Hello my beautiful friends! I hope you had a good week and had a chance to play with your own stash. Here we are with my eighteenth weekly favorites post. I’ve got a good collection of favorites to share with you this week. Let’s jump in!
This week I’ve been using my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette. More specifically I’ve been really loving the blush, Mood Exposure, and the finishing powder, Diffused Light. They have such a beautiful yet subtle effect on the skin. Both of my Edit palettes from Hourglass are perfect for those ‘makeup no makeup’ days. It’s you, but enhanced subtly.
For my primer this week I’ve been mixing two together. I would do one pump of my Too Faced Hangover RX with half a pump of my Becca Backlight Priming Filter. Sometimes when I use the Backlight Priming Filter, I feel that I look too glowy but when I mix it with my Too Faced primer, it helps to subdue the glow. I really am loving this mixture for the summer. Glowy skin is definitely in.
I am LOVING this highlight for the summer! Earlier, I celebrated hitting pan on Instagram. I have never hit pan on any of my highlighters until now, and I haven’t had this highlighter for very long. It is the Maybelline Master Chrome highlighter with NikkieTutorials that you can only get from Ulta. It gives the most gorgeous glow to the skin, perfect for the summertime. Plus, since it’s drugstore it is affordable! Win!
I picked up this oil during the last Sephora VIB sale. This is the Sephora C+E Ultra Glow Serum. It costs $20 and you get 1.01 fl oz of product. It’s a step I have come to like during my morning skincare routine. It gives me a nice subtle glow and doesn’t look oily one bit. That had been my one worry when I purchased it but my fear was washed away after the first few uses. You need the tiniest bit to cover your face. I use this before I put on my moisturizer and other oils and serums for the day.
I’ve been loving one perfume this week. The Vera Wang Princess Power perfume has been my choice every morning. I love the Vera Wang Princess perfumes. The original Princess perfume was my very first real perfume. I still like the original perfume but I have a few of the different versions on the perfume. Sometimes you can find them at a Marshalls or Ross because they are constantly rotating through the scents.
I picked up the Benefit 3D BrowTones when I was in Palm Springs for a bit of a mini vacation. I just reviewed it, actually, and if you would like to see the full review of this product click here. I wanted a brow gel that had color to it so in a rush I could just use that and not worry about using a pencil or powder or anything else. It has taken some getting used to but I really do like it.
I have loved the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser almost since it first came out. It was the first dark circle concealer that I used that I actually liked and that actually worked. Unlike many, I don’t mind the little half ball at the top that deposits the product. This lasts me a good amount of time because you don’t need too much product to get good coverage. The twist up is easy to control and makes it simple to get the right amount of product for application. I’ve been using this a lot this week because I decided I need to take a break from my Revolution Conceal and Define concealer so that I could play with the other concealers I had.
I rarely, actually I think I never, have ever had a favorite brush for a week or a month for that matter. I’m talking about my ELF Ultimate Blending Brush except I don’t really use it for blending. I discovered this week that this makes the best bronzer brush for me. It diffuses the product nicely and helps it blend seamlessly into my skin. It’s soft but sturdy so blending becomes really easy and it looks so natural once I’m done that I just don’t think I can put it down! And for the price? You just can’t get any better especially for only $6!
That’s it my beautiful friends! What have you been loving this week?
