The blogging community is a wonderful one filled with inspiration, motivation, & insight. I love to surf the web & check out what bloggers have to say, what they're using, & how it fares. That said, I begin to realize what items are trending. As popular as they are, I have to admit I haven't tried many of the most talked about, most sought after beauty products on the market. I'm currently going through a phase of utilizing what I already own & investing in pieces I can see myself using often. Am I a bad blogger? Because these are some beauty products I still haven't tried.

Roller Lash by Benefit Cosmetics - I've seen so many posts & reviews for this. The reviews are prevalent & unending. However, the thing that I've noticed is that there are mixed reviews. Some people swear by it whereas others are unimpressed. I obviously don't have an opinion on it since I have yet to try it.

Urban Decay Naked Palette - Every blogger & her mother, grandmother, sister, & friend has talked about this palette. Now there's not just one Naked Palette there are several. And, you guessed it, I haven't tested out a single one. Due to the never ending wave of make up of the day posts, I feel like I know this palette like the back of my hand.

Nars Orgasm Blush - It's safe to say Orgasm is a cult classic. The blush has been a staple for several years now, but I just haven't made the leap to purchasing it. It truly has such a spectacular color & I'm pretty sure it would go great with my skin tone. I love the mild, subdued hue.

beautyblender Makeup Sponge Applicator - This little make up sponge sponge is everywhere. Pretty much everyone has tried it. The eco-friendly, reusable factor is a highlight for me. Apparently you can use it for concealer, foundation, primer, cream blush, you name it.

Ruby Woo by MAC - Despite it being one of the best selling lipsticks in the world, I unintentionally keep ignoring Ruby Woo. It's such a bold & exciting shade of red, but I always forget about it once I head to the mall. It's gorgeous & has such a pop!
I never claimed to be beauty expert so don't be too shocked that I haven't tested these cult classics yet. But it's safe to say I do need to expand my repertoire. Hopefully I'm not the only one out there. Have you not tried any of these items as well? I can't be the only one can I? :]
