Products I'm Loving

First off, the Real Techniques buffing brush. This brush is talked about so much, and now I know why - it's phenomenal. When I first used this to apply my NARS sheer glow foundation, I was blown away by how much of a difference this brush made. It blended in the foundation in seconds and gave an airbrush finish unlike any technique I've used before. It also washes really easily and doesn't shed! Really impressed and can't wait to try it with other foundations. 
Keeping in line with tools, I've been loving this new way of using my Clarisonic, that was first introduced to me by lilladylife. Pop out the outer ring of bristles and just use the center set for precise deep cleansing especially around the nose area. So simple, but it works dramatically! 
On my eyes I've been using MAC's blacktrack fluid line. I'm probably the last one on the bandwagon for this, but it's been working great for me. Creamy, black, and lasts all day. 
I've also discovered that Diorshow is my new favorite mascara. I've been a L'oreal Voluminous girl for a while, and didn't think that expensive mascaras were worth the money. This Dior one, however, curls my lashes like no other and really volumizes each lash without clumping. I'm obsessed with this mascara, and I really want to check out Dior's other lash offerings. 
I got this Caudalie s.o.s thirst quenching serum in a 500 point perk Caudalie set from Sephora. I've now used it up, and I am dying to get the full size. You put this on before your moisturizer - it's a light, milky serum - and it makes my skin glow. It feels and smells beautiful, makes the skin look plump and healthy, and seems to help my moisturizer sink in. My skin is so dry right now from the wind and cold, and this helps give that extra hydration that my skin is craving. 
My first and only Butter London nail polish in disco biscuit. This is a beautiful jelly magenta color with purple-y blue iridescent particles. So captivating and really a unique color. It is suprisingly dull on its own, but it really comes to life with a top coat. 
And finally, a fragrance! This is one of my oldest and most loved perfumes, Ferragamo Incanto Charms. It is fruity and sweet, but never overpowering and lingers all day. It's just delicious. Not really a fall/winter scent, but I rediscovered it on my dresser with just a few drops left, and I was reminded of how much I love this! 

Happy reading! 



  1. I just started using a sample of the Caudalie serum (same size as yours!) because my skin is SO thirsty! I've been hearing a lot of raves about it lately and it seems to be out of stock at Sephora so I hope it's not being discontinued!

  2. Caudalie has amazing skin products. I also loved the vinoperfect daily perfecting fluid, especially for diluting your foundation with.

  3. I'm really thinking about putting the Clarasonic on my xmas wishlist! x

  4. YAY so glad you are enjoying the clarasonic the new one, and Ferregamo makes some of my favorites! i love the dreams version! must try charm next summer!

  5. I am also loving blacktrack fluidline as well! That perfume sounds really nice, the bottle is beautiful as well!

  6. I find that SOS serum is great to save your skin when flying long haul!

  7. Seriously, I want to buy everything you blog about- that Caudalie serum looks delish.
