  • Beauty Products I've Been Going Steady With

  • I get beauty product ADD with all the bazillion choices out there. I'll try something for a week (or a day), then skip to something else, and another and so on … It's probably because as a beauty editor, I come across so many misses like the 16 worst makeup products, but as of late, I do have some new faves that have been holding my interest. And I thought I would share them with you since I always love to hear of others' finds:

  • Benefit POREfessional, $28

  • #

  • I have bigger pores on my cheeks and this nifty product fills them in so that they disappear leaving a smooth finish.

  • Dermalogica UltraCalming Barrier Repair, $37

  • #

  • This serves as a moisturizer, but it's not a cream, so it leaves a velvety finish, which makes it double as a primer.

  • Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 30, $30

  • #

  • Powder sunscreens are a life-changing alternative. This one actually provides sun protection and evens out my skin tone, but doesn't feel at all greasy or oily like lotions can.

  • LaLicious Sugar Souffle Scrub in Coconut Cream, $34

  • #

  • This scratches my itch for exfoliation and leaves my skin feeling moisturized post-shower so that I don't have to apply moisturizer (great, since I get so lazy about doing that). Major plus: It smells like vacation + dessert.

  • Hard Candy Visibly Wet Lip Pencil in Cougar, $6

  • #

  • Don't knock drugstore makeup 'til you try it -- this fat, lip crayon serves as both a liner and a lipstick for me and is very creamy so you don't really need balm or gloss or anything. And the shade "Cougar" is a dreamy, poppy coral color that I pretty much wear everyday (for now at least…).

  • OPI Nail Lacquer in You Don't Know Jacques!, $8

  • #

  • OK, OK, I might be the last person on the planet to have tried this shade, but wow, it's def worth all the hype. I have it on my toes now and it's an edgy, refreshing change from my go-to peachy, pink color.
