Tuesday Tip: Be a Skinny Girl

As in Skinnygirl Cosmetics by Bethenny Frankel! You may know Bethenny from The Real Houswives of New York City, Bethenny Getting Married? or Bethenny Ever After. Or you may know her better because of her Skinnygirl Margarita. Bethenny is an accomplished business woman who has decided to venture into the world of cosmetics and I'm loving her being in it!

Skinnygirl Cosmetics are sold exclusively at Walmart, which means they are definitely affordable. I was drawn into the line by the cute packaging and of course her name (what can I say, I'm a huge Real Housewives fan). While the packaging is great I was more concerned about the actual product...and after trying a few different items I'm hooked and debating which product I will try next. The good news is that since they are priced so low it will be easy to try new products. Here are a few of my favs (so far...)

Plumping Lip Gloss (in peach)- We've all tried plumping lip glosses...some work, some don't....some make your lips so numb you can't feel them. Not the case here, the gloss makes your lips tingle a little, but nothing major. The gloss has a sheen to it, so the sheen mixed with the plumping action gives your lips a great pouty look...you'll be ready to walk the runway in a fashion show or in your everyday life!

Cleansing Facial Cloths- these face wipes are a-maz-ing...perfect for travel, keeping in your gym bag, or using instead of face wash on those nights when you are oh so tired and don't feel like going through the exhausting steps of actually washing your face. They have a faint cucumber scent which makes me feel like I'm stepping into a spa!

Face Solutions Kit- This fun kit includes a Detox Face Mask, Vitamin C Face Scrub and an Energizing Lip Gloss. I appreciated that both the mask and scrub left my face feeling refreshed and moisturized. So often with masks or scrubs you feel like your face has been robbed of all moisture. The lip gloss was a fun touch, I don't know how "energized" I felt, but it was a good clear gloss that wasn't too sticky and you can always use more than one of those, right?!

Tinted Moisturizer- This moisturizer really impressed me because it has a brush on the end, which helps with blending. For some reason I HATE using my fingers when applying foundation on myself, it weirds me out, so having the brush there was great. The moisturizer had enough coverage in it that it blended/evened out my skin tone...this is the perfect product if you want a little something on your face when you go for a run or to the gym, or if you don't wear a lot of makeup it will serve as a good base. It comes in different shades and has SPF, which you know is a must.

You can order these products online or get them at Walmart, from what I saw online prices range from about $5-$15 which means they are absolutely worth a try!
