5 New Favorite Products On My Radar

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.

Ever since I can remember; I have been a product queen.  My mother used to call me a Drugstore queen growing up.  I would wait until CVS or Walgreens had a makeup sale and go and buy the newest lipgloss, colored eyeliner and latest volume promising mascaras.  Then when Sephora came to town and Hard Candy eyeshadows took all my baby sitting money, I was officially hooked as a makeup junkie.  The funny thing is now, I really don’t wear that much makeup on a daily basis.  I am a firm believer though of always doing a quick swipe of mascara before you leave the house.  Always.

I love trying tons of new products but I am very picky about what is purchased in the true commitment full size.  I rarely repurchase anything except for my NYX concealer.  I have bought multiple tubes of that.  Here are a few favorite products that have taken center stage at this current time.Screen Shot 2015-11-04 at 9.55.58 PM

Your New Favorite Foundation

Makeup Forever HD Cover Stick FoundationI am not a huge Make Up For Ever lover, for some reason the pigments were never rich enough for me.  However, I stumbled on the best Sephora consultant and 10 minutes later, I have two of my new favorite products.  Make Up For Ever has just come out with a foundation stick and it is the ultimate multi tasker. It has a primer in it, so that step is eliminated.  It gives the most natural finish but is still full coverage.  Apply it a little heavier around your eyes and you won’t need your concealer anymore.  I apply it with this brush.  The best part, it photographs flawlessly.  I wore it for these pictures and I am so happy with its camera ability.  I highly suggest picking it up.  I am color 125 for a reference point.

Favorite Contouring Duo

Make Up Forever Pro Sculpting DuoYou can use it separately for contouring or swirl the two together for a quick all over dusting.  It gives the most natural flush without any glitter or shimmer.  I have been using this everyday and I’m hooked.  Find it here.

Overnight Keratin Like Treatment

Living Proof Night Cap If you remember from this post, I have been digging Living Proof products.  I have been using them for a few weeks now and this gem has risen to the top.  I have a lot of hair but it’s fine.  A lot of repairing type products really weigh it down.  You put two pumps of this in your wet hair and when you wake up in the morning, hello results.  My hair has volume, is shiny all the way down to the tips, and has a soft fullness to it.  It is the real deal.  You need a tiny bit of the product, that bottle should last you a long time.  Find it here.

Holiday Vampy Lip

Laura Mercier Paint WashMy new favorite dark fuchsia Fall lip color.  No lie, every single time I wear this color I get stopped by at least three people asking me for the name of it.  Non drying and fades gracefully without that dreaded outer ring lipliner look.  The color is fuchsia mauve.

Gel to Oil Cleanser

Borghese Gel to Oil CleanserOil cleansers are the rage right now.  For a good reason.  They deep clean without over drying your skin. My top fav is ultrabland from Lush but there is beeswax in it and I don’t like putting it near my lashes. This cleanser goes on smooth like a gel but then when you rub it in, it turns into an oil.  It washes off with water and leaves my skin baby soft smooth.  No new breakouts which usually always happens when I introduce anything new.  Find it here.

  1. Love that lip color, and it fades well too, must have!

  2. Lauren says:

    I really want to try the Makeup Forever products but they’re hard to get hold of in the UK. Luckily I have a tripped booked to the States next month! x


  3. Pinky says:

    I’ll have to try that hair product out, I need some damage control but I have fine hair too. The lipstick is such a pretty shade!

  4. I’ve never used a stink foundation, but how great is that for travelling!!! Also really loving that lip gloss color – so pretty! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  5. Jenn says:

    You are convincing me more and more about that Life Proof hair stuff. I think the vampy lip would look perfect on you!

  6. Joey says:

    OMG that stick foundation reminds me of high school! I think Cover girl was the one who had the foundation out in that blue tube? Anyway–loving your picks!

