e.l.f. Liquid Metallic Eyeshadow – Moon

elf liquid eye shadow

This liquid eyeshadow by e.l.f. is amazing! The pigment is strong, and the formula isn’t too sticky. It also comes in 8 stellar shades. I’m on my second tube, and the only “complaint” is that the bottle doesn’t last incredibly long. That’s not too much of a problem because at only $5 a tube, you still get more than any other liquid eyeshadow on the market. It reminds me a lot of the Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow, and that’s $24 for the same size of tube!

I’ve only tried two shades so far, but I’m partial to the shade ‘Moon‘. I wish there was one lighter, champagne-like shade but ‘Moon’ does the trick!

Aveeno Positively Radiant – 60 Second In-Shower Facial

This is a really unique product that leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft in just 60 seconds! How it works: Wet your face, and leave this exfoliant on your skin for 60 seconds before gently scrubbing the product on your face. Rinse your skin and you’re left the softest skin without it over-drying or being irritated by the exfoliating beads.

While it’s not an absolute “must have” in your routine, it’s feels like a luxurious product without actually costing as much as one. The entire Positively Radiant line from Aveeno is a winner in my book!

Obliphica Seaberry Hair Serum (Fine To Medium)

For whatever reason, my hair doesn’t hold the yummy smell of products that long. This serum, however, leaves my hair smelling good long after I’ve applied it to my towel-dried locks! The Obliphica brand has a formula for fine to medium hair, and one for thicker hair. I chose the fine option and it’s more than enough for my texture of hair. It also doesn’t leave a greasy residue like some (even thinner) formulas.

Clean & Clear Advantage Acne Control Moisturizer

Ah, the good old acne moisturizer. Does anyone else remember using this in high school and college? My skin used to get so dry with all of my acne spot treatments, not to mention all the chlorine I absorbed from my swim team days. I needed a moisturizer to combat the dryness but not clog my pores. This did the trick then, and it does the trick now!

It’s a very lightweight formula with salicylic acid so you get the best of both worlds. I also love this spot treatment for pesky blemishes!

DIME Beauty Eyelash Boost Serum

I love several of the DIME Beauty products, but this was one of my favorite finds of 2021. The formula has amino acids and peptides to help lengthen and strengthen your lashes, and who doesn’t want that?!

I apply the serum at night, but you could use it twice a day. Check out the eyebrow enhancing gel for a similar formula for your brows!
