2018 top beauty products

vixen lipstick

So 2018 is obviously not over. But we’re more than half way there and I’ve discovered some great beauty products I want to share with you. Ready?

Here we go.


Sonia Roselli Sexapeel


Sonia Roselli is a pro makeup artist based out of Chicago. And like so many of my favorite pro artists she believes in the magic of skin prep. She’s created an exceptional line of skincare which includes Sexapeel an instant exfoliation spray. It’s pretty wonderful the way you begin to see all the dead skin come off. I’m pretty amazed by it and really do need to use it more often, because when I do my skin thanks me for revealing a more revitalized glow. I’m also a fan of her Waterbalm moisturizer, and excited to try her water oil.

Sonia Roselli Sexapeel – $42


Arbonne RE9 Prepwork Gel Eye Masks

Arbonne gel eye masks – c/o Arbonne

Arbonne’s gel eye masks are so soothing. They have a jelly like consistency, so I prefer to store them in the fridge before use. Some of the key ingredients are Vitamin C, strawberry, blackberry, and acai extracts, and caffeine. Another thing you might love about Arbonne’s gel eye masks is that they are vegan and certified gluten-free. There are 60 eye masks in each container.

Arbonne Gel Eye Masks – $50


Vixen by Micheline Pitt lipstick and lipliner

vixen lipstick

Of course Micheline Pitt’s Vixen collaboration with Julie Hewett made it to this list. Like so many others I am obsessed with red lipstick. But I’m quite particular…I’ve probably mentioned this before – it has to sway more to the blue-tone. And it totally delivers – and has a velvety creme finish. Love it!

Vixen lipstick and lipliner – $16 and $24


Volition Beauty Sunscreen

Volition Beauty Prismatic Luminizing Shield – c/o Volition Beauty

Who else is a firm believer in spf?  Volition beauty has this new luscious and luxe spf. It feels weightless and has a soft and subtle scent. It’s packed with goodness like kiwi fruit water and licorice extract to brighten skin and diminish dark spots. (Yes, please!) It leaves a luminous glow and doesn’t have that annoying flashback or white residue. So if you’re looking for luxury in a bottle that’s actually good for you…this is it. 🙌🏼💕
I’m so excited that this product is already selling out…because full disclosure, my friend and fellow femme @dearjonesey is the innovator behind Prismatic Luminizing Shield SPF 50. She’s a talented babe and I am so happy for her. 💖💖💖
Protect your skin and support a fellow femme – pick it up at @sephora 💋

Sephora – $35


Mario Badescu Lip Balm

Mario Badescu Lip Balm

Did you think that you couldn’t ever love a lip balm more than Mario Badescu’s lip wax? yeah, same here. It cured my chapped lips overnight. So when Mario Badescu sent me their new squeeze tube lip balm, I was super excited to try it…and I must say I am quite impressed. Probably the magic of the coconut oil, shea butter, Vitamin E and it’s other wonders. And at $8 a pop this baby will last a long time. 🙂 Order at MarioBadescu or pick up at Urban Outfitters.

Mario Badescu lip balm – $8

Neutrogena products – c/o Neutrogena

Ok, so this sunscreen from Neutrogena is life. I’ll keep it real, if you are super sweaty or doing water sports – this does the damn thing. We love it in our household and it is our new favorite. And it’s always a plus when you can get it at the drugstore. 🙂

Target – $10

Marilyn Monroe Sheet Masks

LA Fresh eco-friendly beauty products have been on my radar and in my makeup bag for quite some time. I happened upon their limited edition Marilyn Monroe sheet masks at the 99 of all places! So I picked up the hydrating, rejuvenation, and brightening masks. Talk about a score. Keep your eye out at your local 99 cents only store. Or you can stalk LA Fresh’s website for their other sheet masks and great beauty products.

LA Fresh (similar sheet masks) – $12-$19


MAC lipsticks

Sometimes I assume that everyone knows about MAC’s back to MAC program. But if you don’t, here’s how it works:
Collect six original packaging MAC beauty containers. Take them to the MAC store for recycling and you’ll be able to take home a brand new lipgloss, lipstick, or eyeshadow of your choice. Fun, huh?! That’s how I earned the pretties pictured above.

MAC lipstick – $18.50


Thanks for hanging out. Have you tried any of the products mentioned? Which ones are you most intrigued by?
