5 Beauty Buys


Good morning!  Today I'm sharing five of my favorite recent beauty buys. 

ONE | Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner: I've tried a lot of eyeliners.  Every time I finish one, I purchase a different brand because I've never found one that I love.  Well, I love this one.  It's super easy to apply, stays on ALL day (as long as you use your primer!) and is available in over 30 colors.  

TWO | Smashbox Contour Stick Trio: Contouring has always seemed pretty intimidating to me but Smashbox has made it ridiculously easy.  This kit comes with three sticks - contour, bronze and highlight - a sharpener and a 'how to' guide.  The sticks are so creamy making blending simple and foolproof (I just use my fingers).

THREE | Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer: I picked this up right before our Florida trip (you may remember it from my wishlist post) and it did not disappoint!  I haven't touched my regular foundation since I got it, which says it all.  

FOUR | Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Stick: Love!  I rarely use eyeshadow because I'm too lazy to mess with palettes and brushes and the amount of time it takes but these shadow sticks are a game changer.  One swipe over your eyelid that takes a whopping 3 seconds and you're good to go.  I'm going to be buying every single color!

FIVE | CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream: Whenever CeraVe introduces a new product, I have to try it.  They can do no wrong when it comes to my sensitive skin.  I've used the PM moisturizer for years but have been converted to this new night cream - it's thick, smooth and a little bit goes a long way.  

Oh, and remember my favorite Make Up For Ever green primer that was discontinued?  Turns out they were just reformulating and repackaging and it's now back! 

What beauty finds are you loving lately?

  1. You're the second person who has raved about the UD Glide On Eyeliner! I am always changing to find the perfect eyeliner and this just became the next one I'm going to try out. I need to check out that Smashbox trio too. I'm always afraid of contouring, so the easier, the better ;)

  3. Those contouring sticks look like exactly what I need! I've tried several different methods for contouring and haven't found one that I love. And I'm SO excited that primer is back! You totally had me convinced to buy it so when you said it was discontinued I was so bummed! Off to purchase now before I forget!!

  4. Soooo happy to hear your favorite MUFE primer is back, you know I've been on the hunt for a good primer for what seems like forever! And I'm very intrigued by the Smashbox contouring kit, I've definitely been intimidated by contouring as well and that kit sounds like exactly what I need to get started :)

  5. I was looking at the BB cream eyeshadow sticks during the F&F sale last week and almost got one, but didn't- now I wish I did! I just added the CeraVe am moisturizer to my list for my next Ulta purchase, I'm going to check out the night cream now too.

  7. Ok so, I need to know - these contouring sticks. Do they last? Like, do they stay on all day? I am always a little hesitant about stick makeup for that reason. I feel like it comes off more quickly than powders or liquids. Same question for the BB cream eyeshadow. Does it end up in your creases? I have a BB palette that I use every day and love, but those sticks look so easy and quick - which is always a bonus with a toddler running around!!! Love makeup posts and finding new things. Thanks for sharing, Katie!

  8. I love your approach to beauty - "I'm too lazy for palettes and eyeshadow" because that's EXACTLY how I feel! So I totally need to check out these Bobbi Brown shadow sticks. It sounds right up my alley! Thanks for the heads up :)

  9. I love the easiest way to go, I need to get those eyeshadow sticks! I also need to find the green primer while I am in PA, both of my Sephoras in NJ haven't restocked. CeraVe is AWESOME!

  10. I may have to try that eyeliner if my current one starts to smudge. So tired of raccoon eyes!! Haha. I use the NARS tinted moisturizer, but I've heard so many good thinks about the Laura Mercier one. Love her primer, so I may need to try her tinted moisturizer. Thank you for sharing and I hope that you have a lovely day!!

  14. So many goodies! I think I'm going to have to try the BB shadow sticks and maybe give the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer another go. I remember last time that I used it, it made my skin super oily and greasy, but I'm sure it would be perfect for vacation.

  15. I feel the same way about the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer! It has quickly replaced my usual foundations and become a daily go-to!

  16. I'm so intrigued by the contour stick trio, I've never been able to get contouring down. I've GOT to try the LM tinted moisturizer one day, maybe when I'm low on some foundations I can grab one.

  17. One of my friends swears by Urban Decay, I've never tried it myself though, except when she's done my make-up in the past. I love the eyeliners that go on really smoothly. There's nothing more annoying than uneven eyeliner!

  20. I'm always so amazed at all the make up products out there. I use like 3 things... the same thing since I was young... I could probably be pretty if I knew more stuff about it :)

  21. That 24/7 Glide on Eyeliner is good, huh? LOVE!

  22. You are the third person that has recommended that eye liner! I've been on the hunt for one for awhile now too, but really don't want to get attached to a $20 liner. :( I'm being a cheapo. lol. I am the same way with eyeshadows too - I rarely spend time putting it on, but that stick sounds like a good idea! Love these posts lady! Hope you're having a good day. :)
