It’s been quite a while since I did a Friday Favorites but I have been enjoying some new things lately and rediscovering some old things that I normally only use this time of year.  Check out the video below as I go through each item on my favorites list or click here to watch it on YouTube.

Friday Beauty Favorites 04.11.14

Eu Natural Clarity Organic Vitamin C Serum with E + Hyaluronic Acid – $39.95  I recently did a review on this product.  Click here to read all about it.  I love the texture and what it has done to my skin in such a little amount of time.  I’ve been on a kick with using serums lately, but I’m glad I decided to add this to my routine because it is awesome.

Perlier Royal Elixir Face Youth Serum with Royal Jelly – $99.00 (HSN)  I just started using this products about 2 weeks ago and my first impressions on this after using it in that time would be that this is gonna be a product I know I’ll continue to use.  My skin loves it and I enjoy it too.  A review on this product is in the works and after testing it the next few weeks you can expect to see one here.

Maybelline Color Show Nail Polish – Pretty in Peach – $3.99 (found in most drug stores, Walmart, Kmart and Online)  I have been loving peach and coral shades this season.  I normally don’t pull for those colors on the nails, but I found such a pretty shade that I love.  Check out the nail look I did using it here.

Wet n Wild Color Icon Bronzer in Goddess – $3.99 (found in most drug stores that sell Wet n Wild, Walmart, Kmart)  I have used this bronzer for a few years now, this is my 2nd one and I love that the shade is dark enough to show up against my skin.  Wet n Wild products are not only affordable but you can find them everywhere and this bronzer offers me the right shade for a great contour.

NYC Sun to Sun Bronzing Powdering in Sun Mist – $3.99 (found in most drug stores that sell NYC or Walmart, Kmart)  I usually use NYC’s Sunny – but have been using my Sun to Sun Bronzing Powder lately.  I love that it offers me a nice contour without being too over powering.  Perfect for every day use.

Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar – $8.99  This has been a favorite highlight for me for a year or so now.  It’s affordable and offers such a sweet and soft glow to the skin.  I am a huge fan of Milani products and this is no exception.

NYX Sunkissed Radiant Finishing Powder – $9.00  NYX did a great job with this Finishing Powder.  It has been a favorite highlight for my cheekbones and I love that it feels really nice and silky to the touch.

Milani Rose Powder Blush (Limited Edition – no longer available) Warm Petals – $7.99  Sadly this product is no longer available – but Milani really should bring it back if not in the Rose edition in a baked blush.  It is one of my favorites and probably the one I use the most from last years Rose Powder Blush collection.  This blush just offers me a glow and a light soft blush so that my face has added dimension without going overboard.  My fav to use every day.

Maybelline Color Elixir in Petal Plush – $8.99  I’m truly enjoying the color pay off on these Color Elixirs.  They have pretty nice staying power for a gloss.

Maybelline Color Elixir in Vision in Violet – $8.99

Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Tropical Frenzy – $2.99  I love these Twist and Shine Balm Stains.  Not only are they super duper affordable but you get great color pay off and pigmentation and a nice stain.  If you are one that wants to try out the balm stain pencils that everyone is raving about but looking to find a cheaper alternative – you may like these.

Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain in Sweet Pink – $2.99

Jordana Twist and Shine Moisturizing Balm Stain  in Candy Coral – $2.99

Laura Mercier Lip Glace in Tulip – $25.00  I am a huge fan of the Laura Mercier Lip Glaces.  They are a little pricier than I would like, but I love their color pay off and how they feel on the lips. They are comfortable to wear and I love the scent.

I hope to be able to keep up with these posts and videos like I used to.  Do you enjoy Friday Favorites posts and videos?  I think it’s a way for me to be held accountable and to shop my collection of beauty products more often and keep me trying new things.  Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

    • I didn’t think I would be – the reviews I watched were not completely positive but I am loving them. Glad I jumped in and picked it up.

    • I am a sucker for Milani I swear and they are always on it with packaging. The jordana balm stains are some of my favorites.
