Hey guys and welcome back! I don’t know about you, but I’m not the biggest fan of monthly favorites posts or videos. Most of the time, people have been trying products out for a month if that, then talking about their favorites and then do it again for the next month, never hearing about the previous products again. Now, that’s not a terrible thing and if you love those types of posts, power to you! For me, however, I enjoy favorites posts about products people have been using for a while and continue to use, do you know what I mean? Today, I thought I would share some products that I have really been enjoying for a while now and this isn’t just going to be about makeup. I thought I would share movies I’ve been enjoying, music, fragrances, and makeup. So if you are interested, just keep on reading!
Should I start with makeup? Yeah, let’s start with makeup. Now, I don’t try a shit ton of makeup or buy a shit ton of makeup to test out, but I have been shopping my stash and rediscovering products. One of those products is the Urban Decay Afterglow 8-Hour Powder Highlighter in Sin ($26 US Affiliate Link | Regular Link). On Ulta’s website, it is described as a pale nude with a gold shift. I forgot how much I enjoy this highlighter. I don’t get it to the point where it is super blinding, I’m more into a natural, lit-from-within type of glow, but it reminds me so much of my Anastasia Beverly Hills Starlight Illuminator that’s been discontinued. I’ve pulled it out recently again to use with my August Makeup Basket but forgot to add it to my post.
The second makeup item is my EM Cosmetics True Gloss in Truffle Haze ($17 US Regular Link). This gloss is absolutely beautiful, feels hydrating and comfortable on the lips. It is also not sticky, which I love. Now, I don’t wear this to work, because that is asking for a disaster to happen (dog hair stuck to my lip the entire day, um no thank you). However, I have been wearing this almost every day that I’m off of work on top of whatever lip product I am wearing (although, not on top of my black lipsticks lol). Such a beautiful, beautiful gloss.
Last makeup item I’m going to talk about is my Kat Von D Signature Brow Precision Pencil in Graphite ($20 US Affiliate Link | Regular Link). Spoiler alert for my 13 by Halloween Project Pan, I finished off my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Ebony ($21 US Affiliate Link | Regular Link), so I have been using this nonstop all month. I’ve used it a little bit before but stopped in order to finish my brow wiz. I didn’t think I would love this so much, but I really do. The shape is perfect for getting hair like strokes and the formula is creamy enough to easily get pigment on your brow, but not too creamy to wear I think I am going to add too much product to my brows. I would definitely agree that I can achieve the micro-bladed look with this product!
That’s it for the makeup portion. Like I said previously, I really want to hone in on products that I have been enjoying, not just throwing something on here for the sake of throwing something on here. Now onto everything else.
For music, what’s been on repeat on my phone has been Love Lies by Khalid & Normani, Apeshit by The Carters, Natural by Imagine Dragons, Cry Little Sister by Marilyn Manson, Go to War by Nothing More, Sin Pijama by Becky G & Natti Natasha, and Love is Madness by Thirty Seconds to Mars ft. Halsey. As you can see, I tend to listen to a wide range of music. These have all been played on repeat so many times, it’s almost ridiculous.
For movies, I haven’t gone out and seen anything new. Although, I did see Deadpool 2 in theaters when it first came out (funnier than hell mind you), but at home, I’ve been watching Jaws 3 and Maximum Overdrive on Amazon Prime Video nonstop, and on Netflix watching Blackway and Se7en (my all time favorite movie). For shows, I’m not a huge show watcher, unless of course we are talking about Hannibal, but I have been rewatching season 1 and 2 of Queer Eye quite often on Netflix. Damn, if you ever need a good cry, Queer Eye delivers!
So that does it for things I’ve been into lately. I would really love to hear about some things that you’ve really been into lately, what songs have you been playing on repeat? Or what makeup have you really been gravitating to? Let me know in the comments! I don’t plan to do this kind of post often because like I’ve said, I don’t buy a shit ton of makeup and I’m also a creature of habit when it comes to movies and music. But every few months or so is what I’m thinking. Anyway, thank you so much for taking time out of your day to read this and until next time!
