Happy new year! I try a lot of skincare, makeup, hair care etc. each year. I am now in my 5th year of my fabulous blog (coming up to my 1000th post! Giveaway coming sometime this month — stay tuned!). Sometimes, my face takes all of the different creams and cosmetics well, but I am broken out now. I know, could be post-holiday stress!
So looking towards 2014, I would like to keep it simple, with a few great new products and a fresh look. Here are some of the items that I’m trying this week. Here’s to a clear face, shiny hair and a soft, fresh look for 2014!
Bioré Makeup Removing Towelettes ($7.99 USD): Dissolve away all makeup, dirt, grime and other environmental impurities. Developed with luxuriously soft cotton, the powerfully conditioning formula never leaves behind a greasy residue—meaning no rinse required.
What I think: I have been using these nightly to remove my makeup and cleanse my skin. I love the fresh scent and they leave my skin clean, but not dried out.
Available at drugstores and mass market merchandisers. Learn more at www.biore.com/en-US.
Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 20 ($12.49 USD) — Neutrogena Healthy Skin® liquid makeup takes over where your skin care leaves off. Silky-light coverage glides on for a perfectly natural look, while the exclusive blend plus Broad Spectrum SPF 20 work together to visibly improve skin’s luminosity, tone, and texture.
- Flawless coverage, lightweight, silky formula
- Exclusive blend of antioxidants and Broad Spectrum SPF 20
- Maintains skin’s young and healthy look
- Available in 12 new shades
What I think: This foundation feels so natural on! It gives light to medium coverage and I love that it is good for my skin! With twelve shades, its easy to get a great match.
Available at www.neutrogena.com and drugstores near you.
beautyADDICTS Lip Addiction ($17 USD) — A luxurious, full-coverage high-shine lip glaze that provides intense, opulent color while nourishing lips with vitamins and plumping lips with peptides. Available in 8 shades as shown above.
What I think: I have this in Naked, the nude shade 4th from the left and the red called Hollywood. They are full coverage, and feel great on! Not sticky at all!
Available at www.beautyaddicts.com.
beautyAddicts GlimmerSHEERS ($28 USD) — Ultimate duo designed to highlight and luminize eyes, face and cheeks. Unique formulas in complementary shades: Glimmer – a soft focus luminizing luster for a sun-kissed, elegant sheen. Sheer – a crystal clear balm that hydrates and enhances glowing skin.
What I think: This is a cool product! I have it in Glow, which is a purplish hue. This makes a great eye shadow and I love to put the clear balm on the top of my cheeks for a little shine.
Available at www.beautyaddicts.com.
Sensai 38°C Mascara ($32 USD) — Sensai promises this mascara will resist tears of holiday laughter and watery eyes from gusty winds! The 38°Cstands for 38 degrees Celsius, as it’s the temperature of water required to melt the mascara off your lashes.
What I think: This is a great waterproof mascara! It stays on all day and is buildable so you can have a more natural look, or go glam with lots of volume! This has become my everyday mascara.
Don’t forget healthy hair in 2014! To keep it soft and frizz-free, try Mark Hill Defrizz-ilicious Magic Drops Rescue and Repair Treatment ($11.99 USD, 50ml) — This magic repair treatment is filled with Micro Wheat Proteins & Keravis to help protect, strengthen and restructure damaged and dry hair.
What I think: I put a few drops of this treatment in my damp hair before styling. It makes my hair so soft. Then I use a bit more on my dry hair to keep the flyaways down and to make it very shiny. Love!
Available at Walgreens stores and online.
