Over-Break Beauty Finds
I don't consider myself much of a beauty blogger, but I think I will add that to the list of everything I put on my blog, "beauty blogger" to one of the many categories. I've never really been into makeup. Of course I wear it, but I never thought much about it. I would go over to my friends' houses and see their huge makeup cases, drawers and drawers of accumulated makeup and I would think of my tiny little makeup bag that houses a simple powder, a mascara, an eye shadow, an eye liner, and that was it. I would always wonder why someone would need so much makeup. I still think that, but now my standards have changed. I now have two makeup bags. One is solely for eye shadow. Over the break, I have began to obsess over makeup. Before, I would only use organic makeup on my face, and I still do mostly, but now I love the expensive makeup. I never want to accumulate makeup, I would want to use it, and then buy something else. I tend to accumulate facial cleansers, facial masks, and things like that, because I like the idea of doing spa treatments at home. I am finally beginning to understand the makeup craze, and why Sephora is so fun.
Over the break, I bought or was either gifted beauty products.
Most of the beauty products are for my lips because I am obsessed with lip glosses, lip treatments, lip stains, lip sticks, lip whatevers. I love it all.
Argan Hair Oil by Badger Balm from New Seasons
eos Passion Fruit lip balm Gifted
Herbalism facial cleanser from Lush from Lush
Fresh Farmacy facial cleanser from Lush from Lush
Smith's Rosebud Salve from Rosebud Perfume Co from Sephora
Ultra Repair Lip Therapy from First Aid Beauty from Sephora
Clinique Chubby Stick in Mighty Mimosa lip stick from Sephora
The products I am currently "addicted" to are the Rosebud Salve and the First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Lip Therapy.
I use the Argan Hair Oil from Badger everyday, and I think it is helping this pesky problem spot I have. I have this one spot that is dry on the right side of my head, the ends are dry in just one spot and I have tried everything to try and cure it. I hope this Argan oil does the trick.
Here is a review post about the Herbalism, Fresh Farmacy and Cosmetic Warrior: Lush Product Review.
The item that I want to feature is the Clinique Chubby Stick lip stick.
I originally was in the market for an Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar, but those are just way too pigmented on my skin. I decided to go with something a little more subtle and not so bold.
I went with the Clinique Chubby Stick (only a dollar less than the Lip Tar).
The Chubby Stick works way better with my skin tone, and it's not so bold. It is moisturizing, and very subtle on my lips.
I would normally be smiling my signature "Courtney" smiles, but I wanted to show the color, "Mighty Mimosa" on my lips.
What I loved about the Clinique Chubby Stick was the packaging. I love pretty or interesting packaging of products, and the pretty floral box caught my eye.
I will be doing a review on the Badger Argan Hair Oil just as soon as my Badger Damascus Rose Face Oil comes in. I ordered it from New Seasons a few days ago, and I do hope it comes in soon.
I obviously need more practice at beauty blogging, but soon enough I will get the hang of it.
Maybe next time I will do a video introducing the beauty products,
but I do love taking the pictures.
I do hope you go and check out these beauty products, they are super fun and could be just the product you are looking for... for whatever you need.
