I’ve tried writing monthly favorites in the past but starting in 2016, I voluntarily decreased my yearly budget on beauty/makeup products, meaning that I rarely have new items to review and show my readers, that’s the only reason you haven’t seen that featured blog recently. My new Current Favourites theme doesn’t mean that a product has to be new, it can simply mean that I’m rediscovering older products I loved but forgot to talk about it. (this happens more than you think… The struggle of a beauty blogger is real). Enough chitchat, here are my TOP 5 products of the moment…

I bought this brush at the recent Sephora VIB sale and right after my first use, I fell head over heels in love. This is by far the BEST brush to set your concealer (under eye area). Nothing less than perfection! A real Game changer… Of course, this wonder could also be use to apply bronzers, blushes or whatever your heart desires… Oops! I guess I will need another one for these other purposes 😉. 5 stars – 10/10 – Thumbs Up – Holy Grail – Brush of the Year ; do I really have top go on!

Paula’s Choice Moisturizer
This moisturizer/sunscreen have been a total revelation. I was seriously starting to doubt that good sunscreens ever existed. I tried a ton (not even exaggerating), just to be disappointed time and time again. This new product completely changed my mind as the formula is so amazing: Paula’s Choice moisturizer dry fast, produce no white cast, don’t cause any breakouts, don’t mess up my makeup and are affordable. Thanks Paula!

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronzer
Every fall, I find myself reaching for this bronzer and the love usually lasts ’til April (I prefer a cream bronzer for summer months). I feel that Park Ave Princess is such a forgotten bronzer and it’s sad since for fair skin girls, it works like magic. Not too dark, not too shinny and certainly not to orangey. If you have it laying around in your collection, you should definitely dig it out.

If you don’t know about this shampoo and conditioner combination, you should really think of getting it: with an “out of this world”, super yummy smell, it will rapidly become a cult favourite. I hear you asking: “Ingrid, a lot of hair products are smelling wonderfully, why those?” – True, but I had yet to find hair products that would make my hair feel fresh for at least one more day. Little revelation: I’m someone who needs to wash her hair every other day because my scalp becomes greasy very fast and unfortunately starts to scratch and smell (I know it’s gross, but on this blog, we keep it real)! I swear, since I started using this duo, I only wash every three days and last week, I even stretched it to four days and my scalp didn’t itch or smell funny… I’m a customer for life !
Elizabeth and James Nirvana Bourbon
This perfume smells like a vanilla cigar on me and I love it. It’s so sultry, sexy and totally intriguing, far from my usual sweet *girlie* perfume! It’s a good sign when you can’t stop smelling yourself. The only tiny downside is that I wish it smelled a little longer but heck, it’s easy to reapply.
What’s your favorites?
