Good Afternoon, Beauties!

Even though I am a self-confessed make-up junkie and girly-girl, I realized that I have not really talked about make-up on this blog! Unnaceptable.

So what a better topic for Friday, right?! Below I will share with you some of my current favorite products and you can comment and share with me yours. I love trying new stuff :)


First, let's talk about foundation primer.


From the first moment I discovered primers, I have been obsessed with all the various kinds of textures and types out there. I have tried many primers, but nothing comes even close to Prime Time from Bare Escentuals. The bottle only contains 1 ounce of primer. I know this is a shock specially when you see the $21 price tag. HOWEVER a little goes a loooooonnnnggggggg way. And literally one pump or even a little less than that will cover your entire face. The primer dries super fast and leaves my skin feeling satiny smooth. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!! And if you have not tried it out, you MUST! It will change your life :)


Mascara



I'm a mascara addict! I'm always happy to try out new products, but my favorite one is Lumene's Blueberry Curl Mascara. Blueberry Curl contains blueberry seed oil which is rich in Vitamins A and E plus fatty acids that nourish and protect lashes from environmental pollution and UV radiation. This mascara makes your lashes look pretty while adding strength and maintaining health. I've been using Blueberry Curl for a couple of weeks with excellent results. My lashes look longer, fuller, and separated with this product. The innovative brush makes sure I don't get any nasty clumps. This stuff rocks!



Pearly Whites

I love Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal. The new Advanced Seal strips are thicker than strips we've used in the past. And because they're more substantive, they're a little easier to apply. And once they're on, they feel secure. In the past, I've had strips slip off mid-treatment. These strips on the other hand will stay put, just like they say they will. And you really can drink water and talk normally while wearing them.

After just three days, my teeth were noticeably whiter. I hadn't whitened my teeth in quite some time, so my pearly whites were in need of a good brightening. Now, my teeth look lovely and white, just the way they should be!



Blush

I’m a big fan of flushed cheeks — they make me feel healthy, happy and bright! And aside from steamy make-out sessions or pinched cheeks, the way I get them is with the help of a good blush. :) I’m a big fan of Orgasm (no not that kind!:) the blush by Nars! This stuff is the best I have come across. It adds nice pinkish sheer and glow to your face. It also blends very well! Definitely worth trying out.


Lips
This stuff is amazing! It glosses up the shine & yet still feels comfortable. It doesn't make my lips feel overly sticky or gooped up like some glosses make me feel! And as an added bonus, hubs loves it too! Overall, this is a beauty bag must have!

Now that you know all of my beauty secrets, please share with me yours!
You know I love hearing from you, makeup moxies. Go ahead and post your comments :)

  16. I use to use BE everything. After a year I decided the price wasn't worth the price. (college kid here) So I switched to Mary Kay's mineral powder that covers a little better (I think). I have to admit though... I still use that primer! It's too good to let go of. lol
