Current Favorites: July + August 2017

Hi ladies and gents! I’ve been super lacking on my blog posts recently. Juggling school and work has been tough, but I’m re-committing myself to weekly posts. I wanted to share my recent favorites because they are all products I’ve never mentioned here before. Let’s get into it!


BareMinerals Skinlongevity Eye Gel Cream

I have pretty dry under eyes, but I don’t see a point in buying a different eye cream for day and night. Because most are too heavy for day time. This is perfect for both! Light weight, yet super moisturizing!


Maybelline FitMe Blushes

Maybelline is probably my favorite drugstore brand. These blushes are a bomb edition to the Fit Me line. They are pigmented but not too pigmented so you can build them up or only wear a little flush of color. Plus, they’re only $5.99!


Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Stick

I’ve been searching for my perfect primer for years. I have combination skin, so I really need something that doesn’t make me oily. A lot of times primers marketed for oily skin are too heavy and have the reverse effect. I’m not sure if this is my holy grail yet, but I do really like it! Super light-weight, yet still smoothing. It’s also super easy to apply.


Benefit Gimme Brow Shade 3

I used this brow gel several years ago when it first came out. I just thought it was ok at that time. But I recently picked it up again and totally love it! I’m not sure if they changed the formula when they changed the packaging but it’s less chunky – if that makes sense. Less product comes out on the brush so I find it easier to apply. Since this thickens your brows, I often use it on it’s own.


Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

While this mascara is pretty pricey, $25 to be exact – it’s amazing! I had saved up a bunch of rewards points at Ulta and used them towards this purchase. It has amazing volume and length while still separating. 100% will re-purchase even though it’s expensive AF.


SugarFix by BaubleBar for Target

I have been super interested in Baublebar for a long time. I love tassel earrings and statement jewelry. However, I was not a fan of the price tag! I recently noticed they came out with an affordable line for my favorite store … Target! They range from $9.99-$29.99. I can’t wait to buy more!


What are your current favorites? Let me know!
