Beauty Marked

I've been wanting to do a beauty post for a while and recently noticed myself consistently reaching for the same products. So without further a due, here are some of my recent favorites: 1. L'Occitane Baume Ultra Riche Yeux Eye Balm. I love the consistency: it's not too light/'liquidy' or too thick. The lack of obvious fragrance is kind of nice.2. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil Free. Great, light feel. Perfect prep for foundation. Definitely can feel the ease of applying makeup on top. 3. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment - Rose Tinted. Having tried all kinds of lip balms, sticks, and tubes, this is a definite favorite. It moisturizes, smells great, and has a light, rosy tint. I like the lipstick more than the non-tinted balm, which feels a bit grainy and too much like brown sugar straight from the kitchen cabinet. If your birthday is in June and a Sephora member, you might want to stop by a Sephora store as they've recently been giving out trial size birthday gifts of the Fresh Sugar. (Thanks S. for the scoop :) 4. Benefit Cosmetic They're Real Mascara. I first got this as a free trial sample and frankly, the label scared me with its claim to do all sorts of supernatural things to mortal lashes. But after using it a few times, I found myself reaching over other mascaras for this one. As for lip plumpers, I fear them still...
