1. Sinful Colors Nail Polish in 920 (what a waste of a color name, I’ll call it – Pink Lightning)
I was scouring Walgreens the other day for a cute nail polish. After about 10 minutes, which felt more like 30 minutes because I was wrestling wide eyed makeup demolishing toddler during my search I figured none were really speaking to me and grabbed a pale boring pink. As I was checking out I saw this little diamond, it was love at first site. Oh, and it’s $0.95.
(a lot of you asked what color nail polish I was wearing in my latest vid, THIS IS IT!)
2. Naked Skin Healthy Balm
Urban Decay JUST came out with this beauty balm and I am kind of excited about it for spring because it is VERY lightweight (just barely any coverage) and touts more proven skin benefits than most I have seen. Perfect product to use under your HAC. I’ll pay very close attention to my skin in the next few weeks and report to you. Some of the things they claim are:
In a clinical study, immediately after use:
-65% of participants’ complexion looked significantly improved
-59% of participants’ skin looked significantly lifted
-68% of participants’ skin hydration improved significantly
After eight weeks of use:
-93% of participants had significantly firmer, more lifted skin
-90% had significantly more radiant skin
-84% had a significant improvement in fine lines
-Over 84% had significantly smoother and more hydrated skin
WARNING: I saw that this was getting very mixed reviews. I think it’s important to know that this is very light coverage and may not work for very fair skin. In fact if in doubt at all, hang tight and I will let you know what I think once I have given it some time to work.
3.Tomas Self Tanning Spray HERE (or get it at Sally Beauty)
A reader turned me on to this. I still prefer (as always) Sun Labs for my body and face regularly but I LOVE having a little airbrush spray on hand for when my face and neck need a little more color in a hurry. This goes on as a very olive glow and isn’t at all orangy.
Some of you may be wondering about self tanner VS the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs I mentioned a few weeks ago so here it is: Sally’s stuff is makeup so it makes your skin look flawless and smooth in addition to adding color. Tanner does not cover your skin it colors it, but it is a more natural look that sally’s and it lasts longer.
4.Maybelline Color Whipsers
I am SO excited to tell you about these! I want to buy every single one but the 3 I have gotten my hands on are killing it. They go on so soft and silky and come in colors I have been looking for EVERYWHERE for years! My very favorite so far is Petal Rebel HERE, which is the PERFECT pink:
5. Batiste Dry Shampoo for Dark Brown or Brown Hair HERE
This is the ONLY dry shampoo I have found for darker hair! (not counting Bumble & Bumble because $36 dollars is WAY more than I can bare for a small bottle of hair powder!)
It is a great product and it is darker than the usual white dust that comes squiring out of the other bottles but I’ll warn you now, it isn’t super dark either. It’s no Bumble and Bumble but it’s good stuff and I was really excited that the brunettes got one of their own for once! Batiste has a whole line of other flavors too, a bunch of yummy smells and one for the blondies! I honestly want to try them all!
