Oh Sue Devitt, why hast thou forsaken me?

I'm so disappointed that I wanna cry. I have really liked everything that I've ever tried from Sue Devitt (her big chunky eyeliners thrill me to pieces), so I had SUCH high expectations for the Naughty Palette. I realize that often high expectation lead to plunging depths of despair, but even swatching the colors on my arm led me to believe that my hopes were not in vain. 

The palette consists of 2 shadows- One a sparkly silver grey and one an icy pearl- and 2 lip glosses- one a super glittery magenta and one a super glittery pink. 
Unfortunately, despite how sparkly it looked swatched, it for some reason did not transfer upon actual application. My eyes looked sunken and there was a ton of fallout, and the lip gloss didn't look the slightest bit glittery upon application. What happened? I used both lip and eye primer so both should have performed at the top of their game. Is it unreasonable for me to almost want to cry with disappointment? I specifically purchased this palette for what appeared to be super duper sparkliness. 


Jenulence Sale About To End

I've previously reviewed Jenulence products before, so I have no problem saying this is a good time to check them out!
Jenulence Alkanet Root DMAE Lip Balm  
 This falls under "product I am going to marry and have babies with". Seriously, this balm is amazing. A light color is added to your lips without looking like you have anything on them- as if you have naturally lush rosy lips. This really reminds me of Lipstick Queen Medieval without the $20 price tag. You get a beestung look and the balm absorbs into the lips instead of just sitting on top in a waxy tectonic plate. It doesn't wear away like so many balms and glosses do because of the excellent absorption and moisturization and one application lasts a good long time. I could see this being boffo with the metrosexuals. 
The company line:
Alkanet Root DMAE Lip Balm is a non-mineral, pure botanical and moisturizing balm. It gives the lips a natural transparent red tint from the alkanet root. There is no iron oxide, titanium dioxide or mica, just pure botanical oils and plant extract. This lip balm is an emollient, soothing and nourishing everyday treatment for dry, chapped or cracked lips. It leaves the lips nourished and supple. Oils and vitamins in this formula are known to have antioxidants and regenerative properties. We added DMAE to this formula, which is famous for making lips fuller and gives them a more youthful look.
Ingredients: Camellia seed oil, apricot kernel oil, Aloe Vera oil, beeswax, alkanet root, seabuckthorn berry oil, vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol), DMAE, rose essential oil.

Episencial's Natural Sunny Sunscreen Giveaway

I had never really put a lot of thought into the extreme amount of chemicals in your typical sunscreen, but I have been becoming more and more aware of how these things are piling harsh chemicals onto my skin. While I will use up what I already have on hand, any new sunscreens I buy I want to be natural. Now when it comes to protecting the kiddos skins, I can't imagine wanting to glop unpronouncable chemicals on them whe there's natural choices available.

Well Episencial has the most darling natural skincare products around for kids. They're inspired by the award winning children's illustrator Eric Carle, which makes my librarian heart go pitter patter, and I'll be honest- I use stuff made for kids all the time. Shocking, I know. They use recycled and sustainable materials – phthalate and BpA free and Episencial 's manufacturing is all done under solar power . Cool, huh?
Right now, you can enter to win their sunscreen for free! Just go HERE

I've Got To Come Clean

 As much as we hate to admit it, if you don't keep your face clean it doesn't matter how many $150 moisturizers you apply or how perfect your skin has the potential to be. We all do it. Fall asleep with the makeup on, do a half a**ed job of washing up, wake up with Rocky raccoon eyes from not properly removing eye makeup. It's a pain, but I really do try to force myself to take the extra five minutes to do it right. Some things make it easier than others, and some things make it a breeze. 

I love to play with my eyes, so in general I need to use an eye makeup remover before anything else. If I try to wash my face first, I wind up with eye makeup streaked all over my face. 

Well, if you're an eye diva don't expect to get too much help from Mary Kay "Gel" Eye Makeup Remover (the greezy kind in the tube.) It's a gel and I'm Madonna. It's a thick gloppy grease- Vaseline run through a 59 Chevy. It flat out won't remove Lancome mascaras- I had to rely on my actual plain 'ol face wash to get the rest of that. You have to tug and pull on your delicate eye skin and lashes to use it and it leaves a thick petroleum like film all over your eyes making them feel cloudy and heavy. I've gotten it in my eyes before and felt like I had cataracts. not a good quality in something MADE for your eyes. 

Now if you want something that works and WELL, go for Lancome Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Makeup Remover. 
This stuff is da bomb. Worth it's weight in gold and a major time saver since a few good swipes and you're done and clean as a whistle.   It removes waterproof mascara, glitter liner, heavily applied smoky eyes- you name it, no problem. If I've used a heavy hand that day, I'll use a separate cotton pad for each eye and give a final swipe to see clean pad and know I got everything. It glides away your makeup and dirt leaving your eye area feeling soft with no tugging or pulling. This is my go to eye makeup remover. "• A bi-phase liquid eye makeup remover. The lipid phase lifts off eyemakeup; the water phase contains special emolients to refresh and condition skin without a greasy residue"    

Then you have to get down to the business of cleaning your skin. I have been doing a comparison over the last month of three different face cleaners. So how did they stack up? Well, two of them are the same big counter brand and one is an all natural choice. 

