Happy Monday! Today's post is on my favorite beauty essentials I've discovered and have been using during the month of July. Some are old time favorites, but a lot of the beauty products I'll be sharing with you today you may have heard about before, but it's my first time trying and reviewing them. And because it's such a gloomy day out here in NYC, I had to bring in some colorful beauty essentials to brighten up this Monday! Let's get down to it...
The Ole Henriksen Sheer Transformation® Perfecting Moisturizer is an oil-free moisturizer, rich in antioxidants, to weightlessly hydrate, even tone, and smooth skin texture for a healthy-looking complexion.Transform the way you think about your moisturizer. Sheer Transformation Perfecting Moisturizer delivers weightless hydration and luminous perfection. With its whipped, silky texture, this best-selling oil-free moisturizer imparts essential moisture to the skin, even as it delivers radiance and improves the appearance of dark spots and discoloration. It is formulated with multi-fruit acids, plus licorice and pea extracts to help gently refine uneven skin tone and texture. This silky, multitasking moisturizer is also the perfect prep step for makeup because it smooths and brightens for flawless foundation application.
The Origins Ginzing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser is a 2 in 1 scrubby cleanser that is fortified with radiance-boosting Panax ginseng and caffeine. Jojoba and carnauba wax gently exfoliate to help unclog pores. Skin looks smoother, brighter. Feels perfectly refreshed and squeaky clean. Plus, Origins uplifting 100% natural essential oil blend of grapefruit, lemon and Spearmint perks you up so you're ready to face the day!
Tone up your sunburned skin from frequent outdoor activities! The Mustaev Mood Therapy Mask - Joy mask contains soothing extracts that even the skin tone and improve the overall clarity. Supercharged with a brightening solution to help alleviate and improve the appearance of dark spots and freckles. There are many factors that contribute to how your skin looks. Diet, hygiene and the environment are a few but did you know your emotions and mood could be the reason for a dull complexion, dehydrated skin, wrinkles, and breakouts?Anger, sadness, and stress are a few emotions we experience regularly and each of these moods adversely affect our skin. Mustaev does carry other moods for other skin needs, you guys need to check them out!
One of my favorite hair products to use while at the beach or just keeping it super casual is the Aveda Be Curly™ Curl Enhancer. Since I have naturally wavy hair, this product intensifies curl, combats frizz and boosts shine on curly or wavy hair. Wheat protein and organic aloe infused styling creme expands when hair is wet and retracts when hair is dry to intensify your curl or wave. Aveda's own pure-fume™ aroma with certified organic lemon, bergamot, orange and other pure flower and plant essences will keep your hair smelling fresh and amazing.
The On the Go eyeshadow palette is a compilation of shades that updates the bare beauty look with a cosmopolitan attitude. With this elegant palette, you can create the prettier, urban makeup look and Go Studio from day to night. The On the Go Eyeshadow Palette includes 9 shades that will boost your confidence all year round. This "Cool Down" palette contains 9 shadows: 5 mattes, 3 satin-shimmer shades, and 1 foiled shade. All of the shades are, as the name suggests, distinctly cool-toned. There are cream shades with pink undertones, taupe with lilac undertones, and cool browns, berries, lavenders, and grays. It is beautiful to look at – very Fall/Winter appropriate.
Another favorite product by Mustaev is the Maxi Volume Mascara which provides gorgeous, voluminous, high impact lashes! The dark, rich color coats and curls the lashes while providing a long lasting wear with no smudging, running, flaking or clumping. I've been using it since this photo shoot and I just can't get enough of it!
More than just a gloss, Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss is a lip plumper and gloss all in one. Bursting with hyaluronic acid spheres, its plumping and ultra-hydrating formula gives lips a supple, plump shape bursting with freshness, and offers up to six hours of continuous, deep moisture. Ultra-glossy, lips are glossed with an incredibly thin and easy-wearing mirror-shine film. I'm obsessed with the "Everdior" coral summer color, it's been perfect for the month of July! Will definitely be wearing more of this color for the remainder of the season.
Last but not least is the Milk Makeup Blur Stick. A colorless, oil- and silicone-free primer to blur the look of imperfections on all skin tones. The Blur Stick minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines on every skin tone for an invisible, smooth matte finish. Use it as a primer for a smooth finish and to lock in your makeup. This stick is free of silicone, and it will not clog pores.
