Beauty CRUSH: Make up

I LOVE new make up! I have a weakness for NEW products. I get that from my grandma. Anything that has the word NEW on it she bought! I seem to do the same thing when it comes to beauty products and I’ve found some great new products I adore and wanted to share with you! Some of these products might not be NEW per say but they are new to me and I can’t keep this info to my self!

If I could marry a product it just might be this one! Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream is A-MA-ZING! I wear foundation all the time! I’ve been blessed with blotchy, red, uneven skin tone so I don’t have the luxury of going naked! Do I like having to wear foundation? Nope! Especially with summer weather just around the corner I really wanted to find another option! This cream is the answer! It’s a tinted moisturizer and light as air! It has the perfect amount of coverage and helps fix your problem skin helping with redness and evening out skin tone. It’s a super easy application. Just a tiny amount rubbed on like lotion and your all set! It comes in two shades: Light/Medium and Medium/Dark

$$$: about $12 sold at Walmart, Target and any drug store!


I’m a black Mascara kind of gal! I’ve always loved the classic Maybelline mascara that comes in the iconic green and pink bottle but I finally ventured out and tried something new. TART “Lights, Camera, Action” mascara is pretty darn fantastic! It’s great for thickening, lengthening and conditioning your lashes. Great addition to any make up bag.

$$$: $19 sold at Ulta, Sephora, and on line


If I had a BFF blush it would be this one! Mayballine Dream Bounce Blush is so so fun! I love a bright and dewy cheek and this NEW product is dreamy! My favorite shade is ” Candy Coral” and feels just like it says “bouncy!” I tap the blush onto my cheeks and blend with my fingers! It’s like a cream blush but more solid if that makes sense! This is a great product to try if you are looking for a fresh Spring pallet. I love the bright color choices.

$$$: $7 sold at Target, Walmart and any drug store.


Revlon’s Just Bitten Lip stain in ” Passion is my newest favorite Lip Stain! I adore lip stains! I think they are a great base for bold lips and long wear! This particular color and stain is a favorite of mine when I want a bold lip! It’s bright pink and works almost as an accessory when worn! It you’ve always wanted to wear a bold pink this might be the one for you and I love that it has a built in balm!

$$$: $6 sold at any drug store


When I want a more subtle lip I grab my Maybelline Color Sensational lip stain in ” In the Buff.” This shade is just slightly darker then  my natural lip and gives me just a tiny bit of color cheat! I love wearing it under a clear glossy.

$$$: $6 sold at Target or any drug store

A little shimmer never hurt a girl right! I am in LOVE with this Sonia Kashuk Eye Pallet in “Shimmering Sands. It’s a great natural base and the shimmer color options are perfect for sweeping over your lids to add a fun sparkle.

$$$: $14 sold only at Target


I know they say that beauty comes from within but Let’s face it! Beauty can come from Target too people! I love a great beauty find and would love to hear what you guys crush on! Tell me what you’re must haves are!

    Ok, thanks a lot! Now you’ve got me about to get in my car to head to the drug store!! LOL. I’ve actually really been wanting to try that Garnier BB Cream. I use Estee Lauder’s now but at $40 a bottle, it’s a little much, especially during the spring/summer months when I use it a lot! Thanks for sharing! xoxo

    I ordered then cream from amazon yesterday – it should be here tomorrow and I can’t wait to try it!! That blush sounds fun – adding it to my target list!

    I will have you know that I went right out and bought the lip stain! I love it. My husband hates lipstick getting all over the place so this is perfect when I need some color! You’re great!

    How funny, I JUST tried BB cream this week! I do NOT like liquid foundations or heavy foundations, i’ve been a Bare Minerals girl for YEARS now, cuz of the lighter coverage. BUT i’ve never used a tinted moisturizer before cuz i was afraid it would look like liquid makeup still on my skin. BUt i have to say i am LOVING the BB cream!!! It lets your own skin shine through enough, while still evening out your skintone and covering lightly. It may be my imagination but i feel my skin is getting nicer from wearing it this week as well?? anywho i’m in love and it’s perfect for hot summer days, i’ve been walking hard everyday this week too and it never smears off or gets blotchy from sweating, this stuff is heaven!!

    That is too cool that you blogged about Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream, Brandi Glanville from
    Reak Housewives of BH tweeted that as the best product. I went to my local CVS and bought
    it and I must say I LOVE IT!!! The best ever! I hope you have an awesome weekend!

    Diane your long time follower!

    My newest drug store make up love is also from Sonia Kashuk. It’s a blush in Sunset. The pigmentation is absolutely top rate. Lasts me almost the whole day through with only minor fading. The tangerine color is totally on trend and it makes me feel all glow-y and pretty. Bonus? I use it on my eyes as well-against my hazel colored eyes, it’s so pretty!

    Becca, I’ve tried the Boscia BB Cream and was rather fascinated by the texture and loved that it didn’t break me out. Didn’t love the price tag so much…If the reviews all over the net about this Garnier one holds true, I’d be more than happy to purchase it instead! What do you think of the texture? Thick at first but sinks in? Not breaking you out? Doesn’t feel greasy?

    I’d love to stay and chat longer but I need to go eat a cookie. Toodles!

      Garnier BB Cream is so light and never feels heavy. I haven’t broken out at all and seriously am in love with this stuff. Everyone who tries it is hooked instantly! Thanks for the blush recommendation! I am loving Sonia’s make up line! I must try!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for
    something relating to this.

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post
    I realized it’s new to me. Anyhow, I’m definitely
    happy I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back

    What’s up, I log on to your blogs on a regular basis.
    Your humoristic style is witty, keep doing what
    you’re doing!
