Six Favorite Beauty Products


I love sharing new beauty products with you guys when I find them, so today I'm sharing six products that I discovered recently and really love. It's so much fun trying new products and even more fun when you find products that really work. (And no, I'm not being paid by anyone to write this post! I really do use these products :) If you want to know where my outfit and room decor is from, scroll down to the bottom! 

Let's begin, shall we?!


First up, these hair skin & nail gummy vitamins. I picked these up from Target a couple months ago and I'm now on my second bottle! I eat two of them every morning, and they actually taste pretty good (like grapefruit). Like any product containing biotin, you probably won't see a difference right away (it takes a while for it to get into your system), but after using these for a month and a half I can definitely say I've seen an improvement in my hair and nails. I even noticed a difference in my eyelashes - I swear they are longer from taking these!!! After buying these at Target, I noticed that the brand Olly makes a ton of different vitamins for different things. There's a vitamin that supposedly gives you more energy, one that helps you have a restful night of sleep and even one for hydrated skin. Now I want to try them all! 


Next, this NARS cheek kit was actually in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the exact palette is sold out, but I've discovered some of my new favorite products from it! The highlighter in the kit, NARS albatross, is one of the best highlighting powders I've used. It looks white in the palette but goes on golden-y and just GORGEOUUUUUS. I can't even explain how pretty it is on. Another favorite from this kit is NARS blush in "orgasm." I used this shade a long time ago and forgot just how beautiful it is! (It's top left in the palette, above). The color is a rosy bronze color that I can see myself wearing all fall long - I would definitely say it's more suited for fall than summer! It helps your face look more tan, too, which I love.



I don't wear perfume very often because I'm very picky about scents, but Y'ALL. This one is amazing! It's the new version of Chanel's No. 5 perfume, L'Eau. In my opinion it's the freshest and cleanest version of all of the Chanel No. 5 perfumes. This one is really light (not overpowering at all) and very clean, but still sexy and just womanly. I don't even know how to describe how good it smells, I just wish you could smell it for yourself through the computer screen, haha! It doesn't come out until September, but you can sign up for the waitlist here


In the past week, I've tried two new makeup products. L'Oreal Paris sent me their new Infallible Pro-Glo Foundation and I almost, almost tossed it out (I need new foundation like I need a hole in the head). I'm so glad I didn't! The bottle claims that it offers an all-day glow - for up to 24 hours. It actually does last a long time (for me it lasted 12 hours and then I washed my face, haha). It's very liquid-y which I wasn't expecting, so I apply it straight to my face and then blend it in with this foundation brush. It actually looks FLAWLESS on your skin. For the price - $12.99 - you seriously can't find a better foundation. I'm wearing the foundation in the above photo if you want to see how my skin looks with it on! (Also FYI I am wearing color #207 mixed with this liquid bronzer.) I really don't know how I can buy an expensive foundation after using this inexpensive one that works so well! 

I also purchased and have been trying out Laura Mercier's translucent setting powder after seeing it allllll over YouTube. If you haven't heard about "baking" your makeup, watch this YouTube video. You essentially apply a ton of this setting powder on top of your undereye highlight and let it sit for five minutes, "baking" the makeup onto your face. Sounds crazy right?! I believe it does work though! I've been using the powder as a finishing touch to my makeup since I prefer my makeup to look matte, and it really does mattefy and smooth your skin while also setting your makeup. 


And finally, the last product! I picked up one of these Tsubaki Oil Hydrogel Masks from Sephora the other day and had to go back for more. I never really understood sheet masks before (I had tried them without results) but boy do I get it now. This one in particular is amazing for really dry skin - it is by far the most moisturizing mask I've ever used, plus your skin is literally GLOWING and plump afterwards. The only downside to this mask is that it is slippery, and you really need to lay down with your head back for about 20 minutes to keep the mask from sliding around on your face. If you have some time to spare at night, light some candles, put on some relaxing music and try out this mask! Your skin will thank you.

What about you guys? Any new products that you love? Any that you'd like me to review? Let me know in the comments! :)

  6. Thanks Cait! I love your recommendations, and every time you do a post that involves your lovely Pottery Barn vanity I want the entire set-up for my own room. So pretty.

    Also, I've been perusing your older posts (pretty much just continually hitting "older post" forever) and getting ideas for fall wardrobe pieces. I tried on a tunic-style top yesterday that I previously wouldn't have looked at twice - but you always style them so well! - and I loved it. Thanks for all the hard work you put into your site - it's absolutely my favourite thing to read each day :)

  26. I tried the Laneige Water Bank Soothing Gel mask (available at Target) recently and I totally LOVE it! My acne prone skin gets irritated occasionally and this mask really helps. I do have to admit I did not leave it on the full 30 minutes because it does tend to slip around on your face.

  27. The vitamins sound great, I have been taking Biotin everyday for years and it really makes a difference.
    But honestly, I hate Chanel No.5 :D

  30. You have lovely style! Could you please clarify the details of your monogram necklace (size and chain length and metal type)? I'd love one just a bit smaller... And did you get your first one from another company ,prior to the current bauble bar necklace? I'm wondering also about the metal turning color...Thanks a bunch!

  40. So, like many people said: Love the Nars products!

    But mainly I wanted to say, without going back to find all the original post: I LOVE PURE BARRE. I went because of you and I cannot get enough of it. After a little less than a month, my body is soooo toned. I know that with better diet, the weight would fall off--but, honestly, I'm impressed that even with a few pounds, I can see and feel the definition.

    Thank you!

  42. So many of these products are my favorites as well! I love the same foundation (but my staple is the pro-matte kind!) and I too use OLLY vitamins, but the women's daily multi is my vitamin of choice...and of course, NARS Orgasm is a must-have in my makeup bag :)
