Hello , Mes Amies. Happy Friday and welcome to a new month. Hopefully this end will us all being in a much better place than how we are it's starting.

Being at home has inspired me to test out a whole bunch of makeup at products that I otherwise would not have.
Part this was born from the mindset of "no time like the present." and part of it was the mindset "Why am I going to waste my good stuff now?"

I've had some really  pleasant surprises through this little experiment.

First and foremost is Coconut Curls Mousse by OGX

If you have textured hair, I cannot recommend this highly enough! It controls frizz while giving hair so much bounce and shine. Bonus points for how fantastic it smells.   

Next up, Maybelline's Fiber Lash Extension Mascara

When all of this is over, this product will still be in my arsenal. A few years back, fiber mascara was code for "particles all over your face". That is NOT the case any longer, at least its not with this mascara. This gives you noticeable extra length for less than $10!

This blush is one that I'm shocked is a drug store product. Maybelline's Cheek Heat

Sheer, yet build-able. There is no "makeup" look, just a flush in your cheeks. It reminds me very much of Benefit's Benetint. Its $12.00 less though!!!

You'd think with all of this extra home time, we'd all be looking more well rested.  Suffice to say, it seems as if the exact opposite is true. Whether it be because we are staying up too late, or because we are all feeling the stress, many of us ( by many of us, I mean me) have extra dark under eye circles as an accessory lately.

Covergirl's Trublend Concealer is a dream!

This covers those nasty circles in full. Yet, it does not crease or make those fine under-eye lines more noticeable. Going forward, I'll be purchasing this instead of Shape Tape.

I've talked about before (And you can see in my photos) that I have very thin lips.  Because of this, I never go for a bold lip. I'd rather do up  my eyes and keep my lips more natural.       

Color Pop's Just A Tint is PERFECT for this.

$5.00! Seriously, a bargain. There is a a whole slew of colors available, something for every complexion.  They stay on perfectly and maintain their color. 

Ahh, well there you have it. Have you used this time to try any new makeup products or techniques? 
Let me know!
