I don’t share much with you guys as far as beauty and fashion, mostly because I’m a jeans (ok – yoga pants) and t-shirt kinda girl. Somehow I don’t think you’d be very impressed with my “outfit of the day” on a regular basis. $4 flip flops from Walmart? Sign me up! I do have a few indulgences though. I did wear a really cute outfit earlier this wee. The skirt was from Ten Thousand Villages in Asheville, NC (amazing store! Check them out), the tank was from Old Navy and the necklace is from Premier Jewelry.
From time to time, I really get hung up on my nails. For a while, it was Jamberry nail wraps. And while I do still love my nail wraps, most recently I’ve been in love with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish. It goes on smooth, shiny and last longer than any polish I’ve ever used at home. It’s a little on the expensive side… Each color will run you $7.99 and you need the top coat (also $7.99 – but a bottle of that lasts a long time!) When you think about what you could spend getting your nails painted at a salon though, it really isn’t bad at all! I’ve been grabbing a new color to try about every other week. So far, I have pink, blue, purple and a gorgeous gold. You can pick this polish up just about everywhere cosmetics are sold.
Next up, mascara. I don’t wear it often (I was blessed with some pretty killer lashes), but when I do, I love my Mary Kay Lash Love mascara. It’s not too thick, not clumpy at all and coats and separates my lashes so well!. It’s not flaky and stays put – both super important since I wear contact lenses. You can’t buy this in retail stores, but you can order it online at MaryKay.com.
My biggest indulgence comes in the form of my $10 Ipsy Glam Bag every month. I get to try so many new products that I wouldn’t otherwise buy. My June bag is on the way and I am itching to see what fun things will be inside it. I’ve tried lots of subscription services, and for the value, it is by far my favorite! Plus, your goodies come in a really cute bag each month. I’m currently carrying this one as a little clutch!
Lord and Berry’s eyeliner is my new favorite! It goes on so smooth! It was an Ispy win! Both the Olive lip balm and the NYX Butter lipstick were total wins too! The Butter lipstick is my new go-to fav. Between the full-size lip balm and lipstick, my Ipsy bag more than paid for itself. Oh, and the polish in that pic above… more Sally Hansen Miracle Gel awesomeness!
