Friday Finds: March 8, 2013.

new spring makeup

Hope you had a great week. Mine has been pretty low key. I had my wisdom teeth out last Friday so I've been taking it easy and eating a lot of ice cream - yum! Because I've had so much extra time on my hands, I have been playing with a lot of new makeup and trying out some looks. Here are a few of the new makeup discoveries that I made in the process.

1. & 2. COVERGIRL LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm in Apricot Twist (1) & Haute Pink Twist (2) - $8.49
I really like this new Jumbo Gloss Balm in the shade I have, Ballet Twist, so I decided to buy a few more with more color. These large sticks of color are fortified with Shea and Mango butters to keeps lips moisturized as they are softly colored. I bought Apricot Twist & Haute Pink Twist. Apricot Twist is a soft peachy rose shade that I have found myself wearing almost everyday. It is that perfect "natural lip but better" looking shade. Haute Pink Twist is another shade that is getting me out of my natural lip shade This is a really hot pink, but wearable because of the formula.

3. Benefit Cosmetics Creaseless Cream Shadow in Skinny Jeans - $20.00
This creamy long-wearing shadow is not only a great cream shadow, I am loving the color Skinny Jeans. This shade is a beautiful soft metallic taupe. I love using it all over my lid as a base color and then layer a darker powder in the crease and a highlighter on my brow bone. It's like an instant sexy and super easy eye.

4. L'Oreal Infallible The Super Slim 12H Liquid Eyeliner - $8.95
This long wearing black liner comes in a felt-tip for great control. What I really love about this one is that it is a thinner felt tip than what I am used to. It allows for a very precise line. And of course, I love how this one lasts. I've seen perfect results past the 12 hour mark. Really - this liner doesn't come off until you purposely take it off.

5. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Lilac Rose - $42.00
I haven't purchased a new Shimmer Brick in quite some time, but as soon as I saw this new limited edition beauty with Bobbi's spring shades, I had to buy it. With strips of bright pink, golden pink, and icy pink pearl pigments I was instantly smitten. The color it leaves on my cheeks is so beautifully soft and shimmering in these shades of pink that look beautiful on my skin. It's perfect for all skin tones and a must for a spring face.
