Treatments (Eye) - TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment

This does exactly what I was hoping it would do for me and I will repurchase. That being said, I definitely don't think it's for everyone. I have very mild darkness under my eyes but I don't like to use concealer because I feel that it ages me. This gives just enough brightening to help with the area while also providing some anti aging benefits. The price seems a little …Read more

This is quickly becoming a staple in my routine!! Great light moisturizer for those of us with oily/combo skin. If you are dry it probably won't be enough moisture for you. And the price is freaking fabulous! Often times trying a new product means breakout city for me, but no issues here. I will repurchase for sure!

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Maja Eau de Toilette (reformulated and repackaged verison)

I have only tried the new formulation so I can't comment on vintage versus reformulated. However I will say that there's a reason fragrances get reformulated - because tastes were different in the 50's, 70's, 90's and you have to modernize or else. That being said, I do detest most department store fragrances. I have a wide range of perfumes for my moods, some of which …Read more

I feel compelled to bring up the rating on this, even though it is a long discontinued product. I finally swapped for it after wanting it for a looong time and I absolutely ADORE it! Most of the colors have a pearly finish, unless you only wear matte colors I don't understand how anyone could say they are too shimmery. I've been wearing this a lot considering I have hundreds of eye …Read more

Threw this rather haphazardly onto an iherb order and the rest is history! I'm OBSESSED with plum lippies and this one makes my heart melt. It's the perfect hint of color to accompany any eye look and feels great on the lips. The fact that it's vegan and organic is just icing on the cake. Ingredients:

Castor seed oil, candelilla wax, avocado oil, rosehip seed oil …

So some lovely swapper sent me this in the matte version as an extra in a swap. I let it languish because it looked so scary and dark, and I don't have terribly fond memories of the warmth all over color that I tried years ago. Recently I got tired of slathering self tanner on my face, it felt like it was clogging my pores and causing me to be extra oily. So I pulled this out and gave it …Read more

Somehow I ended up with a brand new tube of this, I have no idea how - perhaps it was one of my numerous bourbon + online shopping adventures? It ended up in my swap drawer until I stumbled back across it recently as I was inventorying and purging the old yucky stuff. Tried it on...oh my! I go bananas over anything that's pink with a gold tint, how did I miss this???? Gives a nice sheer …Read more

I always have bars of this in stock. The scent just makes me soooo happy! It's a very incensey scent, but not really in a head shop kind of way. It lasts a decent time in the shower and doesn't melt away like some soaps. Seems a little pricey considering how small the bars are, but I can usually find a 10 pack on amazon for between $10 and $12. I can't tell if it's …Read more

YES!!!! I'd been using Certain Dri for the past few years but I hated how itchy it made my armpits. Sweat isn't a major concern of mine, but odor is. Seems like no matter what deoderant I used, my pits smelled not-so-fresh mid to late day even if I wasn't sweating. I can't believe how well this works!!! Be sure to wash your pits REALLY well in the shower and apply the …Read more

Eyeliner - Urban Decay - 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil - Black Velvet

I have used only this since I got it, and I have LOTS of eyeliners!! I love the rich matte color, the fact that it's a warm black instead of blue black, and how easily it glides on the eye. It also smudges nicely. I apply to my upper lash line, smudge with the tip of a stiff brush, then apply a little more right at the base of my lashes. Then stand back and admire because seriously it comes …Read more
