This Months Favorites
I haven’t done a favorites in quite some time, but I’ve been using a lot of new products recently so I thought I would share. Some of these products I’ve had for awhile and recently just pulled them out again, others I got during Christmas so I’ve been using them for over a month, and can already tell that I’ll be using them for a long time.
Lavanilla Healthy Deodorant: I know its a little strange to have a deodorant in your favorites, BUT I’ve been trying to find a deodorant without aluminum, that still actually works, and I think this one takes the cake!
Philosophy Amazing Grace: If you have ever smelled this perfume before, then I think you will know why it is in my favorites. It’s the freshest and cleanest smelling perfume I have ever smelled.
Tarte Dreamer Cheek Stain: I have never really used a cheek stain or cream blush, just because they never seem to last long on me. However, this one is kind of a mix of both and it gives the most amazing glow to the skin and it actually lasts all day.
Tarte Maracuja Oil and Eye Cream: This stuff is great at moisturizing dry and dull skin. My skin is combination, so putting oil on can seem daunting, but it actually really helps keep the oil at bay and clear up and hyper-pigmentation. Also, the eye cream is really moisturizing and my under eye circles don’t seem as terrible as they used to.
MAC Cream Color Base in Hush: I was watching a Tanya Burr makeup tutorial recently and she was using this. It made me remember how beautiful of a highlight it was. I used to use it all the time (as you can probably tell). Then it just sort of fell behind in my makeup drawer. Now I’ve been using it to get a pretty soft glow on my cheeks and I love it.
Origins Clear Improvements Charcoal Mask: If you have blackheads/breakouts/oily skin, go get this stuff. I use it 1-2 times a week and it has made such a difference in the way my skins looks. Its amazing.
Maybelline Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser: I’ve been seeing this stuff all over Youtube, and once I ran out of my Clinique under eye concealer, I thought I should try it out. It’s really worth the hype. It covers my dark circles really well and it doesn’t crease and its SUPER affordable.
Clinique Superbalanced Foundation: I’ve tried a few high end foundations recently and just haven’t been impressed. However, I think Clinique just always gets it right when it comes to foundation. This stuff makes my skin look smooth and even, but my freckles still poke through, which I love. It also lasts all day, or at least 8 hours, so you don’t have to touch up throughout the day. Convenient!
Pacifica Eyeshadow in Ethereal: I recently subscribed to Ipsy and this was in the last bag. I saw Ingrid Nilson use this and say it was ‘super pigmented’. So when I got it, I was expecting a really shimmery, long lasting eyeshadow. I was halfway disappointed. It isn’t very pigmented, but it is very long lasting. HOWEVER, it looks so pretty as a inner corner highlight. The fact that it isn’t very pigmented doesn’t make it so ‘in your face’. It also looks really pretty on the cheekbones and tip of your nose. So I ended up really not being that disappointed
I hope you guys enjoyed my favorites and let me know if you are loving any of the same products as me this month too!
