WEEKLY FAVORITES: IX

This week I have a few new items and some long time favorites. With spring fast approaching, I’ve been leaning towards a more natural look and as a result, the theme is pretty neutral:

Black Pearl & Gold Eye Patches by Petitfeé – If you follow me on Snapchat (s0njablade), then you see me using these all the time! If you’re visiting and staying with me, I’m making you try them because they are so amazing. I will use them on long flights, when I’m hungover, when I don’t get enough sleep, or just when I need a little extra pick me up. Buy these now, and thank me later.

Double Wear Foundation by Estée Lauder – This foundation has a cult following for a reason. It’s buildable, has great coverage and feels so light on the skin. It has serious lasting power and looks so natural! I’m in the shade ”Ivory Beige and know that I will be reaching for this one time and time again. The only caveat, it needs a pump. Luckily the MAC foundation pump fits this bottle, so it’s a quick fix.

Time Revolution Essence by Missha – This is a great dupe for SKII’s famous essence. It helps to hydrate, improve skin elasticity and brighten. I will use this after toner and pat into my skin with my palms.  I love it and the fact that it doesn’t have a scent.

Sun Fluid by Dr Jart+ – This is a skincare sunscreen, so you don’t have to worry about it breaking you out. With an SPF of 30 you can trust that this can provide you with protection for everyday use. It doesn’t have that sickly piña colada smell that most sunscreens have, doesnt ball up under makeup, and is slightly mattifying. I have a sample size but will purchase the full size once I run out.

Mineral Blush in ‘Wild Honey’ by Becca – Like the rest of the world, I love Becca’s highlighters and this blush has a lot of the same qualities. The powder is finely milled, it blends like a dream, is pigmented and so beautiful. This has become my everyday blush. It’s perfect for a quick wash of color to bring some life back into my face.

Sculpting Lipstick in ‘Intense Nude’ by Estée Lauder – I received this as a gift when I purchased the foundation above and it’s quickly found a permanent place in my bag. My natural lip color is a bit maroonish and this is my perfect nude. It’s really pigmented, hydrating and comfortable.

Weekly Favorites: II

I’ve found that ever since I’ve gotten back into journaling, my head is clearer, I’m more in tune and starting to feel like my old self again. Here are a few favorites that I’ve loved and am still loving:

NARS Audacious lipstick in Audrey – this is the perfect berry shade for my skin tone. I love the magnetic cap (so satisfying). Great formula, it’s NARS…

Missha Essence Sun Milk – I love this sun block. It’s light weight, provides serious protection, doesn’t give a white cast,  absorbs quickly and doesn’t have that typical sunblock scent.

The Five Minute Journal– This is great for the journaling novice or the long time lover. Don’t worry if you’re short on time, all you need is 5 minutes in the morning and the evening and you’re that much closer to creating a new habit. I love that this journal is based around gratitude. There are weekly challenges, and inspirational quotes to help motivate. I know this sounds hippie-dippie, but there is something to be said for taking the time to acknowledge the good in our lives.

MycoShield Immune Support – When the temps drop and the germs spread, I need all the help I can get. The peppermint is strong in this, which I don’t mind, but be warned.

Heimish All Clean Balm – This stuff removes makeup like a dream! Massage it on and bye bye waterproof everything. There is, however, one caveat – it contains coconut oil. So my dear acne prone skin, let me save you the heartache – this WILL break you out! I learned this the hard way. As a result, I’m not using it anymore. Which really bums me out. If you’re lucky to not have acne issues, buy this STAT!
