I have been on my beauty A-game lately. For the past month or so I simply cannot get enough of all things beauty and my Sephora app has been getting a lot of exercise being constantly opened and closed.

I've been testing a lot of new products and rediscovering some old ones so I figured I would jump on here and do an old fashioned round up of everything that has caught my eye lately.

Kylie High Gloss

I used to hate lipgloss but once I find a formula that works, I'm as loyal as can be. I've spoken about my lipgloss obsession with the Bite Beauty French Press glosses & the Laura Geller Nude Kisses -- they are my favorites and I'm always skeptical to try something new. I'm afraid that the gloss will be goopy or sticky and that I will hate it. I was always intrigued by the Kylie Cosmetics High Gloss and there has rarely been a Kylie product that I don't love, so after a few reviews, I decided to purchase one of them.

I picked up the shade "Daddy's Girl" which I thought was more clear but turns out it has a strong pink undertone. This gloss is a little on the thick side but what's great is that it's not sticky or heavy on your lips so you don't feel it. It adds the perfect amount of shine and glitter to your pout without being overbearing. I love wearing it alone or on top of lipstick (I recently wore it on top of the Kylie lipstick "Bare" and oh my goodness, it was delicious).

If you're skeptical about lipgloss, I think you would really enjoy the High Glosses. I can't wait to pick up another.

Jason Wu Perfume

I received this perfume in an Influenster Vox Box a few months ago and put it away for safekeeping since it was much more of a spring scent. Well, I broke it out this month and have been addicted. I bring it with me everywhere for touch-ups (because I feel like I constantly need to reapply perfume -- I'm terrified of smelling bad) and it's just a gorgeous scent. It's a jasmine first scent with notes of pink pepper, fig, iris, and sensual woods. It makes me incredibly happy when I smell this and really puts me in the mood for the warm weather. It is really hard to describe perfume scents in words so I recommend heading to your local Bloomingdales, Macy's or Saks to try it out. 

Tula Glow & Get It Cooling and Brightening Eye Balm 

The eye balm that launched an insane wait list! I was so happy when I finally scored it a few months ago when it was back in stock. It sold out in a few hours and the waitlist went back up. When I saw bloggers reviewing this, I was SHOCKED at the before and after. Their dark circles were gone with one swipe; it was at that moment when I knew I needed it. When I first applied it, my mom was confused; did I have on makeup? What did I do to make my dark circles disappear? This is a magic product and I'm so happy to have it. It is also very cooling and hydrating so whenever my under eyes feel a little dry, this clears that feeling right up. You can also use it on top of makeup (which I have not done yet) so that's an interesting feature as well.

Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped

I mentioned this in my VIB Sale Recommendations post and since then, have purchased the full size. It's a thicker moisturizer that really sinks into the skin, leaving your face incredibly hydrated. I wake up in the morning and my skin still feels like there is lotion on it, but in the best way possible. My skin has not been nearly as dry as it usually is and it makes my skin feel refreshed. Applying it after taking off a long day or night's makeup feels like giving my skin a tall glass of water. It's a must-try in my book! 

Isle of Paradise Tanning Drops

When I first heard of these I was pretty stunned. Tanning drops? For your face? I felt like they were magic. They were also magically difficult to get ahold of. They are constantly sold out on Sephora's website so when I saw them pop up over on QVC, I grabbed them. I've used them a handful of times but I need to be more diligent. I like to drop one baby drop full of this into my Lala Retro Whipped and rub as evenly as possible over my face. I only do it on the nights where I'm self-tanning my body because this sucker works fast. I always wake up with a sunkissed face but nothing overpowering. There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to the drops, make sure you're using the right amount and spreading it evenly over your skin. I use the Medium drops and I probably should've bought the Light but they're pretty great. I will definitely be using them all summer long.
