January Beauty Favorites | What I Am Currently Loving | Lorac Mega Pro 3  Laura Mercier Transcluent Setting Powder  Essence Lash Princess Mascara  Too Faced Love Flush Blush in 'Baby Love'  Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer
It has been a hot minute since I've shared my monthly beauty favorites! I've been slacking on blogging recently because life tends to get in the way. Even though January isn't quite over yet, I wanted to share my beauty favorites from this month/what I have been using recently.

I have to apologize in advance, because my first favorite, the Lorac Mega Pro 3, is sold out. I did a review on this a while back and I am still loving it! I love the formula and the shades, it's perfect to create any look. If you can't find this anywhere, I recommend trying their regular pro palettes (I have a review on the third palette here). Lorac makes the most beautiful eyeshadows, they are seriously my favorite brand for eyeshadow palette and shadows. 

My next favorite has become my holy grail powder! I have been wanting to try the Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder for the longest time, but I was skeptical because of the large hype. I wanted to make sure it was something I would love, and it is! I did a post on how I love to use this, and this is the perfect powder for oily skin- for setting and baking. If you have dry skin this might be too mattifying for you, but if you use a small amount, it will look flawless. 

My next favorite has become my go-to mascara, and it is the Essence Lash Princess Mascara. There has been so much hype around this, and for $3 (!!!) I gave it a shot! I love how this makes my lashes look in terms of volume and length. However, I do find this can get clumpy so you have to be careful. But besides for that, I find that it doesn't flake so much during the day, and it can really hold a curl. 

The next item, is the Too Faced Love Flush Blush in 'Baby Love'. I have been loving this as my go-to-everyday-easy-natural-blush (wow, that's a mouthful). For my fair complexion, it's the perfect pink nude that will look natural on the cheeks, and pair with any look. I love how this has the perfect amount of pigmentation, and it stays beautiful throughout the day. 

My last favorite recently is the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer. This primer is super unique, and unlike anything else I own. I find that this tends to have the consistency of a thicker moisturizer, and when you rub it into the skin, it stays tacky. I find that this work beautifully when the product has a few minutes to sink into the skin. After that, my foundation applies beautifully on top and keeps my skin looking great all day.

  1. The Laura Mercier powder is literally my all time favorite! Nothing compares to that product!

  2. I love the Laura Mercier powder too - it's definitely worth the splurge!

    xo, Liz

  3. I've started using that translucent powder too this month and I bloody adore it! But I definitely want to try the Too Faced blushes - I've heard so many good things about them and I'd love to try some next month.

  4. Lorac eyeshadows are great, I love how creamy and buttery the formula is. My only concern is that I tend to get a bit of fallout but I guess it's because of how soft they are <3

  5. I've been wanting that Lorac palette for the longest time! It's such a hassle to get a hold of their products :( It's such a stunning palette though! The last Essence mascara I tried, I wasn't too fond of. Must give that Princess one a go :)

  6. I got the soap and glory primer about a year ago now on a total whim, i only use high end products 99% of the time but i wanted to try the brand. Needless to say it gave an amazing first impression, i have about 15 high end primers and this S&G one puts 3/4 of them to shame, I'd pay £30+ for this!

  7. I loooove my Lorac Mega PRO 3! The shadows are so creamy and easy to blend. You have great taste.
