Are you a blush kind of girl?

I’ve never really used blush.  (Okay, I did have a couple horrific months of experimenting when I was 13, but I won’t count that). Maybe I don’t know how to apply it, or maybe I’m just so naturally gorgeous I don’t need it (I’ll let you guess the answer to that one!). 

If anything, I use a bronzer…just not blush.  I guess it would really depend on your skin tone.  My skin tone is an olive color, and Cate Blanchett (above) has much fairer skin.  Here she is today at the L’Oreal Paris 2007 AFI Awards Dinner in Melbourne, Australia. She looks beautiful!  Also glowing from her pregnancy, I’m sure. :)

Thin enough to stuff in any purse, this little bag is a chic way to carry your mini makeup essentials. But don’t just relegate it to mere worker status: these vivid colors add sparkle to any outfit. Perfect as an evening clutch, it has room for keys, ID, and a lipstick.

Jocelyn’s Must-Have #7!

One of my favorite products this season – I haven’t yet reviewed on this site.  And I’m not sure why I never got around to reviewing it, because it’s a daily staple for me.  My hands are always dry this time of year, with my cuticles suffering the most!  Earlier this year I found a Burt’s Bees product that is absolute amazing.  (And aren’t all Burt’s Bees products?) 

Lemon Butter Cuticle Creme! Get 10 perfect fingers and 10 perfect toes.

How it Works:
This natural nail treatment softens cuticles and fortifies nails. Sweet almond oil, vitamin E and cocoa butter moisturize. Then beeswax seals in the goodness. A touch of lemon oil makes your nails appear and smell incredibly clean and beautiful. And, with regular use, your nails will become stronger and dry cuticles will disappear.

How to Use It:
Massage the cream into your cuticles and nails at least once a day. For an intensive overnight cuticle treatment, apply generously to your hands and nails before bed.

Featured Ingredient
Lemon Oil — Obtained from the fresh peel of the fruit of the Citrus Lemon tree, this oil is known for its astringent and anti-irritant qualities.

I’m not a huge lipstick person. My husband doesn’t like lipstick – he likes the natural look. So when I reviewed this product earlier this year, I knew I had to pick it up. And it was a GREAT find! If you want a natural lipstick color – try this out! It only comes in one shade, and can be used as a lipstick or a blush.

Rush Hour from Benefit.

What it is:
A ten second fresh and lively touch-up for lips and cheeks.

What it is formulated to do:
Designed for the gal on-the-go who doesn’t wear a lot of makeup, this instant makeover for lips and cheeks instantly warms the complexion for a neutral rosy glow with a simple swipe and blend motion.
