Soo.. this is my first ever favorites post and I plan to do them at the end of every month so that I can share with you the new things that I tried and liked for that month. Hope you enjoy them and find them helpful. Also feel free to tell me about your favorite products in the comments. A lot of products in this post will be from Avon because I have loved and used their products for years but now because I started my blog I’ll try to use products from a lot of different brands (mostly drugstore) p.s. I finally made an instagram account (programmerstyle) so now you can follow me there too :D
1. Makeup favorites
-Avon Big&Daring volume mascara: I’ve tried a lot of different Avon mascaras and this is the only one that managed to impress me besides their Luxe one. I have small eyelashes and this mascara makes them look a lot bigger. It gives volume since it’s a volume mascara but in my opinion it can also count as a decent lengthening mascara too. I have it in black. ($9 currently by one get one half off)
-Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Tender mauve: First of all this lipstick has different packaging on Avon’s site so I think the color of the packaging depends of the country you live in. This is my favorite “everyday” lipstick color. It’s the perfect mix of brown, pink and purple tones + it doesn’t feel drying on the lips at all. I am deeply recommending this lipstick to you. ($9 currently $5.99)
-Oriflame Beauty Eyebrow Kit: This kit is an all time favorite because I have used it for a year and still can’t find something that I will like more. (that’s why it looks grouse on the picture). I prefer to use eye shadow to fill in my brows than a pencil and this kit is amazing. It has two small brushes which do their job amazing, 2 shadows (light and dark brown) and wax. I just love it!
-Oriflame Universal Cream- Tender Care: This is a universal cream that I only use as a lip balm so I don’t know if it really counts as a makeup product. This smells amazing I have it in chocolate, I’ve also used the caramel one and they also have a coconut one that smells amazing. Not do they smell great but they make your lips very smooth too.
2. Skincare (Bath & Shower)
-Planet Spa India Intensity Invigorating Body Scrub with Black Sesame Seed extract and Sandalwood oil: This is the body scrub from Avon’s Planet Spat range that I’m currently using. (but I’ve tried different ones and I must say I like all of them). I really like the scent of it and it leaves your bath smelling very good when your done showering. It’s a gentle scrub so you can use it every time you shower.
-Planet Spa India Intensity Body Butter with Black Sesame Seed extract and Sandalwood oil: I like my body scrub and body butter to smell the same I guess. Again amazing scent, this body butter moisturizes your skin very nicely and lives it feeling soft :D
-L'Oréal Paris Elvive Arginine ResistX3 Shampoo and Conditioner: First don’t worry my hair isn’t falling but it’s really damaged and it’s breaking that’s why I decided to give these shampoo and conditioner a try (and JLo’s commercial). I mean they are good shampoo and conditioner considering their price. They sure made my hair feel and look better than before when I didn’t use them and as a bonus they make the hair smell lovely.
