My Favorite’s of 2014

Favorites of 2014

(Starting from top left corner and going clockwise)

These are my most favorite things of 2014!  I use them all regularly and shout from the roof tops there awesomeness.  Shea Moisture Hibiscus and Coconut Body Butter not only smells fruity and great it is a really good moisturizer.  I love it and even use it to make lip balm with.  Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation is my go to everyday foundation.  It’s so light and covers really well as well as having a nice finish.  Revlon Colorburst is like a crayon and has a nice mintyness to it.  They also come in a ton of colors and types.  I love how convenient and easy they are to carry around, they are just awesome.  Wet n’ Wild Eye Collection in Petal Pusher I love this palette!  It’s soft and goes with everything or it can be sultry and dramatic.  I love most of their palettes but  this is one I reach for most often.  I usually just go for a little color while running errands and this has a variety that I really like.  Their shadows also have a great pigment, finish and blend really nicely on the eye. Laura Geller Balance and Brighten  Baked Powder Foundation is my go to highlighter.  As a foundation I don’t like it and as a powder I don’t like it.  But as a highlighter/illuminator I love!  It really makes you look lit up from within.  The next 2; GlamGlow  and Vince Camuto Amore  I just wrote about so I won’t bore you I will just say: love `em!  Rimmel London’s Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara is a great mascara.  It lengthens and volumizes your lashes like crazy! And last but not least is Herbal Essences Sleeker than Butter Shampoo and Conditioner.  This is probably my favorite shampoo and conditioner ever to exist.  It leaves my hair so silky and smooth and I never have frizz anymore.  Well folks, those were my fav things of this year!  What were your favorite things of 2014?  Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment!

New Maybelline Fit Me! Matte + Poreless

20141213-234601.jpg

I popped in to CVS the other day and much to my surprise they had the new Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation and powder.  I haven’t seen it anywhere else yet so I bought it!  I purchased the foundation in 110 Porcelain and the powder in 100 translucent.  I was excited to try this because I have been looking to try another foundation.  I wore it for about 8 hours today and the claim on the packages says 12 hour wear for both.

So this is how I feel about it:

  • Nice, thick consistency
  • Great finish, wasn’t sticky or dry
  • Very broad range of shades
  • Blush stayed on with no fading
  • Minimal touch ups needed (only 1 about 6 hours in)

All in all it was totally worth my $8 and I will most definitely keep wearing it.  Have you tried it yet?  Is there another foundation I should try?  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Favorite Makeup Products (Right Now)

20141209-233009.jpg

I am consistently changing up my beauty routine and always trying new products. I just wanted to share a few of my favorites right now!

I am really loving Maybelline Dream Wonder Foundation right now.  I use 15 Ivory but it’s becoming too dark on my skin I think.  It feels really greasy and oily as you apply it but it sets into a really nice powder finish. You don’t need any powder to set and it glides on really smooth. I use my fingers but you can use a brush/beauty sponge if you’d rather.

e.l.f. Maximum Coverage Oil Free Concealer Porcelain- If you go back a few posts I wrote a blog post about this concealer. I love it! I use it all the time and love how it’s creamy and doesn’t crease. It makes me look more awake and really brightens my under eye area.

I love blush! On that note I am in love with e.l.f. Mellow Mauve. It’s a neutral color which I haven’t ever used before and I can’t stop using it. I apply it as if I were contouring with it and pop a highlighter on top of my cheek bones.  And you can see in that picture I have hit pan! Yay, another excuse to buy makeup!

Lipstick has never really been my thing, I was always a lip gloss gal. But, Revlon’s Super Lustrous Matte Lipstick changed all that. I bought Pink Pout from CVS a couple of weeks ago and I am so glad I did. I love how it applies and it’s a perfect neutral pink for my skin tone. I usually apply Revlon Colorburst lip gloss in Pink Ice over the top. That gloss is my all time favorite gloss and if they ever discontinue it I think it will be the end of me. It’s almost a perfect match to this M.A.C. Lipglass I had over ten years ago that was limited edition. Don’t you just hate limited edition or discontinued items? I wish they were there forever! Or in a warehouse for people like me who don’t like change and wear the same shade lip gloss forever. Anyways, those are my fav things right now, that I can’t go out of the house without. I keep changing up my mascara and eye shadows, nothing really consistent enough for me to write about. As always, hope you enjoyed and comments are welcome and appreciated!
