So you just apply a little bit to030513 theblam put a lid on it eyelid primer certified fabulous your eyelids (lash line to eyebrow), and then apply your makeup as usual. The primer is a nude color and it absorbs well, leaving a smooth surface for you to apply shadow, etc. It did not crease or create any weird texture with my eye shadow, and the hues and my liquid liner stayed bold and smudge free all day!

Hey Fabulous Readers!

Well this week we've all been talking about nail polish and new fun colors.  hot-ticket-web v2I always seem to feel (no matter how I try not to) like I'm just running on adrenaline.  If it's not picking up party goods for the kids classroom parties, its last minute Christmas shopping because I just realized that I forgot someone on my list.  Sleep, who needs sleep right?

As many of you know I'm addicted to doing mud runs.  Recently I competed in one of the toughest, the Spartan Race- www.spartanrace.com .  Although only a 5k, there are 15 grueling obstacles that include crawling under barbed wire, carrying 20 pound sand bag up and down a hill and my favorite of all time, the bunny hop up hill in the mud for 50 feet.  Needless to say this was not for someone that had not trained and was just out for a stroll.  The terrain was rough and very muddy and for every obstacle that you couldn't complete, 30 burpees were waiting for you.  (if you don't know what burpees are.. youtube.com)

So I thought, if this is going to be this rough, why not test a nail polish.  There's no way any woman is going to put their nails through this much abuse during a regular work week. So if the polish can handle the ultimate mud run, it can handle an everyday work experience.  I chose "All you ever do is taupe" from theBalm, Inc cosmetics, www.thebalm.com.  All their polishes have crazy wacky names, which I love.  This particular color is a delicious combination of silver with a hint of copper in it.  So you get a bit of...well..taupe, but a little silver too.  It's a really pretty color and looks great with dark skin tones.  Before the race i applied 2 coats of the polish and set off to put it to the test.  Between the rope climbs and bear crawls in the mud, by the end of the race I thought for sure my polish would be trashed.  After fighting off the Spartans at the end, I looked at my nails and through all the mud and blood and glory, there sparkling thru was my pretty polished nails. 


Just when you think you can't have glamour and guts, the Balm can make that happen for you!

Happy Friday Everyone!  So now that we're past the first major holiday of the year, it's now only a slippery slope into December.  Walmart, like many other retailers already has their Christmas decorations on the floor ready for purchase.

 

As many of you know, I'm addicted to trying the newest beauty products but I also love the new vibe of small beauty companies.  There are so many companies that have amazing products.  So I thought that I would give all my new finds a shout out this week.

 

Willa Wash MobileOne morning I was listening to the Today Show and the ladies were talking about Willa Skin Care (www.willaskincare.com) and their  tinted moisturizer.  They were raving about it and said that they had it at Target.  So I went and thought, I'm always up for trying a new tinted moisturizer, especially if it protects the skin with an SPF 30 rating!  Sure enough all their ranting and raving was correct.  It is very light weight, no odor (which I love and often with a zinc oxide you'll have a odor)and blends with your skin tone.  I really like to wear this moisturizer when I run, because it doesn't move and sweat off.  Better yet, it doesn't clog your pores either!
