Friday Beauty Links: CoverGirl XL Nail Gel, Lancôme Grandiose Mascara, and more

Posted Jul 11 2014 7:57pm

Is it just me, or has this week sped by?

CoverGirl XL Nail Gel review

I did my nails on Monday with this new CoverGirl XL Nail Gel from the #instaGLAM collection and they’ve lasted 5 full days, as you can see here with my manicure in Overblown Orange. No top coat or base coat necessary, and they have a plump, glossy appearance that really does replicate the appearance of a gel manicure. For only $8 at the drugstore, you can color me very impressed.

[Psst: Sneaky bit of product placement for my book Confessions of a Beauty Addict , eh? If you're looking for a fun, breezy beach read with a little romance thrown in, it's currently on sale at Amazon both in paperback and on Kindle, along with my first book Beauty Confidential . I'll have more book news for you very soon!]

Lancome Grandoise Mascara

InStyle makes a bold promise , claiming that the new Lancôme Grandiose wand will “change the way you apply mascara.” Them’s fighting words. I’m getting a sample next week, so I’ll let you know if it lives up to the hype.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette


Facial illuminators are one of my secret beauty weapons: swipe on some highlighting powder or concealer, and you’ll instantly look more awake, well-rested, and simply prettier. BellaSugar has a comprehensive list of the best illuminators and highlighters here , including the awesome Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Palette (above). My only gripe is that bareMinerals All Over Face Color in Clear Radiance isn’t on the list. That stuff is like magic in a jar!

Daily Makeover Facial Massage

Daily Makeover reports on the one thing you’re probably not doing–but should be–for perfect skin . The piece name-checks Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser , which I haven’t used in well over a year, but was in love with at one point in time. It’s one of those fun-to-use beauty products that also produces results. Might have to re-add it to my current beauty arsenal!
