New Beauty Favorites

There are certain beauty products that I swear by & would never veer away from (like my favorite mascara & lip primer)...but when it comes to other items (like a texturizing hair paste or bright lip color), I am more than willing to try new things.  Lucky for me, there are some new-to-market items that work amazingly well & are affordable too.  Here is my batch of current favorites that I can't get enough of & are all less than $30!

1) OPI BondAid - $15.95 // 2) Dr. Dennis Gross Daily Face Peel - $28

Lovely items! I've been looking for an orange shade of lipstick and this one seems to be the perfect shade!

I'm totally obsessed with Vaseline. I use it on my lips every night before bed! And I am a true lover of MAC makeup.. especially their lip products!! I'm going to try some of these other picks of yours! Thanks for sharing Kim! : )

Like some many others have mentioned- thanks for recommending the OPI BondAid. Its something I will definitely be purchasing since all my manicures seem to last for only a couple of days! Have you tried the Morrocan surf paste? Would you recommend it to curly haired gals?

Ohh fun picks! I haven't tried the Moroccan paste or that blush yet...might need to make a trip to a certain online beauty site of choice! :) Haha

Kimberly said...

Hi Inna,

Yes, I would definitely recommend the surf paste! My hair is naturally curly & I find that when I use this, it helps separate the curls and makes them less frizzy than other products I've tried. :)

Loving that lipstick! I'm hesitant to try a coral hue because of my hair/skin tone, but I'm totally loving that one! Might have to check it out :)
