I am back today to share some of the past couple weeks beauty faves!

I have been loving all things BECCA Cosmetics this week!! The excitement continues for me, I try a new product every most recent fave will be below

Any requests for new posts can be emailed to

Also, I am starting a 60 day challenge with my box tomorrow I can't wait!! More on that to come

1. Derma Roller

I had to get a new roller this past week since my other roller started sticking ah!
Think: I was rolling my skin and it would stop mid-roll OUCH!

Yes I am still needling and I love it!!!!

2. Makeup Geek Shadows & Crown Brush

 Shadows L to R { beaches n cream, brown sugar, creme brulee }

Loving the pigmentation on these shadows! And at $5.99 each they are extremely affordable

Also loving my new synthetic Crown Brushes! Reminds me of my fave  Sigma brushes
but super duper cheap and excellent quality

Speaking of Sigma...

I pulled out my synthetic kabukis and I just love them for blending out everything on my face

Why did I ever quit using them???

4. BECCA Beach Tint Souffle


OMG....this stuff is awesome

Not super pigmented but I kind of like that because you can build it up. Also looks great on all skin tones I have played on!

This stuff is da bomb. I love that it has the signature BECCA highlighter throughout the product

What are some of your favorite new products???

LORAC Pro 2 Palette

I have been playing around with the LORAC Pro 2 palette at work, getting a feel for the colors and I just love it.

Below are a couple looks [ sorry for the poor shots of the eyes ] that I created with some of the shades.

Cannot wait to invest in this palette! Such a great mix of colors esp if you are just getting into eyeshadow, the LORAC palette or my other favorite the original Naked palette both have a great mix of neutral and darker shades.

Look 1
Both looks are very subtle and matte but I will list below exactly what I did
1. Used 'Buff' all over the lid all the way up to the brow bone
2. Used 'Nectar' which is an orangey shade to play up my fading tan as a transition shade
3. Followed that with 'Lt Brown' on the outer corners and crease as well as smoked out the lower lash line with the brown
4. Finished off with a little more 'Buff' below brow bone

Super simple day time smoke with a hint of peachy-orange. Nectar is such a gorgeous shade  

And of course all over my face was iT Cosmetics { !!!! } 

Look 2
A bit more of a cool toned look and still all matte
1. Used 'Buff' all over lid and up to brow bone 
2. Started with 'Lt. Brown' as my transition shade
3. Followed with 'Cool Gray' on outer corner and into crease
4. Smoked out lower lash line with  some 'Lt. Brown' and a Mally eye liner

Check out this palette!!

New Summer Beauty Products

AH my apologies for being M.I.A.

I have been on holiday and out of the country!

Which leaves little time for blogging...Who am I kidding { I loved it!! }


Anyway, I am back to share with you some new beauty purchases and items I have been loving lately this summer.

Y'all know I love the voluminous carbon black
already, probably my fave mascara ever. They came out with this one in the 'Voluminous' line called Miss Manga and I have to say I love it. Makes my lashes look so long and I add the carbon black on top and they look sooooo thick and voluminous. New staple for sure.

Let me preface this by saying I never wear lipstick and have yet to find a nude lip pencil I love...
Until now!!!
This nude lip pencil-which is double sided-comes in three shades, I have Nougat.
It claims to have the one side which is the nude liner and the other side which creates the appearance of larger lips. You use the light side to over outline the lips, right outside where you did the nude liner.
Outcome: I love it! It does make your lips appear larger and the pencil is so creamy. 
ALSO...the light side doubles as a concealer to cover up a red spot or pimple.
WIN f'in WIN ladies

3. Makeup Geek Contour Brush
I am always trying out brushes. My faves will always be Sigma 
but Jaclyn Hill used this brush in a tutorial and I have been looking for a decent contour *only* brush. So far so good....BUT it sheds like a mofo which I don't like. Maybe after a couple washes it will be better. I'll keep ya updated

I have read about this highlighter alllll over some of my fave beauty blogs
& watched on YT.
I love it! It has been sold out at my sephora(s) for such a long time and it finally came back in stock online and I ordered [ shade Moonstone ].
I love it so far! So creamy and not super shimmery or glittery. I find a lot of highlighters are just so frosty and with flecks of glitter { ugh }

This one is gorgeous though! You won't be disappointed, and there are a couple other shades as well for every skin tone although this one looks great on all.

Hope y'all enjoyed! Looking forward to getting back to reg postings...
Any requests?

Friday Favorites

Yay starting this up again...

