I've got it all today, and I hope this makes up for the past few weeks! As I mentioned yesterday, Dan and I finally got our offer accepted on a house, so the past few weeks have been really hectic. Now that all of our applications and inspections are done, it should (hopefully) be smooth sailing from here! Wish us luck, and now let's get to the favorites!
Empty ProductsIn the past, I've dedicated entire blog posts to reviews on empty products (you can see them here). I know that some of you don't like beauty-focused posts, so instead of completely nixing these reviews, I wanted to incorporate them into my favorites!
I'm going through lots of products now that I'm on a spending freeze, so I thought it would be (hopefully) interesting and helpful to review my empty products each week. Today is going to be a bigger set since these are all products that I was waiting to write a whole post about, but in the future I might only have 2 or 3 products a week.
Laneige BB Cushion: I kept this at work for an easy way to touch up throughout the day. BB Cushions are really popular so I'm excited to try a new brand next since this one is a bit expensive.
IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush: such a great product. Super hydrating and a pretty rosy color that stains your lips.
Loreal Infallible Makeup Extender: my favorite setting spray. I use this every day as a last step for my makeup routine!
EOS Lip Balm: I've been hearing a lot of horror stories about EOS but luckily I've never had an issue!
Bite Beauty Lipstick: by far my favorite lipstick brand. Beautiful colors, really creamy and lasts for eva.
PIXI Endless Silky Eye Pen: I used this to tightline my eyes and it worked great!
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer: this is a great concealer, but is similar to Maybelline Fit Me concealer for a fraction of the price, so I won't repurchase this in the future.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: love this formula for intense lashes, but hate the name.
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner: my favorite liner! Beginner friendly and makes a perfect line and wing.
Olly Biotin Vitamins: these tasted great, but I couldn't tell any difference in my hair, skin or nails. I found that Biotin Bursts worked a lot better and were also delicious!
Coconut Oil: I use coconut oil for everything- makeup remover, moisturizer, shaving cream, cooking oil, and even give some to Selma! This one comes in a huge container and is really inexpensive.
John Frieda 7 Day Volume: absolutely love this product. Makes my hair smell and look great.
EOS Lotion: decent lotion and I love the design. Perfect for throwing in your purse.
Trader Joes Shave Cream: I loved the formula, but hated the scent.
Glam Glow Mask: pro tip: order this mask on Amazon. It's a lot cheaper! This mask is absolutely incredible and makes my skin look perfect. Not sure what magic is in here, but I love it.
Prada Candy Perfume: my favorite perfume! If you're looking for a sweet, feminine scent this is the one.
Caress Love Forever Body Wash: this is seriously the best body wash I've ever used. The scent is amazing and lingers on your body all day long!
American Idol - I'm still completely in love with Dalton and La'Porsha. I'm so glad that they're both getting such good feedback and seem to be everyone's choice for front runners! I'm also loving MacKenzie and Trent. My favorite thing in a performer is when they take a well-known song and make it their own. I feel like these four do that better than any other people on the show, so I'm always excited to see what they'll do next!
HTGAWM - I'm finally caught up, and I'm loving this season. It has a different feel to me (particularly the first episode had a different style from the previous seasons). It'll be interesting to see all of the story lines develop- particularly the big cliffhanger after last week's episode!!
Fuller House - I really want to like the remake of one of my favorite shows, but I don't. I will say that I didn't like the first episode and it's starting to get a bit better (thanks to all the guest stars and a story line emerging). I'm not sure if it's because it's over-the-top cheesy, or all the screams anytime one of the original stars enters the scene, but it feels more like this should have been a reunion special than an entire series! Plus, it was just announced that Netflix is buying another season- maybe the Olsens will join the party! Either way, I'm still planning on finishing the series even though I'm not a huge fan.
The Bachelor - I don't want to give any spoilers, but what a crazy episode! I feel like all three girls are going to be really hurt when they watch this episode. It'll be interesting to see what happens next week with the final two and if anything changes at the finals. Could we potentially have another Mesnick-switcharoo ending?!
Top Chef - Does anyone else watch this show? I've always loved cooking competitions and Top Chef might be my favorite of them. I'm really liking this season and there are so many chefs that I enjoy so far. My favorites were Kwame and Karen, so I'm a little sad that they're both gone. Now I'm rooting for Jeremy and Isaac!
