Hello! It’s time for a monthly favorites post. I don’t usually do these, but I have been using a lot of new things this past month, and thought I could share them with you all!
First up is this liquid lipstick that I have been wearing almost every day. This is the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lovesick. This color is a cool toned mauve-y pink that is gorgeous.
The formula of these lipsticks are so lightweight, non-drying, and they stay on all day long. They don’t ever feel goopy or crusty. I just apply a very light layer, and the color stays put and fades very evenly- it doesn’t flake off or get patchy. Love the soft matte look of these.
Next up is the Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation.
I have been wanting to try this for so long, and after I tried out a sample, I knew I had to purchase the full-size. I wear the shade Ivory, and it’s just right. They have a lot of shades to choose from. The coverage is a solid medium, but it is buildable. It is very lightweight on the skin, and gives a nice satin finish. This is great for my dry skin.
The last makeup item I’ve been loving is the Chanel Brow Powder Duo in Brun.
This is a really nicely pigmented brow powder that is just the right color for my eyebrows. I fill in the middle to the tail end of my eyebrows with the deeper color, and then use the lighter color on the inner portion of my brows. I use short quick strokes. This powder lasts all day and looks really nice and natural.
I LOVE gray nail polish, and this one from L’Oréal named Greycian Goddess is so pretty and chic!
2 coats of this polish and it’s perfectly opaque. L’Oréal polishes are one of my favorite brands because they go on evenly, and I really like the brushes on them. They always have the prettiest colors, too!
I have been wearing my hair the same way I always do- I’m not too adventurous- I like beachy waves all the time. I usually take my curling wand and curl big chunks of hair to make waves. I usually just set it with hairspray- but lately I have been using this Ouai Haircare Wave Spray.
I got this as a sample (it’s a huge sample) from my Play by Sephora box a few months back, and I have been using this in my hair after curling to add some texture, and to bring out the waves. I LOVE this product and will definitely be purchasing the full size. The smell of this is AMAZING. I love to smell this in my hair throughout the day.
The last beauty product I have to share is this Philosophy Help Me Retinol Night Treatment.
My sister recommended this to me after telling me that it eliminated her dark circles (gasp), and raving to me about how much she liked it. She’s a skincare junkie and she really likes to make DIY products of her own, so when she was telling me I needed to try this, well, I just had to. I used this for 2 nights in a row and it lightened my circles. I could not believe it. I kept looking at myself the morning after I used it the second day, and I was amazed.
I have been told by dermatologists that dark circles are hereditary and that there isn’t anything out there that will lighten them. This stuff WORKS. I apply a very small amount (gotta ration this stuff) to my t-zone and a little bit under my eyes and it makes my skin look so good. My pores are starting to disappear and my overall skin appearance is just smoother. I now refer to this product as “magical unicorn cream”. Thanks Kimmy!
The last thing I have here are these hot pink flats. These are a cute and fun and I’ve been wearing them with everything! These are the Sam Edelman Felicia Flats. They come in a TON of different colors, but this shiny hot pink is just perfect for me.
So that’s it for my favorites! What have you been loving lately?
