Recent Beauty Faves




Recently I've been trolling through my make up bag(s), and found some goodies I haven't used for a while. I've put them back into rotation and I can't believe they were ever forgotten about. Two of these items are newer so they were not forgotten, but I haven't put them down since I bought them so I'd thought I'd include them in my favorites.


Victoria Secret All Over Shimmer in Gold Star 
I can't find it on their site, but I was just in their store over the weekend and still saw it there. For Halloween I wanted really bronzed and shimmery cheeks so I layered this over my bronzer. It's such a soft gold and looks gorgeous layered over anything. I've also layered it over my blush this past week. I use it a lot to highlight my brow bones and over my shadow. When I was in there store I fell in love with this eyeshadow duo in Undiscover, but they were out of stock. I'll have to go back and pick it up. I'll use it on my eyes and cheeks both. Let's be honest, I'm a sucker for anything shimmery, especially gold and shimmery.

MAC Blush in Easy Manner
This is from their Glamour Daze collection that I bought at their preview. It's now available in store and online. It's a gorgeous peachy pink blush with no shimmer that gives a soft flush. I'm really happy with that purchase, my other blushes are either very shimmery or a much brighter pink. It's nice to add something different in the mix. 

MAC Cream Colour Base in Pearl
I've had this puppy for years and have always used it on and off. You can really use it wherever you want on your face. As a shadow base, highlighter, etc. Lately, I've been putting it on a bit heavier on places to highlight- cheekbones, brow bones, bridge of my nose, and then layering my powder over it. Kind of contouring my face a bit by using it first. I'll also use it on top of my makeup sometimes to, it really is very versatile. 

Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray
Remember I told you folks how I only wash my hair 2x a week? Well I also get up at 430am for work (my schedule is changing and I'll get to sleep in another hour!). This dry shampoo is a dream! I don't know how I went on about my life without it. It really gives a lot of body and good texture, not gross filmy texture.

MAC Tinted Lipglass in Florabundance
Even though I've been sporting bold lip lately, a great nude lip is always my favorite look. Nearly all my glosses are soft nudes and pinks. This one was a favorite of mine for a while, but then I kept buying more glosses and it somehow just got skipped over. I came across it and haven't put it down again. It's just enough color to use on it's own, but it's also great over other lipsticks (like MAC Hue). 

Do you ever resurrect old beauty products? What have you been using lately or have found again?

I LOVE reading about makeup faves/staples - the MAC blush sounds so pretty - as does the VS highlighter - will definitely have to check both of those out.

I love trying new eyeliners but always come back to Clinique's Quickliner in Violet. It's an amazing formula and Violet is great for green eyes.

Kristen!

Love these faves, MAC lipglass has been in my bag for years in different colors. But I have yet to try a highlighter...ever on my face! They are intimidating. I never know where to highlight. I hope you are having a perfect week!
