My Current Fav.'s....

Happy Wensday everyone =)
It's been a super rainy and icy day here in Northern New Jersey. I've spent most of the day on my laptop, since my apartment is still under construction. Hopefully tomorrow we have better weather so we can start painting and finish everything else. So I started thinking about what kind of blog posts I love to read the most, and I would have to say it's "My Current Favorite Products". So I decided to post my own products that I am using and loving right now.....

(Sorry in advance if this post is long)

Fragrance Fav.'s

1. Bath and Body Works perfume in Carried Away. This is a very light and fruity scent. In my opinion its cotton candy mixed with citrus scents. I have smelled a perfume kind of like this but I can't quite recall the name of this. Let me know if you guys have this and know what perfume I am talking about that smells alot like this one. I have a 4 of the Bath and Body Works perfumes and I am starting to become obsessed with collecting them. This is my ideal daytime perfume, especially now in the spring and summer months because of its light fruity smell. Only downside is that my sister is pregnant and cannot stand it when I wear this perfume lols. Other than that I love it!

2. Bath and Body works lotion in Twilight Woods. Again I am obsessed!! I love love love this lotion. It smells wonderful. The description in the back of the bottle is exactly what it smells like: enticing fruits and cypress. I put this lotion on as soon as I get out of the shower, just all over. I have had this bottle for 2 months and its almost gone. It's okay though, I purchased FOUR backups lols. I know, I'm crazy right? I love this so much, even my fiance loves it and honestly it has a very unisex scent to it, because one day he put it on along with his regular perfume and I was like WOW, what is that and it was this lotion. So I apply this with both my daytime perfume and my nighttime perfume and I get so many compliments. The scent lasts long, I counted 10 hours once, and I showered and you could still smell it a bit afterwards. I definitely recommend this lotion to everyone that asks what lotion from BABW's they should try.

3. Marc Jacobs Lola Perfume So this is my go-to nighttime perfume. It is a bit heavy but I love heavy perfumes and together with my BABW lotion in Twilight Woods, I find people everywhere I go going crazy trying to find out who's perfume they are smelling. (It's me!! lol) I think this scent is more for fall and winter tho because of its heaviness, so I need to find a new spring/summer nighttime scent. If I would have to describe this perfume it would be, pear with a bit of vanilla and I think a bit of musk. Definitely will repurchase.

Makeup Favorites

So starting from the top left:

Sinful Colors nail polish in Why Not - Love! I own alot of sinful colors and recently purchased this. I have it on my toes right now and Its the perfect bright spring blue. I will probably repurchase backups for the summer since I love to paint my nails almost everyday in the summertime. The lasting power with these is great, about 7 days with no base or top coat (I was in a rush lol) before I saw any chipping.

Revlon Color burst lip gloss in Crystal Lilac - I purchased this after seeing it on a couple of people on YouTube. The color is great with my skin tone, its not too sticky or too watery and I love the hint of minty scent it has.

Mac sheer tone blush in Sincere - This is my go-to blush when I don't know what to wear. Its the perfect pink for me with just a hint of coral. And since its sheer tone it's not super bright and loud.

Jane Colorless Staying Powder - Got this on clearance for like a dollar @ Walgreen's a while back and I love it. I go for more of a dewy foundation so this is perfect for applying just to my T-zone to avoid looking super greasy.

Mascaras - Cover girl Lash blast and Rimmel London MAX Volume Flash mascara - Love these two together. My lashes look fake!

Milani Eye Tech Liquid eyeliner - MeganHeartsMakeup from YouTube used this and I decided to try it since I sucked at using liquid eyeliner and this liner literally makes me look like I am a pro at applying liquid liner. Its so easy to do the winged eyeliner look with this!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind double face perfector in Medium - Again this makes you look like a pro at applying concealer. It cover my under eye circles, as well as blemishes and the highlighting part is great for the under eye. I only use both ends together if the foundation I am using is more on the matte side tho.

Mac Msf Natural in Dark - Great bronzer for me in the fall and winter and great all over powder in the summer.

Revlon Photo ready Foundation in 010 Caramel - great foundation! I have a review on this in an earlier post. Glad I decided to give it a shot.

Avon Smooth Velvet Lip Color in pink fluff - the perfect barbie pink for my skin tone!

Nyx jumbo pencil in yogurt - Great as a base for my eye shadows, but only on top of my primer potion. It creases like crazy on its own!

Nyx lip liner in Natural - I use this as an all over lip color or under my lipsticks when I have do nude lips.

Lancome Puodre Illuminatrice in Sun Shimmer - Love this as a highlighter on my cheekbones or for when I go out to parties I apply a bit on top of my blush for a bronzier look. Can't wait for the summer to use this when I am super tan.

Wet n wild blush in 834cHeather Silk - Really bright and pigmented but I love this.

Wet n wild eye palettes in silent treatment and walking on eggshells - Love these for everyday eyes!

Maybelline eyeshadow duo in brown tones - I use the lighter shade in this duo and my perfect highlight color or all over lid color when I do my dramatic winged liner.

Maybelline Lipstick in Totally Toffee - Perfect nude lipstick.

Mac eye shadows in Wood winked and Handwritten - My go to eye shadows, I love them. I think I will be using these for my wedding day makeup.

**Not pictured - Milk Of Magnesia - Perfect primer. I apply this with a cotton ball and just blot it on my Tzone and my makeup lasts for hours. Just by applying it I can see a huge difference with my pores and the amount of oil on my face.

I wanted to label these by number on the actual pic but couldn't figure out how to. This whole blogging thing is new for me, hopefully I pick up more skills as I go along. So anyways those are my favorite beauty picks, and until next post, ADIOS! <3
