Sink Sessions

Happy Thursday my beautiful friends! I have recently been stocking up on some of my old beauty favorites as well as trying some new products. I decided to incorporate my favorites into a blog post for you all to see some of my current obsessions. We also have a cameo appearance by none other than the star herself, Harlow. Harlow is one of our cats that we rescued. She is quite the diva (I don't know where she gets this trait) and she wanted to get in on the action. 
I'm looking forward to doing these beauty favorites on a monthly basis for me to share with you my favorites that I like to use on a regular basis. Please enjoy the products below and check out what I have on rotation.

Check out the links below by clicking on the title:

1. The Microdelivery Detoxifying Oxygen Peel by Philosophy This is a great two part mask that is a great weekly regimen for you to use with your nighttime skin care routine.
2. Renewed Hope in a Jar Re-Energizing Moisture Mask by Philosophy  This moisture mask is FILLED with all great moisturizing ingredients and truly gives your skin a drink of water after complete.
3. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion -This is AWESOME for adding to your blemishes at night and in the morning POOF they are gone.
4. Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II by Estée Lauder I have used this product for years and this is one of my all time favorite products. The serum seeps into your skin without leaving it sticky. I highly recommend this product.
5. Clarisonic Mia 2 Skin Cleansing System I wanted one of these systems for years and in 2011 I finally broke down and purchased one. I recommend this product to all my friends and family. It is amazing how "clean" you thought your skin was before this tool however after your first use it you will be extremely disappointed and wandered where this product was your entire life.
6. GloPRO Microneedling Regeneration Tool - I saved the best for last, this tool is AMAZING. Special thanks to this amazing product for truly redesigning my skin. I know that my skin will forever be grateful for this product for years to come. I also love their Holiday Rose Gold Edition that they just came out with. Check it out here.

1. 1. 'Amazing Grace' Firming Body Emulsion Lotion by Philosophy I lather up in this lotion every night after my shower. This lotion is not only moisturizing it is also a skin-tightening recipe that always makes my skin feel hydrating after.
2. GLOWSTARTER Mega Illuminating Moisturizer by GLAMGLOW This moisturizer is GLOWING and it is not only the name. I was sort of skeptical at first however after the first use I was sold.
3. 'Radiance in a Flash' Instant Radiance & Tightening by Guerlain This stuff is like botox in a bottle combined with a highlighter. This serum sucks in your fine lines and highlights the area with just a small dab of your ring finger.
4. Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 by Laura Mercier This is definitely one of my "holy grail" products. I love the way that your foundation sets after you put this moisturizer on.

2. The Lip Scrub and Balm by Sara Happ I bought this lip balm and scrub duo last summer however it looks like Nordstrom only has the scrub now. I bought the scrub in Sparkling Peach and it tastes and smells like a Peach Bellini.
3. Translucent Loose Setting Powder by Laura Mercier I absolutely adore this setting powder, A lot of beauty bloggers love this product and I was hesitant at first however when I first set my under eye makeup with this it was a total game changer! 
4. Hypnose Doll Lashes Mascara by Lancome in So Black! This mascara is a great mascara to layer. I typically like to use a primer mascara first and then finish it off with this one. It gives you full volume and extension. 
5. Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Foundation by Chanel I first discovered this foundation a couple of years ago and this is a fantastic option for someone who wants a fresh natural look. The foundation has water in it and therefore is applied ever so lightly to create the dewy finish. I currently wear the color 'Beige' in 10. In the summer time I do increase to the 20 in 'Beige.'
6. Ambient Strobe Lighting Highlighter Powder by Hourglass I currently wear the color 'Brilliant Light.' This is a wonderful highlighter that is very pigmented and gives your skin a nice glow.
7.  Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Compact foundation by Chanel This foundation gives off a lasting, flawless look. I prefer to use a powder brush (See Below) to apply this powder.
8. Unfortunately the ybf powder brush that is dual-sided is out of stock however here is a great alternative. Stacey, the founder and creator of this line is a good friend of the family and I absolutely adore her products and her even more amazing personality. Check out her website here.
9. Make Up For Ever Artist Shadows 1- 9 Artist Shadow Palette  This palette I purchased at Sephora however this is my GO TO palette. I use this everyday to transition into a night time look. Every color is highly pigmented and absolutely beautiful on.
10. Meteorites Pearls by Guerlain These pearls are formulated to use as a finishing powder and to boost your complexion to make your skin glow.
11. Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner This is a great eyeliner that stays put all day and doesn't move at all. I love how dark the color is and I wouldn't go anywhere without this product.
12. Chanel Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil This is an easy eyebrow pencil that will allow you to shape and mold your eyebrows. I will be honest, even though this product is easy to use I feel like the spooly brush could be thicker.
13. Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick by Stila I love this liquid lipstick however I must say that you MUST apply a lip moisturizer before this lipstick or it will be very drying. I currently have the 'Fiore' color.
14. Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Colour Unfortunately they do not have my favorite color anymore however I am obsessed with the color #116 in Envoutante.
15. Chanel Bright On Rouge Coco Moisturizing Glossier Trio This kit might be on the expensive side for lipgloss coming in at $92 however I can't tell you how many times these colors have come in handy. I absolutely love the texture of this gloss and the quality is what you are getting. 
16. Paws down, the 'Velvet Orchid' Fragrance by Tom Ford is my FAVORITE fragrance. My sweet love got this for me as a surprise after I mentioned it ONLY once and I wear this everyday. This fragrance is sexy, sultry, and floral all in one. A little bit goes a long way and I am grateful to be able to think of him overtime I put this on in the morning time. I truly do believe your outfit and appearance are not complete without a glamorous fragrance. 

I hope that you all enjoyed the first "Sink Session." I plan to recreate this post on a monthly basis with items that I am obsessed with. Stay tuned for next month's roundup and let me know what you thought of this post in the comments below.
