Hello there! I took a few weeks off this month to get myself back on track with some of my New Years goals. At the start of this year, I mentioned that I want to consume less in 2023. By consuming less, I am falling back in love with the products I’ve tried in the past verses shopping for new things to share. I’ll admit- sharing is a little tough when it doesn’t feel fresh and new. All of the items I am sharing today are part of my beauty routine. From hair to makeup favorites, I have tested and love each one of them. There’s only one new item in this bunch and it has quickly become a staple in my makeup routine.
Color Depositing Mask| Sephora
For years I held off from coloring my hair. I had always worried that I would grow tired of the color and want to switch it up more often. I recently visited the hair salon and touched up my blonde balayage highlights. A week later- I was craving a darker look. Did I Want to head back to the salon? NO!
A few months ago I ran into the same dilemma so I found this product. Moroccanoil is a long time favorite brand for me and they offer this semi permanent color mask in tons of different colors. I wanted a darker look so I reached for the shade cocoa. It is a fun and temporary way to get the look you want without further damaging your hair or breaking your budget. Linked here.
It Cosmetics Nude Glow| Sephora
I always go back and forth during the year deciding on what kind of foundation coverage I want. I love a sheer glow and a full coverage foundation but- what is a girl to do when those choices are so vastly different?
This lightweight CC+ cream is the perfect level of coverage with a dewy glow. I love wearing shades Fair Light and Light Medium depending on the time of year and how much of a (fake) tan I have on my skin. Linked here.
Milani Lip Gloss in Soft Rose| Amazon
I am not a glossy babe by choice. When it comes to lip colors, I much prefer a matte finish. Years ago while shopping at CVS, I found this pretty neutral lipgloss and instantly fell in love with it. The glossy lip is coming back so I am moving this tube to the front of my beauty drawer. It is a subtle pink with a non-sticky gloss formula. Looking for it in store? near me, Walmart carries it but you should be able to find it wherever Milani is sold. Linked here.
Charlotte Tilbury Corrector| Sephora
NEW- I have been loving this color corrector since the day it shipped to my door. I am someone with hereditary dark circles. I have tried EVERYTHING to minimize the deep dark color of them. When I was recently introduced to this products (influenced to buy it via Instagram), I had to know if it would work for me too. The fair peach color corrects without changing the color of my skin. My concealer pairs well over it and I love that it is a lightweight formula- not heavy like other brands. Is it pricy? in my opinion, yes for the size of the product. Does it really work? Yes, 100%.

Superhero Mascara| Sephora
Back in the day, the only mascara I would reach for was from Lo’real. I loved the deep dark black pigment and the way it built up my lashes. Over the years, formulas change and products get discontinued. After years of searching for a suitable replacement, I stumbled upon this on by It Cosmetics. I love the buildable formula and the way it makes my lashes look longer and thicker. My favorite place to shop for it is through QVC. They always have the best deals on bundles. Currently, you can get two for nearly the price of one! Linked here.
