Has anyone come across a new beauty product that they are excited about?? I thought it might be good idea to have a thread where people can talk about new beauty finds that might work for some other gals/guys in the hive. Here’s mine:
I compulsively buy lip products; lip balm, gloss, stain, etc. Don’t know what it is (maybe because the colors are so pretty) but I can’t help but pick up a new shade when I go shopping. Funny thing is, I don’t wear anything on a daily basis, but I’m just so darned picky when I do. Anyway, I was on my way to a wedding this Saturday, when I stopped by a CVS to pick up some mascara. I walked through the aisle to see what else I could find and spotted Outlast Lip Stain by Cover Girl and I grabbed one in Plum Pout (425). I was so excited to try it on that I put it on as I drove to the wedding, in the dark (not recommended).
When I got there I looked in the mirror and I was shocked–it was the best red I have ever worn. Not only that, but I never had to apply it again all night. It didn’t flake and the color didn’t fade. I got so many compliments and people asking me what I was wearing that I thought I should share it here too. Here’s the link http://www.covergirl.com/products/product.jsp?productId=outlast_lipstain’ defer=’defer for some more info. Best $5 I’ve spent to date. Hands down. And it might be a great option for brides who are worried about reapplying lipstick all night.

What color stain did you get?

“Plum Pout.” I had hoped it would have been a deep berry stain but it turned out to be an awesome red!

I recently discovered Coastal Scents (http://www.coastalscents.com) and I am in love with their products! In particular, I really like the stippling brush they carry. It sheds a bit but applies liquid foundation wonderfully. I believe it was ballpark $8 a fraction of the cost of a department store stippling brush! I just ordered their 88 Warm Palette and I’m hoping to get it before Fiance and I take off for Thanksgiving.

I just recently discovered LORAC lip/cheek stain. Oh where has it been all my life?? Love it!! Stay on all day and gives such a great natural flush to my cheeks. It’s kinda pricey at nearly $30 for a bottle. But I’ve been using it for a month everyday and it doesnt even looked like I used it, so I’m sure it’ll be in my makeup bag for a while.
I used to love those CG lipstains…but they dried out sooo quickly! Like half the ones I bought at the store (sealed and everything) were dry when I opened them. Boo. Whatever shad 420 is (its on my desk now) it’s a great natural pinky lip color that just ever so naturally darkens you lips.

I have been really wanting to try the new Bare Minerals Matte. If I get it this weekend I’ll let you know! I’m lovin’ the Body Shop “Lippies” Cranberry Shimmer lip gloss. So yummy, not sticky, beautiful sheer red with sparkles. Love it!
