My Top 5 Beauty Products : January

I love trying new products, foods, getting new clothes...most of all beauty products. I swoon over the latest liquid lip products and could just die with excitement over new eye shadow pallets! 

Granted, wanting and purchasing these items can get out of hand. I can almost assure you that the Hubs would cut me off financially.  I would have the best brows on the streets though! {sigh} 

As a mom, a busy one at that, I think it's important to still look put together. Whether it's a little lipstick, mascara, maybe liven up those cheeks with a dash of blush. Sometime last year, I decided it was time to get back to "me". I felt sloppy and undone. It's so easy to forget about yourself when you are trying to get dinner prepared or think of what your kiddo needs for snack the next day. It's so easy to throw on clothes in the morning, put your hair in a bun and call it a day. And there's nothing wrong with that, I do it too. It's also easy to spend an extra 5-10 minutes to make me feel pretty :)

Lately, there have been quite a few things that I've gravitated towards. Besides our Family Favorites, I thought it would be fun to start a "Fabulous 5" series. I share with you my top 5 beauty and/or fashion favorites for the month.

So, let's get to it! 

1. Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation : this foundation is amazing! I've been looking for a good foundation that didn't break the bank. Mainly a drugstore foundation that I could wear on a day to day basis. This. is. it. It is medium to full coverage and doesn't clog pores. I'm oily around my t-zone and it keeps me matte during wear. LOVE! 

2. Aquaphor Lip Repair : so good for your lips. I am addicted to balms. I have been using this religiously for the past month. With the colder days among us, I've felt my lips were getting super dry. This takes care of it. I exfoliate my lips every morning and follow by this balm. Keeps them smooth all day! 

3. ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper : for $6.00, you can't beat this! It is super pigmented and long wearing. This has been a go-to lip color this past month. 

4. Urban Decay Perversion Mascara : I received this as a gift for my birthday...and love it! I usually have 2-3 mascaras that I use at once and this is the one I've been reaching for on the daily. Gives my lashes lots of volume without clumps. They have travel versions of this if you don't want to splurge for the full size...I would definitely give it a try though!

5. Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Eyeshadow Palette :  this is an absolute MUST in your makeup collection! I feel like this is perfect for moms because there is no shimmer, all of the shadows are matte. It makes it look effortless while still put together. Great for everyday. My favorite shadows in this palette are Smarty Pants and Charmer.
