Monday’s Most Wanted- Vol 20


Monday's Most Watned - Vol 20

Summer is fast approaching and I’m ready to stock up on beauty supplies.  Hair, face, skin…I need it all.  I have a big order coming in today from The Body Shop with summer body must haves, so be on the lookout for my haul on Instagram.  But I’m looking at my hair and face and want to follow suit.

It’s a 10 Silk Smoothing Balm – I’m happy with everything I’ve learned about styling my hair over the last couple of months and I am planning to do a few tutorials.  But first I want to test out another It’s a 10 product to see if I can combine a few steps.  I use the Leave In Product, but my bottle is almost empty.  I also use a styling product to hold my hair straight after blowing out (which rarely lasts a full 24 hours) and a heat protectant for…obvious reasons.  If the Silk Smoothing Balm worked as well as all three, it would be a total space and time saver.

NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte – My eyes seem to always be rimmed in allergy red.  But I’m not experiencing allergies and I am getting plenty of sleep.  I can’t sort this one out and I’m tired of waiting so it’s high time to just cover it up.

Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – When you move to Florida, they should just give you a bottle of this stuff at the state border.  It does wonders for not only helping makeup last longer, but also refreshing face products when I’ve been out in the heat.

What’s on your summer prep wish list?

    Have you tried the Nude Rimmel ScandalEyes W/p Kohl Eyeliner? Depending on whether you want to invest in the NARS liner, the Rimmel is a good drugstore alternative.

      I haven’t tried the Rimmel liner. I have heard very good things, but I am focusing more on cruelty free brands ;)

        Thank you for the nudge. :) I’m also trying to be conscious about which brands I support. My beauty bag is about 2/3 cruelty free, and I plan to better that ratio (or at least maintain it).

        Have you considered the NYX Wonder Pencils? NYX has three nude shades. The Rimmel pencil is creamier and softer and needs one pass to show up on the waterline. The NYX pencil requires two or three. Anyway, please keep us posted with with NARS liner.
