It’s a new year! And it is so cold and dry in Kansas City! Brrr!
Some of my favorite new products include a moisturizing face mask, bright eye shadows, a refreshing face mist, great new products from Yes to and a yummy sweet and salty snack.
What are you loving this week? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Le Mieux Hyaluronic Shea Mask ($15 USD) — Formulated with the moisture-binding hyaluronic acid, this deep conditioning mask prevents water loss, dryness and roughness, providing intensive, long-lasting hydration. A rejuvenating blend of soothing oils and botanical extracts deeply nourish dry, damaged and mature skin, while improving elasticity.
What I think: My skin has been dry, but also really sensitive lately. I tried a different mask and it burned my face, so I was wary of trying another. But, I am so glad I tried this mask! It was so soothing and hydrating, and once I washed it off, my skin was so soft! I think I will be using this once or twice a week to keep my face soft and moisturized.

Mehron INtense PRO Pressed Pigments in Fire ($52.95 USD) — are super long-lasting matte finish shadows that are edgy, bright, and sophisticated. Our pigment rich, high-performing shadows offer an essential range of intense hues and a velvety matte texture. Formulated without shimmer, these completely matte shades have an incredible silky finish which allows for amazing color payoff.
Fire Palette – includes the colors: Ignite, Purple Heat, Fire Island, Electric Green, Pure Lightening, Hot Pink, Inferno, and Yellow Spark. This also comes in Earth and Wind palettes.
What I think: These shadows are so fun for a fresh look! Especially in this cold, dreary winter. The shadows are extremely pigmented and fun to use. I like to use them as an accent to more neutral shades. But using them together would be a very bright look!
