This month I’m CRAZY ABOUT CREAMS. Stay tuned for a few of my favourite cream make-up merchandise all all through January.
BRRR! You guys…it’s so chilly! ⛄
I do know that that should sound mildly hilarious coming from a ☀️ Californian, however severely, there’s an enormous distinction between Northern California and Southern California. Here in NorCal, it will get nearly freezing…
Hardy-har-har, sure, I do know that 37 levels isn’t arctic, however let me inform ya, it’s been so chilly within the mornings that my butt bones, my enamel and even my eyebrows are chilly!
Now, you’re in all probability pondering, “DUDE, why are we talking about the weather??” Well, as a result of — gotcha! — cream make-up make-up, i.e. eyeshadow, cream blush, basis, what have you ever. When the temperature drops, cream merchandise are available additional useful as a result of they have an inclination to last more whenever you aren’t sweating buckets.
Truth be informed, although, I’m an all-year-round cream product junkie as a result of I like how easy they appear on my pores and skin (not like powder), and I’ve been all about cream every part since I hit 40.
That mentioned, the theme this month on MBB is “Crazy About Creams,” and I’ve been sporting right this moment’s friends of honor on and off for greater than a month. They’re the Honest Beauty Creme Cheek Blushes.
“Buildable and blendable color right at your fingertips, our cream blush is your go-to for an instant, dewy flush for cheeks. The lightweight formula melts onto skin seamlessly and comes in a stashable compact for easy on-the-go application.”
Use your fingers or a sponge to calmly dab the cream blush onto the apples or your cheeks. Blend upward towards cheekbones in a round movement.
Smile to simply discover the apples of your cheeks for spot-on software each time.
“Here at Honest Beauty, we pride ourselves on delivering clean beauty products that work.

You may or may not notice small droplets on the surface of the product, please rest assured that these droplets are completely normal and will naturally absorb back into the formula after use. This does not impact the quality of the product. We got you, babe. Keep on being beautiful.”
I’ve been utilizing two of the 4 shades — a coral pink and a wine — and each are sheer-ish, in order that they’re pure wanting. Plus, the satin end goes properly with any variety of basis finishes, together with velvet, matte, satin and even dewy finishes. It’s all good.
The shades are additionally tremendous reasonably priced at $12.99, though you’d assume you have been working with a $32 Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge or a $29 Laura Mercier Cheek Cream), and past the superior worth, these have one thing else elevating them past the typical cream blushes, and that’s longevity. They really keep the place they belong and don’t pull a disappearing act midway by way of the day.

If the MAC Cream Colour Bases work properly in your cheeks, you’ll in all probability additionally like these as a result of they really feel very related. Just like you possibly can with the CCBs, whenever you decide this up from a pan with a fingertip or a sponge, you possibly can seize an excellent quantity, despite the fact that they’re considerably dry (as in not moist) for a cream.

Lyric movies are the perfect issues ever!
I can’t even let you know how a lot time I spent in my youth getting the lyrics to songs utterly improper… Case in level: Throughout most of my childhood, I believed the refrain to Sade’s Smooth Operator was “Ooh, Barbaretta. Ooooh, Barbaretta,” as a substitute of “Smooth operator. Smooooth operator.”
Coast to coast LA to Chicago…
Anyway, do you know that they’ve these items on “the ‘tube” known as lyric movies, the place you possibly can take heed to a track and likewise see the lyrics on the display screen?
This is a discovery that I discover to be each 1) life-altering and 2) fairly humorous at occasions, as a result of the issues that I feel individuals are saying in songs are typically SOOO WRONG.
Like, I’d been listening to this track on the radio recently known as “Body” by a band known as Loud Luxury, and despite the fact that the music is so catchy, I had NO IDEA what the singer was saying. If it hadn’t been for this lyric video, I in all probability would’ve lived the remainder of my life pondering that he was speaking about cruller doughnuts within the half the place he says, “I want that crew love.”
HA HA HA!
