Cosmetic Case of the Mondays

I hope everyone had an amazing 4th of July weekend!  Jared and I had such a fabulous time in Turks & Caicos and were so sad to leave!  Here are some cosmetics that I was so happy I had with me for the vacay, as well as products I wish I had.

Glad I Packed

bright lips

Bright Lips: Since I attempted to sport less makeup than usual while away, I always love sporting a bright lip to transform a simple look into a more fun, less plain jane look.  I was so happy that I had recently purchased MAC Impassioned Lipstick, as well as MAC Flashmode Lustreglass lip gloss.  Great combo!


Face SPF: While being preggers I feel more of an urgency to protect my skin from the sun so before we left I wanted to make sure I picked up a good sunscreen for my face that wouldn’t clog my pores or make me break out (as well as break the bank).  Well I can safely say I loved the Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid-Lotion Sunblock (available in SPF 30 and 55 fyi) and was so happy that it didn’t feel heavy on my skin and kept me safe from the sun’s rays!

Wish I Had Packed

BB & Tinted Moisturizer

BB Cream/Tinted Moisturizer: When getting ready to head down to the beach, I always battle between not wanting to put makeup on and having my face commando, risking everyone to run away in fright (especially this trip since I knew I was already probably scaring people away with my larger than life belly button).  Like an idiot, I forgot to bring any BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer (thanks to preggo brain).  I would have loved to have tried MAC’s new Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm SPF 35 or Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 – Illuminating.  Coulda, woulda, shoulda.  Next time.

top coat

Top Coat: I made sure to get my nails and toesies done before our trip (Essie Moonstruck on my nails and Essie Turquoise and Caicos on my toes…how could I not?!), but because of all of the sand my toes lost all of their shine after the first day at the beach.  I always bring the polish that’s on my nails in case of major chips, but I didn’t bring any of my fav top coats (nails inc. Kensington Caviar Top Coat and Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti Chip Top Coat) with me which would have been nice to touch up.  C’est la vie.

Cheers to a great week!
