Wednesday Randomness: A few of my favorite things – beauty products

favorite things

Today’s Wednesday Randomness is about our favorite beauty products. I’m not really picky when it comes to my makeup. I mostly shop at Kroger or CVS when it comes to makeup (something my hairdresser neighbor cries over) and I tend to just grab whatever’s on sale for my hair.

I am never without at least one tube of Maybelline 14 hour Timeless Crimson lipstick. I actually have four tubes, since I have a knack for losing lipstick and this is my trademark color. If I’m not feeling well or just don’t feel like putting makeup on, people at work ask me if I’m not feeling well. It should upset me, but I get so many compliments on how awesome it looks that I’m okay with people wondering where it is when I forget it.

I stick to Revlon Color Stay black eyeliner (NOT brown!) and Full & Soft mascara (it doesn’t clump as much as it doesn’t make my lashes as stiff). I’ve changed mascaras a few times, but I always come back. I’m a creature of habit, apparently.

The only other thing I’m known for is my signature scent – Amazing Grace by Philosophy. One of the speech therapists actually seeks me out just to smell me. Her nickname for me is “Delicious” because I smell delicious. My nickname for her is “Awesome” because she’s one of the best speech therapists I’ve ever seen. Amazing Grace is a soft scent that isn’t overwhelming and I can wear it around even my most sensitive patients, but it smells good enough that I’ve had several people walk by me and ask what I’m wearing. Win/win.

I’m not that much of a girly girl. I wear ivory foundation and powder (whatever’s on sale – as long as it’s ivory. Anything else is too dark), black eyeliner and mascara. Crimson lipstick. Perfume. I put my hair in a ponytail every single day so that a) I don’t overheat while I’m running around doing portable xrays and b) patients can’t yank it out of my head. I’m simple.

    ” I wear ivory foundation and powder (whatever’s on sale – as long as it’s ivory…)” When I did theatre I recall ivory was “My Fair Lady” and thought that was one of the nicest ways to say “pasty white girl.” =)

    I do love that lipstick on you. Also…remind me to smell you when we’re in Austin. *wins awkward sentence award*

    Yay Paige! You’re like me and really don’t have a lot. I appreciate that. It makes me feel better about my tiny product hoard.

    Wow. I’m starting to wonder if I’m the only one who never wears makeup. Never. But then I don’t need it running on the trails. My face tends to be blushed later anyway because, hello, just ran 6 miles. And I workout again later in the afternoon…so recharge on that blush, lol.

    And yes, i will give you a good sniff the next time I see you, lol. I love perfume.

    Your lipstick is the perfect color. I notice it in every picture you post. :)
