October Blogging Challenge Day 28: All Time Favorite Beauty Products
Doing this blogging challenge has taught me that I can be a blogger. I love having my own little corner of the internet and although I would love people to read it, I don’t really care if they do or not. I post my blogs to Twitter but have not yet been brave enough to post them on Facebook. Feel free to help me out :). ALSO I would like to officially announce that I am now a part of Blogging For Books and will be doing book review blog posts for them. So that’s fun.
I strayed away from the suggested October Blogging Challenge posts for the past few days, but now I’m back on it. I wouldn’t consider myself a beauty guru by any means, but I do love makeup. I don’t wear it because I think I need to and I don’t even wear a lot (I don’t think). I genuinely enjoy experimenting with it and putting it on in the morning. It’s a fun and semi-therapeutic way to prepare for the day. So this is my “all time beauty favorites.”
Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara – If I could only use one makeup item (besides chapstick, of course) for the rest of my life, it would be this stuff. It works miracles. I’ve used it on and off for about 4 years and it really does help your lashes grow.
OPI Lincoln Park After Dark – This is always my favorite nail color in the fall and winter. I can’t wait to break it out. I like it because it looks almost black, but it’s really a deep, dark purple. Don’t forget the gold sparkles, yo.
Cover Girl Powder – I first started wearing makeup in 9th grade because someone (who shall not be named) told me my face looked shiny. This is what I used to counteract that and I still repurchase and use it to this day.
Vera Wang Princess Perfume – Feel free to punch me after I say this, but I like to consider myself the hipster of this perfume. I got it for Christmas in 9th grade and am still obsessed with it after going through 4 bottles (in 8 years, dang). It became pretty popular after that. I definitely don’t take baths in it (aka spray it 806 times on myself) anymore (teen angst), but I like wearing it every couple days.
Revlon Color Burst Balm Stain – These are nice and minty. I hate actual lipstick so these are good for a safe splash of color. My favorite colors are Honey and Crush.
EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint – Some people call them eggs, some people call them orbs, I just like to call it EOS. I have a thing for mint –chapsticks, gum, mint oreos– and this is by far my favorite mint flavored lip balm. Good story.
Chi 44 Iron Guard – College taught me how to be lazy when it comes to my hair. However, when I used to straighten the crap out of it in high school, I discovered this savior. You brush it through you hair before using heat tools and it protects your strands from the heat damage.
Well, now you know all my secrets. I still love Taylor Swift.
