Beauty product day!

Every have one of those days where you just get obsessed with buying beauty products and can’t stop? That day was today.

Duane Reade: I picked up my latest nail polish crush “Ballet Slipper” from Essie. I selected this color for my manicure last week, and now I must have some at home for all times. It is the perfect summer shade. Light, airy and easy going!

Bergdorf Goodman: It was time to stock up on my Laura Mercier Tinter Moisturizer, aka The One Makeup Product I Can’t Live Without. Normally I get Porcelain, but this lady gave me Nude. Not sure if I should return it for my normal color, or give Nude a shot.

Sephora: I’ve been wanting to give bronzer try for a while. Since I have fair skin and stay out of the sun my skin never ever has a “sun kissed glow”…so I might as well fake it. I picked up a CARGO bronzer that is nice and shimmery, but not over the top so I can avoid the dreaded Dina Lohan Orange Face. I also picked up a new Bronzer brush.

The Body Shop: A favorite of my teenage years, I’ve rediscovered the Body Shop in the past year or so. I’m hooked on all the fruity shower gels and buy them in all sorts of scents. Today I ran in to purchase a tube of Seaweed Exfoliant after reading this post & comments over at fashionista.com. Of course now I’m curious about this Cellulite Serum so I may be making a return trip!
