Forever a fan of drugstore (and affordable!) beauty products, I wanted to try something new as I saw my makeup bag dwindling in product. When it came time to replenish some of my makeup, I wanted to replace them with some 'cleaner' options. It's a little embarrassing how much research I did on this stuff, but after some time, I settled on trying Honest Beauty!

Honest Beauty actually fits my needs like a glove! I was looking for a cleaner brand, with a more natural 'no makeup, makeup' look. I really loved the color options when it came to my skin tone. (more on that later.)

There were two other things that were important to me when choosing some new makeup. Price and accessibility. I'm budget conscience and rarely splurge on myself. (Speaking as someone who has actively needed a massage for 2 months for some unbearable tension, but won't schedule it because I hate spending the money.) It didn't need to be the cheapest product on the shelf, but I did not want to break the bank. And then, if I ran out of something unexpectedly, I wanted to be able to go grab it at Target last minute if necessary. 

Plus, if I'm being honest (LOL see what I did there!?) the packaging is killer and it looks so great all together!! 






So here's what I got and my thoughts on each product:

CC Tinted Moisturizer 

Shade: Dune
I'm not a full coverage foundation person, so a CC cream is my preference. This just blurs any imperfections and also has SPF. Perfect for the summer! 

Bright Eyes Tinted Eye Cream

Shade: Sandstone
Maybe my most important makeup staple...got look awake! Plus this has hyaluronic acid. So it brightens and hydrates. 

Luminizing Glow Powder

Shades: Dusk Reflection and Midnight Reflection
A standout product! I use Dusk for bronzer and Midnight for highlighter. Super pretty and just ups the glow so much. 

Crème Cheek and Lip Color

Shade: Rose Pink
This is actually the first crème blush I've ever tried and it's so nice! I use my makeup sponge to apply, but there might be a better way. Still new to it, but really enjoying this one.

Get It Together Eye Shadow Palette 

Wow, wow these colors. I love them so much. They are ideal for my skin tone, but I'm not sure how'd they'd look on someone fair? It seems like they should develop some more shades. The palette is split in half - one side for more day time looks and the other for night. 

Honestly Healthy Brow Gel

Shade: Taupe
I can't believe there was a time when I didn't do anything to my brows. I really love this because it's not heavy, and it really just ever so slightly darkens and grooms my eyebrows. Taupe is my color, but I think I could go darker for something more bold. 

Liquid Eyeliner

Liquid eyeliner for ever! I love love love this eyeliner. It's got a great brush and stays put. Note that I am not wearing it in the photo above. I usually do not include eyeliner in my everyday look, just when I go out with friends or something like that. 

Honestly Healthy Lash Tint Serum

Shade: Black
YES to this! This is a lash tint but with a serum to promote healthy lashes. Think of it as the lightest mascara you'll ever use. Skinny wand, and just enough product to make your eyelashes darker. I use this on days when I'm not wearing makeup at all, but want to have a little something on my lashes to look more awake.

Lengthening Mascara and Primer

If you don't try any other Honest Beauty products - make your one purchase this one! It's STELLAR. The primer is everything, and the mascara itself does not flake and gives you lashes for days. My mom noticed the very first time I wore this mascara and she never comments on things like that. 

Tinted Lip Balm

Shade: Summer Melon
Oooh, this stuff is the bomb. It's like 'my lips, but better'. Moisturizing and just enough to make you feel great. I want every color. I just ordered their liquid lipstick, but haven't gotten it yet, so I will have to report back! 

I grabbed some fresh makeup brushes too, how fun are these rose gold ones from Elf
