Drawn to Maybelline Color Strike Cream-to-Powder Shadow Pens


There’s no thrust device in these brand new $7 Maybelline Color Strike Cream-to-Shadow Pens, and aside from their cylindrical packaging, they aren’t very much like pens at all… whenever one twist them available, there’s a sponge tip indoors, which is essentially a fairly traditional preloaded eye shadow applicator. In reality, there isn’t a felt tip or a ballpoint pen applicator or a thrust device everywhere in sight. 


Semantics, schemantics. 

These cream shadows are fantastic for a single, purposefully messy sweep of color on the lids because theyrsquo;re only pretty sterile, so that theyrsquo;re perfect for washes of quick, easy colour.

 
The formulation is on the thinner side, however I wouldn’t predict it watery. It feels just like someone melted a MAC Paint Pot and thinned it out a little. It’so slick and glossy when it moves across your skin, and it may take some time to place, so you’ve an excellent 10-fifteen minutes to blend.

 
I would caution against using too many “pens” (“air quotes”-RRB- on your own eyes at one sitting, however, because there appears to be a tipping point and too much shadow results in the colors mushing into a muddy mess. 
In addition, I discover the applicator a struggle to utilize and, even with the pointed sponge suggestion, the shadow always ends up a tiny bit away …that makes these difficult to utilize for layered looks with multiple placements. 

Nevertheless, the cost is right, however ($7 MSRP). Theyrsquo;re less than $10 each! And the wear time is fantastic. They last all day long on my eyelids with hardly a sign of creasing, and that’s without utilizing any primer with them. 
In the event that you’re a fan of one-and-done eye make-up, I think they’re terrific. Just remember to adhere to single shadow looks, Okay? 


I would suggest starting with Flare, the matte cool-toned taupe. It’s the one that I wear the most, and it’s a neutral every day shadow color much like MAC Groundwork Paint Pot but more gray.

Product Spotlight: Pantene Miracle Moisture Boost Shampoo and Conditioner With Rosewater 


A number of my drugstore hair loves 


I absolutely love this stuff! In the event that you’re searching for a budget-friendly, moisturizing conditioner and shampoo for smoothing hair that is wavy, this drugstore duo is a star. The most terrible thing about Pantene Rosewater Shampoo and Conditioner is they aren’t offered in wine barrel-sized vats! 

Yes, they are both that good. I went to Target yesterday and picked up my 4th bottle of each! 
This sulfate-free drugstore conditioner and shampoo is made to moisturize dry strands and tame frizzy hair, and it’been a little miracle for my own grays, which I’ve been growing out for over a year now. My grays, particularly the ones around my bangs and hairline, are completely and completely unruly, and this collection can help to smooth down the noodle strands which stick up at all kinds of weird angles. 


This ’s the kicker: the conditioner and shampoo tame the crazies without weighing my strands down. 


I have ever liked most hair products designed to defrizz and smooth because they generally leave a noticeable residue. And I don’t like it when my hair looks and feels like it’s covered in “stuff. ” Maybe not a lover of horizontal helmet head, ya know? 


Though these work well, they don’t even abandon a thick residue behind. Just smooth strands with a great deal of volume, lift and movement. 
Plus they odor good too! They’ve a fantastic faint rose fragrance. 

FYI, in case you’d prefer to get just the shampoo or the conditioner separately, they’re about $8-9 each at Target (8-oz. Jar ). Pantene also sells a boxed set with both for $12.99. 
Your friendly neighbourhood beauty addict, 

Long lasting, intensely sour and easy to apply 

Dude, this long-lasting black liquid liner is SO GOOD, and it’s only 10 dollars in sincere.com! 
How do I love thee, Honest Beauty Liquid Eyeliner? Let me count the ways… 

1. Concentrated 

Irrespective of the fact that it only comes from a single dimensional black shade, it’s black and deep like the most gorgeous black cat fur, and it doesn’t even have some blue undertones in any way. 

