My alter ego, miss spendaholic avoid-reality, has reared her ugly head this past month and forced me to buy loads of new things. The downside? I’m eating ramen noodles until Halloween. The upside? I have found some awesome products that’ll keep me happy for a while!
Bobbi Brown Corrector
I’ve never really found a product that covers my under eye circles and looks completely natural. Either the coverage isn’t enough or the color looks grey, white, yellowish, or just plain off. This miracle product actually covers my circles and looks totally natural. I have it in dark peach, with looks orange in the pan. It seemed so odd to put orange under my eyes, but it does the job! My only complaint is that it gets a little cakey without powder to set it. But hey- I’ll deal!
L’Occitane Shea Lip Balm
I need lip balm. All the time. But I hate shiny, wet looking lip balm. So i set out to find a super moisturizing, matte, yummy lip balm. And yay because it does exist! This stuff is my dream. It smells like sweet lemon, is nice and thick, and leaves my lips looking natural, not like I covered them in grease. The only downside is that it costs $10. Holy highway robbery, right? I’m sad to admit I’ll keep paying this ridiculous price unless I find something cheaper that looks exactly the same.
MAC lipstick in Tribalist
I love the dark lipstick trend this winter. So I ordered a lipstick online called “almost black.” Well, that was bad. shudder. I went to MAC to try out Cyber, their well-known dark shade. And it was nice, but Tribalist was a touch lighter and had more brown, less purple. It’s my official dark lipstick.
Living Proof Conditioner and Styling Creme for Coarse/Thick hair
Well wow. Just wow. I bought a trial size of the hair creme and thought, this stuff is pretty good. I’m digging it. Then I ran out. Then I realized that life without this stuff was like life without sunlight, pizza, and zombie movies. I just got the conditioner and it’s equally awesome.
