$11.95 for 120 eyeshadows it just ridiculous. These shadows work great! Honestly, they have MAC level color payoff.

Review – Elizabeth & James Nirvana Black and White Perfume

17 Jan

I was lucky enough to get the last samples from my local Sephora of these cute perfumes.

If you are not familiar, Elizabeth & James is the fashion company owned by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.  Yes, THOSE Olsens.

YOU GOT IT, DUDE!

Anyway, I have been very eager to try these scents.  As I predicted, I liked the Nirvana Black much more than the White.  The White is too floral for me and makes me think of my Grandma.  The Nirvana Black smells like a sexy candle, in a good way.  I really like it – but I am not going to be purchasing it.  The reason for this is that it has no staying power on me.  After about 3 hours its completely gone, and I even made other people smell me -FOR SCIENCE!  For $70 for a 1.7oz bottle, I want staying power.

I really wish it worked for me.  I love the smell and the packaging, but its sadly a disappointment.  Maybe your body chemistry will work better with it, but make sure you go get a sample first.  Sephora makes samples of ANY of their perfumes.  Super handy as all perfumes smell different on different people.

Dupe – Urban Decay vs NYX Setting Spray

9 Jan

Makeup Setting Spray is a must have for anyone who wears makeup!  Seriously.  Rubbing your face off is dumb, stop doing it.  We are here to help you do it for cheap!

Image

We made a post a while back comparing Urban Decay’s setting spray vs E.L.F.  You can read it HERE.   

Image

Let me summarize it for you – the E.L.F one works about the same and is $3. The problem with the E.L.F. is it smells like feet for the first minute of having it on your face.  Kinda gross, right?  That is what drove me to trying the NYX spray.

 

The NYX Setting spray comes in two varieties – Matte and Dewy.  I opted for the Matte as that is finish I most prefer, although I have heard that the dewy one is actually better for dry, Winter skin.

It retails for $7.99, so it’s a bit more expensive than the E.L.F.

The Urban Decay setting spray is $29 – that is a savings of over $20.  SCORE!

The NYX doesn’t smell funky to me, didn’t break me out, makes my face powder look lovely and holds my makeup in place.  Really, it works the same as the Urban Decay – maybe it has a tiny bit less staying power but it’s not worth pay $20 extra IMO.

Cold Weather Gear!

6 Jan

While on the topic of the insane winter chill occurring in Chicago-

In November I was traveling in NYC and stopped by the Uniqlo store in Soho.  Uniqlo makes some of the BEST cold weather gear – at affordable prices.

Their HeatTech line is excellent for creating a base layer when dealing with extreme weather.  I have a couple tank tops, leggings and tights and I have been living in them this winter.

The fabric is moisture wicking and retains body heat.  I guess the oils they weave into the fibers actually work with your own perspiration to help warm you.  Sounds expensive right?  Nope.   The socks are amazing.  They work almost as well as my incredibly thick SmartWool socks and feel like any normal, thin crew sock.  It’s space age magic! 

The Heattech leggings and tights are thin.  The leggings are see-thru so don’t expect them to cover your bum.  They are SUPER soft and cozy.  Great for wearing under pants or under skirts.

Thanks to Uniqlo, I now own the best leggings I have ever owned (aside from Black Milk, but that’s Apples to Oranges.) The Uniqlo Legging Pants are freaking amazing.  They look like jeans, but you can go to an all-you-can-eat Brazilian Steak House and still be comfortable wearing them after gorging yourself.  Trust me.  I know things.  Also, they are under $20.Image
