Current eye favorites

I wanted to quickly share my current favorite eye products. I have been using these items on a day to day basis and would absolutely recommend any and all of them! I feel like I get so caught up in researching, buying, trying, and reviewing new products that I can overlook old favorites.

  • Clinique Lash Doubling Mascara - lengthening and a little volumizing, lasts all day
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel - holds my brows in place with no fuss
  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Color in Sandglow - pretty bronze pearl 
  • Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion - my current favorite eye primer
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Medium Brown - has started drying out, but still looks great in my brows
  • Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette - an old, much loved favorite
I hope this inspires you give more love to some older favorites in your collection!

Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage Concealer SC-2 [review] [swatches]

Laura Mercier's Secret Camouflage concealer palette is a cult product. I bought it almost a year ago after seeing it recommended by Lisa Eldridge on YouTube. I picked mine up from Sephora, Secret Camouflage retails for $34 for .26 ounces of product.

I selected shade 2 (SC-2), which contains a yellow shade and a peach shade that can be mixed or used separately.

Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm - Rose Passion [review]

Today I bring you a review of the new Bare Minerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm in Rose Passion. I love trying out tinted lip balms, because my lips are always dry and they are work friendly. I chose the shade Rose Passion because it looked like a nice muted red rose pink and most of the line is made up of brighter shades. I bought mine for $16 at Ulta.

If the color Rose Passion doesn't float your boat, I swatched the entire line of Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balms here.

BESTOPE 4pc eye makeup brush set review

I love buying makeup brushes and I'm a sucker for a good deal. I picked up the Bestope 4 piece eye makeup brush set on Amazon for about $5. It was a bit of a gamble because I couldn't find many reviews on if Bestope makeup brushes are good (or not), but I gave it a go anyway. I have seen the price of the 4pc set vary over time, from $5 to about $8, so keep an eye on the price in your cart for a few days before buying.

The set contains:
  1. Small Tapered Contouring Face Brush- large pencil brush, I use it for concealer
  2. Small Flat Blending Face Brush - flat top stipple / blending brush, this shape is difficult to use and not very practical, it works decent for small area highlighting with a cream product
  3. Small Round Blending Face Brush - round top buffer / blending brush, much too large to use as an eye blending brush, I use it for setting powder over concealer, could also work well for nose contouring or applying an all over lid base / eye primer
  4. Small Angled Contouring Face Brush - slightly angled version of the round top brush, the angle is not cut enough to add value, basically functions as a lopsided round top buffer
