How To Beat The Bed Rest Blues: Makeup Part 2

I'm no longer on bed rest, but you still want to know what kept me looking pretty right? Right!

6. Revolution Organics All Over Body Balm ($28 USD): I've raved about this product before and I'll rave about it again (you can read my review here)! This eco-chic all-purpose body balm really came in handy when I was in the hospital. I didn't want to pack too much so this worked as my belly stick, lip balm, and hand cream!

7. Revolution Organics Freedom Glow Beauty Balm ($34 USD): You want the perfect glow? I love these coloured beauty balms for the eyes, lips and cheeks. Yes, I've featured these a few times before and I love them so much I packed all 3 (click here for past reviews). Since I was missing out on some major sun, Bronzed gave me that faux tan my skin needed. I loved using it on my eyes and to contour my cheeks (you know gotta give the illusion of slim cheeks when your pregos!). Sunkissed  (coral peach), is so hot for summer right now. I used this one most often. It'll leave your skin looking - well - sunkissed! I loved Blushed (bright pink) on my lips and looked gorgeous with Bronzed on the lids and cheeks.

8. NARS Mayflower Lipstick (LE, Summer 2011, $24 USD): When I first saw this lipstick in the tube, I didn't fall in love right away. But after first swipe, I was hooked. It's described as sheer raspberry, but on me it pulled warmer tones of coral and raspberry-pink. It's the summer version of your lips-but-better, well on me at least! I also adore how moisturizing the texture is. I can usually just swipe this on with minimal makeup and it still perks up my complexion. 

9. Lancome Juicy Tubes Awakening of Love (LE, $22 CAD): This review is a little late. I had meant to feature this in time for Toronto's Luminato Festival, but didn't get around to it for good reason. Lora Spiga, Lancome's Official Makeup Artist for Canada, created 3 Juicy Tubes shades and Desert Rose Blush to compliment designer, Denis Gagnon's, Garden of Roses: Denis Gagnon Interprets Alice that was featured during Luminato. 

I received Peace & Flowers, a gorgeous shimmering warm pink. The shade is sheer, but it adds subtle colour with a whole lotta shine! For some simple shine and a bit of colour, I wore it on its own. When I wanted more colour, I loved pairing it with NARS' Mayflower and my Revolution Organics Beauty Balms. This Juicy Tube collection (3 shades in total) will be apart of Lancome's Bronze Azure summer 2011 collection.

Have you tried any of these products? Love 'em? Hate 'em? Want 'em?

Products were sent for editorial consideration and I truly love them.
