Hey hey hey!!
So today I thought I’d share some things other than food, eating & fitness with you friends… how about it?
I know, gettin’ all crazy-like up in this blog?! 😉
I recently took a dangerous to my wallet trip to Ulta, which is a new beauty supply store here in the west end of Richmond…
You see, my normal “beauty routine” is truly pretty minimal. I use drug store products and not much of them & have always been pretty pleased with the outcome as has my bank account.
However as I continue to get closer to 30 with every passing minute time has gone I was in the market try a new type of powder outside of my “CoverGirl comfort zone” – one that would be more natural, create a “smooth finish” and that maybe even had SPF!
Note: I normally just wore a light translucent powder, sans foundation.
So after browsing the aisles & looking at my options, I decided that this was going to be the best fit for what I was looking for 😀
Here were the selling points for this girl:
- concealer, powder & SPF all in one (*squeal*!)
- pure mineral pigment bound with organic shea butter & vitamin E
- no harsh chemical dyes, talcs, alcohol, fragrance, preservatives
- good for every skin type & condition
- not tested on animals
Impressive, no? Well, I was sold.
I absolutely adore this powder. I use a sponge to apply under my eyes as concealer then I use a makeup brush to apply to the rest of my face. It feels so good on my skin & it really just gives my face that smooth finish I was looking for!
And speaking of makeup brushes, I ended up finding one that I have been so pleased with thus far.
Never one to want to shell out big dough for a measley brush – this was right up my alley! For only about $9 I am not only applying gorgifying makeup but also being good to mother earth 🙂
And thanks to my homegirl Brittany, I now know that this pretty lady is the mastermind behind this product!
I’ll admit, in my early high school years I wanted a wardrobe just. like. hers. We watched this movie until the tape wore out (tapes, remember those?! LOL :P)
I think she is fabulous, another favorite of mine is Excess Baggage… (Benicio?!)
Ahhh I love “educational” movies 😉
But I digress (hey I never claimed to watch quality shows haha)
So there you have it, some new beauty products that I have been super impressed with. And I guess as time goes on, along with my eats, even my “beauty routine” is getting more natural 😀 I like!
Well I’m about to devour the remainder of last night’s tenderloin salad from Firebirds – it was huge! (<— insert TWSS joke here)
Then after work it’s off to check on my patient aka The Man! I’m praying everything goes smoothly and he isn’t in too much pain 😦
He’ll be having cottage cheese or something of the soft/cold nature for dinner – hey, at least I have a lotta meals in that arsenal haha (thank you tonsillectomy!)
But don’t fret, you know I’ll be cooking up a fun solo dinner tonight (I already have some things in mind :P) Plus I’m going to give one of my FitBloggin goodies a whirl! But you’ll have to come back to see, of course 😉
