Mineral Hygienics Eyeshadows


If you’ve been a reader for a while, you know that a couple months ago I got to try a Starter Kit with Mineral Hygienics and I fell in love! Their foundations and concealer was spot on even on my oily complexion and I’m still enjoying those products now! I loved them so much that I couldn’t leave well enough and in the Holiday Spirit, they agreed to send me another present to enjoy and share with you all!

I received my eyeshadows and eyeshadow brush packed up perfectly just like before. Mineral Hygienics doesn’t skimp on the details; in their products, in their ingredients or in their presentation. I always know I’m going to get a product that looks beautiful in the bottle and on my skin πŸ™‚

I chose two colors that I knew would go with just about everything and especially a bold lip πŸ˜‰
Pesto is described as “a bright olive shadow with a touch of green sparkles throughout”. At first, I thought it wasn’t as “bright” as I expected, that was until I swatched it. The lime pop certainly comes through and the dark (almost Emerald) micro glitter in this shadow makes it a true “WOW” color for the winter. I cannot wait to pair this with with an Ugly Red Christmas Sweater. This is going to be EPIC!
Nestle (which just SOUNDS like a cozy Winter color, right?!) is described as “a soft cashmere brown with light coverage and a delicate shimmer”. This color proved to be an amazing, warm wash of color and glamor with even the lightest touch. When packed on, this adds an amazing bronzed look to my blue eyes and it makes them pop and sparkle, it’s really magical. I think this might be my favorite of the two because with this color alone, I often get compliments and people think I spent a lot of time layering and placing my shadow when really, Nestle is my one shadow wonder!

I’m never disappointed with Mineral Hygienics, but these velvet smooth, uber pigmented shadows have me wondering why I even both with other brands!

Have you ever tried Mineral Hygienics? What color do you need in your Winter Wardrobe?

Firmoo- Get FREE Glasses!


I have been seeing a few offers lately for FREE glasses but none of them have been as cute as the pair I picked up from Firmoo. I have to apologize because I’ve been enjoying these glasses SO much that I meant to review them about a week ago, but I’m a slacker πŸ˜‰

I got these beauties in the mail a little over two weeks ago and they are perfect. This pair is actually no longer available and I’m SO sad about that, but below on the product page, they suggest other similar pairs of glasses. These glasses (had I paid for them) only cost $27. For that price, you could buy up to 8 pairs at a local store (without insurance).

I knew how large these glasses were going to be because not only does Firmoo list all the measurements, but there is even a virtual fit option where you can see what the glasses look like on different face shapes. I love this & that made it super easy to find the glasses I wanted.

With my order I also received a matching hard case, a soft carrying case, a cleaning cloth and a repair kit with extra screws. Everything was very well made.

Plus, I think they look pretty flippin’ sweet; if I do say so myself πŸ˜‰ Firmoo is not only affordable BUT they also offer a FREE pair for first time customers. All you do is pay the shipping. Check out that offer HERE.

If you pick up a pair, be sure & stop by and share a photo! I’m dying to see what you guys pick out!! ❀

Fun Find!


I was shopping at Marshall’s this evening, like I often do. On the hunt for some fun bargains!
When I stumbled upon the most awesome nail product I’ve ever seen on sale!

This is Jessica No Shine Finish. Jessica is a nail color company that has been around forever & with good reason!
So, what is “No Shine Finish“? It’s an awesome topcoat that will turn any nail polish you own into a matte color.
It’s genius!

So, I had a pretty, glossy manicure all ready for this, using Rose by Julep.

And after applying the Jessica No Shine Finish. (I left a small stripe on my middle finger) It dries instantly & I just love the way it looks!
This is a great way to expand your polish collection without actually having to do much at all! Matte polish is highly underrated!
This was such a Fun Find & I cannot wait to come up with more creative ways to use this!
