My latest post on Now Smell This is a review of LUSH’s limited edition So White Shower Gel and Yog Nog Soap. You can read it here.
Well, my infatuation with Guerlain cosmetics continues, so I thought I’d post another lipstick review. Pinky Groove is a shade from the revamped KissKiss line, launched in late summer 2014. Like many shades in the KissKiss collection, it has a silly-sounding name but it’s a beautiful color. The official product shot (above) is very close to the actual product, but I took a few photos of my own nevertheless…
I recently happened to visit Jersey City’s 6th Borough Market, an outdoor event offering crafts, antiques, vintage clothing, and interesting food, all locally made or locally sourced. I stopped by Almonde Botanicals table, where I couldn’t help noticing this display of powdered facial scrubs packaged in salt shakers, and since Fall is a good time to make adjustments in skincare before Winter arrives and takes its toll, I picked up Almonde’s Mocha Facial Exfoliant to take home with me.
Most of my makeup these days falls into one of two categories: fancy-pants (Guerlain) or cheap-and-cheerful (Burt’s Bees, Wet ‘n’ Wild). I don’t know what this says about me.
In any case, at the latter end of the spectrum, I’m unable to resist going into Tony Moly whenever I pass this shop in Manhattan’s Koreatown. My latest purchase was Panda’s Dream Brightening Eye Base, one of several items in the Panda’s Dream eye-care line.
Why Panda’s Dream? Because pandas have big dark circles around their eyes (duh!) and, apparently, because these products contain bamboo shoot extract.
