Question of the Week: Do you use foot lotion or cream? If so, what are current favorite products?

My Answer: I don’t really use one consistently but I tend to use either Fortune Cookie Soap Whipped Creams or The Body Shop Body Butters.

Massive Urban Decay Giveaway!

Urban Decay Giveaway

Good morning and a happy Friday to you!

I didn’t get it together in time for a Friday Favorites post this week, so I thought, why not do a giveaway? And I just happen to have a ton of Urban Decay items sitting around that really need a new home. :D

I apologize that this will be for US/Canada only as the shipping cost would be too much elsewhere. But never fear, most of my giveaways are open worldwide so I’ll catch you International folks next time around!

OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System

OPI Infinite Shine Lacquer

OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System is a new line of gel shades which don’t need an LED light curing system or any soak-off removal to get them off.

They are applied using a three-step system: first, apply Infinite Shine Primer (Step 1) to prevent staining and increase lacquer durability. Next, select one of 30 shades (Step 2) and paint two thin, even coats for richly-pigmented, vivid color. Finally, finish with Infinite Shine Gloss (Step 3), which features a state-of-the-art gel polymer formula that cures in natural light. Then you can remove them using whatever nail polish remover you choose. They claim to last up to 10 days, which for me would be a miracle!

Pixi H20 Skintint & Full Cover Foundation Brush

Pixi H20 Skintint Tinted Face Gel

Pixi H20 Skintint isn’t a new item but it works really well with their brand new Full Cover Foundation Brush and Undercover Crayon for spring!

H20 Skintint ($24.00) is a water-based tinted face gel which comes in three shades (Cream, Nude and Warm.) It has this great cooling feeling when you apply it and it feels very nicely hydrating. It has a fairly sheer formula but it definitely helps hide pores and small flaws and makes the skin look more even.

The new Full Cover Foundation Brush ($15.00) has densely packed super soft bristles which helps create a natural looking finish and doesn’t waste product. It works with foundation, concealer and powder-based makeup. It worked really well for me with the H20 Skintint and left no streaks on my face. It blended the product in really well without soaking all of it up.

Undercover Crayon ($14.00) is also new and it’s a brightening and concealing pencil that includes peptides to plump lines, wild rose to nourish and licorice root to help fade dark areas. It comes in Perk-Up Peach, which cancels out darkness and in three other shades (Cream, Nude and Warm) to perfect your complexion.
