I Bought This | Press SampleAffiliate Links
I’m not sure that I’ve ever done one of these for my blog, but the lovely Jacqueline of A Brilliant Brunette suggested the What I’m Using Now tag, so I’m doing it. You should too, if you’re interested!
Makeup BrushesI have been living and breathing my Goss Makeup Artist Makeup Brushes from Beautylish. (See my review) I believe these are soon to be back in stock at Beautylish. The shapes of these brushes are perfect for my eye shape and I reach for them daily. It was enough to convince me to cut my brush collection in half because I just don’t reach for most of my brushes. The Push liner set in this is a MUST HAVE. It’s the perfect size. Seriously, I could rave about these brushes all day. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Shampoo and Conditioner
I’m using my Cocoa Pink Princess Poo Shampoo and Argan Therapy Creme. I need to write reviews about these, however I’ve raved about them several times, including in my Best Sulfate Free Shampoos and Conditioners.
Right now, I’m using a teeny tiny amount of DermOrganic Texture Taffy (reviewed here) in my hair, a bit of Rock Your Hair Bombshell Big Hair Powder (reviewed here), and White Sands Infinity Hair Spray (recently reviewed here).
Bath and Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. But I bet you knew that already!
Cocoa Pink Coco Mango Body Butter in Black Chocolate Raspberries. LOVE THIS! It’s vegan.
If I’m going to fake a glow, I reach for Beautisol Summer Glow and Need I Glow More tanner. It’s non-stinky, streak free and gives the most perfect natural looking faux glow. See my amazing before and after photos in my review. It’s vegan.
Right now I’m using the Abbey St. Clare Aniba Cleanser (reviewed here). This stuff is wonderful and moisturizing, perfect for my sensitive skin.
I don’t really do toner, but, how about Urban Decay’s Vitamin B6 Prep Spray? It feels great on the face.
Hmm, for the body I use Bath & Body Works Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin Creamy Scrub. For the face I use my Konjac Sponge (see review) to exfoliate gently daily, and then a few times a week I use the Foreo Luna (reviewed here).
OMG! The amazing Ellen Lange Peel is what I use. It’s awesome! Check out my rave review.
I’m not using any masks right now. Can you recommend a good cruelty free mask?
I’m using the Paula’s Choice Super Antioxidant Serum (see my review), FutureDerm’s Vitamin CE Caffeic Serum (see the review), and I suppose Dr. Brandt Skincare dark circles away collagen eye serum.
For the face I bounce between Too Faced Primed & Poreless and OCC Skin Primer.
For the eyes I use Too Faced Shadow Insurance (see my review) and Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow Primer Potion (see my review).
I’m using Cover FX CC Cream in N Light (reviewed here), It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in Fair (see my review), and NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 in Finland (see my review).
I am currently using either Illamasqua Skin Base Lift in White Light or Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Skin Conceal in R0. They’re both great. OCC is Vegan.
I’m going to go with setting powders here. I’m in love with Silk Naturals Flattery Illuminating Powder (I NEED to review this), which is vegan. I’m also in love with NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder (see my review).
I can’t pick just one! NARS Desire, Tarina Tarantino Coral Cameo (see review), Nyx Natural (need to review), and NARS Silvana.
I don’t wear bronzer much. I’ll share my contour shade. Nyx Taupe blush, Tarte Park Ave. Princess, and Pumpkin & Poppy Oak Bark (cool toned contour powder) are my three go-to products for bronzer / contour.
This one’s easy! Too Faced Candlelight Glow Duo (see my review), bareMinerals The Many Splendors Luminizer (see my review), and Tarte Highlighter.
I can’t pick just one. Urban Decay, Sugarpill, BftE, Makeup Geek, Darling Girl and Morgana Cryptoria.
Urban Decay’s 24/7 eyeliners, Buxom eyeliners, NARS eyeliners and most recently Tarte Cosmetics eyeliners.
Urban Decay’s Cage Free Lash Curler. I love this thing. Everyone else thinks it’s creepy.
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (see my review).
I don’t wear them often, but I love my Sugarpill and Ardell lashes.
I’ve been wearing the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, my DIY OCC Lip Tar Pencils, and Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencils (reviewed here) a ton.
I’ve been reaching for NARS Albatross gloss when I want gloss.
My go to polish is Cult Nails Nevermore. I’m currently wearing Urban Decay Zodiac. I also love Zoya Neve.

OMG, I clicked the link to see you with a “tan”- I am so used to seeing you in your perfect porcelain doll fairness it was a shocker! I need to try those Wayne Goss brushes!
Hah yeah! Everyone is always shocked to see me in a tan.
OCC Skin’s concealer is great.
It really is! It gives the perfect, natural conceal.
I love the NARS Tinted Moisturizer, too. Actually, I need to go and buy some more, since I’m almost out!
For cruelty-free masks, I like to use Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque whenever I have an acne breakout, and I’m also fond of Freeman’s Dead Sea Minerals Facial Anti-Stress Mask.
Thanks for the recs!
Great summary! I would love to try Goss brushes! I’m loving Cover FX cream concealer at the moment so I have to try the foundation too!
I’m thoroughly impressed with Cover FX
I love reading tags like this and seeing what other people use – I might do this tag on Saturday. You have me lusting over the Goss brushes!
They are amazing brushes in my opinion
I seriously love tags like this. I love seeing what bloggers use day to day and also it’s fun to look back and see what you used to use years later.
Ooh this is such a great tag!! Might have to do it I’m forever lusting over those goss brushes…
They are so worth it! My best splurge of the year
I can’t wait to get the Wayne Goss set (awaiting a restock!)!!!
Thanks for such summary! It’s always interesting to see what fellow bloggers use on a daily basis. I added Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara to my wish list, after reading your review I think I need it in my life
It’s such a great mascara!
I’m actually curious about UD’s cage free curler. But it looks like they don’t sell it anymore.
Yeah, I don’t think they’ve sold it for about a year. I like it because it actually fits my eye shape and lets me get close to my actual lash line. I can’t go back to cage curlers
Shu Uemura just came out with a cageless one! I have been eyeing it since you’ve said so many times how much you love yours. I’ll report back if I get it
Loved seeing your current list! I am a fan of the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturizer too!
it’s so good!
After reading your list i need to branch out and try more products lol. Other than Too Faced, It cosmetics and urban decay i dont think i have tried any of the other products you mentioned.
It’s always good to try new things!
Great round up of everything
Glad you found it enjoyable
That was fun to read. Great idea for a post. I’m also in love with Zoya Neve!
I really like this post idea! It’s easy to read and very informative. Thanks!
