Is it really the first Monday of October already? I'm shocked at how quickly 2015 has flown by. I just finished decorating the apartment for Halloween and before you know it, the Holidays are here! In other news, you may notice things look a little different around here. My website just got a much needed revamp! When I first launched Beauty in New York City back in 2011, I didn't imagine how many people would actually read it. It was initially created as a blog for my friends and family to visit when they needed advice on beauty. Now thousands of you visit daily to stay in the loop! I listened to your feedback about what you wanted to see and here it is. I hope you enjoy the refresh! You can easily search categories at the top of the page and shop my favorite products. Not a bad start to this Monday! Here are 6 beauty products to help cure those end of weekend blues:
H&M Beauty, All under $25
H&M just launched something very exciting - a beauty department! You can now shop over 700 beauty products at an H&M near you. Products are available in over 91 stores in the U.S., 900 stores worldwide, and online at hm.com. From an extensive color collection to nail colors, a body range, and hair products, this collection certainly isn't lacking. I see a lipstick with my name on it!
Charlotte Tilbury Mini Miracle Eye Wand, $45
Everyone knows Mondays are tough. My eyes usually need a little extra love and Charlotte Tilbury's new Mini Miracle Eye Wand does just the trick. This double ended wand is a perfect 5-in-1 product to help banish dark circles, eliminate fine lines, brighten eye contours, smooth away crow's feet and tighten under-eye bags. This powerful product took 5 years in the making and now we can fake 8 hours of blissful beauty sleep in just two clicks. I'll take a few back-ups, please!
LORAC Cosmetics Mega Pro Palette 2,$59
The highly anticipated sequel to LORAC's first Mega PRO palette is finally here! Last year, it sold out in only one day, so get yours while supplies last! This palette is loaded with 16 shimmer and 16 matter eye shadows. The shadows are velvety-smooth and can be used wet or dry so you can shade, shadow, line and define your eyes, just like a PRO.
Wella EIMI Sugar Lift Spray, $18.99
Turn your hair's volume up with Wella EIMI Sugar Lift Spray. Simply spray and scrunch hair - locks will instantly have more shine, texture and body! All hair needs on a Monday morning. Available at beautybrands.com.
Luster Premium White's New Pro Light System, $43.99
Nothing better than a brighter smile to start off the week. I recently tested Luster Premium White's New Pro Light System and saw a difference in my teeth after one use. It's very easy to use and can be tailored to your specific needs and schedule. The system can help erase years of stains in just 30 minutes. You can use to touch-up for an event or weekly to brighten teeth over time.
Lastly, this is one of the most delicious candles I've ever smelled. It's been burning in my apartment non-stop and I'm going to have to get more before winter hits. The scents of creamy vanilla and sugary amber enhance the room and makes me feel like baking a sweet cake. Thank goodness this candle is in it's new large form or else it would already be depleted! Glade's new large candles comes in scents like Blue Odyssey, Hawaiian Breeze, Apple Cinnamon, and Cashmere Woods.
