I did a pole on Instagram Stories asking if YOU wanted to know the new products I have been using, and loving. As a blogger it is part of my job to research EVERYTHING; so you don’t have to. I am basically your guinea pig, but it’s ok because I love it. We all know I’m a total skincare & makeup junkie. I’m always on the hunt for the new, and best products on the market. I’m also not afraid to say a product I have been using for 5 years is better, but that will be for another post. All of my Holy Grail products.
This post is about some new products I have discovered, and head over heals for. More then likely a lot of them will be on my holy grail list. They are mostly skincare & makeup products, but there are other things in this post besides just that. Here they are:(PS you can shop all the products at the end of the post.)
Hopefully by now you have already read my holiday gift guide. If not get on that ASAP. You have requested ideas for stocking stuffers; so here you go. I separated it into 2 categories; Him & Her. Shop now so you can receive them in time for Christmas.
I get a lot of questions regarding my ride or die makeup products. So I did a poll on Instagram, and you guys asked for me to name my top 4 products. So here they are ready for you to shop. If I was stranded on a desert island, and could only have 4 makeup items with me they would be……….
The 2 questions I get asked most. Can I have your closet? What is the secret to your glowing skin? So I do my best to try to help you with both lol. I will be doing a YouTube video of my whole skincare routine so you get get all the details , and watch a demo. Today I will be telling you my favorite face creams. No matter your skin type; it’s always important to keep your skin moisturized. To start off; I should say that I have Normal to Dry Skin. I currently live in Las Vegas which makes my skin even more dry.
I own several face creams, and they are my ride or dies. I often like to layer creams, but that is a personal preference. I do think it is important to own at least 2. Your skin changes depending on the season, climate, hormones and environmental aggressors. So one lotion may not work for you all year; or you may like to use a different face cream day and night.
I linked all my favorites below. Some are very expensive other’s more affordable, but I love them all. Welcome to my RIDE OR DIES.
*Disclaimer: I do not collab with Tom Ford. I actually purchase their products. The products I listed are the ones I personally love, and work great for me. Like every skincare and makeup line they have their strong points. For example: They may be the top for foundations, but I may think their blushes are just normal. Like in my post a “Note To My followers” I will never post an item I do not love or have not highly educated myself on. I feel like as a blogger you should work with your strong suites. If you don’t know much about skin care; don’t post about it. I stay true to this. I want m followers to trust me, and know I am authentic . Makeup and skincare is one of my passions.
If you have been following me, and my blog for sometime now; you know my love for Tom Ford cosmetics. My love for Tom Ford started when I was young, and he was the creative director for Gucci. I had a total crush on him. I also thought Gucci was at their prime with him as their director. But like all good things they must come to an end. He had to step down as creative director.
Well you could only imagine how I excited I was when he came out with his own line. Along with his amazing couture he had makeup and skincare. Now seeing the prices if his products definitely put me off. I didn’t even want to go near the products, but then the buzz began. More and more I kept hearing how amazing his foundations were, and his mascara etc. So in true Lana fashion I tested the products myself. I went to Neiman Marcus and made my first Tom Ford makeup purchase. It was their traceless foundation, mascara and eyeliner in Metallic Mink .
As much as I didn’t want to love the products I did. The foundation was beautiful. It had a skin like finish and was light and lasted. It is now in my list of favorite foundations. The mascara made my lashes pop. So of course I was intrigued and bought more products. I can say I have a decent collection of Tom Ford Makeup. Obviously everyone who follows me knows I use a wide range of products at different price ranges. Sometimes I feel a splurge is necessary; other times its optional. If you can afford to buy all Tom Ford products go for it. If not one or 2 products may be just enough for you. Thats why in this post I broke down my favorites of his line thus far.
