Lately I’ve been on a real beauty binge. It might have something to do with all the time that I’ve been spending on Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr. (Which also explains why you haven’t seen us posting here. You can check us out all over the internets! Yeah. I said internets.) Anyway, it’s so easy to get absorbed into social media (trust me, I know!) that I thought I’d share my current beauty faves with you all to help bring me back to reality. Check ’em out below!
Aveeno Smart Essentials
This scrub is really nice! I got it in my Targey Beauty Bag and I’ve been using it consistently ever since. It has a light fragrance, fine exfoliating beads and a creamy consistency. My face doesn’t feel dry after I use it like it does with other scrubs. Gets a plus in my book.
Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum and Stay Clear Cream
I got this little pair in one of the goodie bags that everyone got at Blogger’s Night Out. I have to admit, I was a little wary about trying it out. Maybe it’s because I never heard of Evologie? Anyway, I decided to give this product a go because I think that everyone deserves a chance…
Ok, ok. I had this ENOURMOUS zit right before “that time of the month” that refused to go away. I had no other products laying around and I was desperate. But thank goodness I used it! First I washed my face with the Aveeno scrub. After I patted my face dry, I applied the serum to that stubborn sucker, and let the serum dry. Then, I applied the cream all over my face just as the instructions read on the packaging.
And the next morning, I was able to show my face to the world again. I was genuinely shocked that it worked that fast. I wish I had tried it sooner to spare myself the brutal teasing of Lydi’Ann. *sniff*
New York Color – Berry Rich Lipstick
I bought this lipstick a week ago at CVS. I was running errands and I was distracted by the end of aisle product placement. *le sigh* Anyway, I’ve been looking for an everyday lip color and I think this might be it. I haven’t worn it yet, but I will!! What do you think of the color?
I’ve always been into nail polish. I just don’t have the patience for it: painting on the actual nail (which is for losers), drying between coats, the inability to touch anything after you’ve finally finished. I can’t deal. But I still buy it. I’m a sucker for pretty colors. The above pictures are courtesy of Lydi’Ann who has meticulously honed her polishing skills. Her nails always look nice.

I have way more beauty faves that I’d love to share, but I think that’s enough for today. Have you tried any of these products?
