5 beauty products I would buy again {part 6}

Read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5 of this series.

part 6

{1} NYX Blush in Pinched {$5.00} I love the NYX Powder Blush line as a whole, as the pigmentation is incredible for the price point, and very comparable to higher-priced brands {NARS and MAC, I'm looking at you}; but my everyday go-to is Pinched. The shimmery golden peach pink adds the perfect glow; plus, it's a super affordable dupe of NARS Blush in Orgasm.

{2} Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper Lipcolor in Lust for Blush {$7.49} I love a nude lip, and to achieve my perfect one I've been using Lust for Blush nonstop. The color is a your-lips-but-better nude-meets-pink that virtually works with any makeup look; but, unlike many lipsticks it doesn't feel drying. It's a super moisturizing / hydrating balm that is gorgeous worn alone, but also looks stunning layered - I use it as underwear for Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Pink Pop and Maybelline Color Sensational Color Whisper Lipcolor in Oh La Lilac.

{3} YVES SAINT LAURENT Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll in Black {$30.00} Not too long ago I received a deluxe sample of YVES SAINT LAURENT Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll in Black from Sephora and, ladies, I think I've found my soul mate {lash mate?}. Initially I was iffy about the brush {it's one of those bendable / flexible rubber-type ones}, but ZOMG - the brush is one of the reasons why this mascara is so amazing. It separates, volumizes, defines, and lengthens; not to mention that it works wonders on the lower lashes. Forever in love.

{4} mark Angled Contour Eye Shadow Brush {$8.00} I am continually impressed with the quality of mark makeup brushes. Their Angled Kabuki Face Brush {which I raved about in November} remains one of my faves; but my latest brush crush is their Angled Contour Eye Shadow Brush. This brush makes you feel like a makeup artist. The angle of the tip gets deep into the crease and truly contours the eye perfectly. Buying a backup of this baby!

{5} Julep Beauty Julep™ 'Essential' Cuticle Oil {$18.00} A lot of people here and on Instagram ask me how I keep my nails/cuticles so healthy...this is the answer. I have been using Julep™ 'Essential' Cuticle Oil for over a year, and I will never ever use anything else. This. Stuff. Works. I rub it all around my cuticles, and all over the nail itself two to three times per day. It nourishes like no other, and doesn't require unhealthy pushing back of cuticles. This is one of my most highly recommended beauty musts.
