I took a trip to the mall looking for a sale I had read about in the paper. On my way to the store that was having the sale I passed by a MAC store. I went in and I was in heaven. This was the cleanest cosmetics store I had ever been in. The MA immediately came to me and asked if I needed help with anything and I told her this was my first time and that I had never used the brand. She then asked me what kind of look was I going for and I told her just an everyday neutral face. She asked me about 20 questions about my skin and my lifestyle and about what kind of time I have to do my makeup or skincare. She basically wanted to know how the look would fit into my life. This I found very interesting. Because most salespeople don’t care why you want it as long as they make a sale. So her listening to me made me feel good about being there and not like I didn’t belong.
I am a simple girl who likes simple things. I don’t have time for a lot of fuss so I have very little in my makeup bag. I have some favorites that I would like to share with you.
I recently took a trip to Marshall’s and they had two Sugar Cosmetics products. I got the Travel Tan and the Sugar Cube. First, the Travel Tan. I found this product to give a matte glow to my skin which is what I like. I don’t care for a lot of shimmer and this product didn’t have all the shimmer like other bronzing products. I really liked it. And it was so matte and similar to my skin tone that I used it as a substitution to my powder.
So I have been using Revlon Color stay Foundation and Powder and can I just say that I love it. I am a hard to match skin tone and when I use the Color stay it gives me a clean, fresh well rested look and I can’t believe the coverage. I have never used a product that gave me everything I wanted and this product definitely did that. I want sheer but good coverage and a fresh look which, in the past, has been hard for me to get with other traditional makeup.
CVS has a sale right now on beauty products and I took advantage of the great value. First, the L’oreal HIP products are buy one get one free. I got two creme eyliners in black and eggplant. These creme eyeliners work great and they have excellent staying power. I have also used these as an eyeshadow and they are good crease definers. Covergirl Lip products were also on sale as buy one get one free. I got two Covergirl Outlasts in Plum berry and Buff. The color payoff is medium but the staying power is awsome. It really does last and you get moisture instead of dryness like most other long wearing lip colors. I appreciate this fact and Love it. I also got two glosses. A CG wetslicks in fire fly and a lip gloss in baby girl pink. The shades are sheer but the tint is awesome. They aren’t tacky or stupid sticky. If you have the time try some of these products.
I went to Marshall’s and found some really nice things. Mostly makeup and some skin care. So here is a list of the products I got.
I have been trying to find some products that will improve the condition of my hair and I came across Profectiv a few months ago. This stuff is awesome. It restored the moisture to my hair and gave it body and shine. I think someone has finally heard our prayers ladies and has given us a system to go with it. If you have not tried Profectiv then I suggest starting with the 60 second strenthener and the mega growth hair and scalp conditioner. You will not be disappointed.
