Hi! Very excited to be talking about beauty favorites today! I haven't done a round-up like this in over a year (last one here!) so there's lots of amazing products to discuss that I don't think I've ever mentioned before. Though I have not been buying beauty products this year, I am always discovering "new" things in my, um, sizable collection. I was also given a BUNCH of stuff earlier this year after a friend did a de-clutter (thanks Christine!) so I've been slowly trying out all that stuff.

As this is coming on the tail-end of Summer (kinda?) most of these were staples in my beauty routine this Summer. However, many of them have translated into Fall! Either way, these are the things I can NOT keep to myself!

+ Wet N Wild MegaGlo Loose Highlighting Powder in I'm So Lit | I'm no stranger to loving Wet n Wild (anything really) but especially highlighters, but THIS is really next level. This was gifted to me as a "leaving my job present" (thanks Christine!) & is so incredibly pigmented & blinding that it needs to be applied very carefully. This is a highlighter for when you want to be seen from space.

+ L'oreal Lumi Glotion in Fair | This product gives the most gorgeous Summertime glow all over your face! I tried it once & it became a staple in my routine. I love using this in absence of a primer (when I'm not wearing foundation) or mixed in with a foundation. LOL @ Fair, which I am not (thanks Christine!) but this shade works fine for me, whether mixed in with something else or not, it's not a skin shade.

+ Flower Beauty Light Illusion Foundation in Sable | A gorgeous Summer foundation. Especially for me, because this shade is too dark for me already in November. I was excited to try this foundation after hearing beauty vloggers rave about it, my only complaint is I wish the shade range were better, because I would love to wear this product year round!

+ Note Cosmetics Compact Blusher in Desert Rose | I have mentioned this on the blog more than once, since it originally came via Boxycharm, but this became an everyday blush. It's the perfect Summer equivalent to my Wet n Wild Mellow Wine that I normally use everyday; Desert Rose being more peachy and Mellow Wine more of a dusty mauve. I love this!

+ Ulta Beauty Glow Enhancing Drops | Another random product from Christine, these replaced some ancient shimmer lotion I had when it ran out (I guess Bath & Body works doesn't make that anymore??) My favorite trick for taking a fancy look up a notch is a shimmer lotion, mostly on the legs and décolletage - trust me, it will give you that star quality. It looks like these are no longer available, but there are several comparable products out there: save - L'oreal Lumi Glow Boosting Drops / splurge - Cover Fx Custom Enhancer Drops (I also own this & it is great!)

+ Cover Fx Perfector Face Palette in Medium/Deep | I've long been in search of the perfect face palette for travel, so that I can stop bringing 10 different products. This one was part of a Boxycharm after I cancelled mine (of course!) but I was able to track it down via Poshmark. I wouldn't say it's the absolute perfect one I've been looking for, but it bears mention. I own both shades & I would say I'm just in between them both (as far as blush/bronzer goes.) The highlighters have glazed over a bit (maybe you can tell from the photo) which is my biggest complaint. I'll keep an eye out for my white whale face palette, but I did use both of these quite a bit this Summer.

+ Morphe x Jaclyn Hill The Vault Eyeshadow Palette in Armed & Gorgeous | I purchased the entire Vault collection as soon as it was released, & I have found these smaller palettes much more useable than the original Jaclyn Hill palette, which I also own. Maybe it's the paradox of choice? I just like the Vault colors better! I used this specific vault palette SO MUCH this Summer, nearly everyday! I used those 3 yellow-y matte shades for a simple but pretty diffused look, & would often stop there, or smoke it out & add some shimmer if I was feeling fancy or going out! I think these tones especially work well with my skintone. If you are wanting to buy one Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette - this is the one I would recommend!

+ e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush | When I only wear concealer vs. foundation & the whole deal (about half the time) I usually use a brush, & it's most often this one! It's just great for blending on the fly - densely packed & covers a lot of area. This is also a SIX dollar brush which cannot be beat.

+ Morphe Brontour in Vlogger | I know I've mentioned this before - but I'm declaring it my perfect/favorite contour shade. I have struggled to find the exact right color for contouring on my skin tone, but this is what I use when I want a no-fail contour that looks awesome. Oh, only the shade on the right. I know Vlogger is perfect for me, but I am curious to try out some other shades.

+ Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Beauty | I wear this a lot on this blog (here for one!) & it lived in my purse all Summer long. Just a great, cheap, matte but not too matte, neutral but not nude shade that I always get compliments on!

+ Wet n Wild Contour Makeup Stick in Call Me Maple | I'm such a baby with cream products, but I can't deny a cream contour looks really nice & natural in the Summer, & a stick is probably the best way to go about it. I went through a phase of a few weeks where I only used this for bronzer! You do have to be careful about blending really well & NEVER putting this on top of powder.

+ Becca Cosmetics Lipstick in Taupe | A new favorite nude from Christine! This is more of a brown nude vs. the Milani mauve nude. This lipstick has a cream finish that's even a bit glossy, & easy to throw on at any point in the day. On an aesthetic note, you can just tell this lipstick is luxe - the tube is a heavy metal and it clicks in place with a magnet.

As always, I would love to hear about any and all products you're loving in the comments!
