What I'm Loving...

What a week. It's certainly been crazy around here. How about for you? 
Here's what I'm loving:

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer
My love/need/obsession for moisturizing lip products, especially this time of year has been well noted. Here's an entire post where I listed tons of different products. Well, add another one to that list - the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers. They are my favorite kind of winter lip product - they moisturize and have a little bit of color. Perfect. And you can pick them up at the drugstore - even better. AND they taste good! See, plenty of good reasons to get one. Or more than one. (I have Champagne and Caramel.)

L'Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Color Smokes Eye Shadow
This is probably a What I'm Loving... first - 2 products on the list you can get at the drugstore. I'm not anti-drugstore by any means, I'm just very particular about what I use and even more selective about recommending stuff to you guys. With the exception of NYX, lower end eyeshadows usually don't impress me. This line has completely impressed me. They're quads so you get 4 eyeshadows for like $6 or $7 - pretty good. They're numbered with a guide on the back of where to place each color but you can obviously do something different if you feel like it. You can get a whole look out of the quad which, again, impresses me for the price. I have them in Cobalt Smokes and Blackened Smokes. Cobalt Smokes is the more unique of the 2 if that's what you're looking for. I might show a look or 2 with them soon. We'll see. 

Macbook Sleeves
One of the most fun things about the new Macbook is that I "need" something to carry it around it (I really do, it's only smart) and there are SO many to choose from! When brands like Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade are making laptop sleeves, how can you not have fun shopping for one? (I went with Marc by Marc Jacobs. Shocking, I know.)

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals - Paris (Ooh La La)

Cause if I was a man I'd make my move 
If I was a blade I'd shave you smooth 
If I was a judge I'd break the law 
And if I was from Paris, if I was from Paris 
I would say: 
How can you not love this song? So completely catchy!

Ok, so that's What I'm Loving right now! What about you?

I'm with you on the quad shadows!!!! My makeup is a mixed bag of cheap and expensive but I'm always down to spend less on it if I find good stuff, those Loreal and Revlon quads are really good and I think it's great if you're trying to save money. The mac sleeves are so stupidly cute, LOVE them!

I ADORE burt's bees!! I hadn't heard of this particular kind though so I will have to check it out. And I have a purple version (can't remember the name!) of the quad shadows and I love it!! I use it at least 3 times a week.

Justine said...

Yes, you NEED a laptop bag. I mean no one would be happy if you banged up your laptop because you didn't have a sleeve for it. I am glad you bought it. *Nods Head*

Love the Burt's Bee Lip Shimmer, I've used it for awhile! I love that the color actually lasts awhile too!

If I carried my Mac around, I would definitely get a Marc one too. :o)

Thanks for the comment, as always!



jemina said...

I am a sucker for lippie products too, and Burt's Bees has my vote, as for the eye shadow, those quads are beautiful, and who doesn't love a Mac Sleeve by Marc Jacobs, they are tdf!!!!

Wishing you a fabulous Friday and Weekend too Sweetie

Woohoo Marc by Marc Jacobs!!! I don't think they make sleeves big enough for my Macbook though...it's the biggest size one :(

Diana Mieczan said...

I really love burt's bee's :) Have a fantastic weekend, my dear


I so love the Marc Macbook cases...I've been tempted to buy one but I can't justify it because the one I currently have is cute and there's nothing wrong with it. Maybe I need to spill something on it or something so I'll need to replace it :)

Have a great weekend! xoxo
