Most Loved This Week | #1

  Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette- $52 Rimmel Stay Matte Powder- $4.99 Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Bittersweet- $28 Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara- $5.94 Tweezerman ProCurl Eyelash Curler in Rose Gold- $17 Dr. Jart Waterfuse BB Cream- $25

I got this idea from one of my favorite bloggers, Kate from ghostparties. Every week she rounds up her most used products and features them! I thought this would be a great way to show you guys some of my favorite products that maybe don't make the final cut to my month favorites videos! So without further ado, let us begin!
      The Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette was sent to me in a lovely package from Bobbi Brown's PR a few weeks back, and boy oh boy did it WOW me. I'm ashamed to say I tend to graze on by Bobbi's section at Sephora, and now I know I've been seriously missing out. We all know my love affair with Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette. Think of the Rich Chocolate palette like that palette....on crack.
    With 7 shadows (hey that's my lucky number) inspired by my favorite sweet treat Ryan Gosling Chocolate! Mmmm :) 5 out of the 7 are matte, with one shimmery shade, and one glitter based shadow. The pigmentation is beautiful, the colors work seamlessly well together and I've been loving using this for an everyday natural eye.
       How in the word did I consider myself a beauty junkie and I had NEVER tried the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. That's like saying, "Oh no, I don't know who Taylor Swift is" or "I'm not attracted to Justin Timberlake" Just. Plain. Wrong. Have I sold you yet on the sheer awesomeness of this powder? My skin has recently decided to join team oily (wooohooo) So when my usual Revlon Naked powder wasn't cutting it, I opted to try this. If you've got oily skin, or you're just looking for a powder that has a matte finish, THIS is the one for you! The coverage & lasting power is amazing, it doesn't budge! Not even on the sweatiest hottest of days, and it's less than $5...does it get better than that?
       I've been a fan of cream shadow sticks for a while, I seriously think I own every neutral NYX jumbo pencil. But oh my my my this Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Bittersweet is in a league of it's own. This is my one stop shop for an instant Kate Moss-esque smokey eye. I apply a tiny bit of this on my upper and lower lash line (it's VERY pigmented), smudge it out and BAM bedroom eyes in less than 3 minutes. But the most amazing part? You don't even need to set it with a shadow, when they say long wearing they mean long wearing, it doesn't move, smear, or transfer through out the day, despite being so creamy! The shade I have is from their rich chocolate collection, it's a simple dark brown, but it's got me lusting for more colors! AH! There just aren't enough words.
       Yes I'm basic. The Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara seems to be everybody's tride & true, but for the longest time I resisted liking it. Maybe I just didn't want to conform to the masses, but I'm finally admitting it. This mascara deserves every little bit of hype it gets, it creates gorgeous length & volume without getting clumpy. I'm not too sure that there is a major difference between the 'Flared' version and the regular, but either way it's been my go-to this week. 
       I've been using Tweezerman's ProCurl Eyelash Curler (in Rose Gold) since I first started wearing makeup back in high school, and I swear to bob you will not find a better lash curler. I've been through about 5 of these over the years and they're just amazing. I recently picked up a new pair and it reminded me how NICE brand new lash curlers are. This takes my stubby stick straight lashes and forms them into a beautiful curl that lasts. I'm in love. 
       Oh lawwwwd. BB creams. Can we make Kingsley do an Overexposed on this BB trend already? As far as I'm concerned drugstore and high end brands alike will throw 'BB' or 'CC' and, god help us all, 'DD' on to every tinted moisturizer out there. The Dr. Jart Waterfuse BB Cream is one of the only one's I've found that I actually enjoy and that I find DO something. Now if I'm looking for full coverage I'm gonna reach for a foundation, not this baby, but when I'm having a good skin day & I just want a bit of coverage and a healthy glow, this is perfect. Out of the other Dr. Jart BB creams, this 'waterfuse' one has a much more liquid base, and with that it means it's a little more sheer than their 'Premium' one for example. The waterfuse also has a cooling effect I find myself really liking during the warmer months. I find it offers much more coverage than drugstore BB creams I've tried, and it leaves my skin looking very healthy and glowing. And a little of this goes a LONG way, I've been using this on and off for about 2 years now...gross? Yes. That's okay :)

  2. This week I've been giving my Physician's Formula Happy Booster blush another chance. I originally didn't like it because it didn't seem to swatch well or be very pigmented. I saw in one of your videos that you had a similar experience with another PF blush and then changed your mind after using it more, so I decided to take it out and try again. I've been having better luck with now and have reached for it most of the time this week!

    Dr joy is a trust worthy spell caster and he will be of great help to you. I never believed in spell casting but After 4 years of marriage my husband left me because I lost my womb, and i was unable to give birth to children. I felt like my life has come to an end, and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time, but thanks to this spell caster called Dr joy whom i met online after my friend Becky Ross told me how he also helped her to bring back her husband in less than 2 days. I believed her and decided to give Dr joy a try and i contacted him on his email joylovespell@gmail.com. and explained my problems to him. He laughed and told me that In less than 2 days, my Husband will come back to me again, and that he will restore my womb and i will give birth to children. At first i thought it was a joke but i took courage and believed as Dr joy has said and it did happen just as this Great spell caster said, My husband called me and was crying, begging for forgiveness. I forgive him and today i am so glad that all worries and problems has gone away, and we are even happier than before, another good news is that i am pregnant now, and very soon we will have our baby. Dr joy is really a gifted and a powerful spiritual man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. I advice you all If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems just Contact Dr joy on his email on joylovespell@gmail.com. because he will always help you to solve all problems. Once again thank you Dr joy. Thank you, thank you.
