Eva’s Obsessions: November

Eva Amurri Martino shares her monthly roundup of product obsessions, including a volumizing fiber brow gel, translucent setting powder, hand sanitizer, and gold watch

November is here in full force, and it’s been super busy around here! I’ve been branching out a lot and investigating new products, which has been really fun.  There have been some hits, and some misses.  LOL.  This month for my obsessions, I’m focusing on products that I never knew I needed, but am now fully obsessed with.  I think you will be too! Without further ado, my monthly roundup of my favorite items…

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

I had been holding off on committing to a makeup setting powder for a while, but I recently realized how nutso that was and went for it.  I’m so glad I did! Simply, your makeup stays better, it looks more even, and the appearance of the skin is more “blurred” and perfected.  I had done some research and heard that this Laura Mercier version was supposed to be extra special– and it sure is! I love it.  The one I bought came with this cute puff also.  You just dust some powder on to the puff, work it in to the puff (I do this almost like how you would rub a stain out of clothes) and then press it in a rolling motion over your foundation to set it.  I do this after foundation and concealer, and before blush and highlighter, etc.

Eva Amurri Martino includes Benefit's Gimme Brow volumizing fiber getl as part of her monthly obsessions roundup

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel

This volumizing fiber gel has become the second step in my cherished brow routine.  After filling in my brows with this brow pencil, I go over my brows with this tiny brush and gel to add more thickness.  I’m totally obsessed with the results! If you have thicker brows to begin with, you could probably get away with just using this.  It’s a star product.

Eva Amurri Martino includes Birdie hand sanitizer as part of her monthly obsessions roundup

Birdie 2-in-1 Hand Sanitizer

Have you ever seen a cuter hand sanitizer in your life? I mean! I love how this looks in my purse and diaper bag, and it totally solves a problem for me.  I sometimes have actually dirty hands that I also want to disinfect– and I feel like the liquid hand sanitizer just squishes all the dirt around and makes it feel even more gross.  This Birdie comes with chemical-free hand sanitizer that you can just squirt on, and then the bottom opens up to reveal little dry wipes to help give you a more complete clean.  I love it! I use this for me and my kids.

Eva Amurri Martino includes a gold Tory Burch watch as part of her monthy obsessions roundup

Tory Burch Collins Watch

This super chic gold watch is the ultimate accessory.  It goes with every single outfit in my closet, is super sturdy and ultra classic.  I just can’t get enough! Friends and people I know have been asking me about this watch recently when I wear it, so I thought I would share the deets on my site! Plus, it would make the perfect Holiday gift for that special person on your list (namely, YOU. LOL)

    Benefit Gimme Brow is a game changer! Even if the only makeup I’m wearing is mascara (Benefit They’re Real! mascara, btw)and Gimme Brow, I still feel super polished because my eyebrows look great. I’m so glad you can draw more attention to this very awesome product.

    Eva, do you subscribe to Birchbox or Ipsy? I get the feeling a monthly box of beauty samples would be right up your alley.

    • Great, right?

      Lots of people have recommended those boxes to me! I kind of do my own of those since I’m pretty much obsessed with buying and trying new products. LOL.

    My 12 year old nephew is obsessed with the Birdie! He has one in his backpack!

    I think the Collins watch literally has my name on it!

    Love to all! Enjoy Mexico!

    Hi Eva,

    Just as an FYI. Gimme Brow was voluntarily recalled by Benefit Cosmetics due to an eye irritant.

      Just spoke with my eyebrow gal about this – they said they have no confirmed cases of anything & that it seemed to have happened due to people using it on their eyelashes instead of brows. They will re-launch in the Spring! (BUT LIKE WHAT ARE ADDICTS SUPPOSED TO DO UNTIL THEN THO?!)

      11.08.17Reply
      • Yeah, I heard the same thing about it not being confirmed by users. I haven’t ever had a problem with it! (plus I know lots of retailers are still carrying it)

    Benefit Gimme Brow is hands down my favorite makeup product! Even if I do not have time for full makeup, I will just put that on my brows and get compliments. Glad you love and use it too Eva!
