A Little Blogger Love...

It's always a breath of fresh air to find that someone else has just as huge of an interest in your habit as you do. The lovely world of social networking has made it that much easier to find these people (something I'm sure the family is happy about), and that is just what I discovered in Tali from the Gloss Goss. She's forever rating and reviewing the things she picks up on the other side of the water (England to be exact), and so I've taken heed to a few of those items, and am pleased to report back with rave reviews! Do check out her blog--it's well worth your while!

Laura Geller is one of those brands that never really jumped out at me from the shelves. It was one of those lines that looks as though it's hiding something really great, but you're just not sure what it is. Tali had picked up one of the Blush & Brighten baked marbleized blushes, and it gave me a reason to consider it. I grabbed the Sunswept shade, which consists of bronze, coral and rose hues. It's swirled together so beautifully, and then baked for 24 hrs. On the skin, it leaves just a slight glow (not overpowering at all), and is a lot less glittery than MAC's Grand Duo blushes. I'm not one for glitter on the face, so this is perfect.

Lancome's Hypnose Mascara is another product that she swears by, and that I now too feel a huge relationship forming with. Over the years, I've dismissed a lot of Lancome's products as just plain boring--but this lengthens beyond what many higher-end mascaras seem to do. Bigger, badder lashes. They're amazing. The women in the family will definitely be finding this in their '09 Christmas stockings!
Last but not least, a drugstore find. I have to give her credit for finding the gems inside our drugstores that I seem to overlook time and time again. This time it's Maybelline's Mineral Power Bronzer Makeup Booster. Mix just a bit of this product with your favorite foundation, moisturizer, or even apply it directly to your skin. It's non-streaky and very subtle. Have you all seen MAC's Style Warriors line that just came out? They sell a very similar product called lustre drops, that isn't even half as wearable as this cheapie counterpart. I've had such good luck with this Mineral Power line--it has yet to play up on my skin :)

Just a few more things for you to think about as you wrap up the work day, and dream about the weekend!

@tali: they told me that they're pulling the line from sephora...i wonder if that means it will all go on sale?! :)

my friend was in the car when I applied the hypnose, and I think she's going to grab it today. Ah, the pressure :)
