Hello everyone! I thought it'd be fun to make a list of some of my current favorites. This is a pretty long post so be prepared! Most of these products I've had for awhile, but I'm just rediscovering my love for them!
These masks are so much fun to use! Plus there are so many choices! My favorite ones are the olive oil, dead sea and charcoal & black sugar. I got these at Walmart and they were only 70 cents, so it's definitely worth checking out in my opinion! They have tons of different choices that can work for anyone's skin issues! I've been thinking of doing a big post on these masks and more, so if you are interested let me know!
Aussie Aussome Volume Hairspray
I'm usually not a person that uses hairspray. It always makes my hair have a gross texture and I feel like it just didn't work for me. However, I recently picked this up because I have "straight across" bangs and I'm having trouble keeping them in the same spot. I used this and I really love it! It really holds my hair well and it does give me great volume, especially when I straighten my hair and it's looking kind of flat.
MAC Archie Girls Blush - Cream Soda
I really hate showing you guys a product that isn't available anymore, but I really couldn't find a better blush recently. This was part of the Archie Girls Collection at MAC last February. I'll admit, the first selling point of this product was definitely the adorable packaging. But this blush is so flattering towards spring and summer and I couldn't be more happy with it! It looks especially good if you have fair skin.
It has the perfect mixture of peach and coral. It's so light and gorgeous! This picture really doesn't do it justice. I forgot to take a picture of the name (sorry!), but it's Cream Soda. If you guys are interested in this blush, let me know! I can do a future post on dupes!
Urban Decay - Naked 2 Palette
I know this product isn't anything new but I thought I'd throw this in as well! I have a lot of neutral eyeshadow palettes and for a long time the original Naked was always my favorite. (It still is my all time favorite!)
I know it doesn't look like it, but recently I have been reaching for this palette a LOT! I only wear eyeshadow about once a week, but when I do I always find myself using at least one color from this palette. I really like Foxy and Bootycall for an inner corner or a brow highlight. And I'm always using the infamous Half Baked as a lid color!
MUFE HD Microperfecting Primer
I already did a detailed review about this product that you can check out here! But in short, this is an amazing primer. It really diffuses redness in my skin and makes my foundation stay on for a very long time!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder - Dim Light
This product took me forever to purchase because of the intimidating price tag! But I am so glad I finally did! I was worried that it would just be a standard setting powder, but it's really the best I've used!
The color doesn't look like anything amazing but it honestly works so well and is so beautiful in person. It really blurs imperfections and sets your foundation flawlessly, and it gives you a nice glow without making you look shiny!
I got it in Dim Light and I'm positive that I'll be purchasing the other shades in the future!
Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
I really love this concealer. It's super creamy, as the name states. It's great for highlighting as well if you get a lighter shade.
I'm in the shade "Honey" it matches my skin tone fairly well and covers up any dark spots I have!
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h Foundation
This is my all time favorite foundation. The price is a bit scary but I'm so happy I finally purchased it. It stays on my skin for so long and makes my skin look completely flawless. I only wear it for special occasions because I love it so much and don't want to waste it. The formula is so smooth and blendable. If you're interested in this foundation definitely buy it! I don't think you will be disappointed!
MAC Fluidline - Dipdown
I've had this fluidline for awhile. I purchased it to use for my eyebrows but at first I thought it was too dark. However recently I started using it again and I love it!
I only apply it onto the ends of my brows to make the arch more predominant and darker to create a bit of an ombre effect. It's really great and makes my eyebrows look clean and perfect! I only dab the brush into the pot lightly though, because if I swipe it I always get too much product!
Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
This product is beautiful! I'm really a big fan of matte bronzers because I don't like too much shimmer on my face. This gives such a nice, light contour. Plus, did I mention it smells just like chocolate?! I swear, sometimes I think this is just pure Nestle Chocolate Milk powder.
If you're a little bit tanner though I would go for the regular Chocolate Soleil because I don't think this one would show up very well! But with my pale skin tone the Milk Chocolate Soleil is perfect!
Benefit Watts Up Highlighter
This highlighter is pretty unique for me. Most of my highlighters are powder and liquid. But this one is a cream in the form of a stick. Last year I ended up getting 2 samples of it for my birthday and I fell in love with it. So I decided to buy the full size!
It's really one of those highlighters that you can tell you're wearing. The color is a beautiful champagne. (I haven't used this one yet, I'm still working on the last sample!) I'm not sure if you're supposed to apply the stick straight to your face, but I use my fingers instead! Sometimes I will set it with a powder highlight just to make it more intense, but it really doesn't need it! It's easy to blend and looks so gorgeous when light's hit your face. Plus it doesn't make you look like a disco ball, which is always nice, right?
Benefit Erase Paste
I was looking for a good under-eye concealer for a long time. I don't really suffer from bags, or extremely dark circles but I wanted something that would brighten up my eyes!
Erase paste does an amazing job at brightening and highlighting under my eyes! It's so creamy and easy to blend and it's really noticeable (at least to me!) when I'm not wearing it! I was worried that since it was so creamy it would settle into my fine lines but I really haven't had any trouble with it at all! I always make sure to set it with a powder, but even when I don't, I never notice it really smearing or moving!
I initially wanted to purchase the lightest color but I saw this shade in the store and figured it would be light enough to start out with. It really is perfect for me but I'd like to try the lightest shade as well in the future just to see what it would look like!
Katy Perry Killer Queen Perfume
I am a huge fan of Katy Perry and when she came out with this perfume I knew I had to have it! I'm bad at describing scents, but here are the notes!
Top Notes: Wild berries, dark plum, and bergamot
Heart Notes: Celosia, Sambac jasmine, and rainbow plumeria
Base Notes: Cashmere, patchouli and liquid praline
I really like this perfume, especially towards the evening. It's very feminine without making you smell childish. The staying power is pretty decent but I sometimes have to freshen it up throughout wearing it so I would recommend having a roller ball! The bottle is adorable as well!
I have two current favorite lipsticks and they're both from MAC! I have so many lipsticks but if I had to choose a favorite brand I think I'd always choose them. They have such a wide range of beautiful colors and finishes that you can never go wrong.
My first is a shade called taupe, which is true to the name! It's a pinky brown nude with a matte finish that is gorgeous. I feel like it's best to wear this around the cooler months but I never hesitate to wear it anytime! Makeup has no rules!
Up the Amp
My second is Up the Amp! It's a gorgeous purple with pink undertones and it's an amplified finish. It's so gorgeous and definitely my go to if I want something a little more bright!
Bath & Body Works Candles
I've had these two candles for about a year now and I completely forgot I owned them! I'm so happy I found them because the smell of both of them are absolutely amazing. Market Peach and Pineapple Mango are great scents for the warmer months and always put me in a happy mood. They both smell so delicious and make me definitely want to eat some peaches and pineapple!
Well, that was my long list of current favorites! I hope you all enjoyed! Let me know if you want to see more in-depth reviews of any of these products!
