Just a quick post on a few products I've been enjoying!
I know I haven't been blogging very much lately.... hopefully with Halloween just around the corner and IMATS in a couple of months I'll have some cool looks to share with you guys.

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Love this stuff! It's very thin and lightweight, has quite a light to medium coverage, and a really nice natural glowing finish. I'm a firm believer in a very light coverage foundation that you can build or add concealer to to get a nice no makeup makeup look. It's great for all skin types and caters to a wide variety of skin tones.
Stila Lasting Perfection Concealer I've dug this up out of my makeup collection and am happy to have rediscovered it. This is a great concealer! Oil free, nice creamy texture, and good coverage! This concealer works great in a pinch mixed with primer or moisturizer as an all over foundation as well!
Nars Multiple in Cap Vert Multiples are lightweight creams that can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. This particular one was part of the limited edition bronzers that were brought out maybe a year ago. I love cream products because they melt in and match skins texture so perfectly! Lately I've been a huge fan of layering this cream bronzer under my Guerlain Terricotta Bronzer for a really dimensional glow. Look for cream bronzer alternatives in brands like 2Faced, and Laura Mercier.
Tarina Tarrantino Eyeshadow in Butterfly Black My go to eye look lately has been a smudgy black liner on the outer most half of the lashline for some definition and added thickness to the lashes. The best and quickest way is with a small brush and a deep black matte shadow. This one is discontinued but I love it because it's SO black and dense with incredible payoff! You can find great alternatives in Laura Mercier's Noir (Holts/online exclusive) and Urban Decays Blackout.
Ole Henrikson Ultimate Lift Eye Gel Roll On I really love the cool and refreshing feeling that really lasts when I use this product. I use it in the morning under makeup and at night after scrubbing off makeup when I find it very soothing. I'm a lazy daisy and really appreciate the roll on aspect and love that it's easy age prevention.
Korres Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial Besides the fact that this smells amazing!!! It actually shows results! I genuinely notice a brighter complexion in the morning, and it feels so cushiony soft on my skin. It is packed full of good for you ingredients like jojoba, rose water, vitamin C, aloe, soybean, vitamin E, rosemary... wow! These oils are noncomedogenic so don't be scared combo skins!
Dsquared2 She Wood Golden Light Perfume I absolutely love this fragrance! It's fresh, floral, and woody with notes of orange blossom, musk, and cedar. It reminds me of sunscreen, the beach, and being in Florida when I was a kid.
