Current Beauty Faves

I don’t usually do monthly faves, but I have been using some different things lately that I haven’t blogged about, so I thought I would share them today!



A couple of beauty tools that I have been loving is this Bare Minerals Precision Face Brush and this teeny little Micro Mini Beauty Blender.  I recently decided to part with my 8 year old Bare Minerals Flawless Face Brush (it was so scratchy and the handle was coming off) – and try out this new brush.  I like this brush so much more than the other one.  This is a flat top, angled foundation brush. It’s softer, the bristles are dense, and my powder foundation glides on so smoothly and evenly.  

I have also been loving this tiny beauty blender!  It is PERFECT for blending out undereye concealer.  Unlike the original beauty blender, I do not dampen this because I don’t want to sheer out my concealer.  I use it dry and gently pounce it underneath my eyes, and it effortlessly blends out the product.  Love this.


I’m not that big into perfume- I usually stick with Nirvana White or Coco Mademoiselle, but I have been loving this Tory Burch scent.  It is very floral with a hint of citrus.  It lasts all day and I just love the look of the bottle.  This is a mini size that I got in a set.  I would love to purchase the full size!
I have also been wearing the Natural Beauty Lipstick by Essence almost every day.  I just talked about this in my Fall Lippies post.  This lipstick is so hydrating, like tinted balm, and it is so pretty.  It is the perfect neutral thing to throw on with anything.  These lipsticks are bomb, and super affordable ($3)!

Here’s an oldie but a goodie- this Aussie 5 Minute Miracle Moist Conditioning Treatment. I used to love this way back when- and I still love to use it! It leaves my hair soft and moisturized, I love the smell, and it’s cheap! Under $5 for a two pack.


Lastly is this Becca Blushed With Light Palette.  This is a cute little palette with three blush colors – Wisteria (light matte rose), Songbird (peach shimmer), and Snapdragon (coral with golden shimmer).  I love everything I’ve ever tried from Becca, and this palette is no exception.  These colors are beautiful and so blendable.  The colors are so different from each other, and that’s why I love this so much.  I think I paid $17 for this?  It was a steal.  Hopefully Sephora puts it back in stock soon!

Here are some swatches of the blush palette and the lipstick:
