My favorite all time products

These are just some of my favorite products. These items are like my go to products I know I can always count on to work . My blogging friend Aly will also feature her favorites in this post too. Extra favorites this time!!

-Neutrogena Micro Mist Airbrush Self Tanning Spray

This has definitely become my favorite drug store self tanner. I used to be skeptical of self tanners because I was using the wrong ones. I’ve used a variety of different self tanners (creams, gels, sprays, I've even got it done at the salon).Yet I was never really satisfied with the results. This spray self tanner is great, it sprays on lightly and is extremely easy to apply at any angle and the color comes out so evenly and natural looking. It literally takes me less than 2 minutes to do my legs (for example). If I was to do my whole body, probably 5 minutes, I’ve never experienced any of those orange self tanner lines like I have with other ones. You don’t have to worry about rubbing it in or waiting hours for it to dry. I highly recommend this to anyone that’s looking for a natural tan and doesn’t feel like spending hours trying to apply it. Plus it was only $12.99 at local drugstores and its oil free so you can apply it to your face without worrying about breaking out.

-Smash box Correcting Primer

Smash box makes three different correcting primers for hiding redness, evening out skin tone and brightening your complexion. I use “blend” it has an apricot tone that evens out my skin tone and helps counteract any discoloration or dark spots. Since I'm guilty for spending too much time in the sun, I feel like my skin needs help evening out. I’ve been using this primer for almost a year now. It is a little pricey but for me it's well worth it, you don’t need a lot at all so it will last you plus it does wonders. I can't imagine putting on foundation without using this first. It goes on so smoothly and creates the perfect base for applying your foundation or powder. I’ve noticed that it helps my pores look smaller too. On good days I will just wear this primer and feel confident enough to skip foundation (and that says a lot for me). It’s oil free with a combination of antioxidants and vitamin A & E. I got this at Ultra for around $40.00 but I just saw it on sale for only $29.99! at www.beautyticket.com

-L’Oreal Lineur Intense Liquid Eyeliner

This is the greatest liquid eyeliner in my opinion. If you read my post on the “winged/cat eyeliner look” I think I mentioned that after going through a bunch of different liners and years of trying to get that look down I finally did and half of that is bc of the liner. Well this is it! It has a special designed applicator that helps you create thin or bold lines, the handle is long and the perfect size for you to get a perfect even line. It’s specially great for creating the winged/cat eye look but you can create any look you want. It comes in navy, grey, soft black and dark black, I like the dark black. It also stays on for at least 12 hours (that’s the longest I've ever had it on w/o removing my makeup). I have no reason to try a different liquid liner now. I bought this at Wal-Mart for only $6.50 which is a huge bargain for the quality.

-Salon Grafix Invisible Dry Shampoo

I have thick normal/dry hair so I don’t have to wash it everyday. On the days I don’t wash it I rely on dry shampoo to help give it that clean look and some extra body. Thank god I finally found one that does what it's supposed to do. You can actually use baby powder but I feel like that’s a pain and it just gets everywhere. All you do is shake the can, spray it at your roots by sections in short quick bursts. Let it dry for about a minute, then I flip my head over and brush it through and my hair looks refreshed and shiny. Plus there’s no white powder left over that you have to worry about. I think this cost $7.99 at Walgreens.  

-Blistex Silk & Shine Chapstick
.Mostly everyone has one lipgloss, lipstick or chapstick that they keep in their purse or I always have it on them. Blistex silk & shine with real silk extracts is my favorite. I’ve been using everyday for literally a few years. I'm pretty sure my lips are addicted to it now. I like how it has a purple case  and it just doesn’t make your lips feel silky and smooth, it also gives them a tint of clear color. It's not like a lipgloss where its sticky. Its more creamy (that’s the best word I could think to describe it). They make a few different types and I’ve tried them but they don’t compare to this one.   






Here’s Aly’s favorites! Make sure to check out her blog!!!!

MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner in Petting Pink with SPF 15- This will probably be in my favorites untill the day I die(not that it will be anytime soon:)! I seriously use this every single day, and I LOVE it so much. It smells like vanilla, lasts forever, is the prettiest color ever, and it has an SPF 15- perfect for summer!
Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in Pink Frosting-  This has the perfect creamy, moussey texture I could just apply it all day. The color is a light baby pink that has some serious sparkle! It just gives my cheeks a little color and sparkle, while giving me a natural glow.
Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in r.s.v.p.- The color if this eyeshadow is seriously------perfect. Such a light, shimmering champagne that is great for low makeup days or as a great base! This little mini one will last me forever, so just get a mini one!
Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten- I think I am obsessed with this. I have had it since April, but really have gotten into it lately. The color is perfect and it has the perfect amount of shimmer. I love it as an all over lid color, but darker skined girls would LOVE this as a highlight.
e.l.f. Tinted Moisturizer in Light Beige with SPF 15- I love this because (again) the SPF is perfect for summer. It protects my face and neck, and feels moisturizing. The best part, it that it is only $1! You can pick up a variety of colors and just see what color fits you best!
Smashbox Limitless Eyeliner in Onyx- This eyeliner is great for when I go swimming, because it is water resistant. It has very high pigmentation, and stay on all day on my waterline. The price is a little......pricey but it is so worth it!
Everyday Minerals Eyeshadow in Laptop- This color is one of the prettiest colors that I own. It applies like a dream, and blends like a charm......okay- this is sounding a little too much like a romance novel. LOL :)
Almay Line Smoothing Concealer in Light/Medium with SPF 10- This concealer feels so good on my under eyes, because it is infused with cucumber! The texture is very smooth and creamy, and it has an SPF of 15.
