Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Sep/01/2014

How did I live without this for so long?! This washcloth (if you can call it that) is amazing. I have this in both the regular and the super heavy duty. I'm in my early thirties, and my skin has never felt better. I was a huge fan of Lush's Buffy, but found it relatively expensive and the tub cleanup was a mess. Regular body scrubs were hit-or-miss for me. Back brushes didn't …Read more

Eye Shadow - NYX Professional Makeup - Single Eye Shadow - Champagne

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/03/2009

I don't wear eyeshadow everyday, but I find myself reaching for this more and more. I wasn't too impressed with it at first, but it's gradually becoming my quick-fix/go-to eyeshadow (even approaching my favorite, Cover Girl's Mink).



On me, NYX Champagne is a gorgeous, light-medium peachy-nude-beige. This is a nice departure from other neutral/nudes …

Foundations - Sally Hansen - Inspired By Carmindy Natural Beauty Your Skin Makeup ] [DISCONTINUED]

Created with Sketch.

May/31/2009

I'll admit that I was hesitant to try this at first. I'd been a die-hard mineral makeup wearer, and I hadn't worn liquid foundation in something like eight years. I was worried that I'd end up with the usual problems that plagued me when I wore liquid foundation: streaking, poor color match, a mask-like look, completely wearing off by the end of the day... you get the …Read more

Loose Powders - Everyday Minerals - Finishing Dust

May/30/2009

For reference: I'm using the original, non-tinted version. For foundation, I'm currently going back and forth between EDM Matte foundation in Buff Fairly Light Neutral and Sally Hansen/Carmindy in Ecru Beige.




<b>Price</b>: Pretty darn cheap. It could work out to around four or five bucks a pop, if you get the 12-piece kit and stock up (though …

Deodorants - Earth Science - Liken Plant Natural Deodorant

2.0
Created with Sketch.

May/30/2009

Always on the lookout for a 'better' natural deodorant, I decided to pick this up in both the Herbal Liken and Tea Tree and Lavender scents. I liked the fact that it was a solid and not a roll-on (much easier for initial applications, plus I always touch-up during the day, especially with natural deodorants), portable, and not very expensive like some natural deodorants can be. …Read more

Body Scrubs - LUSH - Buffy

Apr/11/2009

A recent foray into epilating/waxing combined with some laziness regarding exfoliation left my skin severely lacking. I wanted something that could exfoliate and moisturize at the same time, but didn't hold out much hope. Could there be a product out there, or was that too good to be true? Enter Buffy.



I was left both pleasantly surprised and seriously disappointed …

Lip Gloss - Burt's Bees - Super Shiny Natural Lip Gloss in SWEET PINK

Mar/16/2009

Picked this up on a whim at the drugstore. Like almost any impulse purchase, this one left me immediately regretting purchasing almost as soon as I'd tried it on.



<b>Color</b>:



The color was pretty in the tube; a light, pretty, and, well, sweet pink. However, maybe it's the fact that my lips are rather pigmented, but the …

Scrubs - Alba Botanica - Sea Enzyme Facial Scrub

Feb/28/2009

My skin is definitely loving this scrub. I've got combination skin that's not very acne-prone, but is prone to redness and large pores. I wanted something that was leaning more towards the natural side and definitely wasn't too harsh (sorry, St. Ives Apricot, but I'm looking at you!). I've had success with a few other products in Alba's Sea Minerals line, and …Read more

Deodorants - Arm & Hammer - Essentials Natural Deodorant

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/28/2009

Hmmm... I'm a bit torn on this. I absolutely <i>adore</> the scent, it's easy to use (unlike roll-ons, no waiting forever for it to dry) and it really does keep me odor-free all day. However, like another reviewer, I too developed a rash after using it several days in a row. Which was odd, because unlike the other times I've gotten rashes from natural deodorants …Read more

Eyeliner - Palladio Beauty - Herbal Eye Liner Pencil Waterproof Retractable - Brownie

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/21/2009

So far, this is the best eyeliner I've tried. I've got dark brown eyes that are on the smaller side, so I'm usually wary of liners. Brownie is a dark, chocolatey brown <i>without</i> any tinges of red, like most browns tend to have. It's also easily smudgeable after application (but only for a few seconds, so work quickly), yet stays -- and I do mean …Read more
