Happy Friday, guys! I just finished up my Christmas shopping (FINALLY!) and am feeling good 🙂
So, what better than to share my current favs and finds with you! A lot of my current favorites are actually recurring favorites… oldies, but goodies… so you might have seen them before! I still wanted to share though because if they keep popping up in my every day makeup, they must be great, right?!
First up, I know I already reviewed this, but I want to emphasize just how much I love this Simple Micellar Water. I have been using it to remove makeup, but also use it to “cleanse” whenever I’m a. feeling lazy or b. need an extra cleanse throughout the day for some reason! I know it’s a “lazy-girl” product but, hey, if it makes me more likely to keep my skin clean, I’m all for it.
ELF’s Lip Exfoliator. I had been wanting to try this for a while. The scent and taste are a little plastic-like, but I can ignore that for the result. I find it to be a great exfoliator and love using it right before I apply a lip product or go out- I feel like my lips look more naturally plump and pink! Added bonus for me!
Oh and this has definitely been well loved. It’s decided, the Anastasia Contour Kit has to be my next review. I need to show you how exactly I use it. The top right highlight (WHY aren’t more people raving about this as a cheek highlight) and bottom middle contour shade are the ones I use most. I also adore using this palette on my eyes which makes it even more worth the money!
I know I raved about these in my First Impressions, but I still can’t get over the Colour Pop Blushes. I have used the heck out of the shade Cruel Intentions for a natural looking “I’ve been out in the cold” flush, but I honestly think the texture and finish of theses blushes are what make them amazing more so than that color in particular. I believe this shade is limited edition, but their blushes in general are worth a try. What other shades should I try?
Alright, this one is actually a newbie for me. I just got the swatches and review up on the blog the other day and am already in love with the Too Faced Melted Fig Liquid Lipstick. It is a wearable, yet deep berry shade that I have nothing like in my collection. I wore it out on our recent date night and fell in love.
And finally, last but not least, Soap & Glory. I recently tried (and reviewed, of course) their holiday gift set and in general, I am loving all of the products for their smell alone. The scrub, though, surprised me. I didn’t rave about it in my review, but have come to appreciate it more now that I see a difference in my keratosis pilaris (aka chicken skin) on the back of my arms!
As for some random finds this week… Well, they are all about food. Who would have guessed?
Me, I could have totally guessed that.
First, I am obsessed with these DIY Agate Cookies by Alana Jones – I can’t get over how beautiful they are, they don’t look real. I can’t quite think of a special occasion to make these for, yet, but I am going to at some point!
Apparently I need to host a brunch or something, because I also really want to create these Veggie Stuffed Baked Egg Boats for guests. Thanks Cotter Crunch for making me hungry 🙂
That’s all for now… I guess I have rambled enough for one Friday afternoon, haven’t I?
