Beauty Haul: High End and Drugstore Products


Top: Shein (only $14), Similar Nordstrom / Shorts: Vestique

Hey y'all, where did the weekend go?! The only reason I have motivation today is because The Bachelor finale is tonight, which is an excuse to have a cheese board and wine! This is a great cure to any Monday. Even though I haven't been the biggest fan of this season, I always look forward to the finale! Is this going to be the most dramatic finale ever?!

I have recently heard of some new beauty products, so I wanted to test them out and share my thoughts! The products are a mix of high end and drugstore. All product links are underlined and I have also linked them at the end of the blog!

High End Products

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

Everyone has been in LOVE with this rosewater facial spray, so I finally tried it out. Now I know the reason! This misting spray is SO refreshing! It gives your face a boost of hydration and a pick me up. I spray it on my face with or without makeup and you can even use it to set your makeup. The linked product is a perfect travel size and can easily fit in your purse! Also, it is only $7!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Highlighter

Hands down best highlighter I have ever tried! Amrezy is a girl I have been following on Instagram for years and her makeup is always on point, especially her SHINE! She calls this highlighter "sun in a compact" and I promise you will be shining brighter than the sun. It gives you the perfect glow! The swatch on my hand is from just one swipe! I apply this on my cheek bones, cupids bow, and tip of the nose. You can only purchase it off the website, so I have linked it HERE. It is a limited edition, so don't miss out!

TARTE Maracuja C-brighter Eye Treatment

This eye cream has become one of my holy grail products! It is a daily eye cream that hydrates, tightens, and brightens your skin. It also corrects fine lines and wrinkles and I already see a difference. I use this as a moisturizer/primer under my concealer. It helps the concealer lay flat on the skin. This is a high end product, but the price is so worth it!

Drugstore Products

L'Oreal True Match LUMI Glotion

This is a brand new L'Oreal True Match product, so I wanted to try it out. I am a big fan of most True Match products (the foundation is my favorite!). This product is basically a highlighting lotion, but also has a tint of color. I LOVE this because during the summer you could just wear the "glotion" and be good to go! It comes in 4 shades from Fair to Deep. I purchased the color medium (903). I rub this product on my cheek bones before I put on my foundation. It is only $12, so if you want a natural looking shine, then I highly recommend this product!

Milani Keep it Smooth Luxe Lip Treatment

This is my go-to lip treatment! This will be my second time purchasing it, because I am obsessed! It keeps your lips so moisturized and smooth! This color is called sugar smooth. They also have a lip scrub, which I haven't tried yet! You can find this product at any CVS or Target and it is only $7.69.

Maybelline Lasting Drama Light Liner

Maybelline's new eyeliner is just $5! Each shade has a glittery tint to it, so it is more of a product for a night out. It comes in 5 shades. I bought the shade Shiny Bronze and I plan to try White Luster. You can apply this as regular eye liner on your upper lash line. The main reason I purchased it is because I love to put shiny eye shadow on the inner corner of my eye, so this makes it so much easier! I promise this will make your eyes POP!

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink

Maybelline just came out with a new line of matte liquid lipsticks and I am not the biggest fan. I found it to be super sticky. My lips were getting stuck together! Also, the shade was way too light for my skin tone (Shade: Driver), but on a positive note, they have a wide variety of colors! I will say that the name "Super Stay" holds true. It does not come off. I was going to the gym after I tried it, and I couldn't get it off, so I had to be THAT girl who looks all dolled up for the gym LOL.

Click any picture above and it will take you directly to the website! I am pretty much obsessed with makeup and trying new products. Let me know if there is anything specific you would like for me to talk about (concealer, foundation)! Feel free to ask me any questions regarding any of these products and I will hopefully have an answer! Now it is time to go see who Arie picks on The Bachelor!
