I wanted to share with you my favorite products from last month! Im going to try and get these posts up monthly so you can see the new goodies I come access every month
Pixi Glow Tonic- This is a super affordable toner that i use every other night after cleansing and before my night cream. It removes the makeup residue that i swear that i take off with cleanser and doesn't make my skin tight like other toners. i used to think that the skin tightening feeling was my insurance that my face was squeaky clean but it was actually making me produce more oil.
Maybelline Big Shot Mascara in Blackest Black- I loooove this mascara! my go to is Loreal Telescopic because of how thin the applicator is but man this one.... kills it. My main problem with all mascaras is that when they are new, they glide on too softly and they curl up my lashes but immediately weigh them down. I like when mascaras are a little dry if that makes sense. I wind up using it and hating it for a few weeks and then it gets better. The Maybelline Big Shot already comes a little dryer so my initial reaction was like WHOA! thats a winner.
Pixi Hydrating Milk Mist- another pix item.... I love the refreshed feeling this leaves on my skin without the oily look. i like to use this after cleansing at night when i don't use my glow tonic before my night cream. i also use when i cleanse my skin in the morning before applying my moisturizer. It has Hyaluronic Acid which keeps my skin plump which is what i look for these days
Milani Make It Last Setting Spray- simple and sweet.... it does what it says its going to do. I like to use setting sprays to remove the look of powder on my face while still keeping my face matte and makeup glued to my face!
Wet and Wild Highlighter in Precious Petals- for $4.99 you can't beat it. if you are looking for an affordable every day highlighter this is the one. i have many highlighters (most of them high end)and i find my self reaching for this one about 4 times a week. It gives just enough glow for going to work, not powdery and a great universal shade. top that with spritz of the milani setting spray and you are all set!
R&Co Blow Out Balm- I like my hair as matte as my face! I know that shiny hair looks amazing and all but that is just not how my hair is. if i use "shiny hair" products, it looks dirty and doesn't move. I love that this product doesn't weigh down my hair before blow drying. I also use this when i get lazy and leave my hair to air dry. my hair is soft, looks clean and smells amazing
Hope you enjoyed this post and i'd love to know if you have used these products and how they work for you!

I often get asked for my must have brushes so I created a chart for you! Most of my brushes are from Morphe Brushes. I love their extensive/inexpensive line. The quality of the brushes are simply awesome.
Please keep in mind that you need to care for your brushes as well. Washing them at least once a week is a must to avoid breakouts and also damage to your brushes. I love to deep clean my brushes with BLVD solid brush cleaner and for in between deep cleans, i love Cinema Secrets Brush Cleaner. For my beauty blender, I use the BLVD cleaner before each use.
Find a photo of the brushes below along with a chart on how I use them. Remember you can use one brush for dual purposes so you don't need to get every single one. If you have any questions on that let me know.
Are any of these brushes your must have? drop me a comment below and let me know.
