Often times I have so much I want to tell you about, but due to my lack of time management skills and coming home from work exhausted, I just don't get the posts written. That's why I have started Friday Favorites, where I will give you a quick rundown on products I am absolutely loving and really want you to know about!
Gelish Basix Kit • $54.99 – Okay, so I have had this Gelish soak-off gel system for awhile now. A long time, to be honest. The first time I tried it, it was a disaster. Was it the system’s fault? No. I simply can’t read directions!
I have a different role at work than I did a few months ago. Basically, I open boxes all day, do planograms, unload palettes off trucks, etc. I love it because I get all the exercise I need at work, but it is HELL on my hands. After seeing it mentioned on Facebook I decided to use this system as a base coat for my polish. I only apply the Foundation and the Top It Off, then apply regular polish over it. It’s really helped keep my nails from peeling and to stop further damage. Basically I apply it on Thursdays (my day off) and remove it a week later and start over. The first time (this time around) it came out a little lumpy, but I am getting the hang of it!
You can see what it looks like on its own here. I also had it on when I swatched the entire OPI Mustang collection – can you tell?
Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in Caribbean Sea • $15.00
I have been obsessed with finding the perfect teal liners this summer. I want a shimmery blue teal AND a shimmery green teal. I found the green when I was given the chance to try Mally Caribbean Sea. It’s the perfect shade and better yet, it stays all day! You can purchase it on its own for $15.00 or as part of this amazing set from QVC – on sale for only $12.50!
My hoarding tendencies have come out - I want to buy ALL THE MALLY EYELINERS!
CoverGirl Waterproof LashBlast Volume Mascara • $6.79 – Picked this up during my recent Walgreen’s trip because I needed a waterproof mascara, it was on sale AND it had a clipless coupon! I figured I couldn’t go wrong… And I am amazed at this stuff! I have used LashBlast in the past but I don’t remember it being this awesome! See it in action on my Instagram.
Carmex Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm Clear, Satin Gloss Finish • $2.69 – HOW CUTE are these Carmex lipbalms? I always thought Carmex in the pot worked great, but smelled too strong. Plus, germs! Ew! So when I was offered the chance to try these, I jumped on it! I love the soft vanilla flavor. I have one in each purse! You can find them where Carmex is usually sold. I just saw them at Walmart!
