I kind of fell off of the monthly favorites and beauty talk train there for a while, but I’m back and excited and hope I can at least do a few months in a row! Also maybe this will finally be the year I make a video of my favorites instead of a blog post. Time will tell.
Dr. Brandt Luminizer Primer. This primer is so nice! It feels so good on my skin and gives my foundation a pretty little glow. Its expensive and I’m still deciding if its worth the price, but since I have it – I do like it! Will I repurchase? Not sure. I feel like for now this will be the primer I save for special occasions.
Tarte Tarteist Mascara. I didn’t have high hopes for this mascara, but I should have because its great. It isn’t as much voluminous as it is lengthening so I wear it when I’m doing more of a natural look and want long pretty lashes. I definitely recommend this.
Big Sexy Hair, Push Up. When I’m pregnant my hair gets a lot thicker (and so far has stayed that way!) and with my last pregnancy it also got really, really silky. It feels amazing, but it has no texture or hold to it at all. A friend recommended this and its saved me. It puts texture in my hair and now it will finally hold a hairstyle!
Real Techniques brush in 300. Ok, I admit. I bought this brush because of the pretty handle. But its actually a really good brush! I typically have great luck with Real Technique brushes and this one is no different. I’ve tried using it for a few different purposes and my favorite is when I apply my all-over powder. Its soft, pretty and does the job.
Too Faced Best Year Ever Shadow Palette. My sister gave me this for my birthday in December and I haven’t stopped using it. Look at all those pretty colors! There are mattes and shimmers and they all have great color payoff and the packaging is adorable. My favorite shades are Secret Santa (fun transition color), Workshop, Dollhouse and Elfie Selfie.
Physicians Formula Blush in Plum Rose. Have you smelled these? The smell alone is a big selling point to me. I’ve had this blush for quite a while but haven’t used it much because it looks like a really light bronzer to me. The other day I tried it out again and now I’m mad at myself for avoiding it so long. Its not bronze at all. Its really pretty dark rose color thats so flattering. I love this.
Pur Bronze and Brighten Palette. I’m not so much a fan of this bronzer. Its pretty, but its far too shimmery/sparkly for my liking – especially for a bronzer. The bronze color does make a pretty eyeshadow color though! The blush and highlight though… oh my gosh. Super pigmented and creamy and BEAUTIFUL.
Wet’n’Wild Liquid Catsuit in Rebel Rose. I wanted to try some cheap lipsticks that claim to be long wearing. I found a winner. There are a lot of different colors but this one is definitely my favorite I’ve tried.
Bed Head Small Talk. Again, wanting more texture and wanting to add a little somethin’-somethin’ to my hair I tried this and I LOVE IT. It also smells incredible. I apply two pumps into my wet, clean hair and it works wonders. It has many claims and I really feel like it holds up to all of them!!
