<strong>MAC 188 Duo Fibre Brush</strong> - I got this a while back so I have been using for the past month and so and I really love it. Before I purchased this, I was using a flat top brush to apply my foundation and while that brush does a good job of blending my foundation, I felt that the density of that brush makes me feel as though I am constantly dragging and tugging at my skin, especially when I`m in a rush. This MAC 188 brush is prefect because it`s not dense but because it has duo fibre bristles, you can still easy get an airbrushed look but stippling on your foundation. This brush is my go-to brush right now.

<strong>Revlon Lip Butter - Creamsicle </strong>- I really did not expect to fall this in love with this product but I did! I love that it is a three in one and it is a great pick me up for those days when I want to tone down my naturally-pigmented lips. I`m not kind to wear lipstick and lipgloss for school but I have no problem popping this on.

<strong>CeraVe Moisturizing Cream</strong> - I love this cream! The consistency is quite thick and creamy but it does not feel heavy on the skin at all. I used this as a facial moisturizer and it did not break me out. It`s definitely a great moisturizer to use in the winter time and/or at night if you need that extra hydration. I do not use this in the morning because I do feel like it does need a little more time to sink into the skin. I am completely done with this huge tub of product (it lasted me for such a long time, at least 4 months, and I use this on my neck too).

<strong>NARS Blush in Douceur </strong>- While I do own a couple of NARS products (Laguna, Orgasm blush, etc) and the Danmari blush palette, this is the shade I have been reaching for. Ive been loving this because of its double-duty function; since it is a neutral, brown and mauvey shade, it doubles amazingly as a contour. On those days where my face feels slightly bloated in the morning, I definitely use this (even over NYX Raisin) for a more sculpted look along with my bronzer. I am a big fan of NARS blushes as they are really pigmented and I love that this blush is not overly shimmery so it gives me a subtle glow but not too crazy such that the contour looks unrealistic and fake. One can absolutely use this alone as blush and contour.
