Hi, friends! 😎 Here’s the next edition of What I Want Now! This month is all about beauty products.

If you’re not familiar with What I Want Now, it’s a monthly feature on CNC that I stole from Lucky magazine. In each of their issues, the What I Want Now feature shares one their fashion editor’s top picks and must-haves for the season. For me, it’s just stuff that I love/want each month.

Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist

Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist is the ultimate shine spray to evenly polish, repair and protect the hair – all in one ultra-light aerosol spray! The weightless formula combines four functions in one – it eliminates frizz, repairs split ends, provides thermal protection and evenly distributes brilliant shine!


Marie introduced me to Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist at our friends’ wedding over the weekend, and I instantly fell in love with it. It’s made with “high-grade silicone complexes” that create a lightweight spray for your hair”” sort of like hairspray, but the super fine mist leaves your hair soft, shiny, and silky to the touch. It’s pretty amazing. I referred to it as “Marie’s magic hairspray” all weekend long.

Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15

Oil-free, all-day wear so you’ll have soft-matte, even-looking skin without having to pile on powder throughout the day, this is Bobbi’s soft-matte “sequel” to our (now discontinued) Oil-Free Finish Foundation. Sponge-like powders absorb excess oil on the surface of the skin, while emollients lock in moisture to ensure skin remains perfectly balanced. Transfer-resistant formula helps create a barrier against heat and humidity for 8 hours of wear so makeup stays in place. Perfect for oily and normal/combination skin.


When I ordered some products from Sephora a few weeks ago, I received a free sample of Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation SPF 15. I’m not typically a fan of foundation because it usually feels thick and heavy on my skin (I’m much more of a tinted moisturizer-type gal), but my skin broke out really bad last week, and I needed some extra coverage, so I tried the sample. I was pleasantly surprised because it covered all of my blemishes and dark spots, but it didn’t feel heavy on my skin at all. A couple of days later, I went to Nordstrom and bought the full-size product. (FYI: My shade is Natural Tan.)

Quick tip: The sales associate at Nordstrom told me that you use less foundation if you apply it with a brush. For $46, this stuff better last me for many months!

Fekkai Salon Technician Color Care Rapid Results Moisture Mask

Rich and rapid, this mask submerges hair in humectants and extracts to revive just-colored condition and silkiness. All with colorlock protection. Now with advanced Intensive Anti-Fade Color Complex, this self-defense system contains powerful natural UV shield Galanga Root and provides long lasting color brilliance.


I don’t even know where to begin with this one. It’s simply amazing”” incredibly moisturizing, lightweight, and leaves your hair shiny and soft. It has totally changed my hair for the better. Just go buy it. FYI: Nordstrom sells it.

Maybelline Line Stiletto Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner

Maybelline Line Stiletto Ultimate Precision Liquid Eyeliner is a liquid liner that allows you the ultimate control to create any line you want! Elongates your lash line to shape and define eyes like never before. Flexible felt tip glides on smoothly for the most precise control. No tugging. No dragging. All day wear up to 8 hours.


I’m terrible at applying makeup. I feel like I skipped over the stage in life where you learn about makeup, so I pretty much have no idea what I am doing. With that said, this eyeliner makes me feel like I have a clue! It’s easy to apply and the flexible tip glides smoothly, so even people like me can draw a straight line and not make a mess.

Bobbi Brown Oil Control Lotion SPF 15

Ideal for normal-to-oily and combination skins. Oil Control Lotion SPF 15 is a lightweight, hydrating formula that keeps skin looking smooth and shine-free. Provides a soft matte finish and ensures smooth makeup application.


This is the best face lotion I’ve found”” and I’ve tried a lot of different ones! My skin is normally pretty oily, but I get dry patches on my forehead and chin, so I need a lotion that is moisturizing, but not too heavy. This one is lightweight and hydrating at the same time. Basically, it’s the best of both worlds.

What beauty products are you loving right now?



  1. I love Bobbi! And I was told that her oil control lotion had been discontinued. Now I’ll have to go stock up. Her foundation brush is amazing. It’s pricey, but I’ve had the same one for years. I wash it once a month in warm water and baby shampoo.

  2. the fekkai color mask is amazing! it really works well. i also use that bobbi brown foundation and it’s another great product. these are some good picks!
