This Week's Most Loved #41


This Friday sure did come slow this week. I'm happy to be sitting down to write this post with the weekend on the horizon and a lovely two days full of apple orchards, family time, and sleep. Here are the items that help make my days a little brighter.

Although I've just acquired MAC's "Captive" ($16), I'm fully obsessed. It's a bit darker than it's showing up in the photo. It's more of a plum berry with purple tones than the pinky hue it's giving off. It's my perfect autumn/winter shade. Sure I still love the death out of "Plumful," but "Captive" is the dark lip I've been searching for without making me too nervous to wear it. It's divine.

Another new addition to my stash that has risen to the top of the ranks this week is my Rimmel Scandaleyes Stick Shadow in "Trespassing Taupe". It's so easy to pop on the lids and blend out with a finger. The color is a beautiful caramel brown and lasts all day, without fail. It's dark enough that it shows up on the lid, but not super dark that it's va va voom for the workplace.

With all the dark lips I've been attempting to wear lately I've lightened things up substantially in the cheeks department. I've brought out my Revlon Cream Blush in "Pinched" ($10.99) to give my cheeks some color, but not too much that they compete with my lip color at the moment. Applied with either my fingers or the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush, this goes on creamy but finishes more like a powder. It's not the best in longevity, but it lasts throughout my work day well enough!

What products have you been loving this week?

xoxo Kayla

  1. The Revlon blush is so stunning, I've been looking for a blush on the neutral side and this looks perfect.
