Year Round Favorites

Yearly Faves

I get a lot of questions about what my favorite beauty products are so I decided to put together a few blog posts showing my top favorite items. Of course being one of the beauty obsessed, I cannot add all of my favorites to just one list. That would end up being a small book and let’s face it, you don’t want to sit down and read this post for an entire week. With all that being said, I will be doing a “favorites” post for Year Round Favorites, Top 10 Lipsticks, Current Hair Care Products, & Current Skincare Products & Routine. Today’s post is…….drum roll please………. Year Round Favorites!
I really wasn’t sure what to name this post since the items I have included are my Holy Grail items that I have been using for at least 5 years now. These items are all items that I use on a regular basis and back 100%.

My first review for 2015! What better way to start than with some bold vibrant lipsticks from NYX Cosmetics? This review is for the four colors that you see pictured since they are the only four that I have bought and used.

With 36 different shades to choose from all at around the price of $5.99 each these lipsticks are by far my favorite in the lipstick world. They are creamy, nondrying, super pigmented, smell delicious (kinda like MAC cosmetics lippies), affordable, the list goes on and on. They don’t state that they are long wearing, but they really do have good staying power. I do have to reapply a couple of times throughout the day but, IMO, that is a small price

Sigma Pigment Swatches ~ Gilded & Ambrosia

  Sigma Pigment Swatches

Keeping it short and sweet. I just wanted put up swatches of the two newest pigments in my collection by Sigma Cosmetics. I haven’t had a chance to actually use them but, while swatching, they seemed a tad chunky and hard to blend. After working them onto my arm, they did turned out very pretty and metallic both wet and dry. Cannot wait to use them and see how long they wear. I will update this post with more thoughts later on down the road.
