I am not the type of person who buy new beauty products often. I’m more of the type to have one of each type of product I need and then repurchase or replace them when they are finished. There are a few new and old products that I now consider staples in my collection. Because I am on a budget and trying to downsize my possessions, most of them are from the drugstore, but they are still very effective and wonderful. Here are my skincare and beauty favorites of 2014!
STELLA MCCARTNEY STELLA PERFUME. I had a smaller size of this perfume about a year ago and I had to restock as soon as possible. I like fresh and floral scents and this one is perfect for winter because it has a slight musk as well.
REVLON JUST BITTEN KISSABLE LIP STAIN. I actually dedicated a whole post to this because I was surprised at how much I loved it. It’s a cooling lip balm, beautiful color and smooth lip stain all in one. Amazing.
STILA STAY ALL DAY WATERPROOF LIQUID EYE LINER. One of my signature looks is simple eye makeup emphasized with a perfect winged eye liner. I’ve tried different ones over the years, but this one really stands out because of its easy to use marker tip and very black color.
THE BODY SHOP ALMOND BODY BUTTER. I used to hate using lotion because of the hassle it was, but the scent, texture and results of this body butter makes it a super pleasurable and relaxing experience. Bonus: my skin has never been softer!
AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT DAILY MOISTURIZER. This is also a product that I’ve been using for years and have consistently loved. I love the natural scent and the fact that it has SPF.
GARNIER SKIN RENEW MIRACLE SKIN PERFECTOR BB CREAM. I stopped using foundation in the summer because the heat was too unbearable and never really went back. To create an even base, I now use a BB cream with my fingers to create a natural and clear face. Looking to try more, but for now this is a great drugstore pick.
MAYBELLINE INSTANT AGE REWIND ERASER DARK CIRCLE TREATMENT CONCEALER. This concealer has been amazing for everyday and for the mornings after m sleepless nights. I used it on blemishes as well and it was pretty effective. I also love the sponge top applicator– super quick and easy!
RIMMEL STAY MATTE PRESSED POWDER. A super inexpensive drugstore face powder find. This is a recent purchase for me, but so far it has worked beautifully.
AVEENO POSITIVELY RADIANT SKIN BRIGHTENING DAILY SCRUB. I’ve been using this scrub to wash my face every night for the past year and I love it. I love the fresh smell and the light exfoliation that really gets all the gunk off my face. The Aveeno products are a bit pricy for drugstore finds, but, in my opinion, they are totally worth it.
