This week’s picks all share one thing in common: convenience. In today’s world we’re inundated by a variety of timesuckers, (forms of mass media, traffic, energy vampires, just to name a few), and I find no matter how much I plan ahead, it seems there is simply never enough time. So this week’s beauty picks will help you save real time, so you can allocate it to hopefully, my favorite time; which is playtime, then dinner of course!!

1. Almay Smart Shade Makeup

DESCRIPTION: It kinda scares me how chemists can invent something that does this, but nevertheless, I feel the technology involved is brilliant. How innovative is it to create a foundation that matches itself to you skin tone? “One foundation under God…?

WHY I LIKE IT: This foundation is great for those days when you don’t have time to blend, blend, blend, and works so well that you can put it on without a mirror. It’s perfect for that midday touch-up, or for those days when you need to be somewhere looking presentable, but only have five minutes to work it out.

REVIEW:
Cost: $13.50
Value: Good.
Accessibility: Great!
Where to buy: Drugstores

2. Neutrogena Instant Nail Enhancer

DESCRIPTION: I’m always working with my hands, so my nails can get pretty tore back looking. Ideally, I try to manicure them weekly, but sometimes it doesn’t quite work out that way, so in these instances, I have Neutrogena’s Instant Nail Enhancer to thank.

WHY I LIKE IT: It’s the ultimate quick fix. I like it because it dries extremely fast (like 30 seconds) and gives you a nice, subtle sheen, without having that toxic acetone smell that most nail products have.

REVIEW:
Cost: $7.89
Value: Good.
Accessibility: Great!
Where to buy: Drugstores

3. Fat Girl Slim by Bliss

DESCRIPTION: This cream touts caffeine as its active ingredient, responsible for the toning and firming of the skin, decreasing the overall appearance of cellulite. I believe the results are even more effective if you apply right before working out, and then wear some tight layers around those areas to increase the absorption of the product.

WHY I LIKE IT: Exercise and I are definitely not the best of friends, and I have to admit, my eating habits aren’t the best, though not the worst, but using this cream makes me feel like I lost three pounds, and I don’t know about you all, but I’m very happy feeling this way.

REVIEW:
Cost: $30.00 6oz.
Value: Moderate.
Accessibility: Moderate.
Where to buy: Sephora, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus.

Enjoy and stay posted for more beauty tips and picks to come next week!
