2019 was a great year!

The fact that I had a baby at the beginning of it was good motivation to dive deep into the products that would help me feel like a regular person again and fast.

Which is good for you! Because I’ve accumulated those products here to showcase my favorite buys of 2019…

1. Revlon Volumizer Hair Brush

It’s like you grew a third hand and that hand can hold both a round brush and the hair dryer for you to give you the best, fastest blowout.

Sometimes I use it instead of straightening my hair. Other times I get detailed with it and will dry a section then hold it with a regular round brush to let the hair set while it cools. Regardless, it’s awesome, fast and gives you a blowout that will last for days.

Don’t start with sopping wet hair, dry it half way with a regular dryer then just wait for the fabulousness to come forth.

2. Tula Glow and Get it Brightening Eye Balm

Bought this in my car after I had pulled up to the house. My toddler was asleep in the back seat and it was one of those moment when I was not willing to get me and my baby belly out of the car just yet. So I sat and scrolled Instagram and came across this.

I bought it on the spot because I would be having a baby soon and I knew that after my last kid my under eyes needed HELP.

Boy was this the best purchase. It’s cooling, brightening and good for your skin. I’ve seen noticeable improvement in my under eye area since I’ve started using it – it’s brighter, just better. I will use this for a long, long time (and not just because the tube will last me forever).

There is the Rose glow and the Blue one – go with whatever would work with your skin type. If you have red undertones go with the Rose Glow. I’ve used both and they’re just both awesome.

3. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer

I’ve heard a lot about this stuff. I would often ignore it. Then I bought it and I get it – this is the greatest concealer of all time. Why? It’s long lasting, gives you great coverage, mattefying, brightening and blends in really well. It’s everything you’ve ever wanted in a concealer.

Don’t be like me and read those statements and ignore them – click that link and buy some. You won’t regret it.

4. Marc Jacobs Eyelash Primer

This isn’t going to give you long luscious lashes – let’s get that out of the way. But it is going to get you fuller lashes than if you would just use mascara.

I’ve tried it and it really gives you a fuller look. Now it’s not HOLY COW WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO YOUR EYES THESE DAYS GINA?! – kind of full, but it is the confidence boost you need to walk out and wink at the security cameras in the grocery store.

5. Rocksbox

This isn’t the first time I’ve talked about this and it won’t be the last.

Okay, $21 per month gets you a round of jewelry with three pieces in it. That box you can keep as long as you want or return it as many times as you want. I generally use two boxes a month to give you an idea and it usually takes about 4 days for turn around.

The great thing is that $21 goes towards anything you decide to keep.

What I’ve used it for is to systematically update my jewelry collection with quality pieces that I don’t have to pay full price for. Each piece is discounted then with the $21 you’re putting toward on top of it you can get a lot of good stuff without paying a ton.

And you get to live with the piece before deciding to give it a forever home.

I’m going to write a full post on it, but if you’re tired of your jewelry and want to refresh for the new year – this is the way to do it.