Kind of like my old 'insty em' posts, but I will be sharing my favorite items and such from this week

I will have beauty products, hair, Crossfit, you name it

Enjoy your weekend XX

1. St. Tropez Gradual Tan
So to keep my lovely summer tan going, I mix a little of this tanner in with my favie body lotion and apply to my whole body.

It keeps my glow going all summer and year round

2. Tervis Tumbler
Esp in the summer, I like my drinks cold and to stay cold. I recently got this cute palm tree tervis in Panama City and I've been using it non stop for all my dranks.

3. OPI Polish
I have been digging the fun Brazilian collection by OPI and esp "Kiss Me I'm Brazilian"

which is currently on my fingers :) 

4. Lululemon Speed Short
You all know how much I love these shorts for WODs but right about now since its 100+ degrees out they are a staple in my workout wardrobe.

They are a must! So breathable I just love them so much. I still need those bruised berry ones! 

5. iT Cosmetics CC Veil Foundation
My love for iT started quite some time back, they just came out with their ever popular CC Cream in a compact and I must say I love it.

I won't divulge too much right now, { BIG review to come } but it is so amazing and looks flawless on the skin! Ahhhh can't wait to go into more detail.

Much Love

Why I Don't Use A "Moisturizer" Anymore...


The title may be a bit misleading because I do moisturize still { DUH! }

But not with a traditional cream or lotion product...

I have been on a serum kick for about 8 months give or take now, and I will never go back!!!

I told you a couple posts ago that I have been using an organic rosehip oil on my post-surgery scars as well as my face.

Apparently Dr. Oz called it "Nature's Retin-A" Ugh I will never ever put that crap on my face!!

So in my skin needling post I briefly mentioned how luminous and youthful and even toned my skin has been looking since incorporating this oil into my routine. And let me tell you, I will never ever quit using it.

Like my skin is so amazing I never wear makeup evs

So here's a bit more info on the benefits of rosehip oil :)

 What is Rosehip Oil good for? Can I use it?
YES! Of course first make sure your not allergic to this oil, but everyone of any age can use it.
It's great for the following skin concerns...
  • dry skin
  • eczema
  • dermatitis
  • psoriasis
  • stretch marks
  • wrinkles
  • sun damage
  • acne scars
  • and much more

What does it smell like? Roses?
Def does not smell like roses FYI

Some clients of mine literally won't buy an amazing product just bc of the smell like WTH!

I am totally not like that at all, smell is not a factor in my thought process. If it works give it to me!

It does not have a bad scent but it sure as heck ain't roses!

When Will I Start to See Results?
As I cannot guarantee your specific results without knowing your specific skin, I can tell you that I started to see immediate results in a couple weeks and continue to make progress with this oil and my skin needling

I love love love this oil and will never go back!

Does It HAVE To Be Organic?

And I say this because I take what I put into my body and what I put on my skin very seriously.

So yes it must, must be organic!

So again, this facial oil has completely changed the way I look at my skin and what I put onto it. Only the freshest and purest ingredients! I promise you will see results if you are consistent!!!

Do not use this for two days and say "Oh I haven't seen miracles so I am going to quit using it...."

I can't wait to hear your feedback and if you have any other organic oils you think I should try email me at emasonbeauty@gmail or leave a comment below!

Lulu Lust List

I have not done one of these posts in a while


There are tons of new products I am dying to get my hands on and here are just a select few

Next To Nothing Tank
One of my favorite things about Lulu are their super cute sports bras. This tank showcases them like no other. It is flowy and loose perfect for around town, maybe not so much Crossfit approved.

Um.... who else puts their phone//keys//credit card//shit in their sports bras??

This girl does

And this bra is specifically designed to PUT things IN it
haha it has an extra layer for goodies!!!!! YAY!
So pretty much this is a must get bra

 Trikonasana T

Cute & flowy perfect for post workout
super cute back detailing?
winner winner

 Run:Speed Short

I am loving everything Bruised Berry lately
& these are no exception.

I also die for anything 'wee stripe'

Until I have enough confidence to wear boogie shorts, I'll stick with the speeds

  Wunder Under Crop*Roll Down

You all know by now I pretty much live in anything 'wunder under'
I love this Earl Grey color so much it's the perfect muted green

 Cool Racerback
Oddly enough, I am digging the new camo colors
The grey/black is more muted but I really like this green
Adding to the arsenal soon ;)

Will have a comprehensive post on my top Lulu swimwear picks soon. Some of those tops are so cute and sporty looking.

What have you been lusting over at Lulu lately??
