Beauty Pick #1

Brand: ChapStick

Item: Fresh Effects Lip Balm

Flavor: Invigorating Green Tea Mint

Price: $2.99

Where to find: www.chapstick.com and other mass food, drug and merchandise retail stores

Review: I’ve been using ChapStick brand lip balm since I was a kid, and I can always rely on them to keep my lips smooth. This latest edition, Fresh Effects, is the best I’ve tried yet. It’s available in 2 flavors, Invigorating Green Tea Mint and Refreshing Mandarin. I like the Invigorating Green Tea Mint flavor because it gives my lips a cooling, tingling sensation when I apply it. The best part about this line is that it contains 13 moisturizing ingredients and it glides on easy. I always make sure to swipe this on my lips in the morning before I bare that cold winter air. I’ll definitely always make sure to keep a stick of this in my purse and my make up bag year round.

Beauty Pick #2

Brand: Seche

Item: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Color: Clear

Price: $9.95

Where to find: Duane Reade, Nail Salons, and other beauty supply stores

Review: This top coat dries super fast and is a must have for those who specialize in D.I.Y. at home manicures. It is reviewed as one of the finest top coats on the market and is used at nail salons globally. When you’re constantly working and on the go, you don’t have time to sit and wait for your nails to dry. I use one thick coat, and it lasts a full week with no chipping. It doesn’t drag the color of your nail polish either, which is a major plus.

Beauty Pick #3

Brand: Rimmel London

Item: Sexy Curves Mascara

Color: Black

Price: $7.49

Where to find: Duane Reade, Target and other local drug stores

Review: This mascara gives your eyelashes mega volume and curl. It has one of the newer rubber tipped applicators that actually has curves. I apply it over and under my top lashes. People always think I’m wearing fake lashes when I’m out, so it definitely plumps as promised. It comes in a metallic purple packaging that will give your make up bag a punch!
