Products I'm Using Now

Sorry I haven't posted in a while - I'm actually overwhelmed with all I want to post! Work's been insanely busy and I feel like when I'm not working I'm sleeping, and on my days off I'm shopping! ha ha  Anyways, I saw this on a few blogs I read, and I did this about a year ago, but I thought it'd be fun to do it again.  I'm sure a lot has changed! I also added a few categories of my own...


Fekkai Essential Shea

Fekkai Essential Shea

Styling products:
Fekkai Smooth Hair Cream (before drying), Aveda Volumizing Tonic (before drying), Elnett or Got2B 2Sexy (hate the name!!) hairspray

Hair mask:
None - the conditioner does its job well enough




Shower gel:
 Not a gel, but I'm obsessed w/Bliss Super Minty Soap 'n Scrub! 

Body moisturiser:
C.O. Bigelow Mentha body lotion, Carmex Healing Lotion

 Secret Va Va Vanilla (been using Secret as long as I can remember)

Fake tan:
 None - I hate tanning products! Embrace the pale! :)

Fragrance (I added this one!):
Miss Dior Cherie, Laura Mercier Vanilla Gourmande, D&G The One



 Body Shop Cucumber Cleansing Milk, Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash (gentle enough to use daily)

C.O. Bigelow Rice & Bamboo, Origins Modern Friction 

Eye makeup remover:
 Ponds cold cream, Boots Soothing Eye Makeup Remover 

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion (I HATED this back in the day, but I gave it another shot.... and now I really like it!)

Night Cream:
Clinique Youth Surge Night or Origins A Perfect World

Fresh's Umbrian Clay treatment bar 

**also using Origins Brighter by Nature peel twice a week



Moisturizer is my primer! Most primers contain silicone, which breaks my skin out something awful, so I try to avoid them!

 YSL Perfect Touch (#5), Clinique Redness Solutions (Calming Fair), NARS Sheer Glow (Mont Blanc)

Foundation brush:
Mostly been using fingers, but Sephora's Platinum Air Brush #55 is the only brush I use for foundation. 

YSL Touche Eclat (under eyes), MAC Studio Finish Concealer (for blemishes)

 MAC MSF Natural Medium (for all-over) or MAC Blot Powder (t-zone)

Nars Douceur


Dior Amber Diamond

Eyeshadow base:
Urban Decay Sin or Eden

I pretty much use different ones every day! Been using the Wet 'n Wild Vanity palette and UD Naked palette a lot, though

MAC On the Hunt Superslick liner, MUFE Aqua Eyes 18L or UD 24/7 Lucky on the waterline

Eyelash curler:
I don't use an eyelash curler. The best mascaras curl my lashes anyways - and I hate extra steps! 

Eyelash base:
None. I've tried a few, but I don't think they make a big enough difference for me.

Eyebrow product:
MAC Lingering brow pencil (I've repurchased 2x!)

 Lancome Hypnose Drama (my absolute favorite - this hasn't changed in over a year!)

YSL Rouge Pur Couture #6, NARS Little Darling, MAC The Faerie Glen

 None currently - I like lipgloss but the lipsticks I'm loving right now look best on their own :)

Nail colour:
 I was going to do my fingernails with OPI Tease-y Does It, but my cap/brush are defective! The brush isn't properly attached to the cap, and it falls off! However, I decided on Urban Outfitters Red 1 instead, with Sephora by OPI Only Gold for Me top coat on the ring fingers.  China Glaze Swing Baby on the toes. :)

I'd love for other bloggers (or non-bloggers!) to share what you're using, too! I always like to read things like this. :)

Like I said, I have so much to post - more hauling, swatches, favorites, etc! Stay tuned, I'll be back before you know it. :)

Thanks for reading!

  1. I don't know why, but I normally don't read these posts on blogs but I loved reading yours! I could comment on everything but I won't because that could be misconstrued as being creepy, lol. I will say that I just got Douceur and I. Love. It. Also, I had no idea you don't use an eyelash curler! I'm addicted to my Shu Uemura one! Also also, I just got my first UO nail polish today (it's an army/khaki green one, I think Green 12?) and it's a lot nicer than I expected it to be! Alrighty, now I'm done :)

  2. Yay I'm so happy you got Douceur! :D I think if I had a Shu Uemura curler I'd probably use it (I've wanted to try it for a long time!), but I always pass it up for something else more "fun." I saw your tweet about the UO polish as I was painting my nails - weird! I have a couple and they're pretty good quality. I just kind of forget about them most of the time!

  3. I love reading these types of posts! I can't wait to get Miss Dior Cherie - its on my christmas list :) xx
