Loves & Lemons | January 2015
I skipped out on Loves & Lemons last month since I felt it would be favorites overkill with my Best of 2014 series coming out at the end of December. That being said, I'm excited to share my loves (no lemons!) with you guys after my little hiatus! Grab yourself a Matcha Green Tea Latte (delicious recipe courtesy of Rebecca Lately) and let's rock n' roll!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Build Your Own Contour Palette, $40.00 USD. I posted a full review this week so I don't want to talk about it too much again here but WOW. These powders are incredible! Contouring is unbelievably easy once you have the right tools! I am living for Fawn as my cheekbone contour, and Banana under the eyes sets my concealer and makes me look alive. I've used this palette every day since I got it! | FULL REVIEW HERE.
Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Shower Gel, $12.50 USD. A shower bursting with the delicious aroma of fresh baked vanilla cupcakes? Yes, please! | FULL REVIEW HERE.
The Body Shop Papaya and Vitamin E Body Butters, $20.00 USD each for 6.75 oz. These thick, nourishing butters have been keeping my chapped skin at bay this month. My skin feels calmed and moisturized from shower to shower. Vitamin E was a gift from Stephanie Eva, who just so happened to see it on my Beauty Wish List Pinterest board! How cool is that?! It has a powdery floral scent and the pink tub appeals to my girly side. The Papaya is LE (get it while it's hot!) and smells lush and tropical. After this and the Supergoop! Acai Fusion Lip Balm, I think "tropical fruit" is my favorite scent in the world. Give me all of the papayas and passion fruits!
L'Oreal Glossy Balm in Lovely Mocha, $7.99 USD. Hydration and beautiful color payoff have made this lipstick/lip balm hybrid a purse staple. | FULL REVIEW HERE.
MAC Paint Pots in Groundwork and Constructivist, $21.00 USD each. These just make my life easier. Dab them onto your lids and smooth them out with your fingers and you're done! They also layer wonderfully under powder shadows to boost color and longevity. There's a reason Paint Pots are cult classics!
No lemons this month! Wha-what?! Believe it or not, nothing irked me or under-performed. YAY!
