This week, my favorite product is…
What? Brow Box – Brown Sugar by Urban Decay (they offer a lighter palette as well.)
Where? Online at Urban Decay; Online and in store at Ulta (this is my personal preference) Make sure you sign up for an Ulta Rewards Card and start racking up those points with purchase. You will receive coupons and freebies! Who doesn’t like that combo?!
Why? Remember how we talked last week about the importance of accentuating the eyes? Brows play a huge role in that. You can be the best make-up artist around, but if your brows are unruly, too thin, too thick, too dark or light, you may as well forget all the time you spend on your lids and lashes. In fact, many make-up artists and stylists say a great brow shaping is second only to an eye lift. Don’t believe me? Try it! The great thing about Ulta is that they have a professional who can assist with questions, shaping, concerns and anything relating to your brows. I love this product because it’s precise. The little drawer at the bottom has wax to set the brows after you achieve the desired color. (TIP: each time you use the brush, before putting it away, wipe it from side to side on a paper towel. Do not put unneeded strain or pull on the bristles.) It also has miniature tweezers for those stray brow hairs you catch in the rear view mirror. It is quite handy!
Cost? Worth every penny! Okay for real, it’s just under $30 and it lasts forever!
Go ahead… try it! You’ll thank me.
About this whole beauty thing… It’s easy to play. Here’s what you do:
1. List your favorite product or routine in the comments section below (it has to be something that you have tried.) Answer these 4 things, 1. What (Is the product or routine?) 2. Where (can you find it?) 3. Why (do you love it?) 4. Cost (ballpark figure, less than $10, less than $20, and so on.)
2. You may have 100 things, like I do when it comes to mascara, moisturizer and the things we would have a hard time choosing between if asked, “Out of these things, what 1 thing would you take if stranded on a desert island?” You can list a new one each week. Start with your favorite.
3. Before you know it, we will have an amazing list of products loved by real people. We will pick one favorite each week.
Please share this with your friends and in no time we will have a list to rival anything that the magazines are flashing.

I’ll play! 🙂
I have several “favorite” items, but for today, I’ll give my newest one!
What: Clinique Age Defense BB Cream. I have not worn Clinique products in years, but this morning routine product is amazing!!
Where: You can find it at any Clinique counter in department stores, at Sephora, online, etc. It’s not hard to get your hands on this gem! 😉
Why? What’s not to love! It’s a lightweight tinted moisturizer (moisturizes and covers blemishes), makeup primer, antioxidant cream for age prevention, and offers SPF protection, all in one little tube! I’ve been using it for about a month now, and it’s done great things for my skin. At first I was a little apprehensive. I mean, with all that stuff inside it, how in the world would this not break me out? But in fact, the results were just the opposite. I’ve not had any breakouts, my skin has felt smoother, and I’ve been able to wear less make-up!
Cost: Around $37, but for everything it does, I think it’s a steal!
YAY! Thanks for playing Tara! Your product will be featured next! 🙂
And, I need to run out get some of this cream!
