One Note: Donna Michelle Color Changing Nail Strips

So far I don’t think we have found anything from the Donna Michelle brand that actually works well at the Dollar Tree, but we keep trying and since I like all things nail related it seems, when my husband saw the nail art stickers he picked up a couple, the one shown below and a second one I haven’t had the heart to try yet that has flowers on it.

One Note: Revlon Nail Art Neon in 120 Light Neon

This is a One Note because I am pretty sure this is going to be removed shortly from my nails and is being posted more to remind me to tell my husband not to bother buying any more of the duel-ended nail polishes from Revlon because they have been more miss than hits for me. Granted this one is kind of old, but it is also the first time I used it, although it does kind of look like maybe it had been opened in the store before he bought it because the yellow end was half empty or more. But either way, it is very gloppy and not nice.

Samples: The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Primer

I received three of these packets from a Body Shop and tried it shortly afterwards. I was really excited to try these out because I use the Tea Tree Oil line for my facial wash and thought this would be a no brainer because I love the facial wash.

First the claim on the packet:

Samples: L’Oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur

This was a sample that came in a magazine so it is entirely possible that the way it worked for me is different from how it would be if it had been in the proper container.

First, what the card claimed:


The 30 Second Miracle

Try it to believe it

Directions: Apply Miracle Blur in the palm of hand to see instant results

Empties: Makeup I Have Used Up: 04-19-2014

Sheer Cover Mineral Foundation in Buff

It has been a while since I managed to use up a makeup product and I forgot how exciting that can be to be within the last two uses of something and then to finally use it up. Then again, I probably still had two uses worth of it today, but I just wanted it done and to move on to the next thing to use up that I went really heavy handed with and I am probably currently several shades darker than I would be normally.

Holiday Nails: Easter 2014

So this year I decided to go for a less is more approach and discovered something in my collection of nail polishes that I didn't realize worked the way it did.

Review: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in 102 Brownish Black

So the first Mascara review will be of Maybelline Great Lash in 102 Brownish Black.  This is an older mascara as far as how long it has been around, but it is also one of the first mascara's I purchased so I need to use it up before I start using the newer ones that have been purchased.

Mascara:    Maybelline Great Lash Mascara - Brownish Black
