It’s been a while since my last Recent Beauty Favorites so sharing a few new favorites that I’ve been using on the reg. Hope you’re having a great week thus far!

  1. Avene Akerat Smoothing Exfoliating Cream: If your skin is super thirsty like mine around this time of year, this is the body moisturizer you need. It leaves skin feeling 100% hydrated without any greasy feeling. I rarely use body lotion because I never found one that left my skin feeling normal vs. slick. This  one is a inner in my book.
  2. It Cosmetics Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Mascara: I certainly have my favorite mascaras that are always in my rotation but this one has now been added to that circuit. There’s something about the applicator wand that makes it super easy to achieve stellar-looking lashes. It visibly increases volume and length after just one coat. I layer it up until every lash has been coated three times.
  3. Rusk DeepShine Color Smooth Conditioner: This is one of the best (and most budget friendly) conditioners I’ve used and loved in some time. I was sent it as part of the StyleList Beauty Awards and it came out on top for me in the conditioner category. It preserves color and makes hair extra soft. I pair it with this shampoo and I’ve been loving how the combo makes my hair look & feel.
  4. Lancome Artliner 24H: I’ll be the first to admit that I’m pretty much the worst when it comes to applying liquid eyeliner (I blame my shaky hands) but this new Lancome liner made it much easier. (I also use a credit card to help achieve a more winged look). This liner doesn’t budge and leaves a sort of vinyl-looking finish so it’s dramatic but not too over the top. Perfect for a night out on the town.

I’ve had some major recent beauty finds that I wanted to share today because hey..who doesn’t have a million holiday parties/events/soirees coming up that you need to be prepped for?

  1. DryBar The Chaser Shine Pomade: I had the opportunity to try this styling product as part of StyleList’s beauty awards test runs and I fell in love. It’s a great finishing touch to add texture, that desired “piece-y” look to your hair as well as the perfect amount of shine. Bonus? It also tames fly-aways. This pomade comes highly recommended.
  2. Estee Lauder Pure Color High Intensity Gloss in Hot Cherry: This is the perfect red gloss in my opinion. It’s not over powering or off putting, it’s long lasting and has just the right amount of shine to make this ideal for a nighttime look.
  3. butter LONDON Stiletto Stick Hydrating Heel Balm: Living in New York it’s no surprise that I walk A LOT. Therefore my feet aren’t always the prettiest. But ever since this stick got introduced into my life, I’ve made use of it before bed each night and seen a dramatic difference in the improvement of my heels. Rub this balm in any callused area and by morning you’ll have soft, smooth skin. This is gonna be an even bigger lifesaver come summer.
