FOTD: NARSissist eyeshadow palette in the field

AffilierAchet茅

At long last, I have a look for you with the NARSissist eyeshadow palette, as promised. Though I have been featuring other products, I am getting a decent amount of use out of this. It was pricey, but I think it was a good investment. (There are just so many freaking palettes out there these days, with new ones released every week. It can make your head spin.)

Shani Asks You Sundays – Travel Beauty

I am clearly already suffering from vacation brain (sorry to the people at work!), so today’s question is all about going away.

How do you choose which beauty products to bring with you? Do you pare down? Or do you wind up with too much?

Personally, I always wind up with way too much. I mean, WAY too much. It’s usually because I’m overwhelmed and can’t make decisions as to, “You will only be able to wear these 10 things,” 聽because I never know what I’ll be in the mood for, even when I try and plan around outfits.

This time, I have a new travel cosmetics case and, ideally, I’d like to only take what fits in there. Ideally. (Normally I wind up with 3 or 4 packed to the brim smaller cases. So, wish me luck!!)

Tips for Shopping Overseas

Shopping overseas It will surprise no one that I like to shop. Or that I like to travel. Or that I like to shop while I’m traveling. Since I’m heading off to France (I know, again) in a week and a half, I thought I would write up a guide with everything I’ve learned about shopping overseas.

Haul: The search for THE Lanc么me lipstick

AffilierAchet茅

Lanc么me lipstick I know this may come as a shock to some of you, but I can be a bit obsessive when it comes to lipstick鈥攅specially when it comes to finding the right shade of lipstick. Which is how I wound up the owner of, count them, FOUR different Lanc么me lipsticks, in the two-monthlong search for a specific one.

Shani Asks You Sundays – Big Changes and 200 Posts!

Welcome to my 200th post! Funny how these milestones seem to keep happening on Sundays.

Anyway, last week 2 things happened. The first is that I had my last day at my job, and I start my new one tomorrow. (Wish me luck!)

The other is that I went for a haircut, asked for 2 inches off, since I knew my ends were still really damaged, and when all was said and done, she had taken off 6 inches. Or so. I’m still not recovered from the trauma. My long, long hair is no more. I actually choke up every time I see someone with very long hair. I’m not even joking.

(My least favorite placation is, “It’ll grow back” followed very closely by, “She didn’t cut off THAT much” [she DID], followed by, “It doesn’t look that short.” So don’t even try. I’m not saying it’s not a good cut, but that’s half a year’s growth, so it’s not JUST going to grow back any time soon. My hair hasn’t been this short in years My one friend who understood said, “It’s the first shower that’s the worst,” and it was. I almost cried. I just hate it when they take that control away from you.)

I have some OOTD posts that I’ve been saving up since I lost my photographers when I left my job, so you’ll probably see shots of my old hair interspersed with my new hair. (Then tell me it’s not that much shorter!)

So, on to this week’s question:

What big changes are going on in your life right now?

Review: Innarah Skin Care

Gratuit
Innarah Skin Care Update 4/9/14: Innarah amazingly sent me full-sized versions of the other items, so I updated the photos. They also sent a product I hadn’t tried before, so I’ll review that separately.

When last we talked about my skin, it was in excellent condition. I must have jinxed it, because shortly after writing that, I started to notice weird, bumpy pimples springing out on my upper cheeks. And a field of zits broke out on my chin and refused to go away (and they weren鈥檛 even hormonally induced!). So when someone from Innarah skin care reached out to me about trying some of their products, I knew that I had nothing to lose! (Even though I just keep thinking of Inara!!)

I know that it was just a fluke of proximity, but I received the products the day after they were mailed out. That鈥檚 unheard of. And inclined me to feel favorably towards them. BUT, would they live up to these favorable feels?
