I was lucky enough to be sent some amazing beauty products from Boston makeup artist, Amanda McCarthy. Not only does Amanda do incredible makeup, but she also creates beauty products that have me hooked. From her creamy matte lipstick and liner to her rich gloss and beautiful blush, I can't get enough!

Where do I begin? I tried each of these products and it's hard to say which one was my favorite. So I'm going to share my thoughts on each one below!

Luxury Matte Lipstick in "Kate"

This ultra-longwear lipstick provides a creamy, matte finish in a variety of flattering shades. I only need a light swipe for super pigmented coverage. The color is a perfect rosy neutral that makes for a great dupe to Kylie Jenner's Candy K lip kit shade. The best part? It's not drying at all and it lasts past my early morning Starbucks sips. It's hypoallergenic, fragrance-free and paraben-free. I can't say enough about this product.

Mineral Matte Blush in "Hush Pink"

There's nothing I love more than that flushed, fresh-from-the-cold look. This cool-toned pop of pink goes well with a variety of makeup looks and can be built up from a clean daytime look to a more dramatic burst for evening. It's soft, pigmented and great for your skin. I love it!

Luxury Lip Gloss in "Sugar Berry"

I am so obsessed with this gloss. Add it on top of your lipstick or wear it alone, either way you'll get a perfect splash of color. I love the shine it provides and how long it lasts. If you had to add one item to your everyday beauty routine, this should be it. I like layering it on top of Amanda's Gel Lip Liner in Naked for a more neutral tone at the office.
