Are you looking for beauty products that will steal your heart?
Here are some of my top beauty picks that are getting this year off to a great start.
Beauty & Pin-ups Fierce Firm Hold Finishing Spray
Thankful that I happened upon the haircare line Beauty & Pin-ups at the Voodoo Vixen sample sale here in LA last month. For a pinup loving gal, the packaging stole my heart. The artwork is so adorable and I love to display my bottle on the counter and sometimes my dresser. I currently own the Fierce Firm Hold and Finishing Spray. It protects and strengthens hair due to its Argan Oil and Vitamin B5 properties. It is a 24 hour hold spray that helps keep frizz at bay. (note, this product contains wheat.)
The Beauty & Pin=ups line consist of seven haircare products ranging from shampoo to thermal protecant.
I admire that they are partnered with and donate part of their proceeds to Best Buddies, an organization helping people with intellectual and development disabilities. 🙂
Shop Beauty & Pinups
The L’OREAL True Match LUMI Cushion foundation is getting a lot of attention lately. And I was finally able to experience why. It’s incredible! Picked it up at Target for about $13. And it’s so worth it. It’s a unique way of experiencing foundation – it’s packaged in a similar way that some BB creams are – it’s comes in a compact where the foundation lives in a sponge. I was a teeny bit skeptical that it would live up to the hype. To my pleasant surprise, I found that it gives such a flawless and naturally looking finish.
I don’t really use the sponge that it comes with, that’s not to say it doesn’t work – it’s just that I prefer to apply the foundation with a damp BeautyBlender…but that’s just me.
I highly recommend this foundation to anyone. Especially folks that want a natural looking finish with the coverage, or those who rarely wear makeup and are looking for a simple solution for evening out their skin tone.
3 So I had a pretty hard time narrowing it down as to which of the latest Physicians Formula products I would talk about in this post. You may have seen on my snapchat that I attended a private special event hosted by Physicians Formula about a week or so ago. Myself and my other fellow bloggers in attendance were sent home with all the latest goodies. Plenty of products to rave about – glittery and colorful stuff – but the Argan Wear collection stood out to me. Yes, the packaging is gorgeous. However, what I admire the most is that these products contain argan oil which is beneficial to the skin in so many ways. They are gluten-free, paraben-free, and cruelty free. I’ve personally been wearing the lip oil for a full day and am enjoying that my lips feel moisturized and flushed with a pinkish color. I’m also looking forward to wearing the Kajal eyeliner and BB Concealer. Physicians Formula also included an Argan Oil primer in this collection that comes in a spray formula that I think is pretty cool.
You can find the Physicians Formula Argan Wear collection at retailers like Target, Walgreen’s, and Rite-Aid. Hooray for cool drugstore makeup. 😉
Each product is under $20

Tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner
You will not be disappointed with theTarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner. It is the best version of a gel liner that ever lived. Who speaks so highly about an eyeliner? This girl I’ve tried various eyeliners in my lifetime from the chola style days- to raver days- to current pinup life, and none have delivered like this one. It comes in a little tube and is accompanied by an angled liner brush. It applies effortlessly and dries matte. Doesn’t get flaky like you might think, and it doesn’t budge when my eyes get watery (a.k.a crying). Thank you Tarte for making this waterproof!
Love that this eyeliner is ideal for personal and professional use.
I ordered this from Sephora.com. It’s also available on Tarte.com
EmerginC Scientific Organics Blue Poppy Enzyme Polish
EmerginC Scientific Organics Blue Poppy Enzyme Polish – c/o EmerginC Scientific Organics
Looking for a an exfoliating face scrub with organic ingredients that removes dead skin cells, evens out skin tone and texture, and brighten the complexion? EmerginC Scientific Organics Blue Poppy Enzyme Polish does just that with its harmonious blend of raspberry, mushroom, papaya, blue poppy, and earth and tea tree leaf powder.
For best results use 1-3 times a week.
It leans bit towards the high end side of your usual exfoliator. But if you can splurge, I strongly encourage you to do so.
