I am the type of person to find a product I really love then never use anything else. It took me some time to find the perfect products for me, and I am still searching in some categories. Here are 12 products I adore and use every day.
No 7 Beautifully Matte Foundation- This is seriously the best foundation ever. I have used everything from expensive bb creams to drugstore foundations and this is by far the best I have found. I have combo skin that gets pretty oily throughout the day. I wear this with a little powder and I really only have to add a little more powder towards the end of the day.
Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm- I am all about this balm! I have it in two different colors in which sometimes I mix together. It is super moisturizing for your lips, but it also last quite a while.
Maybelline Super Stay 14Hr Lipstick- This stuff lasts sooo long! I love the colors it comes in too. I will put this on followed by the matte balm and it is perfect, lasts all day! The main reason I like to wear the balm over this is because I feel like this lipstick is sort of drying.
Cocoa Butter Vaseline Lip Jelly- This stuff is amazing. I used to use Burt's Bees, but then I realized that my lips were not getting any better. They were dry and cracked no matter how much I put on. This stuff smells so good and feels great on your lips.
Redken Wool Shake- I use this every once in a while when I feel like my hair needs a little oomf. It is sort of drying, so I don't like to use it every day. It adds a nice texture to your hair and helps it stay volumized.
Beauty Blender Sponge- I bought mine from TJMAXX, but you can get a beauty blender pretty much anywhere. They even sell it at drugstores like Walgreens. This thing makes my face look so flawless. The best part is no more streaky foundation lines!
Secret Clinical Strength Clear Gel Deodorant- Not only does this deodorant work all day (no B.O.!), it smells so good!
Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel- I saw on Pinterest that this gel has the same ingredients as the oh so expensive Smashbox photo finish primer. I have used both and I can tell you that it is the exact same thing. I was looking online to buy the Smashbox primer after using a sample, but when I saw how expensive it was I stopped dead in my tracks. Seriously, for $8 a tube that lasts forever, why not? For real though, go buy some asap. SheaMoisture Coconut and Hibiscus Body Lotion- I love how my skin feels and smells after I use this buttery lotion. I usually buy it when it is on sale though because I go through it pretty quick.
Real Techniques Powder Brush- I saw a couple Beauty Bloggers/Youtubers recommend the Real Techniques range and I had to try one. I seriously love this brush so much, I have been wanting to buy more. It just distributes the powder so evenly, it is better than any powder brush I have ever used.
DKNY Be Delicious Green and Red- I love both of these apple scented perfumes. I really want the Fresh Blossom one. I have the smaller size and they are still going strong after a few years,
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette- I saved the best for last. This is the best investment I have ever made, even though it is not really too expensive compared to other palettes. I literally have used this every single day for about a year and a half. I am about due for a new one. The dark brown shade is perfect for filling in eyebrows, the other colors instantly make me look less tired and feel naturally pretty. If you are looking for a natural toned matte palette, this is it.
What are some of your favorite products?

I've decided to start sharing a photo from my Instagram each week. This week is the President Jackson hates us all edition. I love finding interesting things written on money. So buy something for your crummy friends and go play in traffic.

Lately, I have been trying to get a move on with this whole "art thing." I have so many ideas and I really want to start doing things with them. I am thinking about doing stationary, especially stickers and postcards. Once I finalize some of my designs, I will share them.

Modcloth has such cute swimsuits on sale right now! Also, Modcloth is doing the give $2o get $20 deal for orders over $50. You could get either of these swimsuits for $30, if you use this link!
I love Sailor Moon, I really really do. I need more Sailor Moon accessories, and these necklaces are the bomb.
These winged sandals are so cute. I would feel like a female Hermes wearing these. The best part is they do not have the little in between the toe loop. I hate that.
Speaking of needing more Sailor Moon in my life. These shirts, I need them all.
This etsy shop is so cool! She has a pin for everything, and if you don't see the fan club you belong to, she will make a custom pin! Also, it's run by Kate from Scathingly Brilliant and I love everything she does.
