Favourites : Beauty Products On Rotation

It's been far too long since I shared my current beauty faves. See previous entries here + here.
Being totally honest, I receive a lot of goodies to try. Some from the creators themselves, others from friends who have tried something, loved it and are not adverse to asking for numerous samples from Sephora which in turn they send to me
It's hard to weed through everything and of course, I have my constant favourites.
But lately, a few new to me products have made their way onto my daily rotation.
I am a creature of habit so this truly is a big deal.
Almost like a say, a Black Friday big deal. 
Beauty Finds

1. I received Redken's pillow proof as part of my fashion survival bag at WMCFW and it is THE most amazing product. It extends your blow dry or your "I really should wash it today hair". 
It is available in the U.S. at Ulta {here} and in Canada at salons that carry Redken product. I also noticed a few beauty supply outlets locally may have - still need to check that out.
-- $18 US retail --

2. I have been a longtime lover of Laura Mercier's secret camouflage but wanted to try something new. I picked up Clinique's line smoothing concealer {I chose "medium beige"} for 2 reasons - 1. because it said line smoothing and 2. because it was the most fair priced in a tube concealer. Very happy with this purchase.
-- $22 US retail -- 

3. Wow. Am I ever late to this Fresh party. This is my new how did I ever live without it product. Moisturizing, easy to apply and adds a bit of colour. Super perfect for "non make up girls" too. I bought a fun Christmas set at Sephora {I don't see it online but it was $44 CAD} that gave me 4 different shades in smaller sizes {petal is my favourite so far} and the lip scrub which I have yet to try. Love, love.
-- $22 US retail -- 

4. KeraFiber's Protect and Review Keratin + Argan Oil. 
It's no secret that I am an argan oil lover. My hair is ridiculously coarse, dry and quite frizzy until tamed. This product is light, smells fantastic and leaves even my crazy mane smooth. Would definitely re-purchase. Available on-line only, here
Note: They also have 2 other products I am quite interested in hearing more about - the dry shampoo and the hair building kit. If anyone has tried it, would love to know what you think.
-- $29.95 US retail --

5. I admit it. This one, YSL's Babydoll is the one repeat. Only because I love it THAT much. I have tried to replace it because it is quite pricey but nothing works better for me personally. 
The other regular mascaras make my sensitive eyes feel like there is something in them all day. Hate that. 
-- $30.00 US retail -- 

6. Have you heard of NudeStix? {pssst - giving a lip/cheek duo away here!} Likely, not yet but you will. I just saw the brand in Sephora locally and on-line. So exciting as the brand was developed by 2 sisters, along with their mom, and is Canadian! The belief is that nude, natural looking make up is better - and also beyond cute packaging that transports so well.
I tried the lip + cheek, eye and concealer pencils. All very nice and multi-functional.
-- $24.00 US retail -- 

7. Lastly, if you follow me on instagram you will already have seen me showing off how incredible the Dior Star foundation is. I know it will not be a fit for everyone - no product is, but this one is definitely worth a try. Sephora is excellent at providing samples, do it! The price may appear steep but a little goes a long way.
I was asked the other day why my skin looked so "glowy". WIN. 
-- $50.00 US retail --
