Monthly I like to share new-to-me beauty products I've purchased. Check out my reviews below:
- Sinful Colors Polishes in Let Me Go and Bali Mist--I tried in vain to take pics of my nails, but the best results come from the bottles themselves. Metallics in nontraditional colors will be huge this fall, and these polishes at $1.99 each, are a budget-friendly way to try the trend. They are holographic, shiny, and the color is buildable. Try a couple of coats for best results. I prefer the pink Bali Mist. Purchase in drugstores.
Let Me Go & Bali Mist
- Facial Anti-Stress Mask: Dead Sea Minerals--Again, I try to make my own masks, but I purchased this one because clay-based. If you have oil skin, you'll love this, as it purifies and cleans pores. Or you can apply this blue mask and pretend you're in the Avatar movie. Apply, let dry, and rinse away. Purchase in drugstores or chain stores, like Wal-Marty/Target/Ulta, etc. for around $4.
- ELF Makeup Mist & Set--While I love to make my own makeup setting spray, I can't always do that while traveling. I also wanted something that was cheap and lasted longer. I tried out this ELF version for $3 over the weekend, and it worked. My makeup survived a hot day at the lake running after a pup and little ones. Purchase at Target or online.
- Rimmel Scandal Eyes Flex Mascara--I'm a huge fan of the original ScandalEyes (orange tube) for volume, but it's one of the wettest mascaras I've ever used. This version is a drier, flexible formula, thanks to the Lycra. If you like soft lashes with some volume, you'll like this. Think of it as the daytime version of the ScandalEyes. Purchase in drugstores/discount chains for around $6. I got mine for around $3, so look for sales.
