My Latest Obsession

So, right on up there with plumping lip glosses, I have always been fascinated with long eyelashes.  Even if you have a completely bare face, if you put on some lengthening mascara, you look put together.  They're Real mascara by Benefit claims:
  • 94% saw dramatic length and volume
  • 90% saw base-to-tip curl
  • 94% saw visible lift
  • 100% saw long-wearing results
So, naturally, I had to run out and get it the day it came out (end of August). I've been using it for about a month now and have gotten so many compliments on my lashes.  The price is a bit steep ($22) but it's worth every penny.  
 I LOVE!  One coat and you are good to go!  For a false eyelash look, apply 2-3 coats (do not allow drying time in between applications).  Here's a great before and after picture I found.

Go get you some!  Buy here!

Top 3 Favorite Lipglosses

Hey there!

At any given point, you can reach in my purse and find about eight different lipglosses.  It's an issue and I'm working on it :)  I'm going to give you my top three favorites that have been found due to lots of trial and error!

1:) NARS Lipgloss

This is Kim Kardashian's signature look lipgloss (in the shade of Turkish Delight).  They are super pigmented and creamy.  They come in tons of colors!  My favorite colors are Turkish Delight (Pale pink, nude) and Orgasm (pink with gold tint).   

2.)  Bare Escentuals Buxom Lips
Lord KNOWS I love me a plumping lip gloss and these really do make my lips look bigger!  They come in lotsof different colors and are free of parabens and other harmful ingredients.  Melanie is probably my favorite color -- a warm bright pink and looks great on everyone.

3.)  MAC Cremesheen Glass
Ob-sessed. They’re ultra creamy and pigmented, kind of like liquid lipstick.   These aren't as sticky as MAC's lipglasses. love it. My favorite color for fall is Double Dare--mauve-ish.

Hope this helps :)  Back to work for me.  Have a wonderful week guys.
