My favorite, new-to-me product this week was Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect lipstick! I got the set of mini KISSING lipsticks from her website when I ordered the new Pillow Talk lipstick, and I’ve fallen in love with the color and formula of Bitch Perfect. It magically makes my lips look great, even when they need to be exfoliated, and is a great, everyday nude. I get why it’s so hyped!

Thank you for the giveaway opportunity ? My favorite product this week was my Real Techniques sponge which I subbed in for my Beauty Blender. Not looking back and love the cost savings. ?

Definitely wanna try the Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin perfector – coz of how unique it looks and the packaging itself!! Would love to do a soft smokey look with a nude lipstick and let this be the highlight of the look – pun intended!

I have been using cream shadow sticks recently because they’re so much faster for me to use in the morning. I’ve used Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks in Rose Gold and Sand Glow most days, but the Maybelline Color Tattoo crayon in Bronzed Truffle is an easy one-shadow look. I also love the Wet-n-Wild Idol Eyes shadow pencil in Pixie as an inner corner highlight.

My favorite this week is the Sugarpill Feline Fancy collection. I am loving the vampy lip that comes in the kit and although it is a little late in the season, (I am so ready for spring here in Montana) I am taking advantage of the remaining winter to wear a vampy lip.

My faves this week have got to be some of the new Colourpop pressed eyeshadows: Come And Get It, Stay Golden and Paper Tiger! Also love and just bought Nyx Lavender Steele Duochromatic. ?
May cave and get Betty Boop lipstick, but do wish MAC would have given it some BB art packaging beyond its box.

My favorite product this week was the Becca Prismatic Amethyst – it’s not as intense a glow as other Becca highlighters yet it is subtle enough that it captures light beautifully.

My favorite product this week was the Benefit Dandelion blush/brightener! This was my first time trying it out, and I am a fan! I only wear it on my cheeks or else I will look too pink, but it adds a nice natural flush.

I’ve already bought the Becca Prismatic Amethyst. I want to try it as a lipstick topper… and then on my Brow bone, and traditionally, of course. I’ve had the flu, though, and my face is all puffed up! Frantically trying to get well! ?

My favorite product this week has been the Becca Amethyst highlighter! I don’t have any shades like it, plus amethyst is my birthstone! The texture is really nice too.

This week the Lorac I Love Brunch palette really caught my eye. I think it would look really cute witg the Pastel Goth palette, which I already have.

I went to Ulta today to see the newest Hula Bronzer Light and it is not what I had hoped. It is very yellow looking on my skin and makes me just look dirty. I don’t have a Mac number to even compare myself to because my skin is so white and cool. The only foundation that works for me is Lancome 90. Overall the bronzer looked weird on my skin and the people working at the Denton Ulta have no idea why hygiene is.

Prismatic Amethyst from Becca! I dont need another Highlighter (Im set for for like 90 years) but the packaging is too pretty! I purchased it as soon as it became available. =)

My favorite product from this week is the Becca Prismatic Amethyst highlighter! I’d wear it with Chanel perfection lumiere in 12 beige rose, chanel double perfection lumiere powder, chanel concealer, laura mercier translucent powder, shadows from my TheBalm Meet Matt(e) Trimony palette, a Maybelline master precise liquid eyeliner wing, l’oreal telescopic mascara, and Maybelline the creamy mattes in divine wine.

I like the NYX Lavender Steele. I’m hoping to use the NYX duochromatic highlighters to serves as dupes for the Anastasia moonglow pallette, at a much more affordable price. 🙂

I just bought Lavender Steel and Prismatic Amethyst comes tomorrow! I’d use both of them for an extra fairy princess-y look. With a black lip and minimal eye makeup, so a Dark Fae kinda thing!

I just bought Lavender Steel and I really like it, even though I don’t wear highlighters too often. Considering Snow Rose as well!

Favorite products of the week are CP Come and Get It alllll over the lid, and Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed.

I got BH cosmetics foiled eyeshadows and Colourpop Might Be highlighter which is a dupe for Estée Lauder Modern Mercury. Love them❤️Thanks for the reviews!

