Express Distressed Slash Neck Tank, $10
The Express website is sold out of these tanks, but I know for a fact they are still in stores, I was just there the other day! I bought 4…yes, 4…of these in different colors because they were on sale…originally $20 down to $10! The material and fit of this tank is super relaxed, and perfect for summer. I’ve worn mine to the pool, out to happy hour, to dinner, this tank is super functional. Check the website for locations near you that still have stock!
Laura Mercier Ambre Vanilla Hand Creme, $18
Def a luxury product, but sometimes we all need a little lux in our lives. I’ve been a huge Laura Mercier fan for years and years, and I love her bath and lotion products. I’ve been using this hand creme a lot recently, the smell is heavenly, and it gives great hydration with vanilla and grape seed extracts. Hand creme is something you always need, but don’t use a lot of, so spending $18 to have it for a while, and seriously loving the product, makes it worth it for me.
Schick Hydro Silk Razor, $9
I’m typically a Venus girl, but I saw this on sale and I gave it a try…turns out I’m loving it way more than I ever loved Venus. I love the shape the handle, and I haven’t had any issues with the razor, or replacements. Daily shaving is required during the summer months, and Schick Hydro is working really well for me! PS: If you have Ebates, and shop through the link above, you could earn 7% cash back!
Looking forward to getting back on track with Thursday’s Fab Five…I have many products on the list to share with you all!
Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 Mascara, $21
I had a few samples of this mascara, and I just used up my last one this week. I will definitely be purchasing this, I loved the way it gave my lashes volume, length, and curl. The black is super dark and perfect for the look I like, and I never found this mascara to be drying for my lashes. Also, can we just look at the packaging for a moment???!! I love, love, love, the packaging of this mascara…it looks so luxurious and vampy. One last note…this is a Vegan friendly product!
Let me know what you’ve been loving during the month of March, in the comments below!!
This is one of my favorite Alex & Ani’s I own, and since I’m staring at it on my wrist right now, I figured I should share it as a Thursday’s Favorite! I like this one the best because it’s different than your typical Alex & Ani, and the feather meaning of truth, light, & virtue, is really speaking to me right now in life. I have this bangle in gold, which I think looks better than the silver, but really either one is super cute.
LOFT Striped Infinity Scarf, $35
Love a cute scarf. Love the coloring of this one. & it’s on sale, with an additional 40% off this weekend using the code NEWNOW.
LOFT ‘Mixed Media Shell’ Shirt, $39.50
I have this LOFT shirt in like 4 different colors. Tall girl confession: sometimes I have issues with shirts being long enough for me, ugh, so annoying. I love the style and fit of this shirt, the material is light and moves well. The variety of colors LOFT always puts out is great, & the functionality is perfect for both work and after work. Use the code NEWNOW for 40% off this weekend!!
Clarisonic Sonic Radiance Brightening Activator Serum, $65
I meant to share this serum a while ago. I had many samples of this product, and have finally used them all up. I’m a huge fan of Clarisonic skincare products, although they are on the expensive side. This serum is ideal to use in the morning since it does work to make skin look fresh and radiant. My skin felt great each time after I used this product, and while I might not purchase the full size because of the price, see if you can snatch up a few samples next time your around a Clarisonic counter!
Wet Brush Detangling Paddle Brush, $11
This is my second Wet Brush and words cannot describe how much I love these brushes. My hair can be coarse, especially underneath where I have bleached color, so I need a really great detangling brush. I am so impressed with how well this brush detangles my hair after an insane night out, or after a deep conditioning treatment. Wet Brushes don’t pull at the hair, it’s never uncomfortable no matter how awful the knots, etc. EVERYONE NEEDS ONE OF THESE!!
My nightly skincare routine always involves a double cleanse, first with a specific makeup remover like this Bliss product, and then with a targeted face cleanser. I’ve been using this Gel-to-Oil cleanser for a while now, the gel part is definitely interesting, but I like the consistency of when it changes from gel to oil. It takes off my waterproof mascara perfectly, and removes all makeup to prep my skin for whichever targeted cleanser I choose for the night.
