My Beauty Favs

There are some make-up products that I absolutely cannot live without!! Well, perhaps I could live without a few of these, but I don’t want to! Check out all of my favorite go-to products at the moment:

  1. Urban Decay Brow Box in Brown Sugar – I use this brow box every single day! It includes everything you need to groom, tweeze and fill-in your eyebrows. It even includes a tiny angled brush!
  2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Trinidad – This foundation goes on very smooth and sheer, which works well for me since I don’t necessarily need full coverage. I normally set it with Mac’s Mineralized Skin Finish.
  3. Mac Mineralized Skin Finish in Deep Dark – I’ve been using this powder for a few years now and I still love it. For days when I don’t want to go through the process of beating my entire face, I will wear this alone instead of foundation. In the sun, it has a little shimmer to it, which gives a nice glow.
  4. NARS Blush in Amour – I just recently purchased this blush, but I am loving it so far. Even though I have to reapply it during the day, I find that it is very pigmented.
  5. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner Pen in Black – I’ve tried a lot of eyeliners, but I love this one because once you put it on, it does not move! I have oily eyelids so for the most part my eyeliners usually transfer onto my upper lids when I don’t wear eyeshadow. I don’t have that problem with this eyeliner. Feels like I am lining my eyes with a sharpie!
  6. Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara in Black – I love YSL’s Radical Noir Mascara, but since that is $30 and this one is only $6…I am settling for the Maybelline Falsies Flared! Regardless, this mascara is great. It elongates my lashes and if I apply more than one coat then I get great volume without looking overdone. I definitely think this is one of the best drug store mascaras…
  7. Revlon Lipstick in Fuchsia Fusion – I had been wearing Mac’s Girl About Town, but I find that it can be quite drying so when I heard that Revlon had a color that was similar, I decided to try it. I love this color, it really brightens my face and makes me feel like a true grown up!

I am normally a gloss girl, but somehow lipsticks have crept their way into my life…Lol. I didn’t list any eyeshadows because I haven’t been wearing eyeshadows much lately. When I do, I either use the Urban Decay Naked Palette or the NYX Runway Collection Palette in Champagne and Caviar (both are neutral colored palettes).

June – July Beauty Haul/Favorites

I’m not going to list all of the beauty products I’ve purchased over the past 2 months, but I will list the ones I think are noteworthy. Let’s start with the make-up…

Make-Up:

Urban Decay Naked Palette – I’ve been wanting this palette for quite some time. It has very nuetral colors that work well for me since I don’t wear bright colors on my eyes. It comes with an eyeshadow brush and a small bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Great for brown smokey eye looks. (Sephora, $48)

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner Pen – I love this eyeliner. It goes on very smooth and is quite easy to use. I have oily lids, and with many other eyeliners, if I don’t have on eyeshadow my eyeliner transfers onto my upper lid, which looks terrible. This eyeliner doesn’t do that at all. Loves it! (Target, About $7)

Maybelline Falsies Flared – I would def say that this mascara is comparable to many department store mascaras (i.e. YSL Faux Cils, which I’ve previously blogged about). This mascara elongates my lashes and gives me a lot of volume without clumping. (Target About $6)

Nail Polish:

  1. China Glaze – Fairy Dust (Sally’s, About $3.99)
  2. Revlon – Pink Chiffon (Target, About $3.75)
