What I'm loving: Beauty Edition from the anti-makeup girl

I was recently tagged byTWO lovely ladies, Married with a Pup and Lacey over at Bugs & Kisses to list 10 things I love.  Well oddly enough I had just finished this post....and wouldn't you know it had TEN things on it.  Coincidence?  I think not!  So here you have it...10 fabulous beauty items from the queen of no makeup herself!

Sephora Tinted Moisturizer:
I don't wear makeup on a daily basis but sometimes I like something to even out my skin.  I tend to be pretty sensitive and get a little red and blotchy, this does the trick without leaving me feeling overdone.

Aveeno Face Wash & Moisturizer:
Ultra Calming
Like I said above, my skin is UBER sensitive.  This stuff is great at keeping the redness down.  I never get that tight skinned feeling after I wash my face anymore.  The moisturizer is very lightweight....not greasy like some of the ones with SPF can be.  I'll even use it under my Sephora tinted if I feel I need a little something extra.

Nivea Lip Balm:
A kiss of moisture
What girls bag is complete without a good chapstick?  This one is fabulous!

Bare Escentuals Buxom Lip Gloss:
Don't be fooled by the red shade in the tube.  It goes on pretty sheer, but is just enough color for me.

Bare Escentuals EyeShadow:
It's basically a white highlighter so for the non-makeup wearer it's perfect.  Brightens the eye and it's pretty fool proof to put on.  No racoon eyes here!

Nars Blush:
I was looking for an alternative to my usual color, Orgasm.  This is a nice pinky purple and works well for day or night.

Summer Grace
I've been a strictly Philosophy "Falling in Love" girl since right before the hubs and I started dating.  I've tested a few of their other scents, but most of the Grace's fell short.  This one however is light, a little floral, a little fresh and perfect for summer.

Dove Body Wash:
Gentle Exfoliating
It has little exfoliating beads in it which are great at keeping your skin soft.  It's also a pretty neutral scent so the hubs will use it too.

Cover Girl Mascara:
Lash Blast Length
Love the brush.  It separates the lashes but isn't goopy or clumpy.  Plus you can't really beat the drugstore price tag

What are your favorite beauty items these days??
Oh and for the record.  No one paid me to write this....I just love sharing what I love with all of you!

Great post - great products. I am totally going to have to check out Summer Grace. I used to be obsessed with Amazing Grace and then I got pregnant with my first son and for some reason the smell made me sick. I had to give away all of my Amazing Grace product to my sister and she's still not allowed to wear it around me because it still makes me gag. I do like Falling in Love too, but you're the second person I've heard mention Summer Grace so I may just have to give it a shot.

I love that Nivea chapstick and Dove! The others I haven't tried. I do have Bare Minerals eyeshadows just not that color. :)

Loved reading this! I'm always on the hunt for the latest and greatest beauty products. I tend to have redness, especially in the winter. I need to try the Aveeno moisturizer. The one I use (DDF) is great, but it's pricey.

I also love Buxom Lipgloss and Bare Escentuals EyeShadow. The shadow gives such a nice, natural wash of color that I love. The Nivea lip balm is also a favorite.

Great post! I MUST check some of these products out. What female doesn't like buying makeup, facial products?! I need to try that facewash, right now I'm using bar soap which is about the only thing that works for me, ugh!
