Sorry for the lack of posts recently. I've been busy gearing up for my classes next semester. My gift guide will continue tomorrow, but until then here are my two new favorite (super-cheap) drugstore finds:
1.) Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast: This balm is super-moisturizing, and it leaves your lips with a nice healthy sheen. It reminds me of the summer, because it tastes exactly like the fresh raspberry lemonade that I buy from the Fruit Exchange in Chelsea Market. Plus, it contains vitamins C and E as well as SPF 15.
2.) Brucci Nail Hardener in Bert's Blue: This is the most amazing nail color. It's so perfect that it even rivals the Rescue Beauty Lounge colors. It is best described as a sheer silvery pale blue with an iridescent quality (click here for a picture: It's a little more silver in real life though). Everyone has been commenting on how lovely my nails look. I applied two coats to achieve maximum staying power. I bought my bottle at the Rite Aid on 22nd and 9th Ave, but I assume that most other Rite Aid's carry it as well. On Thursday I will be posting about stocking stuffers for kids and teens, so stay tuned!
