Garnier Aloe Refreshing Cream Cleanser

I've been using the Garnier SkinActive Aloe Refreshing Cleanser that I received free from BzzAgent (not a referral link) for about 2 weeks now and have a few thoughts. I have combination skin with some dry patches and live in a desert climate so hydration is very important to me. I use this cleanser as my … Continue reading Garnier Aloe Refreshing Cream Cleanser

Use It Up!

I get it. We all want the newest over-hyped palette that just came out and OMG it's limited edition!!! For me, the excitement of getting the latest greatest thing is only surpassed by using it up. This stuff doesn't last forever, eventually it'll expire, go bad, go off trend. The Stila Perfect Me Perfect Hue … Continue reading Use It Up!

ColourPop 12 Super Shock Shadows, 1 Blush & 1 Highlighter

Woop for ColourPop! I placed an order during the Labor day flash sale. All of these items were either 50% off or free. Can't beat that. If you aren't familiar with the ColourPop Super Shock Shadows , they are a cream to powder formula best applied with a finger or a stiff, flat synthetic brush. … Continue reading ColourPop 12 Super Shock Shadows, 1 Blush & 1 Highlighter

Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighters & Ombre Blush

This was part of my Walgreen's haul purchased with points. The MegaGlo Highlighters and the Ombre Blush are both regularly $4.99. The highlighters are definitely on the stiff and dry side. They apply nicely with a fluffy synthetic brush and I would put them at the top of the list for drugstore highlighters. I really … Continue reading Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighters & Ombre Blush

Sephora Eye Shadow Haul

Let's just cut to the chase. I liked these Sephora eye shadows a lot more than I thought I would! They do not have a lot of kick up, they blend easily and are much softer than they look. The silver (Diamonds Are Forever) is the best silver I've ever owned. These are definitely worth taking … Continue reading Sephora Eye Shadow Haul

Butter London Sheer Wisdom Lip Oil

This is a pretty interesting product, especially for a lipstick hater like myself. I hate wearing anything on my lips even lip balm. The only thing I've used consistently and really like is the YSL Oil In Stick Lip balm that I reviewed here. This Butter London lip oil in Ballet Blush was part of … Continue reading Butter London Sheer Wisdom Lip Oil

$5 Walgreens Haul

Yup, that's right. On the last day of Walgreen's buy 2 get 1 free sale, I purchased 3 Soap & Glory body washes, 2 scrubs, and 1 body butter (plus 3 Wet N Wild highlighters that I'll do a separate post on later) for $5 out of pocket. I used Walgreens Balance rewards points that … Continue reading $5 Walgreens Haul

Dermal Korea Sheet Masks

Here's a quick post of one of my favorite and most re purchased beauty items ever! I've been buying these Dermal sheet masks for years. YEARS! Even after trying some of the fancier (read, more expensive) sheet masks, I always come back to these. I love that they are lightly fragranced, soft and pliable so … Continue reading Dermal Korea Sheet Masks

September Boxycharm – 2nd Box 2nd Snafu

September Boxycharm time. Although this box was pretty meh for me, it's still near impossible to beat for the cost. My palette arrives with 2 pans smashed. After 2 emails to Boxycharm, the second after which they asked for a picture of the palette next to the shipping box, they credited my Boxycharm account with … Continue reading September Boxycharm – 2nd Box 2nd Snafu
