Some of my all time fave products

I haven't been doing many monthly favorites lately, and in fact I haven't been posting much lately which I'm sad about but I've been extremely busy. So I thought to put together some of my all time favorite products in a quick post (which turned out to be really long)
Starting with eyes:
1. I completely adore Urban Decay Eyeshadows. I am not specifically mentioning any fave UD eyesahdows but I love every one that I have. They are pigmented, they are a dream to apply and the colors are gorgeous. What's not to love?

2. Mascara. This changes all the time because I constantly try different mascaras. I love to play up my eyes and would never leave the house without mascara but two that I have been loving lately are MAC's "False Lashes" mascara that truly gives that full volume look but keeps the lashes soft and natural feeling and Benefit "They Are Real" mascara that has an amazing wand that catches every lash for that sexy doll eye look.
3. I don't wear foundation and haven't in about two years with maybe an exception here and there. I love mineral powders but I just discovered Boscia BB cream and this is one of those must have items for me. I need to educate myself more on the BB creams but all I can say is that this is light coverage but gorgeous finish. The BB cream itself is "a do it all" product and it hydrates, firms, soothes the skin, diminishes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and unevan skin. Yes PLEASE!!!

4. I haven't been wearing lipstick much lately but some of my all time favorite products that I always love and always come back to are the Bare Escentuals Buxom lipgloss. Not only do they came in a verity of gorgeous colors, but they don't have the chemicals that many lip glosses do. Given that these go straight on the lips, I feel great putting on something more natural. I have several of these, but Amber (pic below) is one of my favorites.
5. Boscia Skin Care like. I love Boscia. It's a Japanese skincare line and I'm convinced that when it comes to skincare the Oriental ones are leaps and bounds ahead of us. Bosica is free of those pesky petrochemicals, sulfates, perservaties etc etc....two of my fave products are the Lumiziaing Black Mask and the Clear Complexion Mask.
These are some of my all time faveorite products most of which I would and have repurches and wouldn't be cought without.
Thank you for reading and hope you're having a great day!

MAC Stunner blush from MAC Me Over Collection

As many pink blushes as I have, I'm always in the look out for a special pink and MAC'S Stunner blush is one of these pink blushes that is a must have in my opinion. It's like MAC's well dressed blush in the likes that's its a soft pink with a shimmer quality that instantly warms up your complexion but also highlights at the same time. It gives the skin that gorgeous glow within.

I adore this pink. It's very radiant and gorgeous.
What did you get from this collection?

Craving a bit of Autumn

Does anyone else gets excited about the begging of a new season? Autumn is a month away but I always start craving it at the end of August...I love Autumn.. the color of leaves, the crisp air and of course the dark luscious nails. Today being in a very autumn mood, the polish of the choice was Butter London La Moss. This is a very rich cranberry dark color. It's extremely gorgeous on and very close to Chanel Vamp which is one of my all time fave nail polishes.
The rest of the day will be spend finishing up "4 Blondes" and enjoying a cup of Oolong tea. I love this book by the way. This is my second time reading it I've enjoyed it so much.

Hope you all have had an amazing week.

NOTD -OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy

I have had this color for ages but always felt that it washes me out a bit so I had casted it aside. Since I have gotten a bit tanned this summer, I decided to give this a second chance. I truly love this color with a tan. It feels very summery. It's a tangerine meets melon type of color and the name is adorable.
What do you think about this color?
Hope you all have had a wonderful day.
