Happy Almost Weekend.
Any fancy plans for your weekend? I just need some R&R so it’s going to probably be pretty low key for me. I’m having a game night on Saturday, picked up Ticket to Ride after Wil Wheaton’s ravings. It’s actually highly unusual for me to do a game night in the Summer, I typically reserve them for Fall but a good deal of my friends expressed the same interested in Ticket to Ride so we decided why wait to play it?
As for the rest of the weekend a little Batman is in order, a little shopping and dinner with friends and heck, maybe, if it rains a little vegging in front of the telly to catch up on Teen Wolf and Awkward.
I just mailed out several of the giveaway prizes so winner’s be on the look out! Your goodies are on the way. I also need to select a winner for the contest I had while I was away.
A new giveaway for today.
At a glance and a swatch Skin Food Sugar Cookie Blush is incredibly disappointing. Perhaps for a super fair skin tone but for me? No go.
I purchased it in Winter Cherry, proceeded to swatch it and was crushed that it barely showed up on my skin. I liked the color and was kinda hopeful it would prove a more pink version of Tarte Glisten but that swatch really slayed me.
Needless to say I tossed it on the side for a few days and almost didn’t bother trying it out.
Sure glad I finally reached for it!
Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Pore Penetrator might seem familiar to you. That’s because I reviewed Dr. Jart All Out Black Head Remover a year or two ago.
Kinda the same concept here.
I’m willing to try ANYTHING to get the stubborn blackheads to stop vacationing on the tip of my nose. Nothing works. Nose strips, gels, treatments…short of burning them off or removing my nose, I think they are here to stay.
Let’s see if the Dr. Jart Black Label Detox Pore Penetrator did the trick!
Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.
Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.
One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.
Let’s take a peek at this!
I’m quite eager to get to the review.
Pantene Aqua Light Weightless Conditioning Shake is a new leave in conditioner mist for hair I recently picked up.
Anyone try this yet?
I typically don’t review hair care products on here because well, I think they are boring as sin. If hair is your bag, brilliant! As for me, I’m all about other beauty products just not hair care…
Are you a hair junkie?
My best friend Jamie hoards and stockpiles an obscene amount of shampoo, mists, sprays, potions, etc…etc…it boggles my mind. But hey, I bet she thinks I’m quite the freak for having 100’s of lipglosses right?
We all have our vices.
I did want something to keep my locks soft and hydrated so I decided to check this out on her rec.
Let’s take a look!
