My Beauty Favorites — Week of September 5-11, 2016

Hi all! This is the second week in a row that I’m late on my favorites post!  I’ve been busy and lazy — but I’m glad I’m getting it out!

It has been cooling down a bit in Kansas City, which is so nice.  It’s still in low 80’s high 70’s, but still — so much better that high 90’s!

This week I have been loving a hydrating mask, frizz-controlling shampoo and conditioner, and an empty palette that can be filled with pans of makeup to make your perfect palette!

Philosophy when hope is not enough replenishing leave-on gel-oil mask ($35 MSRP) — transform dry skin with deep, lasting moisture. our intensely hydrating gel-oil formula leaves depleted skin feeling nourished and comfortable, with a smoothed texture that appears naturally radiant and refreshed. 83% of women agreed skin felt supple, velvety soft and looked naturally luminous.

What I think: This is the perfect treatment to help restore summer skin and get it ready for the colder weather!  Just apply, leave on for 10 minutes and tissue off any excess product.  I then can leave it on and it soaks in and leaves my skin so soft!  I love using it overnight.  I wake up with glowing skin!

Z Palette Mirror Z Palette ($25 USD) — The patent-pending Mirror Z Palette not only has the see-through clear window, but also features a high quality, pull-out mirror that attaches magnetically to the inside clear window. Metal Stickers included: 16pcs (8pc Round, 8pc Square)

What I think: This is such a cool product.  To use this, find color makeup that is in separate pots, or in a palette where you only use one or two of the colors.  Then take it out of the pot, affix an included magnetic sticker and arrange in the palette.  Then you can take anywhere!

My only issue is that I haven’t been successful in depoting the couple of makeup pots I’ve tried (and I’ve followed directions). But I am going to keep trying because I have so much makeup I keep in drawers and bins.  I would love to arrange them in one palette so they will get used!
