Valentine's Day Self-Gifting
You've heard of "re-gifting" but what about "self-gifting?" We're big fans, especially on days like Valentine's when even if you have a mate, they may be at a loss. So say thank your for the giant -sized box of chocolates and secretly check out our suggestions:
Did you know that when you meet a guy for the first time, studies show that he spends more than half that talk time just looking at your lips? (It could be worse.)
Treat yourself to a sexier pair of lips with Bliss Fabulips, with cork tree extract and peptide-inflating complex.It volumizes that pucker but doesn't dry out your lips.Check out all the products at Sephora. Oh-la-la.
What gal doesn't love some new mascara? Pick up the NXY "Boudoir Mascara Collection," with seven formulas and distinctive wands, each promising lengthening, and curled lashes.
For instance, the "Le Frou Frou" volumizes and lengthens lashes, using a dense "dome brush" to reach each lash, where as the "Pin-Up Tease" darkens and curl lashes with a hard bristle comb to separate and curl lashes.
So far, our favorite is "Za Za Zu" which is perfect for a night out. Fiber-infused to darken, lengthen, and volumize, it ues a soft, bristle brush large enough to cover all lashes in one swipe.
At $6 a pop, you can buy the entire collection for less than you'd pay for some brand's mascara.
We're wearing Maybelline's "Baby Lips" on a daily basis and already our lips look better - not chapped and baby - dewy. Besides loving the price ($3.99) we're mooning over the six tints. And sorry about the "Pink Punch," my favorite color, which is sold out. I bought one for all of the girlfriend's this V-day. As an added bonus, each mositurizing balm has an SFP of 20, essential these days. Oh-baby.
