Beauty Faves RN

February 6, 2022

One of my goals this past year was to work on my product photography. It's never been my strong suit, but I want to get better so I took a bag of beauty products I love to one of my favorite coffee shops in Kansas City and here we are, friends.
2 years into this pandemic and I feel like I've finally found a beauty groove, which is constantly evolving it seems. There are things I still mourn like the fact that I almost never wear lipstick (RIP), but overall I've found a balance that works for my life rn. 

I know we all feel some type of way about Gwyneth, but truthfully I am fascinated by her and the world of Goop. I saw a few Goop products at TJ Maxx not terribly long ago and the savings were too good to pass up. Normally a 4-pack is $45, but I found them for $15. I feel like my skin looks so revived and refreshed in the morning when I use these peels. Plus I have enough serum left over to put on my chest and d├ęcolletage. Definitely a splurge but a little treat for myself!

I'm a big fan of Erno Laslzo's cleansing bars so when I saw these at TJ Maxx for $6 I was like why not. Eye masks are always something I need and are such a nice addition to my beauty routine. Taking the time to care for such a small, but important area of my face feels so kind and is a wonderful form of self-care. I don't know if I see huge results from this eye serum mask, but I do like it. What's nice is that there is enough serum for a few days in these packets if you seal it back up!

Many of you know that one of my holy grail beauty products is the KVD Beauty Tattoo Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Trooper. I feel like I have to compare this eyeliner to that one just because that eyeliner has always been the best in my book for as long as I can remember. Then I got this one for my birthday and was stunned by how much I liked it. It has a great felt tip pen, is super inky/pigmented, and lasts all day. In terms of price point, this eyeliner is $1 cheaper than the KVD Beauty Tattoo Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner. I will add that I don't love that you can only buy this eyeliner from Amazon or the Haus Laboratories website, but it's a contender.

Big COOLA stan. Their sunscreens are life-changing. Sometimes I forget to add SPF into my routine and this spray is actually a lifesaver. I was a little nervous because most reviews said that this setting spray has a smell but I don't think it's terribly overwhelming. The glass packaging is a nice touch! For $10  I'm a happy camper.
Nars Orgasm X Quad Eyeshadow (Similar)

Oddly enough I own no NARS eyeshadow palettes? Which is so odd because I love their products and packaging. I promised myself that if I saw the ORGASM X collection sprinkled at TJ Maxx that I'd get something from this collection. So when I found this quad for $20, which retailed for $52 originally I had to buy it. Can we have a minute for the packaging, y'all?!

Well friends, here's the little haul. I hope you enjoyed this round-up. I intend to get back to these posts more often! 

I can't believe February is already here. I'm finding a lot of joy in living in the moment these days. A good laugh. The sun shining on my face. Fresh flowers. Quality time with friends old and new. There's so much to be found in the present. I'll see you soon.



  1. It's great you scored a few of these on sale and they became favourites too! Always good when you take a chance on a product and it works well for you! :)

    Hope that you had a fun weekend :) We had a good one, last one of the summer school holidays!
