Beautycounter has become one of my favorite go-tos for skincare and makeup. Not only does the company provide highly performing products (think – you’re favorite Sephora products!) but they are considerably safer!
I’ll be doing a more in depth post about why I decided to switch to safer products, but in the meantime, do some research about harmful ingredients in personal care products. You will be very surprised!
Beautycounter comes out with limited edition holiday collection every year and this year’s collection was released on Tuesday!
Disclaimer: I am a Beautycounter consultant but all opinions are mine and I joined because I love it SO much and love the mission behind the company!
My top 5 favorites of the 2017 Beautycounter Holiday Collection
For the longest time I was a HUGE fan of the Naked palettes, but after finding out about questionable ingredients, I was super bummed to not find anything comparable. Well, Beautycounter has outdone themselves on this one! Not only does it have triple the amounts of shades (18 to be exact!), it includes matte, satin, and shimmer shadows in one palette! The colors are super pigmented and work beautifully on all colors of skin!
This color was available to all consultants that went to Leadership Summit and quickly sold out! This is an amazing color and they also added a gloss!! A fun fact about the lip sheers and glosses in the holiday sets, they have a peppermint flavor to them! Both coordinating colors come packaged in a sliding-drawer gift box and you can wear them alone or layer them for a more intense hit of color!
I am so excited to be able to gift this set! It comes with all 3 masks that you can either use at the same time (for multi masking!) or separately, and it comes with a brush to apply! This set also comes with a collectable tin, that makes it an easy gift that you just throw a bow on! You can also pair each individual msk with its partnered oil (see number 4, below!) and wrap them up separately to give three different gifts to friends or your kids teachers!
I know, I know, oils? For your face!? Yes! And they are the best! These oils address specific skin concerns and give you such a nice finish to your skin. This set comes in try-me sizes and you can take them anywhere! No. 1 Brightening Facial Oil blends hydrating marula oil with vitamin C, which helps illuminate and even skin tone. No. 2 Plumping Facial Oil contains jasmine oil to replenish moisture and omega-rich argan oil to help minimize the appearance of fine lines. No. 3 Balancing Facial Oil features ylang ylang flower oil and wild chamomile to calm and nourish skin. These complement the masks (in number 3, above!) and have made a huge difference in my skin!
I LOOVVEEEE this set! We use this line on both kids and it is the best! So when I saw this set and saw that it came in BIG bottles and a cute hooded towel (that is also organic cotton!), I was sold! The formula for all of the products in Beautycounter are super concentrated so you don’t need much, and that is especially the case with these! I have a feeling I won’t be needing a replacement for a LONG time!
BONUS! Because I HAD to!
Y’all!!! These colors are GORGEOUS! I never considered myself a lip stick fan, but I am IN! I love each of the colors and they last! There are five different shades and they have a fresh peppermint flavor! They come in a reusable navy-and-gold gift tin and include: Girls’ Night (classic red), Little Black Dress (rich berry), Brunch (tawny nude), First Date (rosy pink), and 9 to 5 (luminous mauve).
It was SO hard to come up with only 5 (well, 6, because I just had to) out of all 17 sets that were released. I would love to hear from you on what your favorites are and what you ordered to try or gift! Leave me a comment below, I love to hear from you guys!0
