Abby has long been a friend of mine and her writing never ceases to amaze. Today on her blog, she shared her opinions on makeup and it was thrilling to see her routine and beauty favorites. It reminded me of a friend last week who said anytime she has guests staying with her, she likes to secretly try their shampoo. So Abby, thanks for letting me metaphorically try your shampoo.
Much like Abby, I’m willing to splurge on a good moisturizer but eye makeup is where a drugstore find comes in handy. Or at least, it used to be. Now I’m always tempted to buy Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. It’s amazing and doesn’t flake off. In fact, it usually takes nothing short of a small makeup-removing-cotton-ball army to properly rid my lashes of it.
Some of my other favorites include Nars blush in Orgasm (embarrassing name, beautiful hue), Make Up For Ever Rouge Artist Natural Lipstick in N9 Copper Pink, Klorane dry shampoo, and Snow Drop Hand Cream in Winter Vanilla. At the top of my list are these $7 tinted lip balms from Burt’s Bees. They pack a lot of hydration with the perfect amount of sheer color.
