Friday FAVES

Lately I’ve been using some new products (and some old faves), and I thought I would share them with you all on this lovely Friday!

I LOVE me some beachy waves pretty much all year round, and I really like using a texturizing spray like this one from LUSH.  This is their Sea Salt Spray, which gives amazing beachy texture and a grapefruit scent.  I love this product because even if you spray it on dry hair, it dries matte and doesn’t look gel-like.  Ew.  It just gives you piece-y waves.

For my face, I have been using this new Urban Decay One and Done Hybrid Complexion Perfector, which is kind of like a cross between a tinted moisturizer and a foundation.  It gives sheer coverage, but is so lightweight and PERFECT for summer.  I will have a full review of this coming up on Monday so don’t miss that one!  

Another product that is a must-have for me this summer is highlight.  I am a bit highlight crazed at the moment, but nothing beats the Sephora Collection Radiant Luminizing Drops in Morning Light.  This is a liquid highlighter and the color is a cross between champagne and gold.  It gives that wet looking sheen (no glitter) that I am after.  I freakin’ love this stuff, and you get so much product.  Here’s a swatch:


Something else that I have been loving is the Loreal Silkissime Eyeliner in Highlighter.  This is a pinky-gold eyeliner pencil that is so creamy, and SO PRETTY in the inner corner of my eyes.  It almost had an irridescence to it and it really brightens nicely.  Here’s a swatch:


I haven’t been using false lashes a lot lately, but I have been using this Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Mascara a ton.  This mascara really makes my lashes look thick and fluffy, but still natural.  It’s not clumpy at all, and it holds my curl all day. 

On my eyelids, MAC’s Satin Taupe Eyeshadow has been my go-to.  This is one of my favorite MAC shades, and it’s a true taupe with some silver shimmer.  It’s a frost, so it gives off such a nice sheen.  I’ve been wearing this on my lid with Espresso (a deep brown matte) in my crease almost every day.  Here’s a swatch of Satin Taupe:

I recently got to try out a Sunday Riley product from my Play! By Sephora box, and this is the Good Genes Serum.  In the 8 days that I have used this product, it has changed my skin.  It has made my skintone more even and super smooth, and has begun to fade some of my dark spots/freckles.  I am amazed by this product and I can’t wait to purchase the full size!

My last favorite is a perfume, and this is Chloe Roses de Chloe.  This perfume just smells like you walked through a rose garden.  The scent is very delicate and feminine, and I just love it. The bottle is really pretty too.

What are some of your recent favorites?

Thanks for reading! xx
