Current Makeup Faves

If you have been reading here for awhile, then you know
that I'm a makeup junkie. I will try anything once! 
Today, I'm sharing my current makeup faves.

What sold me on this was that it has
pro-retinol in it which is great for those fine 
lines around the eye area. I have been using this
as a primer under my eyes and really like it. I helps
brighten and keep my concealer in place. 

Kiehl's Youth Dose Eye Treatment

Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser
I got this as a sample in my Play! by Sephora box and
 really like how creamy it was. It takes all my 
makeup off and leaves my skin 
feeling nice and soft. Plus, it smells really good.

Mario Badescu Vitamin C Serum
I have been hearing so much about how Vitamin
C is good for you skin, I just had to get some for myself to try.
This stuff is legit. I use it every other night and really
feel that my skin is clear and brighter. Be warned, it can be
drying, so only use a little bit.

Ole Henriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme
I picked this up on a whim and I'm so glad I did.
I use it as my night time eye cream. When I wake up,
the eye area is definitely brighter. Plus, this smells
really good. It should be noted that this eye cream
is not very hydrating, some nights I put this over
my La Mer cream. I pretty much use La Mer
all over my face and body. For me, it works the
best. Although, I do hate the price of it. But it 
works so well for me, it's worth it.

Rodin Luxury Face Oil 
This stuff is as Lux as one can get. But man, 
it's Ah-Mazing. I got a free sample of it
and loved it so much I had to buy it. It makes
me feel so luxurious. During the day, I use a little  of it
as a highlighter.  I put it on at night and 
wake up to a face as smooth as a baby's bottom.
Love Love this stuff.

This is my go to lip liner. It's a rosy-nude color
that goes with everything. I wear it with my pink lipsticks and
 my nude lipsticks.  It's such a pretty color.
 If you like a rosy-nude lip, this is the lip liner
for you. 

Marc Jacobs Poutliner in Primrose.

If you are fair with blueish under eye circles,
this is the best corrector for you!  I have tired almost every 
corrector on the market and this one works the best for me. 
 In fact sometimes, I only need to put this on and my
horrible dark circles are gone.
I love this stuff so much!! 

I will be honest, I have never been a fan of stick foundations.
So, when my friend recommended this, I was very skeptical.
However, much to my surprise, I love love this foundation.
 It is completely seamless. Every time I wear it,
 people comment on how good my skin looks.
It's this foundation. It's pricey but the glow it gives, 
makes it worth it.

Tom Ford

This is hands down one of the best
highlighters. I love how it goes on and stays on.
It goes on smoothly and blends so nicely.
I use in the color Quartz and love it.
And it only costs $18.00!! Can't beat that.

I have a love/hate relationship with powder. Most
loose powders don't work for me as they leave me
a cakey mess. However, this one leaves me glowing
without that heavy or cakey feel.  It's great for my sometimes dry skin.
I just use a little on my t-zone and I'm set of the day. 

Armani Loose Highlighting Powder

Those are my current makeup faves. I do
realize I spend alot on makeup and skin care
but my belief is, you only have one face so 
it's best to take care of it, the best you can. Plus,
I feel like my face is a worthy investment. I cut 
corners in other places to indulge in my makeup
habits. For instance, I hardly ever buy lunch.
I bring it from home almost every day.
That alone saves me a ton of money. I couldn't get over
how much I saved a week by bringing in my own lunch.
So that savings, goes to my makeup!! It's 
all about checks and balances, right??

Do you have any new makeup
faves to share?? Let me know, I love
 hearing from you!!


Pin It!


  1. my HG concealer is by Armani; it's the best and never leaves my skin dry or cakey.

  2. I might give the Ole Henriksen a try. Their products are always good!

  3. I need to check out that face wash, it sounds fabulous! I have been using the Kiels avocado eye cream, but I like that one has something for fine lines. Maybe I will get that next time.

  4. You don't need to justify buying makeup - it's whatever makes you happy! I've never tried a stick foundation, but I'm curious. And Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser sounds interesting; I like that it takes off all your makeup.


  5. Bookmarked x10. I love your makeup reviews - can't wait to try pretty much all of these!

  6. The Kiehl's Youth Dose sounds a lot like the First Aid Beauty Triple Remedy which I have but it's the wrong shade and doesn't blend well. Have you tried that one? Does the Kiehl's come in different shades and/or blend easily?

  7. I need to be better about using vitamin c, so I will look into this one. Thank you for all the recommendations and making my wallet lighter. Ha. But really, thank you.

  8. EEEk, Always LOVE your make-up posts and I may just get into rouble because I want all of these!! I've only ever tried the Vit C serum. have a great evening sweet pea!

  9. I haven't tried any of these beauty products but I'm intrigued by the MJ lip liner as it sounds so versatile. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  10. I need to give these a try! I'm always looking for new products


  11. Yess that undereye brightening corrector is so nice! I love that it's brightening without being overboard.

  12. This sample answer addresses the company’s brand and history, but also demonstrates that the candidate took the time to do some additional research through his network (read on for some tips on how to research companies before you interview). The answer goes on to emphasize the candidate’s interest in working hard and developing on the job.
