While I might not be a full-on beauty addict, it’s safe to say that I enjoy trying out new products just like any other girl, and there are a few that have stood out from the crowd.
I try not to buy too many new things, but every once in a while something works so well that it manages to outshine whatever I already owned, and I end up replacing my old favorite.
I’m especially excited to have finally found a liquid liner that goes on flawlessly and stays in place (and stays… and stays… and… well, there’s a makeup remover on this list for a reason).
Here are six new products that I’ve fallen in love with so far this year:
My 6 Favorite Recent Beauty Finds
R+Co describes this product as being “good for studiously messy styles,” and I completely agree. It’s been perfect for adding body and messy volume to my shorter hair, but I’ve heard it works wonders on longer locks as well.
While I love using face oils at night, I was looking for something similarly moisturizing (but much less oil-slick-y) for day. Enter Tatcha’s Deep Hydration Firming Serum – a perfectly light, perfectly hydrating serum that sinks into my skin weightlessly and disappears under makeup.
It also manages to add a nice luminous glow to my skin (or maybe I just think it does because it comes out of the pump as a golden-bright gel).
While I can mix up my own sugar scrub at home, there’s something a little more luxurious about this tiny pot of vanilla-scented goodness. A little goes a long way and keeps my lips soft for hours.
This is my favorite liner ever. After trying everything from Revlon to Stila, L’Oreal to Benefit, this is the only liner I’ve ever found that manages to draw on smoothly and stay put. All I have to say is: finally! (and if you’re at all a liquid gal, do yourself a favor and pick this up, stat.)
I typically only use make-up remover when taking off waterproof eye makeup, so I thought that a standard drugstore variety would be fine. I figured the greasy feel and stinging senstation in my eyes was just a part of the process – until I tried this Caudalie version. It takes off makeup easily and painlessly, and doesn’t leave any greasy residue behind.
I found Missha Sun Milk on a layover in Seoul, and I’m so glad I did! It’s very fluid and has a milky texture (hence the name) so it disappears under makeup and is light enough to wear every day – which is great, because I’m terrible at remembering to put on sun protection otherwise. I even sent a bottle to my mom!
I’d love to know: have you tried any of these products? What new beauty finds have you discovered lately?
