The Lazy Sunday Slap

Sundays are for two things: rocking your pajamas until wayyyy past noon and a massive breakfast. Whether you're a 'play the plans by ear' kind of gal or roll out of bed more hungry that bridezilla, chances are that you're going to need a quick slap of products to look perky and fresh in no time.

Tip one--search for multitasking products, i.e. Origins Vitazing Moisturizer. It's not my first pick of choice for a ridiculously effective dose, but, on lazy days or times when you've hit the snooze button a few to many times, it comes in handy. Think an 'I've been sunbathing in the Amalfi Coast' glow--not orange, not too brown, and a good amount of healthy sheen. For concealer, I clicked on the L'oreal Lumi Magique Concealer to minimize bags (because you know I have them...) and to sheer out redness without a too done-up look.

Now that your complexion is sorted, it's time for the make-a-difference trio. *Enter brows, lips, and lashes* Since I've got a more than bushy set of arches framing my face, they take a bit of sorting out. The Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil has become one of my daily must have products. Natural looking? Check. Wicked staying power, a swift application, and a not-too-soft formula? Check, check, check. Because my face never looks complete without a swipe few coats of mascara, Maybelline Full 'N Soft Waterproof is next on my list. Just like the brow counterpart, it enhances your natural lengths, but with a hint more volume and oomph, but continues to initiate a 'you're eyelashes are so naturally long' comment. Score! Assuming that I have yet to devour a plateful of pancakes and a whole carafe of coffee (yup, all by myself), I'd rather wait until a f t e r the feast to brush mes dents. It may just be me, but toothpaste make my lips dryer than the Sahara Desert and if there's no brush and minty concoction involved, then there's no lip balm either. But I can still look pretty. Since a massive dose of nourishment is yet to be needed, a slick of the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Rose Shimmer is all that's done.

Now, I can reasonable mutter a 'ready in five' statement without breaking the promise. Ughh--but I r e a l l y want some pancakes. Or do I choose waffles? Happy Sunday....


  1. When I went to America a few years ago I lived on waffles, definitely go for them over pancakes ;) You've picked some great stuff here, I hate/love reading your posts because you influence me to buy so many products! I've just added Vitazing and a Lip Perfector onto my list...


  2. I've been considering the vitazing for a while now xx

  3. Not heard of the Maybelline mascara before - I swear their range is endless! It sounds lovely though x

  4. I still need the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector. They come in such gorgeous shades!

  5. I've always been scared to buy vita zing because so many people say it doesn't suit pale skinned people, but I'm glad to hear that you like it.
    I think that they don't sell that mascara in Ireland. Hope they bring it over here because it sounds amazing.

  6. Ahh I love Sundays :) I need to try out that L'Oreal Concealer!

    I'm a new follower of your blog, I love it!
