August Favorites


Maybelline Define A Brow Pencil Medium Brown 643
This stuff is waterproof. Many tout it as a dupe for MAC's Brow Pencil.
This product is a very affordable alternative. It is my new HG (Holy Grail)
brow product!

Blends easily with brow hair
Waterproof for all day wear
Safe for sensitive eyes
Contact lens safe and ophthalmologist tested"


Base - L'Oreal HiP Blendable Blushing Creme - ENAMOURED (Matte Pecan Brown)
Set - Milani Mineral Blush - SUNSET BEACH (MAC Raisin Dupe)


Sally Hansen Satin Effects Lip Gloss

This is my back up for C.O. Bigelow Lip Products.
I love applying this before I do my entire face.
By the time I get to my lips, they are moisturized and plumped.
This stuff makes for a perfectly primed lip canvas.
I blot off the product and proceed with liner and color.
I received this as a gift from a friend.

Revlon Superlustrous Lip Gloss

These are quite pigmented. The shine lasts on my lips for about an hour.
The pigmentation remains for about three hours despite the loss of shine.
I like to apply mine over lipstick. However they are pigmented enough to wear alone.
I love them. Revlon is giving MAC Lipglass a run for their money.

Skin Care

Clairsonic Mia - Hands down, the best ever investment I have ever made in skincare. Removes the most minute trace of makeup. Exfoliates. It is like having a mini spa treatment everytime I use it!

Unrefined Shea Butter
I am a dry girl. Shea Butter never fails me. It is my HG skin moisturizer.
My entire family enjoys the benefits of this product. We also use it in our hair.

Hair Care

Fruit Of The Earth Aloe Vera Gel
This was a gift from a friend.
It is awesome for defining curls and slicking down edges. It soothes a dry scalp.

Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Conditioner
I use this on my daughter's (transitioning) hair.
I left it in per the tightly curly method .
This product yielded soft shiny twists and braid outs.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish

These affordable colors were on sale for $.99 at Walgreen's and I racked up, supplementing my collection. Their vibrant colors never fail to disappoint me.
