I have a few new favorites in my beauty bag to share with you this month. I was finding that my eyeshadow was creeping off my lids and that my eyelids were not the smooth soft ones of my youth. I started to look around for something that would hold the shadow in place and minimize that crepe-y skin and started to use Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer. It is a really great product and does exactly what I was looking for. I will do a little show and tell one of these days but, know that if you get it you need to gently apply it to your lid and wait about 30 seconds for it to set before applying your eyeshadow. It is a game changer for me.
I do not wear lipstick and was on the hunt for a lip pencil to wear under my lipgloss that would give me a little more color and staying power through the day. I have long been a fan of Bite Beauty and tried our their new Lip Pencil, I found a really pretty shade that gives me a just enough color and it works really well under a gloss. Win win!
If you have been following along, you know I love my Honey Bronze Highlightening Dome! It is the best and so easy to roll high on my cheek bones and right under my brow. Blend with my fingertips and go! This is a must have as far as I am concerned.
I am giving the Somme Institute Reset Restructuring Cream a try and am hoping it does what its description says: A cream that transforms facial skin that is lax and wrinkled, leaving it tight, smooth and youthful. Who doesn’t want that? And check out their really cool mobile travel kit which is chic and useful!
Lastly, I am always picking up a new gloss and am using the Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Lip Gloss. I really like the texture and how it goes on. There are a ton of shades but I picked a neutral sheer color that has a little sparkle. I may need to take another look and grab another shade..
Have any fabulous products you are using? Please share, I am always on the look out!

[…] Lastly, I will dab a little of the Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer on each eyelid so that my eye make up will not get into the crevices of my eyelids and make my skin look old and dry. (see more about it here) […]
