BEAUTY COUNTER FAVS
Hey y'all! Wanted to come on here and make a post you could refer back to for all my favorite Beauty Counter products. Let me start by saying I have super sensitive skin so I try to stick to products that are clean and don't contain chemicals. This summer I saw Beauty Counter had a pop-up at Sephora, and I had seen girls on Instagram talk about different products they loved. I finally made an order a few weeks ago, and was not disappointed. Yes, their products are a bit pricey, but you are getting quality products that are completely free of chemicals, harsh ingredients, and will last you a long time. Enough talk, let me show you my favorites.
You can always shop Beauty Counter products through this link:
NUMBER ONE FAV: By far, my favorite is Counter+ Lotus Glow Cleansing Balm.
What is it? This cleansing balm is your all-in-one product. It can be used as a cleanser, hydration mask, and moisturizer. I love using it both day and night. I have really sensitive and especially dry skin in the winter, so this has been a lifesaver. It hydrates while cleansing and removes impurities without stripping away your skin's natural moisture. Bonus, it can be used on dry spots and sunburns too.
How to use? Because this is a multi-tasking product there are a few ways it can be used. First, I use this to double cleanse, and remove makeup. I have also been using it every night as an overnight hydrating facial. If I'm applying face tanner, I will mix in my Isle of Paradise Drops with this cleansing balm. I also use it as a day-time moisturizer when my skin is looking dull.
Why I love it? I saw results almost immediately after using this product, and that has never happened with anything, ever before. Every time I use this my skin is left with a glow, hydrated, and super smooth. This is a pricey product, however it can be used so many ways and will last you a lifetime. Alright that's it, I can seriously talk about this one for hours!!
My next favorite would have to be the Flawless in Five Set. You can totally purchase these products individually if you don't want/need them all, but totally worth every one, and together they are are amazing.
What is it? The Flawless in Five Set is a makeup value set. Included is the Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation or Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer, Skin Twin Creamy Concealer, Color Define Brow Pencil or Brilliant Brow Gel, Lengthening or Volumizing Mascara, Satin Powder Blush, and the Beyond Gloss.
What's the hype? By purchasing these items in the Flawless in Five value set, you are getting a $190 value for $150. Within the set, you get to choose the shades and have a choice between a few products. The set gives you a choice of foundation or tinted moisturizer. I choose the tinted moisturizer, I have never used a foundation. You also get a choice of brow gel or a pencil, I love the convenience of the brow gel. Next, your choice of mascara, I got the lengthening mascara. Lastly, you get to choose your shades in the concealer, satin powder blush, and beyond gloss lip gloss.
Why I love it? Alright this might take a second, but I love each product for a different reason. Starting off with the Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer. I am very picky about how makeup feels on my face, I don't want to feel cakey or sticky. This tinted moisturizer is very lightweight and you can build the coverage. It also works really well with the concealer. Bonus, it has SPF! The finish on this is also really pretty, it has a natural dewy, glowy look to it. Definitely one of the best tinted moisturizers I have found.
Next, the concealer. I love how smooth and creamy this one is, and it doesn't weigh your skin down like some other brands. The coverage on this is on the lighter side, but it is definitely buildable.
Now onto brows, I have the Brilliant Brow Gel. It is a light gel hold, nothing crazy intense. I love the invisible color for an everyday styled look even without makeup.
Eyes! I love a good mascara, but I've never been into clumpy lashes. The lengthening mascara has the skinniest wand perfect for lengthening without making clumpy, stuck together lashes. I have also never had any issues with smudging or it flaking off (my pet peeve). Make sure to apply multiple coats, it is more of a buildable product to get your desired look.
For your cheeks, I've always been a huge fan of blush. I think the coloring of blush does wonders for a makeup look, making you look more alive and sun kissed. I apply my blush to the apples of my cheeks and the bridge and tip of my nose. This particular Satin Powder Blush I love, because it has a matte finish which complements the dewy look of the tinted moisturizer, super natural looking too.
Okay I am OBSESSED with this Beyond Gloss Lip Gloss!! I cannot stop using it daily. To start, it smells so yummy, like amazing. Also, the formula on this is the absolute best. I have never tried a lip gloss that is so hydrating, but has that high intensity shine at the same time. I am super picky about glosses, because I have dry lips but this one is conditioning and definitely doesn't dry you out. I got the clear color to layer over lipstick, but you couldn't go wrong with any color; the formula is just that good.
What shades do you wear? All my shade names below to easily refer back to this post.
Dew Skin Tinted Moisturizer in shade medium.
Skin Twin Creamy Concealer in shade light 1.
Brilliant Brow Gel in shade invisible or medium.
Lengthening Mascara in shade black.
Satin Powder Blush in shade nectar.
Beyond Gloss in shade Quartz Shimmer.
ANOTHER FAV: the Illumining Cream Highlighters.
What is it? The Illumining Cream Highlighters come in three shades. I have the Rose Glow and Pearl Glow shades. These highlighters are sheer, blendable, and buildable.
How to use it? With the shade Pearl Glow, I use the Illumining Cream Highlighter to highlight my face. They are super easy to blend using the warmth of your fingers or your beauty blender of choice. I also love using the Rose Glow shade over the bridge and tip of my nose for a sun kissed glow.
Why do I love it? These are the perfect addition to any makeup look, natural or full face, to achieve that natural glow without looking like a glitter bomb. Also, I love the convince of this product, super easy to keep in your purse to touch up or apply on the go.
Beauty Counter Items I want to try:
Sheer Genius Conditioning Lipstick (Award winning)!
Skin Twin Featherweight Foundation (Heard this foundation is very lightweight).
The Jellies Duos (I've heard amazing things about these)!
The Clean Duo (BC just launched this clean deodorant, wanting to try).
Counter+ Overnight Resurfacing Peel (Heard it's like a at-home facial).
Counter+ All Bright C Serum (Vitamin C is amazing for your skin)!
Counter+ No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil (Allure award winner, helps to even skin tone)!
There is a clear correlation between what you eat and how you feel, look, etc. Well, wouldn't the same apply to the products you use? When I switched over to eating healthier, I thought it only made sense to do the same with the products I use. I really, really, try to use products on my skin, hair, body that are natural, clean, free of chemicals and harsh ingredients. Beauty Counter does all that, so if you are looking to find better products, definitely check em out!
