Yes to Coconut Hydrate & Restore Review

Yes to Carrots Coconut Hydrate & Restore

You’ve probably heard of Yes to Carrots, but have you heard of Yes to Coconut? I hadn’t until I saw these items in the drugstore and knew I was going to be alllll over them.

These products are under the umbrella of the “Yes to” company, which also includes Yes to Blueberries, Yes to Tomatoes, Yes to Cucumbers and Yes to Grapefruit. The coconut line includes an Ultra Light Spray Body Lotion, Head-to-Toe Restoring Balm, Cleansing Wipes, Polishing Body Scrub, Hand & Cuticle Cream, Eczema Relief Spray, Oil Body Wash, Curl Defining Hair Smoother, Ultra Moisture Shampoo, Ultra Moisture Conditioner, Cooling Lip Oil and Naturally Smooth Lip Balm. Lucky for me my store didn’t have most of these items in yet or I would have bought way more because I am a coconut aficionado!

So why coconut? Well this is what they say “Coconut (Cocos nucifera) is one of nature’s most multi-tasking offerings, rich in essential vitamins.Coconut oil is light, nongreasy and exceptionally emollient.” Plus, it smells so good!

MAC Artificially Wild for Fall 2014

MAC Artificially Wild

MAC Artificially Wild for fall 2014 is a small collection filled with subtle nude-ish, neutral shades for lips, eyes and face.

Upon first glance I thought “how boring”. But after seeing some of the items in person I kind of changed my mind. There is something a little refreshing to me about understated, neutral makeup now. More than ever I am into less intense shades, especially for my eye shadow, and so the two shades I received were perfect for me.

The collection includes 5 Lipsticks, four Lipglasses, three Lip Pencils, four Eye Shadows, three Powder Blushes and three Cream Colour Bases.

Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stain

Hard Candy All Glossed Up Sand Castle, Fair Lady

Hard Candy All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stain in Sand Castle and Fair Lady came out for summer 2014, but I think they would work really well in the fall with a smoky eye.

These fatty crayon-like pencils combine both gloss and stain properties. They are shiny, slightly staining and they feel really smooth and soft going on. The have a silicone base, which is what helps with that silky feeling. You don’t ever need to sharpen them either, just twist up (or down) from the bottom.

There are eight shades in all in this line which include:

  • Cupcake (light pink)
  • Pout (bright pink)
  • Chic (pink/brown)
  • Mauvelous (mauve)
  • Red Minx (red)
  • Fair Lady (new)
  • Tickled Pink (new)
  • Sand Castle (new)
