5 beauty products I would buy again {part 2}!

Read Part 1 of this series.

5 beauty products that I can't get enough of -
and highly recommend!
5 to try! {part 2}
{1} Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes! {$19.00} People always ask me if I'm wearing lash inserts or false lashes when I use this mascara. Truth? The magic is all in this tube. 2 swipes and you have a faux lash look all day long.

{2} SEPHORA X Shine Top Coat {$9.50} I bought this on a whim to hit the free shipping amount, and it wound up becoming one of my mani musts. The shine factor is definitely something to write home about - and the staying power isn't too shabby either {I can typically go 5-7 days without a chip when I use this top coat}.

{3} SEPHORA COLLECTION Crystal Nail File in Pink {also available in Purple} {$10.00} Crystal Nail Files can last a lifetime, and are more gentle on nails than typical emery boards. This is the first one I have ever owned, and I wouldn't think about trying another. I have been using it for more than one year and it still looks brand new - and does an incredible job of keeping nails in check.

{4} Milani Baked Powder Blush in Luminoso 05 {$7.49} This is an inexpensive dupe of NARS Blush in Orgasm and literally the only blush you will ever need {it works for any occasion}. Just be sure to use sparingly - a little goes a long way!

{5} NYX Glam Lipgloss Aqua Luxe in VIP {$5.99} My obsession! I actually have back-up tubes of this. You can layer it over lipstick for a 3D effect; but I prefer to wear it alone as a gloss - which is a peachy/golden beige with glitter. It sounds showy, but it is a perfect neutral - especially when the sunlight hits the sparkles. Plus, it's very long-lasting compared to other glosses I've tried - application is usually once every few hours. I seriously cannot rave enough about this!

Wow, I don't own any of these products, but I would definitely consider the NYX Glam gloss. It looks pretty fab; I love lipgloss; and I've become a big fan of NYX.

I am exhausted, but had to stop by. I MUST buy a good crystal nail file. STAT. I got a neat one from Birchbox Box, but its "EH".
I like my nails short. Sadly, they start to peel when they grow any kind of length. I know a few good products & TLC will stop it, but I am too lazy. Sad but true my friend.
I LOVE my Nars Orgasm highlighter! Its PERFECT for those "I didnt sleep enough and am almost too tired to care" days.
Another post of beauty perfection..
Ill be be back manana to thouroughly stalk.

Luminoso is one of my favorite blushes of all time. I love it SO much and always love the way it looks when I wear it. I find it a lot peachier than Orgasm, which I love, cause orangey/peachy/apricot blushes are my favorite. Others in that color family I love: Mac's Melba, NYX's Cinnamon, and the new Maybelline Hi-light blush in Coral!
