Fave Four Friday | March 28, 2014

1. Favorite makeup item this week? The Clarins Skin Perfecting BB Cream SPF 25.  It gives incredibly good coverage for a BB cream (more than some of my medium coverage foundations!) and smoothes on like skincare.  I also can't put down the Bite Agave Lip Mask!  Hello hydration and baby smooth lips!
2. Favorite thing you're currently reading? I'm semi-reading both The Goldfinch and Divergent simultaneously and I'm loving both!  But I haven't had a lot of reading time, truth be told, so I'm not rocketing through them like I usually do.
3. Favorite item on your beauty wish list? Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Kristen!  Because come on...a pink gloss bearing my name?  That's a can-do!
4. Favorite time of day? I really enjoy 10 a.m.  It's early enough that I still feel like I have the whole day ahead of me, yet late enough that I am fully awake and in full game face mode!  I also love this time so much on weekends because I'm usually sipping a piping cup of joe and reading beauty blogs.  

Now it's your turn!

  1. Lucky you there's a Buxom gloss in your name! There's no Tracy though. :( And I like the Clarins BB Cream too! Just wish it came one shade lighter!

  2. I've been curious about Divergent...I hear its Hunger Games-esque? And I'm a night owl by nature like the gal below. I'd say my favorite time is immediately after the kiddo goes to bed! Lmao. Then my house turns into a frat-party-of-one.

  3. Yay Friday! :) Divergent is so, so good. I've yet to read the 3rd book, but its on my nightstand ready to go! I can't wait to see the movie. And you better believe I've got the Buxom Lauren lip gloss on my list too haha

    1. Favorite makeup item this week? Sleek blush in Rose Gold. Literally the prettiest blush I've ever put on my cheeks!
    2. Favorite thing you're currently reading? The only thing I've been reading lately is blogs (so much to read, so little time) but I know once I start Allegiant I'll be hooked
    3. Favorite item on your beauty wish list? Illamasqua's blush in Katie - according to all the blogs and YouTube videos that talk about this, it has magical powers or something, so I'm looking forward to the day I get my hands on it
    4. Favorite time of day? Usually around 10PM... I'm home, finished dinner and any chores, and finally get a chance to relax with my dog and husband :)

  4. How is there not a Buxom gloss in Tracy?! That's loco bananas. It's not like your name is Traceallanniah! Though I think maybe it should be form here on out, lol!
    Divergent is pretty interesting and good so far. i know if I had more wide open spare time, I'd gobble it down in a sitting. It's really gripping! And word to the night owls of the world! Woohooo! Or should I say, hoooo...hooooo.... ;)

  5. I love that! A "frat party of one"! That is awesome. Divergent is really intriguing. I would finish it in a single sitting if I had ore free time right now b/c it's got that gripping factor to it! Very interesting distopian novel thus far. And it's a certainly reminiscent of THG in a good way (a can't wait to see what happens next way)!

  6. I'm really interested in what I've read of it so far! I can't wait to find out what happens next! Kudos for the similar shopping carts with the Buxom gloss! Sephora VIB sale, anyone?! :)
    That Sleek blush in Rose Gold has interested me for awhile! Is it similar to NARS Orgasm? Katie blush has also been on my Sephora wishlist for a long time but I haven't heard about it's magical powers until now! I'm going to have to look into that! And yes to 10 p.m. That is definitely one of my top favorite times of day! R & R time, baby!

  12. Ok, this is a great post and I'd say I would copy you that sister on the 10am. Perfect time of day. Now a totally unrelated question I need help on - I use Blogger as well and have been struggling on how in the heck to add a Pin It button like you've got on my photographs?? I've yet to find a simple answer. Did you add one yourself or have someone else install? I need help if you've got the time friend!

  13. Oh, and I've got that Kristen color - it's the bomb:)

  14. 10 am is the bomb! Oh and I followed Ash's tutorial for adding a Pin It button and it was REALLY easy! She is SO nice to share her blogging tips! Here's the post where she goes over it! http://abeautymoment.blogspot.com/2014/01/how-to-add-pinterest-hover-button-to.html Prepare to be amazed! :)

  15. At least the palette is rocking your world, even though the price point wasn't anything to feel thrilled about! Which Caviar Stick are you eyeing? Orchid? I'm so curious!

  16. Hi Rachelle! Beautiful name! I've yet to play with the Dior Fluid Sticks but they're at the peak of my interest mountain, lol! And the UD Naked Skin loose setting powder has been on my mind for months! I'm glad to hear it's fantastic! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Melissa would have to be coral and uber glossy! It would be perfection! Can't wait to find out about the books and your plane trip!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you! :-) Yes! Or maybe the YSL Kiss & Blush too, both are quite similar I would guess but you can't use the Fluid Sticks on your face hehe.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ahhh I really need to read the things you recommended, especially since I keep hearing about Divergent! I wish there was a lippie bearing my name......fat chance lol. My fave time of day is 8pm when I get my "ME" time ;) haha It's been a long week.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've been toying with the idea of reading divergent. Is it quite similar to the hunger games?

    ReplyDelete
  21. If I had more time, I would have finished Divergent in a few sittings because it's really intriguing and gripping! It's so crazy having such a unique and lovely name such as you do because you never see it on souvenirs (remember the little bicycle license plates?!) but the awesome part is that you're named something really special! Your name is beautiful! :)

  22. Hi Gaelle! :) I'm not very far into Divergent but it's similar to THG in that it's a post-apocalyptic society centering around a young woman and the choices she makes. It's really good so far!
