Favorite Products Right Now

I don't do the monthly favorites thing very well because...I'm not punctual enough. So, thought I'd just talk about a few products I'm loving right this minute. Here we go!

We have:

-Chanel Glossimer in Blizzard-
-Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Mosaic Blush in Afterglow (d/c'd now I think)-
-Make Up Forever Sens'eyes Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser-
-Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray-
-Milani HD Advanced Concealor in shade #2-
-Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil in Black-

Some swatches of the liner, concealor, and glossimer:


And, a little blurb on each product:

Chanel Glossimer in Blizzard: I have recently rekindled my love for this lipgloss. It completely holds the Holy Grail title for me because I've gone through about 4 tubes and used it for at least 8 years...each tube lasts forever! It is the perfect mauvey-pink with a hint of brown, and just really makes my lips stand out but not be the star of the show. It's such a gorgeous shade and makes me look polished but not overdone at all. I wore it on my wedding day, and I wear it to the grocery store. Perfect for every occasion. FIVE STARS! 

Here's a pic (very grainy hence why it's so small) of me wearing it, just so you can get a very slight idea of how it looks on :)

Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Mosaic Blush in Afterglow: A great natural blush. It comes off as a dusty pink with a hint of brown. It's a no brainer to apply and that's why I like it. The formula is very finely milled and not insanely pigmented so you can just swipe it on and go. Love it!

Make Up Forever Sens'eyes Eye Makeup Remover: This is one of the few eye makeup removers I actually liked enough to buy the full size after getting a sample. I am not a fan of oil based removers so I love this one because it's more of a gel/lotion consistency, and doesn't leave a greasy film at all. Strong enough to take off my MAC Liquidlast liner with minimal rubbing. Sadly, it's a way more expensive version of my old fave (and long discontinued) Nivea Visage remover that came in a blue tube.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray: I looove this stuff. It is made by a company called Skindinavia, which I have purchased their makeup setting spray from before. This is the exact same product in UD packaging. I'm glad UD makes it as well now (through Skindinavia) because it's more accessible than Skindinavia, which I had to buy online. Highly highly recommend for long lasting makeup! Especially if you have oily skin, this will greatly reduce the makeup sliding off your face, trust me. A must have!

Milani HD Advanced Concealor: From all of the undereye concealors I have tried so far, this one is my favorite. It is yet another YSL Touche Eclat dupe, but is a fraction of the price and works amazingly. It is a wonderful peach shade that lightens and brightens the undereye. The texture is fabulous: creamy yet thin, so it sinks into the skin effortlessly and lasts all day. Does not cake or settle into fine lines. You need to try this, especially since it's only 7 bucks!

Milani Liquif'eye Eyeliner Pencil in Black: This is the best liner! It is what I wanted UD 24/7 in Zero to be. It's super creamy, easy to apply, UBER pigmented, and stays on my waterline longer than any pencil liner I've tried! It is one that you have to sharpen often though because of its creaminess.

Well, there you have it! 

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

What are your faves right now?

  1. Great post! I love the VS mosaic blushes, I have one also and I love it! Too bad it's discontinued :/ I'll need a new eye make-up remover soon as I'm nearly done with my cheap Target one lol I am not too crazy about cream removers, but I may give this MUFE one a try, thanks! Also I keep hearing really good things about Milani liners and that they don't come off easily! I MUST get that soon :)
