The May issue of InStyle magazine is without question the one magazine I look forward to every year. And that’s because it’s the annual Best Beauty Buys issue. As you might tell, I do a hefty amount of research before purchasing any beauty products, and this issue has been an important resource for me for years. And to celebrate this year’s list, the first of hopefully many in the Beautypendence era, I thought it would be fun to point out all the make-up, skin, body and hair products in this year’s issue that I’ve discussed on the blog. Here goes…
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer – And on top of the Smashbox primer, we applied this tinted moisturizer. Oregon Jenn loved this product, and I also recommended it to Lynnette for her beauty shopping spree.
Ardell Duralash Naturals – These individual false lashes were another secret ingredient in Jenn’s wedding look. A great option when you want to boost your lashline without a full set of false eyelashes.
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing PM Lotion – High quality ingredients in a moisturizer you can find at any drugstore or grocery store. What’s not to love?
So did any of your beauty product favorites make an appearance on this year’s InStyle Best Beauty Buys list? Share your faves in the comments!
