Recent Favorites (TV, music, makeup)

It's been a while since my last favorites post, so here are my latest obsessions!

TV: The Americans (the show with Keri Russell living as an undercover KGB agent in the 80's) is actually amazing. I was skeptical, and thought it would be a campy spin of Alias. I was completely wrong; I think it's probably most similar to Friday Night Lights' storytelling. You care about each of the characters, even if you don't like them. The show is only just now in Season 2, so it's easy enough to watch in a few weekends to catch up.

Music: Kacey Musgraves I was able to get a sampler of about 100 songs on Google Play for some promotion and I kept replaying (and singing) her single, "Merry Go 'Round". After checking out some of her songs and liking them, I thought I had discovered this completely new talent on my own. Well, she won a Grammy the next day. In case you are also not too current on the country music scene, definitely check her out if you like simple melodies with female vocals!

Makeup: Tarte Airbrush Finish Foundation Brush: This brush makes the difference between your makeup looking like makeup and looking like great skin. It's pricey but using this has made such a difference!

Mally Evercolor Shadow Stick in VioletI used to be obsessed with the Mally Shadow Sticks, and even finished the Shadow Stick in Twilight. This Violet color is now probably the only color I would repurchase, as it's unique and worth the cream eyeshadow drama.

Nails: Revlon Zealous: It's a pastel yellow with sparkles, and somehow it doesn't look bad! I usually am not a fan of Revlon nail polishes OR pastel yellows OR sparkles, but this was a definite winner for me. As it's kind of an off the wall color, I would probably wait until CVS or Walgreen's 75% bi-annual clearance. I got mine then for $1-2 with a coupon and there were at least 5 more in this shade!

Hair: Pantene Curly Hair Shampoo and Conditioner is great. I got a sample in the mail to try and I am definitely going to get this as soon as I run out. I recently dyed my hair a bit, and this was the only thing that restored it back to pre-dyeing softness.

What are your makeup and hair favorites this month? What are you watching and listening to?
