Weekly Loves

My Weekly Loves series is a every Sunday(ish) post on some of my loves from the week. Here is the fourth installment!

A newly purchased product I am loving

Clinique Quickliner

Clinique Quickliner Swatch

I bought two of Clinique’s new (and popular!) Cheek Pop blushes, and I received this Quickliner for Eyes Intense in Intense Plum as a gift with purchase.  I love it – the color is a gorgeous blackened plum, and it glides on easily and doesn’t smudge during the day.

A long-time or rediscovered favorite I am loving

loreal sahara treasure L’oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Sahara Treasure is a long time favorite – it’s just so easy to wear. I frequently use it alone as a wash for a quick neutral eye, and it’s also great as the lid shade for a smoky eye. Sadly, it’s not available in the US, though it occasionally pops up on Ebay.

My most-wanted wishlist item

it cosmetics naturally pretty palette

A new Ulta opened up fairly near me, and they carry several brands I’ve never had a chance to play with in person, including Lipstick Queen, Mally, and It Cosmetics. I swatched this Naturally Pretty eyeshadow palette by It Cosmetics and was blown away by the quality of the shadows. It’s available at Ulta for $42 or QVC for $39.50 (but QVC currently has a waitlist).

A blog post I especially enjoyed reading.

Liz at Beauty Reductionista is an admitted blush fiend (as am I!) and she put together a lovely post on her favorite blushes. I love reading about tried & true favorites.

  • I am wondering if I should pick up that It Cosmetics palette, or the In the Know palette by Stila that’ll be on sale at Ulta tomorrow…ahhh! I’m trying to save parts of my paychecks for IMATS next month!

  • argh i love liz’s posts too lol. i purchased sahara treasure but returned it since it was so close to one of the infallibles i already had.

  • Nice picks! That Clinique Intense Plum liner looks gorgeous! I’m wearing Black Honey from the same range today and love the formula 🙂

    Thanks for the shout-out! I’m really enjoying ogling that swatch of the Clinique eyeliner. They seem to be on a roll lately!

  • I love the color of Intense Plum! Sahara Treasure does look like a great plum. My fave Infallible e/s is Gleaming Bronze.
