Beauty Haul: What To Buy For Your Shelf Now

We know this line all too well: "I should stop buying makeup." Pretty sure you've said this to yourself a dozen times before, but only ended up back in the check-out counter with your brand new stash of finds. Well, we don't blame you, and as they say, there's no shame in the beauty game! Finding ourselves amazed at the latest lip shade or getting that itch to buy new highlighter is something that we encounter on a daily basis, and we know it's all part of our quest to be our better selves!

While makeup and other beauty products may seem shallow or vain, we beg to disagree! Makeup and taking care of ourselves in general is one of the best keys to unlocking our self-confidence, and whether we choose to do that with makeup or without, is entirely our choice! With that, we present to your our finds for the week, items we know we'll be rushing to the mall for, AKA your newest excuse to #treatyoself!

Gigi Hadid for Maybelline Jetsetter Palette

It's safe to say that I would buy anything Gigi Hadid puts out in the market. Girl looks fiiiine! And while this collection already hit stores last month, I'd personally recommend her Jetsetter palette to anyone looking for a semi-splurge. It's complete with concealer, eye shadow, highlighter, blush, lip color, and a mini mascara tube! Just simply looking at it makes you feel pretty already! At Watsons

 

Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara

You had me at "epic". If it's about eyelashes, it's got to be nothing less, especially for women like me who have the finest possible lashes. The latest from Max Factor promises to coat every eye lash with jet black volume with its specially designed tip meant to reach the smallest of hairs. At Watsons

 

St. Ives Exfoliate & Nourish Oil Scrubs in Apricot and Coconut Oil

A cool new way to keep your skin supple and healthy is by way of nourishing oils and by exfoliation. Our bodies produce dry skin every single day, but this can easily be sloughed off with the right exfoliant, and made healthy again with your favorite lotion, body cream, or nourishing oils such as this new line from cult drug store brand St. Ives.

 

Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink Lip Color

A gloomy day can easily be turned around with some coffee, good music, and a pop of color on your lips. Stop reaching out for those nudes, it's time to switch things up with a lively color like Maybelline's latest lip ink—highly pigmented lip color that does the job in one to two swipes! At leading department stores

 

M.A.C Gently Off Wipes + Micellar Water

Now this is something that's not a trend for sure. Taking off your makeup at the end of the day is sort of ceremonial in the sense that you cannot fully take care of your skin unless you've removed every trace of it. M.A.C joins in on the Micellar Water bandwagon via these pack and go wipes you can literally use anywhere. Doesn't hurt that the packaging's cute too!

Human Nature Strengthening Plus Conditioner with Rosemary 

Ditch the conditioner that's doing nothing for your locks and switch to one that actually has something good to offer. Human Nature's creamy conditioner nourishes your strand with all-natural ingredients including rosemary said to energize your hair from root to tip.

 

Dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift

Now this is one thing to get STAT. It is said to help energize the area to eliminate visible signs of stress. Now if you're one of the #blessed beings that don't have stress problems showing on their skin, then go ahead and celebrate. But for the rest of us, let's collectively thank God for the gift of eye cream. Dermalogica is a top choice in this category!
