Yes, I pinch myself that part of my job is testing out the latest and greatest in beauty! Patience. Not-so-great outcomes. A product graveyard. Not all of them make the cut, and I only like to share the ones that I love with you!

Every so often, you get some serious winners. While I do always prefer to take the natural route when it comes to beauty, there are exceptions. NARS is definitely one of the best, consistently amazing lines out there, and their new Audacious mascara and liner are no exceptions.

The mascara honestly does not clump. That’s basically a miracle, because mascaras alway do. It stays put, doesn’t flake and has to be one of the best I’ve tried. The liner is super pigmented, creamy and smudges like you always want it to.

Doesn’t the word ‘juicy’ just get you every time? Just me? Awkward. I don’t consider myself an environmentalist, but I’ve always thought of wipes as unnecessary garbage… these Kaia Juicy Bamboo Cloths are biodegradable! I never use makeup remover, and my towel pays the price. After washing, even double cleansing, there are always remnants of my laziness on the drying towel. When I use these, that’s definitely not an issue. They are also completely natural so of course, that gives them extra marks. Perfect for beside the bed on the ‘can’t be bothered’ nights, but otherwise, I do like to use them prior to cleansing as opposed to having them replace my cleanser.

Any new faves I need to know about? Would love to hear!
