here’s just a few of my current favorite beauty items


Bobbi Brown Brush Cleansing Spray: This product is wonderful. I’ve had the same Bobbi Brown foundation brush for 3 years now, and this quick spray magically removes the foundation from my brush!  I usually spray it on the corner of a paper towel, wipe back and forth, and its clean!  I also recommend washing your brush with shampoo once every week or two to make sure to get it all out.  Find it here for $22.



Second up: Clinique Moisture Surge Intense. First off, I love clinique products because they are 100% fragrance free, yet they still have a very fresh clean scent. In the spring and summer my skin tends to become dry, and this stuff comes to my rescue. Put it on before bed for a refreshed face, or under your morning makeup. Get it here for $38.50:



Next up is my favorite bronzer by Laura Mercier (Shimmer Bloc – Golden Mosaic). You can’t see it in the picture, but it has four different shades of shimmered bronzey goodness. I came across this product accidentally when my favorite Estee Lauder bronzer went discontinued… and to tell you the truth, I love it even more! In fact, everything I’ve ever used from Laura Mercier is a win in my book. Perfect for the spring and summer! You can find it here for $42, and it will last you all season:



Moving down the list, Two-Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Ok, so I can’t control myself when I walk into a Sephora for only one thing, and I ended up getting this little number as a freebie with my Beauty Insider Points. Anyways, I used to use their Better Than False Lashes (also by Two-Faced) and it is amazing!! But, it makes your lashes so long and intense it’s just not practical for every day use. The good news is, the Better Than Sex Mascara is perfect for everyday. It really separates the lashes, and still lengthens them dramatically. I highly recommend this product if your looking for a more natural look, but also want to fool people into thinking you have amazing eyelashes! Guess where you can find it?? SEPHORA DUH… get it here for a measly $23.



Also at the one and only Sephora, is there own brand of Cream Lip Stains. Truthfully, I’ve always hated lip sticks and lip stains until this past year. I of course was in there for something else, but since they were only $13 and came in an array of gorgeous colors, I couldn’t resist. Use with lip liner, and it stays on for hours, even after eating and drinking. Colors shown are two of my favorites: Infinite Rose & Coral Crush. Get in the lip stain mood and get these now:



I’m always in the search for the perfect nail polish, and I’ve found a shade to rock all summer long. Its Regents Park by NailsInc, Nailkale line. It’s good quality, and literally the perfect pink. Unfortunately its a ridiculous $14, but you can’t beat this hot pink shade.



Second to last, but not least, my Clarins Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. If you’re like me, you have to put on some kind of mascara or liner to avoid looking like you’re still asleep. The worst part for me is taking it all off at the end of the day. This product makes it super easy, it works, and it doesn’t burn or sting. i use one cotton ball, and in 5 seconds both eyes are clean. You can get it here for $28, and it lasts forever.



Finally… my favorite new perfume: BEACH by Bobbi Brown. I’m a lover of salty air, bronzed skin, and anything ocean. One wiff of this and you feel like you’re on the beach on a warm sunny day. I’m super into the rollerballs right now because I can try out several and they are easy to keep in your purse. They are usually $20-$25 so they are more affordable, but definitely not the best value. I use them to find the ones I really like and then I splurge on the bottle once I fall in love. I will definitely be buying a bottle of this!



That’s it for now! Let me know what you think if you try any of these out!
