product round-up \ summer 2013.

Today I am going to share with you my used-daily products for each of the major makeup & beauty categories. I am a creature of habit, & once I find a combination of products that I like, I stick with it for a while, even in the midst of trying new things here & there. The goal with these posts is to give you insight into how I achieve my daily look in any given season. So without further ado, let's get on with the first in this series...

Admittedly, not all of these selections are drugstore products. I'm still searching for a perfect eyebrow filler from the drugstore, as well as an eye base that works as well as my Paint Pot. Any suggestions?

If you'd like individual reviews on any of these products, let me know! I plan to review all of them in time, but if any of them stand out as ones you'd like to know more about right now, tell me.

I swear by Rimmel's Stay Matte. It's perfect! Also, I love that Vanilla B&BW spray during Winter. I'll have to try out some of these other products!

it's one of my VERY favorite things in my makeup bag. i use it twice in my routine - once at the very beginning, then once at the end to brighten everything back up. i highly recommend it. and it lasts forever!

you definitely should! they're my favorites.


i'm totally loving my rimmel stay matte - it replaced my MAC mineralize skin finish (& it's so much more affordable!).
