Hi there!

Face and Favorites

Favorites! Favorites! I haven't done one of these in a while.

This is such an amazing moisturizer. It's not something I would recommend using on the entire body, but it works wonders on dry spots, knees, elbows, feet, and the face. It's comparable to a Vaseline, but 100x better. It has a very light scent, and a little goes a very long way.  I've used it a ton, and it hasn't caused any breakouts. I use this mostly at night, and problem spots are moisturized and taken care of come morning. Love love love. 

SO I'm a little conflicted about this powder. at $35, it's pretty expensive for what it is. It's also a very interesting consistency. In the pan, the powder is a pure, bright white. Upon touching, it feels like paper, yet feels slightly bouncy. Kind of like the Maybelline Bouncy Blushes, but a little less springy. You can dent the powder with a finger nail, but it doesn't crumble into pieces. Does that make sense? Anyway. It doesn't seem like the product would even work, but somehow adheres to the brush, and is beautifully transferred to the face. It's completely translucent, and gives a very subtle almost satin finish to the skin. I definitely do like this powder and will finish it. Not sure if it's a repurchase...

MAC "Well Dressed" Blush $21
A gorgeous satin-finish blush. It's a true pink, and very light in the pan. Initially I didn't think it would look too good on my yelllow-toned skin, but it works wonders. You could go rather heavy handed with this, and the product is build able. The color doesn't transfer bright pink to the skin, but rather brightens up the face. Repurchase forever. It's the only blush I've been using the last two months!

Ohhhh this concealer. Lives up beyond the hype. Super blendable, long lasting, and a little goes a long way. I wear the shade "custard". It would be nice if NARS came out with a squeezey tube of this concealer though. Something about using the wand and putting it back grosses me out a bit.

This was one of those products you pick up in line while waiting to pay. I was at Sephora a couple of weeks ago and figured since the little 0.5fl oz tube was only $10 (inexpensive by Sephora standards), I'd go ahead and give it a try. Ohhhhmygooodness this product is amazing. It advertises to be a 12 hour primer, and it absolutely is. I've been using this as a BB cream/light foundation and it's perfect. It has the coverage of a light foundation is build able. I love how this product lasts all day- I put on my makeup around 7am for work at 8. I get home around 9pm, and the makeup is still on. It controls oils really well too. I find that I only have to blot once a day, if at all (I have an oily T-zone). I couldn't be happier with the product. Also, the $10 for 0.5fl oz is a great deal, considering 

Deborah Lippmann "Blue Orchid" $18
This is the perfect spring pastel. The issue with so many pastel nail polishes, in my opinion anyway, is that they look super chalky. Or there's something going on with the consistency that makes it super streaky and hard to apply. Blue orchid has neither of these issues, and is the perfect balance between pastel and pigment. It's kind of similar to Essie's Bikini So Teeny, which I also love. The Essie polish has super fine shimmer/sparkles and is slightly darker and more periwinkle in comparison.

I purchased this perfume last year and have been obsessed with it since. I purchased this when I was looking for a floral/sweet perfume- something lighter than my beloved Flowerbomb.  The light scent is perfect for spring and summer. Also a bonus that the $69 buys you 3 fl 0z instead of the usual 1 oz.

Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
