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.

I have to have it: Amway light-up lip gloss

How cool is this?

My friend Chrissy was in town from San Francisco. Before we went to Lucali, we were at an event at the Darby Downstairs. When she whipped out her lip gloss in the darkened club, I was impressed.

Chrissy always looks fabulous so I was expecting her lip gloss to be Chanel, or maybe Bobbi Brown. Nope.

“Amway!” she revealed. You can buy light-up lipgloss (and other items) from her here

Note: not a sponsored post. Just a cool tip I wanted to share.

Things I love about NYC: Ricky’s

When I lived in DC, I forgot about Ricky’s.

My bad. Ricky’s is awesome.

Picture a supermarket but filled only with beauty items. I inevitably go there for one thing and leave with, like, seven.

This time I stood in confused awe by the styling wands. Ricky’s had such a range of options that I realized I needed to do some research before committing.

Paralysis by analysis.
