Things I'm Loving

1. Lush Cupcake Mask

Lo and behold, I've finally tested out a Lush face mask. I've been curious about Lush masks for years, but me being me just never made the plunge to finally get one. Well friends, the time has finally come. I've been slathering this on my face for almost two weeks now (it's getting very close to expiring...ah!!!) and I love it. Other than the fact that is smells amazing, just like brownie batter, it makes my skin feel so nice. The mask is meant to calm redness and combat oil. It totally softened my skin and I noticed a huge difference with the oils in my skin. Generally, my t-zone leans more towards the oily side and my makeup tends to need reapplication if I do something during the evening  just from the oils in my skin. But I've noticed a pretty dramatic decrease in the oils from my skin while still retaining moisture!

2. "Shout Out To My Ex" by Little Mix

I've been bopping to this song all week and seriously, it's the greatest. THE GREATEST, I TELL YOU! I did a whole post about #GirlPower earlier this week and I stand by it. This song was the song that started it all and I'm just so excited for Little Mix's new album. Give the song a listen if you want to feel hella empowered or if you just want to dance around to a good tune.




3. WALLS by Kings of Leon

I've been in love with Kings of Leon for what feels like forever. In reality, it's only been since 2008 (thanks to the Jonas Brothers, I believe). I digress, I just adore Kings of Leon's music and their style. It's an unusual blend of rock with a bit of twang with some indie vibes. It's just a whole conglomerate of some juxtaposing sounds that makes Kings of Leon Kings of Leon. Their newest album just came out and it's nothing short of incredible. It's shooting up the charts and for good reason. The Followill group has done it again, curating an album so quintessentially them while continuing to shake it up.

To listen to: "Waste A Moment," "Around the World," "Muchacho," and "WALLS"



4. Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer

I got a sample of this as a 100-point perk at Sephora, but I've been curious about this primer for a while. I will admit, I forget about face primer most of the time. Eyeshadow primer? I'll never forget it. But foundation primer? Eh, I'll let it slide. However, I think I've steered myself wrong because this primer has seriously helped out my makeup game. As I said earlier, I have somewhat oily skin and it's always been a bit of an issue to keep my makeup intact at the end of the day. The combination of the Cupcake mask and this primer have seriously helped out. By the end of the day, my foundation and concealer don't break apart or budge or become overwhelmed by oil. It's incredible. It doesn't leave a weird feeling on my face and sinks into my moisturizer seamlessly.

What have you been loving lately?

  1. I want that Lush mask strictly because it looks like chocolate cupcake batter, and if that's not something that would win me over then I don't know what would.
