Current Beauty Faves: Lips and Lashes

August 12, 2013



I don't wear makeup on a daily basis. When I need coverage, I wear BareMinerals Ready mineral foundation and their cream concealer. Other than that, the only beauty products I really indulge in are lippies and lash products. Tinted lip balms will be the death of me. I have an entire drawer of almost every brand - from drugstore to luxury labels. I like being able to put on some sheer moisturizing lip color on the go, without having to look in a mirror. Tinted lippies are no fuss - and not to mention, hubby approved! While I have discovered a hand full that almost met HG status, it seemed like the hunt would never end. Every time I stop by Sephora, Ulta, or Target - it never fails, I always check out the balms in hopes of finding the perfect one. Some are either too sticky, taste wrong, too shimmery, too shiny, too drying, or the color is off. 

Finally, just recently I discovered my favorite beauty brand BareMinerals released their own mineral tinted balm - Jack of All Trades. And, just like almost every other item of theirs - it is now a HG for me. The color "For Keeps" is the perfect MLBB (my lips but better) tint. Super moisturizing, no foul taste or smell, and it has a natural looking sheen to it. 

Just before my lip discovery, I had also picked up BM's new Lash Domination mascara. Wow. It totally delivers. I have very fine lashes and it does everything - thickens, lengthens, defines, strengthens..etc - all without clumps and globs. Staying power is amazing. To make it water proof, I also got their Locked and Coated clear top coat, which is a great add-on for trips to the beach or times you know tears are inevitable.

Added a photo of me I took with my phone - wearing both the lip balm and the mascara with just a touch of concealer under my eyes. 

What are your fave lash and lip products? I would love to know! :) 
Thanks for dropping by, have a fabulous week ahead!
