I’m usually clueless about what’s going on in the world of cosmetics and the like. I have been known to use the same make up or lip stick until it runs dry. Then when I go to buy another I discover it’s discontinued and/or the color is no longer available. Only then do I awaken to the newest big thing.
When I was in New York at RWA this summer, a friend of mine mentioned her Icelandic relief eye pen, which helped get rid of that annoying under eye puffiness. Hmm. I didn’t know that could be gotten rid of. I trotted after her into Sephora and discovered all sorts of cool things.
For instance–Cake Milk Made Hand and Cuticle Buffer. Oh my, this stuff is fantastic. I rub it on my hands for a minute, rinse and my usually dry, cracked fingers are smooooth. I love this stuff. Who knew?
Also-Sephora Brush on Cuticle Oil. And here I was pouring cuticle oil onto my fingers from the bottle. No, no, no! There is a lovely tube with a brush to paint on cuticle oil if you only look for it. Wow, the world has opened up to me.
I’ve also discovered the best lip stick ever. Revlon Colorstay Overtime does stay overtime. In fact, I can’t get the stuff off unless I use cream and a washcloth. After going out at night, I’ve still got lipstick on in the morning. Not only does it not come off unless forced to, but it doesn’t leave a lipstick mark on my coffee cup or wine glass. How do they do that?
Have any of you discovered some great new product lately? Share with me. I live in a cave. I never know about cool new things unless someone tells me.
