Paula’s Choice Empties!

Paulas Choice Empties

Remember back in May when I wrote a post talking about my first-ever experience with some of the Paula’s Choice products? Well now I have a final wrap-up and “empties” post for ya!

I was sent 9 products to try out initially and while I really genuinely like all of them, for me it came down to the 5 above that I will be re-purchasing on my own. They include the Resist Optimal Results Hydrating Cleanser, Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment, Weekly Resurfacing Treatment, Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum and Resist Barrier Repair Moisturizer.

Chanel Le Vernis Vert Obscur

Chanel Vert Obscur

Chanel Le Vernis Vert Obscur is from the Collection Les Automnales aka Fall 2015 Collection and it’s limited edition.

This was a shade I hemmed and hawed over online for quite a bit before deciding, oh what the hell, let’s spend $27.00 on a polish that is almost certainly going to look black. And yeah, it pretty much does. Le sigh. If you look at the Chanel site where I got it and look at their photo, it looks pretty obviously green, but their colors online are always way off from the actual shade.

Cirque Colors Metropolis for September 2015

Cirque Colors Metropolis Collection for September 2015

Cirque Colors Metropolis for September 2015 is here!

After a short break during the summer, they are back this fall with three new, permanent shades for September. In case you forgot or weren’t aware, all the colors in the Metropolis line are creme shades and inspired by New York City. All of these had a really great formula and covered perfectly over a ridge-filling base coat with just two coats for me.

LUSH Cup O’ Coffee Face And Body Mask

LUSH Cup O' Coffee Face and Body Mask


LUSH Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask isn’t quite the same kind of morning pick-me-up as an actual cup o’ coffee, but it sure is close!

This new mask for fall is rich, strong and smooth – like a cup of coffee should be. It’s vegan and made with fresh ground coffee, kaolin and agave syrup. It has a very nice strong coffee smell, which I happen to love. It looks a little…shall we say, questionable, but once you get past that and get to the smearing it all over your skin part, it’s pretty cool.
