Do this: Use these awesome beauty products too

So, since expressing my love for a few beauty products, I discovered three more you must must acquire.

Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm PetalFirst up is Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm by Smashbox.  I own three of these:  Petal (pink), Berry (um. . . berry) and Sangria (red.)  I love them all.  You draw on your lips with a pen and then use the balm on the other end to keep your lips from feeling crazy dry.  And it lasts ALL DAY.  Who doesn't have time to reapply their lipstick you may ask yourself?  Me.  Sometimes I go the whole work day without peeing, and you know that if I had 3 minutes to pee, I don't have time to do something crazy like remember to bring lipstick with me then actually apply it.  For goodness sake, I put the stuff on in the car in the parking lot of my office!


they're real!The second is Benefit's they're real!   Always on the lookout for mascara products that don't end up under my eyes, I got a sample of this with a Sephora purchase.  I have pretty good lashes anyway, put after I put this one, I actually swore out loud.  It looked like I had falsies.  I didn't.  I recommend using a light touch because a heavy one is extermely dramatic.





And finally, M.A.C. Cosmetics Lady Danger lipstick (color pictured).  Admiring a J. Crew ad, it casually mentioned that the red the models were wearing was Lady Danger.  It was flattering on all the models.  More orange to me than red, the lipstick was a little bright on, but blotted was simply perfect.  I mean, just try to have a bad day with a lipstick named Lady Danger on your lips.  Just try.
