Beauty Product Essentials

Well my darlings, it appears we have made it to the oh so coveted Friday. To kick off your weekend right, I wanted to talk about something very near and dear to my heart, beauty products. Ladies, I don't use a ton of products, but those that I do use, I am very loyal to. You know, the kind of loyalty where you are telling every Tom, Dick and Harry to get on board? That is how I feel about my beauty regimen. Let's discuss. 

Egyptian Magic. So. This is THE best unknown skin hydration product on the planet. I am not even shitting you. When you open it, it appears to be a little like petroleum jelly but people, this stuff can clear up just about anything. I was using a new skin product which made my face break out and dry up. Insert Egyptian Magic, and it was cleared up in a matter of days. No wonder Cleopatra was a dime.
Chloe Parfum. Best parfum on the planet. This fragrance sparks total and complete creepiness. When I first discovered it from a friend, I was smelling her up and down on the regular. Now I have complete strangers doing the same. Weirdly flattering. 
No. 7 Cleanser. Best skin cleanser on the market. I am totally digging all of Target's No7 products by Boots. Price is right as well as my skin after usage. Get it. 
St. Tropez Tanner. Since I am fair skinned, I have been trying to use the self tanner approach as opposed to the aggressive laying out skin cancer approach. At first it was a difficult transition, but I look more bronze than I ever did before. This shiz works miracles. 
YSL Touche Eclat. Best under eye product that ever walked. I am not even kidding people. Apply this in a triangle formation in a one shade lighter than your foundation, under your eye for immediate definition. People constantly ask me how much sleep I am getting. I am fooling them. Trust me. 
Lipquench. Totally happened upon this product by mistake. I work with a young guy who went to the dermatologist who gave him free samples. He was completely uninterested and dropped this on my desk. This stuff hydrates your lips and also gives them the perfect glow. Thank you for the discards. 
Nars Blush in Orgasm. Best blush ever for every skin type ever made. Ever. Period. 
Mascara. Who doesn't want long luscious lashes? I rest my case. 
Nars Lip in Cruising Pink. So call me behind the times, but I cannot get on board with the red/coral lipstick craze y'all are rocking. It just doesn't work for me. I stick with the light pink and nude lip colors. When it comes to lips, I go for the barely there look. Sorry not sorry.
