I was blown away by YSL Rouge Volupte Oil in Stick Lipstick in shade #89, which I bought a couple weeks ago. Gorgeous color, gorgeous formula, gorgeous packaging.

I’m still loving the Milk Glow Oils. The color lasts all day on my cheeks and looks healthy and natural. Even the sheen looks natural, but somehow not oily. It’s like the ‘glass skin’ trend, I love it. I’ve been smoothing them on my lips in place of afternoon balm, too, and the color just has a kind of glow. YSL used to do these rouge volupte tint-in-oil that glowed like this, but that product applicator was always really messy. I just love these.

My Natasha Denona Gold, and mini Nude palette. It’s the texture of these eyeshadows that for me, are like no other eyeshadows I own. For a less expensive palette, it’s Colorpop’s Yes Please. Great formula, & price. And, love that sunset look I can create for a change.

Overwhelmingly it’s the Juvia’s Place I Am Magic foundation. I found my perfect match in one go and the coverage is superb. I’m very happy with this foundation and recommend it to anyone who will listen. I even sent a bottle of it to my cousin.

The Kaja eye shadow trios. I can’t even describe how beautiful they are!
ColourPop’s Just My Luck palette is absolutely stunning and a pleasure to work with.
The Sephora #Lipstories collection were a pleasant surprise. I wasn’t sure what to expect since Sephora brand is either wonderful or a miss, and these are a huge hit.

After looking for two years, I finally found Good Stuff at TJMaxx, including an Anastasia blush trio and the TooFaced White Peach palette. With my fair skin and lack of ability to apply eyeshadow well, the on-the-sheer-side palette is my absolute favorite thing right now. I know pigment is supposed to be everything, but when you’re Casper and have horrible skills, less is your best friend. 😱

If I had different coloring, that Chrissy Tiegen/Becca palette and the smaller-but-still-large size Kevyn Aucoin Sahara highlighter would’ve also been mine … I’ve wanted the Ibiza forever. Sigh

L’oreal Color riche shine in dazzling doe. Haven’t had a l’oreal lipstick in decades! It’s sheer, a good cooler nude for me, and is wearable to no m/u day job. That one was a true surprise. I’m the ‘if you like the formula, buy it in every suitable color’ (and vice versa) person. So, I tend to have hefty representations in some brands and zero in others. And not even a l’oreal Concealer, much less a l/s. So, thanks for featuring dazzling doe here.

Really loved, like purchased them all, Marc Jacobs Beauty See-Quins e/s. I am about to buy at least one of the Cover FX duos so I am hoping I am going to love it too!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara: I have a mini I got from Sephora with point perks and I absolutely love it, from the way my lashes look to the fact that stays put all day on my watery eyes.

Last night at MAC, I applied their Electric Wonder Lipglass in Rockstarz over Life In Sepia lipstick. Definitely wasn’t expecting to love it, and had actually only tried this at the urging verging on insistence of a very cool SA!
But; WOW, I really loved it! Mind you, I don’t usually look quite right in anything on my face that leans grey, so this was quite the surprise, as both shades run taupey. Life In Sepia having a pinky-taupe (or is it taupey-mauve?) hue to it. Rockstarz is a bronze-taupe.

Natasha Denona Biba. I her eyeshadow was expensive for no reason, but I really like the formula. I find myself using at least one shade every day and mixing it with another palette.

*Sephora Rouge Lacquers. Such a great formula, and beautiful shades.
*ColourPop Jelly Much Eyeshadows. They dry down completely on my lids and don’t crease, and get compliments on the sparkle. This is a win for my oily lids and hooded eyes.
*Dior Diorskin Nude Luminizer Blush. Too beautiful, and too expensive. lol
*Viseart Bright Editorial Palette. I own many bright eyeshadows, but these blend the best of them all. Phenomenal.

UD GOT Lannister Eyeliner, ABH discontinued their gold eyeliner and I was freaking out because I didn’t want to use it. Now I can relax, for a little while any way…!

Probably No.7 hydra luminous foundation! It is my HG of foundation for my dry skin and dewy needs! It works perfectly over MAC strobe cream and very good coverage for something so glowy, just need a tiny bit of MAC studio finish spf35 concealer, translucent powder and MAC fix plus and my base has never looked so good ever!

About 4 months ago I bought a Giorgio Armani A-line liquid blush in 50-pink.
I tried it, liked it and put it away. I had just bought a couple Flower Beauty blushes in the tubes and I was using those on a regular basis.
Then there was a question here about what 5 items would you declutter. That caused me to look closer at what I had and I rediscovered the GA blush. Since that day I haven’t worn any other blush. The tone and finish look very natural on my skin, it is very easy to apply and blend. It stays all day and I am so pleased to have found it again. I never pan color products but I think this might end up being the exception, I love it that much.

Ciate nail polish in Cyclone, I like the interesting colour and I love that it’s still on after two (2) weeks with minor wear on the tips. I’ve never had a nail polish last even a week and find this absolutely fantastic.

I think “love” is a strong word for cosmetics, but the Baked Eyeliner from Melt is a great (great!) color for me, and wears well. Two thumbs up!

Nars Orgasm cream blush palette. I know most people hated it, but it’s right up my alley and I have used it every day since purchase. Love. It.
