Links We Love: Week of December 5, 2011

Monday, Monday. I made the executive decision this morning to share some of my favorite beauty- and skincare-related links every Monday with you. Anything I’ve read during the last week that I think you’ll enjoy, I’ll post right here!

Girl With Severe Cystic Acne Makes Truly Impressive Foundation Tutorial – The Gloss

Why we loved it: Well, it is incredible! Watch the impressive transformation as Cassandra shows you how to turn acne-covered skin into flawless-looking skin. As someone who suffers from sporadic cystic acne, it is really cool to see that there are ways to cover it up.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter – Lollipop – My Highest Self

Why we loved it: Inexpensive at just $7, a gorgeous color (the color I prefer wearing myself) and shiny. Tina’s great review makes this lip butter sound like a winner! Can’t wait to try this one out myself.

Core Fusion Weight Loss Diary: Current Results And Photos From My Weight Loss Journey – Fashion. Style. Beauty.

Why we loved it: We love reading stories about the incredible successes of others. In this case, beauty blogger Kristin describes how she lost 34 pounds (75 pounds total!) in a really healthy way — with a commitment to exercising and clean eating. Truly inspiring!

Confessions of a Beauty Expert – I Am So Sorry! – YBA

Why we loved it: As someone who’s been too lazy to take off my makeup a few too many times, it is refreshing to hear that even beauty experts succumb to the same evils as the rest of us. Zakiyyah Walker — we forgive you! Now, I just hope you can forgive me for what I am about to do tonight . . . Joking!

Have you read anything you love this week? Post it in the comments — I’d love to know!

Really. See More Articles by Dori
