Here are a few of my favorite things… from May.
I was so excited to hear that Urban Decay was releasing a blush line. The Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour powder blush line has twelve shades with some pretty scandalous names (umm quickie?!). I knew I wanted to pick up one of these blushes with a Sephora gift card my husband and daughter got me for Mothers (awwww). Bittersweet is a straight up purple blush. I have nothing like Bittersweet in my collection and I was really drawn to the color so in my collection it went.
I have a confession. I have spent the past month binge watching Gilmore Girls. Every free second I get I am pretty much watching Gilmore Girls. This has made for an unproductive month. I have now completed all seven seasons (still not sure how I feel about it all) and am ready to attempt to be a little more productive. So today I sit here to tell you January was a pretty good month for beauty products. I have come across some goodies that I am super excited to share with all you other addicts out there.
Hellooo my beautiful blushing ladies
Milani not only came out with new Matte Lipsticks (check out my review here), but they also re-released three shades of the previously limited addition Rose Powder Blushes into the permanent collection. Romantic Rose, Tea Rose, and Coral Cove have been released into permanent glory. I purchased all three because I have a makeup hoarding problem… They come in the standard gold Milani packaging with a transparent top. Through the transparent lid you can see that the blushes have been sculpted into the shape of beautiful rose. How cool is that (I’m a sucker for gimmicks).
Sooo this is my October favorites. I am fully aware that we are well into November and that I haven’t posted in over a week, but I have good reason! I was out for a work conference all last week and the hotel charged for internet and I am far too cheap to be paying for internet. So here we are practically Mid November and these are my OCTOBER favorites.
I really like making favorites posts. It makes me feel like I am getting a little bit of me out into the beauty world. I also love reading about other people’s favorites soo just maybe you guys are interested in some of mine! Today I wanted to talk about some things that I am loving this fall.
I’m on a mini vacay in the mountains and it actually feels like fall here. At home most days we still have 80+ degree weather so it has been hard to get in the mood for fall, but atlas I am in the mountains the air is cool and the leaves are changing. I wanted to share with you my outfit of the day. Continue reading
I have never really been a fan of cream blushes. I liked the idea of a cream blush, but they never seem to work for me. Most of the cream blushes I have tried have done one of two things. First they have applied chalky and get patchy after a short amount of time. The second problem I have with cream blushes is that they turn me into a greasy monkey and I don’t even have oily skin. So when I saw the Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm I thought maybe these are the ones. Especially after the Cheek Pop Blushes, which were so wonderful, I had extremely high hopes for these cream blushes.
