I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas! I have been trying out some new beauty products and have found some legitimate winners!
My lips get dry every winter because I’m usually sick and that results in mouth breathing at night. Ugh. Poor Ian. This lip oil is ridiculously moisturizing and I love it- which is surprising because glosses are not normally my thing.
If you want a drugstore priced lip balm for this winter, this $6 steal is great! Granted you have to go to Sephora or Ulta to get it, but it’s a great petroleum-based balm. My all-time favorite is still this balm, and nothing has made me give it up. There’s a wide variety of colors to choose from, but the clear or the light pink version is ALWAYS on my nightshade or in my purse.
I found an amazing hand lotion (from the drugstore, no less) that absorbs and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling! YES!! Highly, highly suggest. This also helps my cuticles stay hydrated in the winter and keeps hangnails at bay!
I recently discovered this moisturizer for when my skin gets super dry, and it’s lovely. If you would like a more affordable version, this is great too!
I know it’s not a beauty favorite, but these gel pens (highlighters and markers) are erasable. YES!! To say I love pens is an understatement. Well, to be fair, I love the entire art section. Pens, colored pencils, oil pastels… I don’t discriminate. I was loyal to my Staedtler pens for years and now they’ve taken a back seat to these innovative options. They’re amazing and I would gift these to everyone I know if I could.
This blush/eyeshadow palette is one of my favorites of all time for pale skin and is on sale for $19 (normally $30). Scoop it up before it’s out of stock!
This glitter eyeshadow is perfect for New Year’s Eve if you wanted a dramatic eye. Although, I have been wearing it almost daily since it came in last week. I also like these:
Lastly, this ring was my Christmas present from Ian. (We don’t do gifts on the actual day for some reason, and it came yesterday.) They also make necklaces and earrings, but I have my eye on this plain gold stacker. Perhaps a birthday present!!
I will probably do a separate house update post because we have a LOT to update! Have a great and wonderful Christmas weekend, friends!
