My Favorite Beauty Products

For those of you who know me personally, you know that I love my sephora products. Ever since they opened one in the mall near my house I have been pretty obsessed with their accessories and beauty items. These 10 choices are some of the items I have grown to love over time. I have experimented with different products/accessories for a long time, and some were just not for me, but there are quite a few items that I buy on a regular basis and would be lost without. If you shop at sephora I recommend getting yourself a VIB card, not only do you score points for every purchase but you get a free gift on your birthday, and when you accumulate points, you get free stuff! Who doesn't love free stuff, let's be honest- oh yeah...and the samples are always good too ;]

1{Yves Saint Laurent- Touche Eclat } - Best under eye concealer you could ever want, a bit pricey but well worth it..If you have tired eyes like me , this can be a huge lifesaver..You just use the pen to apply it anywhere you see uneven skin tone and voila, it's covered up! The pen is extremely easy to use and apply, no messy residue.

2 {Bad Gal Lash} - If you like really curled eyelashes, then this mascara will really work for you. The thick over sized brush provides maximum length and volume!

3 {Sephora Synthetic Angled Brush} This brush is the best! The range of the brush is amazing, and big so you're not spending the whole day trying to blend your makeup onto your face. Again, a bit pricey but it's extremely durable and will last you a long time. It was also designed by a French designer, who is an expert on contemporary utilitarian design :)

4 {Phytonectar Ultra Nourishing Shampoo} Perfect for damaged or over processed hair, and smells great too!

5 {Lancome Star Bronzer Poudre Soleil} I use this product in Bronze Lumiere which is the only color sephora offers at this time. I really hate when bronzers have glitter in them, and I try to avoid that at all costs. This bronzer provides a sun kissed glow without the glittery finish. The powder is really light, so it doesn't cake on which adds to the natural glow.

6 {Hello Kitty Graffiti Bag} This bag is a new addition to the website, along with some other hello kitty products. This is just another makeup bag, but I love hello kitty so that's why I added it to the list, because it's cute!

7 {Too Faced Matte Shadow Collection} I love the tones in this eye shadow palette.. Perfect for a day at work, or a night out with a smokey eye...The colors are easy to blend and they even offer a little booklet with step by step instructions on how to get the best matte look.

8 {Sephora Collection Brush Cleaner} This product goes hand in hand with #3. You should always keep your brushes clean and fresh. This spray dries in less than a minute and is an antibacterial. They make ones you can carry on you, or bigger bottles you can keep at home...It's important to clean the items we use daily, in order to avoid spreading bacteria.

9 {Balmshell Lip Gloss} Let me start off by saying that I HATE lip gloss..  I don't like the sticky feeling, and I hate when my hair gets stuck in it...That being said, I love balmshell lip gloss...The sheer milky pink color goes on without getting sticky, and looks natural, but adds a light pink to your lips. It's nice if you like wearing gloss, but don't like "over doing" it.

10 {Rosebud Salve} Perfect for dry lips, it even helps with minor cuts, and burns! My favorite part about it is the rose scent that emanates from it once you use it.

I hope you all enjoyed my picks, these are just some of the items I use on a weekly basis...Do you have any sephora favorites? If so what are they? I love learning about new products!
