NYX Color Correcting Concealer Palette – A Review

I love the NYX Color Correcting Concealer palette.  The NYX palette colors are creamy, they blend out with ease, and work well at concealing what they are supposed to conceal. I normally use the e.l.f Flawless Finish foundation, which is a medium coverage foundation, and the color correcting concealers blend very well.  Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 7.49.55 PM.png
I’ve been using color correcting concealers for a long time, and this palette is my favorite. I picked it up at Target for $12.00. There are cheaper palettes out there that do the same darned thing, but I’m a little picky with the brands I allow to go under my eyes, so I styx with nyx. See what I did there?
I do have the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye, but that does NOT work for me. It’s wet and thick and creases and looks like poo¬†poo. Also, it’s mega expensive. Another also, I have wrinkles under my eyes and CANNOT set my concealer with powder. ¬†I was told that Bye Bye Undereye does not need to be set with a powder and that is a Bye Bye Undereye LIE. It’s very tacky feeling on my skin. If it works for you, yay.
The color correcting colors I use the most are the green, peachy/pinky/salmony, and yellow colors.
The green covers any redness. I use this on zits and the lame red dry skin patches scattered across my face.
I use a little of the peachy/pinky/salmony to combat the blue/purple bags under my eyes.
The yellow works to hide the shadow of my undereye bags. I just lightly trace a line along the bags under my eyes.
Once my face looks like a rainbow, I blend in all the concealer colors with my foundation, and apply the rest of my makeup.
If you wear makeup, you should own a color correcting palette, unless you have flawless skin, and if you do, you suck.

Soap and Glory Hand Food and The Righteous Butter – A Review

Soap and Glory Hand Food (and The Righteous Butter)

I have been using these for over a month now and I love them.

I bought a travel size Hand Food from Ulta and loved it so much after a few uses that I went back and bought two regular sized tubes.  I also just recently bought the The Righteous Butter.  If you suffer from dry skin like I do, even eczema, this stuff is AMAZING.  And it smells so good!

I wash my hands a zillion times a day and I need a lotion that can keep my hands moisturized like I don’t wash them a zillion times a day. ¬†Hand Food does exactly that.

From the Ulta website:  A non-greasy hand cream with shea butter, macadamia oil, and marshmallow. Scented with our Original Pink Rose & Bergamot fragrance, combining fresh bergamot, mandarin, rose, jasmine, peach, strawberry, and soft musk & amber base notes for skin that is blissfully clean and silky-soft.

Moving on to The Righteous Butter.  This stuff is also TO DIE FOR.  I use this daily all over my body after my shower.  My skin is so darned soft and it leaves my skin smelling yummy.  I can stick my head down my shirt right now and I can still smell it on my skin from applying it almost 12 hours ago. The Righteous Butter makes my legs so soft.  I can apply it in the morning, and until I shower the next day, my legs are soft and smooth.  With other lotions, I have to constantly reapply to keep my legs from looking flaky.

GET IT.

You can find it online, and at Ulta, select Walgreens, and Targets. ¬†It’s a bit pricey for lotion; Hand Food is $8 for a full sized tube (the travel size is $4) and the The Righteous Butter is $15 (travel size is also $4), but those medicated lotions and other body lotions that promise soft skin at half the price are crap.

Invest in your skin, yo.
