Recent Beauty Buys

In the summertime, I generally keep my hair and make-up routine minimal, but I have found a few products lately that I have been loving and I thought I would share with y'all.

First up is an eye shadow palate that I'm loving. I have the Lorac Pro and the Naked 2 palates and really love both of them, but thought the price point was great on Tarte Sex Kitten palate, so I picked it up from Ulta and am really liking the colors.

If you sign up for Ebates before ordering from Ulta, you can earn cash back. I think I got 6% cash back when I ordered mine.

Next up is hair. While mine isn't naturally curly, it's prone to horrible flyaways right now as I'm dealing with regrowth from all the hair that fell out after I had Carter. Any given day I fix my hair, it looks like I stuck my finger in an electric socket after being out in this Southern heat and humidity for ten minutes. I decided to try this anti-frizz weightless styling spray from Living Proof, also from Ulta.

It worked really well for me. I can't say that it would be as effective on naturally curly hair since mine isn't, but it helped tame my flyaways, even in this crazy humid weather we're in the throes of currently.

Moving on to lips. This Glo Minerals suede matte crayon in color Sorbet is such a fun punch of color for summer. I like to use this color when keeping the rest of my make-up pretty simple so that the bold lip color is the star of the show. I found that this wore well for me and stayed put for the better part of about three hours before I removed my makeup for the evening.

Sticking with lip color, but this time a bit more neutral, I picked up Bare Minerals radiant lipstick in color Heaven. I really love this color for everyday use. It's pretty and neutral and I'd think flattering on most complexions. I purchased from Sephora (which is currently 4% cashback from Ebates).

Last up is a new brush I picked up. I'm slowly phasing in new make-up brushes since I'm pretty sure the last time I purchased a new one, I was still a freshman in college. I got the Bobbi Brown eye shadow brush.  The reviews on this were great, and given the length of time I use my brushes, I feel like I got a really good one, I'm pleased with it and would definitely recommend it.
