  1. I finally found a BB Cream I like (Dr Jart+ Water Fuse) and it actually lasts the longest without oiliness on my skin OF ANYTHING I have ever tried...EVER. <3 that for spring and summer. Also, thanks to you the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors- I have worn Pearl every day apart from the 1 day that I wore Opal since it arrived. Another staple is Becca's Lip and Cheek Cream in Tuberose and bronzer. I have been favoring Too Faced Chocolate Soleil and Soleil Tam de Chanel.

  4. I like how it sounds like your makeup products are literally duking it out and fighting each other for a spot on your vanity for the season XD I'm trying to use different eyeshadows in my collection because I have too darn many and I always use the same 10 shadows.... I'm hoping I can finally get some use out of the Naked palette which I was lemming for for over a year and since I got it in December-ish I've only reached for it two or three times :X

  6. Love your list (and added some of your faves to my wish list :)) I've been reaching for my Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer pretty much everyday lately, bright colored blushes, lots of cream eyeshadows especially MAC paint pots (i'm obsessed!) and a Shiseido one. I am also loving Soleil Tan de Chanel for bronzer. Oh and Revlon lip butters have been the only lip products I use along with my Clarins natural lip perfector #2 :)

  7. Awesome list! I am excited to hear what you have to say about the NARS tinted moisturizer as I have tried Macs and my current is Laura Mercier. I am looking for a bit more coverage though so I can't wait to hear your review!

  8. Fantastic staples I see there! For Spring, I tend to add in more illuminating products... Such as Illamasqua Satin Primer, tinted moisturisers, and nice bright blushes. Bronzers are a must-do.... and I've been hauling bronzers right left center. I need to stop. Guerlain bronzers are amongst the best, especially the terracotta lights.

  9. You get No7 in the states?

    My winter to spring transition products are Nars Ramatuelle instead of Paramaribo and Indianwood Paint Pot with the darker Paris shade smudged in the outer corner and Nars Luster blush. They feel lighter than the colours I was wearing in winter.

  16. my base makeup routine has remained the same for the last year - I always switch around with the base makeup and I always get bored with the kind of eye makeup I go at work... I love playing around blush and lip combos though!

  17. Thank you, Luster is a colour I would never have tried myself but for a Nars makeup artist and I love it!

  18. I actually use that contour brush for my blush. It's the first brush I ever "loved", so much so that it took me a while to learn natural hair brushes are better for powder blushes because they kick up less excess. However, I found my natural hair MAC 109 dupe to be a little rough. I've gone back to the RT and again fallen for its softness and application perfection. Do you know of a soft natural hair version of the RT brush? Or, would you suggest I stop the search and accept that the RT one is the best? :)

  19. ps I have both the Starter (Eye) Kit and the Core Collection Kit. The Core Collection blows the eye brushes out of the water, in my opinion. The buffing brush and contour brush are fantastic! Of course, I'd buy a 2nd contour brush if RT ever decided to sell it individually. Which is your favourite brush?

  20. i finally got some tan to add Terracota by Guerlain to my daily makeup list :) and i'm happy... later, with more tan, i hope to start using the blushes which in my mind go better with tan :) can't wait :)

  21. Is it bad that I think the Naked Palette is very easily dupe-able but I still kind of want Naked2? :( I have problems.... lol.
