tartlette in bloom eyeshadow palette

Supergoop! matte sunscreen

I’m not usually one to splurge on beauty products and have pretty much been using the same handful of products for years, but as I’ve dipped my toes into the world of Tula and with my office being extremely close to a Sephora (it’s a huge problem), I’ve been trying new products on a more frequent basis (aka more than once or twice a year). Over the last few weeks, I’ve picked up more than a few products and honestly – I’m loving them all so much and wanted to share them with you with the hopes that you’ll find a new product (or two!) to add to your beauty routine.

P.S. I am in no means a beauty expert, these are just products I’ve tried, loved, and that work for me!

Tartelette Eyeshadow Palette

I have smaller eyes so I’ve never really been a big eye shadow wearer, but after my mom got me the Naked2 palette in college, I was wearing it more often. Fast forward a few years (I know, I know), all of the colors I loved were gone, and it was sitting in my bathroom drawer collecting dust. I finally threw it away a few months ago and picked up this Tartelette palette to replace it! I’ve only used it a few times so far but I love the quality and the colors!

Tula Cooling & Brightening Eye Balm

Guys – if you haven’t tried Tula yet, you need to. I’m freakin’ hooked. Before a recent trip, I ordered the travel size of the cleanser and in order to get free shipping I needed to spend another ~ $15 (who else does this??) so I figured I’d give the brightening eye balm stick a try! I’ve heard so many things and honestly, it does not disappoint. It’s so cooling and refreshing on your eyes, especially on the hot sticky summer days or if you had a late night! It’s also perfect for brightening your face on those days you don’t feel like putting on makeup.

Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder

I had been using the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil for years and although I really liked it, I didn’t love it. I have tried a few other options, which I also didn’t love so I went back to Bare Minerals until I stumbled upon this translucent powder in the check out line at Sephora (praise 👏🏻🙌🏻). I grabbed the trial size and I’ve barely made a dent in it. It’s long-lasting, great price, and it has a little shimmer to it, which I love!

Supergoop! Mineral Matte Sunscreen

Before the 4th of July, I popped into Sephora to grab a few things and decided I really needed to add a tinted sunscreen into my routine for the days that I wasn’t wearing any makeup but wanted to feel like there was somethingon my face. I was tight on time and couldn’t find anything so I opted for the matte Supergoop sunscreen to avoid looking oily and what do you know – it’s actually tinted! I’m very pleased so far and it’s been about a month since I started using it.

IT Cosmetics Makeup Primer

With the hot summer temps (🥵) my makeup has been pretty much melting off my face by 12 PM and I needed to find a solution, stat. Turns out, IT Cosmetics just came out with a primer and since I already use (and love!) their CC cream, I figured “why not!” and it’s been working miracles ever since. It’s also clear (with a light tint) to it, which I love!

BECCA Sunlit Bronzer

I accidentally dropped my Bobby Brown bronzer and it shattered into a million pieces so I decided to use this misfortune as an opportunity to try something new! And the BECCA Sunlit Bronzer is gorgeous. I love the little shimmer that’s in it and the “barely there” color it gives my face!

Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops

Raise your home if you love a good at-home tanner 🙋🏼‍♀️ I honestly don’t self-tan very often and am pale AF nine times out of ten but after everyone and their mother has been raving about the Isle of Paradise tanning drops, I just had to try them. By now, I’m sure you’ve heard about them too, but all it takes is a few drops in your moisturizer and you’re good to go! No streaks. No smelly smells. Just perfection.

Indie Lee I-Waken Eye Serum

This was a splurge item for me – I mean, $50 for a small tube?! My worst nightmare. But I’ll be the first one to tell you that this eye serum is well worth it. The small tingle wakes my eyes up while the serum keeps them nice and hydrated. Let’s not forget that Indie Lee focuses on clean, natural ingredients to help nourish your skin.

Ouai After Sun Body Soother

To be frank, this stuff is wild. I randomly stumbled upon it at Sephora before heading to the beach and figured I mine as well give it a try since I was going to be spending so much time in the sun. It’s fizzy, it’s extremely cold (even though you don’t keep it in the fridge!), and it feels so good. I don’t know if it actually helps your skin, but I do have to say that I didn’t peel this year post-sunburn and it’s a great way to cool down when you’re sweating your buns off at the beach (or by the pool!).

Kiehl’s Deep Poor Cleansing Masque

I have to admit – I actually bought this for Chris after he was oh so patient with me running errands (who doesn’t love a good face mask!?) but have since taken it over as my own. It leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean and helps get out all the shit that’s stuck in your pores.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

Surprise, surprise, another face mask. We all know how much everyone raves about this mask on Instagram but I honestly couldn’t justify spending $50 on a mask by a brand I’ve never tried and might hate so when I saw a travel size of it at Sephora I just knew I had to have it. I’ve reserved it for after traveling or spending excessive time outside in the sun to help hydrate my skin and it’s worked wonders.

Clean Reserve Travel Spray

My go-to perfume is Chanel Mademoiselle but unfortunately, they don’t have a travel size so when I’m traveling and not checking a bag, I’m shit out of luck. I always just end up not bringing a perfume but when I was traveling last week and a few trips coming up, I decided it was time to find a travel spray to hold me over. This one has a spray top on it (I hate the rollerball options!) and has a clean, crisp smell. I might even get a regular size of it I like it that much!
