I love this eyeshadow! I got it in Too Cool (white) and Barely Branded (a light bronzey color, goes with everything). It stays on well and it's buildable. I can make it light and barely there for work, but if I want it more vibrant at night, I can just use more. I usually use a brush to apply it, but you can use your finger too.
This mascara. Ahh! This is definitely my new favorite. You know I use Latisse, so my eyelashes are already pretty long, but when I wear this, WOW. People have noticed my eyelashes from across the room, and that is not an exaggeration! This is definitely the best mascara I've ever used! Check out all the other eye products I've reviewed here.
So I jump all over with foundations, and recently I've tried a few more, drugstore and expensive brands, and this is definitely one I am going to buy again. It matches my skin so well (I use 1.2, warm fair), and it blends so well with this Real Techniques Expert brush I got at Ulta (it feels like such an expensive brush but it was only $9!). I know this foundation is $42, so it's pretty expensive, but it's so worth it. Plus when you use a brush you don't need as much so I expect it will last me a long time.

I also asked my awesome Sidekicks to share their favorite products with you guys too, because when I find a new product I love, I want to tell everybody about it!
So I'm not much of a makeup girl. In all honesty, I didn't even own any real makeup until I was in college (I don't count the ugly Wet 'n' Wild lipsticks I bought for like a dollar in high school- you ALL know what I’m talking about). Even now- I rarely wear it unless we are going out for a fancy dinner or something. On the rare occasions I do my makeup- it's normally just a bit of eye shadow, liner and mascara. But there are a few beauty products I've been loving lately, mainly due to the dryness that winter causes. EOS lip balm has been a lifesaver and something I never leave home without. I thought it was just a lip balm- but it has worked wonders on my chapped lips! Plus it smells good and it's in that cute little container. My other go to has been Aveda Hand Relief. This is the most amazing moisturizer for dry winter hands. It doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy- but gloriously smooth and moisturized. And it has an awesome scent- nothing overpowering, just a little herbally/citrusy (obviously I suck at describing this- but I promise it awesome). Definitely two of my go to beauty products- especially in the winter!! -- Margaret at Life After Athens
Hello beautiful people! I'm Kay and I ramble and rant over on The Best Of Intentions. When Jess emailed me and asked what beauty product I was loving right now, I didn't even have to finish reading the email before I knew exactly what product I was going to tell her about! Mary Kay's Ultimate Mascara in black. I am a mascara SNOB! I've tried ridiculously, embarrassing expensive mascaras and I've tried cheap drugstore mascaras. Been there, done that. THIS mascara is the BEST and my new obsession! Highly, HIGHLY recommend!!
