Favorites of the Week

Welcome to the first installment of My Favorites of the Week.  I have been trying a lot of new products lately, some hits some misses and instead of reviewing every single last one I thought I would tell you what I have been loving each week!  I will do reviews of products that I think are really great or not so really great, just thought this would be fun, especially since I change up my beauty routine often.  To start things off:

1. Wet n Wild Vicious Varnish Highshine Lip Stain in Global Fierceness– This product is from the Fergie line and I picked it up at Walgreens on clearance for $1.50 and thought I would give it a try.  I don’t really own any red shades so I thought this would be fun to try, especially for Christmas.  This color is a deep, cranberry color which I really like because it’s not too red, it’s more of a deeper wine color.  I had no idea this was a lip stain, I really didn’t read the label until after I bought it.  When I see clearance it’s as if everything else is blocked out, I just know I need it because it’s super cheap (consumerism at its finest).  It definitely stained my lips, and they didn’t really feel tacky at all after about 5 minutes, but they still looked glossy.  But beware, if you do not reapply, your lips will be stained bright pink for a little while after.  They had a bunch of colors, so I am sure there is something for everyone!

2. Concealer– This is one I am excited about because I am  mixing 2 different products!  I bought this Hard Candy Lite Bright Whipped Brightening Concealer in Fair (504) a few weeks ago and I REALLY didn’t like it.  When I applied it went on thick and hard to blend, like paint as well as settling in my little lines and pores on my cheeks.   I was so bummed because it cost $8 at Walmart and I needed to now justify my purchase.  That’s when I had the bright idea to mix it with my e.l.f. Maximum Coverage Concealer in Porcelain!  The e.l.f. concealer is a little yellow so this brightened and thickened it up!  Now, I get a full coverage concealer that also highlight and blends really well.

3. Revlon Photo Ready BB Cream in Light Pale– I have tried a couple of BB Creams in the past and I really didn’t understand what all the fuss was about, I am usually a full coverage foundation kind of girl or no makeup at all.  I had coupons and CVS had a sale so I bought it!  I have been really impressed with this!  It says on the bottle skin perfector but I didn’t think much of it until I noticed it totally covers up the pores on my nose.  As in gone, no more, adios amigo.  It also really evens out my skin tone and gives a nice matte finish.  I top with concealer, powder and blush but would be just as comfortable by itself while I am out running my errands.

Those were my favorites this week!  Check back every Monday if you want to see what I am loving!  Thanks for reading, comments are welcome and appreciated!
