Philosophy: Purity made simple

I've been using this facial cleanser for a couple of weeks now and I think I am ready to share my thoughts on this product. It's starts off kind of like thick milk (I know it sounds strange, but that's how it looks like to me) So I spread emulsion all over my face and then add warm water. This cleanser doesn't really foams too much, which is different for  me, since I'm used to foaming cleansers, but it does works wonders! It dissolves makeup very quickly and my skin is super clean every time I use it, almost squeaky clean. My skin does feel little tight afterwords but not over dried.  Now for downside... Scent... I don't mind it at all, it's very hmmm grassy and essential oil like and I can see how it will turn off lots of people.  I personally would have preferred to smell more of a clean (soapy) scent, but hey, I don't mind having "aromatherapy" moment while washing my face :-)

MAC Beauty Powder - Oh So Fair

How are you dolls? Enjoying this wonderful? It's been around 74F last couple of days and breezy. I love this time of the year! weather
So this is a quick review for MAC Beauty Powder "Oh So Fair" from Venomous Villains collection.  I tested it for a couple of days in different light and even wore it to the gym to see how long the color will stay on my skin while I get hot and sweaty lol.  So here it goes. "Oh So Fair" is one of the most gorgeous shades of beauty powders that MAC ever came up with. It's so soft and gentle and texture is great. I would say it's more of a very soft pink with a hue of peach to it. I wore it as a soft blush (I am NC 25-30) and it showed up beautifully. Some beauty powders are almost invisible on my skin (Dam Edna, Hello Kitty collections) but this one seems to have more pigment. So if you girls are looking for soft daywear blush and you are more fair or medium skin tone - give this one a test. It's going to be on the counters Sept. 30th and I think that it will sell out in most locations very quick. 
With that being said, I think VV collection is starting grow on me more and more. I am still not really into the packaging and honestly mineralized shadows are nearly identical to my shadows from last year's collection "Style Black", but overall I see some interesting colors and can't wait to try "Magic" powder that is mostly water. Well I take it back, I did try it a few years ago... Raising your brow? Truth to be told that powder is same (or nearly the same) product that was sold under MAC's sister brand Prescriptives. But anyhow, I liked it back then, I am sure to love it now.

MAC Venomous Villains - My Dark Magic Mineralized Eyeshadow

I am a big fan of MAC Mineralized line and these shadows are up my alley. I love the depth of these colors, love the sparkles and the fact that with just little bit of Fix+ these  shadows turn into awesome eyeliners. If you feeling like rocking some deep fun smokey eyes - go for it! "My Dark Magic" is a great hue of purple and blueish tones with some drama and for long staying power please don't forget to use eyeshadow base. I swatched color without base and I can see the difference in application, and in not a good way. For something so chunky and glittery you have to have your primer.

Beauty on the budget: Hair Care

There have been times when I experimented on my poor hair so much. I've been black (naturally and jet black from the bottle), I've been red and color of baby chick as well as did my best copying that washed out bleach blond of Paris Hilton. If I recall correctly,  1 day I colored my hair around 5 times!!! Oh my, needless to say I had a disaster on my head.  And it was right around this time when I found VO5 Hot Oil Treatment. I heat it in a cup of hot water and leave it on my hair for about a minute or two. I am not going to copy/paste what this product clams to do for you, I just want to share my personal opinion and let me tell you something - this treatment is great! I can see and feel the difference in my hair right away, they are not as dry on the ends, more manageable and healthy looking. It's been almost 5-6 years since my crazy experiments with hair colors,  but even now, every now and then, my hand reaches out to that shelf in the store and pick up VO5 Oil Treatment.
