Top 10 Award!

I want to say thanks to my dear friend Christina over at Red Lip Gloss for nominating me for another blog award! I have told y'all about her blog so many times, but it truly is one of my favorites! And.. fun fact: she also has a dance background (like me!). So thank you again to Christina!

The rules for this award are simple:
  • Link back to the person who nominated you.
  • Nominate 10 other bloggers.
  • List your 10 favorite beauty products.
So here are my 10 favorite beauty products of the moment!

Bath & Body Works 'P.S. I Love You' Shower Gel -- I currently have 3 bottles of B&BW shower gels in rotation, but this is the one I'm reaching for most often. The scent is light, floral, and slightly spicy. It's a perfectly feminine scent!

Ocean Potion 'Ever Glow' Daily Moisturizer with Gentle Skin Darkeners -- I've reviewed this before, but it is still definitely a favorite. Amazing orange creamsicle scent, easy to apply, fabulous looking results.. and ridiculously cheap. What's not to love?!

It's a 10 'Miracle Leave-In Product' -- Again, another product that I've done a full review on. It's a 10 seriously is a miracle in a bottle. I'm still working my way through my sample of this, but it has done wonders for my dry, damaged, and seriously abused hair. Not to mention, it's helped eliminate 2 other products from my hair care routine! How can you beat that?!

Hard Candy 'Sheer Envy' Skin Perfecting Primer -- So this post is making me realize that I only review products I love... but I guess that's not a bad thing. Sheer Envy helps keep my oily T-Zone in check all day and helps my foundation/tinted moisturizer and concealer apply flawlessly. I can't believe it took me this long to start using a face primer! Also, this is a fantastic dupe for Smashbox's Photo Finish primer, in case you're interested!

Essence Lip Gloss -- This has basically become the only brand of lip gloss that I use. It's $1.99 for a huge tube at Ulta, and the colors are great, long-lasting, non-drying and not sticky. So.. it's basically the perfect lip gloss! I have 3 favorite colors (a nude; a very pale, sheer, glitter pink (pictured above); and a hot pink) that I have multiples of for home and my purse.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils -- The one I have and use most often is 'Cottage Cheese' (pictured above) although I do have other colors as well. These are a great as an eyeshadow base, and the pencil application makes them so convenient!

L.A. Colors 'Cafe Au Lait' 6 Palette Eyeshadow -- I got this (along with several other L.A. Colors palettes) at the Dollar Tree and I honestly wasn't expecting much. Unfortunately, I haven't even used my other palettes yet because I can't stop using this one! It's the perfect nude palette, and when combined with the NYX Cottage Cheese Jumbo Eye Pencil above, it turns into the most gorgeous daily natural look.

Palladio 'Pure Black' Herbal Eyeliner -- Here's another previously reviewed product. This waterproof eyeliner is swim and sweat proof, and stays put on my waterline for up to 8 hours. Plus, it is one of the most intense and "true" blacks I've seen in a crayon eyeliner.

EOS 'Sweet Mint' Smooth Sphere -- This little blue "egg" has become my holy grail of lip balm. The formula is amazing and oh-so moisturizing, and the mint flavor is amazing. It's tingly and sweet and.. seriously, just perfection.

China Glaze 'Always A Bridesmaid' -- It wouldn't be right if I didn't include a polish in my beauty favorites! 'Always A Bridesmaid' is a polish I'm dying to get my hands on. Right now, it's my go-to polish every time I get my nails filled and it's the perfect "cleanse the palette" nail color.

And now for the bloggers I'm nominating:

Erika at Chloe's Nails
Deniz at Emerald Sparkled
Hannah Michelle at Hannah Michelle's Beauty Blog
Stacie at Kawaii Nail Art
Jane at Nailside
Michèle at Lacquerized

Again, many thanks to Christina for my newest award! And if you haven't checked out the bloggers I've nominated, you definitely should! They all have absolutely fantastic blogs!
