Recent Beauty Favorites
Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette: I'm a huge fan of natural eyes mainly because it brings out the color of my eyes (they're blue-green). This palette is everything I look for in a palette. It's got shimmer shades, matte shades, that one perfect brightening shade and cutesy names. Basically, it's my new favorite palette. (I'm also a huge fan of the Naked Basics Palette).
Dior Diorshow Mascara: I tried this mascara last year when I got it for my birthday in my Sephora purchase as a free sample. I loved it then and I love it now. Once you get past the smell of this product (it smells like the Dior perfume) it's a wonderful mascara that provides a lovely daytime look. | For other references I use three mascaras to get a full stage look without falsies. Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelée in Poppy Paradise: You guys, I have been looking for this stuff for about a month now and I saw it when I stumbled into Sephora on Thrusday behind the counter and dashed over to buy it! Boy am I glad I did. I'll admit it's a little different. It's definitely scary in the pot and leaves a an imprint on the finger you use to apply it (easily remedied by washing your hands) but when you put it on it is wonderful! The color pay off is great, it's build able and it just glides on! So happy with this purchase!
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in True Love: It's time to blame Esteé for another purchase (it's a total of two in this post). She raves about the Tarte blushes and I have to say that she is right on the money with them. The color I have, True Love, a red-pink, is a bit stiff but with a bit of brush work it transfers wonderfully. My next one will be in Fearless, its a gorgeous pink color that is calling my name!!
Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush: This is the product I liked least of this bunch but that's not to say that I didn't like it. It's a lovely color, has a nice shimmer but up against the Tarte and Josie Maran blushes it falls short. It's wear time isn't as long and it's color power just doesn't match the other two.
Urban Decay All Nigther Makeup Setting Spray: This is another product Estee has raved about (here) and I love it. I'm not one to powder set my foundation because I like the look of a dewy face so this stuff is perfect. It keeps my makeup set perfectly and still gives me the dewy look I love.
Elizabeth and James Nirvana White Rollerball Perfume: I wish I could send you things to smell because this, my dear readers, smells so good! I love it to pieces. It's edgy, sensual and musky yet it's still feminine and elegant. It's a change from my Dot by Marc Jacobs rollerball but I love it! (Thanks Esteé, Fleur and Amelia for the recomendation)!
Bonus Buys: Sephora Lipstick and Maybelline Color Whisper: I have no other explanations except that I'm a lipstick lover.
(Not talked about: Naked Beauty Balm, will update soon!)
