My New Beauty Buys & Trys

Happy March friends, I’m taking a big sigh of relief that we made it through winter and the light can be seen at the end of the tunnel. It was a beautiful sunny weekend here in Kansas City with temps in the high 60’s giving me the promise of spring which I am so ready for. Anyways, I wanted to share a round-up of beauty products that have been on my wishlist for a couple of months now and that I finally went out and picked up over the past week or so. I obviously haven’t tried these products out but for only 3-4 days now so I will be sure to do a full review with all my thoughts here in 4-6 weeks after i’ve had time to use them long term. These are products i’ve had my eye on after seeing other bloggers or beauty vloggers talk about them and having success. Along with that I also love love love to read product reviews and do my own research before purchasing any product so some of these come from my own findings and experts at beauty stores as well.
