Week in Review | April 15th through April 21st

Happy Saturday! I always enjoy seeing what makes up the week’s top ten highest-reviewed products, so I hope you find it somewhat interesting as well! 🙂  I didn’t get to use much that wasn’t for testing this week, but more recently, I have been enjoying Tom Ford’s Nude Dipp quite a bit. I took that quad along with Chanel’s Empreint du Desert and put them in my vanity as go-tos (when the mood strikes, when I need something foolproof for a big group of blush/lip photos). I’m pretty sure I found a way to wear MAC Fairly Precious and Estee Lauder Naked Truth into at least one look this week, too.

  • Most loved product of the week:  Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit is really fun to layer and play (review soon!)
  • Most used product of the week: Estee Lauder Naked Truth probably! I think I got to wear it twice, haha.
  • Any new beauty discoveries?:  The new MAC Extra Dimension Blushes and Anastasia Aurora Glow Kit!

Week in Review | March 25th through March 31st

Happy Saturday! I always enjoy seeing what makes up the week’s top ten highest-reviewed products, so I hope you find it somewhat interesting as well! 🙂 From the list, I really loved the shimmer in OCC’s Bon Bon, while the very ruby slippers-esque coloring of Estee Lauder’s Killer Kiss is the exact type of red I gravitate toward.

Every April Fool’s Day, I think about playing a joke, and I always toy with the idea of “quitting,” but I can’t seem to say goodbye, even as a joke. I just can’t find the words!  Hopefully, you don’t get too inundated with jokes today! 🙂

  • My skin tone/coloring:  Light-medium, warmer undertones
  • Most loved product of the week:  I had the chance to wear Tom Ford’s Nude Dip this week and remembered just how lovely it was, so definitely that!
  • Most used product of the week: Since a lot of my color products vary from testing, I’d say staples like Anastasia Dip Brow and Tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea Foundation.
  • Any new beauty discoveries?:  I started using Tatcha’s Soothing Triple Recovery Cream, and I like it a lot so far but continue to struggle with the price.
