Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you celebrating today? I’ll probably buy a Guiness today and maybe try to cook something Irish. And think about my family’s trip to Ireland last year, which was amazing (if you read the whole post, you’ll see a photo slideshow of our trip!)
Green beauty can mean many things. Of course it can be a fun green lipstick, eye makeup or nail polish or it can be natural beauty products. Below are some of my faves of both for today:
Vibrant Shock Lipstick ($3.99) — Be bold and unleash your inner leprechaun with Essence’s silky, sea green, matt lip color in “No To Mainstream”. Keep it clean, simple and put on the pout that you never knew you needed! “Kiss Me I’m Irish”!
Nail Art DUO Stylist ($2.49) — Channel the Emerald Isles and unlock your creativity – Essence has the tools that can upgrade your look all the way to the tips of your fingers…literally! Use the DUO Stylist to create innovative nail designs in every shade of IRISH, the possibilities are endless!
The Gel Nail Polish ($1.99) — Mint isn’t just for ice cream or gum, your nails are dying to be adorned with a kiss of color courtesy of, “Play With My Mint” super shiny nail polish! No lamp or leprechaun required! If you’re not ready to fully embrace your Irish roots, add a hint of mint instead – the perfect remedy for the reluctant St Patrick’s Day reveler!
Say No To Redness ($2.99) — No need to blush, say YES to a perfect complexion and NO TO Redness with this shamrock shaded color-correcting concealer. A must-have for a flawless face, this easy to blend, retractable mini makes the perfect addition to your St Patrick’s Day beauty regime.
