Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear® Talc-Free Mineral Lip Sheen in Quartz ($7.95)

What I liked: It comes in a hand-dandy lip tube with the applicator being a curved plastic “lipstick shape.”  It’s convenient to apply on-the-go and when you don’t have a mirror nearby. I found the sheen that it gives you to be pleasant, nothing frosty or over-the-top, which makes it a great gloss for everyday wear or just to add glossiness to any lipstick. The shade I tried was “Quartz,” which is obviously a sheer, non-color option.  I can’t speak for intensity of the other variations (five colored ones) and whether they add much color to lips or not.

What I disliked: There was nothing really that I disliked, but I find that it doesn’t meet a need that I have, which is why it is just so-so.  The price seems a little high to me, for a drugstore gloss, that really just adds a touch of shimmer/glossiness.

If you were using Urban Decay’s Honey eyeshadow, what look would you create with it? What shadows would you use? What would you use on cheeks? Anything added to the lips?

June Jacobs Better Love Naturel Eau de Parfum ($90.00)

For 2008, June Jacobs wants to go eco-friendly, and they reformulated their Better Love scent to be more “Naturel.” I hate to say it, but I would never wear this scent. I found it cloying, overly smoky with a heady mix of nutmeg, and just not something I would see myself wearing. I put it to the boyfriend-sniff-test, which evoked a response of, “It smells like old lady.” Since I’m 21, that is mostly definitely NOT the fragrance I want to keep on my shelves! Best part about it? The packaging is simple and elegant. Unfortunately, the scent just isn’t for me, but I would love to hear your thoughts on it if you’ve had the chance to check it out!

Notes include: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Rose, Jasmine, Pink Pepper, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cream, Cedar, Musk, and Amber.

SCENARIO: I can’t afford to get a manicure/pedicure at a salon often–maybe once or twice a year–so how can I do it myself? It seems like my polish is all over the place when I do it, and it never stays on for very long!
