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.

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! ?

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.

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.

Abby Avatar

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 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 own the nyx lavender highlighter and it is so much fun to wear! I’m wondering how much better the new becca one is tho… might need to splurge

Alicia Avatar

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

Michelle Avatar

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!

SNH Avatar

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.

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!!!

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!

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 🙂
