I’m going to try and make these a weekly post because they are fun for me! I typically use powder blush but do like this color stick/satins for long lasting wear. Also I like that it gives me a more natural flushed look.
BARGAIN: e.l.f cosmetics are really a great bargain and are pretty decent quality. I will say that I’ve never used this all over color stick but have friends that really enjoy it. I have used other products by them and have been satisfied. Seriously for $1 it’s worth a try!
BROWSE: I absolutely ADORE this cheek stain by hourglass. I received a free sample from a promotion from Vogue awhile a back and instantly loved it. Rogue is the color I have and while the color looks super deep on the applicator it goes on a nice sheer rosy red. I recommend only turning a half click to get just a small amount of product because a little bit of this goes a long way. The price is pretty steep at $38 but if you feel like splurging you won’t be disappointed. (Yes I realize this isn’t an all over color stick like the other two but it’s in the same family and it truly is awesome)
BUY: Argan Oil is really all the rage right now. Josie Maran is really a leader in Argan Oil based products. I heard of Josie Maran from my mom who is an avid QVC watcher. About a year ago I purchased her all over color stick and even with using it often it barely shows any use! Not only do I use it as a blush but as a nice lipstick that adds some more depth to my natural lip color. For a $22 investment you will really be getting a long lasting multi use product.
So recently I’ve become a bit obsessed with painting my nails. I have no patience so waiting for them to dry isn’t my favorite thing in the world not to mention just about every time I paint my nails something happens (kids wake up from nap/phone rings/etc) and I end up ruining them and having to start all over….but I digress. I wanted to share my picks for polish.
BARGAIN: Sinful Nail Polish is only $1.99 at Walgreens and it comes in a ton of colors. The brush is nice and wide so it covers almost my whole nail in one swipe. While some colors aren’t super pigmented and require multiple coats I still think its a great polish for the price.
BROWSE: Butter London is $15! I will confess I have yet to try it because I can’t bring myself to spend that kind of money on nail polish BUT I have heard nothing but great things about the quality and pigmentation of polish. Ulta constantly has $3.50 off $10 coupons so maybe one day I will get myself a bottle!
BUY: Essie is my go to polish brand. I absolutely love love love it. The cheapest I’ve ever found it is $7.79 at Target but it typically is around $8. The above color Go Overboard is one of my favs and if I can’t make up my mind what color to paint my nails this is my fall back color. They constantly have new color collections coming out and a have beautiful selection of nudes.
