Five Favorites Friday!

  Today I am collaborating with a few bloggers. We are all doing a link party, and the button to this party is on the sidebar. Click it if you want to see what my friends posted!

Here are my current favorites!

These are all my favorites together. These are the things that I can't live without lately, or newly discovered Holy Grail items.

1. REVLON COLORSTAY FOUNDATION IN COMBO/OILY This stuff is awesome. It has amazing coverage, it stays put, BUT it can look a bit cakey if you don't moisturize enough. I find that if it's looking a bit cakey, I can take a dab of my moisturizer and smooth it into that spot. It will soften and make it look more like skin instantly. You could also achieve this by mixing it with your moisturizer to begin with, but I always forget that step!

2. COVERGIRL CLUMP CRUSHER For ages, my holy grail mascara was Maybelline Lash Discovery. But I have to say that this one does the same thing, but it DOES. NOT. CLUMP. At all. It is great, and it lives up to every bit of hype I've ever heard about it. It is my new love, and I will be repurchasing it. Sorry, Lash Discovery!

3. Nyx Automatic Brow Pencil in Dark Brown A friend sent me this because it was the wrong color for her, but it works perfectly with my now brown hair. It has red undertones, and so does my hair color! It's a great match, and it's the kind of pencil that goes on lightly. It's still smooth, but it's less pigmented so you don't end up looking like Groucho Marx once your'e done filling in. The brush is hand, and comes off for easy cleaning!

4. NARS BLUSH (MINI SIZE) IN ORGASM Another friend sent this to me for my birthday as it didn't show up on her darker skin tone. Can I just say that this is the best blush I've ever owned? I would never have bought it because of the price tag, but I'm so glad I got the chance to try it! It's beautiful, and my favorite blush. I wear it 8 out of 10 times.

5. COASTAL SCENTS 252 ULTIMATE PALETTE Can I just...? I don't even know what to say. This palette is PHENOMENAL. It's been a lust list item for me for ages, and a dear friend gifted it to me for my birthday. See that nick in the blue shade? I accidentally jammed my fingernail in there. SO FREAKING GRACEFUL. I AM LIKE A PUDGY BALLERINA. 

Another layer. I love everything about this palette.

Probably my favorite layer. Seriously, if you don't have this palette, you need to get it. The best thing about it is that each shade is a mini of Coastal Scent's Hot Pots. If you run out of one, you can order it again!!

I hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you'd like to see more posts about my favorites! Don't forget to check out the other blogs doing posts like this. Have a great weekend! See you in the next one.
