TAG: Products I'm using right now!

 The last time I did this particular tag was over a year ago, and it was a tag that I really liked & enjoyed reading on other blogs. Since it's been so long, I thought I'd post an updated one!

Shampoo: Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo or Kiss My Face Big Body Shampoo.
Conditioner: I don't use Conditioner, but periodically I use the tube of conditioner that comes with the box of hair dye I use (Clairol Natural Instincts). I mainly just work it though my ends if I feel my hair is a bit dry.
Treatments: Unrefined Coconut Oil or Caster Oil. I also just purchased Beyond the Zone Protein Cocktail; which I'm loving so far.
Styling products: Fantasia Heat Protector/Polisher, Beyond the Zone Flipped Out Hair Spray & Bedhead After Party.
Styling Tools: Remington Sleek and Curl Tourmaline Ceramic Straightener & Hot Tools Ceramic Titanium Hair Curling Iron.
Shower Gel: I use whatever is in arms reach - Lately I've been using up my Bath & Body Showel Gel in the scent Sweet Pea that I received for Christmas. I also like to use Coastal Scents Black African Soap, or my good ol' pink bar of Dove.
Body moisturizer: Unrefined Shea Butter & Jojoba Oil.
Deodorant: Secret Clinical Strength.
Fake Tan: SUN Labs Dark Spray & St Tropez Gradual Tan Everyday Body Lotion.
Cleanser: Neutrogena Cleansing Towelettes & Coastal Scents Black African Soap - I don't use any specific cleansers right now.
Exfoliator: Nothing currently for my face. I sometimes use a exfoliating face brush but it's a little too harsh. I like using an exfoliation glove in a warm shower if I feel my face needs it.
Primer: Hard Candy Sheer Envy Primer (I'll be reviewing this soon)
Foundation: I switch off foundations very often. I've mostly been wearing Cinema Secrets, though.
Foundation brush: ELF Studio Stipple Brush & my new Sonia Kasuk Synthetic Flat Top Brush.
Concealer: I'm finishing up my sample of Keromask & I've been using Maybelline Fit Me Concealer quite a bit - despite it's not the best.
Powder: Rimmel Stay Matte Transparent Powder
Blusher: I wear different ones all of the time. My most worn this past month have been NARS Madly, MAC Frankly Scarlet, MAC Improvise & Illamasqua Lover.
Bronzer: Again, I wear different ones all of the time.. but my most worn this month have been NARS Irresistiblement, NARS Luster (which is actually a blush, but it's quite golden) & Rimmel Sun Dance,
Highlighter: Urban Decay Sin Eyeshadow. I've had this eyeshadow for over a year and barely used it.. I just recently discovered that its an amazing highlighter for the face and I use it every day!
Eyeshadow base: None - But, once in a great while I'll use MAC Bare Canvas.
Eyeshadows: All of the browns in my Napoleon Perdis Smoke Signals Palette, NARS Coconut Groove, MAC Cork
Eyeliner: Haven't been wearing it much, but usually MAC Point Black Liquidlast Liner and I've been using Wet n Wild's Creme Liner more often..
Curler: Shu Uemura
Mascara: Shiseido Mascara Base, Covergirl Lash Blast (orange tube) & Covergirl Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara
Brows: I use different ones all of the time because I have so many brow products I want to use up. Ones I grab for the most lately have been MUFE Eyebrow Corrector, ELF Eyebrow Kit, Maybelline Define-a-Brow & Essence Brow Pencil. To set my brows I use ELF Tame & Treat or MAC Brow Set.
Lipstick: OCC Lip Tars all month.. It's either a combo of Hush & Divine or a combo of Divine & Trick.
Lipgloss: I actually haven't been really using any colored glosses. I mostly wear clear over my lip tars, so I've been trying to use up my Victoria's Secret Lip Plumper Extreme. I like using it with the lip tars because the brush applicator makes it easy to blend the colors together. I won't repurchase this product again though..
Nail Colour: Nothing is on my nails right now because I'll be painting them tomorrow morning. I've been alternating every week, but I have to say my favorite has been Revlon Top Speed Fast Dry Nail Polish in the shade Cupid.

I'm not going to tag anyone in particular because I know some people don't like being tagged. So, I'll leave it up to you guys! I would love to see you do this tag though - if you do, please post the link to your post in my comments! If you don't have a blog and want to share "what you're using right now", post in my comments as well! I'm excited to read them!


  1. I'm the same about using an exfoliation glove in the shower for my face...also use castor oil and coconut oil in my hair - how do you apply yours? I put mine on my scalp for a couple of hours.

    I did the tag a while ago too - here's the link:

    A lot of the make-up remained the same (except I'm now loving Falsies mascara)...but my skincare has completely changed (use cetaphil, neutrogena and antibiotics right now) and haircare (I use nioxin).

    Oh - and I LOVE Moroccan Oil now that I've figured out how to apply it correctly LOL (I wrote on my tag that it made my hair oily)

  2. awsome tagg
    ill be doing it

  3. Great Tag! I just did mine, check it out at:

    Are you still liking the Keromask concealer? I've just ordered a couple samples from CRC & can't wait to try them out!

  4. i've been waiting too long to get Coastal Scents Black African Soap & Unrefined Shea Butter. I love my Jojoba oil, i go through it way too fast, need to find a more economical size!
