Five Current Beauty Favorites

So, rather than pointing out how sorely I am lacking in make-up skills – I thought I’d share some of the products that captured my attention. Although I’m the furthest thing from a beauty guru, these products certainly make me feel like I am.


A Pop of Color

After years of searching for the perfect eyeshadow, I may have finally found. While many shadows never go on as they appear, the ColourPop Super Shock Shadow is a beautifully pigmented shadow that packs a whole lot of punch. The colors go on bold and last all day. I may after committed the ultimate beauty no-no after having gone to bed with my eyeshadow still on. It was much to my surprise the next morning when the color appeared as rich as when I put it on.

Blue Skies

I’ve been a long time fan of Marc Jacob’s Daisy collection and can’t help but get excited when they release new scents. Daisy Dream isn’t new by any means, but their rollerball collection is a major plus in my book. The applicator makes is easy to carry in your purse and takes up little space in your make-up bag while traveling; never mind the soft floral scent that makes it great for daytime use.

Smooth as Silk

Not only does this product go on as smooth as silk; it has the longest lasting power of any lipstick I’ve ever used. By now, most of you have heard of ColourPop – having made its storm across social media. it didn’t take me long to see why it got people talking. While most matte lips are extremely drying and tend to clump after wear, this stain goes on smooth before setting. The Ultra Matte Lips is both inexpensive and worth every penny.

Double the Volume

After having been given this mascara as sample, it quickly became my go-to for long lashes. Clinique’s Lash Doubling Mascara can transform your lashes with just the flick of the wrist. The basic tapered brush catches each lash giving them a natural fullness which makes it perfect for everyday wear.

Fresh as Daisies

Just like the perfume, the Daisy Dream Luminous Body Lotion has a light and airy scent that adds a feminine touch. While some lotions can be greasy and leave behind a residue, this lotion absorbs quickly into the skin and has it feeling smoother with each use.
