January Favorites

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Mac Lip Pencil in Subculture, $17.50

This lip pencil is the best pink nude EVER! It is like your lips but better. You can use this under any lipsticks or on it’s own with a gloss. I can’t tell you how much I love this lip pencil. I will always have this in my collection. In the above photo I have it on by itself.

Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette in Scandalust, $49.00

I bought this eye palette in late 2017 and have been using it on and off since. However, this month I used it almost everyday. It is so versatile and provides so many looks for whatever you are feeling. The formula is velvety smooth and the color payoff is bomb. I like taking that cranberry color on the left in my outer corners for a subtle pop of color.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Luminous Bronze Light, $50.00

Hourglass has these buttery soft powders called Ambient powders and they are incredible. This formula is used throughout their face powders, highlighters and bronzers. This one is specifically a bronzer and looks great all over the skin for a lit from within glow. You will never look orange or muddy. This bronzer has been saving my pale skin this month.

L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara, $9.99

I love drugstore mascaras and testing new ones all the time. L’Oreal usually has some of best formulas on the mass market. This one really defines each lash and provides beautiful length. The plastic comb really helps define your lower lashes as well. However, it is stubborn to remove so I would recommend a waterproof makeup remover.

Make Up For Ever Sculpting Blush in Satin Pink Peach, $26.00

This peach blush looks great on the apples of your cheeks but also mixed in with your bronzer around your face. This blush is on the warmer side I’ve been pairing it with some of those nude tones in the Marc Jacobs palette.

Patagonia perfume in Darwin, 15ml-perfume oil, $132.00

I purchased this perfume with a dear friend in NYC this past June. Founded in 2010, Julian Bendel created Fueguia using only natural ingredients that have uniquely never been used in perfumery. Because of the uniqueness and characteristics of the ingredients, this does create a challenge with climate, quality and prices of the botanical spices. Fueguia produces only limited quantities of each perfume. A nice added touch to the packaging shows the year it was created.

The posh perfume is wrapped so decadently and smells of cedar, vetiver, and grapefruit. Great for colder months. *Can definitely be worn by both a man or women.
