Just some thoughts about products and other beauty related things kicking around in my head lately…
1. I am goo goo gaga crazy over liquid liner pens lately. The ease of liner application positively life changing – they’re just so much easier to apply than traditional inkwell liquid liners, in my opinion. The Milani Color Play Felt-Tip Liquid Pens are what I’m grabbing for the most, and I adore how they look so much more complicated than they actually are.
2. Secret color confession – at one point in my life I want to have pretty lavender hair, a la Kelly Osborne. This look is way too much maintenance for this stage of my life, but I adore anyone who carries colored hair off well.
This wonder gel makes my tired under eye are feel so great and my general eye area looks taut and refreshed, as well. The main ingredients in this wonder gel are cucumber, green tea, Caffeic Acid, and Vitamin C. Definitely a repurchase, which is more than I can say for anything that was in the second Glossybox.
4. I never fashioned myself a beach loving gal, but my son Andre (who has now decided his name should really be Morgan) is nuts over our local baby beach.
There are no waves, so it’s perfect for kids and parents. I purchased a $10 boogie board and he’s been having the time of his life. We’ve both been using Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Sunblock SPF 60 and it’s wonderful. Except for those areas on my back I can’t reach, which are currently in lobster skin territory.
5. Speaking of sunscreen, it’s important to wear some on your lips, so look for a sunscreen that has a spf. Carmex lip balm in a tube is better than I ever thought it would be. Different than the original Carmex, which I love in it’s own right, but carries the same spirit of the perrenial favorite. I love this balm and want to stockpile the Vanilla scent.
What are some of your recent beauty finds? I’d love to know!
