Super simple, super easy neutral eyes! Really! I hardly used any product to get this look, so I really do mean it when I say simple!
You will need the following…
- Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral beige), Bamboo eyeshadow (light beige-brown), Texture eyeshadow (medium reddish brown), Shroom eyeshadow (neutral highlighter), Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner (brown), Plushlash mascara (black)
- Cheeks: NARS Mata Hari (dark dusty plum-rose)
- Lips: Sweetie lipstick (medium pink), Red Devil lipglass (coral-red)
- Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush), 129 (dense blush brush)
- Substitutes: Red Devil = Lychee Luxe
Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. On the lid, apply Bamboo eyeshadow using the 239. Darken crease with Texture eyeshadow using the 239. Sweep Shroom underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Bourbon 24/7 Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes. Sweep apples of cheeks with NARS Mata Hari blush using the 129. Apply Sweetie lipstick to lips, and then top with Red Devil lipglass for color and shine.

Revolution Organics All-Over Body Balm ($28.00) has become a staple in my household. I don’t really seek out organic products, because to be honest, I don’t have issues with the majority of my regular products, so why go after organic? But occasionally there are products that fall under the organic umbrella that appeal to some need or desire I have–as it was in this case.
This All-Over Body Balm is an excellent tool for curing dry skin–wherever it is. I love to use it on my lips and the area right above my upper lip (which for some reason tends to be ridiculously dry!), but it is perfect to use on your nose if you’re suffering from a cold (though use a q-tip or clean fingers!) or allergies (like me). It’s much larger than a lip balm tube, probably about the size of a quarter, but it’s still really portable. I’ve been using this for MONTHS now, and there’s still plenty left, which makes the $28 price tag a little easier on your wallet’s conscience.
Revolution Organics advertises that this product has at least 22 uses, and I’d buy it, since it’s just a general moisturizing balm, basically. I will say, however, that I personally won’t use it on my face *and* on say… oh, my feet! Just ew! The brand is all about using USDA certified organic ingredients in their products, which makes me feel like they really are organic and not just trying to get the buzz word in. The product’s “key ingredients” are listed as organic cocoa butter, organic shea butter, organic beeswax, organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, and organic apricot oil.
For a list of 22 uses as listed by Revolution Organics… Continue reading →

If you could revamp MAC Lipstick, what would you change? What would you keep the same? How would you make it an even better product?
Liz Earle Orange Flower Hand Wash (6.7 oz for $19.50) is a low-lather liquid hand soap lightly scented with an herbal/floral blend of notes with a touch of orange. The hand wash contains orange flower water, as well as seven pure essential oils, and its foaming agents are derived from corn syrup and coconut oil. Liz Earle has managed to create a more organic/natural product that doesn’t stink of compost nor lacking in quality. Too often I’ve found brands capitalize on using buzz words like natural or organic, but then the products themselves don’t deliver.
In a household with sixty-pounds of overeager puppy (well, I suppose, he’s just a dog now!), I’m always washing my hands. It’s really essential for whatever hand cleansing product I use to do everything it can to moisturize or rehydrate my paws throughout the day. Since using Liz Earle’s hand wash, I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in my skin’s texture and roughness. My hands don’t feel dry, and they’re certainly better than they usually are. This is most likely one of the better hand soaps I’ve used, all things considered.
The only thing that gets me is the price, because the idea of paying just about $20 for hand soap seems ludicrous. I can appreciate that they’ve designed the pump to only pump out all you need (which is a very small amount), at the very least. If the price were less, I’d repurchase it without a second thought–as it stands, I’m not entirely sure. It’ll depend on how long it lasts overall, I suppose! Get yours at LizEarle.com.
