Hi everyone! It's the end of another month, which means it's favorites time! It also means that I'll be getting married in three weeks. Three weeks?! Where did that time go?! It's seriously going by fast, but anyways, lets get on to what I've been loving this past month. It's not a whole bunch since I haven't experimented too much lately, but these products are really great!
First up, we have the limited edition Wet N' Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection in Going in the Wild. Now I only used this one time, and I used the purples on the left hand side, but boy oh boy, are they beautiful! I followed the look exactly how the colors are to be used and it looked so nice, I even got some compliments when I went to work. Great little palette if you can get your hands on it!
My next favorite is the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzing Powder. This is a mini size I bought that also came with a little brush for $15. The brush that came with it is alright, but I use a Real Techniques Contour Brush with this. I'm surprised with how much I like this! I wanted to just get the small size because this is my very first use of a bronzer ever, so I wasn't sure if I'd like it. I've been using this just to contour my cheekbones with, and it's surprisingly easy to work with and blends well. It also helps that it smells like cocoa! I'll probably buy a full size of this when I run out of this little one.
Then we have the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation in the color Light 42. I wanted to try this for potentially wearing it for my wedding. I bought the lightest shade online figuring it would be fine since I'm usually paler than whatever the lightest shade is in any brand. Imagine my surprise when I used this and it's actually lighter than my skin! Miracle of miracles, I'm not as pale as I thought! Anyways, I used it by itself at first and it matches my neck as long I blend well. Next time I tried this I mixed it with a different foundation that matches my skin alright but is a bit dark by itself. It was perfect. I think this is a great foundation. It lasts for a very long time on my oily skin, but I do notice it gets a bit spotty by the end of my work day. I'm used to that though. This covers imperfections very well also. If you want to try this, I recommend testing it in store. I blindly bought it online without testing it first but I'm okay with it honestly. I can wear it by itself, but it looks better when I mix it with a darker foundation or if I use the Too Faced bronzer above.
This last product is my star favorite of the month. This is that little beauty sponge that every beauty blogger/vlogger and their mother and dog talk about, and that is the Beauty Blender. Sorry this is so dirty, but it's been very loved, plus that Kat Von D foundation stains like a mother. Anyways, I always heard great reviews of it but I didn't want to give into the hype. Since I'm using my wedding as an excuse to buy new things, I gave in to see what it was all about. I kid you not, the first time I used this, it was love. The heavens opened up and angels were singing. I finally believe the hype and can confirm that this is truly amazing! This little baby makes my foundation look completely flawless and it covers up imperfections beautifully. The pointed tip makes it easy to get into the corners of the eyes and around the nose. Before I use this, I wet it first and squeeze it out in a towel and let it dry for about 15 minutes. I should also mention, I bought the double pack of these because it was a better deal. I'm glad I did because I will keep buying these for probably the rest of my life.
That's everything! I know I didn't have many products this month, but these are all very loved products and I couldn't be happier. I think I may be done buying makeup for quite a while. I've purchased alot lately and I think I can make a decision on what to wear for my wedding!
Remember I still have my giveaway going if you haven't checked it out! There is still one more week left to enter, so good luck if you do enter or if you already have :)
