Four For You!

Hello, loves!

Today I have another round of Four For You!  Here are some of my latest obsessions:

1. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera

_DSC0175

It’s here!  I have been dying to get my hands on one of these instant cameras for a while now, so when I found one on sale for just $70, I knew it was time to pounce!  This little guy will definitely come in handy on my vacation this month, and will also help me capture some cool snaps of my year abroad.  Side note: I haven’t actually used the camera yet because I totally forgot to order film with it (lol) but I can’t wait to try it out!

2. Baublebar Emoticharm Bracelets

I am head over heels for these emoji-inspired bracelets — how cute are they?!  I got one of these (the heart-eyed one) for my birthday and was so obsessed with it, I decided to order two more (the kissy-face and the smirk) to have a little set!  They’re so fun, and I got them on sale for just $10 each.  These are definitely my fave pieces of jewelry so far this summer!

3. Revlon Nail Polish in #771 “Clear”

Okay, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect base/top coat for a while now, and I’m happy to say I’ve finally found it!  I cannot get over this Revlon polish — it’s truly a lifesaver!  I can use it both under and over my nail polish without a problem, and it dries super fast, so doing my nails no longer requires setting aside half of my day to allow enough dry time (thank God!).  It also keeps my nails looking super shiny, which I love, and it doesn’t get any weird creases or bubbles.  It helps my nails stay chip-free longer, too!  Ugh, I just can’t say enough how much I love this — and for $4.99, you can’t beat it!

4. L’Oreal Paris Collection Exclusive Lipstick in #600 “Doutzen’s Nude”

_DSC0229

Confession: I 100% copied my older sister on this one!  She had this lipstick for a while and I totally fell in love with it, so I bought one of my own…and I’m so happy I did!  It’s the perfect subtle light pink shade, especially for my fair skin, and it’s great for the summer months when I keep my makeup lighter.  I can swipe this on quickly for a natural look and be good to go!  It also doesn’t dry my lips out, like some lipsticks, which is obviously also a plus!

So there you go…four for you, Brenn Coco, you go, Brenn Coco!

XOXO,

Brenna

Four For You!

Hello, loves!

I am (finally!) sharing another round of Four For You today!  Have a look at my latest faves!

1. Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

_DSC0048

My prayers have been answered!  I have been blessed/cursed with the straightest hair.  It’s great when I want a sleek style, but when I want a little texture, my hair sometimes won’t have it.  This spray has been a game-changer!  I’ve found it works best for me when I wash my hair at night, spritz this throughout my damp or dry hair, and braid it.  I’ll wake up, take the braid out, spritz a bit more, and style it with my fingers.  Ta-da!  Perfect beach waves.

2. Real Techniques Bold Metals Brushes 

_DSC0052

Okay, someone pinch me.  I have been long overdue for some new face brushes but could not find any that seemed worthy — until I stumbled upon these in Ulta!  I went for the Arched Powder (#100) and the Tapered Blush (#300) brushes and I am in love.  Not only are they excellent brushes, they’re totally glam, too.

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Primer

_DSC0057

This has been my go-to primer for a while now, but I’ve just started to really appreciate it (better late than never!).  Seriously, I love this primer.  It helps my makeup last all day, keeps me matte as promised, and most importantly, doesn’t give my face that slimy feeling other primers do.  So, I guess what I’m trying to say is thanks, Rimmel Stay Matte.  You’re a true homie.

4. Essie’s “Play Date” Nail Color

_DSC0054

I love a good Essie.  This purple color is a fun way to incorporate my favorite color into my beauty routine!  It’s one of my absolute favorites for the spring & summer months.

There you go…four for you, Brenn Coco, you go, Brenn Coco!

XOXO,

Brenna

Four For You!

Hello, loves!  Here is the first feature of Brenn Coco…drumroll, please!

Four For You will (hopefully!) be a weekly feature where I select four items of any sort that I’m super into at the moment.

So, without further ado, here are Four For You! (yay for accidental rhymes)

1. Essie’s “Borrowed & Blue” Nail Color

_DSC0019

I picked up this nail color at the Lilly for Target pop-up shop in Bryant Park last week and I am officially obsessed!  It’s the perfect light blue that I’ve been searching for.  If you’re looking to get your hands on this polish (or rather, get this polish on your hands!) don’t wait — it’s limited edition!

2. Lush Popcorn Lip Scrub

_DSC0022

Okay, so I know I’m fashionably late to this party.  But seriously, I’m not at all surprised this is a holy grail item for so many people!  This scrub is super effective, lasts a really long time, and tastes so yummy.  My only regret is that I waited so long to try it!

3.  Kate Spade “Brenna” Sunglasses

_DSC0026

Alright, so I may be a bit biased on these based on the name alone.  But I was so hyped when my sister surprised me with these as a gift — thanks, Melissa!  As with all things from my girl Kate, they’re playful and fun, and perfect for spring!

4. Maybelline’s ColorSensational Lip Color in Petal Pink

_DSC0021

I actually got this product unknowingly.  I had ordered some jewelry from Baublebar during their Rebel Bloom collab with Maybelline and was sent this lipstick as a free gift!  Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised (who wouldn’t love a free lipstick?).  Truthfully, I probably never would’ve picked this out in stores, so I’m so so happy Maybelline picked it for me!

And there you have it…four for you, Brenn Coco, you go, Brenn Coco!

XOXO,

Brenna