  7. Summer says:

    The fuchsia mauve lip colour looks nice ♥♥


  8. The first part of your post made me think of how my mom would ask me when I was in college why there were so many charges on her credit card (yes I was spoiled and my parents supported me) for CVS. Yeah, it’s because I was buying every type of makeup under the sun. Since I didn’t have any clue what to buy. That foundation stick sounds fab. When I finally learned about makeup, I bought this Chanel foundation stick that I used for years and loved. Then they discontinued it. :-( I don’t wear foundation much these days but I’ll be checking out that stick. That lipgloss is so pretty too. I love Laura Mercier. :-) Thank you so much for sharing lady and I hope that you have a lovely day!!!

    I can vouch for the LP Night Cap- that stuff is amaaaaaaazing! :)

    Le Stylo Rouge

  10. Christina says:

    I have that lip gloss and I LOVE the color. It’s so perfect for the holiday season!

  11. OMG, do you remember the Hard Candy nail polishes with the rings on them, circa 1995 and “Clueless” era? I spent all my babysitting money on those! Now, I’m not into products as much – just a great lipstick and mascara for me. But I’m trying to get more into hair products, since I know they make a huge difference and I have such long hair…

  12. I am in the market for a new foundation, so I’ll have to try out that stick. How do you apply it? That hair stuff sounds fantastic too! Thanks for sharing lady! xo

  13. Ooh I definitely want to try that foundation stick!! How perfect would it be for traveling, too!

  14. That lip color is gorgeous! I’ve been loving berry colors this fall but I’ll have to try a deep fuchsia! Going to have to try that Hydrology stuff too, sounds amazing! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  15. jillian says:

    that lip color looks beautiful! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  16. Christina says:

    I love that you try so many new things! If I find something I like I get lazy and stick with it. I found nyx last year and it was the greatest find – I don’t think I’ve ever found something I don’t like and you can’t beat their prices! I do love that lipgloss color – I need a few more fall/winter colors!

  17. Carly says:

    I should really check out that living proof product. I have a decent amount of hair, but it’s fine too. It gets greasy fast so I rarely use product. Off to Sephora I go!

  18. Rebecca Jo says:

    I want to try the hair product! I need all the help I can get on my hair.

  19. Rachel says:

    Love this product review! I have been eyeing this Laura Mercier lipgloss , in this color too! I have been loving dark fuchsia for fall, so glad to know it looks so great in person!

    xo, Rachel

  20. Jess says:

    I have similar hair – it’s fine but I have a lot, and I get the same problem sometimes. I hate when my hair is weighed down. I’ll have to try Living Proof.

  21. Amanda says:

    Good to know about the foundation stick. I’m always on the search for my holy grail foundation. The struggle is real. I’ve definitely had some bad luck with flashback from foundations. Yikes!

  22. Amanda says:

    That lip color is SO pretty! Thanks for the foundation stick rec – I need to look into that one.

  23. love the lip color- so pretty for fall!

  24. You’ll have to let us know about that foundation stick. All foundation sticks kind of freak me out, but that’s a personal thing. haha. However, I hear this one is amazing!

  25. I’ve never tried makeup forever and after this post I think I need to!

  26. A foundation stick sounds super handy! That would be fun to try. And I’m obsessed with that lip color! So pretty.

  27. Nadine says:

    That lip color is killer, I love it!!! I have got to get one of those airbrush brushes at Sephora. Someone used it on me once there and I loved the finish but I was in a hurry and trying to “be good” and just got the foundation.

  28. Lindsay says:

    You have me completely sold on the M4E foundation and bronzer/blush duo. Like I need to haul ass to Sephora to get my color matched right now!

  29. Nikki says:

    I’m always in the market for a new lipstick so I’ll definitely have to check this one out. So so important to find one that is long lasting!

  30. I’ve heard great things about that MUFE duo!

  31. Kristen says:

    hmmmm i have never tried the nyx concealer i don’t think. i’m always on the hunt for a new concealer, i bought the maybelline fit me one on the weekend. i’ve been looking for a contouring palette thingy, thanks for sharing!
