TOP 5: Makeup + GIVEAWAY

I'm starting a new section on this site: TOP 5. This is where I'll unload on my current favorite 5 products. Then YOU will get a chance to share your TOP 5 in that category by leaving a comment in the comment section below.

I will pick a winner at random from the comment section and that person will receive a fabulous prize... One of MY TOP 5 favorites.

SO, this week I'll be sharing my TOP 5 favorite makeup products as of now:

1. Dr. Kiss Satin Finish Balm - A chappy that goes on clear then adapts with your skin tone to add a hint of natural pink to the lips. It also smells -- and tastes -- delish -- like mint and hydrates the dehydrated pout.
2. Make Up For Ever Smoky Lash Mascara - My current must-have mascara. It makes my lashes uber long and stark black giving the impression that I am wearing falsies. I LOVE!
3. Hourglass Liquid Eyeliner in Ebony - A pen applicator that gets the liner on the lid, not all over the eye. So easy to use, it's virtually idiot-proof. Stays on all night and has a long tip to make for easy application. You can also control how thin or thick you want the line to be.
4. Lancome Juicy Tubes Pure in Bare Honey - A deliciously light golden honey-hued lip gloss that is all natural and super shiny without being sticky. I layer this ontop of Dr. Kiss' Satin Finish Balm for an irridecent, burst of shimmer.
5. The All Nighter All Over Shimmer Powder - With Spring finally here, what better way to celebrate than by adding a champagne glow to your face, shoulders and ever your hair? I use it to accentuate my brow and cheek bones.


The All Nighter All Over Shimmer Powder (value of $18.00). A favorite of Rachel Zoe, this anywhere powder will soon become your must-have makeup addition.

TO WIN: Leave a comment in the comment section with your TOP 5 favorite makeup products. Winner will be chosen at random. USA participants only, please.


contest is closed.
congrats to the winner, Valerie C!

My top 5 Beauty Products

1. I guess this is kind of cheating, because this is a hair item, but hair needs to be beautful too, right I just started using John Freida's Smooth Start and I love it. I have never gotten such smooth, silky hair from another shampoo/conditioner.

2. Sephora Pallete that I got around Thanksgiving. I would never think, or be able to afford, all of the colors in large size. It is great to be able to experiment w/ so many colors.

3. Clinique Three Step, which I guess some people aren't all that wild about, I love it. I wasn't really using anything prior and adding this has really changed the skin on my face, so soft. Not to mention I love the oxygenating feeling of the soap, so clean!

4. My super cheap Walmart brand makeup removing wipes. They do the trick.

5.Curling iron, nough said.

1. Benetint Pocketpal by Benefit. Love it because you can control how dark you want it to look. so for daytime you can just swipe it on and have a daytime look and at night swipe it on a few times and it is perfect! oh and also, you can wear it on your lips and cheeks! so versatile!
2.Tarte's Eraser Concealer. I don't wear foundation so this is perfect for spot treatment and hiding little blemishes. the best part is that it is paraben free and actually helps treat irritated skin. it is a must have in my make-up bag!
3. Urban Decay's Baked Bronzer. This product is perfect for me because as a student, I don't really have time in the morning to put on a full face of make-up. I literally brush this bronzer on lightly, swipe on some benetint and mascara and I'm set! This product leaves my skin glowing and makes me look fresh!
4. Estee Lauder's More than mascara in Black. Seriously, two coats and my eyelashes look awesome and if I continue to apply a few more coats, my eyelashes have that vavavaVOOM. Love this product and how it doesn't clump either.
5. Eucerin's AQUAPHOR. I probably own 8 tubes of this stuff. I have it in my purse, in my car, in my coat pockets, in my make-up bag. EVERYWHERE. this is one product that I probably could not live without. As simple as it is, I love it. it helps heal my cracked and sore lips and even helps with dry skin anywhere on my face or body. I always have them in arms reach. :)

I love when I am reminded on an oldie but goodie- I had forgotten my love of Juicy Tubes
Top 5 - right now
1) Tarte Clean Slate primer-all natural, makes my skin feel good and look great.
2) Smashbox Sheer Focus tinted moisturizer- bought on a whim because I was in between LM colors and am really happy- oil free, not greasy, nice coverage
3)Laura Mercier Matte translucent powder- sample from Sephora but really happy with it so far.I use a brush with it and love that I can carry in my purse. UD HD powder was my staple but it can be messy.
4) skyn Icelandic relief eye pen
5) Nars Ashes to Ashes- my go to eyeshadow of the moment.
