AURA CACIA Harmonizing Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed oil is a very inexpensive and effective way to moisturize your face and prevent future wrinkles. I found the variety pictured below at a vitamin store I frequent, and couldn’t resist giving it a try after finding out how cheap it is to buy. I did some reading on natural remedies for dry skin, […]

DHC Celestial Eyeshadows

I just happened upon this seller (DHC) looking online for a new mascara (which I also have a blog about) and found that their products contained skin loving and natural ingredients. And, as usual, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try some new eyeshadows – especially at these great prices. This Eye Shadow Moon […]

TOO FACED In Your Dreams

Fancy, is how I’d best describe this palette. It’s a little too unwieldy to pack for use during a trip or at the gym, but it is a very nice collection of colors. The whole palette is fairly thin – just under a centimeter thick. The lid has a ribbon tab pull that makes it […]

LAILA Eau de Parfum Spray

The Laila glass perfume bottle has a substantial weight with a brushed silver lid and a spray dispenser. Laila is written on the front in cursive and simple flowers decorate the back of the bottle. Delicate, feminine and floral is how I would describe the scent. Its lovely and classic. The House of Geir Ness, […]

ESTEE LAUDER Clear Difference Advanced Oil-Control Hydrator

This moisturizer comes in an opaque plastic container that fits nicely in the palm of your hand. When the lotion is pumped out of the container it is white but absorbs quickly to perfectly clear. Its consistency is not too thick, which also lends well to its easy absorption. I purchased this product to help […]

SMASHBOX Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow – Sapphire

The glass pot that holds this product has a screw-on plastic top and the weight of the glass gives it a nice feel. The color Sapphire is a deep navy with a bit of a purple shimmer. Its created to last through 15 hours of wear and is both sweat and humidity resistant. I use […]

URBAN DECAY 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil – Mainline

The color of the outside of this pencil is the color of the actual pencil – Mainline (a medium matte teal). These pencils need to be sharpened as the color gets used, they are not the twist-up kind. Love the staying power of this eyeliner, it truly stays on until you take it off with […]

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil – Purple Velvet

The purple of this eye pencil turns out fairly matte, even though the tip of the pencil looks like it might have some sheen. Its lid is clear, which allows you to see the color before opening it. Although the color of this pencil is nice, it does not have good lasting power and rubs […]

URBAN DECAY ‘Rebound’ Customizable Palette

The botanical design on this metallic Urban Decay four-eyeshadow customizable palette is gorgeous! The four-eyeshadow palettes are the perfect size for toting and handling. It comes empty, ready to hold four Urban Decay eyeshadows of your choice. I know! I already have several of these, but I could not resist getting this one because of […]

SMASHBOX Limitless 15 Hour Wear Cream Shadow – Quartz

This cream eyeshadow comes in a small glass jar/pot with a screw on lid. I bought the color Quartz (a pale, pearl pink) but it also comes in: Fern, Gemstone, Icon, Iris, Neptune, Riches, Sapphire, Sterlings, Stone and Topaz – a nice range of light and dark, mostly jewel-toned colors. I bought this product during […]

The slim case is roughly 2.25″ x 2.55″ and almost 0.5″ deep in size. It stays closed via magnetic closure, and fits […]
