beauty tries

When it comes to my makeup I have to say that this girl is in one serious rut. Products that I am familiar with and love are being rejected by my skin all of the sudden. I get it, time is marching across my face and there is not a damn thing I can do about that…well, there are a few things but you get what I am saying.

In an effort to feel better about my makeup I am diving into some new products. Last weekend I picked up Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour. Sonia Kashuk Beautifying Blush and Loreal Colour Riche Lipstick.

Drugstore Beauty TriesThe good: the nail color and the blush I will use again and again. Anyone want a tube of lipstick though?

Drugstore Beauty TriesWhy I didn’t love the lipstick…first off, it was stinky. Not good perfume kind of stinky. It also had this weird metallic sheen to it that made my tendency to be dry winter lips look severely dry and damaged. One other knock on it is that it didn’t feel rich and creamy. It felt cheap. In a nutshell I wouldn’t recommend.

Drugstore Beauty TriesNow onto better things, the nail color I liked. It did take 3 coats but after it was dry it was far more durable than many other brands I have worn. The color is a soft super super subtle pink….perfect for that “I want to have polish on but I don’t want to be able to see it from a mile away” look.

My favorite though is the blush. The color is rich, goes on evenly with an angled brush and lasts. I adore blush, but am never sure if I am doing it right. Not putting on enough, putting on too much, applying the right shade….it’s all sort of intimidating to me. I felt good in this melon color though. It is a nice jolt of color to my winter face. (Wearing both the blush and polish in yesterday’s post.)

The next product on my radar is foundation. If you have any good medium to full coverage products to suggest please share! Drugstore or high end – I don’t care as long as it is good stuff. I have a foundation brush on it’s way I will be dying to try (and sharing with you guys soon).

Cheers to shaking up the beauty product routine!

    carmex lip balm (not the kind in the tin, the kind in chapstick form) at night time and anytime you’re NOT wearing lipstick will sure sad winter lips and let you wear any lipstick you want anytime you want…. also there’s a funny little pink rubber scrubby thing in the check out lane at Sephora that literally lifts every bit of dead skin off your carmex-soaked chapped lips in the morning… l literally use that little pink thing twice a day, once for my face and once for my lips (I even got the husband on my lip routine too, minus the lipstick :P)

    Mac makes a great product called “Studio fix powder plus foundation.” If you find yourself at the grocery store, however, try Loreal true match super blendable compact makeup! It’s a cream compact with great coverage and a budget friendly price tag!
