Lovin’ Lately

beauty and lifestyle blog 2016

This month’s Lovin’ Lately is definitely a bit skincare-heavy. 

One of the best new products I’ve tried over the last couple of weeks is undoubtedly the Fresh Seaberry Skin Nutrition Cleansing Oil– my review right here. It’s incredibly lightweight, doesn’t leave a greasy residue and does an amazing job at removing all traces of makeup. This is definitely one of my favorite skincare products at the moment.

Another skincare favorite that I already reviewed is Bobbi Brown Instant Detox Mask- review right here. This mask is different that a lot of other clay-based masks for a few reasons: it comes in a tube (which is something I prefer), it removes easily and, most importantly, it works in 2-5 minutes, which is great if you’re a bit inpatient like me.


Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist is my newest addition to my face mist collection (in case you didn’t know I’m a bit obsessed with them). It brings instant relief to that dry, tight-feeling skin and is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Black Oat, works great with sensitive skin, too.

My go-to base has been iT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in Fair. I reviewed the Illumination version of this CC+ Cream right here, but I like this one a bit more, because the finish isn’t as luminous. This is such a great product to use when you’re in a rush or when wearing minimal makeup (although the coverage definitely is buildable). It also has a very natural-looking finish.

Another product form iT Cosmetics I’ve been loving lately is their new Superhero Mascara. The brush is really amazing and I love the volume and length that it gives my lashes. I’ll definitely be reviewing and swatching this one for you!

pixi-hydrating-milky-mistFew other makeup products I’ve been using heavily are the Urban Decay NAKED palette, Pixi Invisible Smudge Stopper Lip Contour that I already mentioned in this post and MUFE Pro Finish Powder Foundation. The original NAKED palette is definitely one of my favorites, so many shades in this palette look beautiful with blue eyes. MUFE’s Pro Finish Powder Foundation is not a new product to me, but one that I use pretty much daily and have for years and at this point, you’re probably sick of me talking about it :) .

From now on, I also want to include a lot more “lifestyle-y” things in my monthly Lovin’ Lately posts. This month I want to mention two brands that I had a pleasure connecting with. If you follow me on Instagram then you probably already saw me mention both Klarf Watches and One by One Jewelry. I’m definitely not much of an accessory person and prefer delicate, minimal pieces when it comes to jewelry and accessories which is why I fell in love with both of these brands. Klarf Watches have minimalistic design and that classic look. One by One Jewelry pieces are delicate, feminine and absolutely beautiful. If you’re anything anything like me and prefer delicate jewelry, definitely check them out.



What are you guys loving at the moment?

    The it Cosmetics CC cream just didn’t work for me hahah! I found that it just smudged off throughout the day and I couldn’t get it to last on my skin. The Naked Palette is one of those palettes that I love to go back to when I don’t know what to do hahah! Such a lovely post :)

    I am curious about it cosmetics, it is not available in Europe unfortunately. I am not really an accessory person either, however simple pieces like that takes my attention. All black watch looks classy.

    I’ve been loving Lush face masks recently- I really love the Mask of Magnaminty face mask they have and use it every other night! The seabird cleansing oil looks lovely as well. :)

    That watch is definitely on my wishlist now. I also love the sound of the cleansing oil (I have taken your advice to cleanse twice and it’s made a huge difference). These posts are my favourite since we have similar tastes and you always feature a lot of my favourites, so we must have similar skin too xx

    I really want to try the IT Cosmetics CC Cream as I heard some great things about it. I tested it at Ulta and I would do best with the Tan shade. It’s been a while since the Naked palettes have been mentioned in blogs, but it’s old school! I have the 3rd one, haha. That Fresh Cleansing oil sounds amazing!

    I can’t wait to try the IT Cosmetics CC Cream. The mascara is pretty great though. I can’t wait to read your review!

    I’ll have to try the Pixi Hydrating Milky Mist. It sounds like something I could benefit from.

    I haven’t tried many Bobbi Brown skincare products but that mask sounds like something right down my street! I have seen that Pixi facial mist everywhere lately and it sounds amazing! I’ve also been reaching for my Naked palette a lot this month. While I personally hate the packaging of the original I feel it is definitely my favorite in terms of shades. Great picks xx

      I had it in Light a while a go and it was way too dark for me, Fair works much better without making me look too pale :)
