So that started me thinking, what products do I love enough to write a blog post about?
First is Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener. They should give this to you in the hospital when you have a baby. Here's your baby, here's their diapers, and here's how you are going to look alive for the next few months. I generally don't wear makeup on the weekends, and every weekend I think, "Whew, I look tired." I don't look any more tired than normal -- I'm just hiding it better during the week.
Next up is Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer. I originally thought, "What a stupid product. Who needs this?" The answer is Me. I look like I have superbly flawless skin with this on and makeup just glides on with this on. It's primer for your face. Awesome.
I use Dior AirFlash. It's spray paint foundation. I spray it real quick on my face, boom, done! It's very light and sheer.
This also made me think about products I feel I'm constantly on the look out for:
- Mascara. I always end up with mascara under my eyes. I don't know why it's so hard to create a product that stays where it's supposed to go. I'm always looking for a good one. I even purchased the Sephora Favorites LashStash Sampler, got 10 new mascaras, and still didn't like any of them really.
- Lipstick. While I have a few standard favorites:
I'm always on the look out for a new one. Considering how long a lipstick lasts me, I may never need to buy one for years, but I'm always curious to try a new color or brand. I generally have a makeup bag full of glosses and lipstick in my purse.
- All in one palettes. I'm always convinced that I need an all in one palette, that I'm going to just toss in my purse and it's going to save me. I never use it. I either put makeup on or I don't. (I even have one in my desk at work just in case I have to run out the door, and I've used it once.)
