Cheap thrills

You know how I started spending all kinds of cash on skin care? I’m still doing that.

But two of my current favorite makeup products* are inexpensive items I picked up at CVS.

[Although both are Maybelline, this is not a sponsored post.]

First, this brow pomade crayon. You know I love to talk about eyebrows.

I started using the crayon – in blonde – after this other brow product (which I bought in transparent) started making my skin breakout.

I like the way it fills in my brows without making them look too strong.

Second, I found another lipstick I love.

Is this OK?

My mother told me it’s OK to refresh your lipstick in public.

But no more than that. Everything else – mascara, concealer, eyeliner – should be saved for the restroom.

I winced each time the subway jostled this lady while she had pointy things by her eyes.

Nude lips

It works for some. Great examples here via ImNotBarbie and below.

 

Not for all. Sadly, I’m in the Not camp. Without lip color, I look like a cadaver.

I asked makeup pro Raychel Wade for insights.

“I love a nude lip!  Personally it’s my favorite look.  And if fact, often times it can make you look more youthful.  I know that some people feel like a corpse with it on, so here’s a trick.  Pull your bottom lip out and match a lipstick the inside skin color of your lip.  Weird, I know.  But if you feel too pale in a true nude this will give you a close, natural option!”
I need to try this.  If you do, let me know in the comments how it goes.
