This Week's Most Loved #32


Italy feels like a distant memory now but at least I have some beauty products I brought back that can remind me of the adventures abroad. And boy are they good'uns. The Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows (€6,90) are downright amazing, but I've been loving shades "06 Marrone Dorato" and "35 Rosa Calypso Perlato" specifically. "06" looks very bronze/gold and glittery in the stick but one wash on the lid gives you the perfect amount of color without looking like you've gold leaved yourself. "35" is perfect for the days I don't want to wear a neutral shade, but still looks natural. They last all day on the lids and make getting ready in the morning a breeze.

For liner the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in "Damsel" ($20) has climbed to the top of the heap for being amazing at tight lining. I love that it's a dark brown so it's a lot more natural while still being noticeable. It's one of the most pigmented liners I've used that doesn't tug or disappear after a few hours. I feel ashamed that I hadn't tried it out sooner as it came with my Stila in the Light Palette. I always just assume the products in the palettes (brushes, etc.) aren't going to be the greatest. Silly, silly Kayla.

When I first got MAC's "Chatterbox" ($16) I was a bit worried that I had made a grievous mistake in getting something that was much brighter than I usually go, but it's been nothing but roses! "Chatterbox" is one of MAC's amplified lipsticks so the pinky coral really pops on the lips. It's still the brightest lipstick in my collection, but it looks oh so good on the lips. I've been loving wearing this with a more subtle eye to give a bit of color to my makeup. I love MAC's lipstick formulas and it lasts quite a while without looking patchy or weird. It's a win in my book.

What products have you been loving this week?

xoxo Kayla
