makeup favs

Today I'm going to share a few beauty product i've been loving recently. See, I LOVE makeup. It's so fun to try new things, but makeup is expensive! So when I find something I truly love I stick with it. Here's what I've purchased recently and am using and loving. 
L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Eyeliner in Carbon Black
I'm not usually into drug store makeup but this stuff is the darkest true black liquid eyeliner that I've used (my previous liquid liner-Urban Decay's liquid black liner is a close second). It has a spongy felt tip applicator that makes thick and thin lines and cat eyes (my fav) easy peasy to apply.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
Love this stuff. It lasts FOR-EV-ER, is cheap, and gives you a really clean and deep cleansing feel when you use it. Plus is smells minty and is tingly when you put it on.

The next products may cost you a small fortune but some of them are worth shelling out the cash for, promise. 

Too Faced Primed and Poreless
I've never really used a primer under my foundation but I heard good things about this and decided to give it a try. The jury is still out on it though. I think I need to use it for a few more weeks before I can really give it a stamp of approval. But what I've seen so far while using it I like.

Makeup Forever Matte Velvet +
I love this foundation. Natural looking, matte, and gives great coverage. 'Nuff said. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed
It claims to be long wearing, and it is. The color I purchased, "Exposed", is natural looking the perfect neutral cheek color. 

NARS Trio (Laguna/Orgasm/Albatross)
This is the perfect trio of NARS' most popular cheek products. The Laguna bronzer, Orgasm Blush, and Albatross highlighter. They are uber flattering on all skin tones. It's a hefty price tag for the compact, but you really can't live without them. 
China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Passion
This is the nail polish that's been my go-to this holiday season. A perfect gold tone, not to yellow, no sparkles, resistant to chipping, overall just a really flattering metallic gold. I get compliments on it when ever my nails are painted with it (which has been constant the last month or so).
See, isn't it pretty?

Well I hope that you guys try out some of these products I've been loving lately. Let me know if you do. I'd love to know if you love them as much as I do. 


  1. Love your list, I should do a list. I thought when i started my blog I'd have a section that said :Product Junkie, and to blog about it... but then it just didn't happen, I guess I was "better" at other things in blogging...but I am a product junkie at heart, and have tried so so many...i am addicted! Where can I buy the China Glaze? Sephora? I've heard that Nars Orgasim blush is the bomb!!
    Thanks for this great list!

  2. I actually got the China Glaze color at Ulta, but you can prob get it at Sephora too! And you shoud def check out that NARS blush!

  3. Ok I will! Thanks, I looked for the china glaze at Sephora, but they didn't carry it, i'll go get it at Ulta! I'm a product freak too!!!!

  4. Love those nails and good tips on the products!
