New Purchases – Soap and Glory and Simple Micellar Water

23 Sep

A local Walgreens drugstore (thanks Park Ridge, Illinois!!!) has an entire display of Soap and Glory brand.  I was super excited to see this.  Of course, I wanted to buy everything.  However, reason prevailed and I bought one item.

It cost me around $5.00.  With winter coming, I am happy to have this in my beauty collection.

My second purchase was from the brand Simple.

I’ve been wanting to try micellar cleansing water for while, and then this appeared right in front of me.  So of course, I had to buy it.  I heard good things about this brand from other beauty bloggers, so I’m confident I will like this.  It’s marketed as a natural brand, and I like that.  I think I paid less than $10.00 for this bottle.

I can’t wait to do full reviews on these two!

Thanks for reading!

NYX The Natural Shadow Palette – Looks and Review

31 Oct

We’re  fans of NYX here at Fairy Godmother.   We have also been actively searching for a suitable dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palettes.

UD is pretty amazing with great colors, so this quest hasn’t been easy.

However, in our quest we have have found some great products.  One of these is the NYX Natural Shadow Palette.  It’s a scaled down version of the Nakeds, sort of reminds me of Naked Basics.

NYX is $7.00

Urban Decay is $27.00

I wore this on separate occasions this week.  I also wanted to show how well and long this wears through the day.  I used the NYX HD Eye Shadow Base in addition to the eye shadows.

AMPM

Fun fact – I never realized how more tired my eyes look in the PM after a full day of office work.  Bleah.

This was a smokier look.  I also did a more neutral look:

My thoughts –

If you are looking for a natural/neutral eye shadow palette, take a chance on NYX.  The shadows wear very well and long, the pigment and color payoff is great, they blend great with the exception of one of the shades.  The first and lightest shade comes out a bit chalky on me.

Also, it’s $7.00

First Empties Post!

16 Aug

All the beauty bloggers and vloggers always do an Empties post, so why shouldn’t Your Fairy Godmother.

We use stuff too 🙂

I have two (yes TWO) Dr. Who lunchboxes because I am a fanatic.  As you know, one is my mani kit, and the other is my Empties kit.

I will admit, I got really excited when I finally had enough empties to do post.  On first glance, I use a lot of lotion.

Yeah, I went there….because this movie is freaking fantastical!

Ok, so let’s see what I used 😉

Julep Beach Tonic was probably my favorite item from my Empties.  I loved this smell and it was so perfect for summer.

100% Pure as my second fave, and I loved this scent for night time.  It was Coconut, and it was so light and relaxing.

Bath and  Body Works in Rasberry.  So yummy and perfect for spring and summer. I layered it with the corresponding body spray  .

Mountain Ocean Skin Trip was another organic lotion in Coconut.  It was nice, but too light for my dry skin.

Apotheke Coconut Jasmine Perfumed After Bath Tonic.  This paired nicely with my coconut scented lotions.  I guess I really liked coconut this summer!

Argan Oils Face & Body Serum.   I wanted to use this on my face, but ended up allergic.  So I used it on my hair and it seemed to really moisturize it during the winter. I will probably repurchase this again.

And I retired a pair of fake lashes.  I think I wore them since New Years Eve, it was time for a new pair sometime in April.
Elf Lashes for $1.00!!!!!   Seriously.  Go.Get.You.Some.  I know we blogged about these before.  They are so good.
What products have you used up lately????
