If you’re like me, your mornings can feel like a mad dash to get out the door on time. Makeup becomes an exercise in efficiency – throw on some moisturizer, a dusting of powder, a few coats of mascara, and GO (grabbing your fruit smoothie and tinted lip balm on your way out)…
Sound familiar? If so, allow me to share my newest discovery in my quest for a streamlined morning routine: Milani’s The Multitasker Face Powder.
UPDATE 1/17/14: From reader Terri, an article about Boots Expanding in China
I know many of us have questions about Boots No 7′s animal testing policy, so I contacted them. I asked whether ingredients or finished products are tested on animals, whether a third party conducts animal tests on Boots’ behalf, whether they sell in countries that require animal testing, and whether Boots plans to become Leaping Bunny certified or listed by PETA. They responded quickly to my questions – within 24 hours. Their response: CONTINUE READING…
Maybe it’s a throwback to my inner Crayola-loving child, but these marker-style liners like NYX Super Fat Eye Marker and NYX Super Skinny Eye Marker have always intrigued me. A product that makes getting the definition of liquid liner as easy as drawing with a marker… sounds promising, right?
If you have pigmented lips like me, you know it can be hard to find glosses that actually show up. All through high school and for the first year or two of college, I was a lip gloss fanatic. So many times I’d find a great color, but it would just look clear on my lips. NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss was one of the first glosses I ever tried with enough pigment to change my lip color.

[box]The Boots No 7 website states that they do not test on animals; they have a pool of thousands of human volunteers who test their products. Boots No 7 is a UK-based brand manufactured in the EU, where animal testing of cosmetics has been banned since March, 11 2009. However, Boots No 7 is not currently on either the Leaping Bunny or PETA do-not-test list. I will update once I have more information.
Update 11/04/12: While I’ve long believed Boots No 7 to be cruelty-free, I’ve heard claims they may not be. The bottom line: I just don’t know for sure. For that reason, I’m opting not to purchase from Boots No 7 until they become listed by the Leaping Bunny or PETA.

I first became interested in this foundation after hearing rave reviews on numerous Youtube channels, first from Ginabinawina99. It’s supposed to be high quality at Target price and has been compared to Chanel Lift Lumiere. CONTINUE READING…
I’m constantly applying lip balm throughout the day. If I don’t, I’m liable to end up with super dry, cracked and peeling lips. I drink tons of water and exfoliate regularly, but it’s just how my lips are. So, over the years I’ve tried many, many lip balms and have a handful of reliable, go-to favorites. Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil is one of them.
I’ve watched Makeup Geek on Youtube for years. Marlena’s achievements are seriously inspiring and I was really excited to try out and support the MUG line. Plus, I’d read the many raves about MUG eyeshadows, so I knew they were going to be good.
I ordered four shades – all neutrals (shocking, I know).
- Vanilla Bean: light beige with subtle shimmer
- Beaches & Cream: matte pinky-peach beige
- Peach Smoothie: matte light orange-beige
- Purely Naked: light brown with shimmer
