Hi guys! I recently picked up some stuff on my "need to try this" list at Walgreens!
First: Milani Liquif'Eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil in 03 Gold and 04 Aqua
I have the black, silver, and brown and I LOVE them for the waterline (that line above your lower lash line). I first heard about how awesome these were from Holly Ann-Aeree - thanks the recommendation, hun!
I need to collect all of them! Milani also recently came out with a purple and a green, so I'll pick those up soon. Here are some packaging pictures (click to make larger):
These are soooo creamy but stay on without any smudging - after swatching these I scrubbed with my hands under soap and water with nothing moving. They only came off with makeup remover :) Here are the swatches:
Next: Banana Boat Sport Performance Sunscreen Lip Balm SPF 50 with UVA Protection!!
It is pretty impossible to find a high UVA/UVB sunscreen lip balm that doesn't dry the lips and doesn't smell terrible. This product smells sweet and tastes great, and is actually really moisturizing!
I've been on the lookout for this lip balm FOREVER. This is on Paula Begoun's Best Lip Products List on Beautypedia. Her write-up on the product is here:
"More lip balms with reliable broad-spectrum sun protection are needed, and here's an excellent one to add to your list. UVA protection is assured from avobenzone, and the emollient, balm-like base is ideal for keeping lips protected from chapping and moisture loss. It is frarance-free and flavored with the artifical sweetener saccharin."
I will be doing a post soon on How Sunscreen Works (I'll hyperlink this text once I write the post), and the importance of UVA sunscreen being included in your sunscreen products (often UVA protection is not included in sunscreen products)
Next: Vaseline Lip Therapy mini!! It's so cute!
I saw that Jen at FrmHeadToToe recently picked this up and I couldn't resist - I think this will be great for travel, and vaseline is good for lips, feet, elbows, knees, and for avoiding blisters on the feet just rub some on before putting on your heels!
Next: Colgate Wisps
These seem like a good idea to carry in my pink purse pack...I'll report back soon haha
Do you have any of these products?? Let me know what you think!
Please comment, share with friends, pin the pics on Pinterest, subscribe....you know the deal! xoxo
