In 2016, I really fell in love with It Cosmetics under eye concealers, including the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer. Actually, the Bye Bye Under Eye concealer was one of my favorite products from 2016. Therefore, a friend decided to gift me with It! Cosmetics CC+ Eye Color Correcting Cream Concealer. I initially assumed they were the same product with one or two different uses. However, after having used both, I noticed that are some similarities and differences. Keep reading to see what I found out.
If you’re wondering “Didn’t I already see this post?”, the answer is yes. This post was originally posted last month, but some server issued caused some of my posts to get unpublished and/or deleted. Fortunately, I was able to scrap some of this post off of the server’s ceiling. So, again, I’m sharing my favorite beauty products of 2016.
You might’ve notice that this past year, I’ve bought, tried, and blogged about a lot of makeup and skincare products. I guess that’s part of the whole “beauty blogger” thing. However, I didn’t try all these products to blog about them. Actually, I fell back in love with trying new products and playing in makeup, which is what started me to blog 10 years ago. Playing in makeup has become my hobby again after many years. It’s been so much fun to spend a chill Saturday afternoon working on my blending skills. Also, strolling through Ulta to blow off some steam from a long day at the office has become a highlight to some of my weeks.
Now that I’ve found my love of makeup, I tried a lot of products this year. Like with anything, there were some that loved and some I hated. Therefore, I decided to share my favorite products of 2016, which are all products I would buy again and again.
Aside from needing extra time to warm my car up in the morning and having to up my moisturizer game, cold weather brings some other problematic things into my life. During the colder months I find myself fighting dry scalp. Yes, your girl’s scalp gets dry in the winter, too. So, I’m usually finding products to help combat the flaking and dandruff that comes along with having a dry scalp.
Recently, I started using L’Oreal EverFresh Anti Dandruff system that includes an exfoliating scrub, shampoo, and conditioner. L’Oreal’s EverFresh line was developed to help those of us who suffer from the dry, flaky scalp. I only have to deal with dry scalp in the winter, because of the harsh cold weather. However, this line might be worth trying if dry scalp is a constant problem for you.
Why not kick off this year’s holiday gift guide with gifts for makeup lovers, because I love makeup? Actually, one of things I look forward to around the holiday season is all of the holiday makeup kits. I usually buy these for myself, because I don’t have that many people in my life that share my love of makeup. However, this year, I have a couple of people on my list who might enjoy one of these beauty sets for Christmas.
So, if you have a makeup junkie on your shopping list or wanting to get yourself some new makeup, check out these suggestions.
Over this past year, one of the best things I did for my skin was including skin serums into my skincare routine. Unfortunately, I was too naive to realize the power of including serums in your skincare routine. Recently, I’ve become dedicated to including a serum into my morning and nighttime skincare routine. My skin has improved drastically since I’ve introduced skin serums to my routines. My skin’s texture and complexion have improved over the past couple of months since I’ve added serums. Also, my breakouts are a lot more scarce.
