This One's for the Girls!

I can't help myself. I'm pretty sure I'm addicted to make-up. Cheap stuff, expensive stuff, sometimes kind of crazy sparkly stuff and well, I'm okay with it! And, I have to give credit where credit is due. My friend, Kim, the gal who told me about the bronzed eyeliner by Wet N Wild last week, is the same gal that told me about this find.

Have you ever noticed, in the afternoon, that you are completely unrecognizable in the bathroom mirror? Granted, the lighting is probably not the best, you're a little tired from staring at a computer for a majority of the day but seriously, I have found myself saying, aloud, "Who are you and what hole did you crawl out of?" I'm not quite sure WHAT happens to the face that had been staring me in the mirror just a few short hours ago. That's when I just shake my head, attempt to look presentable by brushing my hair and sometimes changing the style a bit, add some spray and then it hits me. My face looks exactly the same. Similar to the road kill I passed on my way into work that morning. Damn! 

Alas, I think I've found the solution to that unrecognizable road kill that had once crawled out of a hole only to see his demise of two headlights roaring at him at a speed of somewhere between holy hell and aww shit! It's Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Liquid Foundation.

Unlike other foundations, it's quite inexpensive. I paid just $6.49 for it at the drugstore. And, what I'm loving about Rite-Aid, Wal-greens and CVS is that if you purchase the wrong shade, they will take it back, no questions asked! Just keep your receipt. 

Don't get me wrong, I will still ALWAYS visit my favorite make-up store, Sephora.  They have Hello Kitty make-up and well, I can't NOT have some Hello Kitty make-up. They also have the BEST lipstick. Sephora's own brand of lipstick Lip Attitude. Just 12 bucks. I know, most lipstick from the drugstore is cheaper but when you find something you really like and you can afford it, I say go for it. My favorite shade of Lip Attitude is Dolce Nude especially when paired up with a dark smokey eye. 

Isn't she just TOO CUTE?!   

So, while I promise this won't be a blog about make-up and will be a blog about good deals well, today, you're getting a little of both. I also promised that I'd give you a tip or two at the end of each entry so here's my tip of the day and it's NOT deal related..sorry. If you have a blemish and you've made it red because you just HAD to pick at it, take a Q-tip and squeeze a bit of eye drops on the tip. Dab your blemish(s) and watch the redness disappear. SERIOUSLY, IT WORKS!!! Not that I ever get acne...I've just heard that this works. LOL!

And here's the BONUS!! Sales Circular! This website will automatically compare prices of all the sales in your area and tell you which store has the lowest price of what you're looking for. Check it out! It does everything for you so you don't have to go to each individual website. Saving time..well, that's just like putting money in your pocket! (Ok, maybe not but you get my drift!)

Erin, not just afternoon that I stared in the mirror and don't know WHO that wrinkled face is, it is whenever and wherever from now on hehe... but then, as long as your Dad thinks that "WHO" in the mirrors still look good, I would say that's ME! LOL! I like the tips on Q-tip and the eye drop. I cannot understand why I still get acne at my age but very soon I can tell you if that really works! LOL!
