Thoughts on [Huxley] Skincare

Monday, October 30, 2017

Every once in a while I do get swept up with the idea of products and let me tell you, it was all too easy to succumb to Huxley products. The line offered up a new ingredient I've never encountered (desert cactus, fancy) and SweetCorea had a really great price on the line. I ordered four items from the Huxely Secret of Sahara lineup without thinking too much about it.

Regret, folks. I feel it.

Review: KoreanBuddy

Sunday, October 29, 2017

Good afternoon! Today's review is a little different, it's of a forwarding company. I've purchased a lot of skincare and makeup from Asia over the last few years and have my preferred methods of ordering from each country. For Japan I like Amazon JP, Sasa and eBay, for China I use Taobao (when I'm within the country, have yet to try International Taobao orders from the US). Up until now I didn't really have a great way to get everything I wanted from Korea without paying huge markup.

Mask Madness, Vol. IX: Skinfood Bitter Green Clay Soothing Mask

Sunday, October 22, 2017
My cat has modeling aspirations
It's been a few weeks since I reviewed a mask, I actually have half a dozen I want to post before this year is through, so tonight let's talk about one I consider to be a pretty big fail. Don't let the name fool you, the Skinfood Bitter Green Clay Soothing Mask is well, anything but soothing. 

50 Words or Less: More Repurchases

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

It's been a while since I wrote an installment of this series, let's take a look at some products that I enjoyed enough to repurchase!

Sleek Makeup Under A Spell Palette

Monday, October 16, 2017
 My local Ulta started carrying Sleek Makeup products a few months ago and I picked up a few things with some reward dollars. The palette I chose was one with a really interesting mix of colors, Under A Spell.

I absolutely love my Sleek i-Divine Dark Mattes Vol 2, but some of the other Sleek makeup that I've purchased has ended up given away/swapped. It's really a tossup. I think Under A Spell will be a palette that I pull out once in a blue moon, when I'm looking for a specific color to use.

Burberry Light Glow Blush in Earthy 07

Sunday, October 15, 2017

 I've made a serious dip in my Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder pan in The Contour Duo (review here) and wanted to get another contour for at home use. I like to save the lightweight KA duo for trips. What I ended up getting was the Burberry Light Glow Blush in Earthy, a light tan blush.

Shangpree Marine Energy Eye Mask

Monday, October 2, 2017

Good morning! 

Here at MakeupWithdrawal, I've blogged about quite a few masks - particularly in the last six months. A topic that doesn't come up as often, actually never, is eye care. Today's product is a cross over, small gel masks that target the eye region. The Shangpree Marine Energy Eye Mask has been a favorite in the past few months, and definitely deserves to be the first eye skincare product reviewed on the blog.

Review: Rouge Bunny Rouge Embers EdP

Sunday, October 1, 2017

One of the things I picked up in August was a new bottle of perfume during the Rouge Bunny Rouge sale. Embers was my first fragrance from the brand and I think there will be more in my future.
