I am always getting texts, emails, and questions about what my favorite products are…. along with 'what should I ask for for Christmas?'…..well call me Mrs Claus!! Here you are. Please note I had to narrow it down….there is a ton that didn't make the list. After the New Year I will try and do another list. Happy shopping and gifting. Please give me feedback after purchasing and trying your new products!
LORAC MEGA PRO 3
This palette is everything!!! I love the equal balance of matte and shimmer. There are plenty of neutrals for the girls that are nervous to play in the bold colors… I must say the Navy and Pomegranate colors are my fav. Please give them a whirl. For $59, sold exclusively at ULTA this is a MUST for your wish list.
GERARD SETTING SPRAY
I swear by this product. I love the name, SLAY ALL DAY!! It truly is the best setting spray I have found on the market. The scents are heavenly. I own the Lavender and Green Tea, I plan to order Jasmine and Cucumber my next purchase. They are $22 and sold on Gerard Cosmetics website.
FIRST AID BEAUTY
The Facial Radiance pads are a must on my face everyday…. what I love about these pads is that they are strong enough to get rid of my oil, but still do not dry out my skin! I can not put on makeup without using one. They are $30 for 60 pads….UMMMMM Steallllll!!
The Purifying Mask is a peel away mask, I can use this at least twice a month. What I love about this mask is that when you peel it off its like a Biore Nose strip for your entire face!! My skin feels detoxed and softer than ever….with no breakouts like some masks cause. $30 as well. Both can be found at ULTA and Sephora.
Winter is coming….don't forget to apply a little color so you don't blend with the snow!! Tarte's Brazilliance Plus is exactly the right color, not orange and not green…its brown!! I love that it comes with a mitt and that you get immediate color…and it still builds through the day.
Shape Tape is LIFEEEEEEE! Ladies, run, don't walk to go buy this concealer!! I am obsessed. Coverage is amazing, texture is butter, build-ability is easy and I love the applicator. you have to order online…last I checked it was sold out at ULTA.
MARC JACOBS EYELINER
Marc Jacobs nailed the eyeliner game with these bad boys. What I love most is the fact they stay ALL DAY, don't smudge at all….but still look smooth and creamy. The colors are striking. Brown Out is the best brown eyeliner on the market…it has the perfect amount of shimmer and isn't too brown. Available at Sephora. Do yourself a favor and buy two shades!!
HUDA BEAUTY LASHES
Ok… Ill admit I didn't see the hype in these lashes. I actually worried the base of the strip was too thick….it is thick, but if applied correctly its not noticeable at all. I bought the style Samantha and I haven't look back. For someone like me who wears lashes frequently I like to be able to wear them a few times before I toss them… 5 wears and they can definitely be worn 20 more!! Worth the money… and I will be purchasing other styles and a back up pair of Samantha's because I would die without them. HUDA, I love you.
IT COSMETICS BRUSH
I don't own this brush yet, its on my wish list…. BUT I own at least 10 It Cosmetics Brushes, and they are soooooo good. blending is easy as pie with this brand,
Now, what intrigues me about this particular brush is that this is what it claims...
What it is:

What else you need to know:
This product was developed with plastic surgeons and dermatologists. It is clinically tested and cruelty-free. It is suitable even for the most sensitive skin types.
For $58 at Sephora.com this brush better do exactly that!!
LAURA GELLER SPACKLE
For my girls who need their makeup to stay all day… let me introduce you to Spackle. The Original is amazing… I recently ventured into using Etheral for an added glow, and I am in love. Friendly tip, let the product COMPLETELY dry before putting foundation on.
HALO COUTURE HAIR EXTENSIONS
My Halo (my 3 Halo's actually) is my best friend. Girls, stop wasting your money on clip in extensions. These extensions are DAMAGE FREE!! After years of wearing the glued, beaded and clip in…I was damn near bald. Now my hair is healthy and growing, all because of my Halo. I still get the volume and length I love but I take it off a night and let my hair breathe! Please look in my contacts page for Heather Bosler's info to get your Halo today!
I have tried many foundations in my life… but what I wear on a daily basis is YSL Touchet. The coverage is so build-able and creamy. I also like to mix with mu face lotion for more of a BB/CC cream affect. Worth every penny.
KENRA THERMAL STYLING SPRAY
I constantly hear from girls that their curls do not stay…well let me introduce you to KENRA Thermal Setting Spray. Product can be your best friend when trying to achieve curls. This product works on all hair types. It is available at ULTA.
TO GO SPA
Tired mamas raise your hands…. I received this product in my IPSY bag and I actually went and ordered it again. Three sets of under eye patches come in this, for $10! I loved that they stayed on my face, and that they were cooling! I truly feel more awake and that my eyes are less puffy every time I use them. Great stocking stuffer item for a friend, sister, mom or grandma.
HUDA BEAUTY ROSE GOLD EYESHADOW PALETTE
This is my favorite purchase I have made in a long time. I don't recommend this as an everyday palette unless you are a true Makeup Junkie. The colors are PIGMENTED. what I love most about this palette is the 'textured' colors… they are made to go on with your fingers, not a brush. You won't get all of the luster out of them unless you apply with your fingers… let me tell you right now they are stunning. This palette is made for fun… and risk!! So go take it!!
