Loving Lately Makeup

It's been a while since I've done one of these posts. I find myself in a rut, and using the same makeup over and over again without much change. I decided to pull out my iFabbo store bought Hydroxatone BB Cream, and I'm back to loving it. I thought my skin got lighter, causing this to be too dark, but I think I was just using too much. The Japonesque foundation brush that I received in my Wantable Box helps a ton. It applies the foundation beautifully, much more so than the Real Techniques one does. I don't know why, but I was always under the impression that most foundation brushes are the same for some odd reason. Always wrong in my ignorance. It's all good, I'm glad I'm wrong because I love this little brush. It's so easy to blend, and not streaky at all.

I mentioned my latest concealer love last month. I see myself never letting this concealer go. I love it so much! It's the Loreal True Match Crayon Concealer amazing majestic magic in a crayon. Ok, so maybe I'm over exaggerating a bit, but you can't blame me. This thing is heaven in a tube. It covers my dark circles, and redness that loves to never go away. This with the Hydroxatone, and brush is all I need. It's just a great combination.

I've been gravitating towards a brighter lip lately. It's weird because that is so not me. Bright colors (other than nail polish) is not my friend. It usually looks too bright on my light skin. That's why I pick up my L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse in Coral Tattoo. I'm thoroughly convinced that someone out there is taking bets on which company comes up with the craziest names. If not, then they should (my money would be on Revlon). At the very least it would make for an interesting poll. Ignoring all that, let's get back on topic. I don't use this lip product the way it was meant to be used. I take the applicator, dab it twice on my top lip, three times on the bottom. Then with my ring ringer I blend it in, and cover my lips. It gives it a lighter tint that's not so opaque and bright. 

Lastly I have Zoya Mia. Oh Mia, how I love thee. I did a comparison last year of Mia and OPI Dulce De Leche. They're close, but I like Mia more mainly because I'm partial to Zoya's formulation over OPI's. I don't want to remove this polish, but I think that when I do it's going right back on. Maybe I'm loving Zoya in general, because that seems to be all I'm wearing lately. I don't know, time will tell.

What are you loving lately?

This post mentions products received as PR samples, although this isn't a review post. Those products are Hydroxatone BB Cream (which was an iFabbo sample, thus being a different kind of sample), and the Japonesque brush (not technically a PR sample item) which came in a Wantable Box that was from a PR company. I know, it's a bit confusing. Links provided in the post itself. Have a fantabulous week!
