used to wear the Urban Decay eyeliner, which gets such great reviews.

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: If you don’t already own this mascara, you need to! I have very short eyelashes so this stuff is my best friend. I use it every single day! It makes your eyelashes look very full and does not clump them together, so it’s a no brainer. It looks best on me when I use some sort of eyelash primer before.

Kat Von D contour palette: I’ve used this palette everyday for years and it is by far my favorite for contouring. It’s perfect for when my skin tone changes in the winter so I can easily just go to the next lighter color. 

Rodan and Fields Unblemish Regimen Face Wash: I wrote a whole post about this stuff here and if you struggle with acne then YOU NEED THIS. It is seriously what made my acne go away and never come back.

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation: As I said before, I struggled a lot with acne and that has resulted in lots of acne scars that just won’t go away. Thanks to this stuff, I don’t have to worry about it! I have tried endless foundations and this is my favorite because of how buildable it is. It also doesn’t make me look orange and has lasted me a long time. 

Urban Decay 24/7 Lipliner in Liar: I have to thank the employee at Sephora that helped me one day for this because it is something I never would have bought if it wasn’t recommend to me! I was looking at the Stila lipstick I’m mentioning below and she immediately brought me this lipliner to go with it. They compliment each other so well and I wear this combo everyday.

Stila Stay All Day Lipstick in Coquille: My favorite lipstick of all time! The quality is amazing for a matte lipstick. I often stay away from mattes because of how dry they make my lips look but not this one! It is super creamy and a great formula. I love this color and will be buying more colors in the future!

  2. as a previous blonde asian, i can totally agree that the purple shampoo is a godsend. yes, its expensive but i only used it once a week. I learned the hard way that if you use it too much your hair turns purple.. i mean, it wasn't a bad thing because it looked adorable LOL
