I love makeup. I love trying new makeup products (especially lip gloss) and looking at rows and rows of product, like a kid in the candy store.
That's why Sephora is a dangerous place to put me because I rotate between feeling infatuated with makeup and overwhelmed by all my choices. After awhile, everything looks alike! Rows of mascara that look the same as the one next to it.
Lately, I've been trying to cut back on impulse makeup buys (hello recession) and spread out the makeup purchases so I don't spend $100 on my products in one day because I need to replenish my stock. By spreading that out, I trick myself into thinking that I'm not actually spending collectively that much on makeup.
My colleague Meg and I also talk about makeup on a daily basis, giving each other recommendations on products to buy and stay away from. I really think she could be the one to help me become more eyeliner-proficient.
Anyhow, here are some recent makeup purchases that I love:
- Smashbox Under Eye Brightener - I posted before that I bought this and it has made such a difference. Highly recommend it
- Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Milk - Doesn't require water and soothes your face while removing foundation, etc.
- Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara - So far so good with this one. I have thin lashes and the brush definitely catches them easily
- Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer - perfect foundation for warm days. Goes on light and provides great coverage
So what your your favorite makeup or beauty products right now? Am I the only one who goes a little overboard with buying makeup?
Tomorrow is supposed to be 70 degrees in Chicago. I could lose my mind I'm so excited. Time to get some sun on my pasty, non-spray tanned body!!
