Weekly Favorites #3

After my recent purchase at Ulta, I’ve been back into sitting at my vanity and playing with my makeup for too long, but we all do when we get a box of makeup in the mail, right?  It’s time to wrap up everything I’m super excited about in my Weekly Favorites #3!

Weekly Favorites #3 | Born To Be Bright

The first thing that I’m psyched about is Gossip Girl, I started a few weeks ago and I’m just beginning season three.  If you haven’t watched it, grab a box of Lucky Charms and prepare yourself to be yelling at Chuck non-stop, or is that just me?

Also, can we talk about Zayn’s new song Pillowtalk? It has been playing non-stop since the day it came out.  Bonus points for Gigi Hadid in the music video!

Onto beauty, I am so pleased with BareMinerals’ Complexion Rescue so far, which hydrates and covers with ease, not sticking to any of my pain in the neck dry patches. This looks and feels like skin without skimping out too much on coverage. But don’t get me wrong, there’s a sheer coverage here but it’s not too thin that it doesn’t make sense to buy it. I’m so happy about this product and I can tell it will soon hit the books of products I’ve bought more than once.

Another product I’ve been using every day is the Too Faced Hangover Primer which hydrates and makes its easy to smooth foundation over and gives an extra layer of moisture to my skin, protecting it from the harsh Winter air. Definite plus that it smells like coconut water in that non-offensive sort of way.

Lastly, I have been loving the BareMinerals BareSkin powder and this is 100% named appropriately. The finish can only be described as skin, not matte or luminous at all. It also feels so light, exactly like bare skin. Although this offers close to no coverage, the texture makes up for it.
