Friday Finds: January 4, 2013.


1. Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum - $30.00
This hair serum has replaced my other favorite Argan Oil treatment as this one is better, if you can believe it. This feels like a serum as I rub it into my hands and then glide over my hair. It is great for the dry winter frizzies and flyaways. Plus the shine I get while using this is incredible.

2. BUXOM Divine Goddess Luminizer in Venus - $28.00
This beautiful cream luminizer in the shade Venus is warming up my skin with an incandescent glow. The light sheer, shimmering finish is perfect to mix with foundation, or wear under or over it. I like wearing it high on my cheekbones over foundation, after I apply bronzer.

3. beautyADDICTS™ SHOWOFF Mascara - $20.00
This mascara infused with Argan Oil brings the wow. The curved brush helps deposit the super lengthening formula onto lashes as the oil conditions and protects them while wearing. Even better, just one coat that never clumps or smudges is all I  need for a long lash everyday look.

4. M·A·C Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm Compact SPF 30 - $30.00
This solid balm evens skin tone, blurs imperfections, enhances natural luminosity and retexturizes skin, all with an SPF of 30 to prime skin for a flawless look. If you have very even skin, you could get away with this on your own. For me, I use this under foundation as a primer. My foundation hasn't looked better in a long time.

5. Sephora Collection Outrageous Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow Taupe #6 - $16.00
There is nothing quite like a metallic taupe shadow. It is the perfect shadow to accent my eyes. This creamy soft metallic shadow glides onto my lids and leaves the most beautiful taupe shade I crave. It is perfect for any look day or night. I use it dry for day, but kick it up by applying it wet for night.

That Buxom luminizer looks very pretty to brighten my pale skin.
Nice picks this week.
I have to try the MAC BB compact. I need coverage too. What foundation do you wear over it? I have Studio Fix powder foundation. I wonder if the two would work together. thanks!
Haley - You will love the BUXOM luminizer. It was supposed to have launched the last week in December, but I just got word that it will be available at Sephora this week. I will be updating the post with a link once I have it.
Myriam - Thanks! I appreciate the compliment and comment.
Valerie - The MAC BB Balm would be perfect under Studio Fix. It is creamy and velvety at the same time. I have to use a powder or foundation over it, because I am using the darkest shade Light Plus, and it is very light. Too light to wear on my NC30 skin on its own. I actually prefer it with a powder over it. It's a quick and easy face.
I have to pick up that Sephora Prisma Chrome Metallic Eyeshadow, too. It looks so close to the Laura Mercier holiday shadows that were just beautiful. Great picks!
Thanks! I'm N3 in the powder foundation, really fair. So, I'm glad the BB is light. I'm going to buy it.
Nancy - this is very similar to the Laura Mercier shadows and that is what drew me to it when I couldn't find the LM one I wanted.
Valera- Let me know what you think. Definitely try it in store to get the color selection right. I was confused looking at all three colors and couldn't really tell until I actually put each shade on. My sister is an NC20 and the Light was good for her, while the Light Plus was better for me, an NC30. It is still much lighter than that though, so do be sure to test.
