If there’s a beauty product that delivers what it promises, I’m all for it. Having a background in magazines, I have a discerning eye for all things beauty. And when a product is reviewed, I am no bones about it! I’m a consumer just like you and don’t want to waste my time or buy something that’s lack luster. Here are some very impressive must-haves that I wanted to share with the #DF readers. Because when it comes to beauty — sharing is caring! Have any questions Tweet @DanaPrigge as always I enjoy connecting with you!
Lashes- Ardell Press on Lashes: While lash extensions are all the rage, I’ve heard a few horror stories. So, here’s a worry free alternative minus the commitment. Press on Lashes. Yes, yes and yes. While some friends of mine were skeptical, after one try they were hooked. These come with pre-adhesive. You literally just press on and go! Tip: cut down to size so the fit is flawless. Usually, I find Ardell Lashes at a local CVS. These look amazing and are comfortable to wear.
Skin- Loreal Age Perfect Cell Renewal Face Oil: The face oil rage is strong. So of course, I was curious. This oil is around $25 so one is able to test it out for a reasonable cost. This oil is incredible. My skin drank it up. After hearing and seeing so many people rave about this on social media, I had to give it a whirl. My skin looks more supple and it didn’t break me out. Contains LHA to help stimulate skin surface cell turnover and essential oils to fortify skin barrier function and health. I found this at my local Ulta.
Eyes- Loreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Eye Cream: Like most people, my eyes are sensitive. It’s been a challenge to find an eye cream that works and is priced well. This Loreal eye cream is so nourishing, I almost can actually feel it working! Which is kind of wild. There also is no heavy scent or fragrance. I like products that are subtle or non-scented. By visiting the Loreal website you can see where they sell this near you. Holy grail find!
Lips- When it comes to your lips Bite Beauty has some of the best products on the market. Start your day off right with the Agave Lip Balm to protect, nourish and hydrate your lips all day long. This formula, made with agave and rare Madagascan Vanilla C02 extract, gives a natural look that also serves as a perfect primer for any lipstick, gloss or liquid lip. The Agave Sugar Lip Scrub cleanses and gently exfoliates, moisturizes, and conditions. A formula packed with exotic oils, brown sugar, pineapple enzymes, raw sugar, and agave syrup creates a foaming scrub sure to soften and hydrate lips. Finally, treat your lips to the ultimate TLC and apply the Agave Lip Mask and leave on overnight for even more intense hydration. Best of all, the collection is perfect for traveling and on-the-go lip care for natural, healthy looking lips this spring and all year long. These are available at Sephora. I have seen a difference in the way my lips look and feel using these. Again, there is little to no scent except the lip scrub but it smells light and delicious!
Smile- When it comes to your smile, it’s important you use good, trust-worthy products to protect and care for your teeth and smile. Imported from Florence Italy and sold at Sephora, this Marvis toothpaste is quickly becoming a favorite part of my routine. My teeth actually feel polished after I use it. This original Marvis formula whitens and protects teeth, freshens breath, and helps prevent tooth decay, tartar, and plaque. The packaging is also adorable and my breath is minty fresh all day long.
Higlight and Glow- I’ve been on an endless search for a highlight and glow powder that delivers a flawless type finish. I found out about this gem and the combo of the powder and brush has been delivering an airbrush type glowy finish to my face! WIN! From the Sephora website: the Neo-Highlighter, a highly pigmented, three-in-one palette for a radiant, multi-dimensional strobe effect that lasts all day. The Neo Highlighter includes the three bestselling Kevyn Aucoin highlighters: Candlelight, Starlight, and Sunlight, blending a soft champagne, gilded rose, and sheer golden powder. It warms and illuminates your skin, allowing for a soft highlight that can be taken from day to night. Just apply it to the cheeks, browbones, and décolleté for the perfect glow. I have the Sahara shade with the Neo Powder brush and I’m really loving this combo! Summer ready.
