Beauty Favorites: January 2017

January starts a new year with endless possibilities and another reason to purchase more beauty items. This month’s favorites were all items that I couldn’t live without and became a part of my beauty routine.

This month was a mixture of makeup and skincare due to the unpredictable weather in Florida. So, I focused on the classics of being hydrated for skincare and long-lasting makeup to get through the long days.

Below are the four items this month that made a lasting impression.


Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herb and Rose Water

This is my go-to facial spray to refresh or to set my makeup for the day. The spray is extremely travel-friendly being the perfect size to throw in gym bag or purse. The spray is of rose scent but not overpowering. A few squirts and your feeling refreshed and ready to conquer the day.


NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer

When I saw this new product while at Sephora, I quickly found my shade and purchased it. This concealer is described as high coverage yet natural, according to the NARS Cosmetics website. This is a perfect description for this concealer is the exact match for someone looking for a full coverage product that is wearable for every day. I wore this constantly this month and absolutely loved it.


MAC Cosmetics 217 Brush

The MAC Cosmetics 217 brush is a classic and a must for any beauty lover. The brush is perfect for applying any eyeshadow to the crease for a blended look. This month I used this brush for almost every look.


Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

This body cream is amazing! From the smell of the cream to the feel or the hydration for the skin, this cream is one of the best on the market. According to the company, the cream’s ingredients “Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí and Coconut Oil; Guaraná caffeine helps stimulate circulation and keep posteriors their smoothest, tightest and positively most pinchable.”

The cream doesn’t fill greasy and quickly goes into the skin. Regardless of the weather, this cream was the perfect amount of moisture.
