Guest Post: Mandy {Beauty Products}

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to be taking over Paige's blog today while she's busy cheering on Curtis and Gunner!! 

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Mandy and I blog over at Mommy Musings

I'm a Jersey girl teacher turned SAHM.  I'm lucky to be married to my best friend, Skip, and we are blessed with two sweet little girls.  My husband is a former Marine and for the past almost ten years, a cop.  I am a former-teacher turned SAHM, and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.

Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite  beauty products with you.  I'm not expert, that's for sure, but just a girl who feels like she's tried a lot things out there. 

Victoria Secret So Sexy Nourish shampoo and conditioner.  This is one of the few things I splurge on for myself.  Not only does it make my hair super soft, it smells absolutely amazing.

Eucerin body lotion.  I get such dry skin, especially during the winter, and this is my most favorite lotion.  It really heals my dry skin, and isn't too thick.

I have never actually bought Clinique eye shadow for myself, but I've gotta a few trial sizes and left overs from my mom recently.  I do have plenty of super cheap eye shadows, but when I want something that lasts all day/night {literally} I always turn to Clinique.  The above colors are the exact ones I use and they are just perfect for my eye color.

I have probably tried every single foundation they stock at CVS.  I have never been able to find just the right one, and I refuse to pay lots of money for one.  Then I stumbled upon CoverGirl Trublend and I swear my world changed.  It has great coverage, lasts a long time, and gives my skin the perfect dewy look.

Maybelline Lash Stiletto is my most favorite mascara in the world.  The waterproof one is the one I use every single day.  It literally lasts forever!

I read about Milani blush all over Pinterest recently, as a dupe to NARS, so I had to give it a shot.  At around $8 it is really a great price for the coverage.  I've tried two colors and both have been long lasting and super pigmented.

So what are your favorite beauty products?

I have never tried any of that. I didn't even know the VS made shampoo and conditioner. I bet it is yummy. I like their perfume.

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
