New Beauty Favs

I've been meaning to round up my recent beauty purchases. They've all been beauty raves, and are some of my new favorites.
DryBar Mai Tai Spritzer
DryBar Triple Sec Dry Shampoo
DryBar Lemon Drop Brush
I can't rave enough about the DryBar line available at Sephora and Nordstrom. The Lemon Drop Brush does wonders on my hair even when it's wet, and no more breakage from forcing my brush through tangles.

The Triple Sec Dry Shampoo is the best smelling and long lasting dry shampoo that I've tried. I've liked some others, but never loved any until now. A bit pricier than drugstore brands, but worth every penny!

And last but not least is the amazing Mai Tai Spritzer Sea Salt Spray. I try not to use heating tools on my hair on a daily basis, so I let my hair aid dry most days during the week. I like to apply this spritzer when letting my hair air dry because it keeps my natural waves without them feeling sticky or crunchy. Win-win!
Glamglow Supermud Mask

As I raved last week about this mask, it leaves my face feeling and smelling amazing! Am I the only one who gives bonus points to products that also smell great?
Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette
Ever since I got my first Naked Palette (the original candy bar looking palette) in 2011, I haven't been able to get enough of these amazing palettes. Everything from the packaging, to the pigmentation, to the gorgeous shades, and the best part is how easily blendable they are for day and evening looks make each of these palettes amazing. My favorites change all the time, but I love the rose colored hues in the Naked3 and the originals from the first palette the best - especially Sidecar. 
Other than Oahu, the Vineyard Champagne Kiss is my favorite lotion at Bath and Body Works. Because champagne. 
I still can't thank Katie enough for introducing me to this primer which has been the only product to stand up against the Florida heat and humidity and keep me matte. (My full review can be found here.)
YSL Rouge Pur Couture #9 Rose Stiletto
YSL Rouge Pur Couture #19 Fuschia Pink

I've always found lipstick to be hit or miss with me, as they'll either disappear quickly while out and leave me with that in-between look or they'll dry out my lips. So, I was excited when Influenster asked me to test out two of YSL's shades from their Rouge Pur Couture line because I knew they'd be fabulous - and they did not disappoint. I still can't get over how gorgeous these colors are!

What are some of your recent beauty favorites?

  1. I've heard amazing things about the sea salt spray, perfect for beach waves when you don't live in Florida. The new smoky palette is on my list for a Christmas gift or a I WANT IT gift to myself, haha. YSL lipstick is something I've wanted to buy for awhile, but that price tag is a bit much. Hopefully I can get one the way you did :)! Happy Thursday!

  8. I love the Dry Bar Mai Tai spritzer, it smells like heaven! And you can't beat the Urban Decay palettes, they're just so amazing! I've got the MUFE primer in my bag at Sephora because you've been raving about it so much, and I think I'll have to add these lipsticks too after hearing you and Biana and a couple of other people talk about them so much!

  9. I really need to try that brush. I was looking online the other day for a wet brush to use after I wash my hair, but I wasn't able to find one that had great reviews! I may have to try this one!

  10. Those lipsticks are so pretty!! I'm always too scared to brush my hair when its wet, I tend to stick to combing, but that brush sounds great!

  11. I'm seriously going to have to look into that brush! My hair is so brittle when wet so anything that will keep it from breaking is a must have! And love the Naked palettes, I don't use anything else! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  14. I haven't tried any dry bar products but need something because I am heat-styling every day! I have the original MUFE primer and love it... I'll pick this up once I run out! And there is no lipstick better than YSL! Wish it weren't so expensive!

  18. Love those lipsticks!!! Someday I want to try one of those Naked palettes too. Since the eyeshadow that I use every day from Laura Mercier has been discontinued. :-( That hairbrush sounds great too. I cannot tell you how many times I blow dry my hair and I have to deal with knots. Ouch! Haha. Thank you so much for sharing girl! :-)

  40. Great post! I have heard such good things about Glam Glow. My skin is in need of a major overhaul. No acne but just blah. Is there anything that reverses dark bags under eyes because sign me up for that! And no, you aren't alone--I always give products extra points when it smells good. I hate it when products don't smell good.

  42. that smoky naked pallette looks fabulous i keep talking myself out of buying another one but my original naked is literally running on empty right now ;-) and just the name of the mai tai spritzer makes me want to try it!

  43. I have been dying to buy a naked palette, but can't bring myself to spend the money. I know it is so worth it, but I am such a drug store make up girl its hard to make that next step! I really want to try some of those DryBar products too!!
