The Current (Beauty) Crushes


I am crushin’ hard over a few of these beauty products lately, and I thought I would share them all with you!

I’ll start off with the Beauty Blender.  I often go between using this and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (which is a great dupe).  I have recently been using this to apply my undereye corrector and concealer.  It has a nice pointy edge that I use (gasp!) DRY…I think it’s great for getting up under thurrr and blurring out those dark circles.

Next is this beaut – the NARS Dual Intensity Shadow in Himilia, which ohh my lanta is amazing.  The color is a shiny warm topaz and the texture is so soft and perfect.  It is NARS after all, and they never do me wrong.  Lovin’ this on the lid.

I’ve been winging out lately with this Maybelline Master Precise black liquid liner.  This is a super fine felt tip liner that I love for winged liner.  It lasts all day and is super black.  In addition to using this, I use my ol’ trusty Loreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.  This is a fat little pencil that is soo black, and well, smoldering.  I tight line with this and it doesn’t budge at all.  It’s one of the few that stays put in my waterline.


Bare Minerals
is my lazy-girl foundation, I’ll admit it.  There are times when I dont want to walk all the way over to the sink to dampen up the ol’ BB and start with all that liquid foundation nonsense.  As someone who wears a full face of makeup all day err day…sometimes I don’t have enough time in the morning to go all out (them kids tho).  This foundation gives me a light coverage – perfect for the preschool drop off days 🙂

Now, for the cheeks – I have been using this NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam.  This little gem is a cream highlighter that is a subtle silvery pink, and looks great on the tops of my cheekbones for that glow.  It doesn’t have glitter or sparkle, just a sheen.

I have also been loving the Boudoir lashes by House of Lashes.  These lashes are very full and soft, and give a feminine doll-like look to the eyes.  They’re perfect for a date night.

What are you crushin’ on lately? 🙂
