February Favorites

Here’s a quick Favorites Blog.

Some products that I just so happy that I found.

Without further ado……..


Jesse’s Girl Eyeliner.  It’s not a felt tip. It’s a brush. I love this stuff. It’s black and precise. Long lasting. Smooth. Good for a beginner and more experienced peeps. You can easily vary the line thickness. I’ve heard this is a dupe for Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner. The difference is about $12.00. This liner is about $7.00 and I’m sure you can find an online coupon. I bought mine online.

Website Blurb:

Our unique Japanese calligraphy-style brush allows for precise, super-fine application that lets you create lines as small as one millimeter thickness! Combined with a formula that dries super-quick for a smudge-proof application, our liquid eyeliner glides on smoothly without tugging or pulling.


e.l.f. Volumizing & Defining Mascara-  A wonderful everyday mascara. At first I didn’t love it, but after it dried out a wee bit…. it’s a totally different story.  As you can tell there’s no writing on the tube! It’s traveled with me a few times and has rubbed off. It’s not a clumpy, crumbly mascara, not is it so wet that it doesn’t seem to dry. You can have it look very natural and build it up for a more of a dramatic look. What will surprise you, is that it’s TWO DOLLARS (Better Off Dead, anyone?)!!! e.l.f. has sales going on a lot. Next time you get stuff, pick one of these up. I love e.lf.! I might have bought oodles during their President’s Day Sale. (Hrmmm, would you like to read a Haul Blog?)

Here’s what they say on their site:

This mascara creates voluptuous lashes that are full and defined. The vitamin B&E enriched formula conditions lashes, and the silicone brush effortlessly combs through lashes, coating them evenly for a rich finish.


Marc Anothny’s Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Hairspray.  Okay, I’m a Child of 90’s Mall Hair. I think the pictures from my high school yearbook are flammable. Seriously, HOLY HAIRSPRAY, BATMAN! For years, I’ve avoided hairspray, except for special occasions. A couple months ago, I received this in my Ipsy Bag. Gave it the ol’ college try. I loved it. Makes my hair SHINE! Don’t be fooled be it’s softness.. it holds. Helps with volume. If you love the CRUNCH, this is not for you. Oh.. the smell! Wrongish (here on WordPress!) and I had been trying to figure out the smell. The Boyfriend called it… PLUMS! So pretty. The big can is about $8.00, there still might be a coupon left on coupons.com for several dollars off.

Here’s what they say on their website:

The non-water based, fast drying formula creates volume and hold without stickiness or flaking and its flexible finish creates workable styles for easy re-styling without crunch or heavy build-up. It creates a luminous finish and shields against humidity for longer lasting styles. Sun Protectors keep the sun and other elements from damaging your full bodied mane. When you buy Argan Oil products for your hair you’re getting one of the best natural resources for healthy looking hair. What more could you want from a hairspray!


Honey. Yes, honey. Why honey? Blackheads. EWWWWW, right? Most of us have them. We all want them to go away. This is how I get mine to hit the road. Take a little on your fingers and start pouncing them on where you have them. Do this tacky pulling motion for 5-10 minutes over the sink while you are wearing an old short. You may have to do this a few time before they are all gone. It works. The honey that works most efficiently is the unprocessed stuff. The best I’ve used is from someone had their own hive.  (this honey is from New Mexico, it’s almost gone! *sadface*)

Let me know if you have any questions.

Stay Awesome!



Rocktober Favorites


So Zeptember totally got away from me.. It just means that Rocktober’s Favorites get to happen a little early! Awwww yeah! \mm/

Let’s light this candle….


Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask- This stuff! I first heard about it from Kathleen Lights on YouTube. It’s pretty dang amazing. It can be mixed with water or apple cider vinegar. I mix it with ACV, slather it all over my face and then watch some Hart of Dixie, Australia’s Next Top Model or some SuperNatural…. It can take a bit to dry, but that’s a-okay! When they says it makes you face pulsate… they ain’t kidding. Very strange sensation, but I kinda dig it. Don’t be alarmed when you take it off and your face is the shade of a tomato.. this will calm down after a couple few minutes. After using this my face GLOWS! I might like it even more than GlamGlow YouthMud. What shocked me was the price. It’s less than $5 for A POUND!

Here’s the blurb:

Mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water.  Use a non-metal bowl and utensil.  Stir the mixture into a smooth paste.  Add more clay or liquid as needed.  Apply 1/4 in. to 1/2  to the face or other area.  Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin and 15-20 min for normal skin.  You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation.  Feel Your Face Pulsate!  Remove clay by washing with warm water.  Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 minutes.  Removes impurities and dirt from the pores. 

I got mine at VitaCost. Their shipping prices are amazing! Here’s what they say, “Within the contiguous U.S., FREE standard shipping is available for orders of $49 or more, while orders under $49 ship for a flat rate of $4.99. And you only need to spend $25 on Vitacost brand products and these select brands to qualify for FREE standard shipping.” Oh, and if you order before 1pm, it could arrive the next day (depending where you live)!


Real Techniques Make up Brush- I started watching the sisters of PixiWoo on YouTube about a year or so ago. They are just amazing. When I found out they had their own brushes, I hightailed it to Ulta. I first picked up the smaller orange one in the picture, the Expert Face Brush. I use it for all kinds of foundation and concealer. The pink one is the Blush Brush. I’ve used it for blush, bronzer and subtle contouring. The big orange one is the Powder Brush. I use it with the Verona Mattifying Powder from my August’s Favorites and Mineral Veils. I also have the kit with the eye brushes. These brushes are my favorite brushes. They are soft, easy to clean, easy to hold and apply makeup flawlessly. Also, they are pretty easy on the wallet. So go grab your Ulta coupons and try them out!


TStudio Pearl Ceramic Professional Styling Wand– This was suggested to me by The Boyfriend’s sister. I’m so glad I listened. My hair is notoriously hard to curl. It curls and then 5 minutes later it’s straight again. With these I can wake up the next morning and still have waves! You can selected your heat setting up to 410 degrees. The auto-shutoff helps cure that awful feeling of DID I TURN OFF THE CURLING IRON? MY HOUSE IS GONNA BURN DOWN!! I also like the tapered-ness of the wand, the curls are a bit more natural looking. I have both the ½” to 1” and the 1” to 1½” … a girl’s gotta have options. First few times I used the glove. Now I don’t, I can get a better feel for grasping the end of the hair. I won’t lied, I did burn my thumb once. I burned myself once, and then I learned… HOT! 🙂 Not a bad price on these either. You can find them at Target and all over the web…


Gel Polish Removal Clamps- I got these on eBay. Such a time saver. Put acetone on a piece of cotton land and clamp…. wait. No trying to fiddle with tin foil. You also get a better saturation on the actual nail with these. Also, they are great for removing glitter polishes.


Simply Balanced Greek Yogurt– You can find these little tubs of tastiness at Target. They come in several flavors. Black cherry is my favorite with Blueberry a close second. Cheaper than most yogurt cups at 87 cents.. and with your Target Red Card they are 83 cents! If you love yogurt like me, you have to try them!

There you go.. my Rocktober Favorites! What are some of yours?

Be Awesome!
