Orglamix Review I recently received some items from Orglamix and wanted to give it a try. They are an organic line that consists of mineral makeup for face, cheeks, eyes, and they carry tools (makeup brushes and sponges). All Orglamix products are proudly formulated without nano particles, bismuth oxychloride, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals or parabens. If you have sensitive skin, this might be the line for you! Orglamix is also a proud member of PETA. Below is the Orglamix believes that I really love.
Natural beauty shouldn't cost a fortune
That six deep breaths a day can improve your life
We are all beautiful inside and out
That you already make a difference in the world
Speak your mind from your heart
A good laugh should be an essential ingredient to your day
In order Cashmere, Obsidian, Silk, Geranium, and Celestite. These colors are wet (below) to show their true brightness.
I received 5 1.5g/.05oz beautiful eye colors and really enjoyed trying and playing with these colors. The texture of these minerals are smooth and soft, go on easy and vibrant. They can be used dry or mixed with mixing medium or water for a more vibrant look. Now if your a person that don't care for loose minerals but love the colors, then you can mix the minerals and press at home yourself (photo tutorial coming soon on pressing pigments). I would recommend these to everyone and the price won't break your pocket book at $4.99 each.
*I was not paid for this review and this is my honest opinion of the product.
I wanted to share with you my haul from The Makeup Show on May 17, 2010. Below are a few pictures of my small haul. In pictures there is eyeshadow palettes and tins, Temptu airbrush makeup set, OCC airbrush makeup and 2 Lip Tars, YoungBlood foundation and HD powder, Eve Pearl concealer and liquid eyeliner pen, Mehron Gem Powders, and Myrabelle mascara shield.
Loreal Studio Secrets Professional Magic Perfecting Base
I have to say drug store products have come up and are really coming alive in the last 5 years or so. (my opinion) I was surprise and excited to see that Loreal was coming out with a studio line to sell everywhere. I saw the commercial and received a sample card of this product and tried it. After I went straight to the store (Ulta) and purchased.
Now after testing it for a few weeks here are my like and dislikes of this product.
Velvet smooth texture
Smooth out skin
Helps the appearance of pores and fine lines
Notice it even out my skin tone a bit
Leave skin with a nice matte finish
Not for combo or oily skin (my opinion)
Overall, I did like the products. Applying it was nice and light. Left my skin feeling soft and the texture is so nice and smooth. My skin just looked better but just apply this all over. It also helped even out my skin tone. Now, I do have combination skin (t-zone shine) and through out the day I had to use blotting paper (clean and clear are my fav) to take the shine away. That was the only down fall of the product, but with that said I would recommend and great for using on it's own.

Here is my Lorac mini haul from their VIP Sale. I purchased the CD3 Island Escape, Cheek Stamp in Island Spice, Hibiscus, Coral, Golden Glow, and oil free foundations in S7-8. I purchased 2 foundations since I wasn't sure on my color.
The CD3 Island Escape is convenient and a nice set with colors that are very pigmented. The lip gloss are really nice and moisturizing.
The cheek stamp is exactly that. It's a stamp with color on the bottom and the top is the stamp. I like the idea but the spring in the device makes to much noise.
The foundation isoil, fragrance and silicone free formula. Leaves a natural coverage on your skin and great for sensitive skin. I prefer to apply this with a sponge (beauty blender).

