Fierce’s Ten Favorite Beauty-Full Things

Being home with the baby I watch a lot of the OWN network (can we say Dr. Phil!) and her  special last weekend  on her favorite things inspired this post.  Even an admitted product junkie has her share of favorite things, those beauty items that get the prime real estate on my sink.  They come with me on my road trips and, most recently, my stay at the hospital when I had my daughter.  Though it was a little hard, I was able to narrow them down to my ten most favorite things.

Curling Souflee from SheaMoisture

All of Shea Moisture’s Hair Products

Out of all the hair products I’ve used since I started rocking my curls, I come back to my Shea Moisture goodies time and time again.  They’ve become the baseline of what I compare  newer products too and I have yet to find any that are better for my hair than them (The Deep Treatment Masque was the only exception!)

Buxom Lash Mascara

Scooping this up on a Black Friday sale at Sephora, I didn’t realize just how much I would love this mascara.  It gives me the same bold and voluminous lashes as this one from Estee Lauder (and it’s  a little cheaper too!).  When I going for a super glam look, this is my go-to!

Bliss Spa Mask

BlissSpa Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask*

While the facial was super nice and cleared my skin, I enjoy this energizing mask a lot better!  The soothing foaming action is a nice ending to a relaxing shower and does wonders for brightening up my tired skin.

SheerCover Concealer*

I never heard of this brand until it came in an Influenster VoxBox I received awhile back and I really wish I knew about them sooner!  This is still the only concealer that works best at hiding my dark circles and plays nice with my foundations.

Mary Kay’s Sweet Raisin Lip Gloss

A staple in my purse, this shimmery neutral gloss gives my lips the pick me up it needs when on the go.  I don’t even need to have any makeup on – just a swipe of this and I feel put together!

TooFaced Natural Eye Collection

This palette is one of the best splurges I’ve made on makeup. I can’t go a week without using at least two of the neutral shades in this palette.  My two favorites?  Heaven, which works as a soft, brightening shade, and Push Up, a sparkly brown that gives my eyes the right amount of shimmer.

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration moisturizing conditioner

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner

After hearing rave reviews about this conditoner, I bought a bottle a few months ago and this stuff is ah-mazing!  It’s much thicker than the one from Aussie that I’ve  been using religiously and leaves my curls so soft and manageable!  It’s makes detangling my hair in the shower a breeze and gives my hair the moisture it really needs.  At this point in my life, I don’t see myself using anything else!

CoverGirl Press Powder

This powder has been in my collection for over two years and when I need something to give my T-zone the matte look it needs, I turn to this.  The oil control works wonders without leaving my skin looking dull and ashy.

Avon Cream Blush

I’m not a big blush person so when I find something that works, I stick with it!  This blush gives my cheeks the right color it needs, brightening up my complexion and not drying my skin out.  It’s also really easy to use – just roll it on and blend it in with your fingers, which is perfect for busy women like me!

Murad Skin Defense*

Speaking of busy, when my day doesn’t leave room for makeup, I use this moisturizer from Murad to keep my skin hydrated and protected.  The SPF protection is essential, even in the winter time and it doesn’t leave my skin looking shiny or greasy.

  1. I like my Sheer Cover concealer as well! Too bad you have to order a whole set and can’t order the products individually :/

  2. I use Shea Moisture products and have not tried the curling soufflé. Have to give that a try once I use up some of the products I already have.

  3. i’m with you on the Shea Moisture products. I get the best wash ‘n go with the curl enhancing smoothie! I also love the moisture milk and the deep treatment mask. although i add honey to the mask.

    i had to put down the HH because of that blue coloring. I replaced with Dove’s Nutritive Oil Care conditioner. You gotta try it! It has excellent slip too

  4. What a coincidence, I have just started using the same Herbal Essence shampoo/conditioner too and love it. The shampoo is fantastic & hydrates my scalp too and the smell is great, as I haven’t been coping well with the scent thing!!! (I already had a high sense of smell and it’s only heightened since my pregnancy!)

    Your little one is too cute! Thanks so much for your kind words lovely.
    Have a fab December!

  5. I hear a lot of good things about that Herbal Essence conditioner. I am always nervous to try hair products that are not marketed to my hair type, which is a bad habit of mine. It sounds like it would be a great conditioner for cowashing!

  6. that mary kay lip gloss is definitely a great choice. my fav is the pink parfait and cafe au lait.
