The beauty world is vast and there are thousands upon thousands of products out there to test and try out. As a result, it’s likely that there are some miracle products out there that fly under the radar and don’t get the love and attention they deserve. While going through my beauty products the other day, I started noticing that there were quite a few items in my arsenal that have worked wonders for me, and I never see anyone else really talking about them. So, today I thought I’d shed some light on these little miracle workers in the hopes that they gain more attention in the beauty community.
LORAC Pocket Pro
One brand that I definitely don’t think gets enough love in the community is LORAC. I’ve used their lipsticks, glosses, and eyeshadows, and have loved everything that I’ve tried from them so far. The product that stands out above all the rest is the Pocket Pro palette. This little eyeshadow trio is insanely amazing and I’m surprised I don’t see anyone mention it more often. The eyeshadows themselves are so incredibly buttery. They blend out beautifully, and it takes such a small amount of product to get the desired effect so this palette is something that will last for ages. I really love that the colors in this palette are a little more on the cool-toned side, especially since everything on the market is so warm right now.
Glossier Soothing Face Mist
As I’m sure you’re all well aware of by now, I’m a huge fan of Glossier. Their skincare products are absolutely incredible, and this newest addition to my collection is kind of knocking my socks off. The Soothing Face Mist is so good. Like, stupid good. I’ve tried so many face mists that it’s a tad ridiculous, and this one for sure stands out as one of my favorites. I’ve been using it as part of my skincare routine, to set my makeup, to refresh my face throughout the day…I’d probably bathe in the stuff if I could. It’s just so refreshing and hydrating, and when I use it it’s like my skin can’t get enough of it. Also, it smells lightly of fresh roses. Swoon.
Tarte Maneater Mascara
I don’t ever remember seeing an official launch or hype for Tarte’s Maneater Mascara. I just remember seeing photos of it in use when it first launched on one of the home shopping channels, and I knew I had to try it. Once I finally got my hands on it, I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. It’s one of those “does a bit of everything” mascaras, and the more and more I’ve used it, the more I’ve been falling in love with it. You really get a great amount of volume with this mascaras, without that weird “spidery” effect or any clumping. Also, it holds a curl quite nicely and makes my short lashes look nice and long. (If you’re interested in seeing it on, check out the selfie I recently posted on Instagram.)
Living Proof Restore Instant Repair Lotion
If your hair is damaged at all, you need to pick up a bottle of this right now. Not even joking, the Living Proof Instant Repair Lotion has worked some major miracles for my tresses. I use it when I get out of the shower and by the time my hair dries, it is soft, bouncy, and feels incredibly healthy. I usually struggle with dry, coarse strands that can sometimes result in a bit of breakage (and plenty of split ends, of course). This lotion really nourishes my hair and gives it back the life it desperately needs.
Soap & Glory Pillow Plump Lipgloss in Pinkwell
I love the appearance of full, pillowy lips, but as I have an almost nonexistent upper lip, it can be hard for me to achieve this look. Thankfully lip plumping glosses exist, and Soap & Glory has created the best of the best. The Sexy Mother Pucker Pillow Plump Gloss in Pinkwell is hands-down my favorite lip plumping gloss. It gives your lips the prettiest healthy pink glow, with an insane amount of shine and none of the stickiness. As with most lip plumping products, there’s some tingling involved, but I find that this one isn’t as intense as others I’ve tried and it actually feels quite pleasant after about a minute.
