Sick again…epically!

So I took a trip to the local emergency room and found out I have gallstones in my gallbladder, so it has to come out very very soon.

Wonderful news! But at least I know what it is and is not in dire need to kill me.

Until the next time I post!

Cleansing Oils

Cleansing Oils

With Dermalogica precleanse

This item is a deep cleansing oil that is used before washing your face on dry skin, to remove waterproof and stubborn makeup on your skin. It is an oil with apricot oil, rice bran oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, orange oil and grapefruit oils that is put on dry skin, then you add water to make a milky makeup remover. It hydrates and balances out your skin while taking off makeup.

Recently a lot of oil cleansers/ balm cleansers have come out and people are loving the results from these products, mainly for the hydrating and non rubbing (so no wrinkles) to get the makeup off. It even works on oily acne prone skin.

The Dermalogica cleansing oil is 38.00$ for a full size and 10.00$ for a travel size, which is the size I got in a beauty box a bit ago. since trying this product i’m open to trying other cleansing oils and more from the dermalogica line.

This is kind of an obsession of mine right now because my skin is drier in the fall/winter. Cleanse away!


My simple fall makeup look

It is fall here and I have a simple makeup look to share with you guys and it involves some new products I got recently.

(Sorry I look kinda creepy! it makes my eyes bigger with the liner on top.)

The products used:
~Rimmel Scandaleyes micro liquid liner~
~Rimmel Lash Accelerator endless Mascara~
~Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in nude eclipse~

I just do a thin line of liquid liner on my top lash line, add mascara and put on the nude lip lacquer. Very easy and simple. I’m getting better at liquid liner thanks to this micro liner.

Have a great fall,

Mindy Kaling’s “is everyone hanging out without me?” Book


I got this book from Birchbox to read as a august book club with other birch bloggers. Mindy Kaling is an actress that has her own t.v. show and is now an author. She is very funny and I love her humor.  This book is a mix of a chick literature book, an autobiography, a humor book, and fashion advice. It is a great read, and you can read it in an hour or two if you need something to do for a few hours while traveling, a summer beach read, or if you are bored and want to be entertained. I read this while I was sick with strep throat, and it kept me entertained and brought me joy and laughter on a crappy day.

I recommend this to anyone who wants to know more about Mindy, wants to read a new book, is bored and needs something to do, or if you need laughter. It is 14.00$ and can be found at threeriverspress or at barnes and noble.

Thanks birchbox for the great read!


My Influenster Prize pack from Rimmel London US

Rimmel Prize Pack From Influenster

I won the brand challenge for Rimmel London in a recent influenster box I got. I got this prize pack full of Rimmel products. I’m excited to try new liners, mascara and lip products.

I got :

[ Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in 003 Extreme Black]

DSCN0481 DSCN0485

┬áThis is a mascara that has a rubber brush that is meant to grab every lash and coat it with the mascara formula and get out the clumps. This formula is a fiber mascara, that is said to be micro fibers in the mascara to lengthen lashes. The mascara formula also is claimed to have a lash growth complex in it for longer and lusher lashes after use for 30 days. It is a very black formula, and it is a wetter formula of mascara. I’m trying this out now, and I like it so far as an everyday mascara.

[Rimmel scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner]

DSCN0480 DSCN0486
This eyeliner is a liquid eyeliner in a pen form with a teeny tiny, ulta fine pen tip. it is said to be waterproof and to last up to 24 hrs. With this liner you can make super fine lines on your upper or lower lash line, or you can make it thicker by adding more at a time to get a bolder cat eye look. I really like thinner eyeliner on my upper lash line. This is very easy to use and apply and I think I’m in love! Lets see if it lasts and doesn’t flake like other eyeliner like this.

[Rimmel scandaleyes Thick and Thin Eyeliner]

This liquid eyeliner has a two way tip that held one way can give a thin line, and another way can produce a thicker line for a more bolder eye look. It has a chisel pen like tip like the sharpies with a chisel tip. It also is claimed to be waterproof for 24 hrs. and it’s smudge proof and sweat proof. We will see when I test this out soon. It looks awesome though.

[Rimmel Show off Lip lacquer in 600 Nude Eclipse]

This lip lacquer is a lipstick and gloss in one product. It is very highly pigmented and is very glossy. The formula is sort of sticky because it is meant to stay on the lips for a good while, and deliver high impact color on your lips. I really Love this color, it is nude and more beige then pink nude. I’m Into nudes lately. It has a slight smell of something sweet, and has a unique doe foot tip with a hole in it to pick up the gloss and equally apply it into the lips.

[Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer in 400 Big Bang]

This is a lip lacquer in a very bold red shade. It is perfect for people who want a statement lip during the fall, or during the holidays. It is slightly sticky to adhere to the lips for a good while, and to deliver bold color and gloss on the lips. The smell is sweet and the doe foot is unique with a hole to gather up the product and apply it nicely. I really like the applicator, I think it is genius! I will be wearing this maybe for the holidays. I’ll try it soon.

Here are swatches of both the lip lacquers

That is what I got from Rimmel London US as a prize pack. I also won another brand challenge from kiss and will be receiving a prize pack from them, hopefully soon.

Stay tuned for more beauty goodness folks,