Estee Lauder Take It Away Total Makeup Remover really does 'take it away' and using a toner afterwards never seems to reveal anything left behind. I MUST use a toner afterwards to balance out my skin PH though or it's super drying. It works excellent at removing makeup, but the skin does feel stripped. I do love this stuff for getting off warpaint but I don't like to use this everyday. 
Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean Splash Away Foaming Cleanser is my go to for when I'm in a hurry and just want to clean up as quick as possible. It works especially well for those days when you're not wearing makeup or have on mineral makeup, it's not as effective at cleaning if you have on long wear makeup unless you use a washcloth, which negates the whole point of being splash away. Now if you do use a cloth, it'll get you squeaky clean, but I like that I can just splash some water on my face and be done. it rinses off extremely easily and doesn't leave a residue. This is also a favorite for starting my skin out in the morning to get off my sleep funk.
The natural option has been the award winning Philosophy Purity Made Simple. Not only is it the natural option, but it's also an effective cleanser that removes makeup AND dirt completely, leaving the skin feeling clean but still balanced. 
Philosophy maintains that this formula was created to eliminate the need for a toner, but if I have the time or energy, I will still use one simply to ensure that I've gotten all my face funk. I absolutely LOVE the clean herby smell which is quite relaxing. My travel sized bottle of this was my mainstay over the Christmas holidays as we roamed the state trying to cram in four families. Texas is a VERY big state, and we covered warm and humid, wet and cold, and dry and windy. We spent many many hours in the car and through it all, this cleanser kept my skin happy and healthy and worked well no matter the enviromental circumstances. 
My toner of choice the last few months has been Lancome Tonique Pure Focus Oil Control Mattifying Toner. This one is especially great in the summer to keep the skin looking fresh. It's made to tighten the pores and gives my makeup a smooth canvas. I feel like it's given my skin a radiant clarity. It also has a delightful light rose scent that gives it a truly luxurious feel. I would not recommend this for exceedingly dry skin, but it's great for oily or combination skin.
"This refreshing, skin-purifying toner helps oil and shine disappear for fresh, pure, matte skin. Honeycomb-shaped micro-captors absorb oil deep down in the pores. Zinc Gluconate limits the visible effects of excess sebum while salicylic acid unclogs pores. Skin is transformed, pure and lastingly matte. Pores are tightened and refined. Skin is touchably soft. Use twice daily after cleansing. "

My March Pretty Pink Box

March's box is sold out, but this is what I received (the next box goes on sale April 8th and you can sign up for updates and reminders.) 

I have raved before about Lip Delivery Nutrition by Intelligent Nutrients, so I was delighted to receive a new tube of it! Here's what I said before:

Intelligent Nutrients Certified Organic 100% Nontoxic Plant Chemistry Lip Delivery Nutrition (whew! say all that in one breath!). Not waxy and with penetrating moisture. I always like it when I can trust a lip product to be safe since I know I'll wind up eating 5 pounds of it. It has a slight tingly feel reminiscent of Carmex. I keep a tube of this next to the bed for my nightly balm needs. I will never buy a tube of Chapstick again. 
WHOA! I didn't know THIS- I just thought it was an awesome lip balm! According to the company:

"Product Description


Think about it—we ingest our lip products every time we lick our lips. One of the fastest ways we absorb substances into our blood is through sublingual assimilation. It only makes sense that we formulate all lip products with nutrition, rather than harmful synthetic ingredients, petrolatum, mineral oil or lead.
Our super-antioxidant Intellimune® Seed Oil Complex—an anti-aging, synergistic blend of black cumin, pumpkin, red grape, red raspberry and cranberry seed oils—comprises 20% of the total composition of our lip balm. The other nutritious food ingredients  are coconut, sunflower seed, castor seed and palm kernel oils. Lip Delivery Nutrition® — providing nutrition and antioxidants both externally and internally every time you lick your lips."

WOW, now I love it even more. SWEET.  

There is a sample jar of Big Girl Cosmetics Diva Gloss in Bling Diva. Per their site
"Diva Gloss for the Diva in You! When only the best will pass the test. We've paired high shine and great shades to create the ultimate lip gloss. This is the ultra-brilliant formula that delivers transparent shine, sensuous shimmer, and sumptuous shades. Super-easy to apply in its very own applicator tube. Just gloss and go. All colors provide a hint of color with long-lasting, non-stick shine!  " I haven't used it yet, but I love the smell and I think it's a great sparkly shade. They are theoretically a brand for women of color, but my albino booty thinks it looks delightful anyway! They have the Diva Gloss line currently on sale at Big Girl Cosmetics

A full sized mark. Brand Making Eyes Shadow Duo in Got The Blues. 
 These are currently on sale at 33% off HERE and there's currently a special offer available for free shipping with a $25 purchase using the code MARKSF25.
 Upon application I wasn't sure what I thought of it. At first the blue seemed too 'solid' and hard edged. As soon as I blended it though, it took on a softer blur, and after putting on the silverygrey and blending them together at the edges it was transformed.I went from not particularly caring for it to loving it in a few short minutes. Not for the meek, this is really well suited to a more glam evening look. 

