so, we all know the cure for rough times...

...(or happy times) is retail therapy. So, I indulged a bit yesterday with my roomie. We hit up Sephora and Kiehl's and went a little crazy on the makeup-that-looks-like-you're-not-wearing-makeup products. (Note: if you haven't figured it out yet, this post is a tad bit girlie--but to my two or three male readers, feel free to pass these tips along to your lady or sister.)

Here's what I "discovered" and I highly HIGHLY recommend these fab products:

Ohh La Lift - You know when you feel like you look like a raccoon, but you don't want to pile on a ton of concealer? Well, this stuff is magical--it de-puffs you and gives a slight illumination to your under-eye area. It's magic--seriously.

Benetint - You may already know the joys of Benetint, but if not, here you go. You get a perfectly natural stain for cheeks and lips that doesn't fade. Think, you just drank some red fruit punch...and your lips are stained for the entire day. It's a good thing, trust me.

Boi-ing - If you haven't slept in 3 days, or you just had a rough night--this industrial strength concealer makes it all go away (except for the hang-over part).

Blue Herbal Spot Treatment - Every girl knows that good skin is clean skin--and tight, shrunken pores. Swipe it on before bed--wash it off in the morning.

Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer - Although the weather seems a bit bi-polar right now--this stuff gives you that just-enough beachy glow...really subtle, lightweight, and hydrating. And it has sunscreen.

Illuminating Veil - Oh boy...this stuff is so lovely. It's gives a slight, dewy shimmer...but not that artificial, teeny-bopper sparkle. And it's minerals, so it's healthy and safe for sensitive skin types. I recommend Nude Glow. Best of all it's around 10 bucks at your drugstore.

Enjoy!

Lex --so far so good with the blue herbal spot treatment...although I forgot to apply it last night...oops.

Lady--You're gonna love Ooh La Lift. I've officially stopped using concealer--unless I really really need it--thanks to OLL. Also, I have really sensitive eyes, and OLL doesn't irritate them.
