Yep, it’s here. The nm Beauty Awards from Neiman Marcus. It just so happens I am in need of some cosmetics.
In an attempt to not spend time in the malls with my children, I have forgone what I already know is a great brand in mascara – Lancome. I had been wearing it for years. Maybe because I was trying to save a little money, or maybe because I am in Target way more often than Von Maur, I have been using other brands… cheaper brands.
Well, I’m going to splurge on this new-to-me formula (Definicils has been my tried and true), because who doesn’t want Hypnose Drama Instant Full-Body lashes? Whatever that means…

I am also almost out of liquid make-up, something I never thought I’d wear until my friend, and make-up artist, informed me that powder makes you look older by highlighting fine lines. Ummm, I don’t need the help.
So I switched to liquid make-up, and I have to say that I actually like it. Especially when I choose something with moisturizer and SPF in it. I’ve never really had a favorite – so I’m going to give the winner a chance to prove its worth!
And since spring is just around the corner, and summer isn’t far behind, a tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 from Laura Mercier could be just what the doctor ordered – especially because I don’t like to wear much make-up in the summer. Ok, really ever.
