Forget the whole monthly favorites idea, I'm so crappy at keeping up with it consistently. So instead I wanted to talk about what I love right now, thus Currently Loving ♥ (yes, it's back!)
You might see some repeat favorites here, but I don't just move on from products I love easily.
L'Occitane Almond Milk Hand Cream: My favorite hand cream brand bar none. I just recently discovered their Almond Milk rendition. Mmmm comforting and rich smelling with lovely light green packaging reminding me of delicious Laduree signature boxes.
Origins Clear Improvement Mask: I KEEP trying Origins and I kept getting a row of duds but every time I'm just about to turn my back on the brand I get slammed with a home run. This brand is clutch all right. I've been loving this charcoal mask. I apply it twice a week and really see a minimization of my pores not only instantly but over the next coming days I see them looking smaller - I like minimization effect!
Youngblood cream blush in Rose Quartz: A niche brand I believe. I don't hear much about them and believe Bendels is the only physical store I can think of that sells this brand, but it was worth the trek uptown!
I was convinced I was going to buy the shade "Tropical Glow" the peachy pink with gold shimmer, but the SA and I both agreed this petal pink with silver shimmer was better suited for myself. Who knew?
I don't wear pink or silver but the shimmer on the face is not as obvious unless you are in the light. Then you are glowing!
The real reason why this is a current star product for me is because of the longevity. Most cream blushes don't last as long as powder but this stays on me for well over 9 hours. I even saw it clearly at the 12 hour mark. In the make up bag it stays!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze: Repeat favorite. I have been addicted to applying this over every single blush I wear each day. It's adds a great sheen, warmth, and lasts long when layered over a blush.
It's a bit fragile, mine already broke out of it's pan but I just try to handle with care :)
RMS Living Luminizer: OK it seems many people are curious to know how I feel about the RMS products I purchased recently. I like the blush and luminzer I purchased but noticed their lack of longevity. While they made my skin look fresh and effortless when applied the staying power was just not there - believe the brand owner is aware of this and mentions make up should not be on the face for very long so the products are not meant for 12 hour shifts.
Fair enough, I have been quite happy with my little lumizer. It doesn't last all day but a little portable pot of glow with a few taps of the fingers makes me happy. It is quite subtle but still very pretty. Very daytime friendly.
Chanel Les Beiges No. 30: Another repeat favorite. This bronzer powder hybrid really has been getting to work this summer. Adding a touch of color and blending into the skin with such a fine powder texture it's seamless on the skin and effortless (again).
Worth the hype.
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy: My current go to MLBB shade.
Comfortable on the lips, a little shiny, and a bit of pretty color.
Benefit's They're Real Mascara: Quite hyped about as well, but I get it. Initially I was not a fan. The wand is quite pokey but after a bit of training myself to slow down and apply this slowly, the length and volume achieved is nothing short of just damn nice.
Two layers for special nights and "ka pow!" the lashes are!
Single coat for daytime revealing feminine super enhancing lashes.
Though this does smudge on me, I can see the reason for the hype.
Also, I think this does get better with age.
And that's it! My current make up bag of favorites and must haves!
Till next time!
