Alright, my lovelies! Time for my first Friday Favorites!
The past couple weeks I have acquired several new products, but there have been a select few that I have turned to on the daily this week to get ready each day.
First, my primer. I bought the Milk Makeup Blur Stick at Sephora last week, used it that same night, and haven’t stopped using it since. I’m not a primer every day kind of girl much at all, but this…THIS. This little round stick of awesome-ness is quickly turning into a holy grail for me. It is simply put the most fuss free, easy to apply, nicely scented, best feeling primer I have used in ages (if not ever!). I just swipe it all over my face, and boom, ready to go. I have not noticed me really needing to even blend it in because of how well it applies. Added bonus, my skin looks FLAWLESS afterwards. Pores, fine lines, etc are filled in enough to look ideal but not so much that my skin doesn’t look like skin anymore. I have noticed that it helps to make my makeup last longer as well, so that is always a nice bonus. The stick itself also looks like it will last ages.
Next up, the foundation I have been reaching for! I found this Rimmel foundation on clearance at Walmart (not sure if that means they are planning on discontinuing it or not!) and it has been working out wonderfully for me. It goes on feeling a bit tacky and thick, but it settles down nicely on my skin. It also holds up all day. My only complaint is that is does seem to oxidize a bit as the day goes on. Not a huge fan of that. I also think I may have a sensitivity to one of the sunscreens in it (for reference, that ingredient is Octinoxate) because I have gotten a few pimples on my face after using it this week (same thing happened with the L’Oreal Pro Glow, should have known!!) but if you don’t have issues with that ingredient, then I recommend this!
Lastly, the Ofra Rodeo Drive highlighter. I got this in my Boxycharm (referral link posted in Discounts and Disclaimers section!) this month and it is so.freaking.gorgeous. I can see what all the hype is about. I am pretty fair, and this still works on my skin when I apply it with a light hand. I also enjoy packing it on my eyelids as an eyeshadow. I wore it to school today (because I was feeling extra!) and while I was worried it would be too intense, one of the corporation’s substitute teachers said I looked “so gorgeous, are you wearing new makeup?” (I had seen her on Wednesday after school and had basically no makeup on). So I’d say this stuff definitely helps to brighten the face. The golden tone is so flattering and will be even more perfect come summer.
Well guys, that’s all I have for you today! Drop a comment below, what was your favorite product this week? I’d love to hear your recommendations!
