Benefit They’re Real! Mascara

ImageOK, everyone listen up, because this mascara will dominate any other mascara you have ever bought.  I have been using this product for over a year, and I am still addicted to it.  Before this product, I used drugstore brand mascara that didn’t appear to be anything glorious.  I clearly wasn’t choosing the right ones.  This brought me to think, “How different can mascaras be from one another?”  I know.  I look back on this and think, “What was wrong with me?”  It’s embarrassing to think about…  Since then, I have tried many other high-end mascaras and none of them seemed to make the cut.

Well after I went through various mascaras and found my perfect match, I haven’t let it go.  This product thickens and lengthens your lashes and is a must have on a night out.  It will totally transform the way your eyes look.  It makes it look like you have more lashes than you do, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want that?


MAC Huggable Lip Color

So tonight I went to the mall to pay my Victoria’s Secret bill.  On my way in, I passed all the make-up counters in Nordstrom.  Now the problem with me is after I’ve walked passed those beautiful, lit-up counters, I can’t get them out of my head.  I started to think, “I’ll just go to MAC.  Maybe if I’m just around it, I’ll feel satisfied enough to walk away.”  The addict in me tries to find any reason to justify my visitations.  I saw the beautiful new poster of the brand new Huggable Lip Colors, and the color on the right of that photo is just gorgeous.  It reminds me of a Tom Ford lipstick I’ve had on my list, and I just have to try it on.  After the salesman cleans it for me, I figure it can’t hurt.  He says, “Oh my gosh.  That color is gorgeous on you.  You have to get it.”  I can’t help but think, “You are so right.  I do.”

Closed LipstickWhat A Feeling!

This lipstick is perfect for the winter.  It is super hydrating and melts into your lips.  The color I bought is called “What a Feeling!” and I can’t help but think of that song by Irene Cara from Flashdance.  The amount of pigment is perfect for everyday wear–not too much, not too little.  There are 12 gorgeous colors to choose from–nudes, corals, and vibrant reds and fuchsias.  As for the packaging, I love it.  The graphite color and metallic shine is super sleek and gorgeous.  This lipstick is a must have for the winter.  The colors are spectacular, and the texture is perfect for this time of year.  I already have “Love Beam” on my list the next time I “attempt” to stay away from the makeup counter.
