Nars Pencils birthday gift from Sephora

Top: Cruella
Bottom: Rikugien

I look forward to the Sephora birthday gift every year and this year was right up my alley!!!! As a professed lipstick/crayon/gloss/stain addict, I bounced my way to the local Sephora and announced that I was getting my gift. I had every intention to go in, get the gift and leave. HA! My shopping damage later left me happy but broke. So yeah, I can NOT go into Sephora for just a browse (most of the time:).

For all the August birthdays out there, Happy birthday to ya'll!!!!!

Stay cool in this heat, Sherry

Ridding the face of fuzz!

Magic Razorless Cream Shave

Ladies, I have used Nair for years! and endured the burn to rid my face of the thick fuzz that makes my makeup look wonky. Yes, I have blonde hair but it gets thick I tell ya. Last night I reached for my Nair and was out. I remembered that I was browsing the clearance endcap at my local Walgreens and saw this and thought, "why not?". It was clearenced for $1.19.

So I reached for this and thought well it's the weekend, don't have to work and have time to heal if it burns my skin. OMG, not only did it not burn, it was gentle, took 4 minutes and took ALL the fuzz off easily!!! The product is originally billed for bald heads, I have made another use out of it!!! Since, it was clearance I was worried it would be hard to find so I gooogled it when I got home. It can be found at Walmart for 4 bucks and some change and you can be sure I will be buying a backup!!

Run, grab this, it works. Do you have another favorite to rid your face of fuzz? Do tell!!!

Fuzz free blessings :), Sherry

Toms Long Lasting Natural Deodarant

I was sent this for review and to say that I was skeptical is an understatement. I am a menopausal woman and sweat normally heavily so I believe in heavy duty antiperspirants and was leery of trying a natural product. Enter a day off, 105 degrees in Texas and testing began. The fragrance is subtle, it goes on smoothly without white streaks and has a roll up tube. So far, so good. Had to run some errands in the middle of the hot Texas day and upon returning home, sniffed my underarms and was pleasantly surprised that there was no funky odor! At the end of a 12 hour day, my arms were dry, the underarm odor was pleasant and I even got my husband to sniff (along with his jokester self:). Ladies I believe I have a winner in the natural deodorant department and will possibly repurchase. If it can handle Texas heat and a menopausal woman, it's a winner!

Have you tried natural deodorants? What are your thoughts? Do tell!!!

Too Faced Melted Metallic Lip

Color: Metallic Violet

Ya'll this lippie rocks!!! Not only am I a lippie addict and I don't play by anybody's rules, I try all kinds of lippies. I bought this to see what all the metallic fuss was about (and because purple is my fav color:). So I gave it a test run and ooooohhhhhhh. It lasts, it gives just the right amount of sheen to the lips, which us older gals need to make the lips look bigger. It is a tad bit drying on me, easily remedied, tends to migrate if I don't line my lips. Overall, I may just buy more of these and play, play and play!

I have several of the original Melted lippies and love 'em. What are your thoughts ladies? Do you own these? Do tell!!!

Simple Micellar Water

I jumped on the bandwagon of micellar waters! I had a small Caudalie cleansing water and although it smells incredible, and is cooling, I wasn't impressed with its cleansing properties. When Simple came out with their micellar water I went to my local store and purchased. My main reason was to see if it cleansed waterproof mascara. (Totally have to wear waterproof in the 100 degree plus weather here).

First, it is inexpensive compared to other micellar waters and secondly Simple is a great brand. I soaked a cotton pad, cleansed my face first and was impressed with its makeup busting properties. Then I placed over my eye and let it sit for a few and yep it helped remove waterproof mascara without serious scrubbing! Winner in my book as I can't stand losing lashes when I clean and tugging on delicate eye area. I believe that I will continue to use micellar waters and especially Simple brand as they are wallet friendly and readily available!

Have you tried micellar waters? What are your thoughts? Do tell!

I'm learning to wear long wearing felt tip eyeliners!

Hard Candy Felt tip eyeliner in Oh Fudge
Kat Von D Inkliner in Woolf
Kat Von D Lightening Liner in Poe

I actually was getting the Kat Von D in purple to complement my hazel eyes and grabbed the wrong one, however; this is pretty! The Hard Candy in the beautiful brown is softer than a harsh black for my eyes and actually is very pretty on. Now I have been using Urban Decay and Pixi gel liners and love them but as a menopausal and Texas living woman they tend to migrate and my under eye circles look terrible! I was actually a bit scared to try felt tips because they tend to show every little weird line, whereas gel liners can be smudged on the top lash line. When I got Poe (the purple one) it was love at first swatch! The Woolf has just enough green gold and compliments my hazel eyes as well.

I needn't have worried as they were easy to use and stayed frickin put when I used them! I have a new love of felt tip liners. I can still learn and try new things and it feels good to step out of my comfort zone. I still haven't even tried a cat eye flick but am considering getting out of my comfort zone and learning how to do it. Seriously you can teach an old dog new tricks LOL.

Let me know your favorite felt tip liners, would love to know!

Blessings, Sherry
