Oh, for sure, and I love when it happens. I never thought anything could steal my heart away from the Shu Uemura Lash Curler, but Sonia Kashuk’s excellent Curl Up Eyelash Curler ($12.99) came pretty darn close.
Then there’s the $29 MAC 224 Tapered Blending Brush. After feeling just so-so about it for years as an eyeshadow brush, I used it to apply my under-eye concealer one day and was totally blown away. Now it’s my favorite brush to use with my current favorite concealer, MAC Pro Longwear.
And earlier this month, Urban Decay’s Stardust Sparkling Lip Glosses ($19 each) threw me for a loop. With so much glitter, I was sure they’d feel gritty, but they turned out to be downright comfy on my lips. Plus, they last a lot longer than I expected from a gloss.
How about you? Are there any makeup or beauty products you were surprised to like?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. We’re almost to the Friday finish line, YAY! Hope you had a good one today. Doing anything fun tonight? Right now I’m watching the Terra Nova pilot on TV, and so far, so good. Always helps to have dinosaurs…
