Recent Favorites 7.17.15

What's hip hop happenin', kids? I'm back with another 'Recent Favorites' post featuring a cute picture of messy swatches on a transparent dying hand ft. several blue veins... enjoy!!

The first thing I'm going to rave about it the big-ass swatch on the left which is kind of a rediscovery for me because I had left his product in the South of France and only found it again in April. It is The Body Shop Cheek Colour in '12' which UGH I'm just going to get out the way because I can't find it on their website. I don't know if maybe you can find it somewhere else online like on eBay or something but if not that's a real bummer because it's beautiful. It's an orangey apricot blush with subtle gold shimmer and it blends so beautifully and looks really brightening. There we go, it's over. I'm done. 

I've also been loving my Kiko Universal Fit Hydrating Foundation, which I have written about in *this post* in more detail so I won't repeat myself. Just know that it is still a firm favorite of mine, especially over the last couple of weeks or so. Next up, we have a hair product (a rare feature on this blawg) and that is the L'Oréal Professional Mythic Oil. I find it difficult to explain why I like a hair product but I will try my best. I've been using hair oils since they became a real thing maybe five or six years ago (maybe longer?) and I like to use this one on towel dry hair before I blow dry it. It helps keep the frizz at bay and makes my hair feel a bit less straw-like. Another favorite is the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara, which I wrote about very recently so click here for that. But basically it's my first venture into waterproof mascara and it's a good'un.

Last but certainly not least - the Kevyn Aucoin The Contour Book The Art of Sculpting + Defining, which I use on a daily basis for the contour powder and number 6 shade for my brows. It is just such a useful, multipurpose palette because you can use it for contouring, for your eyes and your eyebrows, so it would be really good to take on vacation. There isn't a single shade in there that I don't use. Love. It.

Until next time folks *kissy face* or *sleazy wink face* - you decide.

  1. I can't remember who, but I saw a beauty vlogger fave about the Contour Book and it's been on my wishlist ever since.

    Thank you for swatching, better to see if the colours will suit me.
