“Go home and work on your blog or something and forget about this shit.”
That’s what he said.
It was that kind of day.
Anyway, this is my 300th post on Word Press, and I have lots of stuff to share with you.
I’m not all about that organizational life, but I thought I might organize this post a little differently and see how it goes. What do you think? Is that cool with you guys?
Insert nodding heads here.
The plan: To break down the Stuff I’m Loving by categories, instead of just a bunch of random thoughts.
Insert nodding heads here.
Let’s do this.
I went a little ham during Ulta’s Black Friday sale annnnd I may or may not have purchased a shit ton of lips stuff that I am absolutely loving. In that little pile of glossy shiney nude colored bliss is a combo that I have been wearing non stop.
Both of these products are pretty awesome stag, but together they are bad ass. Engagement is smooth and surprisingly shiny for a matte crayon. I don’t find the formula drying at all and it wears well. Super Star has the typical Moxie kinda sorta maybe minty but in a vanilla- ish way scent. The formula is hydrating and not sticky at all. It has a good bit of shimmery gold and rose gold metallic-ness that makes my lips look smooth and plump.
Speaking of Bare Minerals, I’ve also been loving everything (or everything that I’ve tried so far) in the Your Kiss is on My Lips mini kit thingie.
Other Bare Minerals loves are the Marvelous Moxie Iridescent Top Coat Glosses. I have Enchantress and Illusionist.
I read some shade in the reviews of these products. I really like them, the formula is nice, the only thing I don’t like is the packaging. It leaks. I’m foreseeing many ruined purses and makeup bags. Mine will live upright, somewhere stationary. Thankyouverymuch.
One of the many things I look forward to around Christmas time in my little makeup world are train case sets, from Ulta particularly. I purchased this one which is called the Brilliantly Beautiful Color Essentials Collection.
Ulta Nude Matte Eye Shadow Primer is totally bad assed.
It’s an I will probably never use another kind of eye primer kind of good. The consistency is a little thicker than I’m used to, it’s opaque and doesn’t crease. Loving that. I’m also loving the eye shadow palette that came in the collection.
I was a little disappointed to see that the mirror had came unglued. Eeeeh. That’s okay, lots of my palettes don’t have mirrors in them and I get along okay, no biggie right? Right, so I thought let me get my fingers in this palette and see how it looks.
Insert disappointing sigh here.
I love the gel bounce shadows, they are all richly pigmented and wear exceptionally well.
For my eye look today and yesterday- I’ve been using Starburst from the train case above along with Equinox for a brow bone highlight and then I pat Glory all over my lid. I really love the way these shadows work together. The rest of the palette is meh at best, with the exception of Secret- It’s pretty awesome. The others swatch okay, however, the pigment doesn’t really translate to the eye.
Perfume: I’ve really been loving Burberry Brit Sheer. It’s sweet, yet sort of woody, light and the fragrance lingers for hours. It has top notes of sweet lychee, yuzu, pineapple leaves and mandarin.
Really been loving that.
What have you guys been loving?
Sunshine shenanigans. 🌞
Happy Monday. ❤️
