I’ve been wearing the Nyx Butter Lipstick in Little Susie
since the weekend, every morning even though without school I have nothing to do I’m still putting it on…ha. I received this in one of my Ipsy bags, & honestly, if it wasn’t for Ipsy, I would probably would have never tried this product.
I’m usually a strictly gloss girl, but this butter lipstick delivers lipstick like pigmentation with high shine and hydration. The formula melts perfectly into my lips & seriously, look at this color, it screams summer fun.
In reading various reviews on this product, some users said it wasn’t very long lasting. I have mixed feelings on this, the first time I used it I thought it lasted really well. Thennn, the next time I used it, not so much- I could still see some of the pigment but overall it looked very dull after just about 2 hours. I really think it just depends on the person, how much you’re exfoliating, & if there are any other products on your lips.
Not only is this color fantastic, but there are 22, yes 22, other colors the Nyx Butter Lipstick comes in…I can definitely see myself purchasing some fall colors soon.
I’m super lucky I have no under eye issues at the moment, no dark circles or puffiness…I’m not sure how I’ve gotten to be so lucky, but I’m riding this wave as long as humanly possible.
I’m obsessed with Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum, I’ve been using it for years. I’ve even gotten my mom & a few friends hooked on it. Butttt, it does come with a $29 price tag, which isn’t ideal, but always seems so damn worth it..le sigh.
My back-up eye treatment is Simple’s Revitalizing Eye Roll-On
, which at $11 is a bit more wallet friendly with about the same product impact & results. The application process is the same, the cool metal roller ball soothes under eyes with Pro-vitamin B & Cucumber Extract to combat puffiness and that tired
I really enjoy using Simple products, I’m a big fan of their Cleansing Facial Wipes, because their products are hypoallergenic and perfect for those with sensitive skin. I also find their products very refreshing, probably because of their great natural ingredient choices.
The Revitalizing Eye Roll-On is so refreshing and cooling, perfect for both morning as a “waker uper” and evening as a relaxing “omg I’m so tired where did the day go” eye gel. It absorbs quite well & I never have that sticky feeling, which can happen easily with under eye creams/ roller balls.
If you’re looking for a budget friendly eye treatment that delivers on it’s promises, then think about trying out Simple’s Revitalizing Eye Roll-On, you can find it pretty much anywhere & I guarantee you won’t be disappointed, it’s the perfect staple product.
I spend a fair amount of money on my skincare routine, but one area that I seriously save on is my eye makeup remover! I’ve been using CVS’s Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover a long time now and I love it. It seriously gets the job done on stubborn eye liner, waterproof mascara, and heavy shadows for only $5.99 a bottle.
My main draw to this product is that you don’t feel oily after using it like most eye makeup removers that rely on oil to get the waterproof makeup off. To remove the makeup I soak a big cotton pad and hold it to my eye for about 10 seconds then gently wipe away everything. I don’t wear false lashes so I layer on mascara like crazy so I have to take a lot of extra time to get all of that off, but this remover has always worked best for that!
I’ve used both L’oreal Dermo-Expertise Eye and Lumene Waterproof eye makeup removers and hated them. I don’t like the consistency and I felt like I had to rub and pull to make the makeup come off — totally not good for the sensitive eye area.
Neutrogena makes a similar oil-free eye makeup remover to the CVS brand, but it’s $2 more and honestly they both work the exact same. If you don’t have a CVS near you Target brand Up and Up’s eye makeup remover is exactly like CVS’s (and for a $1 less!!).
It’s super important to take off your eye makeup, and all of it at that. I know it gets annoying to take off so much mascara or eyeliner, but you can seriously damage your lashes if you don’t take that extra minute or two to make sure it’s all off!!
