{Girls Just Wanna Have Fun...and Maybe Some Boys Too}

Today, I am loving...

Gifted Goodies

Now that Christmas is over, it appears my room has turned into a mini Sephora...but I'm still waiting for my makeup artist to show up. You know, that fabulously manicured individual whose bright makeup causes you to jump back at first sight until you realize no! this isn't the circus, this is just how much fun you can have with cosmetics! Well, it appears my fabulously flamboyant artist is a no-show. However, I am enjoying some my new gifts. Perhaps I can even open up my own nail salon now that I have filled an entire rack with nail polishes. I think my wallet might come to life and yell at me for my recent nail obsession. Does it matter that I get them on sale? No? Oh are some products I recommend trying out:

I mostly stick to neutrals, so this palette rocks with a wide variety of colors to choose from! I really like the eyelid primer that came with it also; my eye makeup doesn't smudge one bit!

A light spritz of this rose water before you walk out the door both hydrates your skin & keeps your makeup fresh.

Amazing colors. Absolutely love.

It really does minimize the appearance of pores. Great for the nose & chin!

Did I mention I have an obsession? My friend's a cosmetologist. Discounts, my friend.

I'm not the biggest fan of primers, but I've been pleasantly pleased...goes on smooth and does a relatively good job at providing a smooth canvas.

This won't be leaving my side for a long while...wonderful moisturizer. And that is coming from someone who suffers from chronic chapped lips.

This mud mask is fabulous. FABULOUS.
Only 10 minutes for the smoothest skin. Try it.

I've recently begun to wear a little eyeliner...and I really like playing with hues of blue. MAC has a wide variety of colors and they last forever.

I had this cleanser in travel size over the summer and was quite pleased with how well it treated my skin, even in the worst conditions. It's hard to pick a cleanser that suits you, but this one is gentle and doesn't dry you out. I'm saving it for the summer months!

  1. Love so much of these, especially the MAC eye pencils. The navy blue one is my favorite. And I'm going to try the lip tint.

  2. I have started having a a nail polish obsession too! That Touring America set looks Ah.mazing!

  3. I've seen the Naked eye shadow palette recently, and am intrigued... I enjoy playing around with make up, and probably own a little more than I should... :-)

  4. Hannah - Definitely look into the indigo one as well! I'm LOVING it. The lip tint is fantastic as well.

  5. Betty - I just picked up the one I really wanted, roadhouse blues...I can't wait to try it out!

  6. Emma - Tell me about it! My crate of eyeshadows apparently is dibs for everyone :-p I'm not a huge fan of the brush that comes with the palette, but I really am enjoying playing and mixing the colors!

  7. I love my Naked palettes :) And NARS orgasm blush is still on my wishlist

  8. I've been debating on whether or not i should invest in the Naked palette, but i think i must! also smashbox photo finish is one of my favorites! great suggestions!
