Fave Fall Beauty Products Review
Happy end of summer, She She Girls!
Here at SheSheMe.com we often have the opportunity to review awesome beauty products. It’s definitely a huge job perk (as if scouring magazines for “research” isn’t enough fun). Just imagine: a shiny box of new tarte lipglosses and eyeshadows showing up at your door to be tested and reviewed by you! A girl can’t complain.
Since we are always giving our readers the chance to win these awesome freebies (new ones; not our used test products) I’m telling you now to keep your eyes peeled for upcoming contests! Oh, they are seriously great beauty products we’re giving away these days.
As the beauty editor, I have compiled a list of my (and the She She Group’s) favorite fall beauty products to get you informed—and excited—about the awesome beauty finds we are falling in love with.
Napoleon Perdis DeVine Godess Lipstick. Very lightweight with a hint of sparkle. Goes on smoothly and even felt somewhat moisturizing. Beautiful colors and, naturally, a fun see-through case; a new Girly favorite!
tarte Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss. I am a huge tarte fan. I think 60% of my makeup is tarte; in a year, it may takeover my collection completely! This lipgloss is a handbag staple and keeps my lips shiny, moisturized and happy all day.
Urban Cowgirl WhipStick. I’ve tested the Luscious shade and think it’s beautiful. If you’re looking at the picture on the site, the color is much lighter and not at all brown. It’s a very pink-nude, but mostly on the pink side with a tiny hint of sparkle. Very close to the color in the small picture at the bottom left of the page. Not too thick, but not too thin when applied. Plus it’s very compact and clutch-friendly.
tarte Lock and Roll 12-Hour Eyeshadow. I have never been a fan of liquid/cream eyeshadow, but I brushed my previous experiences with drugstore cheapies aside and trusted tarte—and I’m glad I did. The cream shadow goes on beautifully and dries to powder quickly, but what I love best is the loose shadow with roller ball applicator. So great! Certain friends and co-workers are getting annoyed at my sudden roll-on shadow attacks. Well, that’s what happens when you show up with no eyeshadow on, ladies.
Urban Decay Ammo Shadow Box. Some people love palettes, some people hate them. I am generally on the hate side, but only because my ridiculous paleness keeps me from wearing the bolder colors. This palette, however, I absolutely love. I think there is only one color I haven’t used. I love the sparkles in this shadow, even though a certain someone told me the sparkles make me look like a pixie.
First Aid Beauty Daily Face Cream. There’s a reason First Aid Beauty goes by F.A.B. Every FAB product I’ve tried has been excellent. I love, love, love this face cream. It’s so lightweight and hydrating, I feel like my face is craving it as soon as I step out of the shower. It’s also fragrance-free, which is a big plus for scent-sensitive women.
Hissyfit Saving Face Anti-Aging Foundation + SPF. Oh, how I love all things with “+ SPF” in the title! Cuts out that extra step when getting ready. This is a great tinted foundation (+ SPF 50!), so you get your moisture, sunblock and foundation in one quick step. Dries smooth and leaves your skin soft. And smells great to boot!
Jason Natural Cosmetics Antioxidant-Rich Lotion. There are three reasons I love this lotion: 1) it’s very affordable; 2) it smells fabulous; and 3) it feels amazing. Man, it’s everything good rolled into one lotion! I really love it. I have it in Sleepytime—which smells like all the very best plants a forest has to offer—and have tried the Bengal Spice (my favorite, I think) and the Countrytime Peach Passion. I’m definitely going to have to try the Lemon Zinger. Just writing about this makes me want to slather it on!
First Aid Beauty Body Moisturizer. Another winner by FAB! So silky and moisturizing. This lotion leaves your skin so smooth and happy you’ll wonder how you lived without it. Try it and I promise you’ll think, “Now that is how freshly shaved and moisturized legs should feel!”
Alba Botanica Cupuacu Body Lotion. Printed right on the front of the bottle is the claim “supremely moisturizes and softens.” Well, no embellishment there! I’m currently marveling at the softness of my hands and legs after using this lotion. Plus it smells fab.
Noah's Naturals Natural Age Repair Moisturizing Hand Cream is one of the most luscious hand creams I have ever used! I love the fragrance, and it smooths on without leaving a greasy residue. It is ideal for dry, chapped hands.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream. Safe for even the most sensitive skin. Petroleum-free. It contains Colloidal Oatmeal, the only FDA-approved, OTC ingredient for eczema. It's allergy-tested, dermatologist-recommended, and contains FAB Antioxidant Booster to combat free radicals.
Jurlique Rose Hand Cream. I really love this hand cream - the fragrance is so nostalgic, and it makes my hands feel smooth and cool.
Urban Cowgirl's 5 Minutes to Gorgeous Kit. This is an ideal quick-fix kit to carry in your gym bag, your handbag or to stash in your desk drawer. It contains 5 of Urban Cowgirl's best selling makeup products all stashed in an adorable paisley cosmetic bag.
Cleanwell All-Natural Hand Sanitizer. What I like about this hand sanitizer is that it is a lightweight spray instead of a gooey gel. I have it in the original scent, which smells like, well, citrus-herbal goodness, but I’m dying to try the others. It is alcohol free and kid safe. In fact, the alcohol free part means it holds 4x more uses per oz than your run-of-the-mill alcohol gel. I’ve been carrying it around and spritz-attacking all my friends (and Hubby, who is wising up to my tactics a little faster these days) at lunch and so far everyone has loved it.
Vichy Eau Thermale. Imagine being really hot and angry and mostly hot, hot, hot. Got it? Now imagine a fine, cool mist covering your face and neck, your arms. Thermal Spa Water. Immediately refreshing and energizing. That’s the beauty of Vichy Eau Thermale.
