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 use it every morning as a hydrating serum. I’m testing a couple of other Hyaluronic Acid serums at the moment but I would repurchase this one.
MAC Prep + Prime + Fix+: After several months of using Urban Decay setting spray, I’m back to Fix+ this month. Love, love, love. Available at MAC.
MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara: I ran out of my favorite Clinique Bottom Lash mascara and picked up this. Works great on the bottom lashes. It doesn’t run and I love the brush. Available at MAC.
MAC PRO Longwear Paint Pot in Frozen Violet: I’m a longtime massive fan of the MAC paint pot. This beautiful violet shade is great under purple/gray shades or on its own. Available at MAC.
Clarins Instant Concealer: I love this creamy concealer from Clarins. It’s lightweight, smooth and doesn’t settle into fine lines. You only need a little so this tube goes a long, long way. I use the shade 01. Available at Clarins counters.
L’Oreal Paris True Match Lumi Cushion Buildable Luminous Foundation: I’ve been testing out a bunch of drugstore foundations lately and keep grabbing this one. I would say it’s light to medium coverage. A Beauty Blender for application rather than a brush works best for me. I think the finish is more satin than luminous. I have the shade W2. Available at drugstores.
|L: Revlon Carnival Spirit, R: Lipstick Queen Sunny Rouge|
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick: I picked up Carnival Spirit earlier this month and usually leave the house with this one in my pocket. In the tube it’s a shocking orange/red but it goes on very, very sheer. The Revlon Super Lustrous line is my favorite drugstore lipstick range. Available at drugstores.
Lipstick Queen Sinner Lipstick in Sunny Rouge: For a brighter red this month, I’ve been reaching for Sunny Rouge. It’s very opaque yet moisturizing. Love this color! Available online or Ulta.
NYX Sculpt & Highlight Face Duo: I’m loving this fairly new release from NYX. I’m a big fan of cream contours and highlighters over powder ones. One end is the contour color and the other has a corresponding highlight. I have the lightest shade 01 Taupe/Ivory and absolutely love it. Available at NYX displays.
