A Few of My Favorite (Beauty) Things

We may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in this post.

1. Maybelline Shine Sensational Lip Gloss (in Berry Bella)- adds the perfect amount of color, plus it smells (and tastes!) amazing! I like to wear it with a smoky eye for a dramatic look.
2. Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum– conceals my fried ends and adds a subtle sheen without looking greasy
3. Redken Align 12 Styling Cream– reduces my blowdry time, smooths out my wavy hair, and makes my dry, unruly, straw-like locks feel silky soft. Seriously, this stuff is miraculous.
4. Benefit That Gal Skin Brightening Primer: makes my foundation go on smoothly, or makes my skin look dewy on days I decide not to wear foundation
5. Bare Minerals Foundation (in Medium Beige)- provides buildable coverage, but never looks cake-y. And it doesn’t cause breakouts when I (gasp!) go to bed without washing it off.
6. Batiste Hint of Color Dry Shampoo (in dark and deep brown)- seriously the best dry shampoo I’ve ever tried, and I’ve tried lots of them. On the can it says it the #1 seller in the U.K. I see why. This stuff adds tons of volume and texture, and can transform sweaty bangs into freshly-cleaned fringe in about 35 seconds. I swear by this stuff!
7. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey- this almost lipstick hasn’t met a complexion it didn’t like. Seriously, it looks good on everyone (at least everyone that I’ve seen wear it!)
8. Burberry Weekend Eau de Parfum: smells so delicious and fresh- I wear on dreary winter days because it reminds me of spring
9. Tarte Clay Translucent Finishing Powder: keeps me from looking shiny and helps my other makeup stay in place
10. Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara (in Glam Black- not pictured): This is my favorite mascara by far- I like it even better than the more expansive department-store brands I’ve tried.

    You can click on the link under the picture to buy it online. Or, if you prefer buying in store, I always buy mine at Ulta. I’ve seen the non-colored versions at Walgreens, too. Let me know if you still aren’t able to locate it. Hope you like it…I know you will!

    Where can you find the Batiste Dry Shampoo? This sounds like would be a fabulous product to have!
