GiggleSugar Reveals Her Beauty Secrets

BellaSugar launched a year ago this week, and I've had so much fun getting to know so many of you. I've also had a wonderful time making friends with the other Sugars. So to celebrate a year of Bella, I've asked my fellow Sugars to share their beauty advice this week. First up is Giggle, who is as pretty as she is hilarious. So here we go:

Which beauty products are your must-haves?
Prescriptives Traceless tinted moisturizer, Aveeno calming moisturizer with SPF 15 and Aveeno nighttime wrinkle cream, Vincent Longo and Nars concealers, Bobbi Brown eye shadows, and Lancome Definicils mascara. Lipstick at all times.

What’s your favorite beauty ritual?
Putting on glam makeup I wouldn’t wear during the day. (Fab introduced me to Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Eye Gel I put on my lashline. Hot!)

To find out which lipstick Giggle hoards,


What’s your go-to lip product?
I have four that I generally have with me at all times: 1) Discontinued L'Oreal Shine Delice in Black Cherry for day; it's a sheer tint that makes me look alive and healthy instead of dead and pallid. If I put a lot on it’s great for night. 2) Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur # 129 in Fuchsia Pink mostly for nighttime. It’s a little intense. 3) Laura Mercier Plum Wine for day. 4) Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Replenishing lip balm.

What is your morning beauty routine?
I grew up in Texas and I am a Leo. That might explain the following. You might not know it (please tell me I don’t look like a Vegas showgirl) but I wear a lot of makeup. Unless I wear my glasses, in which case, only lip gloss.

What’s your signature fragrance?
Gucci Rush

What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever received?
Go light on foundation to look younger.

And the worst advice?
“You should do something with your brows.” Some people have bushy brows, and futzing with them makes them look like a completely different, alien person. And not in a good way. I’ll pluck some stray hairs, but reshaping? Not happening.

Any tips or tricks you want to share with readers?
Organize your makeup in a three-story Container Store acrylic container and your morning routine (if you wear makeup) will be a cinch. It’s small enough that you can’t have everything in there — just the stuff you use and need.

What's your favorite drugstore beauty product?
A discontinued L’Oreal lipstick called Shine Delice in Black Cherry. (Wait, did I say that ten times already?) I have enough to last me until I’m 90, so it’s all good. (I know, I know, I’m supposed to throw them out. You’ll have to pry them from my cold, dead hands.)

When do you feel the most beautiful?
There’s no question that I feel good about how I look when I’m well-groomed and put together, but it’s when I’m having a good time with friends and laughing that I feel best about everything.

Giggle, those lipsticks were amazing...I had so many different shades!! I loved the one that looked bright red in the tube, but it was more of a sheer pink on the lips. I forget what it was called. The Black Cherry one that you mentioned was nice too. I also loved Strawberry Smash. And then they had the Blush Delice too, which came in a few pretty shades and also smelled kind of fruity. Of course I owned a couple of those too!

Emalove, you're right, it is L'Oreal Shine Delice. (I made it unnecessarily French.) And I'm not kidding about having about 8 of them left!! :kiss:

I wonder if she's talking about the L'Oreal Shine Delice sheer lipsticks?? If so, I LOVED those! They smelled so fruity and came in the BEST shades. I think I had the Black Cherry one too.

That's really good advice on the foundation, Giggle. So many people make that mistake. LMAO @ prying the lipstick from your cold, dead hands. :rotfl: I can't wait to read the other Sugar beauty secrets. :woohoo:

I'm glad I don't have specific lipsticks I buy on a regular basis so I don't have to be annoyed if it's discontinued.
