By request: Top 10 Products

Hi everyone! I was asked to picked my top 10 products from my collection. I must say it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.

1-Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist #42. Has 50% more pigment than traditional lipsticks so not only does a little go a long way but I find that I don't have to reapply for many many hours.

2- Burberry Sheer e/s in Gold Trench. The prettiest e/s I own.

3-MAC Blacktrack. This has been my HG liner for years, I wouldn't use anything else.

4- Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Rouge Flamme. I keep this one in my purse.

5- Burberry blush in Russet. This is so pigmented I only need to barely touch my brush to it and it picks up more than enough. Also smells divine.

6- Laura Geller Blush N Brighten in Honey Dipped. All my other highlighters have to fight this for attention.

7- NARS Luster. The glow it leaves on my cheeks is tdf!! I can't recommend this enough.

8- Sephora brand Moonshadow Baked Palette. I posted my favorite single e/s and now here's my favorite palette. I used this for a whole week straight and was able to create many lovely looks with it.

9- Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 in Linen. My local stores stopped carrying my old HG Carmindy foundation shade so I spent many months looking for a replacement. I used everything from Too Faced Amazing Face to NARS Sheer Glow but couldn't find an exact match. Till I came across this. Also, the formula is divine! I'm wearing it in the pics in my last post.:)

10- Sephora brand Lash Plumper mascara. I've gone through many tubes and will continue to do so. Love the brush and formula.

Thanks so much for reading!

Laura Geller Blush N Brighten- Apricot Berry

Back looks like it what beat up by the mob cause it arrived covered in tape
Ever since I got Honey Dipped in my Birchbox I knew I wanted to get another Laura Geller blush. I saved up my Birchbox points then purchased this blush with them. Apricot Berry ($29.50 for 0.32 oz) is shimmery highlighter/blush with peach, gold, berry, and purple veining which combines to create a gorgeous coral shade. Great texture and very pigmented.On a side note: This arrived 2 days after I ordered it, which is strange because my Birchbox gets here 10+ days after they ship it.

Anastasia Beverly Hills ILLUMIN8 With Youthful Synergy Complex Bronzer-Sun Kissed

Sun Kissed ($29 for 0.25 oz) is a stunning peachy bronzer with light shimmer that claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Youth Synergy Complex. Hydrating and loaded with botanicals and vitamins A, B, C, and E. Now, I'm only 25 so I don't think I'll be able to report back on whether or not it worked on wrinkles, but I really like that it has nourishing ingredients and the powder does feel a little moisturizing. Packaging is nice and slim so it fits nicely in my little everyday bag.

I promise there's a swatch there lol.

The light shimmer leaves more of a beautiful glow once on the skin rather than a load of shimmer.  Which I really like cause I use like to use the bronzer all over not just on my cheeks.
  Sun Kissed is a shade darker than my skin so it actually looks so much more natural than my usual Chocolate Soleil bronzer does. I could also see this working great on someone who wants a contour powder than looks very natural.  Sorry Chocolate Soleil, there's a new Sheriff in town. 

Available at Sephora or  Anastasia Beverly Hills
