Lawless: Woke Up Like This Foundation and Seal the Deal Loose Setting Powder

I’ve been learning more about non-toxic living lately and started to research makeup brands that focus on using clean ingredients.  I’m kind of a makeup snob so I wanted to find something that not only was good for me, but that actually works and LOOKS good too – Lawless Beauty is seriously the best of both worlds!

The foundation creates a flawless finish (just how I like it!) and is cruelty-free, noncomedogenic, silicone-free, isododecane-free, perfume-free, and non-toxic.  I’ve been wearing the shade Kalahari (there are 20 to choose from) and setting with their Loose Setting Powder – the Brightening Transluscent one is my favorite!

NYX: Butter Gloss

I love a good lipstick, but there is nothing like an effortless gloss!!!!  Especially on days when I’m with my kids or just running errands, I like to have a hint of color – I recently found NYX Butter Glosses and they are heavenly.

My favorite colors that I tried in October are: Eclair, Strawberry Parfait, Creme Brulee, Devil’s Food Cake, and Madeline.

Modere: I/D Anti-Aging System

I am super picky about skincare as well – I have acne prone skin so I HAVE to use products that are non-comedogenic and it is crazy how many products, even ones catered to acne, actually have ingredients in them that can clog pores!!! Grrr.  Anyway, while this Anti-Aging system I’ve been using is for ALL skin types (it is specially for acne), it doesn’t have any ingredients in it that would make my skin worse so I tried it and Oh. Em. Gee.  This is the coolest at-home facial I’ve ever tried!

You put it on your face and it releases oxygen bubbles and feels so amazing – after 5 minutes you rinse off and put on the moisturizer and ta-da!  Pretty skin 🙂  Use the below link to save $10 on your first order!

  • clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet & fine lines in over 95% of users

Maybelline: Instant Age-Rewind Concealer

There are so many fancy concealers that I love but Target does it again with this inexpensive powerhouse!!!!  I love to use one shade as an under eye concealer, and then the Brightening shade to highlight – the applicator makes it SO easy to apply and it looks awesome.

Maison Margiela: REPLICA Memory Box

These are my favorite perfumes and right now Sephora has a “memory box” sample set!!!  These are kind of pricey individually so these little sample sizes are a great way to try out a variety of scents without committing 🙂
