I’ve been absolutely loving how this Maybelline Dream Sun bronzing illuminator has been making my skin look under my foundation!  I found it in stores last summer and totally forgot I had it.  If you can find this make sure to buy it!  You’ll love it and won’t be disappointed. (Just a heads up, I have medium/tan skin tone so I’m not positive how it will look on paler skin)

theBalm on HauteLook!

One of my favorite brands is back on HauteLook until Monday at 8am with some new products and most of the usual suspects.  My favorite products include Mary-Lou Manizer, the Nude-Tude Palette, Meet Matt(e) Nude, and the Bahama Mama Bronzer.  Shop the sale HERE if you want some amazing products that are on sale!

About theBalm - Marissa Shipman technically founded theBalm Cosmetics in 2004 but it really began a few years earlier when she bought 11 books on “how to make makeup” and began mixing in her kitchen. Today, the products are no longer made anywhere near her kitchen and you won’t find their “recipes” in any book. theBalm boasts a full line of amazing color cosmetics along with a complete set of skincare and 33 nail polishes. The brand is known for its high quality, multipurpose products that are branded with clever, woman-empowering slogans in retro-inspired packaging. All products are cruelty free and made in the USA.
