Palette, Remover, and...Yogurt?


I think the person that voted that I should write on my day, was kidding. But I'll try to keep each post a little more personal...while not making this some sort of diary entry. Btw, more mens things coming right up! The Mr is constantly at work trying to come up with some sort of review on the things he likes and doesn't like. I think we have a good one coming!

Have you seen the Sephora Moroccan Sunrise Palette? I've purchased only one full palette from the Sephora brand before, and have always been pleased with their shadows and pigments. I wouldn't say they're the best that I've ever run across, but they are most definitely on par with some of the other lines in the store. The casing and the colors are so pretty and everyday wearable in this one...I seem to have such an affinity to things Eastern, so I'll probably be checking this out later this weekend.

And now for the final review of the week. I have been searching high and low for an eye makeup remover that will do a few things, and do them best.

1. Be non-oily
2. Remove everything, even stubborn mascara and liner
3. Not leave me with blurry vision (you just went omg, I know what you mean! Right?)
4. Do all of the above stated things very quickly, preventing me from having to rub my eyes

It has been a long journey! Bliss was too gentle, not removing a thing...while Lancome's Bi-Facil is no longer oily (it's been reformulated), but no longer removes as it once did. Alas, I have found the winner, and it's something that I drove a girlfriend out of her way to purchase yesterday as a testament of the impact it's had on me! I'm talking about Mandom's Makeup Cleansing Lotion (I use the Age Care version--there's three types). It's a Japanese brand that is water-based and alcohol free, but I tell you...works beautifully! The bottle states "Ready for bed as soon as possible". Gotta love that! Usually by the time I'm washing my face, my eyes are nearly shut anyhow, and I'd probably be better off sleeping! Just a couple of pumps of this water-like solution applied to a cotton pad, then you lay it on your eye for oh..3 seconds. Voila, everything's gone! There's no leftover mascara running down your cheeks when you actually begin washing your face. It's like a little miracle, and even removes waterproof formulated makeup. You'll never know why you paid twice the price on anything else, and then you'll begin pushing it to your friends like a crazy addict (or maybe that's just me).

Have a fabulous weekend! Mine is starting with a bowl of maple yogurt..mmm...and ending with one too many dress fittings. Ugh. Any plans?

Thank you for all your reviews! I'm so glad I came across your blog. I'm too indecisive I could spend all day trying to pick a color of eyeshadow at Nordstroms, so hearing your reviews really help narrow the choices down for my finicky brain :)
I'm not sure where you are located but I'm in Utah and it is soo dry my face is crying for moisture, do you have any recommendations for a good face moisturizer?

Hi Kayleen! Thanks for reading ;)
I'm so glad you came across the blog too!

I'm not in Utah, but it is definitely cold and dry at the moment where I am as well...although, I suppose my skin is on the dry side year-round.

In terms of moisturizers, I am somewhat addicted--and I like to switch them up once in a while to keep them active and on their toes! Here's what I like:

-La Mer: It's a bit pricey, yes. However, I believe that my jars have always lasted over a year, if not two years. I don't use it every single day, and you only need the slightest bit. Therefore, in terms of cost per wear...it's looking pretty good!

-Arbonne's NutriMin C RE9 REcover Night Creme: This can be purchased online or through a provider, and is clearly a night creme. However, I like to use it in the mornings as I typically need a bit of extra moisture.

-Mario Badescu's Chamomile Night Cream: This may be the case for you also, but when my skin begins to feel dry and irritated, it can sometimes redden in areas too. I've only been using this product for about two weeks, and I'm in love! It has quite a different texture than what you'd normally find in a cream...almost more of a balm. The chamomile is very calming on red skin, which makes it perfect if you are chapped. It soaks right in and doesn't leave a filmy finish.

-Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream: This is a Japanese product, and it will un-dry anything. Hands, elbows, knees and face! It has a bit of a Vick's Vapor Rub scent (although I like that in the same strange way that I appreciate the smell of gasoline..), and is used by some who climb Mt Everest, and travel the South Pole. If that isn't testimony enough to how well the stuff works, I don't know what is!

So that is a bit of my round-robin of intense moisturizers...I hope that it helps! Let me know if you find one that works for you :)
