Do you ask the MAGIC question?

image

Let me start by saying that Lancome products are divine!

The company’s beauty products are on the pricey side but worth every penny. Regardless of where you buy your beauty products, my number one suggestion for you is to ask the magic question!

 “DO YOU HAVE ANY SAMPLES?”

Last week, I ventured over to the Lancome counter, I asked the magic question and well, all the items in the above picture are the samples I received.

2 lipsticks: WANNABE (left) and PRETTY BURGUNDY (right)

1 Black/Noir High Definition Mascara

1 High Resolution Eye Cream

1 Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate Gel Cream

imageI was extremely excited about the two lipsticks! They both are two beautiful colors to add to my growing collection.

Next time you’re shopping for make up, stop at your nearest counter and ask the MAGIC QUESTION!!

If they have anything available, you will have wonderful products to try and possibly buy at a later date!

Which color would you wear?

I have been playing around in my mom’s make up for as far back I can remember. In highschool, I was given my first eyeshadow palette that I used for theatre purposes. When that palette ran out, I never got around to purchasing a new one. I used mini eyeshadow cases from avon, my local drugstores and cvs. This palette blows my old one out the water!!

Favorite Make up quickies

Image

My favorite Quick Make up items and Products: Brushes, an eye lash curler, mascara, eyeliners and foundation.

When I do use make up, I like to go for a more natural look.

Make up should enhance your features and make you feel beautiful in your own skin.

This picture above shows a few products I use. These items are my “make-up quickies.” I do have times where I take 5 years to put make up on, but I have been trying to find a way to be done in 8 minutes or less. For those who were thinking I should have said 5… I am still working on it!

FIT ME 350 by Mabelline and Mineralize SkinFinish Natural by M.A.C.

M.A.C products are simply amazing! The product shown is in the photograph is Mineralize Skinfinish Natural (Dark Deep) by M.A.C. Its one of my personal favorites because its light and when I do wear it, its almost as if I have nothing on! It creates a more softened look and gives my skin a glow effect, similar to bronzer. This product is definitely a summer necessity! Lets face it no one wants to deal with runny make up!! You can wear this product by itself and be content!

FIT Me 350 by Maybelline is another good make up product. The color shown in the photo is Caramel. The product is a foundation that blends very well, doesn’t feel sticky on my skin and also feels extremely light. I have never been a fan of foundation but this is one that I use around my eyes, above my upper lip and on my chin. I have not been able to find a color that matches my exact skin tone in this product, so I use this as my highlighting addition.

I don’t always use the two products together but when I do, my skin looks amazing!The other four items that are shown in the first photograph are Cover Girl brow and eye makers pencil/crayon (Midnight Brown), E.L.F Liquid Eyeliner (Black), Lash Out Mascara by LOREAL (Blackest Black), and Liquif’eye metallic eye liner pencil by Milani. All of these products were used it create the look in my final photograph. The lipstick I’m wearing is Hot Toddy by BRUCCI.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MAKE-UP QUICKIES???

Cover Girl LipSlicks Lip Gloss Review

Tired of using lip products that are thick and have to constantly be re-applied?

Cover Girl’s Lip Slicks Lip Gloss is just for You!

I recently purchased this product and MY OH MY, ladies, this product is essential to have in your make up bag! I usually go for nude glosses and moisturizing chapsticks like, EOS, regular Blistex or Burt’s Bee’s. However, the Cover Girl Lip Slicks Lip Gloss will give you a chance to choose from a variety of colors, it is long lasting, it is very moisturizing and more importantly it exfoliates your lips for a smoother feel. Another great thing about this product is that it provides the boldness of lipstick, yet it’s not a lipstick.  I guarantee, you will not have to worry about any thickness, etc. Look for it at your local beauty supply or department store.
