You know what I'm tired of? Spending money on products that don't deliver. Beauty products are especially notorious for this. Makeup that promises to stay on all day and is gone by mid-afternoon. Shampoo that promises to turn frizzy dry hair sleek and straight. (I know better than to believe this).
But when you find a products that actually delivers, you're almost in disbelief. A product that lives up to its promise--what do you know?
So, it's share time. Here are some of my favorite beauty products, the ones I pack on vacation because I can't live without them for a week.
Estee Lauder Clear Difference Oil Control Hydrator--no more face powder touch-ups. This stuff works!
Carmex Lip Balm. You'll never buy Chap Stick again!
Cover Girl Advanced Radiance is the face powder for me. I've tried more expensive ones and this is the one I always go back to.
Matrix Sleek Look Shampoo, Conditioner, Styling Creme and Lock-Down Spray. This actually goes a long way toward taming the frizz.
Studio Gear eyeshadow--This one was a recommendation from Colleen. I apply it wet as eyeliner and it lasts all day.
Loreal Eye Defense. You'd have to read my first blog on aging eyes to know what this creme fixed, but trust me, it works.
Cover Girl Outlast lip color. A little hard to remove when you DO want it off, but this stuff really lasts and looks nice for hours and hours.
Kendra Thermal Styling Spray. This is used before using a curling iron or flat iron. Makes a big difference.
And finally, my ultimate splurge: the Chi Ceramic Flatiron. My salon used it on my hair for two years before I finally took the plunge and purchased one on ebay. Expensive, but heads above the other flatirons (no pun intended).
