I am super picky about nail polish and typically only buy Essie, OPI, and Orly. I passed by a display of this at Whole Foods and one of the shades really caught my eye. I was drawn to the shade Desert Princess, it's a nice dark pink with a warm tone, this a a creme shade meaning it dries glossy but is not glittery. The shade was almost completely opaque in one coat, and could probably be …Read more

Body Scrubs - Nubian Heritage - Indian Hemp & Haitian Vetiver Hand & Body Scrub

My absolute favorite scrub hands down. First and foremost this smells amazing, Vetiver isn't a common fragrance, it's a bit earthy, not sweet or floral, it potent, but not as in your face as Lavender. Second, this scrub is coarse, very coarse and will buff away rough patches on knees and elbows. I'm a fan of coarser scrubs, this definitely is not for the face but as a body scrub …Read more

Skincare - Face - L'Oreal Paris - Revitalist Derm Intensives 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum

My skin is both dry and dehydrated and while I'm fairly adept at combating the dryness, tackling dehydration is another subject. At nearly 40 years old, my skin was looking dull despite using C-serum, AHA, and a face oil. I had used a Hyaluronic Acid mask and really like the results, but it's impractical to use daily. I've been using this twice a day, it's rather sticky …Read more

I had used Revlon Colorstay foundation for oily skin years ago because it was always getting rave reviews and mentions on the board. At some point I switched to high end and its been a good 6-10 years since I used this. I do have dry skin so I opted for the dry skin version. This now comes with a pump, always a plus. I wear the shade Buff, one of the few shades good for fair olive skin. …Read more

This is the third shade in the Treat Love and color line that I have purchased. This TLC line is meant to be sheer the semi-sheer, on me one coat was sheer, and two was semi-sheer. The color is a pinkish beige, on fair skin it can almost looks like a light rose gold, and medium and deep skin it's closer to a nude. It wears really well, and I had it on an entire week before I got a couple …Read more

Polishes - Essie - Nail Polish - Less Is Aura

3 months ago

This may be my first HG nail polish, seriously this is perfect. The shade Less Is Aura is universally flattering nude shade, Essie describes it as warm terra cotta beige, but it's I'd say it's close to mauve, but more of a brownish pink. This is a creme finish, no glitter or shimmer, and dried down with a nice shine. The real stand out for me is that it goes on fully opaque in …Read more

Ok so I probably overdosed on glitter in the late 90's, but I never lost my affinity for the stuff. Sorry not sorry, but I dislike matte. So Glitter Goals is a glittery liquid lipstick that comes in a variety of shades. I have the shade X Infinity which is described as violet and pink with magenta glitter. I would say that's an accurate description, the shade is a very vivid bright …Read more

Maybellines color Tattoo cream eyeshadows have been around a while now. I've tried quite a few of them but stick with nude and natural shades for those one and done days. Front runner is one of the newer shade, though they seem to launch new shades and discontinue old ones pretty frequently. Front Runner is a unique shade, it's a bit of a neutral color, not warm enough to really be …Read more

I have fair olive skin, and as with a lot of others with olive skin, dark under eye circles are an issue. My dark circles are reddish purple, and a lot of under eye products have a pink tone, but this only makes red/purple look worse as it wont correct those tones. I wasn't sure if I should go with the yellow or green, but opted for the yellow since my circles are more purple than red. I …Read more

Deodorants - Dove - Dry Spray Antiperspirant - All

Saying this is expensive, would be a stretch of the truth, however a can of the aerosol spray costs two to three times more than the solid. A stick of deodorant typically lasts be 4-6 months, while the aerosol can only lasted about a month or two. This goes on dry immediately with a light spray and dries pretty quickly with a heavier spray. The biggest upside is this leaves no white residue …Read more
