I’m a beauty product junkie. I am always trying new lotions and potions, and every now and then I get attached to certain products that become staples in my cosmetic bag. These are my 4 current must-haves:
Original BeautyBlender Sponge
This little pink sponge is so amazing, I can’t even remember how I applied foundation before I found this gem. It plumps up when it’s wet and gives a super flawless, natural, dewy finish. At $20 it’s a little on the pricey side, especially since it’s recommended that you change it every 3 months, but compared to other makeup sponges that I’ve used, it’s so worth it.
bareMinerals Pure Radiance All-Over Face Color
I absolutely love this loose highlighting powder from bareMinerals. It can be worn alone or over foundation. (I wear it over my foundation for a smooth radiant finish). It gives such a natural sun-kissed glow to my complexion. I can go on and on about the bareMinerals brand, but I will leave that for other posts. Just know that my face loves their products.
Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter
Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty is all the rage these days, so of course I had to sample at least one of her new products. I am in love with her Killawatt Highlighter (Girl Next Door/Chic Phreak). Even her highlighters are made with every complexion in mind. It gives my cheekbones a subtle, yet noticeable glow that is so flattering to my skin tone. I can’t wait to try her foundation.
Clinique Stay-Matte Universal Blotting Powder
I received the travel size version of this blotting powder in a Sephora gift pouch and haven’t stopped using it since. I have extremely oily skin, so I always have to be on the lookout for shine. The Stay-Matte powder absorbs the oil without disturbing my makeup and leaves my face looking fresh and shine free. The travel size is perfect for my cosmetic bag, and I never leave home without it.
