Spaz Summer 2012 [Beauty] Picks
Hey guys and gals! Happy Memorial Day weekend! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. One of the things I absolutely love about this season (besides relaxing poolside) is the amazing fashion and beauty deals that are out there! I’m a total SPAZ when I find the hottest items on the market for a bargain online. I am going to sound like a walking advertisement when I say this BUT I PROMISE Amazon.com has been one of my go-to places for finding these items for years!
Amazon knows how much I love them so we’ve decided to collaborate on SpazMag.com where I will directly share some of my favorite must-have items. Yippeeee for Amspazon!? ha ha. Anyways! Now, you can shop with Spaz! At the end of this post, you can click any of the shopping links at the bottom to purchase or learn more about these items! For starters, here are some of my recent summer purchases + favorite beauty & hair items that I absolutely recommend and LOVE!
1. La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream ($255)
This item is kind of pricey BUT it’s worth it! When it comes to anti-aging regimens, it’s important to invest in the right products that won’t add harsh chemicals onto your skin. It’s also important to start NOW! Don’t wait until you are in your 30′s and 40′s. FELLAS, this goes for you too!!!!! The skin around our eyes is the thinnest of all, which means little protection from the sun’s rays. This product will help! The ultimate Caviar de-aging treatment is made for the delicate skin surrounding your eyes. It’s a luxurious multi-tasking cream that not only provides round-the-clock hydration but also targets the seven most prevalent signs of aging. This product will last you a while because all you need is a dime size. I’m obsessed with it!
2. BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Combo Pack ($89 TOTAL)
over $300 value
Once you go BaByliss, you never go back! I’ve been using the Babyliss pro straightener for a few years now and I am hooked! I also use this straightener to do those big celebrity curls that you all love (personal tutorial coming soon–I promise!) I wish this combo pack deal was around when I first purchased my straightener on Amazon for $90! These bad boys run at about $200+ in stores, so I’m not complaining too much! However, this combo pack is great because it includes:
- –Palm Pro Trimmer Battery Operated 2 Comb Attachments For Trimming Sideburns, Necks,Mustaches and Beards.
- –1-1/4″ Ionic Straightener Sol-Gel Nano Titanium Ceramic Plates Ion Generator Emits Negative Ions Ceramic Heater for Instant Heat & Recovery LED Display up to 450 degrees (YOU CONTROL THE HEAT!!!!)
- –Travel Dryer 1000 Watts Dual Voltage 2 Heat/Speed Settings Folding Handle & Removable Filter/Stand.
3. Soft N Style Hair Donut ($7)
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the hair donut let me formally introduce you!! This is a super quick and easy way to get that chic and perfectly twisted high bun. The hair donut is basically hidden inside your hair so it looks like you got it done professionally. Fashion bloggers are rocking this piece and even celebrities are using it on the red carpet. How to use? Simply pull your pony tail through the donut and then pin your hair to achieve the look you want. It’s super light-weight and easy to use!!! (can also get in different color to match your hair if necessary)
4. Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer ($21)
If you think the glow on my cheekbones is natural–get out of town! In other words, I owe it to the amazing makeup luminizers. If you’re wondering what the heck a luminizer is, it’s a super easy way to add a natural glow to certain areas of your face. The Victoria Secret models use this on the regular and on the runway! Right now I’m using a luminizing stick from Topshop that I simply apply to my cheekbones and nose bone AFTER my foundation is set. (Confused? I’ll explain. Read my makeup regimen here) This shimmery luminator by Stila is one of my absolute favorites. I’ve used this product for years and it lasts a long time! (Application comes with its own brush–liquid is lightweight and shimmer lasts all day.)
5. NOW Solutions Castor Oil, 100 % Pure ($9)
Okay you’re probably laughing out loud wondering WHY this is in my Spaz must have list! The truth is if you apply 100% castor oil onto your eye brows before bed every night, you will start to notice them grow thicker! I haven’t tried this because my eyebrows are naturally a jungle, but I know a few close peeps who have and industry professionals who have told me that it really works! Castor oil is not going to harm your skin–it will soften the hair and inject natural vitamins. Also, it’s tasteless and odorless so that’s a plus! Here’s a tip–don’t over tweeze! Here’s how I maintain my brows + more tips.
HOPE THIS HELPED!!! You can purchase any or all of these items directly below. Happy shopping!!!!!
