It’s been a while since I’ve done a good monthly favourites beauty roundup, but I’ve been loving all of these items just too much to keep them to myself! And who knows, maybe you might love them too!!
Before I start talking about everything beauty, can we just take a moment to appreciate this beautiful silk robe from Shop Tobi? I honestly think it’s meant to be worn as a kimono (I’m not that brave), but I’ve been wearing it all around the house because I’m extra like that.
If you’ve been kicking around here for a while, you’ll know that I don’t get too wild with my beauty routine. I like classic looks that enhance my features, though if I’m feeling really wild I might rock a bold lip. I never use foundation but I love a good tinted moisturizer and the Origins Ginseng one is, quite frankly, the shit. No messing around with a billion shades, no finicky applications (fingers baby), and the result? Even, glowy, energized skin! I love to pair it with the Glossier Stretch Concealer (just under my eyes)…base done, easy!
For blush (you’re not as white as I am and don’t use blush) I’ve been reaching for the Glossier Could Paint for a simple natural flush and the Make Up For Ever Artist Powder for a little more pop! I’m such a huge fan of the MUFE powders and love love love that I can create my own little palettes with them (with SO many shades to choose from too).
In other news, who’s tried anything by AG Hair? I’ve been using their Natural Remedy Leave On Mist for a few months now and love how shiny and healthy looking it leaves my hair…and the smell, oh the smell! Seriously hooked.
How could I write a monthly favourites post and NOT mention Fenty Beauty!? As it was my first purchase (a little treat for myself), I decided to pick up something that wasn’t like anything else I own…so of course I went for the Killawatt Trophy Wife Highlighter. Let’s get real, this is not a proper highlight for white girls BUT it makes the most epic eyeshadow ever! I’m obsessed.
While we are on the topic of eye makeup, I wanted to introduce you to Antonym Cosmetics which is a certified organic, cruelty-free makeup brand. I was sent a few of their items to try out and while they are all lovely, I REALLY LOVE the mascara..and hey, if it’s good enough for Elizabeth Banks, it’s good enough for me.
To finish, the Clarins Nude Lip Pencil and Joli Rouge Lipstick in Tea Rose have been my perfect pout toppers! Clarins is always my most used for lip products because they just feel sooo good and literally go with everything too. You wont find any super heavy/bold options with these, but the range of shades that are offered are perfectly natural and flattering for anyone.
Before I wrap this up (so close), I HAVE to introduce Pinrose to you, a new fragrance brand that I have quickly become obsessed with! Their packaging is the stuff of cool girl dreams and the scents are absolutely dreamy. I love these little perfume sleeves (no, they aren’t fancy condoms), perfect for travel or a gal on-the-go! I already have a list of about five different scents that I want full sized bottles of…opps.
Have you tried any new beauty products lately? List your faves below!