From Myfaceworks there were 2 disposable paper face masks. They are individually wrapped and you open them up and put them on your face for 15-20 minutes. I have to admit that after applying my mask, I was so amused by how funny it looked that I laughed to the point of now having a sore throat. The husband said that the sight of my hysterically cackling with this on my face gave him the uber-creeps and when I held up a mirror to see for  myself, it made me laugh even harder! We're broke this week, we have to get our kicks however we can :-) So despite looking like the daughter in Franju's Eyes Without A Face I was able to relax and enjoy once the hysteria wore off. I got 2 masks, one I Need To Heal mask (which is what I used today) and one I Need A Quickie mask. It felt extremely cool and refreshing upon application and it felt like I was letting my skin take a nap. I decided to leave it on longer than 15-20 minutes, I left it for about 30 minutes. It was so moisturizing and refreshing that it seemed safe to do. most masks leave the skin tight, but this left it feeling soft and nourished. Afterwards I applied my Veda Sun Calendula & Rosehip serum and my face feels like it got it's own individual 8 hours of sleep.

So Kiss Me

The first thing before glopping some gloop on your kisser is to make sure your lips don't have scraggly flakes and peels to make you look like you have leprosy of the mouth. For that purpose, I love using Laura Geller Lip Strip Cooling Sugar Scrub, which is a sweet and cooling lip scrub that removes dead and chapped skin while also being soothing and hydrating. It tastes great, is quick and easy to use, and a little goes a long way. I have a this one jar that I've been using for months and I can tell I'll be able to get many many months more out of it. 

I've got some sadness going on. I have discovered that Estee Lauder's Pure Crystal Color gloss has been discontinued. Bite me, Estee! I love the shade called Burgundy 115 for it's gorgeous orangey brown that is quite pigmented for a gloss, stays on, and has a nice light sparkle to it. You can still find it in a few places online, and there's a lot of Ebay sellers that still have new tubes of it, so I guess it's still available, just that when it's gone, it's gone. Poo. 
I did find THIS WEBSITE   
that has it for $6.00, which is actually pretty darn cheap in light of it's original $20 price tag....

Wet n Wild Wild Shine in Honey Shine  is a great peachy nude that with a nude lipliner gives a sortof glossy modern Bardot look. Alone it is more useful as a gloss and you definitely want to play it up with some smoky eyes so you don't look washed out (though I would think on someone with dark skin this would look gorgeous all by itself.) With the smoky eye and the lipliner, some pulled back or up hair- well you're smokin'! I was surprised to discover that at least this particular line of Wet N Wild gets good grades for health and enviromental impact according to . It's your good 'ol drugstore fall back, but can't be beat for the price. 

So while I'm sending folks on wild goose chases, I also love the discontinued Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Innocence. It's a Barbie pink that gives you a lovely Kewpie doll mouth with more pigment than your average gloss, but not so much that the baby pink looks garish. This is another one of those that with some subtle liner gives the 'Bardot Effect'. Looks particularly good with dark purple clothing and some smudgy purple eyes and it has enough of a cool blue undertone to make the teeth look whiter. Gosh darn it Estee! What do we have to do to keep up? As is the case with most discontinued shades, you can generally find a plethora of them on Ebay for the time being. If pinks are your bag- search this one out!

 So how's about I quit presenting frustratingly difficult to locate items and round this out with two of my lovely loves that are abundantly available? (Heck, if you wanna take advantage of that free Skincare Rx Cache, they carry the Korres line so you could use these to get to the $100 mark!) Yep. Guess what? I STILL love Korres. All natural, well made, incredibly astounding products. 

The Wild Rose Lip Butter gives lips a dee-lovely beestung pout and tint and makes people want to smack you! Not ow, pow smack but pucker up and smoochie smack ;-) It comes in a tub a bit larger than a Carmex tub, and will last you for eons. It melts right into the skin and provides long lasting moisture- great for chapped lips and a heck of a lot sexier than Carmex! Just don't loan it to your man unless he's into that sort of thing, cause it's quite tinted and leaves a rosy stain on the lips. $10 MAY SEEM LIKE A LOT FOR A BALM, BUT SERIOUSLY, THIS WILL LAST YOU EONS.

I also love me some Korres High Shine Cherry Lipgloss. It's got good pigment and is super duper glossy. It doesn't feel gunky, which is pretty unusual for something this high shine, and it smells like cherry candy! Seriously, I actually like to pull the applicator out of the tube just to sniff it. It reminds me of a cherry Jolly Rancher. Bonne Bell eat your heart out.
