stuff i love | beauty buys

I've been using MAC's powder blush in Tenderling for a couple of years now and recently ran out. Because I was feeling lazy and didn't want to go to the mall for blush and because I really didn't want to go to the mall to pay $18 for blush, I decided I'd try something cheap while I was doing my weekly shopping at Target. I look at this blush every morning and I figured I could probably find something similar. I wandered over to the CoverGirl section and spotted that little beauty above, Classic Color blush in Soft Mink. Brought it home and held it next to what I had left of my MAC and you know what? Exact match! The CoverGirl has a tad more sparkle to it, but I like it. And I really like the $4.99 price tag.

In other beauty-related finds, I found the perfect natural shade of lip gloss. See, I am not a strong lip girl. I have relatively thin lips and whenever I wear dark or bright lipstick I look like an old lady. I prefer to have a natural lip. My girlfriends gave me a kooky little kit from TINte Cosmetics for my birthday and it included that fun Vintage Lip Color tin. The perfect shade! How lucky is that? Peaches and Cream ($14--a little pricey, but can you put a price on perfection?) and it pairs perfectly with Ulta's Contour Lip Pencil in Spice ($7).

Just thought I'd share.
