monthly favorites.

   Z Gallerie Hudson Jewelry Box  My Dad gave me this for Christmas and it's so special to me.  I will definitely hold onto this for the rest of my life. 

 ♥ Tarte LipSurgence Natural Matte Lip Tint in color Exposed.  This is the ULTIMATE nude lip!! It tingles a bit upon application and helps with plumping the lips as well.  

♥ Bumble and Bumble BB. Shine On (And On...) Finishing Spray.  This is excellent for frizzies and flyaway control.  And, of course, it gives fantastic shine!

♥ C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries "My Favorite Lip Balm" 100% Natural Shea Butter.  I got this for Christmas from my Mother-In-Law & Father-In-Law and cannot get enough of this stuff.  It's wonderful in the winter (or in Texas with all of these crazy weather changes, leading to chapped lips.)  I apply this in the morning and before bed every day.

♥ YSL #13 "Le Orange" & YSL #24 "Praline Delight."  These are my two favorite lipsticks of the month.  Le Orange is perfect for a big pop of color, while Praline Delight is another great nude.  In comparison to the Tarte nude lip mentioned above, this one has a much creamier texture (yet a lot more pricey, naturally ha!) 

♥ Benefit Hoola Bronzer. Sorry, this one is a tad dirty as it has been in my makeup bag for quite some time.  I'm really getting into contouring and have trouble finding the right bronzer with my light complexion.  I'm a ghost.  I have found Hoola to be the best color for my complexion. You don't have to worry about applying with a light hand.

♥ Nars "Oasis" Blush.  This picture will NOT do this blush justice.  You have to see this one in person and actually apply it to get the real effect.  It's absolutely gorgeous and comes across very natural. Although this one does have sparkles, it's not nearly as "dewy" or "shiny" as the Nars "Orgasm" blush.  I cannot decide which look I love more and tend to switch back and forth between these two, depending on the day or what I'm wearing.

What products are you loving right now?

Have a wonderful day!

do you have any photos of you in the tarte matte exposed lipstain? I was googling to see pictures of it on and your blog came up (i'm glad it did!) - it'd be awesome to see before and after if you have any handy :)
