Beauty Trove's Top 5 for January 2018!

We are officially done with the first month of 2018!  I don't know about you but the start of 2018 feels a lot like 2017 did.  I seriously think I need to stop watching the news during the weekend and just catch up on Saturday.  Luckily, the makeup I have been trying out and loving this month has giving me a bright spot during the month.  If you want to know what I have been loving in cosmetics and beauty this January, keep reading.

1.  The Lorac Mega Pro 4 Palette ($59.00).  I picked this one up from Ulta on sale based off of a review by EmilyNoel83.  I am so happy with this purchase!  I love Lorac shadows and the Pro 4 did not disappoint.  This is a really fun palette with some truly unique shades.  I really love the FairyTale, Lotus, Unicorn and Steel Wool shades, they are simply some of the best metallics on the market.  All the shadows blend out like a dream.  I will be using this palette again in April.  It has a spring vibe about it. 

2.  Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Collection in Comfort Zone ($2.49).  This palette is simply icon.  The formula is extremely buttery and I wasn't expecting such a high quality given the price tag.  I love the greens and the dark neutrals.  The palette is currently on sale on the Wet n Wild website since its new formulation.  I would pick this one up while you still can.
3.  Elf Cosmetics Flawless Finishing Foundation ($6.00).  Elf has stepped up its game with this foundation!  I use a beauty blender with this foundation and it gives me the perfect look.  I look airbrushed and flawless.  This is also a great foundation for the winter since it is hydrating.  I think this would also work for those with combination skin but may not be appropriate if you are more oily.  This is definitely worth checking out and you can't beat the price.  The packaging is really good as well.  I love the glass bottle with the pump dispenser, it feels very high end. 
4.  J. Cat Beauty You Glow Girl Baked Highlighter in Bella Rosa ($8.99).  What a beautiful highlighter!  This highlighter blends easily on the highest points of your face and this shade in particular gives you the most beautiful pink glow.  I really love this highlighter and will be picking up more.  J. Cat Beauty has three new shades in and I can't wait to own them all.  This will be a great highlighter for February and in the spring.
5.  Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Elusive ($5.99).  I hate having dry lips during the winter and have been using hydrating lip products throughout January.  One of my favorites is the Revlon ColourBurst Matt Balm in Elusive.  This formula is extremely hydrating, plumping, and cooling.  There is quite the shade range and I hope that Revlon will start creating some new colors.  Elusive is a pretty true pink.  This shade is a nice complement with the J. Cat highlighter and Lorac Pro 4 palette.

Beauty Trove's Top 5 for December 2017!

Happy New Year Everyone!  This has been a thoroughly tough year and I am glad to be in 2018.  It feels great that we can start to shed the events of 2017.  To celebrate, here are my top picks in cosmetics and beauty for December 2017.  Let me know what your favorites for December are!

1.  Lorac Pro Palette ($44.00).  I am so glad I bought this eyeshadow palette.  I know I am late to the game but this is an iconic palette for a reason.  The colors are separated out into two rows, one for shimmers and one for mattes.  I like the categorization.  It makes it easy to create a fast eye look when I need to be rushing out the door.  The eyeshadows are gorgeous and really creamy.  They blend extremely easy.  I can't wait to purchase more eyeshadows from Lorac.  I do wish they would do a special restock of the Lorac Mega Pro 2 so that I could add this to my collection.  A girl can dream!

2.  Too Faced Peaches and Cream Comfort Matte Foundation ($36.00).  Okay this is your warning.  I am going to be featuring a lot from the Too Faced Peaches and Cream collection for my favorites.  I have to admire a good matte foundation.  I love wearing a matte foundation in the winter and this one does not disappoint.  The coverage is amazing and I can wear it throughout the day without any touch ups.  It smells like peaches too!
3.  Too Faced Peaches and Cream Peach Perfecting Mattifying Setting Powder ($32.00).  There is a reason why places like Sephora can never keep this setting powder in stock.  This is one of the finest milled powders I have ever use, absolutely soft.  It smells fantastic.  The powder really does keep you matte throughout the day.  Also, I really love the container.  It has a snap on lid that makes it easy to dispense and store your powder.  This pairs amazingly with the comfort matte foundation.  A fantastic pair!
4.  Too Faced Peaches and Cream Just Peach Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette ($45.00).  Wow, just, wow!  If you are looking to pick up something from the Peaches and Cream collection, look no further.  This is a great matte palette for lovers of warm toned eyeshadows.  You can get a lot of neutral, peach and berry looks with this eyeshadow palette.  I think this palette would especially be great for February.  The shadows blend really well and there is little to no fallout.  Definitely worth checking out next time you are at Sephora.

