Wow! As a lifetime Nordstrom shopper, I never knew. Now there are things that I think are always worth the splurge, but some of these awesome products are as good (if not better!) than their pricier counterparts. Thrilled!
I started out a beauty blender convert after years of preferring to blend by hand over that of a brush. But the beauty blender changed it all for me! I love the way it distributes the makeup, I get even coverage with less on my face. Then I tried the UBU sponge, and found I actually prefer it! It’s a little denser in texture, and my foundation goes on super smoothly. I use it in the same way as recommended for the beauty blender:
– Get it soaked with water
– Wring it out completely before applying my foundation.
Defintely my favorite steal I’ve found this year!
Bold colors, creamy textures with staying power!
My favorite colors:
– Amderstam, a true, bold, bright red
– Addis Ababa, a bright fuchsia
– Morocco, a lovely orange-red
You know I love a bold bright lip! They have some gorgeous nude options too, Stockholm is a lovely shade to try!
You can buy online, but I like to shop color in person. Nordstrom Rack is one of my faves for a full selection.
My friend Regi turned me onto this as an eye makeup remover. Made for babies, it’s incredibly gentle, yet removes all my eye makeup with so little rubbing. It’s even safe for my eyelash extensions!
(ps) Regi does the best eyelash extensions in the great seattle area!
Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel This last Monistat Chafing Relief Powder-Gel This last one was a bit of a shocker to me, but my friend Michelle recommded it and I had to try! I’ve been using it in place of my foundation primer for the past month, and it’s a winner! I’d say it definitely comparable to Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer and would work for just about any skin type. At a quarter of the price, it’s quite the deal.
