Here’s a quick review of the top three things that I’m obsessing about right now….

First, remember that Sephora 15% off discount for beauty insiders ends on Thursday, April 10, 2014. This is a great time to try new things, or to stock up on staples like hair care, skin products, and tools.


This time around, my “fun” item that went into my cart is this Bite Beauty Deconstructed Rose Lip Gloss set ($49.00 before discount). Although these glosses aren’t full size, there are twelve (12) at a fairly generous 0.05 ounce size. If you want to start seeing the world through rose-colored glosses, here’s your set.

Second, I tried the Wayne Goss concealer trick, and it really works for me. I thought I’d highlight it for you, because my under eye concealer is outlasting some of my foundations these days. That’s a beauty first.

To do this method, I’ve been using UD Anti-Aging Primer Potion ($24), although others will work too (so long as they aren’t too drying).

Third, “the higher the hair….” has been my motto lately. There’s something so fun about building volume, volume, volume.  I’m still addicted to my T3 Voluminous Hot Roller set (don’t knock ’em till you’ve tried ’em), and these are 15% off right now at Sephora through April 10th for insiders. For an even quicker way to add a spritz and a tiny tease, Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray ($21 for small size) does the trick.


This beautifully presented spray is a pleasure to use, and gives me the mane that makes me feel ready to meet my day.

  1. I just love that Bite set, wish I could get it, too.

  2. Love all of your obsessions! I must get that Oribe spray…I’m currently obsessed with the my new YSL #11 Prune Impertinente Baby Doll Kiss and Blush (which I just reviewed), Bobbi Brown Espresso eyeshadow, and Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy in 210 Impulsive. Great post as usual!

  3. Hmm I’m glad the concealer trick works for you, but I have major doubt about it myself. I find that I have to steer my eye primer CLEAR of my undereye area, because if I don’t, my concealer becomes a sticky gooey mess. Maybe I’ve been using the “wrong” eye primers so to speak (NARS is a little better in this regard, but UDPP can really make it quite messy)?

    I do have a sample of Benefit Stay Don’t Stray lying around somewhere, which is designed as an eye primer as well as a concealer primer. I really should dig it out and give it a go one of these days!

  4. That Urban Decay eyeshadow primer looks amazing! Going to have to buy it, then give all this a try. Thanks for the cool post! Keep it up 🙂

  5. Amy, THANK YOU for posting the Wayne youtube link. Not only I learned how to apply unbudged concealer, but also the audiobook offer from Amazon is great!! Thank you, thank you <3