Juice Beauty Review
I was doing my weekly shopping at Sephora one day (shop in store, online, or Sephora JCP) and came across their clearance tower. The thing that stood out to me was Juice Beauty. It's been a line I have always been interested to try but stopped because I didn't know much about it and the peel was $45. That was $45 I didn't want to spend at that time. I know I sound cheap but what can I say I can be cheap.
Well, while I was looking at the product I noticed that it was 75% off. I thought "This is my chance to try it and it won't kill my pockets". I picked up the cleansing gel, green apple peel full strength, organic facial rejuvenating mask, antioxidant serum, and organic facial moisturizer concentrate. I picked up a lot and really wanted to try the line at it's fullest. Here a little info about the company: Juice Beauty history.
After looking into the company and testing the products, I ran back to Sephora looking for more to stock up on. It was upsetting to go into Sephora to be told that they no longer carry it. :( I'm the type of person that doesn't take no for an answer. I went home and called all the Sephora's in my area and no luck. So that week I went back to the Sephora JCP I got the original products from and Surprise, they still had product after they told me they were out. I pretty much got all the rest of the stock. I left out of there so happy and proud of myself for not giving up. Now let me explain why I love this line.
Well, I'll let Juice beauty explain it better. "Most beauty products that use “organic” in their marketing use only a few organic ingredients in a water base, making the total organic content dilute and often less than 5%. Instead of the typical water base that cannot be certified “organic or pesticide free,” Juice Beauty puts over 100 USDA certified organic powerful ingredients into a 100% certified organic juice base (made from over 30 different juices) thus bringing the total organic content up to 98% in every product".
I have been using this line for 30 days and have really noticed the difference in my skin. It's firmer, glowy, and fresh looking. I have never been complemented so much on my skin until I started using this line. This is from a person that has been dealing with adult acne since I was 23 years old. Now I must say my skin looks amazing and I think it's because of this line. I love Juice Beauty and I recommend it to everyone.

We need your help, spread the word
So, the other day I did a bit of a haul on ELF. I received a code for 60% off studio line and I took full advantage of it. The haul included bronzers in warm, cool, and golden; plus brush shampoo, 11 piece set of Studio brushes, and facial wipes that I love. Now, I've been eyeballing these brushes for some time. I do have a few brushes from the line but was waiting for the prefect time to get the set. This week was it!
Now let me start by saying that I've been ordering from ELF for some time and their shipping has gotten so much better in the last year. So Kudos to you ELF on that! Now to the brush set I am here to review. The set comes with case, Eyeshadow "C" Brush, Complexion Brush, Small Angled Brush, Small Smudge Brush, Fan Brush, Powder Brush, Angled Foundation Brush, Concealer Brush, Small Precision Brush, Blush Brush and Contouring Brush. It's a great deal for the normal price of $30 but even better for $12.
The brush set is made of synthetic hair and they really work well. The quality on this set is really nice. Easy to work with and the handles were a perfect fit in my hands. Most of my brushes are real hair but these work almost as well as my Pro set. And since I already own a few I have to say that they have held up really nice. No coming apart or hair all over the place.
So my over all review is................ These are great for everyday, anyone can use, and a great buy!

A few weeks ago I got the news that Zoya was doing this great nail polish exchange program. Of course being a polish lover, I was all over that deal. 1 week before I found out about this, I had thrown away A LOT of old polish. I felt so bad and wondered if I can recycle or just toss them in the regular garbage. I ended up tossing them in the recycle bin and then I founded out about the program and ran to my recycle bin, hoping my BF didn't toss everything out. Thank goodness he didn't and I was able to recycle my old polishes the correct way. After all the picking out the recycle bin and adding more, I had a total of 25 nail polishes to send to Zoya for exchange of nice and new nail polish.
I went on Zoya's website and chose all 25 of my new nail polishes for the exchange program. Zoya made it so difficult to choose just 25. They have such a selection of colors with shimmer, glitter, sparkles, and on and on. What I do like about their line is it's all formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) and camphor free. Thanks Zoya for this great idea and helping us keep the planet safe and clean! Details of program below.
Keep the planet a little bit greener one bottle of nail polish at a time!
*For a limited time, kicking off on Earth Day (April 22, 2010 - 12 PM EST), Zoya Nail Polish will exchange your old, out-of-style, unwanted nail color and replenish your nail polish supply with fresh Zoya fashion colors. Send in six or more bottles of old polish - any brand other than Zoya, Qtica or Nocti, new or used - and we'll send you the new Zoya colors of your choice in a bottle-for-bottle exchange.
