My Beauty Favorites — January 1-7 2018

I hope your new year is going well so far!  So far this year I have signed up to a gym (yuck!), started a skincare project pan and decluttered lots of makeup!  I’m trying to organize my large stash and get fit.  Oh and read more.  LOL!  We’ll see what happens!

My faves this week include skincare to brighten dull winter skin and natural eye makeup for a bold eye:

KORRES Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser ($28 USD) — Brightening exfoliating cleanser powered by wild rose oil to improve skin’s overall radiance and texture. This cleanser exfoliates skin naturally using a dual-action process to uncover even, luminous skin.

KORRES Wild Rose Smoothie Brightening Priming Moisturiser ($45 USD) — A lightweight, silicone-free priming moisturizer infused with super C, nature’s most powerful form of vitamin C.

What I think:  First, the fragrance of these are so nice.  They smell lightly of fresh roses, not a synthetic smell. The exfoliating cleanser really sloughs off the rough skin revealing soft and smooth skin.  Plus it is gentle enough to use on my sensitive skin.  The priming moisturizer does double duty as it hydrates and smooths my skin, getting it ready for makeup.  I love that both of these are natural and help brighten my skin.

Purchase at Sephora and other fine beauty stores

Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow Triple in Soft Kiss ($30 USD) — From elegant to edgy, these silky, richly-pigmented, long-lasting and easily blended eye shadows can create any look. Use them wet or dry; they’re gentle and safe for sensitive eyes.

Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Blue Hour ($22 USD) — Enhance the color and shape of your eye with our light-diffusing, highly-pigmented pressed eye shadow. Easily blended, it glides on wet or dry and stays crease-free. Safe for sensitive eyes.

Jane Irdale Mystikol Powdered Eyeliner in Onyx ($24 USD) — Create the sexy look you love with new improved Mystikol Powdered Eyeliners! The built-in brush makes a perfect line or smudged-out smoky eye. The powder/cream formula makes a shadow that won’t fade, crease or smear.

What I think:  Dramatic eye looks are easy with these gorgeous, natural products. The shadow triples and singles come in tons of different shades, so you can create the perfect look for you.  They are very smooth and well pigmented, too.

I also LOVE the Mystikol eyeliner.  I have this in a few shades and I love how easy it is to use.  It glides on so easy and the brush can help draw thick or thin lines.  It lasts all day, too.

  1. Thank you for the post. I wear all natural makeups so I am always looking for reviews. I have never tried Jane Irededale before. Are the eyeshadows mineral based? I have super sensitive eyes. I use Gabriel Cosmetics & Elegant Minerals.
