*que Drake’s Fancy lyrics*

NARS Orgasm is a cult favorite. I think there was a point in time where I couldn’t watch a Youtube video without someone mentioning this guy. Recently the hype made waves again. I had sooooo many women come into Sephora asking for this because they saw it in the Wall Street Journal. Random! 

But with good reason. I love the gold shimmer in this blush, on my skin tone it just looks so luminous. I favor a matte finish to my foundations so I like how this adds some dimension or a skin like look to my cheeks.

Top 5, top 5, top 5

Another Drake lyric…sue me. The Makeup Forever Ultra HD was in my favorites many moons ago and honestly its always a favorite for me. It has medium to full coverage, so I can wear this day to day and also on nights when I’m going out. There isn’t any SPF in it so I don’t get that weird white flash back when I’m taking pictures. It is sooo lightweight, I don’t even feel like I’m wearing anything. I also love that there is such a good range of color selection – there has to be a shade for  e v e r y o n e.

However if you have oily skin I don’t think this is going to be your jam. I get oily in my T Zone and when I wear this it tends to look verrrry slippery by the end of the day. Aka not cute. Nothing a little setting powder can’t fix! 😉

I lucked out and made a trip to Ulta during their 21 days of beauty and got this little baby for $13!

Half off!!!

I have the Urban Decay 8 hour Afterglow powder blush in the shade Fetish. Blush tends to be the first part of your makeup that will fade as the day goes on. I think it was very smart of UD to make one that will last all day. In the pictures the blush is looking a lot more pink than it actually is. Its definitely a mauve – very neutral/natural. I found myself grabbing for this when I’m wearing minimal makeup.

Color correcting. Remember when that was all the rage a few months back? I wasn’t into AT ALL. Don’t tell me I need to color correct – just give me a full coverage foundation! Haha but I’ve changed my ways. I now wear a tinted moisturizer daily instead of a foundation, just because I want my skin to breathe a little more. Now that my skin has cleared up I want to keep it that way. Unfortunately I still have some lingering spots that want to stick with me 5ever so I have been using this color corrector to hide them. It has a very orange undertone so it hides the spots so well. It is a very creamy consistency and super blendable. I apply and blend it with my fingers, I think that a brush or beauty blender is unnecessary for this product.

Another cult favorite. If you’ve ever watched any Youtube video I’m sure the guru used NARS Radiant Creamy concelear in Custard. However ya girl has a little more melanin to her and custard is NOT my shade…no matter how badly I wanted it to be. For instrgam purposes 😉 you know. NARS did the dang thing and came out with more shade recently. I love that! Now I can use them for not only highlighting but contouring as well.

The name speaks for itself and that is exactly why I love this concelear. Its radiant – very luminous and healthy looking. Very very creamy. It blends like a dream, and I can wear it on top of ANY foundation I own. I’ve never had a mixing problem with it. AND it has great coverage. Its a jack of all trades I tell you!

Lastly I have been loving  these new Bite Beauty multisticks. So these are color sticks that you can use on your eyes, lips, and cheeks. I haven’t used it on my eyes yet..this is a little to pastel for my taste. However, I LOVE it as a blush. It reminds me of the Urban Decay one I mentioned earlier but with a more purple undertone. It is a little lavender-y. I just swipe it across my cheeks after I’ve applied my foundation and blend it in with my beauty blender. All praise the beauty blender!

I am also thinking about doing some fashion favorites for the month. Let me know if that is something that you guys would be into..? 😉
