August Favorites!

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with another video and this one is a first! I'm finally doing a monthly favorites video. I've got a nice range of products to show you and there are actually a lot of affordable options. I don't do too much hauling these days but these products are definitely worth mentioning.

Check out the video!



For those who can't watch the video, I actually remembered to take pictures this time, he he.

Couleur Caramel Liquid Foundation - I love the light/medium buildable coverage and it's a perfect color match!  Review to come soon.

MAC Cheek & Cheerful Mineralized Blush - This looks just alright in the pan but on the face it offers a gorgeous glow!  I usually pair it with a blush and just pop it on the cheekbones.  It's not overly shimmery which is also why I love it. Unfortunately it's limited edition :(
Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Foundation in Medium Dark - This foundation is an oldie but goodie.  I've featured it in the past but recently fell in love with it again.  You can literally do your foundation in 1 minute.  I love how it's pressed (I usually stay away from loose mineral makeup because it's messy) and has SPF.
Revlon Precision Lash Glue (I got mine from CVS) - This is my Go To Lash Adhesive.  It's clear but doesn't dry shiny and the brush makes application a breeze.  I also use the brush to put a bit of glue over my lashline and it makes lash application easier and more secure.
Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara - I love the large brush and the formula builds but isn't clumpy.  I picked this up at the New York Makeup Show in a Set.  I usually don't spend too much on mascaras but I really like this one.
Qosmedix Synthetic Naturally Full Lashes - Gives natural volume and feels so light on!  Even though it's synthetic it doesn't look shiny.  You can buy them by the case - $30 for 20 lashes, not bad at all!

Milani Brow Fix Kit in Light (I purchased mine at Target) - I'm loving this super cute little brow kit.  The shadows are a great color for my brows and I think they work better than the regular MAC brown eyeshadows I was using before.  The formula is finely milled and offers good opaque, coverage.   It's such a great deal and works great.
Z Palettes (I got mine from www.devucosmetics.com) - I've gone depotting crazy in the last week, especially over face products in my personal collection.  I love that I'm using more and more products now that I can put them in one palette.

Sedona Lace Vortex Brush Collection- Of course these brushes had to make my favorites!  I literally picked my favorite kinds of brushes and designed them into the Vortex Collection.  Let me know if you guys have tried them yet!  I'm open to feedback and i'm actually even working on an updated version as we speak!
Let me know if any of you have tried any of these products in the comments below, I absolutely love them!  Do you guys like these favorites videos?  Let me know as well and I'll keep doing them!

You're so lucky! You have the Stila/Barbie palette!

Did my little eye spy correctly?

Is there a plan to sell your brushes separately/not in the set? I'm very interested in trying face brushes, but I already own too many eye brushes, and I don't even use eye shadows nowadays.:/

Hi Ren :)

Do you have any tips on how to de-pot eyeshadows successfully? I find that when I de-pot, I always make a mess and shatter at least 1 out of 2 eyeshadows :(

Thanks!! :D

I can't wait to order those lashes! I use Revlon the adhesive for strips along with DUO clear adhesive for the extra hold on strips! LOVE IT!
