To the Favorites! LORAC PRO Palette 2: I’ve been reaching for this palette the most this past month. It has 8 matte shades and 8 shimmer shades for many, many looks. Extremely hyper pigmented and buttery shadows make this one of my all time favorite palettes. Available at Sephora and Ulta. HADA LABO TOKYO Replenishing Hydrator: I gave this a try upon recommendation from uppiesbeads59 and have really enjoyed it. I
January Favorites! Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer: Absolutely love these. I’ve become too lazy to put on body lotion with my hands! I bought a 3 pack at Costco of this scent and have also tried the aloe version. Available at drugstores. Wonder Cloth: My favorite washcloth for removing all makeup. Great texture and doesn’t seem to stain even after removing jet black eye make-up. Available here. Nads Facial Wax
Some of my favorite products and unique shades to use for a green eye look. 24 hr Color Tattoo in the shade Ready, Set, Green: This is a great long lasting base for shadow or worn alone. These can dry out quickly but I can usually wipe off the top layer and use it what is underneath with no problem. This shade seems to be unavailable but this one is
Summer is finally over and I’m looking forward to cooler weather. This month, I have a little bit of everything. Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie by Lush: I love the texture and light floral scent of this product. You don’t need much so it lasts a long time. One of my favorite Lush products. Intensive Nurturing Body Balm by Perlier: I got this in a sample box and am absolutely
To the list – BUMBLE AND BUMBLE A Tint of Brown Hair Powder: I love this tinted dry shampoo. It cost more than the tinted Batiste which I use regularly but it can cast a grayish residue and this does not. Comes in various shades, available at Sephora for $36 and salons. Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp & Hair Serum Concentrate: I’ve just started using this this month and it’s
Much loved (and very worn) June Favorites! Pureology Pure Volume Shampoo: I absolutely love this shampoo and will definitely keep buying it. It’s taking me months to get through this giant bottle. It’s from the pink range for fine, color-treated hair and I love the way by hair styles after I use it. Pureology is also a vegan brand. Available in salons and Ulta. Ojon Dry Recovery Revitalizing Moisture
Another month of favorites and another addition to the vintage cookbook collection. The Delectable Past is a delightful cookbook of Old World and Early American recipes. To my favorites! Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue by Alterna: This super moisturizing hair mask does wonders for my hair. You massage it in before bed and wash it out in the morning for super soft hair. Available at Ulta and Sephora. Illamasqua blusher
Voluminous Butterfly Mascara by L’OREAL: It took me a couple of tries to master the wand but once I did, I got massive lashes. The regular Voluminous mascara has long been one of my favorites so I new that I would like the formulation. Give it a go! Available at drugstores or online. Found this cast iron statue of Ulysses S. Grant at an estate sale recently.
My favorites this month has to be the cool stuff I bought at IMATS NYC. I’ve been using everything here this month except for the lashes. Hakuhodo Makeup Brushes and Case: The primary reason I went to IMATS was to buy these brushes. They are the finest brushes I’ve ever owned and I love using them! Each one is handmade in Japan. They’re unbelievably soft. Expensive and worth it.
I took advantage of Ulta’s 20% discount event. Always the best time to pick up my favorite products and try a few new ones at a discounted price. Batiste Dry Shampoo: My favorite budget dry shampoo. I’ve gone through more cans than I can count. I use the dark brown shade. John Frieda Luminous Glaze: This is a clear shine hair gloss. I’ve never tried this before but I look