MAC Tinted Lipglass in Pink Nouveau, $16
I love love love the light pink color this gives my lips, and my favorite part, the shine factor is high. It’s so easy to put this on top of your favorite lipstick for some added kick, but I also love wearing this on its own too. MAC has a lot of great lipglass colors, but this one caught my eye because I think it’s so flexible in how many different lipsticks you could pair it with.
Starbucks Quilted Pink Double Wall Traveler, $18.95
The Valentine’s Day collection from Starbucks this year is perfection. The light pinks, hearts, and glitter tumblers are basically almost sold out everywhere, so I knew I needed to move fast on this quilted pink traveler mug. I have nice little collection of these, I use them every day for work, so adding another one to my collection was no big deal. I love the color, it’s nice and bright, and the quilted look gives it a cute winter vibe.
Bath & Body Works Cinnamon Caramel Swirl 3-Wick Candle
This scent is no longer available online, but you might be able to find it in store! It’s super sweet, which I usually don’t love, but for some reason I really really like this scent! I have it burning in my kitchen now, so if you love sweet smelling candles, this one will be perfect for you!
Lorac Golden Glow TANtalizer Baked Bronzer, $33
I’ve been using this for a while, and I love the soft glow it gives me. It does have some sparkle to it, so I use it sparingly, but it doubles as a great soft highlight and bronzer each day. & I love baked makeup products, so that’s a double bonus.
Benefit Cosmetics Rockateur Blush, $29
A gorgeous rose gold blush that I cannot get enough of. First of all, I’ve always been obsessed with the Benefit blushes, and this one is rich in color and looks great on all skin types. It’s natural looking and very “buildable”, depending on how dramatic of a look you want. Oh yeah, and the packaging is superrrrr, superrrr, cute!!
Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian, $20
First of all, let me say, Buxom is my all time favorite lip gloss brand. I love the variety in colors, I love the ingredients that plump, and I love the shine it gives to my look. White Russian is a pale nude, it goes with everything, and works whether you’re dressed up, or dressed down. I have two, I keep one in my beauty room & one in my bag, at all times.
What are some things you’ve been loving this week!?
Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Face Primer, $31
One of my favorite primers ever! This is the only primer I used while on holiday break and it did an incredible job, especially for New Year’s Eve! I love the silky feeling when you apply this, it has an interesting texture that I really like. It’s both mattifying and pore minimizing, two things I’m always trying to combat. It’s the perfect base for any foundation and absorbs quickly so you can continue right on with your routine. Stop into Ulta and see if you can get a sample of this product, it’ll last a few times and you can really get a great sense of the type of primer it is!
On sale right now at Ulta!! This is an old favorite, I’ve used this Shea body butter for years. The smell is incredible and rich, and the quality of The Body Shop body butters is awesome, without an outrageous price tag. I highly recommend using any body butter, especially in the winter.
A super cute kitchen towel both my Mom & my Aunt bought it for me for Christmas- I didn’t mind the double gift though! I love having one on each end, and a darker green kitchen towel in the middle, hanging from the oven door. A bright and cheery new kitchen addition, how could it not make this week’s favorites list.
Bath & Body Works ‘Fresh Balsam’ 3-Wick Candle, $11.25
Unfortunately this candle is sold out online, but I am sure your local Bath & Body Works still has some in stock. I know this is a popular Christmas candle, but I love it for the entire winter. It’s fresh, warm, and cozy…which is exactly what we all need on a January night. Bonus is that it’s on sale, yay!!
I have so many more favorites to share with you all! I’m going to try my best to make this a bi-weekly post through the year. Hoping to bring you tons of new products, both beauty & home, to try!
I’ve had this color for a while, it’s from the Pirates of the Caribbean line. I think it gives my nails a much needed break from fall’s dark polish, while still being perfect for the season. I love the glossy grey finish, very chic.
This is from Coffee in the Shower shop, which is also one of my favorite Instagram’s. Search online for a coupon code & you can get $10 off, I remember paying $25 for mine. I love this sweatshirt, I think it’s hilarious, as is everything else in the shop. I wear it mostly in my apartment, or in Starbucks the morning after drinking plenty of vodka & ice.
