Friday Favorites & a giveaway!
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I got a pretty awesome care package from the folks at KIND earlier this week. The package was filled with lots of their new bars, and for me, it was love at first bite with this flavor. If you enjoy the salty and sweet combo, I highly recommend the caramel almond and sea salt.
I received this kit in the mail last week, and I have been using it ever since. The eye shadows are pretty good, and I love the fall-ish colors (although they could be a bit more pigmented when they are applied). However, the real standouts of the set are the liquid eyeliner and lip gloss. I’ve been using a liquid eyeliner by Revlon for a couple of years now, but I can totally see myself using the Pur Minerals one from here on out. It applies like a dream (and this is coming from someone who stinks at applying eyeliner), and it lasts all day. If you are also challenged when it comes to liquid liner, try this brand! The lip gloss actually has a little light inside the cap that turns on when you remove the wand. There is also a handy little mirror on the back of the tube. The color is a beautiful pinkish nude shade that looks pretty when worn alone or over lipstick.
I already raved about this cleansing gel in my California Naturel Beauty Brand Spotlight, but it is worth repeating. This nontoxic face wash is so incredibly gentle, makes my face feel squeaky clean without drying it out, and it has a light fresh scent. The best thing about it, in my opinion, is its ability to remove makeup so effectively. If you’re interested in trying it, see my original post for a discount code!
I am a pretty huge fan of Tarte and Buxom mascaras, so I don’t wear drugstore mascaras too often. After hearing lots of glowing reviews about Miss Manga, I decided to give it a try, and I have really been loving it. My lashes are already naturally long, but they lack a lot of volume. This mascara definitely gives me the voluminous look that I prefer, and it is extremely buildable. One coat is perfect for the daytime, and two-three coats will make you look like you’re wearing false lashes.
I have been on a huge wrap kick this week. My favorite combo is a light flatout wrap, romaine lettuce, onions, tomato, grilled chicken, avocado, and a little sweet onion dressing. It is such a quick and easy lunch option. I can see myself eating these wraps for weeks to come!
