5-in-1 BB Cream Eyeshadows ($18) by Bare Minerals: I use one of the 4 colors I own on an almost daily basis. They make a great base for powder shadows or paired with eyeliner can be a one and done natural look. I also love that they have SPF, something you don't usually see in eye shadows.
: I've grown to like this even more than when I first reviewed it back in March. It's a lovely formula, but I thought it was too hydrating for my oily skin to wear year round (and in summer when my skin goes into oil producing hyper drive, that's true). I also thought it was a bit too sheer for less than perfect skin. In cooler weather, however, I'm using it on an almost daily basis with just a smidgen of a fuller coverage matte foundation mixed in. It's good stuff and I will be repurchasing soon.
YSL Cherry My Cherie #5 Volupté Tint-In-Oil by YSL ($32): I originally reviewed this from a sample but have since gotten a deluxe travel sized version and I love it. The Cherry my Cherie color shows up nicely on my lips and even stains them a bit after the gloss has worn down. I find this to be very comfortable and it lasts for 3-4 hours, which is about tops for me.

Supergoop CC Cream ($32): I received a trial size of Supergoop's CC Cream in my February Birchbox and liked it so much I purchased a full size of the Light to Medium. It was my go to foundation for the summer and I really, really like it. For a CC cream it has surprisingly good coverage (I'd say medium) and looks very natural on. Between Supergoop for warm weather months and bareMineral's Complexion Rescue Hydrating Gel Creme for cooler weather, I think I've found my holy grail foundations. I'm super excited that both also have skin enhancing ingredients and good SPF levels.
