update: beauty routine

a few months ago i shared with you some of my tried and true favorite beauty products.  by no means am i a beauty expert, which is primarily the reason why i share with you the beauty products i use on a daily basis. i'm all for good quality that is c-h-e-a-p.  if i think a product is worth, i won't hesitate to buy it; but please, a little tube of gunk for $45?  not for me.  no thanks!

1.)Chanel Precision Beauté Initiale, $70; Ironically enough i start with the most expensive thing on the list!  This is by far my most luxe and expensive beauty product.  I mentioned before that i was really bad at moisturizing (not to mention using one with SPF!).  I figured the only way to really get me to consistently use my moisturizer was to ensure that i absolutely loved it.  And you know i love my Chanel.  Plus, it smells good and has a light shimmer effect.  Not to mention how pretty it looks sitting on my vanity ;-)

2.) Mane 'n Tail Shampoo/Conditioner, $7, each;  I was a little skeptical to try this out because, well, it was originally made for horses.  But i kept hearing good reviews and honestly, it was all true.  The conditioner leaves my hair feeling so SO soft.

3.) E.L.F Makeup & Cosmetics; available online & at Target;  I'll be honest here folks, i love this makeup line so much i kinda didn't want to share with you.  i don't want them to jack up the prices!!  seriously, it is SO cheap and honestly, for someone who really isn't doing anything glamorous on a daily basis this is perfect for me.  I get the opportunity to experiment with new makeup without feeling guilty for throwing money away if i don't use it all.  P.S. the concealer and bronzer/blush combo are my favorites.

4.)  Biore Warming Anti-Blackhead Cleanser, $7.99; Biore is a company that i always go back to.  i'm a huge fan of the cooling cleanser, and was pleasantly surprised to try this particular warming cleanser.  it smells fresh, and oh baby, when you put it on your face - it.feels. so.good.  don't say i didn't tell you so.

5.) Kat Von D High Frequency Mascara, $9; Again, i'll be honest, i only got this mascara because it was on sale at Sephora.  i won't go out on a limb and say that i love this mascara, but i will say it's good.  not the best, but pretty good.

While those are my newest beauty products, these are ones that i must have in stock 100% of the time or else i'll freak out - no seriously, i need my aquaphor!!


  1. oh i've been wanting to experiment elf since it's so cheap but everyone says good things about it!

  2. I love Elf. It's so cheap but so good. I am a recent addict!

  3. Elf is a friendly prouctd .Thanks for such detials.

  4. aquaphor!!!! i need to try out some of this elf stuff i keep hearing about. hope you had a great weekend :)

  5. Oooh I may need to go buy the Biore. I'm looking for a cleanser like this! Thanks :)

  6. i love lists like this!! i've always been so bad about taking care of my skin and having any kind of routine, thanks for the good picks and inspiration!!

  7. I love Mane and Tail too... and funny enough I have shampooed a horse with it :)

    I splurge on moisturizer too - skincare in general. Lately I've been loving Shiseido products.

  8. i looove mane and tail.. i was convinced my sister was insane for using it at first.. it is pretty odd when you think about it.. but it's great. oh yes.


Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to hear from you! XOXO
