Beauty products worth looking into.

I absolutely love beauty products. I've always loved them, as in way back when! As I grow older, I love them even more. Below are products I love and frequently purchase, along with others I'd like to try.

A little pricey but I hear it's worth the coin. Not something you'll likely roll across at your neighborhood drugstore. I had to do some digging to see where I could purchase it.  I don't think I could get it anywhere in Memphis, this would have to be an online purchase.  It's a little funny to me to consider spending that much money on something so small.  But...considering what it does perhaps it could be worth it.  There's nothing worse than a badly chapped lip.

At this price it should be something you give everyone you know! What a steal. I hear it's better than some of the high dollar bronzers. For sure will be something I'll pick up next time I'm at Walgreen's or CVS. 

I bought two of these around Thanksgiving and I really love them.  Probably one of my very favorite lip products ever.  I have it in a hot pink and in a bright red.  Wearing colors like this are sometimes dangerous because they sure can bleed. Having your lip product go all over your face isn't never desirable. This stains where it's put, stains appropriately and has a lovely bit of moisture throughout the time it's one (which is a long time by the way).  Glad that this comes in several colors! Also available at in Memphis at Joseph. This isn't one I wear on a daily basis (to school for example) but it sure is nice to have when you get all gussied up!

I've used this foundation on and off for about 2-3 years. I really like the amount of coverage it offers and I also think it smells really good.  Something that's that close to your nose should smell nice, ya know? Available on line and at most department stores. 

This is a new product to me in the last year. I went to buy a new bottle of my favorite foundation, mentioned above, and this was mentioned to me as a complimentary product.  Emphasis on complimentary, it sure is nice! Plus, sometimes I think there should be some products you wear together that are from the same line.  These two products are a little bit more expensive, but if you're going to spend money spend money on the skin care types of items.  Having bad foundation can really wreck your day, all the things under it...that goes double! 

Yes, this is the 3rd Chanel product I'm listing.  I don't use all of their products, but these are the ones I really like.  Their nail polish is amazing. I've bought the $3 version before and practically by the time the polish's chipping off.  This polish stays on my fingers for at least 6 days.  And that's through playing the piano many hours a day along with all the other things my fingers encounter.  Bottom line, another product worth the coin! Available at most department stores. 

When I was a teenager I got into the habbit of buying new mascara every few weeks.  There's something about this product that makes me not want to use it for very long.  I keep it probably about 6 weeks at the most.  As a result of this, I'm not willing to shell about $30 that often on new mascara. 
I've used several different drugstore brands and completely commit to this one. It's just great. And at that price is worth the frequent purchase. This product also comes off easily. So those nights I don't have the stamina to do a big facewash/mask song and dance...this comes off quite easily. 

Buying new lipstick is one of my favorite things to do.  I already have 2 other lip products on this post so that should be a testament that I love them so. This one is new, I just bought the first one about a week ago and so far I LOVE IT!  This is an easy drugstore purchase, one you could find practically anywhere. My favorite colors so far are Berry Smoothie and Cupcake. Easy to throw in my purse and put on at any time of the day. Nothing fancy. 

Best invention since sliced bread. I've had one of these for about 2 years and I love this thing. I read about them for quite awhile before I made the leap and bought one, but I've been very happy with the way it keep my skin clean. I'm very acne prone and also sort of lazy about washing my face.  This was a bit of a trick for me...made it sort of fun ya know? They are best used with liquid face soap without any beads in it. It's nice to have the face wash in a pump by the sink, then you're ready to go. 
If you've having any skin troubles, I suggest reading some reviews and trying one of these! 

I bought the first bottle of this in September. I try to vary my face wash a little bit. I go back and forth between 2-3 of them.  This bottle has lasted for 4 months and is just splendid. My only "deal-io" with this product is that I don't like that it comes in this tube.  I'd rather it come in a bottle with a pump.  But I guess that's a #firstworldproblem and nothing legitimate. 

My very favorite nail color period the end. I posted the Chanel polish as it is a lovely consistency.  This is my favorite color.  There's a difference, *chuckle*.  Essie polishes are available everywhere these days.  It used to be a hard one to get, but's all over.  Another favorite is Ballet Slippers.

Do you have favorite beauty products? Do you use any of these? What are some that you like and are in your favorites category?

  1. Okay, my dear. You are married to a brass player. Chapped lips = their worst enemy! Whatever he does to keep those smackers soft, that's the winning ticket. (And I bet it's a lot less pricey, though probably not as pretty.) :-)
