Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks Review (and Fairy-Tale)

Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks

Once upon a time there was a brand called MAC who carried some really cool makeup remover Q-tip like sticks. The Princess Kelly discovered them and became quite a fan. Then one dark day, far too soon for Princess Kelly, the wicked witch called MACitis Discontinuous came out from her lair and decided to stop making them, leaving people across the land perplexed and saddened.

But then, one sunny day not long after that, Princess Kelly discovered a NEW line of these remover sticks from Almay called Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks. All was right in the world again and they all lived smear and smudge-free forever after.

But really folks, these are SO handy and awesome. Before I used the MAC ones I had never bothered using a simple solution like this before to clean up smudges or the like. In reality the MAC ones were kind of expensive and you could just get a bottle of makeup remover and dip a regular Q-tip into them and get the same results. But you know the drill by now right? I AM LAZY. I do not want to have to reach up into the cabinet where the makeup remover is. And then bend down and stretch over 15 inches to where the Q-tips are. Then I have to dip the Q-tip into the remover, etc. It’s a whole process. Ok I’m exaggerating my laziness a bit, but these are quicker!

Question of the Week


Ok so who’s ready for this weekend? I know I am! It was ROUGH returning to work after being off for 2 months. 5:00 am never gets any easier, sigh.

What are your favorite indoor exercise methods for when the weather starts getting bad?

I am on a quest to start eating better and exercising. I’ve basically been sitting on my ass for two years doing nothing but being on a computer and IT SHOWS. I’ve already cut out nearly all “white carbs”, cut back on other carbs, am eating better and less. I must say within 3-4 days of cutting out carbs (which I adore and are my downfall) my stomach was about 50% flatter with no bloat. It’s really quite amazing. That inspires me to continue!

Milani High Speed Fast Dry Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Milani has some new-ish High Speed Fast Dry Nail Lacquers out that come in eight shimmery finishes. They came out in the summer but are JUST NOW coming to drug stores near me for some unexplained reason.

I would have gotten all of them most likely but the display I saw was ravaged!

  • Purple Rush
  • Instantaneous Blue
  • Racy Green
  • Fast Fuchsia
  • Brisk Orange
  • Violet Dash
  • Yellow Whiz
  • Hot Pink Frenzy

All of these are supposed to be one-coaters, but I found that two suited me best with them all. They definitely dry fast though, which is great!

FingerPaints Merry & Bright Holiday 2011 Collection Swatches & Review


Now that Halloween is over it’s time to REALLY launch into all that is the HOLIDAYS!!!

I for one am more shocked this year than ever that next month is Christmas already. Just last night I was looking at some candles on my coffee table that I switch out to red ones in December, and I thought “I JUST put the red ones back into the garage like 2 months ago”! But nooooo, it was 10 months ago! So strange.

Anyway, that leads me to the FingerPaints Merry & Bright Collection for holiday 2011. This collection of six new colors includes three glitters, two amazing cremes and a shimmery green metallic.
