Who else is ready to recover from the Favourites Friday hiatus?
After spending much too much time not doing a Favourites Friday, I have a big list of favourites that I’m just waiting to share with you! It’s been a crazy few weeks (Christmas, New Years, winter break, the blog turning five, etc.) and I’m ready to get back into the normal swing of things. And by normal, I mean the enthusiastic!
This week’s favourites are all the products that I have sampled/tried/purchased/etc. since the last Favourites Friday that I am just flipping out over! And I have every right to because December was my month of discovering amazing things! Hopefully you’ll find them as amazing as I did.
Post-Winter Product Posse: A Favourites Friday
Okay, I know I talk about curling irons a lot, but this thing is the queen of curling. While it took me forever to get used to a non-springloaded curling iron, now that I am it’s all I want to use. This curling iron produces gorgeous curls that are evenly heated and because of the size of the curling iron creates a naturally pretty look that any girl can pull off. I was already obsessed with curling my hair, but this curling iron makes doing my hair my favourite part of the day.
Now, I was never much of a lipstick girl, but winter break opened me up to always wearing a lip colour. And this lipstick, with it’s gorgeous vampy red, is the perfect colour for any season. It’s matte, which always looks fabulous, and stays on for hours. I wore it for New Years, applied it at 6:30 and it didn’t wear off until 1am after eating and drinking and laughing. Can we talk about perfect? It’s also lightweight and doesn’t smear, so I’m completely in love.
I have owned so many pairs of leggings by Danskin that I honestly can say I never though I’d fall in love with leggings I bought at Wal-Mart. Danskin makes the best leggings I have ever owned. They’re perfect for 10am yoga class and running every errand imaginable. I am in love with them. I bought a new pair over break and it proved to me that, yes, I will continue wearing them since every single pair (I’ve had 4 now of different styles) has fit wonderfully and kept nice over the years. Get your pair of my favourite here for $28.
I discovered my secret to looking dewy and alert when going to class. And it doesn’t involve copious amounts of creme blush. This highlighting cream, which has a beautiful rose gold colour, is a lifesaver. It’s lightweight (which is my dealbreaker when it comes to makeup) and super easy to apply. Because I am a beauty amateur, and I apply makeup at 6am, I squeeze a little dab onto my finger and press light dots into my cheeks from beside my nose to my temple. I blend it in with a brush and VOILA! I look awake and pretty and don’t look like I pulled an allnighter reading all my syllabi.
After staying away from dark lip colour my entire life, I am now a believer of the darker the better. This beautiful, dark, creamy lip mousse is the most gorgeous purple lip colour you will ever need. I have worn it out shopping with my mom, taking photos in front of the Christmas tree, Christmas dinner, etc. It is lovely and lasts a lot better than I thought it would. Try not to eat (as it has a bright pink wear off shade) but if you’re not eating it stays perfectly!
