My Beauty Favorites

Fabulous Finds Friday

Hey, guys! Welcome back to Talk Fabulous! 
Today, we’re doing something a little different for Fabulous Finds Friday. Over the past few months, many beauty You Tubers have been talking about their ride or die makeup. Basically, that’s a fancy way of saying the products that they absolutely cannot live without. Since I’m always late for the party, now seemed like a good time to share my favorites with you. Again, these are items that I repurchase over and over and rush to the store when I run out of them. Let’s get into it, shall we?
Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer: $5-$10
As a super fair skinned girl, I love this self-tanner!  My legs will not tan and, as we all know, I love to wear skirts and dresses in the summer.  This lotion is perfect as it goes on easily, doesn’t stain your hands, and will gradually give you that perfect summer glow.  It’s nearly impossible to mess up this application.  If you haven’t already tried this, I highly suggest you run out and pick one up right now (or after you finish reading this blog post 😁).  You can find it on Amazon here.

Dry Shampoo
Dry Shampoo is a must-have for me.  Sometimes I just flat out don’t have the time or the desire to wash my hair.  For those lazy days (which, let’s be honest, happen quite often) dry shampoo is the perfect refresher.  I have a few favorites. Check out my dry shampoo review here.  I usually switch between the Suave Professionals Refresh and Revive Dry Shampoo and Dove Refresh + Care Dry Shampoo.  Either one is great.  Sometimes I even keep both on hand!
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer: $5
This was the first drugstore primer I ever tried.  I gotta say, I’ve never looked back.  It’s so good!  Plus, it’s so inexpensive!  That’s a win-win!  This is something that can always be found in my collection.  It does just what it claims, blurs pores and smooths the skin.  I haven’t found a foundation yet that doesn’t look nice on top of this primer. Love it!  Find it on Amazon here.  Check out my full primer review here.

Maybelline Cover Stick Concealer in Yellow: $5
I talked about my love of this product in my Color Corrector Review (here) so I won’t go into too much detail again.  If you’re part of the dark under eye club, then this product is for you!  It’s amazing at covering up those dark raccoon eyes we all get from time to time.  This product comes in a variety of colors, which I’m sure also work great.  I’ve never tried them, though, as I’m concerned about putting cream products on my already oily skin.  If you’ve tried out the other colors, let us know what you think in the comments below!  Pick it up on Amazon here

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles Treatment Concealer: $5
That’s a mouthful and also I’m noticing a trend.  I promise I’m not sponsored in any way by Maybelline.  But, Maybelline, if you’re listening, I love love love your products!!!  Oh, right, the concealer.  This concealer is fabulous!  I’ve tried out countless others and I always go back to this one.  The applicator makes the product so easy to apply and it covers well without being cakey or too heavy.  It’s just an awesome product.  When you run out to buy the Jergens Natural Glow, pick this up too!  Find it on Amazon here.

e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation: $6
Look!  A non-Maybelline favorite.  It’s basically a miracle!  In all seriousness, though, this is a great foundation.  To me, this beats out foundations that are 2-3x more expensive.  I get so many compliments on my skin when I wear this.  It has great coverage and truly makes your skin look flawless.  For 6 bucks, you can’t beat that!  Check out their color selection here.
Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder: $6
Can you tell I have a slight crush on all things Maybelline? It’s true and this powder is no exception.  I know, I know, powders are boring, but they’re oh so important.  You can’t have a flawless look without a good setting powder.  This powder certainly delivers on that (find it here).  It’s creamy, glides on smooth, and has just the right amount of coverage without being cakey.  I’ve also come to adore the round sponge applicator included in the product.  In fact, I’ve started applying all my pressed powders with a round sponge.  It really allows you to press the product into your skin for that extra flawless finish.  I first heard Rachel from RachhLoves talk about applying powder this way, so I gave it a shot.  It really works wonders!
Looking at my list I realized all these products are basics.  There’s good reason for that.  If you don’t have a good base, the rest of your look will suffer.  You can always experiment with different eye shadows, blushes, lipsticks, etc., but it’s so nice when you have that one product (or products) that you know won’t let you down.  
What are some of your can’t-live-without favorite products?  
That’s all for today.  See you guys in my next post!
P.S.  Stay tuned tomorrow for a special surprise!
