Hi friends! For years, I wasn’t one to experiment with new makeup products. I would find a product I loved and then purchase that same product until it was discontinued. What can I say – I’m not always the biggest fan of change. The search for a great eyebrow pencil a few years ago, though, inspired me to branch out and try new products, and over time I have grown to love incorporating different brands into my routine.
Several weeks ago, I got the itch to incorporate a few new products to alternate into my regular routine. I’ve been testing a variety of new products the last few weeks, and while there have been some misses, there have definitely been some hits. I’ve got three in particular to share that I am especially loving. So, let’s dive in.
1. Benefit Dandelion Twinkle Powder Highlighter.
If you know me, you know I love Becca’s highlighter. Well, in my quest to find a suitable replacement once Becca is officially out of business, I discovered Benefit’s Dandelion Twinkle Powder Highlighter. I didn’t want to like it y’all, but it turns out I love it. It’s a much softer, buildable highlight compared to Becca’s, but that makes it perfect for my quick, five-minute makeup routine.
2. Maybelline Falsies Lash Lift Mascara.
This was a total impulse purchase, but y’all, it’s become my favorite mascara. I opened a new Clinique Chubby Lash mascara two days before I bought Maybelline’s Falsies Lash Lift Mascara, and I may as well go ahead and throw the Clinique mascara away. I love Clinique, but this is the best mascara I’ve used in a while.
3. Supergoop! Shimmershade Illuminating Cream Eyeshadow.
Y’all already know my love of Supergoop!, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that I love this eyeshadow as much as I do. It is incredibly easy to apply, and it wears very well. Plus, it’s got SPF 30 so it protects the delicate skin on your eyelids from harmful UV rays. What’s not to love?
Are there any new makeup items that you’re loving this summer? If so, leave them in the comments below. My purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale have started to arrive and although some of my picks sold out before I could buy them, none of my orders have been canceled this year! Alright friends, I’m going to leave it here for today. Until next time!
