5 Beauty Favorites

Over the past couple of months, I have tried out some new beauty/bath products, and wanted to share some of them that I absolutely LOVE and would definitely recommend. 
If you are in the market for any of these items, you must try them out!  You will not be disappointed!

1. Pixie Eye Bright Liner No.1 in Nude:
$16 from Target.
This creamy water-line eyeliner is so amazing.  It instantly brightens your eyes and makes them appear bigger, whiter, and more awake.  I use it on the inner corners of my eyes, on the water lines, and I have received so many compliments on my eyes, and how I look "so awake", after I started using this!
It is a little pricey, but well worth it, because you only need a tiny bit to make a big difference.
(There are other nude eyeliners out there, but this one is proven SAFE on your water line.)


2. Tarte Cheek Stain in Flush:
$30 from Sephora (comes in many colors)
Water-based gel blush gives that perfect "flushed" look that is great for summer.  I love it because it makes my cheeks look dewy and glowy, but not wet.  Great for the "no-makeup" look, because it goes on very naturally and does not have the finish that powder blush would give.
Several of my college BFFs have sworn by this, and I am finally on the bandwagon, and do not plan on getting off of it :) 

3. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deeeep Conditioner:
$3 from Drugstores
This fortifying, deep conditioner works wonders for dry and damaged hair.  It makes hair feel silky and smooth, and smells amazing.  I use this about once a week, and a little goes a long way.

4. EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit:
$3 from Drugstores
95% Organic, 100% Natural, this lip balm is long-lasting, moisturizing, smooth, and so easy to apply.  Honestly, the adorable packaging was enough to make me want to buy this,, and I am SO glad that I did.  The Summer Fruit scent is incredible, I seriously want to take a bite out of it every time I apply it :)
Also comes in: Lemon drop, Honeydew, Mint, and Tangerine.

5. Neutrogena Foaming Scrub Pink Grapefruit
$6 from Target (and drugstores)
This is a wonderful face wash/scrub that I recently picked up, and I really like it. 
It feels great on the skin while washing, the exfoliating beads are really tiny and gentle.
It says that it clears up acne, which I'm not sure about, but it leaves my skin feeling very clean and smooth.  
And it smells JUST like grapefruit, which I love :)


Are there any beauty/bath products you have been loving lately?  Have you tried any of these that I mentioned?

Happy weekend!!

The packaging of the EOS Lip Balm is sooooo cute. I hope they have this available here, but I doubt it. It is super cute and I want one though. =)
