Show Us Your Life: Beauty Products

Today I am linking up with Kelly's Korner for her Show Us Your Life: Beauty Products.

I'm not a huge product junkie and I'm not very loyal to brands. I buy whatever shampoo and conditioner is on sale and I don't mind if it comes from Walgreens or WalMart. I do not have to have salon hair products although I will sometimes splurge at ULTA if they have their liters on sale.





Aussie's Sprunch Spray may be the only product that I have really stuck with. It is perfect for my naturally curly hair. I should have bought stock in this stuff 15 years ago when I started using it. FYI: this will not make straight hair curly but it works great if you have some natural wave. Plus it smells good too.


I am not a Mary Kay fan. I have tried several times to use their product and the skin stuff just doesn't work for my skin. I do like the yellow concealer for dark under eye circles but I am getting ready to run out and will probably just go with another brand.




I love ULTA. It is the best store. There makeup brand is always inexpensive and usually BOGO. I have several shades of their eye shadows and I just change them out depending on what I'm wearing. I use the same white base shade everyday though.




I just bought Maybelline's Falsie mascara because I had a coupon but so far I am a fan.



I have been using CoverGirl's Dream Matte Mousse for about a year now and I love it. I hate feeling like I have makeup on and this stuff is so light that it doesn't bother me. Plus it covers great.



Beauty Rush lip gloss from Victoria Secret is the BEST! It is thick but not sticky and it comes in a ton of great shades and flavors. I wear the clear everyday but have a pale pink one also.

I love Bath and Body Works. I wear their lotion and body sprays everyday. My current smell is Secret Wonderland but I am a Coco Cabanna or Pearberry girl in the summer.




Hubs bought me this perfume last summer and it has the best smell without being too strong.


And without a doubt my #1 beauty product is the original Chapstick. I cannot live without it. Seriously.

I love Ulta and Sephora. I could literally spend hours there, just wandering around and looking at things.

Do you remember those ads that Aussie used to do each year with their giant family in white robes? I used to LOVE seeing those and watching the family grow as they had more kids.

Sorry for that side note- your comment on Aussie products reminded me of that!

I used to use an Aussie product called Slip- it was like a light detangling conditioner. I had forgotten all about it, but I loved it and wonder if they still make it....

Lo @ Not Your Average Southern Belle said...

I'm an Ulta JUNKIE! Love those little BOGO stands they have near the checkout line :)

Heather said...

I'm currently wearing Secret Wonderland too! It's smells SO good!

I'm the same way! I'm totally a drugstore brand gal. With traveling always visiting family every other weekend it's easier to run to a WalMart or Walgreens than to have to find a mall or specialty store. And I def can't argue with the prices!
