Hi Friends! Is anyone else finding it crazy that July is half way over? I have been trying a ton of new products over the last few months and figured I was overdue to share. Y’all know I’m constantly trying out new products because I’m a beauty addict and because I want to share the best products with y’all. Here’s what I’ve been loving lately.
Tarte Face Tape Foundation $39 // I am a huge fan of their shape tape concealer so I knew I had to give this foundation a try. My go-to foundation for the past few years has been Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-In Place foundation. The formula is not thick like the shape tape concealer and the stay in place foundation. I will admit I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first but after using it a few times, I fell in love with it. It’s full coverage but looks so natural on the skin, giving my skin a very healthy glow! It is a matte finish but I would say it’s more demi-matte. I have combination skin and when my face is on the more oily side, it stays on with no issues. I pair it up with their face tape powder. Seriously if you like full coverage foundation, try this one out.
Too Faced Primed & Peachy $34 // I had gotten this in a gift set for my birthday, so I was excited to see how well it worked. It’s a mattifying primer that has cooling properties and it also helps brighten your complexion. Despite it being a mattifying primer it has a very light feel to it and helps soften your complexion. It feels so good on the skin with the cooling effect and keeps my makeup in place.
Kopari Coconut Melt $28 (for 5 oz)// I’ve used other melting balms before and enjoyed them. I had purchased this a while back but never used it until about three months ago (I had other balms to use up). I love that it was super gentle when it came to removing my makeup and left my skin feeling extremely hydrated. It also smells amazing! The great thing about this melt is that it can also be used as a hair mask, moisturizer, shaving cream, etc. Well worth the money because a little bit goes a long way, so it lasts for awhile.
Pixi Beauty DetoxifEye Hydrogel Under-Eye Patches $24 // If you follow me on Instagram, you know I have shared several times about how much I love these eye patches. These are a huge lifesaver when my under eyes need a pick me up. They contain hyaluronic acid and caffeine which help smooth, depuff and aids in reducing dark circles. They are very cooling which also helps decrease puffiness (I put them in the fridge to give them a little extra cooling). These are a great steal for the price seeing they contain 30 pairs.
Moxie Lash (Sassy Lash Kit) $75 // I know you’re probably thinking $75 for lashes? The kit contains one set of lashes and magnetic eyeliner. I went round and round about purchasing these because I wasn’t sure if they really worked. I did some research after they had been out for a while and I took the plunge. I love wearing false lashes but honestly hate dealing with the glue. I was extremely surprised with how easy the liner is to apply and once the liner is dry, the lashes go on with no issues. I did a wear test to a concert where I was dancing all around and they did not move. I’ve seen others splash water on them, etc and they held up. Moxie Lash does claim that you can use the lashes up to 30 times and the liner up to 90. So I do believe that they are well worth the price, especially if I don’t have to deal with the pain of the using glue.
Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo Light Tones $26 // This is the second dry shampoo I have ever used. I have been stuck on using my ride or die Dry Bar dry shampoo since September (first time I had ever used dry shampoo). When the Sephora sale came around this was one product that was highly recommended to try out. I have been using it for the last month and I can say that I may love it more than my dry bar. It is a lot lighter on the hair as far as formula is concerned. I honestly do not feel that I put anything in my hair when I use it. When I use the dry bar one, I can say that my hair has a little bit of grit to it (nothing bad) but def a difference. I will say the one thing I wish this one had was a little bit of volume to be added to the formula. They have one for dark tones as well, which has gotten great reviews.
I hope you enjoyed this round-up of beauty favorites I’ve been recently loving. I’ll be sharing a lot more products I’ve been trying out soon!
What have you been loving lately?
I have heard so many great things about the Shape Tape products. I’ve never bought any in that line but I really would like to because it seems like such a great product.
Kristin I really love the shape tape products! Tarte typically always has great products that really work. 🙂
I think my next beauty purchase will be the face tape! I have been seeing so many people leave good reviews for it!
Ashley it’s a great foundation even with it being full coverage. It literally looks like your skin but a better. Hope you try it soon and love it!
Mistle, your lashes are to DIE FOR!!!! I have been wanting to try any beauty products by Kopari, but haven’t gotten around to it, so I definitively will check this out! I’m also OBSESSED with those eye patches, first thing in the morning while I sip my coffee! I haven’t tried that dry shampoo, but girl my ride or die is definitely the dry bar! Love these beauty products!
Thanks girl!!! I was surprised with how much I liked them! I have a few other Kopari products that I need to try out but the melting balm is so gooooddd! Pixi has some kick butt products and I love that they are affordable! I agree about dry bar but try this one! You might really love it as well. 🙂
I’ve heard amazing reviews about Tarte Face Tape Foundation, after reading yours I’m going to get it!
Love all the products you listed above too!
Lina it’s a really great foundation if you want full coverage but still have a natural looking finish. Hope you enjoy it if you try it out!
I love all Kopari products. The coconut oil smells amazing and the deodorant is great.
Kim they have a lot of really great products. I haven’t tried their deodorant yet! I will have to give it a try soon.
Omg, need those under eye patches!! Thank you!
Melissa they are really good eye gel patches!
All of these products sound amazing! I’ve heard nothing but great reviews about the Shape tape concealer, so I want to try the foundation!
cute & little
Kileen I love being able to find new products that work for me! So of course I have to share them with you all. The foundation is really awesome! Much lighter formula than the concealer.
So many fun products, I have been wanting to try the pixie de-puffing creme
Jerrieal pixi has so many great products! The eye gels are amazing!
I need to try a new dry shampoo so I’m happy to see this one highly recommended. Adding it to my shopping list!
Christa it’s a really awesome dry shampoo! If you try it out, I hope you enjoy it!
I’m so dang sad that the new Tarte foundation has avocado oil in it because I’m super allergic to avocado, and otherwise I’d be SO psyched about that product. I love so many of their other products so much. Breaks my heart! But I do want to try that coconut melt and the undereye patches!
Stephanie it’s such a great foundation! What is your favorite foundation that you use? If you try out the coconut melt and eye patches let me know!
This is such a lovely collection of beauty products, Mistle! Those under-eye masks sound so refreshing. Dry shampoo can be such a life-saver, too! Thanks so much for sharing these great options!
Thank You Sarah! The eye masks are amazing! I agree that dry shampoo can be a life saver for those days you are in a rush. 🙂
I still need to try the new remake of the Shape Tape foundation. I was a huge fan of the concealer before their first *try* at the foundation came out… I tried both hydrating nd matte and they were awful. I have high hopes again for this one! I’m glad to be seeing positive reviews so far.
Summer it’s really awesome! Though it’s matte, it looks so good on the skin. Completely different formula from the last foundation which is a good thing!
This is such a great list! I really love the shape tape products. I will surely check this further
Thank You Jasmine! The foundation is really awesome! I get compliments on how it looks a lot. If you try it out, hope you like it!
