A Few Recent Love Affairs

December 19, 2012

I’ve recently stumbled upon a few products that I love so much, I knew I had to share them with you! The best part is that all of them are less than $15.

  1. Revlon ColorBurst Lip™ Butter

    For us girls who normally only wear ChapStick rather than lipstick, I’ve found an alternative that leaves lips feeling hydrated while providing a fresh pop of color. My favorite shade right now is Pink Truffle. Available at all drug stores, a tube will cost around $5 or less. Score!

  2. Bare Naked Wipes

    These gentle makeup removing wipes are a little touch of luxury at the end of the day. They have the loveliest, lightest scent ever. It is amazing. Plus, they’re gentle enough to use to remove eye makeup. A package of 30 will cost $12 at Sephora, which isn’t too costly. However, I’ll probably stick to the Neutrogena wipes I can get at Sam’s for about a third of the cost. But I sure do love these Bear Naked Wipes.

  3. Orly Decades of Dysfunction Nail Lacquer

    This is my first experience with Orly Nail Lacquer, and I’m quite smitten. I normally never paint my nails, because I can’t keep the polish from chipping within the first couple of days of wear. This polish lasted a week, even without base and top coats. (All of my polish is in storage.) This shade is a Dark Shadows limited edition color called Decades of Dysfunction. I found mine at Sally’s Beauty Supply for around $3 on clearance. I also found it on Amazon here. This shade is the most perfect, pretty shade of pink I’ve found to date. I received numerous compliments on it. Also worth mentioning is the handle, which it is made out of a rubbery-material for easy opening.

  4. Twisted Peppermint Scent at Bath and Body Works

    I LOVE this scent. It immediately makes me think of the holidays whether I’ve just lit a candle or used some hand sanitizer while out and about. The scent itself isn’t overpowering. It makes me happy, and isn’t that what it’s all about? Plus, the sales at Bath and Body Works cannot be beat.

Those are the four products I’ve been enjoying for the past few weeks. I’ll admit that I may have purchased half of them to console myself after we weren’t able to close on our house a few weeks ago.

What products have you been loving lately? You never know when I’ll need to take another shopping trip to console myself…
