Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub Review

Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub

Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub is a gentle daily exfoliator to help slough away dead skin cells and restore skin’s natural radiance.

It’s formulated with Lemon Balm to calm and repair damaged skin and Grapefruit, which naturally evens skin tone.

I’ve been using it daily for the past two weeks and loving it!


the Muse Loves Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

I spent the weekend at my friend’s place last week and he only had Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Shine Shampoo & Conditioner in his shower. I did have a minor panic attack about forgetting my own Lush haircare and really didn’t want to use these products on my hair for fear they’d create some major build up.

But I’m convert.

LOVES ’em!

You need to try!


Hard Candy Poppin Pigments Review & Swatches

Hard Candy Poppin Pigments

Hard Candy has a new collection of Poppin Pigment vials that launched for Spring. Like I freaking need more pigments. At one time in my makeup life I had to have every SINGLE shade of MAC Pigment every made. I have a drawer completely dedicated to them. This is why I avoid…ABSOLUTELY avoid mineral makeup. Because I cannot control myself when it comes to loose pigments in an array of gorgeous colors.

I see them on Etsy, I browse Meow Cosmetics, and all those other E-tailers and suddenly I go into WANT mode. Want mode is kinda like a rabid animal. Foaming mouth, wild hair, bugging eyes, and a credit card. It’s so bloody dangerous! People could get hurt!

Reader’s always ask me, “Hey, why don’t you cover indie makeup brands and minerals?” Because I HAVE NO CONTROL. I’d be broke trying to collect all the shades these people put out. And forget about the fact they do collections as often as MAC does. Someone HOLD ME I’m starting to get twitchy.

However, I do have some room in my stash for Hard Candy Poppin Pigments and thankfully they have irritating packaging so I’m not inclined to go traipsing through the Walmart aisles pushing people aside so I can grab all eight shades.
