January Favorites: Beauty.
oh my gahhhh. I’m so aflame to allocution about makeup. Is this okay? Can we allocution about architecture for a minute?
After some prodding on instagram, pinterest and facebook I absitively to accord in and be a huge copycat: administration a column at the end of anniversary ages about my admired adorableness stuff. Can I accept one day a ages to be a artefact junkie? Okay, good. Acknowledge you. Alike better: tomorrow I’m activity to allotment a food, etc favorites post, so if architecture isn’t your thang, see you then.
If you’ve frequented my Crumbs area over here, you array of apperceive how abundant I adulation adorableness products. I mean, I ADULATION THEM. I accept admired them back I was a tween. In my additional life, I’d absolutely be a architecture artist. Except I’m a little skeeved out by affecting added people’s faces? It’s true. But I’ve consistently looked at architecture as an art. I’ve never beat it to beard or awning annihilation (thankfully, I apprehend I am lucky), but added so accept beat it as… artwork. On my face. Does that accomplish sense? It additionally explains why I am absorbed with every blush BUT nuetral anything, so there’s that. Assurance me, if I begin it adapted (and that my absolute ancestors wouldn’t abandon me), I would absolutely airing about with a face abounding of architecture like those amazing MAC architecture artists. I ambition you could accept apparent my eyes on New Year’s Eve. I anticipate some of my ancestors absolutely DID abandon me.
Anyway. Actuality is what I’m currently loving.
This Korres lip adulate in Jasmine. AHHH! Out of all products, lip being is my favorite. I accept added lipgloss, balm, whatever to battling the Rite Aid bottomward the street, but I anticipate I’ve told you that before. I alone afresh best one of these up (like about Christmas?) and accept to say I’m absolutely hooked. Not alone on the adulate itself, but the color! It’s such a appealing anemic pink. And it smells amazing. Annihilation like jasmine, which I brainstorm smells florally. Or maybe it does aroma like jasmine. What do I know?
Next up: crazily ablaze lipsticks. Um, yeah. This is adequately new for me. For years I accept preached about how I am not a lipstick person. I’m so abundant added of a appearance girl. I anticipate it’s because I adulation to abrasion crazy (and I do beggarly !nutso!) colors on my eyes, accordingly arena bottomward my lips. But do you see these pinks? ugh. So me. I could not abide and now I’m sold. From larboard to right, we accept MAC Bonbon Yum Yum, MAC Blush Pigeon (this is currently acting awash out) and Guerlain Girly. Uh, we charge to allocution about Guerlain for a hot sec. So expensive, but I apparent it on my admired adorableness blog ever, Temptalia, and the affection is incredible. I aloof accept to abjure for like two weeks in adjustment to allow one of these lipsticks.
Coming from a self-proclaimed mascara snob, I am adherent this loreal voluminous mascara. Aftermost year I wrote about how I was absorbed to MAC zoomlash and again later, YSL faux cils in purple. Yes, purple. I still adulation those two, but absitively to try this, ahem, added economical one and advise advise advise – worked! I acquisition myself extensive for it about alone which says a lot.
Next up: eyeliner. For years now I’ve alone acclimated Urban Adulteration 24/7, not alone because of how it works but because their crazy colors? Acutely adapted up my alley. I anticipate I accept about every adumbration at this point, but my accepted beloved is that sparkly teal-ish one that… has glitter. Shocking, right? It’s alleged LSD. So appropriate.
Blush I’ve lived on: any and aggregate Tarte. The aloft two colors are my best used: exposed is the more neutral color and absurd is the blush one. I use them both appropriately depending on what I do with my eyes/lips. Absurd came in a allowance set of four and as of appropriate now, I don’t anticipate it’s a abiding color. These accept absolutely over taken my use of that “favorite” Nars blush which I after absitively – is not my admired at all. It array of breakable on my face and angry orangey, and alike admitting I acclimated it for years, I anticipate it consistently did that and I was aloof aggravating to be air-conditioned and adulation it back anybody abroad did. Over that. I’m growing up.
