What I'm reaching for the most right now....

I've seen a lot of bloggers posting about their most used and/or favorites for the month.....and I always find it interesting to see what others are loving at the moment!!!  So, I thought I would post about my favorites and what I'm reaching for the most right now.  :)  I hope you guys find this interesting and not terribly boring haha....

First, I'll start with hair care.  Right now, I'm loving Morrocan Oil Curl Control Cream.  This stuff is amazing!  I have naturally wavy/curly hair and I've most recently been trying to use less heat styling....mainly because it takes wayyy less time!  I love my hair straight...but man...I have some thick hair!  Blow drying already takes forever, then when I have to flat iron it...ughhh it adds a good 45 mins to my routine.  So, I've been letting my hair air dry and letting my natural waves and curls go.  The bottle says to apply a generous amount.  Honestly, I'm really not sure what one would consider a "generous" amount I use about 2-3 pumps, work it through my hair with my fingers and then comb it through my hair with a wide tooth comb.  I know I shouldn't comb my curly hair, but I do anyway because I like to stretch some of my curls out...I like it more wavy than curly and it is curlier in some spots.  Then I just let my hair air dry.  This controls my frizz and curls and my hair is soo doesn't even feel like there's any product in it!!  It also doesn't weigh my hair down...anddd it smells wonderful!!!  The bottle is 8.5 0z and I paid $30 for it.  LOVE it.

Now, on to makeup!!  =D

I won't list all the shadows but I've been on a teal, green or blue kick paired with browns and bronzes. (Don't worry purples...I still love you!!  haha)
Nivea lip care in a kiss of milk and honey
I've been wearing nude polish the most and I'm really liking Quick Sand by Sally Hansen. 

The products that I should have passed on were:
UD De-slick makeup setting spray-it doesn't make a bit of difference for me
TooFaced Primed and Poreless makeup primer-I hate this stuff!  I've used it twice and had to wash and reapply with my usual primer (Hourglass Veil Mineral primer) BOTH times.  It actually turns my foundation a different color too!
Revlon Colorstay Overtime peels and flakes and just feels plain gross
Revlon Colorstay lipliner in Natural-didn't like the formula or the color at all
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara in Carbon Black-It's so messy...I wanted to LOVE this mascara
L'Oreal Telescopic Explosion Mascara-I don't know why I bought this haha...I thought maybe it would be good for my bottom lashes or something...I hate the brush and I should've known better lol
Smashbox HD concealer-I even returned this...enough said
Boots no7 Expert Oil Control Lotion-it sounded good and it was on sale but it was an impulse buy!!  It definitely isn't suited for my skin type-it broke my face out. 
Sally Hansen Nail Polish Strips

Are any of my favorites on your list?  What are your favorites these days?  :)  Inquiring minds want to know hahaha.... 


  1. GREAT post!! I was definitely interested. I also looove Nivea milk & honey, its my "emergency" lip balm lol. The Telescopic mascara has a kinda similar brush to Givenchy Phenomen'eyes, which is like $30! Good to know about all these!

  2. Yay, I'm glad you liked it Amalia! Yeah, I was looking at the Givenchy last time that I was in Sephora and I'm glad I didn't get it!! I mean, I'm sure the mascara is amazing, but I can't do that brush haha.

  3. luv this post! I luv argon oil and argon anything for my makes my hair so soft and it feels amazing! I luv all things on ur like list too, I would luv to try nar super orgasim lipgloss though, might look good with rimmel crush..hmmm..idk :P thanks for the dislike list too..very helpful

  4. Awesome post! I don't have any favorites right now but I'm very interested in some of your faves...pigments and blushes!

  5. You and Jess make me so jealous with that Rimmel Crush lipstick. I got it and it looks like death on me rofl! The UD sprays didn't do much for me either... and L'Oreal Voluminous is a clumpy mess lol! Love this post.

  6. Love this post!! I'm def going to try the morrocan oil curl control, I spend way to much time straightening my hair..For mascara I use covergirl's pro super thick lash and lash blast volume these 2 are my all time faves!!

  7. Nice stuff! I have so few things (3 to be exact) that you're loving that it makes me feel like I need to go and buy everything you love!!

  8. @Jess: I LOVE super orgasm over crush!!! It looks really good....I'll try to wear it in my next pic
    @Meme: Thanks!!
    @Cydonian: Aww boo, I'm sorry the rimmel crush didn't work for you...and it's good to see someone else didn't like the Voluminous, that means I'm not alone haha...
    @Bailey: Let me know what you think of it!! I've never tried the pro super thick lash...hmmm I must try it!
    @Starryskies: lol...I know how you feel...I want every shadow you bought from Inglot!! ;)
