    I love your selections and your website! It would also be great to see a round-up of products that have high ratings from the Environmental Working Group website (or the like) i.e don’t contain toxins… phalates/endocrine disruptors, lead and all the rest. You have one product by Josie Maran that falls under the no toxins category, but would love to see more – what you would choose with your discerning eye.

  2. Ditto to Elizabeth, especially with facial lotions!

  3. Have you tried the Urban Decay crayon? I wonder how it compares to the Josie Maran. I use the Urban Decay crayon on my under-eyes and I think it works like a charm. I’ll have to look for the Josie Maran the next time I’m at Sephora! I’m always on the hunt for a good concealer;)

    • I haven’t! Will check out…

      • Just happened to be at Sephora last night and finally found the Josie Maran section (that store is giant!). I’m definitely going to try her crayon when my Urban Decay crayon runs out. I liked how creamy it seemed, but not messy, which is why I love the crayon applicators! I need to check out the NARS you mentioned too, as I’ve only tried their stick concealer (too dry) but not the liquid one. We seem to wear the same color foundation, so I’m definitely on board to try it! Thanks for the tips:)

  4. What is the lipcolor you’re wearing in this video? I love it!

  5. Love the Gimmebrow! Your blouse is adorable too – would you mind sharing where you bought it?

  6. My six year old watched that with me and she wanted to know what color is on your lips. And I do too.

  7. Love this! We have similar hair/skin tone, so I always like hearing which products you’re into. I was wondering if you had any updated recommendations for hair styling products (particularly for blow-outs/heat styling)? I’ve always had really good luck with your recommendations before but am looking to change it up a bit.

  8. I didn’t notice any foundation product on your list. Do you use one that you would recommend? I like the bob cream from Too Faced but I’m almost out.

  9. Do you have any feedback on the brush?

    I’m looking for an affordable boar bristle brush – do you have any recommendations?
