Newbies I've Been Loving

Happy Friday to all! This week has flown by and I've had some extra time to spend with my family and Will. Since I live about an hour away from my hometown, it's hard to get there often with my job. Luckily, since school is out I'm getting a couple extra days off.

Today I wanted to share some recent products I've scooped up and have been loving. I hope you enjoy!



Skincare
St. Ives Skin Renewing Collagen Elastin Lotion
If anyone is a sucker for miracle fat burning/improving products, it's me. I'm a huge St. Ives fan. All of their products are paraben free and wonderful for your skin. I started to run out of my current moisturizer and decided to shop around for something new. When I saw St. Ives had a moisturizer with "collagen" in the name, I was sold. I've only been using it for a week or so but the consistency is right up my alley. It's a very thick moisturizer with a fresh scent. Now, I'm not that gullible to believe it's going to rid my body of every area of cellulite, but hey, it's worth a shot? ;)

Simple Revitalizing Eye Roll-On
Again, I was not happy with the Clinique eye cream I had been using and wanted to try something different than a traditional eye cream. My first thought was the Garnier Caffeine Eye Roller Ball, but for some reason I gravitated towards the simple brand. The roller ball on this baby makes your eyes feel like they are in freezing cold heaven. I really like using it when I wake up in the morning to tone down any circles or puffiness. It's been a nice addition to my routine!

Scents
I'm a huge PINK body mist fan. I've been using the "Sweet and Flirty" scent for months now and it's almost out. While I was checking out at Victoria's Secret, I noticed that they changed the packaging on the body mists to this cylinder-like bottle rather than the square ones. It took me a minute to realize they were the same mists *dumb moment*. I saw "Beach Weekend" and the name didn't ring a bell (I think it's new?- anyone know?) Anyways, of course, I had to smell it before I bought it and it's definitely one of those scents that is tailored to an acquired sense of smell. In other words, it's pretty strong. However, it immediately reminded me of the beach and I was sold. It almost has a deep salty scent to it which sounds gross, I know, but like I said, it won't be for everyone!

Beauty

E.L.F. Small Stipple Brush
I've been searching for this brush for ages! After seeing EmilyNoel83 rave about it, I knew I had to own it. Luckily, I found it at Target after searching there for months. I really love to use this for my highlighting brush. It fits perfectly above my cheek bone and also doesn't pick up too much product!

Buxom Full Bodied Lip Gloss in "Mwah"
No joke, I've been lusting over this color for ages. This is my first "Full Bodied" Buxom. I have numerous original Buxom glosses but I've never tried the Full Bodied line. They are basically plumpers without the tingle (I love). "Mwah" is a light shimmering lilac. The color payoff is fabulous with these glosses. I've been getting so many compliments on the color and I really wish my photo above gave it more justice, but it definitely doesn't!


Hair
Living Proof Prime Style Extender 
Another product I've been dying to get my hands on is this hair "primer" by Living Proof. I was so excited to see that Sephora had trial sizes for twelve bucks. The only thing that has been holding me back from buying it has been my fear that it would weigh my hair down which is why I snagged up this reasonable size bottle to try out. Well, I love it and I wish I would have gotten the full size bottle because it would have been a better deal but oh well, this will definitely last me a while. It's basically weightless in my hair and most definitely keeps my hair soft and styled for days. I swear I still have soft curls after 3 days. Loving it!

That's about it for my current favorites! Let me know what you all have been enjoying recently! I always love to get my hands on new stuff ;) Hope you enjoyed!

Until next time...
Love,
Shelbey
