a couple months since I'd tried enough new products and tools to report back on how things went. I finally have five I can solidly recommend, though, so let's get right to it. Also, if you've tried anything you've been into lately, let us know in the comments. (Seriously, I love buying new...

) 2 / 5 I've loved most of the First Aid Beauty stuff I've tried; the brand's products are reasonably priced and its formulations cater to the sensitive-skinned among us, of which I am one. I'm usually an eye cream non-believer, but this gel-cream has been a refreshing addition to my...

10 / 11 Although some people swear by this product when used as intended, it was more effective for me when used as a highly potent pre-moisturizer serum. 11 / 11 HLA helps this new lipstick formulation provide high-intensity color without stripping lips of needed moisture.

5 / 6 I'm not an enormously brand-loyal person when it comes to makeup, but it's very hard to pry me away from a mascara I like and convince me to try new things. I received both this mascara and the lipstick above in a 500-point Beauty Insider gift while purchasing other products, and if...

Handbags are my first love, professionally-speaking, but when it comes to my personal time, my obsession with beauty products might have surpassed my interest in accessories juuuuust a little bit. We know that many of you love both fashion and beauty (they go together pretty naturally, after...

Share Multi-tasking beauty products are a lifesaver for me, because they allow me to spend less time getting ready and are cost-effective, too. If you're new to the multi-tasking beauty world, check out my recommendations for some of the best multi-tasking beauty products you should try...

As many of you guys have probably noticed by now, I'm something of a beauty product nerd, in addition to being obsessed with bags. Because I know that's also true for many of you, I like to take the opportunity every week or two to talk beauty instead of bags, and today is one such day. I've...
