Fall Beauty Bag.

Let’s take a minute and talk about bangs. I love mine. They frame my face just so and make one of my better features, my eyes, pop more than usual. I also hate them. More specifically what they do to my forehead – I’m talking about the dreaded breakout.

After a few months of frustration I had a decision to make: either the bangs go or my routine changes. Like I said, I love my bangs. So last weekend I headed to the dreaded mall with a mission and left armed with Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (no oil!) and their Acne Solutions foundation (also oil-free). And then just to make myself feel better (and not like a 14 year old girl) I popped over to Estee Lauder and picked up this Classic Red lipstick for fall.

After a few days of use I’m noticing a nice difference. Less oil. Better coverage. All I could have asked. Maybe I just should have listened to my stylist when he told me to buy this moisturizer two months ago… when I got bangs.

    Clinique has really amped up their game, haven't they? I use their eye cream and it is awesome and under $30 – another mad bonus. Also, Mario Bedescu Drying Lotion is the most amazing pink potion zit zapper out there!

    I adore the Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel — and the lotion form in the winter. And lipstick sure goes a long way to make a woman feel pretty!

    That does look like good stuff- the gel lotion. I like Clinique, always have- for certain basics. Btw, another good secret, is to use toilet seat covers as facial blotters, they control oil perfectly, weird but true!
