Friday Favorites: What I Have Been Loving This Week7:24 PM
TGIF, everyone! I decided that I am going to start posting some of my weekly favorites. I may not do it every week, especially if nothing is really jumping out at me. But that is definitely not the case this week. Let's get tis party started!
1.) Skin Factory 7 Seconds Morning Sheet
I don't know what the heck Skin Factory put into these little pads of sheer and utter awesomeness, but they are one of the best skincare products I have ever come across. Hands down. They shave precious time off of your morning skincare routine, but make your skin look bright, clear and feel refreshed. It also lightly exfoliates. You keep it in the refrigerator, so the coolness really wakes you up and jump starts your day. I like to think of them as coffee for your face. They also have them in a Platinum Rose Wine Ampoule Mask, which I really want to try out now. But I already have a second pack of the original coming. If you want to check them out, you can buy them here.
2.) Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Light
I bought this to use in a contest Influenster was doing. I really didn't expect to like it this much, but it is a fabulous, inexpensive bronzer. It is matte, blends out well, and does not look muddy. At first I was worried that it would have too much orange, but that is not the case. If you are in need of a cheap bronzer, check this one out.
3.) Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation
Would you believe that I hated this foundation when I first bought it? That was when it was first released. But after applying it with a Beauty Blender, I adore it. The coverage is perfect, it feels lightweight, and my skin doesn't get as oily in the afternoon. I say "as oily" because no matter what I do, I get a little oily in my T-zone. It is just part of life. And Rimmel has been on point for me lately. Everything I have tried from them has been great.
4.) Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Mother and Susperia
I couldn't choose between these two shades, so I just included both. They are stunning and beautifully formulated. They are a little more on the pricey side, but they are absolutely worth it. If you want to see some swatches, just check out my review.
5.) Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Mad Max Brown
This eyeliner has become a cult favorite, and for good reason. Now she makes it in a beautiful dark matte brown. Sometimes a black liquid liner can look too harsh, but this brown one is the perfect alternative. It is long lasting, pigmented, and it is the easiest liquid liner to apply.
6.) James Bay's Music
Here is a music pick for your guys. I have been obsessed with his music, particularly the songs "Hold Back the River" and "When We Were on Fire." James's voice is one of the best I have heard.
7.) Dove Go Fresh Revitalize Body Wash and NutriumMoisture
I don't ever talk about what I use in the shower, but I had to mention this. I love everything about it. It smells amazing! I love anything that smells like citrus, and this definitely does. It is moisturizing and also lathers up really nicely. It makes your morning shower 10X better.
8.) My Best Friend's Instagram Account @lizmarie899
What I lack in nail polish and nail art skills, my she makes up for. She has been wanting to try blogging for a while now, so I suggested just testing the waters by posting her work on Instagram. She just has started posting her nail looks, so please stop by and say hi!
9.) Que Bella's Cherry and Apricot Exfoliating Cleanser
Que Bella was kind enough to send me some of their products to try after seeing how much I loved their aloe face mask. This was the first thing I tried and I already love it. It is not abrasive or harsh. It makes your skin feel baby soft and it smells divine.
If I had to pick one thing for you to try off of this (besides #9), it would be the Skin Factory 7 Minute Sheet. It is something else. And I mean that in a good way. The Que Bella exfoliator is also a good buy, and you can find it at your local Target.
I am not sure if I will get a post up tomorrow or not. I need to catch up on some stuff around the house and finally start on re-doing my room so I can have a better work space. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
