Today I wanted to share some great beauty purchases I have made in the past month!
1. Smashbox Step-By-Step Contour Kit ($52)
This is the 3rd contour kit I’ve purchased (returned the other two) and it’s by far my favourite. Not only does it come with a contouring brush, but the colours are perfect for my skin tone, the contouring can be subtle or more dramatic depending how much I use, and I like how small the compact is.
2. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil ($50)
I heard so many great things about this product, but I have been a loyal Moroccan Oil fan for years now. What I like about this vs. the Moroccan Oil is how lightweight it is. It really tames flyaways and I like that it has protection against heat and sun damage. Great product overall!
3. Clear Total Care Shampoo and Conditioner ($8.50 each)
I think I’ve tried every shampoo and conditioner on the market (at least it feels like it!) and I switch between splurging on pricey products I buy at my hair salon, or inexpensive drugstore brands. I bought the travel size versions of Clear for a recent trip and liked it so much that I bought the big bottles when I got back. It leaves my hair really soft for several days, and it smells great. That’s pretty much all I need in a shampoo and conditioner!
4. Christian Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF 20 ($46)
My friend recommended this tinted moisturizer and it’s now my favourite beauty product. It gives you the perfect amount of coverage, colour and glow, and completely replaces the need for a moisturizer, primer or finishing powder. It truly is amazing, I encourage you to try it out for your summer beauty routine!
5. Benefit Watt’s Up! ($36)
This is a cream-to-powder highlighter that I bought for the summer months, when I have a nice healthy tan! You just put a little on your cheekbones, browbones, and I put some on my collar bones too. It gives you a beautiful shimmery glow, and my plan is to use it with my Dior tinted moisturizer (above), a little mascara and i’m all set!
Wishing you all a wonderful Easter weekend!
