Long time, no blog! Well, long for me anyways. Whenever I’m struggling with something, I sort of shut down and my blog takes the biggest hit. It’s unacceptable and I need to get better about showing up even when I don’t necessarily feel like it. I’m totally okay, just dealing with some personal things that everyone has to at some point. However, this space brings me a lot of joy and whenever I step away, I realize how much I really do miss…and need it!

With that said, just because I haven’t been posting, doesn’t mean I haven’t been doing anything! 🙂 When I started my blog, my favorite thing to do was share affordable beauty products that may not have been on your radar! I highlight some of the key players often…Maybelline, Revlon, L’Oreal – but a new brand has stolen my heart. I’ve showcased their products pretty recently (in this post), but as the weeks go on, I find myself consistently reaching for them over any others. So what is this magical makeup?

Drumroll please… Profusion Cosmetics! I absolutely adore their makeup and I promise I’m not just saying that. It’s been a while since I’ve been this impressed with a line. Before I start rattling off all the reasons you need some Profusion products in your life, let me clarify that I obviously haven’t tried everything in their collection. I’ve tested two shadow palettes, their conceal & contour kit, some of their blushes, a couple lip products, and a few brushes! All of which have been FAB.

My pre-Profusion life was oblivious to the magic of color correcting, and thanks to their Pro Conceal & Contour kit, it has become one of my favorite things to do. Their cream products are very easy to work with and provide great coverage. Their powder products are top notch; highlights, contours, bronzers, blushes, and shadows are incredible. Soft, matte, pigmented, buildable, and blendable – I’m obsessed.

But what I really love about their palettes is that the larger ones come with brushes; and I’m not talking about the crummy brushes you usually toss upon opening. These brushes are light, fluffy, and make all the difference with your application. Honestly, I prefer them to my regular set…especially the shadow brushes!

Now if that didn’t sell you, the very best thing about Profusion is that all of their makeup is ridiculously affordable! We’re talking $20 or less… and it’s all available at Target (because we all need another reason to love Target). I recently got my hands on their Blush and Mixed Metals Peach palette and think they’re beyond gorgeous for Spring. Check out the really easy look I created with them on YouTube. 🙂

Now, I haven’t done a giveaway in a LONG while and since I’m clearly smitten with these goodies, I want to give a few to you guys! I’m going to be sending THREE lucky winners the Mixed Metals Peach palette! Entering is super easy, just follow the instructions below. I’m going to leave it open for one week. 🙂
