Happy New Year TNLers!
Sing with us! “When the dooog bites, when the beee stings.. When I’m feeling saaaad. I sim-ply re-mem-ber my fav-ou-rite things… And then I don’t feeeeel soooo baaaaad!” *spread arms and twirl*
So now that you feel like watching The Sound of Music, we ask that you finish reading this before grabbing that DVD. We wanted to share a few of our favourite things; these are things we can not imagine our lives without, or simply make us smile when we think about or look at them.
So let’s get started, shall we?
Hey TNL! What’s you Favourite…
ASH: Flowerbomb by Viktor and Rolf
CHRIS: Givenchy Play
ASH: Ahhh. Just one? Eyelash curler. But, I don’t need it anymore (Thanks Mync!) so…maybe my BeautyBlender. For those who may not be aware of the BeautyBlender…what rock are you living under? Haha, I kid. The BeautyBlender is a teardrop shaped sponge that you use to blend makeup. you wet it, then squeeze out the excess water ( it will double in size) and dab away on your face. There are loads of copycats, but the real deal is the best.
CHRIS: BeautyBlender – hands down it’s a game changer. It walked into my life, threw its stuff everywhere and settled. I had no say in the matter and I welcomed it with open arms…. and skin.
ASH: Always wash off your makeup before bed. ALWAYS!
CHRIS: YES Ash! Whenever I wash my face I let it air dry because towels leave “debris” behind, plus my face always feels less stripped. I also dry my hair with a t-shirt to avoid the fluffies again.
CHRIS: Yonka (summer) Embryolisse (winter)
ASH: Hard Candy Glamoflage in Medium, Maybelline Fit Concealer in 20
CHRIS: Vasanti in V12, Nacara concealer stick in Porto
ASH: Glam Glow Supermud
CHRIS: It doesn’t get better than the mud we got while visiting the Hot Springs in Panama. Once I run out, I’ll have to return – naturally. If you’d like you can check out my skin care regimen.
ASH: Mac Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus
CHRIS: Bare Minerals in Medium Tan, MAC MSFN in Dark or lately Give me Sun! or Nacara Pressed Powder in Cayo Largo. I swear I’m low maintenance!
ASH: Estee Lauder Double Wear in Honey Bronze and CoverGirl Stay Fabulous in Golden Tan. Read about my top 3 foundations here.
ASH: Dove makes great hair products that leave hair super soft without feeling weighed down.
CHRIS: Okay, just click here.
ASH: Garnier Body Intensive 7 days Soothing Gel Cream
CHRIS: I use either cocoa butter, raw shea butter or virgin coconut oil.
ASH: Jason Natural Cosmetics Aloe Vera Deodorant Stick
CHRIS: Degree Ultra Clear
ASH: Irish Spring Cool Scrub ( I love the men’s scent one!)
CHRIS: Dove Deep Moisture or Go Fresh Rebalance.
ASH: Irish Spring
ASH: MAC Harmony
CHRIS: I wear blush all the time and Nars Exhibit A has given my life new meaning! Also MAC Dirty Plum is gorge in the winter.
ASH: Rimmel Lash Accelerator, Lancome Definicils, CoverGirl LashBlast ( I love them all equally)
CHRIS: Rimmel Lash Accelerator and L’Oreal False Lashes. Together? HEAVEN.
ASH: Milani Liquid Eye ( formerly called Liquif’eye pencils)
CHRIS: Funny you should ask, I love Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner. Say the 5 times fast!
ASH: I love MAC shadows. The price, colour selections and pigmentation are on point. Some of my favourites include Ochre, Sketch and Plumage.
CHRIS: I also LOVE MAC shadows and my Urban Decay Naked Palette.
ASH: Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee. It’s just the perfect nude glossy throw-it-on with no liner lippy.
Can I just say, I am dying to see how Chris could possibly choose just one lipstick for this post.
CHRIS: Sigh. Please click here and scroll to #10: Getting to know Chris & Ash. That’s a modest condensed list *cough*. But I’d like to say the CG Embrace? I can’t remember life without it. I also started a Love for Lipstick series here. And HOW CUTE is Ash with her one answer?
ASH: Estee Lauder Blush
CHRIS: Bath and Body Works Cranberry
ASH: Anything super minty that tingles. The Aquafina one is good for this.
CHRIS: Carmex and Maybelline Baby Lips
Nail Polish Shade:
ASH: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark
Also, this isn’t a nail polish shade but honorable mention goes to Kiss imPress nails. Amazing product!
CHRIS: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue
ASH: Nail Tech and Seche Vite
CHRIS: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength
Nail Polish Remover:
ASH: Ok, so there’s this nail polish remover from Dollarama called Delon and I swear it works better than any name brand remover I have ever tried. Great for dark colours!
CHRIS: Yep – I also only buy nail polish remover from Dollarama. I refuse to spend loads of money on it. Well unless I’m removing shellac.
ASH: Hoop earrings. Again, Chris may have issues with this question.
CHRIS: SIGHHHHHH. This post is a set up!! Please click here: DIY Earring Art Display.
ASH: Rachel Roy. I just want to own her entire line. Is that too much to ask? I adore her. Oh yeah, and this happened:
CHRIS: Hayden Williams – I stumbled on his page on instagram and the kid is good. I would love to own one of his designs someday. But to wear right now? Anything from ASOS.
