Batiste Dry Shampoo - For Brunettes
I love this dry shampoo! So much so, that even when my hair is clean, sometimes I use it for the volume. It has a nice smell, and doesn't give that white cast to my hair. I can prolong my wash for several day. I try to not wash my hair more than 3 times a week at most. I spray it at the roots, let it sit for a minute or two, then I rub it at the scalp. The only thing you have to be careful with is your hands after using it (if you use the one for brunettes). The shampoo has a brown tint, so wash your hands afterwards. You will even see the brown come out in the shower, when shampooing. They have a good selection to choose from. You can purchase at Walgreens, Ulta, some Kroger, and from time to time, I've seen it at TJ Maxx. They retail for around $8.
Trend Tips Nail Lacquer Sephora By O.P.I
Another product that I'm loving! I'm so happy I found these. The first application was tricky. By the time I did my second application, I had cut my time in half. It takes some getting used to, but they are beautiful and last for 2 weeks! They never chipped. I removed them because I had so much grow out. These are also easy to remove. Just use regular polish remover. You can buy these at Sephora. They retail for $12.
Cover Girl Clean Whipped Creme Makeup
I have been using this foundation for a few weeks. I have others, but have only grabbed this one. That says a lot! It has medium to full coverage with a satin to matte finish. It is very light weight and long wearing. Cover Girl did a great job on this one! It retails for $10 - $12.
MAC Quad - Mystery, Satin Taupe, Soft Brown, and Creme Brûlée
If you aren't familiar with MAC products, this is how it works. When it comes to eye shadows, except for a few collections that they do throughout the year, you pick your own colors to put in a quad compact or larger compact. You can get them as singles in a case if you like, as well. I chose these colors because I just wanted a neutral everyday palette, that I could create many different looks with. That's exactly what it does, which is why I used it so much. You can try on your colors before purchasing, which is nice, and the sales associates are usually quite knowledgeable on their products.
Milani Color Statement Lipstick - Nude Creme
This is a great year round lipstick. I don't like all nudes, and a lot of lipsticks that claim to be nude really aren't. This one isn't too pink or too brown. It doesn't wash you out or make you look dead. I grabbed it so much this month. I have liked every lipstick that I have tried from this line. They retail for $5.50.
Live Love Dew Sheer Dew Face Cream, Intense Dew Face Cream & Hydrodew Eye Cream.
I have used these every single day and night since I got them. I love them! They feel so good on the skin. I actually take my makeup off earlier, just so I can put these on! I use the sheer dew in the morning, under my makeup, along with the Hydrodew Eye Cream. I use the Intense Dew and Hydrodew Eye Cream after my nightly skin care routine. They can be purchased at livelovedew.com. They retail for $15 a piece. I did a full review on these at http://yourbeautyplace.blogspot.com/2013/09/review-live-love-dew-hydrodew-eye-cream.html and http://yourbeautyplace.blogspot.com/2013/08/review-live-love-dew-whole-natural-skin.html
Nivea Lip Butter - Raspberry Rose Kiss
My lips tend to get dry pretty easily. I wanted a moisturizing balm that wasn't waxy like a chapstick. I really like the moisturizer that this lip butter provides. I have been using it every night before bed, and under my lipstick. It makes my lips feel and look so much better. These retail for $2.99.
