We haven't done a Top Five Friday in a long time, so today is the day! This is an easy Top Five Friday to fill. I've come across so many fab products that have truly impressed me, especially number five!
1. STROBE THE VOTE !?!
It's no secret that I'm no fan of the Allure Magazine Beauty Awards. I wrote this years ago and nothing has really changed. Ho hum. You aren't all that in love with Pantene. Sure, they make some great stuff. But every time?
But you'll want to vote in the TotalBeauty 2016 Awards. The industry is watching what we, the beauty mavens, want--and you've got opinions to share! I know you do, so get out there and vote for your favorite products. And you might just win $500 of glorious beauty loot. There are eight prizes in all!
Vote to show your favorite brand love. Vote to show what you want to see more of. Or just vote to start practicing for November (and yes, the primer category is a little wonky).
2. Stila Aqua Glow Foundation and Concealer gives your face such a pretty finish I might just prefer this over my favorite CC Cream foundation. This gives good glow in a way I didn't think possible. Which leads me to my number #3 fab find...
|I'm using all three, but the Infusion gives the glow. Butter Drench is amazing for very dry skin.|
3. BareMinerals Skinlongevity Vital Power Infusion should win all of the awards. I've only been using it for two weeks (maybe?) and the glow I've gotten is unbelievable. I kind of thought maybe it was all of my extra napping, but nope. It's definitely the Infusion. (That's a fancy word for a serum, using a special process BareMinerals patented specifically to boost the efficacy of the California Poppy, Long Life Herb, and Lempuyang Ginger Extracts.) My skin looks healthier and glows in a way I've not experienced before. Seriously.
4. Urban Decay Urban Spectrum Palette is amazeballs gorgeous. The packaging is going to cause heartbreak for a bunch of us, but you'll still want to grab it. And to keep it well after the shadows are gone.
5. It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara is hands down my new holy grail mascara. I don't understand the magic contained in the sleek new mascara packaging. The brush doesn't look wacky and has normal bristles. Here's how It explains it:
Proprietary Elastic Stretch Technology wraps each individual lash in a volume-boosting, lengthening and ultra-conditioning black cape of power and color that’s clinically shown to give you your strongest, longest, thickest and most defined lashes!
Seeing is believing and so get ready to be impressed. My paltry, skinny, not-great on a good day lashes look like falsies after one coat of Superhero mascara.
'Nuff said. (Seriously, just add to your cart.)
What are you doing this weekend? There's a football game or something, right? Whatever you do, have a beautiful weekend!
