Question Of The Moment.

Question Of The Moment
How often do you use face masks?
I used to do some kind of mask around every two weeks (or maybe week and a half). However, I've been horrible with face masks lately. I haven't done one in ages. I really need to fix that.

New Things.

I've gotten a few things recently. Here's a lookie at them.

Lush Wash Behind Your Ears Shower Gel
I'm not a fan of how this smells. But I'm gonna use it up because it's limited edition and it makes orange suds.

Prada Candy
Probably one of my favorite perfumes now. I've had multiple bottles of this, and I snagged another one during the Sephora VIB sale.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Cacao
I was running out of my L.A. Girl Concealer, so I figured I'd try something new. Everyone in the beauty seems to think this stuff is magical, so I picked it up. I've only used it once (as of this post) and I really like it so far.

Stella by Stella McCartney
I've wanted this fragrance for years. For whatever reason I never dove in and purchased it. Thank you, Sephora VIB sale.

Laquer Love: Zoya "Kelly".

Zoya Kelly

I never knew true love until I saw this nail polish. We all know how much I love greys/greiges, and this has always been the perfect nail polish color to me. Only problem is, I could never find it. But when I went to MadeYewLook's meet and greet at Ulta I finally found it. Since then, I've been wearing it nonstop. Like...the bottle is halfway gone. And I've barely had it a year. That's crazy for me when it comes to nail polish.

Zoya's Kelly is a dark grey creme with no shimmer or iridescence to it at all. It's just grey. The perfect grey. It's great when I've just worn a black/almost black polish, and I want to convince myself that I'm following that up with a NOT so dark color. Which it isn't - Kelly isn't one of those "you might as well have worn black" kinds of colors. You can tell this is grey and not black. And that's one of the reasons I love it. It's dark, but not aaaaallllll the way dark.

I really need to get another bottle soon. And by "another" I really mean four.

Monday Malice: ELF Baked Blush In Pinktastic.

ELF Baked Blush in Pinktastic

If you read this blog regularly, you'll know that I absolutely love highlighters. That's like...my favorite thing to put on my face. And while this product technically is a baked blush, let's be real here - this is a freaking highlighter.

ELF Baked Blush in Pinktastic

When ELF released these baked products I really wanted to get my hands on this. It looks so pretty and I love the pink veining going through it. Unfortunately, I was so so so disappointed in this product. It is glittery as all hell. It has some sheen in there, but for the most part you're getting glitter. It's similar to the overs-prays on certain products that eventually go away after use. But instead it's really just that over-spray packaged and sold as a "blush". When applying I barely get any real pigment - just a bunch of sparkle. And I'm one of those few people who don't mind glitter in my highlighters. But in order for that to work there actually has to be pigment in it as well. That's not happening with product.

ELF Baked Blush in Pinktastic Swatch

As you can see here, swatched on a finger it looks beautiful. That beauty does not translate well on the face. And it's so unfortunate because in the pan/swatch it looks so damn pretty. But it's all a damn lie and I'm so upset because I was rooting for a $3 highlighter to be my new favorite thing.

What lower-end highlighters do you recommend?
