Latest Beauty Finds

You may not know this about me... but I am a total beauty-junkie. I wouldn't say I have a problem, but Tim is starting to get concerned about storage. [He's yet to discover the drawers I have below the bed... Shhh!] I love learning about ingredients and then trying things out to see if they live up to the hype. Unfortunately- most of them don't! I have pretty sensitive skin and I'm nit-picky about makeup. While I'll try any beauty fad under the sun, I will dislike most of them.

I recently stumbled upon four products that are total game changers.  FIRST... I've finally discovered a red lipstick that doesn't make me feel like I'm a 6 year old who got into my grandma's lipstick. [That happened.] It might help that the cap has a cute little gemstone... but Dolce & Gabbana's "Rubino" is creamy, flattering, and a new essential for a night out. For mascara, I'm loving Dolce & Gabbana's Passion Eyes Mascara in Nero 1. It makes my lashes full just like Bambi. And the best part? This mascara doesn't flake! That's a miracle in itself.

The last time I got a facial, the sun damage around my eyes was brought to my attention. Whoops! I needed to add an eye cream to my routine quick, and I tried out four different kinds before landing on It's Potent by Benefit. It is very lightweight and gives me a feeling of under eye "replenishment," which is weird sounding but the only way I can describe it. It's gentle and I wish all my skincare products made my face feel this way.

Lastly, the Perfect Ten palette by Bare Minerals is EVERYTHING. It's got 10 gorgeous shades- eyes, lips, and cheeks- and comes in a cute little case. The colors included are so flattering for day or night, and I've gotten three separate compliments on my makeup lately... which is a LOT considering I work from home.

Now it's your turn- any beauty products you're loving lately??
