lorac_color_me_couture_shadow_palette.jpgLet’s face it, makeup palettes are the best invention since sliced bread. This LORAC Color Me Couture Eye Shadow Palette caught our eye on one of our many weekly visits to Sephora. The gorgeous clutch-like packaging houses 5 neutral colors infused with Mother of Pearl to help the catch light and really make eyes pop. Not only did we not hesitate to buy this, but we suggest you add this to your beauty arsenal as well.

Colors include:

Enlighten (shimmering creamy pearl)

Style (shimmering gold pearl)

Luxe (shimmering bronze pearl)

Jade (shimmering olive green with gold pearl)

Designer (shimmering black with gold pearl)


Sephora exclusive. $37,



In the crisp chill of winter, keeping skin moisturized is top priority for us. St. Ives Luxurious Whipped Silk Body Wash ($3.99 for 18 fl oz., is one we love using these days— it’s wallet-friendly and yet still gives us the lavish lather with natural moisturizing ingredients we might find in a pricer brand. Take that dry skin!

cgsmokyshadowblast.jpgSilky smooth and easy to apply, CoverGirl’s new Smoky Shadow Blast Eyeshadow makes creating the perfect smoky eye easy for those of us who aren’t professional makeup artists. With each tube containing two cream shadows of complimenting colors, we’re no longer bound to just the usual brown or black shades. Our tip if you have oily eyelids: Use a good shadow base or sheer powder eyeshadow to ensure these stay locked on for hours. Available in 6 shades. $8.49,
neutrogena5minutefacial.jpgWe like to save money in every way possible these days, but don’t want to skimp on results. Thankfully, drugstore brands have been stepping up their game and we are more than willing to give these products their fair chance. Neutrogena Ageless Restoratives 5 Minute Facial is a product we had to try as soon as we discovered it. This at-home peel is formulated with exclusive enzymes and micro-exfoliants to gently stimulate surface skin, improving cell renewal. Over the course of a few weeks, this 1-step wonder delivered the improvement to our skin’s texture and clarity, at a fraction of the cost of a visit to a professional’s chair. $25,


As beauty-loving women, we like to have our tips and toes polished. We love experimenting with the latest color trends as well as sticking to the classics. But as busy women, we don’t always have the time to sit and wait for our nails to dry. Thankfully, Sally Hansen created a great solution that we love: Insta-Dri Fast Dry Nail Color.  Available in 24 colors, it says it dries in 60 seconds. We, however find that after a little less than 2 minutes it’s completely the-polish-isn’t-going-anywhere dry. Once it is, we enjoy a lasting, good-looking finish that is strong and wears 3-5 days without chipping. Available in 24 shades. $4.99,
