I’m not much of a foundation, concealer, pressed powder user.

During the summer I decided to try a BB cream with SPF for protection and a hint of color.

I chose Maybelline Dream Fresh BB.


This product is really nice because it smooths complexion and is very lightweight. I primarily used it as a sunscreen.

I have experienced rosacea and wanted a way to cover the pink tone and blemishes. Since I use a light moisturizer, I decided it would be beneficial to go with a shine-free mousse instead of a liquid or powder.

I chose to try Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse.



For someone who doesn’t want a fake-cakey looking appearance and has sensitive skin, this product ended up being perfect.

I use a very small amount, less than what fits on the end of a Q-Tip.

It is very smooth to apply and when it sets it keeps your face matte and glowing all day long. It does not make me break out with blemishes nor does it clog my pores.

I highly recommend these products!


Thoughts? What do you use?

’tis the season for chapped lips

On my side of town, it is getting colder and lips are getting drier.

As soon as the temperature dropped below 40 my lips were instantly chapped.

Consider these products:

Vaseline Lip Therapy Image

1. It’s adorable.

2. It’s under $2

3. It also comes in Cocoa Butter formula

I put this on every night before bed.

Not interested in the tiny tubs? Just grab whatever vaseline petroleum jelly you have lying around the house and use that. It’s essentially the same thing!


Maybelline Baby Lips

The original colors are sheer, with wonderful flavors. I have 2 and LOVE them.

Maybelline has also released the Electro line for a bolder pop of color Image
