Review: Yes to Carrots Makeup Remover Wipes

I was at Target today about to buy my usual Ponds makeup remover towelettes, when I happened upon a trial size package of Yes to Carrots towelettes. Technically they're Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Cleansing Facial Towelettes.

They removed my makeup well enough, but they weren't textured like my typical Ponds ones, so it took longer. They also stretch in one direction, making it a little tricky to make the wipe last for my whole face. They smell nice, and apparently have lemon and apple as well as blueberries, so that's gotta count for something, right?

Well... the trial size I bought was $2.99 for 8 of them. That's about $0.35 per wipe. The full size package has 30 wipes.... and costs a whopping $20. Holy crap!! That's almost double the price. It would literally be cheaper to buy 4 packages. They're good, not that good, and not better than the Ponds. Its unfortunate because I love my Say Yes To Carrots lip balm. I was hoping these would be super awesome.

I'll stick with Ponds, which have yet to ever let me down. And only cost like $6 for 30.


Stupid fingernails...

For most of my life I've bitten my nails. And then a graphic design client of mine told me about nailtique. I can't sing its praises enough! My nails are weak and they peel easily, but nailtique formula 2 works like a charm.

Until yours nails get a bit too long, and catch on the toilet seat when you're cleaning the litter box....

Yeah, stupid toilet seat split my nail clean off. Awesome. But thankfully with nailtiques it wont take more than a few weeks to grow back.

Still, I'm cranky.

For anyone who wants to know, my current polish is China Glaze, For Audrey. It's apparently Tiffany blue.


Interview Makeup

So I had my interview today. It went well, I'm hoping they'll call me for a second soon. Money to buy things might be nice... Anyway, so here's the look I did. Very simple and clean.

Eyes: Urban Decay Naked Palette Sidecar on most of the lid, Hustler on outer corner, in crease, and along lashline for definition, just a tiny bit. Sin on browbone for hightlight, beautique black liner, very fine right along the lashline, maybelline lash stiletto mascara.

Face: coverfx primer, smashbox foundation, mac concealer, smashbox powder, inglot blush, urban decay setting spray

Lips: soap and glory sexy motherpucker in a neutral pink, mac gloss in Like Venus, a slightly lighter pink.

Happy New Year!!

So, this is the year I fix things wrong in my life. I have a list of resolutions, though I hate to call them that because it just seems so passe. I added a new one today and installed an app on my phone to help. Which is to post in this damn blog at least weekly if not daily. Even if its just quick looks, or thoughts or whatev on beauty.

So... God/dess willing, there'll be a post tomorrow about job interview makeup, since I have an interview tomorrow! In the meantime, check out my nails that I did. Its a little bold for an interview, but I'm a graphic designer and I can get away with stuff like that, lol. Its China Glaze polish in "Breakin'". Its a pretty pumpkin-y orange with just a hint of a gold shimmer. I draw the orange from my logo, which you can see here.
