I have the most boring beauty favorites ever for you this month! Just a few things, but things I’m reeeeally loving. Seriously.

One of the reasons things are so boring is because I’m using and adoring every single thing in my favorites post from last month. Every single thing!

Next month, I’ll probably have some great travel faves because I’ll be traveling for my book tour and also wearing more makeup.

MY OTHER RECIPES

So okay, onto this month!

Benefit Gimme Brow. OMG OMG OMG, thank god it is BACK! I tried everything under the sun that you guys told me to try. All the products that were similar. NOTHING worked like the Gimme Brow. The Essence brow came very close – I agree with you. Super close. But just not close enough for me to switch. The Essence formula was inconsistent in quality and would go on patchy. The brown shade was also just… different. I don’t know how else to explain it, but it was an odd shade. It applied so inconsistently that I couldn’t ever love it 100%. As soon as I saw that Gimme Brow was back, I bought five of them like a complete psycho.

Le Volume de Chanel Mascara. Um, OMG. I absolutely love this. I bought this when Nordstrom did one of their buy 2, get 1 free mascara promos because I’d heard great things about it. I don’t have much other Chanel makeup and rarely even find something I’m interested in. I ran out of my Stila Huge Lash and had this on hand – fell in love almost the instant I opened it. It’s AMAZING! I usually prefer lengthening mascaras but I find that this one does length and volume perfectly. It’s great. And remember back in the day when I first started my beauty posts and was in love with the YSL color mascaras? They have them in this too. And I want them!

RMS Buriti Bronzer. I am officially obsessed with all things RMS. I am still only using the luminizer and when I saw this, I knew I had to try it. I LOVE it. It is so super natural and works great even on my very pale, cool-toned skin (where most bronzers tend to look orange). I love cream or gel products since I have dry skin, and this is just awesome. It does require a bit more work than a powdered bronzer, but that’s probably just a learning curve for me right now.

Dr Jart Premium BB Balm. This is something I’ve raved about for years, but used to only wear in the summer. I brought it out because I’ve wanted a little more coverage for book events and just don’t want foundation. I’ve already gone through an entire one and just ordered a new one. Sometimes I wear it alone, sometimes I mix it with the Complexion Rescue (which is my daily go-to) and I think the color and formula is wonderful.

Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom Cologne. I know I talk about this often but it’s the scent I can’t stop wearing right now. I find that it’s perfect for this time of year – still sort of warm with a slight hint of floral. I absolutely LOVE this scent!

Redken Hot Sets 22 Heat Protectant Spray. Yes, I realize that I talk about a new hair product like this every few months. It’s because I usually buy whatever my stylist is loving at the moment. And he used this on my hair while I was there… and it’s awesome. First, I got like 6ish inches of my hair chopped off. I’ve been using a curling wand more often (when my hair was super long, a wand wasn’t holding the curl) and spray this on it before. It holds the curl SO well. And it’s not crispy or crunchy. It might get a little crunchy if you spray too much, but you can easily brush is out. I’m obsessed. I like this a little better than the Memory Mist that I have been using!

There it is… concise, a little boring, and all things I’m adoring.  I can’t wait to hear what you’re loving this month! I have my eye on a Tom Ford perfume (Neroli Portofino! – but do I have to get the expensive one or can I get the auqua version!?) and also just got this Jet Lag mask to try!

Also guys! I bit the bullet and finally got lash boost. Because I am thisclose to getting lash extensions even though I saw that all the time. I figured I would try it and see! Just came today soooo… next month we will know! Eeeek.
