urban decay naked basics

Ahhh… how much more of the “nakedness” can we take? It seems that the neutral makeup trend is not going to stop anytime soon so I might as well just run with it. I am a huge fan of Urban Decay’s Naked eye makeup range and I naturally had to pick up the Basics palette as well.

mac face and body foundation

The MAC Face and Body Foundation was something I’ve had on my to-try list for a long time but it wasn’t available in our local MAC stores until recently. I don’t usually step into a MAC store but when I saw this foundation on display, I knew I had to check it out.

into the bin

I spend so much time gushing over my product loves on this blog that I think it’s time I tell you about several items that have been complete poo to me.

Whenever I see one of these automatic cleansing brushes, I can’t help but compare it to the Clarisonic. I own a Clarisonic Mia (first gen) and have had some success with it. But I had to scale back to using it twice a week because daily Mia use proved to be a bit much on my rather sensitive skin.

The new Mary Kay Skinvigorate Cleansing Brush landed on me at the right time because my baby pink Mia finally gave out and died just a couple of days after receiving the Skinvigorate brush. Yes, it is rather ironic but I guess fortuitous that I still have a brush to continue with my deep cleansing routine.
