Thoughts for Thursday: Casey’s Top Picks

Finally blogging on a Thursday means finally joining Annie and Natalie for their Thoughts for Thursday Linkup! 

Thoughts for Thursday

My sister-in-law, Casey, loves beauty products more than just about anyone I know.  She is constantly introducing me to great new products.  In fact, she has been known to have a running list of products she recommends just for me!  Casey was at our house visiting last night, and I asked her what she would name her top three products of all time.  We wound up discussing her top three picks in three different beauty categories – makeup, skincare, and hair care.  Here are Casey’s picks and our commentary in parenthesis:

  1. Benefit “They’re Real” Mascara (aka eyelash crack)

Happy Thursday!  I’m going to attempt to surprise even myself and blog tomorrow for Five on Friday. #2daysinarow #whoami


  1. I wanted to try the on the run palette because well it just makes more sense to carry a one stop shop instead of so much other crap!! I think it might be a good birthday gift for myself!! xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  2. Naked on the run palette sounds amazing!!!!

  3. Oh I love suave dry shampoo as well. I have been eying that naked pallet forever!!

  4. I love the Naked eyeshadows that is all i use :)
