Welcome to the beginning of another week! Is there something you've been wanting to accomplish this summer that you've just been stuck on? Let's make this the week to get it done. Lay out one action you can take today or tomorrow to move yourself in the right direction. You'll be surprised at how you'll feel even more productive than you thought! Since it is is summer, we've seen some amazing new beauty releases, which have me clicking "add" to my Sephora cart every five seconds. I teamed up once again with the fabulous Dakota to bring you seven of the latest and greatest (and one that's super old that I need to test out ASAP) in beauty launches that I can't wait to get my hands. on.
Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Foundation in Shade 3 Light Neutral, $29
Ever since I tried Rihanna's Fenty Beauty soft matte foundation I've begun to find myself more open to trying foundations that are a lighter coverage since I tend to be more of a tinted moisturizer girl. This new foundation from Benefit is A. adorable and B. a soft blur product that will smooth but not fully cover.
Urban Decay Born to Run Palette, $49
When I first saw this palette making the rounds on Instagram I was totally intrigued. As you all probably know, when it comes to eyeshadows I'm a big fan of neutrals and warm-toned shades. I think this palette would be the perfect thing to push me outside of my comfort zone while still giving me both shimmer and matte shades that I already know I love.
Milk Makeup Kush Fiber Brow Gel in Dutch, $18
Since I first tried Glossier's Boy Brow I've been really interested in mastering the super natural but still polished brow and tinted gel products are definitely the answer. While I can't see myself ditching BB anytime soon, I am really curious to try Milk's new fiber brow gel. The indie beauty brand has had so many cool releases this year, but this is definitely the one I'm most excited to test out.
Boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer, $38
When it comes to skincare I'm a sucker for any and all moisturizers, so when I saw that Boscia was releasing one inspired by cactus water I couldn't contain my excitement. The moisturizer is infused with Queen of Night Cactus that helps moisturize skin without being too heavy.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Amplifying Eye Primer, $22
We all know that Riri can truly do no wrong as proven by her impressive track record with Fenty Beauty. The next product I want to try from her line? This amazing eyeshadow primer. Promising long-wear technology and making creased shadows a thing of the past, this primer will keep your eyes looking fabulous for hours on end.
Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder, $29
Don't even say it, I already know what you're thinking. Austen, it's 2018 and I constantly take beauty advice from you...what do you mean you've never tried Benefit's Hoola Bronzer?? Look, I know and I'm sorry. All I can say is that face products scare me sometimes and I've made vast strides in the last year and am now ready to accept my bronzed fate. If I purchase anything from this wish list, it will probably be that.
If you see me wearing eyeshadow, nine out of ten times I'll be wearing matte shades. And while right now I've got a few palettes with some shades I love, I'm ready to dive deeper. When I saw this all-matte palette by Tarte I knew I had to add it to my list of stuff I wanted to try.
