Today I'm veering off course a bit to talk about makeup. You may not realize that I am a huge makeup junkie. I usually use a mix between department store and drugstore finds, but these three products are all available on the cheap.
1. When we got married I had my make-up done by a Bobbi Brown makeup artist. She introduced me to their gel liner, which I looooooved. It's pricey, and you really need to buy the brush to use it. Then Maybelline launched their version: EyeStudio Gel Liner. It's much smoother than Bobbi Brown's and even comes with a brush. All of this for $7.99! I may need to go back for the Eggplant color.
I heard about it from this beauty blogger.
Oh my goodness, I am slightly obsessed with watching her make-up tutorials on YouTube. I dare you to try to watch just one. :-) (Thank you, Megan, for introducing me to her.)
2. Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara is wonderful. I was skeptical of the brush. I tend to like a large, fluffy bristle brush. But I'm here to tell you that my lashes look longer than ever. You can really layer it on for extra length, just don't let it dry between coats.
3. Revlon ColorStay Lipglaze is ah-mazing. The colors are not only beautiful, but this truly lasts for hours and hours without drying out my lips. It has a slight shimmer, without looking sparkly. (Really, I'm too old for sparkle on my lips.) It has a lip gloss effect without being glossy...it's more creamy with shine. I kid you not, I ate a salad with this lipglaze and it did not come off. I would say it lasts about 6-8 hours. If you only buy one new product this Spring, this is it!
