Yes, beauty is skin deep, but we all love things that make us feel our best. Whether it's beauty products or inspirational books, we each have our guilty pleasures!
With the presence of social media today, it can get overwhelming to figure out which products to splurge on. TikTok trends have taken influencer marketing to the next level with overnight sell-outs, new products going viral every other day, finding out new tips and tricks when it comes to your beauty routine and so much more. See what we mean when we say that it's challenging to keep up with current trends? Sometimes we are equally perplexed!
Naturally, we had to test these things out for ourselves to see what the hype is all about. So much to test, and so little time. But we did it! These past few months, we've slathered skincare products, experimented with new cosmetic releases (hello Rare Beauty highlighters, we see you! ), spritzed perfumes, and the list goes on. It was all worth it though now that we get to share our findings with you!
I guess the burning question now is: what did we LOVE?
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops
This multipurpose serum offers a radiance that rivals highlighters. The lightweight solution contains hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, which help plump and balance out skin tone.
How to use: I'll massage a few pumps into my skin before applying foundation to get a flawless and radiant finish. If I’m feeling a little fancy, I’ll also mix it with my foundation of choice and it gives me the most amazing glow!
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush
If you’re in the TikTok community like the rest of us, you probably have seen these blushes way too many times. Available in multiple shades and finishes (matte and radiant), the blushes are definitely one of our top favorites! One thing to take note though, these babies are pigmented! So a little goes a long way!
How to use: Dap one dot on each cheek and blend it using a brush, beauty sponge, or even your fingers. I prefer using my fingers as the heat from my fingers tends to melt the product into my skin giving a more flawless finish.
Libre Le Parfum
All it took was one spritz and I was hooked! The classic boss babe, IT girl perfume. This is a powerful and flowery feminine scent for women who live by their own rules. It combines the sensuality of Moroccan orange blossom with French lavender essence, a daring note of musk accord, and other exotic scents to create a really distinctive fragrance. Trust me when I say every single time I put this on, I receive so many compliments!
How to use: Spray on the neck and wrist after showering and before heading out.
Supergoop! Every. Single. Face. Watery Lotion SPF 50
SPF is probably the most hyped product of 2022 and we see why! It helps protect our skin from harmful UV rays and prevents premature aging. I'm particular about my SPF since it's the one thing that stays the same in my skincare regimen, and this year, Supergoop's new high-protection sunscreen won me over. As a chemical sunscreen, it doesn't leave a white residue and blends well into my face and neck thanks to its watery consistency.
How to use: Apply all over the face and neck as your last skincare step. Make sure to reapply every 2 hours!
Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother
I mean this list wouldn’t be complete without a hair care product, right? My favorite? It has to be the Olaplex bond smoother, it really is as excellent as everyone says. I have healthy and straight hair but occasionally it needs some additional TLC. This nourishing cream helps my hair feel silky and smooth. Goodbye, bad frizzy hair days!
How to use: Massage this onto the ends of your hair after towel drying it and bam! You’re ready to flaunt those glorious new locks!
That's all from us today! We still make it a point to try out new products every now and then so make sure to be on the lookout for our latest updates. Happy shopping!
