Smashbox fun lip gloss

Get a shiny pink pout all your own! This intuitive silky gloss reacts with your personal skin chemistry to transform from clear into your own custom shade of pink.

 I tried this lip gloss on at Ulta a while back and my husband said "that is really pretty, you should buy that."  How nice of him, I still didn't buy it.  I felt $22 was too much to spend.  However, Sephora has it on sale for $10 a tube (limit 2).  So I picked one up and I love it.  It is very shiny and it transforms into a berry pink on me, it's subtle and not too pink (and I love pink).  It is very moisturizing, not at all sticky and the pink stays on the lips for a long time.  I just love it and wish I had grabbed two tubes.  I think it would make a great little gift too.

I love the Smashbox Intuitive O-Glow cheek color as well!  It gives you a nice pink flush.  I want it (add that to my mile long list of wants)!  It would be perfect to keep in your purse for touch-ups since you just use your fingers.  It gives you a really natural pink flush.  I try it on almost every trip to Ulta or Sephora and it's gorgeous!

Best powder ever!!! Make Up For Ever

I ran out of this powder today and took a trip to SEPHORA!!!  My 3 year old loved it and came home with her nails done and blush and lipstick on.  She insisted on wearing her butterfly wings to the store and her tutu.  Needless to day, I love having a girly girl!

This powder is the best powder on earth!  I wouldn't want to live without it.  It helps set the makeup and keeps concealer in place.  The best part about it is that it makes your face look so smooth.  It fills in pores and doesn't settle into fine lines ( yes I have them, wish I could get back my 19 year old skin).   It gets rid of the oily shine so it's nice and matte. It is white, but doesn't leave a white film.  I usually don't put it on my cheeks because I like them to look more dewy.  I apply it with the kabuki brush and it is so soft, it's like silk.

    Next time you need powder- get this- you won't be sorry!

For all you cheapies out there you can try ELF's microfinish powder, it is $6 and I have not tried it because I stand by Make Up For Ever's.
