My Beauty Favorites — Week of February 8-14, 2016

I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! My husband and I went out to dinner (without kids).  It was really nice!

Last week I was loving new makeup that I was sent for my honest review.  I tried two new (to me) brands.  Wander Beauty and a German cosmetics company, Sante.  Both have some amazing products that I LOVE:

Wander Beauty Flash Focus Hydrating Foundation Stick ($40 USD) — Achieve a picture perfect complexion with this hydrating formula. This creamy foundation stick glides onto skin as a lightweight, conditioning cream for flawless coverage. Coconut oil, sodium hyaluronate and antioxidant vitamins help deliver effective, long-lasting emolliency and protection against dryness. Applies effortlessly and blends seamlessly. Skin is left looking youthful, natural and even. 

Wander Beauty Up Close Kiss Lipstick ($24 USD) — A smooth and creamy coconut oil and vitamin infused formula that glides effortlessly and delivers rich, long-lasting color.  The colors available are Spice and Rose.

What I think: I was so excited to try the foundation stick!  I received it in Light, and that matches my skin perfectly.  Looking at it in the photo, I thought it would have a thicker consistency like a concealer.  But, it is very creamy and glides right one.  It covers well, and I can add more to build coverage.  I use their Wander Cushion to blend.  Its a reusable sponge and is easy to blend with.

I received the lipstick in Spice.  I usually wear lighter colors, but I liked it.  It’s something that I can wear out on a date with my husband!

Sante Coversticks ($15 USD) — Make dark circles around the eyes and small impurities disappear as if by magic. Cover small veins and moles in no time at all.

Sante Eyeshadow Trios 5 Gram ($20 USD) — Eyecatcher. From nude to glam. Eye shadow trio in complementary shades. For unforgettable moments. With organic jojoba and chamomile.

Sante Lip Duo Contour & Gloss ($17 USD) — Certified natural ingredients with pure colors of nature. One end a line and the next in a gloss stick.

What I think: The coverstick is very full coverage.  It is perfect for dark circles, red patches and blemishes. I love wearing under my foundation for extra coverage.

The eyeshadow palette I received was Aubergine, which includes a light pink and two purples.  It makes an awesome smoky eye, very colorful.

My favorite Sante products is the lip color.  I received the Nude 01 color, it’s a pinkish nude and it so pretty on.
