My short list of current favorites
YSL Glossy Stain in #11 Rouge Gouache
My go to lip shade for the weekends. A little concealer, mascara, and this. "All done!"
Think MAC's Girl About Town with a touch less fuscia (more pink) in a glossy stain formula. Just as bright and pigmented but with a bit more hydration. I blot this down a bit to tone down the high shine but keep all the color. Lasts for hours on me, and fades into a fuscia berry stain as the day goes on.
I'm FINALLY eating Vitamins everyday and it's so easy when they are in gummy form! No more chalky dinosaur sized pills. I eat the Vitafusion Women's Gummy Vitamins and they tastes pretty good! So good I want to eat more than the recommended two a day. I eat them at night after dinner like a dessert and works like a charm. Add gummy vitamins to your daily routine for an easy step towards better health.
Laura Mercier Steller Eye shadow
Detailed review can he found here, but a barely there non fuss sheen color. I'm all for those!
Jo Malone's Orange Blossom Cologne
Not new to my collection but after all the wintery musky and powdery scents, this one is making me ache for spring to arrive!
MAC's Moleskine Eyeshadow (LE)
I snagged this at my CCO, and I loove it. I personally love this more than MAC's Wedge to which it is often compared to. This one is a beautiful soft milky chocolate brown with a hint of pink. I don't own a brown like this, and would highly suggest this shade the next time it is re promoted.
YSL Summer Bronzer (LE)
I won't go into details with this one because when I purchased it, it was on the tail end of being off the shelves. After becoming addicted to Guerlain's Mosaic bronzer, I always now seem to keep a bronzer with peachy tones for my all over face color powder.
A bit more color concentrated on the cheeks, and sheerer applications on the contours of your face for an all around beautiful shade that helps warm up the skin.
NYX San Paulo Matte Lip Cream
I honestly think if you want to wear a bold color, but are scared of the incredibly loud effect, go matte.
For some reason matte lips tone down the drama effect, and the NYX versions with lip balm before hand have great color pay off for a fantastic price!
From my Everyday Routine!
Rimmel's Santa Rose
Review coming soon! Very sheer red peach brown shade that is a great drugstore find, especially when snagged on sale. Mini shimmers found in the shade bring the cheeks to life. I love it especially with a specific brush which will be revealed soon!
MAC's Redhead MSF (LE)
While all the new highlighters on the market make me run to the counters for the light infused swatches I have been sticking to this MSF for everyday. I dug into my stash and have been using this as my daily highlight. I mostly use the champagne side for everyday which has quite a dent in it now, but swirl all the shades together sometimes for a peachy almost verging on coppery cheek shimmer.
Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Rose
My only Laura Mercier gloss, ahem "glacé" but this one is amazing for the colder season. A face brightening sheer red with a tiny amount of shimmer. Not too sticky, and my go to for after work to just pick up the tired face. For daytime if this is too loud I pair this with a lighter pink gloss on top and it looks great.
And that's it!
I'm eagerly awaiting spring and ready to use some brighter everyday shades, but for now these are my current loves.
Any new great product recommendations for next season?
