As an admitted beauty junkie, I want to try everything! But that just is not realistic from a practical or a financial standpoint. So here are the top items that are on my “want” list!
- A recent product launch from Burt’s Bees, the Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon, looks terrific. It looks like a great tinted lip moisturizer that actually has some color to it. Judging from the online swatches, I would probably choose Hawaiian Smolder (a more noticeable raspberry) or Niagara Overlook (a softer medium pink), but might select differently once I see the options in person.
- One brand in particular that I have my eye on is Stowaway Cosmetics. Their claim to fame is “right size” products at a reasonable price point. They claim that their products come in sizes that you will actually use up before they expire. The collection currently only contains six products (beauty balm, concealer, cheek/lip color, crème lipstick, eyeliner and two mascaras). I just wish that the Radiant Complexion Beauty Balm included sunscreen.
- Always on the lookout for multi-tasking products, I’m also eager to try Nudestix. They have an extensive selection of simple and multi-purpose pencils that seem to cover all your basic makeup needs. Each individual pencil purchase includes a storage tin with a mirror and a pencil sharpener. A couple of these vitamin-enriched crayons and you are good to go!
- One of my favorite retailers lately is Etsy, and I have my eye on two natural and organic skincare brands in particular — Chikyu and LaConchitaNaturals. Chikyu offers a wide variety of bath and body care as well as skin care. LaConchitaNaturals also offers makeup in addition to skincare. I’m most interested in the serums from Chikyu and the powder cleansers from LaConchitaNaturals.