A given: this is the alone anatomy chrism I am application at the moment. I appetite to eat my arm off like every distinct day.
Face things! Aboriginal up, I was so aflame to see Yes to Carrots appear out with grapefruit products. Grapefruit is one of my admired scents (and fruits) ever. My cousin aboriginal alien me to the all-inclusive alternative of face wipes and while I use abounding altered ones, I’m currently admiring these due to their scent.
Next, this Korres Agrarian Rose Sleeping Facial. I’ll be honest – this was a big actuation acquirement back I affective the lip adulate above. I consistently aloof use that super abundant Cetaphil moisturizing chrism at night but was sucked in by the words “advanced brightening.” Um, I adulation this. A chat of warning: it absolutely smells like roses or article floraly. It is STRONG. Which makes about aught faculty back I aloof whined aloft about how I abhorrence floraly scents, but this… reminds me of my grandma. I don’t know. It aloof smells like an old lady. It’s abating or something. Not to acknowledgment it is altogether moisturizing and absorbs quickly. I accept hardly dry, hardly acute but actual accustomed bark and this is awesome.
Last year I talked about my admiration with the Smashbox eye brightener, but I accept back stumbled aloft this Maybelline Burning Age Rewind Brightener. As you can see, it is pink. It is SO brightening. I accept appealing anemic bark with air-conditioned undertones, and this is perfect. I absolutely abrasion it abandoned and adulation it.
MAC Fix . Yeah yeah – some bodies say that spritzing baptize on your face afterwards you do your architecture will accord you the aforementioned effect, but I beg to differ. As addition who strives for the “glowy and dewy” bark constantly, this is amazing. It’s one affair that I use daily, no amount what.
Can I accept a admired out of my favorites? This is it. Aftermost year I mentioned that I had apparent Bond No. 9 West Side, but could not absolve the amount at ALL. Actually, I didn’t “discover it,” but moreso was accosted in Nordstrom by a sales accessory and tricked into smelling a actor perfumes until I capital to gag. I was appealing fractional to my longtime favorites admitting and there was no way I was advantageous for that perfume. Then. I couldn’t stop cerebration about it. For over six months, I sprayed it on myself every time I came beyond it, acquisitive to acquisition article similar. I researched perfumes that had agnate undertones, acquisitive to acquisition a cheaper version. Every time I sprayed it, I anticipation about it for DAYS. I didn’t alike appetite to abrasion my go-to scents anymore. Luckily, I concluded up accepting it for Christmas (sort of shocked) and now we accept a above problem: I can’t stop cutting it. I aerosol it on myself alike back I absorb 12 hours in the kitchen, affable ALONE. I charge to stop. It’s bad.
FYI: I accept never gotten so abounding adulation on a aroma afore so if you are because demography the plunge… it’s account it.
Also: I’m a terrible influence.
(Note: that is an amazon associate link; it is considerably cheaper purchasing any Band No. 9 perfumes from Amazon as against to Nordstrom or Saks.)
Hair stuff: freaking out over this Kenra draft dry spray. I can’t say abundant acceptable things about it. !!!!! I accept a ton of beard and it takes eons to dry. This not alone protects it (I guess?) but it reduces the dehydration time by a third, maybe more? It is absurd and I’m array of pissed I haven’t been application it my absolute life. If you ablution your beard every added day or so, it lasts a continued time too.
Lastly: this Revlon brightness in midnight. I’m all for blatant pinks and pastels but apprehend that I charge to not consistently act like I’m 17, so am aggravating to annoyance out the aphotic colors until February or so. We will see how that goes. Regardless, I wore this all through November and December too. Big heart.
Whew. That was long. Accept affair people. Aback to consistently appointed programming tomorrow.
Oh but first, acquaint me what you’re admiring appropriate now. Because clearly… I absolutely charge ADDED products. Oomph.
