Favorites: January 2018

1. Agave Lip Mask by Bite Beauty

I wrote about this in last week's post on lip care already, but I wanted to add that Bite is apparently releasing a lavender one in the U.S. soon and I'm so excited.

2. Sephora Collection PRO Mini Flawless Airbrush #56.5

This was this year's VIB Rouge gift, and what a great gift it was. At first, I was skeptical because I've typically relied on more firm brushes for my foundation, but this one surprised me. It spreads the foundation evenly without leaving a streaky mess, and it also doesn't soak up too much of the product either. And it's nice and travel-sized!

3. S'well water bottle

I got a S'well water bottle in December as part of an event swag bag, and I love it. All last year, I struggled to find the right water bottle that wouldn't leak in my backpack or fall apart unexpectedly. So by the time I got this bottle, my first thought was, "How will this disappoint me?"

Well, so far – it hasn't. It really does keep liquids cold for a really long time (Na got one of the coffee tumblers recently and said it's kept her coffee warm for a longer period of time than other tumblers) and the lid is secure. Plus, it isn't bulky! The best of all worlds.

4. Sephora Collection's #Lipstories Lipstick

These are $8. I repeat: Eight. Dollars.

And they're gorgeous. The formula is creamy and the colors are gorgeous. I also love the packaging, even though I've heard some people criticize it because it's paper-based. But I think that's what makes it unique, and I love the idea of having each tube serve as a sort of photo postcard of sorts.

My current obsession: Hong Kong by Night. It's beautiful.

5. Boulangerie Jar - Espresso

I've been obsessed with this coffee-smelling candle since sniffing it at Anthropologie, so it was such a delight to get it as a Christmas present from Amanda! It's a subtle scent when you light it, and it looks pretty on my desk too.

6. RÅSKOG Utility cart

My new bathroom doesn't have a ton of storage space (really, it has none), so I've had to make it work in my room instead – which is fine because doing my makeup at my new desk/vanity set-up is much better than leaning over the sink to see myself in a mirror. The best addition to all of this: this utility cart from IKEA that holds all of the makeup I'm reaching for frequently, plus nail polish and lotions, all stored in handy little baskets on the cart. And I can even wheel this thing to the bathroom if I want to do my makeup in there.
