Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use Blush – Stain

I'm always down for a cheek stain, not to mention one that is multi-purpose. This lovely fat stick can be used on your lips and lids too. It's great for a lady who travels a ton (perfect in your carry-on bag) or in your desk at work for a quick touch-up before happy hour. The color, Enchant, is a nice wine-brown color. There a few colors to choose from so take your pick.

Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip Plumper

Like other lip plumpers, this leaves your lips tingly and warm-like a slight bee sting. I'm not sure if it actually does its job or tricks your mind into thinking it does but I did feel like it was doing something. There are a handful of colors to choose from but I'd love to see a transparent or nude for under my favorite lipstick.

Lush Buffy Body Butter

Lush is my jam! This powerful brick of shea and cocoa butter is exactly what my extremely dry skin needs, especially with the cool temperatures coming strong. Working as both an exfoliant and a moisturizer, rub this sweet bar onto any part of your body while in the shower and you're good to go. No need for lotion after. I've been using it after I shave my legs and it leaves them so so smooth. A+!

tarte LipSurgence natural matte lip tint in exposed

What is it about this adorable little crayon that smells like mint? It's subtle and smooth color is the perfect nude to accompany a dramatic eye or give you a little something extra for the work day. Glide it on and go for a no-fuss, simple boost. Yay tarte!

Pureology~Colour Stylist, Supreme Control, Maximum Hold Hairspray

My hair suffers regularly. I am frequently color treated, past due for a trim, a daily user of heat products, and currently rocking a white girl weave. With that said, I am a huge fan of any product that will replenish my tortured locks or will at least mask the daily damage done. Like all Pureology products, this hairspray is 100% vegan, 100% salon quality, and 100% fantastic! When they boast this stuff as maximum hold, non dulling, and with extra shine, they speak the truth! This is my new favorite hairspray and is worth the salon product price!!

Sonia Kashuk~Nail Polish in Starry Night

If you're looking to add a little something to your classic black manicure, you must get your paws on Sonia Kashuk's polish in Starry Night! Slap on two coats of this hue, and you'll find your digits donning the perfect black, with a subtle sparkle. This delicious color is just enough to make your claws feel extra special!

Oil of Olay~Simply Olay Body Wash

Oil of Olay is known for their age defying products. The Olay gems I am familiar with tend to be thick, rich, and chock full of intense, moisture restoring benefits. This cleanser takes a beat from the heavy work and provides a  light, clarifying lather. I gave "Refresh" a try and really enjoyed it's fresh, floral scent. I'd recommend giving one of Olay's new, simple flavors a place in your daily shower routine!!

Leonor Greyl~Creme Regeneratrice

Want to add thickness and strength to your over worked, over treated hair?? 
Leonor Greyl's Creme Regeneratrice is the perfect solution for damaged, dry, or color treated hair.
Use this creme as a conditioner or as a 20 minute conditioning treatment. If you are looking for a more light, silky feel, I'd recommend using another product by Leonor Greyl, as this thick conditioner tends to be a tad heavy (also, the bottle is smaller, not so ideal for daily use), but if you are looking for a masque or treatment, Leonor is your gal!

Pureology Precious Oil Versatile Caring Oil

Pureology Precious Oil Versatile Caring Oil: Sunflower, coconut, olive & jojoba oils combine, and it is like Wonder Twin Powers Activate: Form of Great Hair!

Smells like the beach of your dreams, light, yet so moisturizing.

I also use it after the shower on my back & legs, as those tend to be my driest parts.
I am slightly obsessed.

My suggestion to make it even better: a spray bottle.

Thank you Pureology!
P.S.: Because it is Pureology, it won't hurt you or the planet. Bonus!

Mally Voluminizing Mascara

Another really nice, rich and creamy mascara that's great for the low-maintenance. Applies on smoothly for a clean, non-gloppy look. The straight brush makes it easy for a swipe of the lower lashes too.

Borghese Superiore State-of-the-Art Mascara

This nice, thick mascara does a great job for someone who wants a clean, no-fuss look. And there's something about the crescent-shaped wand that makes me feel like I'm getting every lash. But I'm some sort of weirdo because unless it's waterproof, my lashes droop immediately after I've applied it. This is no different.
