in my makeup bag

we are all so faithful to our beauty products
 and i thought i'd share a few of mine: 

revlon colorstay makeup in ivory with spf 15, then a light dusting of coty airspun powder in naturally neutral

maybelline lash stiletto mascara and liquid liner in blackest black.  if i could only have one item of makeup,
it would be mascara, and it would have to be maybelline.

my one indulgence (or at least it feels that way since i can't get it at the drugstore) is stila cosmetics.  i got this lovely set with a gift card at christmas (thank you nick) and it's the only color i've worn on my face all year. 

in the summer, i wear tinted balm, and natural products seem to work the best for me. 
burt's bees- red dahlia
kiss my face- amethyst and pearl

what works for you?


  1. shanda, i came for a visit to your new site. :) beautifully done. i agree about the single necessity being mascara. i use maybelline's the falsies volume express waterproof. lips- i use burt's bees (the original and a tinted one called rose, i think) and lush's (honey trap). hope you and your boys are having a wonderful day. xo

  2. thanks for the comments! i used volume express before lash stiletto came out.
