New beauty finds

First off, I am overwhelmed by the support and lovin' that I received from y'all yesterday. Thank you thank you thank you. When I wrote that post, I was terrified. But now with it out in the open, I feel good! I feel like I can breathe. And who cares if my relatives (reminder: relatives does't always equate to family) have anything negative to say.

Moving onto one of my favorite topics these days: beauty products.

There have been three beauty products here lately that have absolutely blown me away! I'm not even exaggerating either! I really enjoy trying new products. Sometimes I find duds, and other times I find major scores. In this case, I found three wins!

I bought this item on a whim just thinking I'd try a new powder to set my foundation. I love any and all things matte, so I figured "why not?" I love when powders offer a transparent color, so that's the one that I selected. Let me tell you... this powder is amazing. And for it to be a drugstore find, I was completely surprised. I've never actually used any other Rimmel products before this one, and I'm really glad I tried it out! My personal opinion is that it feels high end but without the price tag!

If I could summarize this product in one word, it would be FAVORITE. Of each and every blush that I've ever tried (yes, in my entire life), this is my favorite. The color goes beautifully with my pale skin tone. The texture is part creamy, part powdery. I am so so so happy that I randomly picked up this item at Ulta recently. I have found my forever blush and I have zero plans of ever switching!

I got this bad boy in my October Ipsy bag and was not too sure about the color. It's a muted plum color, which is not exactly my style. BUT, when I applied it, it basically just enhanced my natural lip color. The thing that I am absolutely loving about this product is that it feels like I'm wearing chapstick. I am (literally) addicted to chapstick, so this is amazing. It has a menthol feel about it, and lasts for-ev-er. With this lip polish on, I do not feel like I would have to re-apply any other lip product for several hours.

Have y'all tried any of these? I would highly recommend all three products. Seriously!


  1. The Buxom lip gloss is my favorite! I have only tried "sugar" but have been thinking about branching out to try another one. I've been wanting to try the blush and you may have just convinced me! :)

  2. I love that Rimmel powder! I use it every day! It lasts forever too. I started to run out so I bought a replacement a few months ago and I'm STILL using the old one!

  3. I'm looking for a new pressed powder so I'll have to try drugstore prices that feel high end!


  4. I have been going back and forth on whether or not to try the Buxom lip gloss, but I think it's time to just give in already! Great reviews! :)

  5. I have heard that the Rimmel bronzer is also awesome!!

  6. I'm obsessed with my Buxom!!!!! And I love how it doesn't create that nasty line of lip gloss build up on my lips other ones do.

  7. I bought Buxom (before I even got it in my Ipsy bag) and it's one of my favorite lip glosses! I have it in a pink color and it's perfect for pink/neutral lip sticks. I'll show you in a couple weeks! :)

  8. that dream bouncy blush is my new fave!! love it!

  9. Beauty products are AWESOME and all....but its Scandal Thursday!! LOL ;)