My favorite product from this week’s posts was the Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin perfector. I think it would be lovely as a highlight on my cool-toned fair skin. Like an almost natural but a little bit otherworldly kind of glow.

I’d wear the Colourpop Goody Two Shoes eyeshadow as a liner, but I’ve been a fan of easy, smudged out eyeshadow looks lately!

I think the Becca Amethyst Highlighter would be great as an eyeshadow or as a shadow topper, but I would love to use it as a highlight too or maybe even over lipstick!

My favorites this week are old but good! I I got new eyeshadows – MUG singles in Secret Garden, Bitten, and Dirty Martini & a MUFE single in ME512.

My favorite product this week is the Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer. It covers what I want it to cover and somehow is light. It also stays where I want it to (I do set with powder). I can use it under the eye AND on my face. So far, it works better than any concealer I’ve tried thus far. Love, love, love!

I seriously love Becca Prismatic Amethyst; it is everything I hoped UD Aura (which I have) and Becca Rose Quartz (which I don’t have, but the pink shift seems similar). I really wish Becca had made a more truly lavender highlight though.

I bought Colourpop come and get it. It is lovely. It adds a pop especially for those of us that have to wear glasses. BTW thank you for the chance to win the giftcard. Very kind of you

Nuxe Rêve de Miel Lip Moisturizing Stick! It’s one of my favorite lip balms. I’ve had a cold for the past few days, so it’s really the only thing I’ve been using. Thank you so much for the giveaway! 🙂

I really want to try the amethyst Becca highlighter. I’m really curious to see what it would look like as a fact highlight on my cheekbones, as I have a darker skin tone!

I never win anything in my life but doesn’t hurt to try lol. My fav this week is laura geller baked blush in pink grapefruit.

My favorite product this week is the new Becca shimmering skin perfector in prismatic amethyst – it’s so beautiful!

Favorite products of this past week were fragrances and lipgloss *and* a liquid lipstick that shares a name with me! Anastasia Allison and Buxom Allison, and as for fragrance, Mirus Driftwood 🙂

My favorite is Becca Prismatic Amethyst- it is so gorgeous and I want it so badly. I would wear it all over my face if I had my wish. If I had any sense of self-control, I’d wear it high on my cheekbones, inner corner of my eyes, and the bridge of my nose.

My favourite product this week has been the Givenchy Eyebrow Couture Definer Intense brow pencil in the shade Brunette. After being on the hunt for a holy grail eyebrow product, I’ve finally found the one! As pricey as it may be, I feel like this is going to last me forever because of it’s light and powdery texture. It goes on so smooth and powdery, without any waxiness or tugging, and it’s extremely longlasting with the most natural finish. The brush on the back is great for brushing up the hairs and evenly dispensing out the product, and while the pencil is the sharpening kind, you get a lot of use in between sharpening.

Fave of the week: the Becca Amethyst highlighter. I am a sucker for these. I also bought a NYX duochromatic highlighter and I haven’t tried it yet. I think I have a penchant for highlighters.

Whoops, forgot to say how I’d wear this – as a cheekbone highlighter of course, but also on the brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes (depending on the shadow colors).

I have been pulling out my Laura Mercier Eye Art Artist’s Palette and loving it all over again. Plus I can’t wait to get my Becca ~ Prismatic Amethyst ~ it SHIPPED TODAY 🙂 I am a sucker for purples… Next I’m getting the NYX lavender steel!!!

Estee Lauder Bois de Rose Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick. It’s such a lovely, warm color, and it looks great on you in the pics. It would be a “natural look” for me!

My favorite product this week is Becca’s Prismatic Amethyst – Iightly dusted on tops of cheek bones, brow bones and cupid’s bow. What a pretty reflect!

kevyn aucoin’s neo limelight is just so pretty!! as always, i check your blog before buying any makeup products that have mixed reviews

My favorite products this week have been Besame Dusty Rose 1969 lipstick, Anastasia Beverly Hills Moonchild palette, and my Beauty Blender (which I can’t believe I was considering returning initially)! I actually wore Pink Heart from the Moonchild palette with a really simple matte eye look (Tarte Tartelette) and the Besame lipstick, I felt the pinks complemented each other nicely 🙂
