As I Cee It

thursday three: beauty products.

Posted on: April 16, 2015

Confession: I’m hopeless at makeup and the like. I can’t get with it. Don’t want to learn. And I’m terrified that if I ever did start wearing makeup, I would instantly believe that I could not leave home without it. With that said, I do quite enjoy nail polish and I’ll throw on some lip gloss every now and again. So this Thursday, here are the things that I like:

Natural Lip Roll On – Rose by The Body Shop

I happened upon this lip balm by accident. I was in the airport and my lips were all the way cracked. It was annoying and embarrassing. I decided to drop in The Body Shop to see if I could find something semi-cheap that I could throw on my lips to help. I’d been trying another product that wasn’t working. I didn’t really want the Rose scent/flavor, but I believe it was the best out of what was available. I’m incredibly satisfied with this product. It fixed my lips really quickly and they haven’t cracked like that since. (The link I found for the Rose one was for the UK. The above link leads to the Berry roll on.)

ColorBurst Lip Butter – Berry Smoothie by Revlon

I lean towards berry lip colors and I doubt that will stop. I ran out of the Avon Extra Lasting Lip Gloss in Everlasting Petal that I was using. I picked this one up in Rite Aid and fell in love with the color. I also love that it’s not sticky.

Lasting Finish Pro Nail Enamel – Stiletto Red by Rimmel

Nail polish is great. I’m not very good at applying it, but I can fake it enough that my nails don’t look too horrible, unless you look too closely. Red is my favorite color of nail polish. At any given time, I’ll have 3-5 different shades of red. For a while, Sally Hensen’s Red Carpet was my favorite red. Then I met this one. Rimmel has pretty amazing reds. Stiletto Red is no exception. The brush on the Lasting Finish Pro is also shaped different, and makes application a bit easier.  (The link is for eBay as I couldn’t find one for this color. I think it may be discontinued.)

Hardly in the Ville, but always reppin. #vacation #beach #gatornation #gogators #Summer18
The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
