Real Girl Beauty

For every girl who's imagined herself as Lucky Magazine's "Lucky Girl." Or who's conquered her addiction to the bitchier-than-thou forums. Or who reacts every day to her Daily Candy email with the same: "Who can afford that?" Here are some heartfelt health and beauty tips from one Real Girl to another.

Help! My List Must Shrink!

UPDATE: Holy Crap! I'm in Page Six today (Saturday). Ok, gals. I'm telling you all about the novel as soon as I get the time to do it justice! xx

Surprise! My Things To Buy At Sephora list is way too long. And also segmented into which products I'm interested in buying and which I'll need to test first. (Should I be worried about myself?)

But before we listify, guess what? Guess what! My publicist tells me my novel will be mentioned on Page Six in the next few days. Will I be mentioned in the same breath as Paris Hilton? I would say I hope not, except I'd rather say, Oh God, please no. She be sooo skanks! Don't worry, I'll let you know if the mention actually happens, and I'll tell you ALL ABOUT my charming and funny book when it's in stores.

Know what else? In a meeting of the beauty minds that may have left a rift in the space/time/lip gloss continuum, I had the loveliest drinks date with "Beauty Chick" of Beauty Hatchery. She recommended some super new products, and I must say her mascara was gorgeous. (And it's now on my Sephora list!) BC's about to go on a trip around the world, and she promises to report on exciting and exotic beauty treatments that could blow our minds.

Ok, so now you can tell me which Sephora products I need, and which I shouldn't bother busting my budget for.

Sephora Nailpolish Corrector Pen (Wow!)
Lancome Hypnose Mascara (Will it look as nice on me as it did on Beauty Chick?)
Laura Mercier Undercover Concealer Dark Circles. Bane of my existence.
Sephora Light Touch Highlighter (Poor woman's YSL Touche Eclat? We'll see.)
Clinique City Block SPF 25 (Perfect Sunscreen, we will find you yet.)
Clarins UV Plus SPF 40 (Could it be you, Clarins?)
Lorac Gloss Stick in Brownie (A color not shown online. Will they have it?!)
Lancome Photogenic Skin Illuminating Concealer SPF 15 (Are you my perfect concealer??)

What I Might Be Dy.Ing. For. (But I have to test first)
Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Eye Contour Care SPF
Clinique Repairwear Deep Wrinkle Concentrate for Face and Eye
Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Shine Mattifying Gel
DDF C3 Plus Serum
Sephora Whipped Body Delights in Marshmallow Fluff
Jonathan Create Volume Thickening Foam
Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream
Ojon Conditioning Shine Serum

Okay, ladies. Help a girl out! Have you tried any of these? Any advice to give before my upcoming Sephora trip (for which I have gift cards! That are long overdue to be SPENT!)? Any products I should totally take a look at?

Let me hear you say HEY-EY!
