Sponsored – Refinery29: My Favorite Products From The Beauty Innovator Awards

November 1, 2016

Hello Beauties!

What an eventful weekend it has been on ze blog AND it’s about to get even better!

You ask why?! Well, let me tell you!

Y’all know that I am a sucker for new and unique beauty products. So, when I received some of the best products nominated on Refinery29’s Beauty Innovator Awards, I was singing HALLELUJAH! Like, who doesn’t love the best products in the market to try and create looks from!? But, before I can get down to business and tell you all about my favorite products like the Sea Salt Shimmer Spray…yes, I said shimmer…shimmer for your hair – Let me tell you a little bit about The Beauty Innovator Awards.

The Awards were created just last year and has become a place where the best products like makeup, skincare and hair products are showcased. These products are pretty much the holy grail for many bloggers, you-tubers and makeup artists. Sometimes, we are sort of iffy about trying new products based on mixed reviews, but I feel like The Beauty Innovator Awards eliminated that idea of mixed reviews. We literally have products heavy hitters from the Beauty industry are willing to swear by. OH, and whats even better? You get to vote your favorite products as well!

Now, lets talk about MY favorites. YAY!


My FAVorites from the Beauty Innovator Awards

Golden Waves – Sea Salt Shimmer Spray This sea salt spray is my new holy grail! Never taking it out of my hair. I love the amount of volume it adds to my hair AND there is SHIMMERRRR

1.VERB – Ghost Hairspray: ┬áNot a big fan of hairspray, because it sort of weighs my curls down and I just don’t like how it feels. BUT this Verb Ghost Hairspray is everything. It’s weightless, smells great, and it adds texture for whatever hairstyle you’re trying to go for. 2. NYX Matte Lipstick – Aria (purple lipstick on the bottom right) 3. NYX Matte Lipstick – Minx Seductrice (dark brown on the left)

Pestle & Mortar – HYDRATE: love love love this. I have not been wearing foundation since I started using this moisturiser. This moisturiser has evened out my skin. Don’t know what kind of magic this container consists of, but I am under its spell.

You now know my favorites, and I couldn’t leave you hanging with just that. I created a look for you guys using these products!

I used the Sea Salt Shimmer Spray to scrunch my hair using the palm of my hands. This adds volume and texture to the hair. Then, I went back with my wand and curled some of the layers. For the flyaway strands of hair, I used VERB – Ghost Hairspray to lock this hairstyle.

I used the Matte Lipstick in Aria on my cheeks as a blush. So in love with the color that I wanted it as a blush. The lip color pictured here is Minx Seductrice from NYX!

Out of all these products I used to create this look, Sea Salt Shimmer Spray has to be my absolute favorite. I’ve literally been spraying it in my hair since I received it! I encourage all my beach wave hair lovers to check it out!
