What I'm Loving Lately

So I found some new makeup products that I LOVE recently, like seriously, I love them and don't know how I made it this far in my life without them, and I felt it only right to shout it to the blogworld!

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. Check out all the other face products I've reviewed here.

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!!

  1. That color tattoo is amazing! I can't believe how well it stays on!

  2. I literally started using that mascara this morning and already love it!

  3. This is really weird but I use that exact masara and I used to use Smashbox foundation too (I now just use a cheapo version that's pretty good). I got a trial mascara called They're Real! And I'm gonna switch to that, but I do love that mascara too!

  4. That Falsies mascara used to be my faaaavvvvoorittteeee until I found the Mary Kay kind. I loved it! Also, you use latisse? Tell me all about it!!

  5. I love the color tattoos! I still have to use a primer underneath them just because I have the worlds oiliest eyelids--but I love the colors! And that mascara is my #1 fave--but I also have the worlds shortest/stubbiest eyelashes. Hah

  6. I LOVE Falsies! I thought I'd hate it, but it works great! OH, and just so you know...my box will be in the mail TOMORROW. Stupid post office on post is closed Mondays, and I can't make it there tomorrow!

  7. i barely use any makeup too. just concealer and a little blush and eyeliner..that's it. i literally get ready in under 3 minutes :)

  8. I've been thinking about trying that color tattoo, now I'll definitely have to get on that!

  9. I have mutant eyelashes because that stuff doesn't work for me! Everyone else loves it, though. I really need some time in Target to try new things so thanks for the eyeshadow rec!

  10. I've been wanting to try that color tattoo eye shadow for a while now but I keep picking it up and putting it back. I have no idea why. I'm very indecisive. haha

  11. I suck at make-up, I tried some new eye shadow the other day and looked like a raccoon. hahaha! I washed it off and put on my old stand by!
