Move Over Oprah-Here’s My Favorite Things

I’d like to share with you some new products I’ve found and a few of my “tried and true” items that I use daily.

My list isn’t as fabulous as Oprah’s “Favorite Things” list. You won’t pee your pants while jumping up and down. You may faint and spontaneously combust though.

First up…..HOLY Rice Krispie Treats! I spotted this treasure in Walgreens last night. 


This is a 2 pound sheet of Rice Krispie Treat. You can decorate it like a cake or cut it into squares for those last minute school parties you forgot (not that…..*ahem* I’ve ever done that or anything).  I think the measurement is about 15” x 11.5”. 

Think of all the fun things you could do with this and not have to get your hands all buttery and sticky.  Here’s the kicker----they don’t have quite the same taste as the homemade ones.

Next up….L'Oreal Infallible Never Fail Lipliner in Nude.

image This is my favorite lip liner. I don’t use lip liner everyday, but this is always in my makeup bag.

L’Oreal Infallible 6 Hour Never Fail Lipgloss in “Sunset”

Okay ladies, I’ve never gotten 6 hours out of this lipgloss, but it is near perfect in color. I also love the color “Coral Sands”. I have this in every purse, every makeup drawer, and even in some coat pockets. It’s a lovely, muted peach, and I love, love, love how natural and warm this color is.


If your poof needs a little sumpin’ sumpin’ , try Big Sexy Hair Brand “What a Tease- Backcomb in a Bottle”.

This is a fun product to get extra volume. It’s kind of a weird texture, so you don’t want to go all “Jersey Shore” when you start spraying, or you’ll end up with a rats’ nest. image

I buff Makeup For Ever HD High Definition Powder over my mineral foundation.  I like how light this powder is. Don’t let the fact that it’s white skur you. You won’t look like Michael Jackson.


I’ve used this liner for YEARS. If you put this on, and then go over it with an eye shadow powder in the same color, it’ll last all day & night.

Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black Brown


 This is the cheapy face wash I use in the shower. I like the fact that it has benzoyl peroxide, but doesn’t bleach the doo-hicky out of your clothes and bedding like Pro-Active does.

I use this with my Clarisonic brush.

AcneFree Oil Free Purifying Cleanser


Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes is another product that you’ll find all over my house. I have them on my nightstand, in my bathroom, and in my car. I love that I can use these anywhere.


Lastly, I’d like to share another favorite…..Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush in “Rose Petal”.

I follow a tip that Bobbi Brown published in her latest book. She suggests layering cream blush over powder blush. I tried it and really liked the “depth” that her technique gives.

I layer this OVER Nars “Orgasm” Blush or Bare Minerals “Warmth”. 



Just take two fingers and dab/pat a little on the apples of your cheeks. It’s a very fresh look.

So there you have it…… a few of my favorites.

Unleash your inner Oprah.
