Currently Loving


It's been a little while since I've done a currently loving post and honestly, that's mostly due to me trying out some new products and trying to narrow it down to the ones I will be purchasing again!! So here's five items I'm loving!! 

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I don't think I could say enough great things about this mascara! I'm utterly obsessed! I'm almost tempted to say it's my favorite drug store mascara! I've been getting an amazing curl and lift with it. I pair with with my Clinque lash primer and Gary has even gone so far as to ask if my I was wearing false lashes!! I will 100% be repurchasing! 

Urban Decay "On The Run" Palette

I finally bit the bullet and bought this palette before my trip to Puerto Rico. I can't even tell you how in love I am with it! It literally has everything you need to get ready for the day, with the exception of foundation or a BB Cream. The colors are universally flattering, in my opinion and I love that they included a brown eyeliner instead of the usual black! Also, the lip gloss is a full size tube that retails for $20 alone, which is almost half the price of the set alone...so money well spent if you ask me!! Also, if you're wondering...this was the only thing I brought with me to Puerto Rico for makeup!! 

Bobbi Brown Blush

I hadn't had a "holy grail" blush for as long as I've been wearing makeup, Tarte Amazonian Clay came close, but this blush knocks it out of the water. It's so pigmented and stays on for hours. I love that a little goes a long way and the pale pink color is really the perfect shade of pink! 

Rocksbox Goodies

Rocksbox
I've talked about Rocksbox on and off for the last few months and this past month's box was by far my absolute favorite! So much so that I actually ended up purchasing both the earrings and necklace - and I've already been wearing them on repeat for the last few weeks!! If you're interested in a free month you can use the code "blovedbostonxoxo

MIXCUPS


MIXCUPS
We are a coffee and tea loving household and when I was able to review the subscription based service of MIXCUPS I was thrilled! Their "mix of the month" gives you a variety of coffee brews and teas without the risk of getting bored with the same ones every day! I'm really happy with the service and have already repurchased another month for Gary, but he doesn't know it yet!! I was torn between the mix of the month again which gives you 30 cups or the mini mix of 10 cups...ultimately I went with the mix of the month again because coffee and tea are always needed! MIXCUPS is definitely a subscription box that I got behind! 

Have you tried any of these out? 

I was sent a box of the "mix of the month" to review, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. You always have great recs for make up and other pretty things :) I need to get a mascara that I truly love because I haven't found one yet. Rocks box always seems to have really pretty things--I may have a subscription in my future! :)

  8. My sister and I were debating about that UD palette I'm glad to hear you like it! That's a sweet deal with those kcups! Bringing your coffee to work every morning saves so much money!

  9. Thank you for this honest review. I have to try out that Maybelline mascara most definitely. I haven't been happy with mascaras lately. That UD palette looks stunning but I have several similar ones. I am dying over the 2 stunning pieces from Rocksbox that you got. Such a cute necklace, especially.

    Happy Thursday Biana!

  10. I've been eyeing the Naked on the Run palette for a while now, sounds like I need to just pull the trigger and purchase it for our next trip! And Maybelline can do no wrong when it comes to mascara, I've been a Falsies lover for years :)

  11. I will be checking out the mascara, love Maybelline. I like the idea of the coffee every month.

  13. I need to get new mascara really bad and now I might have to give that mascara a try! I have been using the same mascara forver but I have been wanting to switch it up! I heard on another review that it takes forever to dry, do you think it does? Love what you kept from Rocksbox!

  15. So many goodies! I've been using that mascara as a second coat over my CoverGirl LashBlast - it works great! That UD palette may have to be an upcoming purchase - it looks ideal for traveling.

  22. Love all of that makeup!! That's awesome that the palette was the only makeup that you took with you on your trip too!! I'm going to try that mascara when I'm done with the two kinds that I have. My sister got Chris a subscription to a coffee of the month club and he loves it. :-) I hope that you have a wonderful day lady!!

  24. Oooooh, I'm loving that necklace! So pretty! Also, that mascara? I just added it to my shopping list to buy today! I'm excited to try it! I'm done spending a lot of money on mascara! I'm pretty lucky to have a lot of eye lashes so I really don't notice the difference between drug store mascara and high end mascara... it probably doesn't help that I've had eye lash extensions as well so when the high end mascara doesn't look like eye lash extensions in the end? I'm done paying a lot of money for it, ha ha!

  25. Oooh, loving the In The Run palette - the colors are gorgeous. I'm such an Urban Decey fan!

  39. That palette is amazing, it is also the only thing coming on vacation with me makeup wise! I am going to have to try that mascara I love the drugstore variety and am always testing out new finds. I didn't know about Mixcups but will be heading over to check it out, I cant function without coffee!

  42. I was just thinking this morning that it is time for a new mascara, mine is getting a little dry. I am so looking for that one this weekend!!! I love all the naked products that I have tried, I am sure that palette is awesome! We just got a Bobbi Brown in our Belk here and I haven't been by yet but that blush makes me want to go because I am almost finished with my current one.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Definitely going to purchase that mascara. If a guys asks if your wearing falsies, is must be good! I've been dying to try that pallet, but I just can't convince myself to spend that much. Which is probably why my makeup collection sucks, whatever.

  50. I was at Ulta a couple days ago and picked up that palette and then put it back down. Pricey but I am glad to hear your review. My Naked2 is almost gone and I have to say UD can do no wrong for me. Love it all!

  52. "Be yourself, everyone else is already taken" is one of my all-time favorite quotes! I really need something with that saying on it. That necklace is amazing too! I've never used that mascara…my favorite is MAC Haute and Naughty but I should try that (cheaper too!)

  58. Those earrings are sooo pretty! I wish I could wear them without my ears feeling like they're on fire! That palette wasn't really on my radar (I was trying to avoid wanting ANY palettes, haha) but now you've changed my mind because I want to try one of the lip glosses, so that seems like a bonus!
