Current Obsessions | Products I Cannot & Will Not Stop Talking About


I throw around the word "obsession" very often, but sometimes it's the only word that fits for describing something you're in love with, that you can't stop talking about, that you want the entire world to know about, etc..

I really wanted to share some of the things I’ve been loving lately because I cannot stop telling every single person I know about these products, and it only seems fitting to write a blog post about them.

These are products that aren't necessarily new, but instead products that I've been using a lot and loving a whole lot lately. 


Current Obsessions | Products I Cannot & Will Not Stop Talking About





This eyebrow gel is amazing. I received it in last month's Birchbox and I was a little worried it wasn’t going to work for me at first. It’s in the shade blonde, and although my hair is blonde, it’s dyed, so it’s not my natural color. My eyebrows are darker and the only shade that usually works for me is taupe. 
Blondes tend to be too light or too orange toned for my eyebrows, but when I use this gel it’s somehow a perfect match. Even better, it does such a great job at keeping my hairs tame and giving me that Insta-worthy brow. 


I got this at TJMaxx and I was pumped because it was less than $15! I’ve been loving highlight a lot lately so I was even more excited when I discovered that all of the shades in this palette looked great on my skin. The formula is amazing, the pan size is perfect, it lasts all day long, and it gives my skin that gorgeous glowy look! 


I’m a chapstick addict. Like, really. I have 7 different ones I’m using currently. One in my bathroom, one next to my bed, one in my bag, one in my car, etc. This one is my favorite at the moment. I love the shape of the tube, it fits super comfortably in my hands. More importantly though, I really love the way it makes my lips feel! My lips always feel soft and extremely moisturized when I put this on! 


I received this in a Sephora Play box and oh my god. I’m probably going to, wait never mind not probably, I’m most definitely going to be purchasing this when I’m done with this sample. I honestly didn’t think it was going to work nearly as good as it does. Pores are literally erased when I use this and my skin looks so smooth! 




I’m not really a blush person. Or better yet, I wasn’t really a blush person until I started using Benefit blushes. On a recent trip to Ulta, they had this mini set of Benefit blushes, and their Hoola Bronzers, and I decided to give them a try and I’m in love. The pigments are amazing, they blend so well, and they look so good on. This one in particular, the Gold Rush blush, is my favorite. The shade is perfect for my skin tone and leaves me with a very natural, flirty looking blush and I've been using it almost every time I do my makeup. It's safe to say I'm pretty obsessed. 


And this fucking sports bra..



I can't find a link for it, but I recently got it at Marshall's and I'm in love. It's from Puma, but I got an awesome deal on it, ($15)! If you have a larger chest, you'll love it because it provides enough support for high intensity workouts, but it also doesn't feel constricting. It literally feels like I'm wearing nothing. I wanted to include it in this post because every time I'm wearing it, I need to tell someone how damn comfortable it is. 





Have you tried any of these products before? What are your thoughts?

  1. Bye bye pores powder sounds interesting. I had tried a pore minimizes by Tarte that hoes on under foundation and wasn’t sure I was seeing a difference. I’ll give this one a try. Thanks for the scoop!

  4. I love Palmer's lip balms! I have super dry lips, so I would love to be on the level of owning 7 that I rotate through all the time, but I'd definitely be willing to add that one to my teeny collection!
