057. | theBalm Time Balm Face Primer

My love of face primers and theBalm Cosmetics has been well documented on Champagne Daydream. I was shocked when I was browsing through my makeup collection and discovered that I didn't own Time Balm Primer, theBalm's vitamin-infused face primer. Luckily, this discovery was made around the time theBalm was featured in HauteLook, and I was able to get a killer discount. Keep reading for details of my new favorite primer!

056. | Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in Rouge

One thing I love - day or night, any time of year - is a solid red lipstick. Red lipstick always gives me an extra boost of confidence and makes me feel a little more glamorous. I love how it is strong and empowering, yet simultaneously remains sultry and feminine. I've come across many women who have told me that they don't look good in red lipstick, or don't feel comfortable wearing it.

Even now, while I have many, many reds that I love and that I know look flattering on me, I am constantly searching for my perfect shade. So, when I found this Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Ultra Lipstick in Rouge in the bottom of a swag bag I received at a party, I was excited to test it out. Keep reading for details!

054. | theBalm Time Balm Concealer

If you've read any of my other posts, it's probably pretty obvious that I'm a big fan of theBalm Cosmetics. I have a ton of their products and I am continually buying more. Recently, I ran out of the concealer I had been using for the past few months (Maybelline Instant Age Rewind in Brightener) and I wanted to try something new. Luckily, this happened at the exact time theBalm was featured on HauteLook, so I was able to get the Time Balm Concealer at a great price. Keep reading for details!
