top ten tuesday

Kate Spade Flatiron Nylon Davie - I love this hot pink nylon bag, because it's easy to see while fishing around in my larger than life tote. Extra bonus with the nylon fabric for easy to wash care. 
NYX Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder - I never thought I would speak the words, but..my MAC Studio Fix Powder I rave about (all.the.time.) is just not doing it for me this summer. After watching a YouTube beauty guru (who also has the same oily complexion as mine) mention this powder here and it's price point, I knew I had to try it. And honestly, this stuff fits the bill. I touch up a couple of times during the day (around noon and mid afternoon), but other than that, nadda. My skin is good to go and isn't shining like a mirror in the heat and humidity.
NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium - I think I found something to replace my Prestige bronzer as well simply because this bronzer has amazing pigmentation without all the glitter and nonsense that most drugstore bronzers come with. 
Stila shadow in Kitten - I like to blend this highlighting shade in the inner eye and blended out with a taupe shade like Victoria Secret's Metallic Mink or Urban Decay's YDK for an everyday eye. Just a little goes a long way, and these shadows are so easy to blend.
Garnier BB Cream in Medium/Deep - Yet another purchase due to this video here, and quite honestly, I've been looking for something a little lighter on my skin during the summer but would give me the coverage that I need...seriously, if you have oily skin like me and are looking for new products, I would watch all of her videos. 
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NW 25 - One of my newest concealers that is easily my favorite for hiding under-eye circles and uneven skintone. I apply it with my Beauty Blender sponge.
MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose - If you saw my last vlog post, you know I'm getting really into highlighting and contouring this summer. I swipt this pen under my eyes, down my nose, and make a few swipes with what's left in between the brows and in the center of my chin for a light glow. You want to make sure this doesn't go just on the under eye area so that you don't produce a raccoon effect, and I blend it out with my Beauty Blender sponge.
Tocca Mini Perfume in Colette - This is the fragrance I chose to wear on my wedding day. During long days in traveling for work, I like to carry this mini with me to take me back to that day.
Olay Professional Pro X - This heat has my skin going crazy..dry one day, broke out the next. I can't deal. And as much as I would love the be the owner of a Clarisonic brush, that price just ain't happenin'. For me, the reviews for this little guy seemed right up there with the $200 version, and I haven't regretted it yet. My skin definitely feels smoother, cleaner, and I'm sure it's doing a thing or two at keeping my oil at bay. It comes with a small sample of the Olay Pro X cleansing gel, but I also keep using it with my ole faithful, a bar of Dove soap.

I should know this, but who sells NYX? I never see it anywhere!
