Baby-Friendly Makeup

A friend of mine recently had a baby and was heading back to work after her maternity leave. One day, we were shopping in Target and she lamented how she wanted to go to the makeup aisle but felt a bit guilty spending money that wasn't something for the baby. Though try as I might to offer to get her something, she insisted I shouldn't. I even tried to buy her diapers! It was a no-go. Well, I figured that if I were to send a package to her house, it wouldn't be something she could hand back to me! So, I decided to put together a list from Sephora of baby and thus mommy-friendly makeup items. It occurred to me while I was sifting through that stick makeup was harder to find than I had thought (I didn't want to get her anything that required a brush to apply and wanted to avoid pots). I finally settled on the items below. I hope she enjoys them!

Tarte Lock & Roll Creaseless Eyeshadow Duo in Sandstone $17: Purse-friendly and no additional applicator or brushes required!

Sephora Brand Flashy Liner in Flashy Pink $8: For bright eyes and the appearance of sleep even when she might not be getting much!

Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick in Rosy Blush $18.50: Dot on cheek, rub and run out the door glow!

And finally, the most luxe item in the package:

Fresh Sugar Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment $22.50: For just enough color and even SPF for swipe and go!

I even splurged on a $2 gift bag (remember when those were free... oh those were the days). Am I the most awesome friend or what?

@ashnickers: Well, not only are they... weird and rubbery now, they can't really cost $2 to produce, can they?

@JennXOXO: I hope so! The package is arriving today. I've been teasing her on facebook that she's getting something but I won't tell her what it is because I like a surprise!
