Game Changers: More products I love

I will freely admit that I am lazy when it comes to beauty products.  I lack the curiosity that comes with being a product junkie, and would almost always rather buy clothes than something for my hair or skin.  However, every once in a while I come across something that I can't believe I lived without for so long.  I recently added a couple of items to that list, and think you should all go out and try:

Cargo Wet/Dry Foundation
This stuff is amazing.  It offers great coverage when you brush it on (with an old blush brush, if you're like me) but offers even more coverage if you use a damp sponge.  There's something about the powder that doesn't allow it to absorb water and it dries super light and smooth.  I will happily pay $32 every quarter for this, and that says a lot.  Plus, it comes in a super light shade that matches my fantastically pale skin.  (Makeup artists say things like "I don't think this line comes in a shade that fair" to me)
Suave Dry Shampoo
I've always been skeptical of people who rave about spraying a fine powder into their hair and it looking clean afterwards.  However, I had a free coupon for a can of this concoction from Suave and I recently tried it on my second day bangs and hairline and it was AWESOME.  My hair instantly looked better, especially after I ran a brush through it to blend the powder.  Plus, it smells awesome and it only $2.87.

Do you have any products that you can't live without?  Share them in the comments so we can all try them out!


  1. I love Laura Merier Eye Basics. It is the only thing that hides my dark circles without caking up. I use it on my lids too for a nice light color base.

  2. Lancome foaming face wash, bobbi brown cheek and lip color in Pale Pink, and ANYTHING by fresh...

    Lilac and Grey

  3. I love dry shampoo! I have tried so many kinds to find a good one, I can't wait to try this one!

  4. i'm all about the dry shampoo!! also, i use aquaphor on my lips constantly.

  5. Haley! You have read my mind! I've been considering a foundation compact AND a dry shampoo lately! I kind of made a resolution this year to be better about all things beauty related. I can be lazy about stuff like that too. I'd rather have a cute outfit, which is essentially seperate from me, than fuss over my physical appearance. I need to be braver! Thanks for these reviews. :)

  6. I love mac fix [which is super similar to your wet/dry foundation] and I LOVE rose salve lip gloss/balm... throw in an eyelash curler and mascara and I'm set!

  7. i know it's super cheap and old school, but i swear by LA LOOKS gels. it's only like $3 but works miracles.

  8. WHAT! I'm going to get it NOW! Where can I pick it up? Target? Rite Aide!

  9. I'm in the same boat as Leslie... Perfect timing here. I've been considering using both, so thank you for these reviews.

    My current favorite product is one I posted about today... Clinique's self tanner. And I've discovered Boot's facial products (at Target) and love them.

    I can get totally lazy about this stuff too, and take for granted that I got blessed with "good skin." But at 35, I NEED to not be lazy anymore!! ;)

  10. Dry shampoo is something that I have been desperate to try…but which one to choose! The Suave one sounds like it works wonderfully and, it is in my price range…score!

    Love your sweet blog!