2. Durable 

It isn’t very water-proof, but it’s very water resistant and long lasting (also doesn’t transfer). I’ve been sporting it all summer long. 

3. Flawless 

Available in a tube with a wand which has a long, flexible felt suggestion that’s absolutely foolproof to use. The wand is just the right length to perfectly cradle in my paw, and the dainty felt suggestion draws crisp thin and thick lines equally well. Typically, I wouldn’t think about drawing with liquid lining when I’m hurrying through a fast face, but I may do it with this one. 

A matte Profound black 

4. Flexible 

Thin lines, thick lines, yummy flicks, big ol’ bat wings — it can do it all. 
And if you love diffused edges like I do (no acute lines, baby!) , the formulation is easy to smudge, too. Just make sure to do your smudging before it stinks, which takes about thirty seconds for lanky lines and a moment for thick ones. 

INGREDIENTS: 

Water (Aqua), Alcohol Denat., Glycerin, Pullulan, Disodium Coco-Glucoside Citrate, Hectorite, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Iron Oxides (CI 77499), Ferric Ammonium Ferrocyanide (CI 77510). 

5. Swift 

In addition, as though it had even more going for it, the fast-setting formulation won’t creep upward into your crease whenever you blink! 
What a gem for only $10! I’m going to wish upon a star for Honest Beauty to add a few more colors, as I’d LOVE a dark brown option (a liquid version of MAC Coffee will be my Disney princess fantasy come true) — ooh! — and a gray for every day looks.

Practical Stuff I Like: The New Baylis & Harding Goodness Natural Hand Washes at Target, a Budget Beauty’s Version of Molton Brown 

From Target.com:

Baylis & Harding Goodness Oud, Cedar & Amber hand wash is motivated by nature with carefully mixed plant based formulas. Using only the best, natural and natural extracts and essential oils to produce a 98% naturally based formulation that’s vegan, 95% biodegradable, packaged in a 100% PCR bottle. Dermatologist approved and made in England with love, Baylis & Harding’s Goodness natural hand wash line can also be dye free, paraben free, silicone free and utilizes a gentle coconut based Surfactants as an alternative to SLES, which makes it SLS/SLES/ales totally free. The various scents are amazingly complex, like you’re using a perfume experience each times you wash your hands. 

By way of example, Oud Cedar and Amber, one of my faves, scents like an expensive, handsome guy driving you to work in his new car with leather seats. Along with the Rose and Geranium immediately transports you to teatime in an English garden booming at the peak of spring. So nothing basic, odor wise, here. Scent notes: Oud, Cedar & Amber: Woody and aromatic with a blend of citrus fruits with herbal notes and strong woody undertone. Lemongrass & Ginger: Top and heart notes of ginger and lemongrass blended with black pepper, citrus and bergamot. Nutmeg and cinnamon add a spicy undertone. 

Rose & Geranium:

A zesty top note of lemon blended with rose, geranium and rich amber. Sea Kelp & Peppermint. Top notes of green, peppermint tea along with sea salt, along with sea kelp and grounded by base notes of cedar and amber. The bevy of bubbles rinse rapidly, leaving your paws squeaky clean and lightly scented. Fantastic things, and super affordable, too. Pack your luggage. Thanks men for sharing where you reside and why you love it yesterday in the comments. I really loved it! Apparently, I have been talking non stop about leaving California enough that El Hub thinks I am pretty serious about it. 

And ya know what?

I know it isn’t going to happen RIGHT THIS SECOND, however I’d love to depart inside the next few years. I do not think I can survive many more seasons of fire without turning into a ball of stress. Not really that anything right now’s normal anyplace. But fire season, at the top of the pandemic, is working my already frayed nerves. Like today, I wanted to take Connor to play in the park, however there are two big fires in 20 kilometers of us, and also the air quality is poor. 

It smells just like a campfire outside. Additionally, on my to-do list this weekend: packing our go luggage in case we’ve to evacuate. Super uncomfortable, however it must be done, because you simply never know residing. I have been utilizing these 2 lists I found on-line as guidelines.
