Another Summer weekend gone... Is it just me or do you feel like this summer flew by? I looked at the calendar this morning and couldn't believe there is only one more weekend of August left. Can we please have more summer weekends? Pretty please?

Here's my top Monday picks to cure those end of weekend (and summer) blues!


bareMinerals bareSkin® Complete Coverage Serum Concealer, $20

This new serum concealer from bareMinerals instantly covers the appearance of dark circles, discoloration and other imperfections for an even-toned complexion. Skin appears brighter and smoother - here's to looking rested after a long weekend!

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' best-selling Lip Tar is now available in ready-to-wear! These new lip tars are now housed in tubes that feature a user friendly doe foot applicator. This easy to use packaging makes these liquid lipsticks great for on the go with the same long-wear of the original version. I've got my eyes on Femme, Hush, and Queen. 


My new holy grail eye pencil is definitely Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil. It's combines the technique of a power, pencil, and wax in one product. It's soft and easily fills bald spots by adding dimension to fine brow hairs. It's double-ended design has a unique triangular shape tip, so no stencil is needed. The opposite side of the pencil features a brush for brow grooming. Just fill-in and go. You can now purchase the pencil in 9 shades - there's even an auburn for redheads!


I was a bit nervous when I heard MAKE UP FOR EVER was changing their best-selling HD foundation. I've always been a huge fan of the prior version and heard mixed reviews before testing for myself. I was very pleased with the wear and coverage of this product. I also tested the HD Invisible Cover Stick and actually loved the stick version for on-the-go and for days I had no time for concealer. The verdict? Still a must-have foundation on your beauty vanity.


I had lunch with the Dippity-Do team back in April and I fell completely in love with their products. From the sweet scent to the product packaging, I knew this was a brand I was going to repurchase again and again. The cost doesn't match the actual value of the products (a mere $6.99!) - they feel very luxurious. I received so many complements about my hair and found that I actually washed it less after using Dippity-Do. I highly recommend to any woman with curly hair - you'll love these products!