5.  Lottie London Only Got It Covered Sponge Applicator Concealer ($5.49).  I love drug-store makeup finds.  Lottie London is a relatively new brand to Ulta and has some absolutely lovely cosmetics.  I have been using the concealer nonstop for December and now January.  The coverage is excellent and really covers my dark under eye circle.  I also use this for extra coverage on my nose and chin.  The concealer blends out easy and is perfect when you set with powder.  Trust me this concealer is going to be a mainstay in my everyday makeup drawer.

Beauty Trove's Top 5 for November 2017

Happy Tuesday Everyone!  We are already well into December and closer to the holidays!  I know I have been somewhat late on the monthly favorites.  I will be discussing what beauty products I have loved during the month of November and will publish two different posts on the favorites for September and October, if you guys are interested.  If you are wondering what my top favorites for November were, keep reading.

1.  ColourPop's Element of Surprise Pressed Eyeshadow Palette ($16.00).  ColourPop has been extremely busy over the last two months.  Lately, it seems that they are launching a new eyeshadow palette every week!  But I'm not complaining.  I purchased the Element of Surprise Pressed Eyeshadow Palette when it first launched.  I was totally sucked in when I saw the palette pictures on ColourPop's twitter account.  This is the first palette to feature all forms of ColourPop's eyeshadows: mattes, shimmers, satins and duochromes.  The duochromes are gorgeous!  If you are fan of berry toned eyeshadows, you will especially love this.  The mattes blend really easy.  For the shimmer and duochrome formulas, I like to press those all over my eyelids with my ring finger.  If you need extra staying power, I would use the Nyx glitter glue primer.  This palette is worth the money, I am continuing to use the Element of Suprise palette in December. 
2.  Lorac x Disney Beauty and Beast Pro Eyeshadow Palette ($48.00).  Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie.  I love the original animated Beauty and the Beast and the live action film with Emma Watson.  Lorac teamed up with Disney to create this Beauty and Beast inspired eyeshadow palette.  I can't get enough of it and wore it throughout November.  The eyeshadow quality is the same as Lorac's other pro palettes...pigmented, blendable, and super soft.  I love that the eyeshadows are color dupes for the outfits worn by Belle and the Beast.  The packaging is also super cute.  It is shaped as a bookmark with a little ribbon bookmarker in it.  It features a nice front closing claps as well.  The palette goes on and off sale on the Lorac website so I would keep my eyes peeled for that.  In addition for yourself, this palette would also make a great gift.
3.  Nyx Cosmetics In Your Element Shadow Palette in Earth ($30.00).  Okay, yes the palette is extremely expensive for a drug-store brand.  However, the colors are gorgeous, particularly if you love golden and cranberry eyeshadows.  This in your element palettes are some of the best eyeshadows from Nyx Cosmetics.  I really love the cranberry and green shimmers in this palette.  This palette screams fall and winter.  If the price is a little on the steep side, I would wait for a 50% off sale on the Nyx website.

4.  OFRA Cosmetics Rodeo Drive Highlighter ($29.00).  If you absolutely need to glow, look no further.  Ofra's Rodeo Drive Highlighter is an absolutely stunning golden highlighter that truly looks like the sun.  Wear Rodeo Drive on the high points of your face and you will look like a golden goddess. 

5.  L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss ($10.99).  I know it sounds strange to have a matte gloss but it really is!  It is like the most comfortable liquid lipstick you will ever wear.  There is some transfer but I rather have transfer and staying power than having my lips feel as dry as the Sahara.  I have tried four of these in: Blushing Ambition, Nude Allude, Statement Nude, and Bare Attraction.  I love all of them!  I wish I would have bought the mini gloss lip set so I could try on more colors.  If  you wanted to try one out at first, I would suggest Nude Allude.  Nude Allude is one of those universally flattering colors that will bring any makeup look together.  There is a sale currently on L'Oreal products, 50% at Ulta.
