5 Skincare & Makeup Products For You To Try in 2018

It’s pretty easy to fall into the same routine with our makeup. You find something you love, you use it and don’t deviate from it, right?

I definitely have my favs but I do love when I discover something new that’s even better! I’m always reluctant to try something new but I decided that 2018 would be the year I branch out. So far I’m loving it and have already gotten some new products that I’m obsessed with that I thought I would share with you all:


Foundation: Les Beiges by Chanel
It only took one little sample of this foundation from Nordstrom to hook me. One of my pet peeves with foundations are the thick clay-like ones. I just want something to be light, smooth and long-lasting. While it doesn’t come cheap, I can say that Les Beiges foundation from Chanel fits the bill for all of my foundation needs. I’m loving this product and a friend even commented the other day about how even my skin looked! Score!

Face mask: Beautycounter Brightening Facial Mask
I reviewed this one last year and I’ve tried a lot of facial masks but I had to give another shout out to Beautycounter’s No. 1 Brightening Facial Mask. I believe it’s the addition of the Vitamin C but no other mask makes my skin feel so awesome and smooth after I use it than this product.

Eye: Bobbi Brown Hydrating Eye Cream
Another one I fell in love with thanks to a sample. It didn’t take much! This eye cream from Bobbi Brown is super hydrating and has helped to both get rid of discoloration under my eyes but I really believe it’s also minimizing my age lines around my eyes? I love that it’s creamy but not too thick – feels like the perfect amount and it goes on lightly and preps you well for makeup after it’s on. I noticed one reviewer on Nordstrom said this product is a “game changer for tired Moms.” Amen, sister.

Lips: Fresh Sugar Lip Serum
If you were to tell my 20-something self that I would use a lip primer in my 40s, I’m pretty sure that 20-something self wouldn’t even know what a lip primer is. But lately, I wake up with really dry lips. And it’s not just seasonal – I’m literally waking up with lines and peeling lips many mornings. I don’t know what it is but I started looking for ways to keep my lips hydrated a few years ago. I’ve tried a few lip exfoliators but I really like this Fresh Sugar Lip Serum – it’s actually a primer so it goes on before you lipstick (and helps it to stay on longer!) but I love it for how much it helps with the little lip lines and how much it moisturizes.

Highlighter: Laura Geller Illuminator Palette
The first time I used this product, my 20-something niece said to me, “are you using a highlighter? The make-up on your cheeks looks great.” I knew I was doing something right with a compliment from her! If you’re looking for a little extra highlight as a finishing touch to your makeup, this set from Laura Geller has some nice neutral colors that will give you a little bit of a shimmer – plus the price is right this week! It’s currently 50% off on Nordstrom.
