Badger Natural Lip Tint & Shimmer Review

Badger Lip Tint and Shimmer Review

Weekly Cheap Secret:

Badger Lip Tint & Shimmer is a natural lip product with lots of organic fair trade cocoa butter. Each tube features two lip colors. All of the shades have a natural Opal Shimmer Lip Balm. The other end of the tube has a natural lip tint. I love tinted lip balms because they are so easy. I also have dry lips that require lots of TLC. I am a major fan of Badger

More of the 1960’s: Get the Look of Barbara Anderson

Barbara Anderson

I love 60’s cop/spy dramas. Ironside isn’t my favorite but I do love the take on 60’s San Francisco. I also love fellow Tennessean, Barbara Anderson, AKA Officer Eve Whitfield.

More of the 1940’s: Get The Look of June Allyson

Get The Look Of Lady Jane Grey

FACE: The face is flawless. Apply concealer where needed. Fresh Umbrian Clay Absolute Concealer is nice for blemishes. Apply an “all purpose” foundation like L’Oreal True Match Liquid

Basic Everyday Mascara: Estee Lauder More Than Mascara Review

I am always searching for that HG mascara. I feel like I’ve tried so much. The thing is I don’t know what I really want. I think I want the dramatic look of false lashes, but the truth is if I want that then I should wear false eyelashes. Thy’re cheaper than trying tons of mascaras. Lately, I have been using Estee Lauder More Than Mascara in More Black. It is a pretty nice formula for everyday. It looks natural, nothing like my false lashes. But, I don’t need a false lash look… Continue reading | 1 Comment
