Recent Beauty Favorites

Is there anything more pleasurable than stalking someone else's favorite beauty products? Probably not... Early last week I was more doom and gloom when I shared some disappointing beauty products, but today it's allllllll about the good stuff! Let's just dive on in!

L'Occitane Shower Oil || Hikari Blush in Tango || Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink || Besame Brightening Violet Powder || MAC Paint Pot in Let's Skate || IT Cosmetics CC+

L'Occitane shower oil review

L'Occitane Shower Oil || Oh. My. Gosh. This is literally the best thing to enter my shower since this hair masque. It comes out of the bottle as an oil but lathers right up! It smells fantastic and leaves my skin so hydrated! (Because...who has time for lotion?!) I've been really enjoying this stuff as a "shaving cream" as well. You need it in your shower. Trust me!

hikari blush review

Hikari Blush in Tango || I actually received this full sized blush in an ipsy glam bag recently. Never one to turn away from a new blush, I gave this one a shot...holy pigmentation! Literally, one dip into the product and bam! Packs. A. Punch. I think this coral-y pink is great for spring and summer.

milani baked blush review

Milani Baked Blush in Dolce Pink || Another blush. I know, you're shocked. So, this one has easily become my most reached for blush. It is a bronze-y, pink-y, coral with a decent shimmer to it. On my skin tone, I don't really need a bronzer when I wear this blush. It's quick, easy, multifunctional and affordable. Yes, yes and yes! I will be grabbing more shades from Milani's Baked Blush line for sure!

besame brightening violet powder review

Besame Brightening Violet Powder || When I purchased this powder from Sephora, I was kind of just experimenting. I had recently tried this under eye setting powder from Target and was really pleased, so naturally I wanted to see what else was out there. (I'm not the only one who has trouble adhering to the "if it ain't broke" philosophy when it comes to beauty products, right?) Because this powder is a violet color, it really has a nice subtle brightening effect when used under the eyes. It smells nice, feels really luxurious and keeps my under eye concealer from creasing and looking cakey! The price really isn't terrible either...

mac paint pot "lets skate"

MAC Paint Pot in Let's Skate || Hello! Late to the game on the whole MAC paint pot thing. This is actually my very first one. I know the big cult favorite is "painterly" but every time I swatched it in the store it seemed just too dark for my lids. Instead, I opted for this sparkly pink shade that I can just swipe over my lids and call it good. I love that once this is dry, it isn't moving and it adds a nice little something to the lid while requiring zero effort. Lazy eye makeup for the win!

it cosmetics cc cream review

IT Cosmetics CC+ || Dare I say that this CC cream beats out my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer?! Yes, yes I do! This feels just as lightweight but offers way more coverage. In fact, most of the time I don't really feel the need to use concealer (but I do anyway because newborn..) I also really appreciate the high SPF. I always choose face products that have SPF, and especially love seeing a number like 50!! Huge brownie points for IT Cosmetics in my book. 
What beauty products have you been loving lately?

Happy Monday! I hope you had a fantastic Mother's Day weekend with your loved ones. :)
