"Magic" Makeup

Those who know me, know my immense hate dislike for anything involving magic.  The word alone makes me scrunch my nose in disgust.  Which is going to make getting through this post a little more difficult, but I think the products are worth it, even if they both contain the word magic.  Here goes....


Having a Sephora across the street from work is both good and bad.  Good because I get to see and test all the new products, bad because I then want to spend all of my paycheck buying these new products.  My self control has been pretty good as of late, but I fear it will be crumbling soon after trying Givenchy's Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip & Cheek Balm .  This stuff gives you the prettiest dewy glow that is specific to your skin tone.  I tried it out and got a nice shade of pink, while my co-worker ended up with a little more a rosy color.  In any case, it gave us both a very pretty cheeky look and has me wanted to buy, buy, buy now.

I then proceeded to try out Tarina Tarantino's Odyssey Magic Hour Cream Shadow in Nebula (a shimmery white) just under my eyebrows as a highlighter and to lighten up my eyeshadow a bit and this stuff glides on so easy and really just made my eyes pop a little bit and look less tired (bonus).  It is the perfect shadow to layer over a smokey eye so you don't end up looking like Taylor Momsen (yikes). 

I suppose somehow, someway, I can get over my extreme hatred dislike of magic, just for these two products....

Wow, it sounds so dangerous to live that close to a Sephora! And by dangerous, I mean amazing. This stuff sounds great, I'll have to give it a whirl. Thanks!
