New In Beauty: Clarisonic Mia Smart

  Now, you guys know how much I love my Clarisonic brushes. It didn’t start off that way when I originally tried the original Mia years ago – I thought it was a little too harsh for my skin, and didn’t end up using it much.

Something about the trend of bold-colored liquid lipsticks & enviable instagram pouts inspires a little bit of jealousy in me.
