Recent Beauty Buys

Just a few things I've added to my beauty arsenal lately...

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polish //  I have several of these polishes, and these and the Sally Hansen ones in those squarish bottles are my favorite. They seem to stay chip-free so much longer than their pricier competitors. I added a black and white bottle to my copious collection

Bumble & bumble Thickening Hairspray // I rarely buy Bumble products because they seem like such an extravagant splurge, but that doesn't stop me from being obsessed with them. I love they way they smell, and when I've bought them in the past, it's been nothing but love. I spray this on my damp hair, it gives my fine hair some lift.

Tokyo Milk Parfum in 'Everything & Nothing' // After a handful of walk-by spritzings at Co-Star, I decided to bite the bullet and buy this easy-to-wear everyday scent. PS It also comes in a yummy lotion.

Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Skin Tint SPF 20 // My trusty stand-by that I have restocked yet again. I won't be without it. It's the best.

MAC Lipstick in 'Candy Yum Yum' //  Figured it's the perfect spring shade....bright, cheery and bold.

Estee Lauder Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator // Desperately trying to take some of the piggy pink tone of our my skin, and hoping this magic potion will help reduce the red and help my freckles take a chill pill.

Embryolisse Concentrated Lait Cream //  Like I mentioned here, if it's good enough for's good enough for me. I've been putting this on morning and night, and it's pretty good. It can get overly dewy looking if you don't give it enough time to soak in....but that's my only complaint so far.

Any new beauty products that you are loving lately? Spill the deets!

  1. I love when other bloggers share their beauty favs - usually become I'm so damn clueless half the time (and stick w/ my daily boring routine). had I still had my long hair I would be all over that thickening spray!!

  2. Oh fun! Thanks for the reviews! FYI on your note about skin tone, I suffer from roseate and am therefore no stranger to wanting to reduce pink or red from my face. I was recently suggested CC cream, and just bought the Smashbox version. I love the texture of it, and the redness of my cheeks is noticeably reduced!


Thanks for leaving a sweet little note...I love reading them triple max tons!
