Current Favorites

Hi Beauties!

I Hope your all having a fabulous weekend! I actually can't get over this cold weather. One day its 85 the next its 50. I can't even deal messes with my face, head, and my flowers ;/. On a positive note I wanted to share with you some of my current obsessions considering I've been lacking on the monthly posts so I kind of consolidated it down to some of my current favorites until I get back in to my routinely monthly favorites. 

Firstly my Clarisonic Mia 2 has definitely been a favorite of mine since I got it back in January. I honestly don't know what I even did without it. My skin has never been better and it has made such a dramatic difference in my appearance and texture! Its definitely worth the price.

Essies All in one Base coat is probably one of my most surprised products of the list meaning I didn't think it was actually going to work. This base coat not only preps and protects your nails before painting but it also strengthens, hardens, and since I started using it my nails haven't stopped growing. I find myself having to trim them down once a week at least because they grow way to fast. but they've never been healthier

Got to be Volumizing powder has been something I've been reaching for a lot instead of back combing my hair I've been using this and its actually done a pretty good job, and its been a lot healthier for my hair. Although, it doesn't give huge huge amounts of volume it does give somewhat so my hair isn't flat to my head. 

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Eye Cream THIS is heavenly! I absolutely love it! I did purchase a full size this past week because it was that good. I only use it in the am and it has helped moisturize my eyes, and also helped make my concealer last throughout the day. 

Coastal Scents Blush palette although I haven't pulled it out a lot this past week I do really love it and I don't think its talked about enough. However I don't think its the most pigmented blush I've ever tried but I do really really like that it has every color right in one palette and majority of the colors are pretty nice just need to be a bit builded.

Mac lipstick in Force of love. This is a matte lipstick, I have been using this more then any other lipstick at the moment. I absolutely love how bright and bold it is. Definitely perfect for the spring/summer a great way to add a pop of color to your makeup!

Mac budding love lipglass is a really pretty lavender pink color. The color is sheer but it looks great just by itself. I've been loving this on days I don't want to much on my lips. This is limited edition as well as the force of love unfortunately, but they've both been lippies I just can not got enough of.

Ysl faubourg peach obvi in the name you know the color but this is. It's not like any other peach color. It is very bright. It really makes your lips pop and the formula feels like butter! I love it!

Mac tendertone in purring is a gorgeous sheer orange balm. Very moisturizing and loving this just this by itself on those warms days. (even tho lately we really haven't had one in a while)

Makeup Forever HD foundation. I've never really found a "holy grail" foundation yet. I do really like the luminous look this gives, and the color match is perfect on most days. It does look dewy on me which I do really like and the coverage is pretty great. It can be builded.

L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in iced latte. I can't explain to you how many times I've used this baby! I've used it to highlight under my brow, down my nose, in my inner corners of my eyes, and on my cheeks, EVERYWHERE you could imagine I've used it! Its so beautiful and looks so glowy and gorg! I highly recommend this eyeshadow it will last a forever plus its very versatile and beyond gorgeous.

Sonia Kashuk beauty blender. I really never thought too much about these. I figured nothing could be comparable to my Sigma f80 brush. It is very nice for my fuller coverage foundations but I don't prefer it with my lighter coverage foundations. I do really love the flawless look it gives and it applies my foundation very light weight therefore I'm not using as much as I would with my sigma brush. (yay for conserving product)

Fake & Bake Flawless. This has been my go to self tanner. I have leaned away from tanning and have been a self tanning junkie the past few months. I do hate the fact that I need to apply it every so often and it does only last maybe a week but in the end my skin is going to thank me.

Mac 168 brush has been my go to contour brush! I forgot how much I loved this brush. It works great to get in under your cheek bone, jawbone, and to contour your four head. 

What have you been loving lately?

    1. Thanks doll! I appreciate it! This weather just needs to make up its mind gives me a headache! :) lol

  3. I have been using the Got2Be Powderful for the last ages! It was great for bringing up my layers when I had them but then I got rid of them but I still like the way it does add a bit of volume when I apply it to my roots,but if you put on too much it can get very sticky :)


    1. YES! it can get sticky, but its better then always backcombing! :)
