Favorite Things Thursday

Let me preface this by saying, I am not really into makeup. A little mascara, some powder, bronzer and lip gloss…that’s usually all that goes on this face. It’s not that I don’t need makeup, oh believe me, I do, I just don’t like looking “made up” all of the time. I would rather look natural, and then when a big night comes along, I can get all prettied up and then people think, “Wow, you clean up good!”. That’s my philosophy.

My favorite thing this week is my

Guerlain Terracotta Poudre Bronzante.


Sounds fancy, doesn’t it? Well, it kinda is. It’s pricy for a little .35 oz container of bronzer. About $50 for the stuff. Crazy. It’s expensive, but it lasts like 6 years, or even longer. So in the scheme of things, you rarely have to replace it. Just make sure you clean your makeup brush often and it lasts even longer.
But let me tell you, I have been wearing the stuff since I was old enough to wear makeup. My Mom would buy it and then of course, I would wear hers. Then as soon as I was responsible enough, she bought me my own. I proudly stored it in my purple Caboodle.

    The more I read your blog the more I realize we are kindred spirits. My make up philosophy is exactly the same. Makes life so much simpler!

    I’ve never tried this before but I may give it a try. Hello , nice to meet you.

    I am exactly the same way!! I like my makeup minimum and cheap but every once in a while, just like you, I find a product that I love, don’t know how I lived without and am willing to shell out my hardest working dollars for because I know it’ll always do the job. For me, that’s Two Faced Shadow Insurance. It’s AMAZING. A tiny bit of this eye shadow primer not only keeps your shadow on all day and through the evening (REALLY), I have woken up the next morning with it still looking perfect!

    I’m glad to have another “Must Have” product to add to my list, thanks for the tip!!

    I don’t wear much make up at all. Carmex and a lip gloss is all that I need. Less is more in the world of makeup.
