Favorite Beauty Finds

Happy Friday dolls! I thought today I would round up some of my favorite beauty finds lately.

1. Hair, Skin, and Nails- It Works

Y'all. This stuff is a game changer for me. I can't remember if I have mentioned this before, but I have Hypothyroidism, which affects a lot of things in your body, but one of those things is your hair. Before I was diagnosed my hair was super thick. But it started to thin, mainly in the front, about 10 years ago (that's actually what prompted me to see the doctor) and over the past year it has thinned even more. 

If you have ever experienced this and maybe even if you haven't I probably don't have to tell you how disheartening and panic-inducing it can be to see more hair than usual coming out when you brush or noticing thinning areas on your head. 

It's a major insecurity for me. I have tried a lot of different things and nothing really seemed to help until I started taking this. I've been taking it for about two months and I am seriously amazed at the difference in my hair thickness. The areas where it was getting really thin is starting to fill in, plus my hair looks shinier and healthier! I'm a fan. 

I do not sell ItWorks products, nor do I plan to. I just love it so much. The link above is to my Distributor's site, but I do not get any kind of kick back or compensation for it. 

2. Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

I got this in my last Birchbox and it's soooo much easier than any liquid liner I've used before! It's like a really fine tipped felt marker, so it's a lot easier to draw an even line and it stays put!

3. Maybelline Great Lash in Brownish Black

This mascara is a classic, super affordable and it just makes my lashes look great. Nothing fancy but I love it!

4. Jelly Pong Pong Glow Getter Luminizer Gel

Another Birchbox find! I use this on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eye to highlight and add a little glow. Sometimes I use a tiny bit on my cheeks too.

5. Benefit Lollibalm Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm

This is a really nice pinkish-nude on me and it feels great on my lips. Sometimes I use it alone, other times I swipe some very subtly shimmery gloss on top.

6. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Influenster sent me Airbrush legs for free to sample. It's definitely not something I would use every day but for special occasions for sure! My sample is the "Light" and when I'm first putting it on it's looks kind of dark (I am super pale)! But as I keep rubbing it in it blends well and it does smooth out my skin tone and gives it a nice glow. I put it on before work the other day (picture below), went though the whole day and even went for a run in a light rain and it stayed put!

Facing the screen, left leg has the Airbrush Legs, right leg is without.
Not making this picture any bigger than it is because I already feel kind of
weird posting a picture of my legs on the internets. 
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think? 

Oh and funnies. I have to. 

I don't know why these things make me laugh so hard but they just do. 

Ok, not everyone will probably recognize this next one, but I know Kristen will!

The bottom elephant- SO me. I cannot with mornings. Unless I don't have to go to work and then somehow I magically love mornings...

I just want to know what kind of party these people were having: 

Have a fabulous weekend, lovelies! 


  1. That mascara really is a classic and I've heard that a lot of makeup artists use it on celebrities!! Oh gosh - I haven't had mr.pibb in YEARS now I'm craving it! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. Ok I officially need to try the Hair Skin & Nails! And I'm hoping to pick up that Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs this weekend - such a fabulous product!

  3. I love that little elephant meme! I am a huge huge love of all things benefit and the lolli balm is no exception. Great picks girl!


  4. I keep hearing great things about that hair, skin, and nails product! everyone seems to love it!

  5. Haha, I'm totally the happy elephant -- such a morning person!! That Mr. Pibb meme made me laugh out loud!! Have a good weekend girl!

  6. I love great lash mascara, it's such a great product. Oh my word, your funnies had me rolling today.

  7. I used to be obsessed with that mascara. It is still a great choice. The airbrush legs thing is so perfect!!! I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I will have to check out that lip stuff. Hope you have a great weekend!

  8. The second elephant is definitely me in the morning. I love the Airbrush legs lotion now that I've tried it out.

  9. I received the Airbrush legs from Influenster, too, and actually kinda liked it. Like you said, I wouldn't use it everyday, but I was impressed with how well it stayed on. If you are looking for a drugstore version of that liquid liner (I hate having to wait for shipping if I don't realize I'm out of something haha), L'Oreal makes almost an identical one called The Blackbuster. I love it and use it all the time!

  10. I've been wanting to try a Lolli-balm! That one is my favorite.

  11. I've tried the HSN still and it didn't work for me, I was sooo sad! But I've seen some amazing results from other people!! I want to try that airbrush leg stuff! Seeing as winter is coming and I'm getting whiter and whiter... haha

  12. I'm a big fan of Liquid Eyeliner. I was able to try the Airbrush legs too, but wasn't a big fan of it. Have a great weekend.

  13. I LOVE great lash mascara! It is the best! I hope you have a great weekend!

  14. I love the airbrushed legs too! I want to try that face highlighter! It sounds great!

  15. I also suffer from hypothyroidism and the hardest part has definitely been the thinning of my hair. I have always had super fine hair but now with the thin-ness it makes styling or even wearing my hair down incredibly nerve wracking and frustrating. I have to give this stuff a try after hearing your results.

  16. I used the airbrush legs for a wedding this summer and like you was kind of nervous about it at first but it did even out okay. I'd use it again!

  17. I used to use that mascara! It's definitely a good one.

  18. You gotta love Maybelline Great Last! It has never failed me! :)

  19. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA I have never laughed harder in my life. shelves! in a closet!! absolutely revolutionary ;)
    meanwhile, i am so glad you said you love the it works stuff but you don't get paid for it. it's hard to believe people when they are selling it, you know? but i have been curious so i might look into it.
    that mascara is definitely a classic! i love it.

  20. I need to try that Benefit Lip Tint! I keep thinking of buying it and haven't pulled the trigger yet!

  21. The Dr. Pepper plus all the off-brands cracked me up! They don't sell Dr. Pepper in Malaysia usually, but every once in a while, this one store will get a shipment in, and my Dad will stock up. So you can see why I have a soft spot for Dr. Pepper jokes. :)
