CURRENTLY LOVING | JULY 2016
TOO FACED HANGOVER PRIMER || I’ve fallen into the habits of every other beauty blogger and bought myself the Too Faced Hangover primer to really see what all the fuss is about. I have only used it a few times since I bought it but there are already a few things I’ve found intriguing about it. First is the intense coconut smell. I’m not usually a fan of coconut, but something about applying it to your skin in the morning feels very invigorating. I’ve also noticed that it is very hydrating without being oily. I’m prone to getting a few oily patches throughout the day along with dry ones, but this primer has helped keep the entirety of the face smooth and glowy without any oil. I do plan on using it a bit more before I decide if I’ll be repurchasing it, but for now I have really been enjoying the texture and formula of the product.
LA ROCHE-POSAY BB CREAM || Face products aren’t my thing. I always feel like there is something sitting on my skin that will rub off at any moment and leave me looking like a mess. However, there are days when my skin needs a bit of blurring. I have gone through a few products, mostly using powder based foundations, but I’ve been trying to edge more towards BB creams to keep my skin a bit more moisturized. I recently picked up the La Roche-Posay BB cream and have been liking it for the time being. Although I do tend to change my mind, so we will see how it stands the test of time.
NYX WONDER PENCIL || I’ve never been a fan of eyeliner despite how popular cat eyes have become these past few years. I just find that they close my eyes off when what I want is to make them look bigger. That’s when I realized how effective a nude waterline pencil is for creating that effect. Although it might be a bit scary to do at first, I’ve gotten used to it and like how long the NYX pencil lasts throughout the day.
ALDO SUNGLASSES || I picked these sunglasses up randomly at the mall a few weeks ago for less than $10 and I have been completely obsessed with them. Sunglasses aren’t something I thought I could play around with, but being able to enhance a look with an extreme cat eye frame has been pretty fun for the summer.
HAND FOOD HYDRATING HAND CREAM || This was also another random pick up from a few months ago, but I have slowly begun to really like this brand. The cream is thick enough to moisturize my oh-so-dry hands, but does not leaving me feeling oily or too greasy to touch anything else. The smell of the cream is also something I’ve grown to love—it’s very distinct but not too intense like many other hand brands.
