Charming Observations and I hope Advice

Beauty of Yoga

Hi everyone. I wanted to do a small post today. I ran some errands today and stopped into some shops. I got some things that I’d been looking for for a while. Mostly some Lipsmackers. I loved them growing up. Especially the jumbo Smackers. I bought a trio with flavors Cherry Pomegranate, Cozy Cupcake and Strawberry Snowflake. I was so excited to find them. I was also able to get two items. The first is a lip gloss called Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid in Pink Carats. It matches the Sheer Raspberry that I finished. I think Almay discontinued the Sheer Raspberry Lipgloss. It was so pretty but maybe a little sticky but I still loved it.And secondly, Pure Concealer Blemish Treatment Stick in Light. I’m really happy to buy these things. I’m happy my skin is clear and in no rush to use any more Blemish treatments for awhile.
Finally, the Beauty of Yoga. I’ve been practicing Yoga on and off for about 2 years now. I love the feeling my mind and body experience during my practice. It’s part of an internal beauty that glows through to the outside. Try it and you might love it. Lord knows we all need stress relief.

Mascara and Pure Seduction

Today I wanted to blog about some of the items that i have been using on a regular basis. One of my favorite mascaras has always been Great lash in Very Black. I decided to buy a mascara in Blackest Black a few months ago because it was on special.I really like it because it doesn’t clump and it really does a great job. I recently purchased Lash Blast and can’t wait to try that one. I have used the Lash Exact and loved it but never bought it again. I like to try different things until i can’t live without it. I adore mascara because it really does wonders for your eyes. In general, it makes your lashes sexy with volume and lengthening or simple yet sultry depending on the occasion, mood and brand.
I finished my Cucumber Toner and haven’t gone to the mall to repurchase yet. So I decided to get some Toner at the druggist. Hydrafresh Toner smells beautiful and is 99% alcohol free. It doesn’t dry out my skin the way some astringents have in the past. It refreshes and my skin is definitely softer and vibrant after I use it. My oily skin is not so shiny as before toner so that is a plus.
Next, a gift from the holidays that I had been saving for a special occasion but decided to use it anyway. I can make my own special occasions. Ultra Softening Body Butter. The jar is beautiful. It’s pink and floral. The Body Butter goes on smooth and the smell is nice. It leaves your skin soft and supple.The scent is not over powering and is delicious after a nice shower.

The Bee’s Knees

I absolutely love natural lip balm. So far, it’s the only lip balm that hasn’t broken me out. It’s soothing and definitely refreshing. Your lips stay moisturized for a long time. It’s natural and not tested on animals. I’m tempted to get a natural Lip Shimmer and may do so on another run. I’m also really loving my new favorite hair straightening serum, Fantasia Hair Polisher. It smells so good and fruity and does a great job at protecting your hair while you style it.

In the Mood for New Brushes

I’ve been looking through some of the beauty websites and videos looking for recommendations for new makeup brushes. Many of the Makeup Artists recommend MAC brushes and they know all of them by numbers. I’m a simpler, natural girl looking for simple, natural and soft brushes. The brushes I have right now have begun to shed a bit after I wash them so I’ve been searching. A few folks have recommended Eco Tools. They are natural ans made from Bamboo and good for the planet. I’m seriously thinking of getting them. I’ve also heard Essence of Beauty has really nice ones too. I’ll see which one wins the soft yet firm test.

My Skincare

So I just got a Facial Cleansing Gel for oily skin. And I have to say that it’s really great. I don’t have the full system but I am definitely going to get it soon. The Cleansing Gel is very smooth and it really deep cleans. I really hope to get others’ opinions about the system before I buy it.
Among other things in my life, moisturizer is something of a puzzle for me. I have oily skin and have read that regardless if you have oily skin, you should still moisturize because your skin could be dehydrated. I have always moisturized but lately it seems I’m breaking out. So I don’t know if it’s because of products or if my diet is in disarray. I may try a hiatus for a day or two, just to see.

Small haul but great things!

HIBISCUSI’ve been pretty busy lately but I definitely wanted to post today. I haven’t done any major shopping lately because I want to save some money. But I did purchase 3 things and I hope to do a review very soon on them. I just got the new Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Lipcolor in Top Tomato. They say it’s food proof and it’s a beautiful red shade. I’ve read that it really lasts a good long time so I’m looking forward to trying it. I also got Clinique’s Superbalm Lip Treatment. I’ve been having problems with drugstore chapsticks. They have started to break me out so I’m thinking of going all natural. But I wanted to try Clinique because I’ve always been a fan of their products. And finally, I’m really loving Mario Badesco Skincare so I just got more Enzyme Cleansing Gel. I love it so much. It smells natural and clean and I just love it!!
