Today I’m rounding up a few of the products I’ve been loving over the past month or so, and this time, there a couple that I’m REALLY glad that I tried!

Indie Lee Rosehip Cleanser  – This was an impulse purchase as I wanted to try a new face wash but didn’t really have one in particular in mind. I’m so glad I did because this gentle cleanser has been a welcome addition to my AM skincare routine! I use it in conjunction with a One Love Organics konjac sponge and my face feels fresh and clean. The rose scent is yummy but not overpowering, and overall the cleanser is just lovely!

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector – Champagne Pop  – This product has gotten so much hype so I was a bit skeptical to try it, but thanks to Sephora I was able to get it for free – and it really is one of the best highlighters that I’ve tried in a while! The powder is so soft (almost creamy) and has such a gorgeous luminous champagne shimmer. It’s very pigmented so you only need a light hand to apply, but as someone who LOVES highlighting products, I have been pretty impressed!  Read more

Earlier this summer I realized I have an excessive number of pink lipsticks but typically only wear a few shades on a regular basis. In an effort to make sure they were all getting a little love, I decided to start a 50 Shades of Pink Lipstick challenge for myself to catalog a different shade each week using the hashtag #fiftyshadesofpinklipstick on instagram. These are the first 10 shades, and as you can probably tell, I have a thing for bright pink lipsticks more than any other shade! I haven’t actually counted the exact number of pink lipsticks I own, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be make it through 50 weeks of different shades…

Unfortunately some of these are limited edition and sold out, but I linked other shades that are close dupes for most of them. You may have noticed, half of these are Bite Beauty lipsticks – they are hands down my favorite because they are incredibly pigmented and last all day!

Do you have a favorite pink lipstick?

I am not disciplined when it comes to a lot of “healthy” or “good-for-you” things like eating enough vegetables, drinking enough water, unplugging from technology, etc… but when it comes to sunscreen, I NEVER leave home without applying SPF! I was definitely not kind to my skin when I was younger (weekly visits to the tanning salon were typical), but now that I’m older and have hyperpigmentation and potential wrinkles to deal with, I am extremely conscious about protecting my skin! On a typical day, I will layer several products with SPF (sunscreen, foundation, powder), but on lazy days or when I’m just running out for a quick errand or two, tinted sunscreen is a must-have!  Read more
