This Week's Most Loved #50


When Christmas is over it always feels like a mad sprint to the end of the year. The beauty product train just keeps on going though and I have a handful of products that I've been loving lately. 

There's a new MAC lipstick love in my life that I purchased when I replaced my lost "Syrup" a week or so ago. MAC's "Nouvelle Vogue" is a matte pink mauve that has a really great look on the lips. It's not drying and is one of those everyday colors that are easy to wear without much fuss.

I've also really been enjoying using the Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray lately. Salt sprays have always concerned me for some reason. I feel like they never work on my hair and leave it feeling weird. This one however has been a pleasant surprise. My hair doesn't get any amazing beachy waves, but it does get a very nice texture and grit to it that I'm on the constant hunt for.

If you watched my vlogmas videos then you will be well informed regarding the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation debacle I went through a couple of weeks ago. After a lot of debate in the store I picked up the shade "Punjab." Once I left the store I swore the shade was too yellow for me, but after a full application at home I wasn't so sure. I decided to keep the shade and after weeks of almost exclusive use I'm positive the shade is a touch too yellow, but still wearable. Personally I've grown to like that it's a smidgen on the yellow side as it helps my skin look more balanced in most lights. The product itself is fantastic and I swear it looks better and better as the day goes on.

Finally I've sworn to myself to get back into wearing nail polish. I've been using Essie's "For the Twill of It" this week and still adore it. It's this multi-dimensional blue/green polish that always looks fantastic on the nails. The site says it's a rich medium brown with reflective green shimmer but it's definitely not brown in my book. 

What products have you been loving this week?
