BEAUTY: December Favorites

How is it Christmas is already over??

We had a nice quiet Christmas as the hubs and I both had to go back to work the following day.

I wandered into Sephora awhile back, not really looking for anything in particular so the sales guy asked what product I don't have a lot of.

I thought about it for a second and realized something. 

I don't have a full-sized lip gloss.

Seriously. I hoard eyeshadow but every single lip product I had was a sample.

He tried out Smashbox's lip lacquer in Flamingo which I initially thought was way to much- I gravitate toward nude lips and bold eyes so the hot pink scared me off initially. He told me to look in the mirror a couple minutes later and when I did it was like a whole product! It was still hot pink but the brightness factor cooled down a lot. I've actually started going a little quieter on the eyes so I can wear this color. And hey, that's less time in front of the mirror in the morning! 

I had a sample of Buxom's lip polish and fell in love the first time I used it. The colors are fabulous and it provided a 
cooling/plumping effect. I could stockpile these babies! Sophia looks great on my olive toned skin.

I heard about First Aid Beauty from Kate over at the Small Things Blog and discovered their face cleanser. I use it every night in the shower with a konjac sponge. Even though I take my makeup off beforehand, you I can still see makeup on the sponge that's how deep this cleanser gets, but it's still gentle enough for everyday use.
