Sally's Girl Eyeshadow "Blue Marine"

When I picked up this shadow I was so excited! In the pan, this color looks like a duo-chrome blue/green. When you actually put it on your lid...ehhh...looks like a chalky blue. Usually I do really like these Sally's Girl eyeshadows, but this one is definitely one that I regret buying.

How To: Depot Lorac Single Eyeshadow

I kept trying to figure out how to depot Lorac shadows and I couldn't find anyone that has posted about it...well here's help!

 First, you want to take a knife (I used a steak knife) and push this in between the bottom of the pan and the top. With a little push, this should pop right out.
 Anddd...it will look like this. Once it is out, you can tell that the plastic is really thick.
 After that, I took a lighter and put it underneath the pan to get the glue loose. I went in between the lighter and pushing it with a knife. You have to be very careful because you don't want to overheat the plastic.
 Once you get the plastic out, you get your pan. As you can see, there is a LOT of glue left on the pan. You can clean this off if you want, but I just kept it like that.

As for magnets, I just used refrigerator magnets and cut them to fit on the pan. Actually, the Lorac shadows fit perfectly in MAC palettes...so that's what I did! :)

Let me know if you have any questions and I hope this helped!

e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip "Spotlight"

I originally purchased this product because I thought it would be a great highlight, and it is. It's gorgeous on the skin as you can see by the bottom picture. The only thing that I don't like is that it is very watery and sticky. When you try to apply it, you kind of have to mix it on your hand first before you can apply it to where you want it. Once it is on where you want it, it kind of feels sticky, almost like it never dries. Truthfully, this product was thrown in the trash and I will not repurchase this!

My EOS lip balms are going in the trash!

I'm probably like everyone else because I loved EOS lip balms. However, a couple months ago I started to get VERY chapped lips. Of course, I kept applying EOS because I thought it would make it better. Not only were my lips chapped, but I had a lot of dryness around my mouth as well. I stopped using my EOS balms and used vaseline instead. It took a good month or two to completely heal up.

Now, my lips were perfect yesterday! Last night, I applied EOS before I went to bed...when I woke up...the rash was back! I know I'm not allergic to anything in this balm because I've used organic products before. I know I'm not the only one with this problem either. I haven't seen anyone post about it unless they were wondering if that is what is causing it. Well, now I know this is what it is...these babies are going in the trash ASAP!

Has anyone else have this problem?!

I have another allergic reaction post - HERE!
