You’ll find every beauty must-have on your list at! Sweet-Color-Environmental-Protection-Nail-Polish-Red-12ml_1_650x650It’s confession time… I used to be a beauty queen. And, even though it was years ago, I’m afraid I’ve never outgrown my love of sparkly dresses, rhinestone jewelry and makeup, makeup, makeup!

So, when I discovered I was like the proverbial “kid in a candy store.” carries everything from cell phones to apparel. But, what I love best is the mammoth selection of skin care, nail care and (you guessed it!) makeup! 58 types of mascara, 78 brands of eye liner, 110 different eye shadow palettes… it’s heaven.

One of my favorite finds is Sweet Color Environmental Protection Nail Polish in sassy red. I was unfamiliar with the brand, but am now a believer. Easily applied (with either natural or artificial nails), the color is rich, glossy and fade-resistant. A high-quality precision brush makes nail art simple and there are hundreds of colors! Retail: $4.53

Another pick is what I call a “glam kit.” The package includes 10-color blush palette, 10 pairs of false eyelashes, and an eye liner makeup set!

T-MART.COM 10-Color-Blush-Palette-10-Pairs-Long-False-Eyelashes-Eye-Liner-Makeup-Set-010-_nologo_600x600_originalFirst, the 10-blusher palette is nothing short of amazing. Blush can be incredibly tricky to get right — what looks fabulous on sun-kissed skin in July tends to turn garish by October. With 10 gorgeous shades from which to choose, you can experiment with different colors and looks without spending a fortune.

Next, if you’ve never tried false eyelashes, this is the perfect way to experiment. Learning how to apply them takes a bit of effort, but it is well worth the time! And, once you try them, you’ll be hooked! False eyelashes are wonderful for volumizing thin lashes or for adding drama to a nighttime look. Best of all, these can be easily removed using regular eye makeup remover.

Last, every girl needs the 2-in-1 Cosmetic Eye Liner Pen + Eyeliner Liquid in her beauty arsenal. Like false eyelashes, liquid eyeliner (a beauty pageant requisite) takes time to master. Luckily, the specially designed tip of the eyeliner helps eyeliner glide on smoothly for the surprisingly precise control. And, the sharp definition you can get is just gorgeous. Waterproof, smudge-resistant, and long-lasting. Retail for entire kit: $11.29
