Ten Things I’m Loving Right Now

February 21, 2010

  1. MAC Metal Rock Mineralized Skinfinish (From 2005 Gold Play Collection) – One of the prettiest complex coppery-deep bronzey colors. I like to use this for eyeshadow rather than on the face. For my skin it’s too dark to use on the cheeks. The closest I’ve found to this is NARS Fez.
  2. Bobbi Brown Penny Metallic Eyeshadow (From 2008 Bronzed Pink Collection) – Also limited edition. Gorgeous warm sandy copper shimmer. Highly pigmented. Blends like magic. Try Bobbi Brown Burnt Sugar as an alternative.
  3. Chantecaille Cheer Blush – Soft light peachy pink glow.
  4. Edward Bess Sunlight Highlighter – You’ve seen the review and swatch comparisons before. I love this for the perfect glow.
  5. MAC Beigeland Lipstick – Yay for B2M! Lovely light nude-gold shimmer. Not quite as pale as Gel, but pretty similar.
  6. YSL Rouge Volupte #26 Tender Peach – Also swatched/photographed before. This is such a lovely healthy fresh peach that doesn’t scream “loud.”
  7. Chanel Seashell Glossimer – The perfect sheer glowy pink. It’s better than topping lipsticks with clear gloss because it just makes everything look better with a subtle shimmery glow.
  8. March Issue of Lucky Magazine – This was a surprise for me, normally I don’t really find many things in this magazine that appeal to me, but in this issue there are so many cute outfit and shoe ideas in this issue. Definitely a good read!

  9. Pottery Barn Vintage Milk Bottles – Couldn’t find the individual ones online, but they have them instore. So cute to store pencils or small flowers. Online they have a set of 6 with the labels on the sides.

    These are the ones from Pottery Barn Online:

  10. Michael BublΓ© – I love his music. He has such a great voice. His songs Some Kind of Wonderful and Just Haven’t Met You Yet make my heart skip a beat.

    great post!



  • those vintage milk bottles are adorable! I bet your house interior is gorgeous!

  • I agree with your comment on Lucky! I usually read through them 1-2x and then recycle them because they're so blah in terms of content but this issue surprisingly good!

  • When I filled out TBLB survey yesterday, I forgot to mention that your "10 Things I'm Loving Right Now" is one of my absolute favorite type of posts you do. Please keep them coming! =)

    Isn't YSL's Tender Peach beautiful? It's such a soft, delicate peach. Last October I was looking at the Gloss Pur in Peach when the SA steered me towards the Rouge Volupte instead. I'm so glad she did because it became one of my favorites whenever I wanted a warm, glowing autumn look.

  • Could you swatch the BB Penny e/s? Pretty please with sugar on top? πŸ™‚ I've wanted to see a swatch of that for soooo long.

  • Hi ladies, glad you're finding some of my picks interesting!

    Tree – send me an email (use the contact form on the side bar) and I'll try and swatch/send it to you sometime later this week.

  • Hi Sabrina,
    Right now I am really loving that I have been having luck with MAC lipsticks again. For about a year my lips have had a funky reaction to MAC lipsticks and glosses and that made me really sad but in the meantime NARS lipsticks/glosses became my BFF. But lately, I've discovered that the MAC lustre lipsticks have been working for me. So that's been top of my list. Second is the Company Store across my office where I found Smoke & Diamonds e/s and Syrup lipstick – SCORE!
    Been busy this weekend packing – we're moving into a new house next week and I get to have my own bathroom so I'm super excited – i'm just that much closer to having a vanity table!

    hope you had a lovely weekend. oh and because of your Friday post I did check out the VS beauty line at the mall today – unfortunately the Sultry eye palette was sold out. Have you tried any of their blushes? oh and I did my MAC Too Fabulous pre-order. i guess I should have been packing, huh? hahaha

  • Lovely post! This is one of my favorite kind of posts!! The Pottery Barn milk bottles are so quaint and I love the way you've used them for single flowers! Great makeup picks… I swatched the YSL gloss Voluptes today and they look so pretty! I liked the shade called Sugared almond a lot…
    Some of my current faves:
    1. Jouer Amaretto
    2. Paul and Joe cream blushes
    3. MAC Molasses pearlglide eyeliner
    4. David Babaii for Wildaid volumizing shampoo and moisturizing conditioner– that's a combination that a hairstylist once suggested which always works for me… because I have dry hair but need the volume as well =/
    This line is completely sulfate/paraben free, all natural
    5. Chanel Winter nights quad
    6. Chanel aqualumiere in Mauritius
    7. MAC Refined MSF
