Products I Have Been Loving Lately: Vol 9

Hey, lovelies! I hope you are all having a lovely day :) Did any of you catch the season finale of Pretty Little Liars, last night? I am not going to spill details and spoil it for those who haven't had the chance to watch it yet but, what the what?! There were so many twists that I did not see coming. The suspense was too much to bear! I can't wait until the new season starts. I have a feeling it's going to be a really interesting one. Anyways, today I am going to be sharing with you all a few beauty and skincare items that have been in heavy rotation, for the past few weeks. I am going to be featuring some new favorites, as well as some re-discoveries.

Let's get started!


MAC Matchmaster Foundation: I have strayed from this foundation for far too long. Matchmaster is great to use during the warm days. It lasts all day and does a nice job at controlling my oily t-zone area. I don't even find the need to blot, or touch up during the day sometimes, which is great. (review here)

theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer: This is a great contour color. It blends onto my skin effortlessly, and gives me a natural, warm look. (review and swatch here)

NARS Deep Throat Blush: I love the pretty pop of peachy pink color of this blush. It contains a smooth texture that's easy to work with, and the pigmentation is no less than gorgeous. (review and swatch here)


Urban Decay Naked Palette: If you are looking for an eyeshadow palette that contains all the colors you need for a neutral eye, then the Naked palette from Urban Decay is a good one to look into. One can create an endless array of neutral eye looks in no time. The colors are beautifully pigmented, and they blend like a dream. I love how there is a variety of finishes-shimmers, mattes, and satins. My favorite shadows from the palette are sidecar, sin, half baked, naked, and darkhorse. (review and swatches here)

Tarte gifted Amazonian Clay Smart Mascara: Since I first obtained this mascara, I have not been able to put it down. It has become a staple that I can't be without. It pretty much does it all-lengthen, curl, define, and volumize. It lasts all day, and doesn't smudge or flake on me. (review and demo here)


Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Shine in Smitten: The soft pink coloring of this lip pencil is very flattering on, and the texture feels amazing on the lips. The lasting power isn't the best but, the smooth consistency and ease of wear definitely make up for it. (review and swatch here)

MAC Cut A Caper Lipstick: Cut A Caper was released with MAC's Heavenly Creature collection last month. This has been my most-reached for lipstick this summer. It goes with any look, and it's just a great, overall lip color to sport. (review and swatch here)


Sally Hansen Continuous Treatment Strength: It wasn't too long ago that I started using this nail treatment. But I am already seeing results when it comes to the strength and hardening of my weak, and fragile nails. I will talk about this product in more detail, after I have used it a little longer.

Spoiled by Wet n' Wild Nail Color in Breakfast In Red: This vivid red is a stunner. It's a bright shade that adds a fun pop of color to my nails. The creamy formula is a pleasure to work with, and the shiny, glossy finish is an added bonus. (review and swatch here)

Essie South Of The Hi' Way: When I want my nails to have a more natural look to them, this soft pink does the trick. I will showcase how this color looks on my nails soon, in a separate post, so be on the lookout for that.


Tarte 100% Pure Maracuja Oil Rollerball: I apply this oil on the areas of my face that are prone to dryness like my cheeks, and my under eye area. It's a real treat to use and I love how the maracuja oil quickly absorbs into my skin. (review here) 

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter: I have dry, stubborn elbows and this body butter has been doing wonders at moisturizing and hydrating them. I have seen a massive improvement in the texture of my elbows, since using this product. The skin on my elbows feel so much smoother, and they look healthier too! (review here)
