Lunasol Stardust On Eyes Eye Shadows Review and Shadows

With all the hype surrounding the new Urban Decay Stardust Eyeshadow I thought I’d haul out the Lunasol Stardust On Eyes Eye Shadows I got for the Holidays. I purchased them to use for Christmas and never got the chance to do a look with them. I proceeded to promise myself I’d use them for New Year’s and again set aside, because I did this crazy blue Tardis themed look, who the hell knows where my head is sometimes.

Reader’s Request: Soap and Glory One Pit Wonder Deodorant Review

On days like today I do so fear I have a teenage boy trapped inside my very chick-y body. I’ve been playing around with Soap and Glory One Pit Wonder Deodorant and the bloody thing gives me a case of the giggles everything I use it. Much like saying fart in a room full of teenage boys I simply laugh when I say the word pits or in this case read the label which says “for really peachy pits…”

I’ve no idea why but I burst out laughing when I read that. Could be I’m thinking of fuzzy under arms? Or maybe I’m remembering Julie Roberts stunt at that awards ceremony a few years ago…gawd how does one forget to shave under their arms at such an important event? I dunno…but I do admit to laughing myself into a little bit of a fit when I use this.

Easily amused? Perhaps or maybe just that teenage boy trapped inside my body.

Jump ahead to hear my review on Soap and Glory’s first ever deodorant stick.

My Beauty Diary Cooling Mask Review

Ahhh the Asian sheet mask. Not quite so popular in the US but within Japan, Korea, Etc…sheet masks are all the rage and a common part of an Asian girl’s (or guy) daily skincare regime and cheap as day old chips in most cases. I got a few requests asking if I could review some of my very favorite sheet masks from Asia so I thought I’d go ahead and get some reviews up of ones I love.

My fav of the moment, and of course all the rage with everyone, are from Beauty Diary a Taiwanese brand. My Beauty Diary Masks could prove popular because of their cute design or possibly because they have such a variety of masks to suit all skin types. Whatever the case may be they are some of my favorites at the moment.

Today I’ll be discussing the My Beauty Diary Cooling Mask.

Have a jump for the details!
