I haven't done a favorites post since October! Does anyone else feel like writing favorites post is a chore? I do! And I also feel like they are an obligation as a beauty blogger LOL! That's probably why I haven't done one in so long. Honestly, 90% of the time I use the same stuff everyday/every month unless I get something new and that's another reason why I haven't done one.
So since I haven't done one in months, I thought this would be a good time to do one. With that being said, I probably won't do these every month, just randomly when I feel like I have goodies to share ;)
First up is some cheek products. My all time favorite bronzer is Nars Laguna. I finished up the one I had in a blush/bronzer duo and I bought the full size back in December. I've already hit pan on this!! I seriously have been neglecting all of my Bronzers for months because I love this one so much!
Next is two blushes- Physicians Formula Argan Wear Blush and Majolica Majorca Puff de Cheek Blush. I've done reviews for both of these, but I seriously can't stop using them! They both just give you just a beautiful flush of color!
You've all seen the Urban Decay Naked palettes a million times. The original one is my favorite and you can tell mine is well loved. This has been my go to palette for the past few months. I'm going to have a post on my currentl everyday eye look using this soon!
Next up is the L'Oreal Infallibe Pro Spray & Set. I love this setting spray so much! I'm going to do a post comparing it to the UD all nighter spray soon, but this is obviously a spoiler that I love it. Next to it is the Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume. My sweet husband got this for me and it smells like heaven. I've had my eye on this one for a while and if you like vanilla scents, then you would love this one!
Lastly I'm going to share my favorite lip combo! It's the Urban Decay 24/7 lip pencil in Naked with Mac Hug Me on top of it!! I wore this in a recently FOTD post. I never use to be into lip liners but once I tried one from Mac, I was hooked! Hug me was a long time favorite lip stick of mine but these two together is just amazing. I got this lip liner as a free sample when I ordered something from UD so long ago and it's just been sitting in my makeup collection. I'm so glad I'm using it now!
Now that I've wrote novel long descriptions for each item, this concludes my favorites post!! I'm super hyped up on coffee right now, so that is the culprit for my ramblings.
What are your favorites this month?
Also, if you guys have any request for posts please let me know! I'm feeling sort of un creative right now and also feel like I'm slacking a little. Someone inspire me!
Love the lipstick shade and lip liner, also I STILL haven't got any of the naked palettes! I've always wanted to get my hands on that nars bronzer, but I just don't have the money for it. Great list of favorites :) I've been a little uncreative lately too. I have so many blog post ideas but I'm either uninspired to write them, or someone else has recently done a post on it and I don't want to look like a copy cat :/ Maybe a fitness or recipe would be a nice post? Or book review? :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Miriam! Haha I totally feel the same! Sometimes if someone does I post I had an idea for, I just do it anyways haha! Especially if it's one that I've seen tons of people do already!Delete
You would love the naked palettes! They last forever so you wold definitely get more use out of it than the bronzer I think!
I have some fitness posts in mind, and recipe ones too!! and I still need to do that book review for you! I'm thinking I might do a post at the end of each month on what books I read for that month, what do you think?
Yes! I would love that!Delete
hi dear, i love naked palette..i think it so good and i like these colorsReplyDelete
Yes it's a great palette!Delete
Nice favorites list Ashley! I never can decide which Naked Palette I like the best out of all three palettes lol. The perfume sounds like it smells wonderful! I can't wait to buy some more MAC lip liners. I only have one, but they're such good quality! It sounds like you've hit a blogging writing block. I find writing about things in everyday life can make great and interesting topics! Hope this helps!ReplyDelete
Thanks Pilar! I totally understand because all three palettes are great!! I definitely want more Mac lip liners too, but I really want to try the Nyx ones out!! And I do need to write about more everyday things to switch it up, thanks!Delete
You're welcome! I agree I find writing my monthly favorites list a chore as well lol. Sometimes my favorites are similar month to month. I've decided to write three or four monthly favorites during the year and then a yearly favorites in December like I did for 2014. I find that's easier to do lol.Delete
That's a good idea!! Or maybe I'll do seasonal favorites!Delete
OOH I have to try that setting spray I think, since you like it!! I agree that favorites are fun, but a chore, so I never do them haha!ReplyDelete
Haha I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks that! And yes, this setting spray is amazing!! Thanks Margo!Delete
i don't do favorites on my blog, for the same reason you mentioned, i think i'd find it a chore. i do share something i love/dislike on my chat videosReplyDelete
I'm glad I'm not the only one!!Delete
I agree that Favourites Post is a chore, I do find it a pain to write especially because I feel like I have to choose a favourite child. LOL! I skipped January favourites, just didn't have the time to do it.ReplyDelete
I wish my Naked palette looks like yours, mine is barely touch! The pigmentation is crazy and I always look like a drag queen which scares he crap out of my husband or it looks muddy. Can never get it right. Ugh!

I've had my naked palette for 3 or 4 years though so don't worry!!! And I'm sure you don't look like a drag queen! Keep practicing and you'll get better!Delete
Yay monthly favorites! I recently saw that setting spray in a YouTube video, and I'm totally intrigued! We should totally collab soon too, I'm not sure why we haven't already!ReplyDelete
It's such a great setting spray! I would love to do a collab with you!!! Let me know when you want to and I'm totally up for you!Delete
Woah definitely shows how much you love Laguna! I'm almost finished with my D&G bronzer which I'm super proud of, because it's the first pan-product that I will finish :)ReplyDelete
I never really "got" lipliners because I feel like the lipstick will cover all of it, haha. Maybe I'll experiment in the future if I get any lipliner samples :P
Since Valentine's Day is coming up, maybe a post related to that? I have an easy recipe + valentine themed wishlist/gift guide type thing planned!

Haha yes it is satisfying to hit pan on things! But then I feel like I need to slow down on using it haha!!Delete
I never use to use lip liners either but now I'm obsessed with them!!
And I think I will do a Valentine's day look! Thanks for the suggestion, I can't wait to see your post!
That's why I don't do group favorites! It will wear you out! HaHaHa I just focus on one product and talk about that or else you'll feel like you're repeating yourself Ashley. Unless it's something you've added to your collection or haven't reviewed before i wouldn't bother with it. Unless you do a LOOK and then want to show the products you used.ReplyDelete
I do feel like I'm repeating myself when i do favorites Kim! I'm glad That I'm not the only one who feels this way!Delete
You could also do a beauty school feature! Like beauty school lessons or something. I think that would be helpful for people like me. Basics always help. HAHAHAReplyDelete
Thanks for the suggestion Kim! That is a great idea!Delete
