Reader Recs: Girltuesday’s Picks


Dear Wendy readers are some of the most intelligent, stylish, super-cool people around (it’s a proven fact), so it’s a no-brainer to feature some of their favorite products. Many of the recommended products happen to be affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the affiliate links. As always, I appreciate your support! Today’s recommendations come from Girltuesday, who lives in sunny Los Angeles with an awesome roommate. She has a significant other of two years who rocks her world. She enjoys hiking, hanging out at the beach, writing, and checking out LA’s trendy restaurants just to say she did it. She is also a shameless Lifetime Movie Network and Bravo addict. Here are her recommendations:

From coffee, to happy hour, to kisses, to lunch – this 10-hour lipstick STAYS ON. There are also semi-matte options that are less drying. It’s very comfortable, even color that looks more expensive than it is.

This double-V tank is a great buy for under $25 at Nordstrom Rack. I love the airy open back. It’s casual enough to wear to brunch with flip flops and cute and sexy enough to wear out with some wedges or heels.

These skinny pants are the absolute BEST to wear from office to cocktails. The material is heavy and slack-like; they don’t look like yoga pants at all! Every time I wear these I get compliments on how slimming they are for my legs. People always ask me if I’ve lost weight when I wear these pants.

These Portofino shirts are airy and versatile, and they are a work wardrobe staple. If you travel a lot for work, I would recommend these 200% since they are almost impossible to wrinkle. They drape over the body very well, last forever, and also look great with jeans.

These Nip Fab Glycolic Fix Pads are a one-stop-shop for glowy, exfoliated skin. I have sensitive skin that reacts to most products, but this makes my skin look like I just came back from the spa. Bonus – you can find these at your local CVS or Walgreens.

Thanks, Girltuesday!

If you have some products you’d like to recommend to the DW audience, shoot me an email at with links to five recommendations. (Write “reader recs” in the subject line, please.) Your recommendations can be from any store or website, but they need to be accessible online. If your list is a good fit for the site, I’ll ask you to write a brief description of each item/explain what you love so much about it.

Follow along on Facebook, and Instagram.

    I love Sephora lipstick. Their liquid lipstick is also really great, and lasts forever.

      I am also a huge fan of their universal bronzer. They’re makeup is fantastic at a fair price.

    girltuesday, I just ordered that Nordstrom Rack tank in the yellow print. I am not very savvy with online shopping in general, other than finding things on Amazon… and Im honestly not so great at that. Im always in the mood for a great bargain. 🙂 Thanks!

    I like Made in US products that are not tested on animals; especially I prefer products that are not full of poisons. There are amazing current companies selling such products, but they aren’t at Sephora or at Nordstrom. I’m hoping for fresher lists.
