Disclosure: HEB sent me this awesome package of goodies along with some extras. Opinions 100% mine.
Recently, HEB sent me this sweet package of their holiday beauty must haves! We’re huuuuuuge fans of HEB in this house! They opened a brand new store near us and of course I had to scope out the beauty department. I love that HEB carries some of my favorite drugstore brands like NYX and Milani. It makes my drugstore beauty loving heart happy! It’s great to be able to do our week’s worth of grocery shopping while also being able to grab some beauty essentials.
Let’s take a look at the goodies that will get us glam for the holidays!
Ardell is my favorite brand of budget false lashes! I love that it comes with some Lash Grip (also another one of my favorite lash glues). You really can’t go wrong with lashes like these – they’re perfect for a holiday party!
I knew that HEB had a line of makeup brushes, but have never tried them. I must say, I’m really impressed with this eye shadow brush! It’s fluffy, soft, and really is great for packing shadow on the lid or to highlight the brow bone. Consider me a new fan!
I love love love NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils! The one in Milk is an amazing base and highlight. I love this slate color, and it would be a great base for a smoky eye look. And who doesn’t love a smoky eye during the holidays?
NYX eyeshadow palettes are lovely, I must say! I really like how this palette has a good mix of mattes, satins, and shimmer finishes. It’s a great neutral palette. The shadows are highly pigmented and blend fairly easy. I would definitely use this for a holiday glam look.
NYX Cream Blush in “Natural” is one of my favorite cream blushes…. and I already own it! It blends easy and is a beautiful natural pink color. Cream blushes are great for the winter time, especially since skin tends to be a little drier than usual. Using tons of powder products will emphasize dry patches, while cream products will help mask them. Cream blushes are super easy to use, too, because they blend easy with fingers!
I was so excited to try this product, as I absolutely love setting sprays. I’ve only used it a few times but so far I really like it! I think it would be perfect to use for a holiday party look that needs to stay put all night.
This is a product I normally wouldn’t reach for, but the more I play with it, the more I really enjoy it. On one end it’s a cream shadow in a gorgeous bronze color that stays put (and has a doe foot applicator). On the other end is a glitter that can be used as a liner (has a liner brush applicator). I think this would look great with a gold eye look! New Year’s Eve, anybody?
Another product perfect for New Year’s Eve! Orchid is a line of beauty products sold at HEB and I am a big fan of their nail polishes. Not to mention, they’re wallet friendly. I love this silver sparkly color. I envision layering it over a dark blue… oh, so pretty!
For every day purposes, I don’t really use makeup remover wipes. I usually reach for my EVOO. However, when I am creating a more dramatic look and wear more products than normal, wipes really help me get everything off. I love how these smell refreshing and they did indeed remove my waterproof mascara. Super easy to use after a long night of festivities!
When I first opened this up, I quite literally said, “How cool!” This is a great emergency fashion and beauty emergency first aid kit! It includes fashion tape, a bra converting clip, deodorant removing sponge, no-show concealers, garment shields, eye makeup remover and corrector, lint removing sheets, leather wipe, stain removing wipe, and nail file – all in a small cute little clutch! I threw this in my car because I thought it was perfect to have at any moment. In fact, my BFF is getting married soon and I have a feeling I will be toting this around just in case! I think this would be a perfect gift for brides or just to keep in your car for those fashion emergencies!
So there you have it! But before I go, I have to tell you guys about the Twitter Party that HEB is hosting tomorrow evening at 7:00 p.m. CST! They will be giving away some awesome prizes, including gift cards and beauty prize packs! I will be participating, and you can follow along using the hashtag #HEBbeauty! Hope to see you there!
