It’s been a while since I’ve written about my favorite beauty products and I have so many at the moment that it was difficult to narrow down to only five. Thankfully, I managed to do so and am pretty pumped to share some products that have seriously changed my life and appearance. If you’re looking for a new, fabulous lip color, a dry shampoo that actually works or the perfect way to hide your pores (and more), read on friends!
Bite Agave Lip Mask
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m an avid Chapstick user (to say the least), but this winter it just wasn’t doing the trick. My lips became super dry, flaky and seemed impossible to get hydrated. I finally met a Makeup Artist who recommended the Bite Agave Lip Mask and it was a game changer! After just one use I noticed a significant difference and finally felt some relief from the dry discomfort I couldn’t seem to shake. The lip mask hydrates my lips better than any balm or Chapstick, leaving them silky smooth and perfectly moisturized.

Living Proof Dry Shampoo
For the past year I’ve been desperately trying to train my hair to successfully survive sans shampoo. I’ve tried numerous brands of dry shampoo (including Batiste and Not Your Mother’s), but I promise, none compare to the quality of Living Proof’s Dry Shampoo. As someone with fine hair and a naturally oily scalp, I was actually able to go three days without washing my hair and it still looked fresh and clean! This dry shampoo smells great (a lot of the others, not so much) and works amazingly to soak up oil with just a couple of sprays. It’s a bit pricy for the size (4 oz), but those extra couple of hours of sleep each week makes it totally worth it!
Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme with Liner
I absolutely love discovering new lip colors, but had yet to find one that met all of my needs, until I received Le Marc Liquid Lip Creme and Liner from Influenster. The thing that impressed me the most was this duo’s lasting power. It stays on great throughout the day, even while sipping my morning coffee (lipstick on my cup really irks me). This lip creme also allows my lips to feel moisturized, which is a must for any lip product I use. This color is called, “Slow Burn,” and is a great dark, neutral shade. I’ve honestly never used lip liner before (my little sister had to teach me), but now I’m completely converted. It definitely helps to better define my lips, enhance the color and enables it to last longer.
The POREfessional Face Primer
One of my biggest insecurities is my large pores. I tend to get a little obsessed with finding ways to reduce the size and appearance of these awful little face craters. I honestly don’t know how I ever left the house prior to discovering The POREfessional Face Primer. I was hesitant to try it at first, thinking it may contribute more to clogging than covering, but this primer is super smooth and lightweight. Most importantly, it perfectly covers the pores that unfortunately span across my nose and cheeks (with just a small amount too!). If you’re a bit pore obsessed like me, I promise, this product will change your life!
Clean It Zero Cleanser
A good facial cleanser has become an essential step in my nightly skin care routine. After all, I need a way to remove all of the product that I’ve added to it throughout my day. Cue the Clean It Zero facial cleanser! It not only effortlessly dissolves my makeup, but also exfoliates my skin leaving it feeling ultra clean and smooth. I used to only use eye makeup remover and face wash before bed, but now I highly recommend adding a facial cleanser to get skin as clean as possible. This one works great and is very affordable!
