current beauty essentials

In case you weren't aware, I'm a (shameless) beauty product junkie. From make-up, to shampoo, to serums, you name it & chances are I've tried it. A simple trip to CVS to pick up some deodorant may result in a cart full of products labeled "new!" or "limited edition!" Well, at my most recent trip to the drug store I purchased a few products that have changed my world and will probably change yours too.
First let me start off by saying I have the world's most sensitive dry skin. When I picked up this product and read that it was mattifying, I almost put it back. I'm SO glad that I gave this little guy a try. According to the package it visibly corrects skin by tightening pores, diminishing fine lines and revealing petal-soft skin texture. I agree 100000%. My skin literally looks airbrushed after applying this serum. I use it both morning and night after cleansing and I have noticed a huge difference in my skin tone and texture.
2.) L'Oreal Paris Youth Code Texture Perfector Day/Night Cream
This cream is basically amazing. It has a super rich texture but it immediately sinks into the skin leaving it looking flawless and hydrated yet matte. Has a nice clean scent and works wonders in conjunction with the serum. I swear it looks like I've applied foundation after using these two products. Bonus points- They're good for all skin types! Go buy them. Now. 
Official new favorite face powder. I've tried tons of powders from every brand at every price and I've yet to find one better than this. It gives amazing medium/full coverage without being cakey or apparent on the skin. It doesn't settle into fine lines and it lasts alll day. It's super lightweight and lets your skin breathe. If you're a liquid foundation kinda gal, give your skin a break and try this stuff out! I apply it with a big fluffy powder brush. Try to press it into your skin rather than buffing or going in a circular motion.
& There you have it. Three products that I really don't think I could live without. For now anyways. ;)
Until next time!
