This Week's Most Loved Trio | Cinq

Don't worry; you're seeing things clearly. I'm delivering my trio of l o v e l y products two days early--for reasons that you will see on Sunday. Nevertheless, I've combined my most loved from the past week two weeks into this post, so you're still getting the best of the best of what I've been grabbing.

Things have been pretty heavy on the makeup front lately, mostly because I indulged in a bit too much dairy. That aside, I've also been grabbing some old favorites--first, the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Oil Free. Seeing as my skin has changed pretty drastically since it's original purchase, I can now slap it on without too much fuss. I still like to layer on a primer underneath (and the Smashbox one still reigns supreme in my stash), but I certainly don't find it as pore-settling or oily-appearing come three o'clock. A pea sized blob on the back of my hand, blended in with the Real Techniques Buffing Brush, and then layered with a bit of Ambient Lighting Powder keeps me looking fab all. day. Wait; I've already mentioned three products....
Blush wise, I haven't stopped reaching for the Stila Convertible Color in Gerbera. Firstly, it looks so darn natural, and, secondly, its heart attack inducing each time I look at it. Peachy pink perfection in a compact with a cream formula delivers a natural flush without a too over-the-top red tint. Add a slightly dewy finish and you've got me hands down obsessed.

If you haven't been able to tell by the lack of skincare posts drifting though these pages, I've gotten my routine down to a tee (minus the dairy incident; are you interested in a post?). Regardless, I've been slightly ridiculously facial oil obsessed and have been stalking every brand/formula under the sun. As per my recent Sephora delivery debrief, the Josie Maran 100 Percent Pure Argan Oil now rightfully has a place on my vanity. Although it's popularly famed as a multi-purpose wonder, I haven't been able to stop piling it on as an evening moisture dose.

So that's three products down. Next time I promise to keep it to j u s t three.


  1. Ohhh I have the Stila convertible in Lillium, but I might just have to buy that shade too. So pretty!

  2. Quite tempted to try Josie Maran's Argan Oil as a facial oil but, uber scared that it might cause some serious flare ups! Damn you sensitive, acne-prone skin!

  3. Ha! I feel your pain. In all honesty, my skin is pretty sensitive (and s e r i o u s l y acne prone) and I really don't think this will do anything bad; only good! xo

  4. Oooo! Lillium IS really pretty *grabs wishlist*. xo

  5. I really want to try the Josie Maran's Argan Oil it sounds like such a nice product


  6. Might just have to give it a whirl!
