Three Favorite Makeup Products

First off, full disclosure, I purchased all three of these products myself. This review is sponsored by no one other than my own personal pocketbook. I truly love these products and just wanted to tell you about them!

All of the sudden, Beauty Balms, or bb creams, are all over the place! Of course I had to try one! The general idea is that a bb cream is a moisturizer, sunscreen, and treatment serum, that also hides imperfections.

I tried the Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm, purchased from Sephora for $32. I've been wearing it as my foundation, applied with a damp foundation brush, and I love it. This only comes in one shade, and just seems to be perfect for my skintone (light/fair, with yellow undertones).

For a finishing powder, I am LOVING Too Faced Primed & Poreless. Absolutely loving it. Also purchased from Sephora, this is $28. I have somewhat oily skin, and I used to have to blot or re-powder my t-zone mulitple times a day. Somehow this powder seems to magically solve that problem, and I don't re-powder AT ALL. Love that.

Sometimes in the summer I don't want to mess with eye shadow application, but still want something on my lids. I have found that my favorite primer, Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight, looks wonderful on it's on. It's a light shimmery wash of cream shadow that lasts all day. So pretty! (Purchased from Sephora for $18.)

Have you found any new makeup this summer that you are loving?

Oh, I soooooo need me some of that Beauty Balms cream. I got plenty of imperfections to cover up and need all the help I can get!

I love Too Faced products. The primed and poreless powder and primer are just brilliant!! I also love their bronzer. Another item I have fallen in love with this summer is the Benefits box of powder in "sugar bomb". It adds some great color for the summer.

Sasha, first, thanks for stopping by my blog this morning -- you are right, the opportunity for my boys to be in theater is incredible! We love it! Now, thanks for this post...I can't wait to look for these products. But I have a question -- what about eye-liner and mascara? I have tried crazy-cheap and crazy-expensive and everything in between and can't find any I!! :)
