EauMG’s September 2015 Favorites

Byredo Boutique
Byredo in NYC

Weekly Cheap Find: Covergirl Cheekers & Instant Cheekbones Blush

Covergirl Cheekers Blush is one of my many stupid addictions. I love this stuff. It is cheap so I can own like every one (they retail for under $5).

I love these because they contain fine particles of shimmer that come across like pixie dust. This formula really makes my skin look dewy and almost like a mannequins. There’s a wide range of colors. Some of my favorite shades include: Classic Pink which is a just worked out flushed pink, Snow Plum which is a light pinky plum shimmer,
