Lip Balm:

Nothing better than soft, smooth, kissable lips right?? Okay, maybe a few things, but I love soft lips and I love lip balm!! I came across a site named They have Over 400 Flavors of Natural Lip Balm to Feed Your Addiction! First let me say the balm is very smooth, natural, and feels great on the lips. She has so many great flavors and scents that hard to narrow down a list. I have eight of these. I purchased the 6 pk bundle and I had to have Red Velvet Cake Balm so I ordered it extra. You get a free lip balm if you spend $15.00.

I love her mission statement. (The business major in had to pay attention to it! lol) I will list it below. I have:
**Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream - not one of my favs. I expected something else. It's just okay.
**Mixed Mystery - I like this! This was my free balm with purchase.
**Lavender Pound Cake - I didnt think it would be that much Lavender to this one. If you dont care for Lavender, you might want to skip this one It's Okay.
**Dulce De Leche - different but nice
**Vanilla Buttercream - It's cool.
**Strawberry & Chocolate - Again, it's cool.
**Bananas Foster - I like this one. (I like eating Bananas Foster also.)
**Red Velvet Cake - I love love love Red Velvet cake so this is my favorite out of hem all.

Check it out.

Her mission statement:
My Lip Stuff's ultimate mission is to end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land. In the process, we strive to end animal testing and save the environment with chemical-free natural products!

Is this a tall order? Absolutely. But we are dedicated- and are willing to start small. If we all do our part our combined efforts will make a big impact on the future of the planet, & just maybe we'll find a cure for something-- even if it is just chapped lips!

My Lip Stuff's products are NEVER tested on animals & contain natural (from the earth) ingredients that are skin loving. Our products do NOT contain any harsh ingredients- and NEVER contain petroleum or mineral oil! We also do what we can by using recycled (and recyclable) materials whenever possible, and even using "green power" (power from renewable resources such as wind, water, or landfill gases-instead of oil). We also Drive a Hybrid, and use only fluorescent lighting (no incandescent bulbs here!).
In the end, We strive to create a natural product made from only the highest quality ingredients, with the least amount of impact on the environment and its inhabitants, for the lowest possible price.

Wet n Wild Makeup

I know some of you are thinking, Wet n Wild?? Are you serious Tee?!?! I happened to see an article on that had a list of the best and worst Wet n Wild products. I am not a fan of WW products, but I viewed the list anyway. Since the products are BOGO Free this week at Walgreens (psst...GO), I tried the Silk Finish blush, the Mega Eyes eyeshadow trios, and the Glass Gloss Lip Gel. I actually like all of these products. The blush is beautiful, the lip gloss is smooth, and the eye shadow didn't crease. I only used the eyeshadow once. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to use my UDPP. The shadow lasted all day. I can't wait to try it with my UDPP. Wet n Wild....who would have though!

*I like the blush the best. Anyone who knows my love for makeup knows I am a blush junkie. This blush is very pigmented and a little goes a long way. I have Pearlescent Pink (I haven't tried this one yet), Heather Silk (Haven't tried this color either), Berry Shimmer (pretty and only takes a very little!), Mellow Wine (a beautiful beautiful shade.)

Don't forget the BOGO free sale this week at Walgreens!! Every product listed above was only $2.99. What better way to try the product!

Flirt Pressed Powder

During a recent trip to Kohl's, I stopped at the cosmetic counter. I saw this pressed powder called Love & Matteness Oil-Free Pressed Powder. Well, being the oily skin type, I had to try it out. I tried it in the store and was really impressed. I decided to grab one and checkout. I reached down to pick up my color and Oh My Goodness, it wasn't there!! So I started this vicious cycle for about 2 or 3 weeks looking for this product. Called both Kohl's stores in my area and looked online. No success. So, I was at the point where I was calling the store every other day to look for this stuff. Yesterday, I went in and decided to look again even though I called about 3 hours prior and was told, "No, we do not have it in." I take a look and my heart sinks.....Still, No pressed powder in my color. I was moved to check behind the other colors and I be darned if I didn't find 3 in my color!!!

Anyway, I wore it last night and today. So far, I am loving it. My color is 09 Bodacious Beige. The coverage and color is very good. Look for it the next time you are Kohl's (or visit their website) and give it a try.

LUSH Products - Bubble Bar 'Ma Bar Bubble Bar'

Lush is truly one of my weaknesses. I could go on and on and on about my favorite products. But I tried their lip balms on my last trip and they are really nice. They are very smooth on the lips and the taste is not overpowering. The soap are so darn lovely. I love so many of the soaps. I just revisited Honey I Shrunk The Kids and this soap feels heavenly on the skin. But I digress, I come to discuss another lush Product.

The Bubble Bars are so darn lovely. I have Ma Bar Bubble Bar and it smells lovely! It doesn't smell like Chocolate or Toffee to me. Just a really lovely smell and the bubbles are very nice. The sales rep said the bar can be broken up and used for at least three uses.

Smashbox Shadows Depotted

Here are the Smashbox eyeshadows depotted in a MAC Palette. I love them sooo much better depotted. Smashbox has the screw on lids. That gets tiresome. (If you want to see how to depot Smashbox shadows, look up frenchtoastvegan on youtube.)

I know for sure Milani, Jane, NYX, and Smashbox will fit in the MAC palette. These are the only ones I have tried. I have heard that many other will fit.

*Fixing broken shadows will be my next project.

Depotting H.I.P

I have H.I.P. eyeshadows that I depotted last year and put them in tins. Well, the tins weren't practical and I never used them because they were out of site and out of mind. There is a great video on Youtube on how to depot them if you need help. (Look up EmsyJay)

Fast forward to the present. MizzBrown (Thanks bunches!) posted on using palettes by Japonesque to hold the HIP shadows. I love the palettes so much better than the tins. The palettes can be ordered from Amazon. (Search Japonesque)

Since I was in a depotting mood, I decided to give my Smashbox shadows a try too. They fit like a charm in the MAC palette. I am posting pics of those also. I still have 4 HIP shadows to depot but I am not in the mood to depot anytime soon. I am trying to decide which color to depot since I only have one spot left. I think I will depot Charisma or Sassy and leave the metallic shadow untouched. Tell me your thoughs.

I almost forgot, Prestige shadows fit in the Japonesque palettes. It's crazy that I had never used them until today. All because they were neatly packed away. Off to enjoy my shadows. :^) Happy Depotting

Bronzer: Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer

I posted about a bronzer and had every intention on getting the Lorac Bronzer from Sephora but hadn't made time to visit the mall. Today I went to Macy's and decided to stop by Clinique since they are having 'with gift' going on right now. I was walking around the counter thinking, "Whatever could I possibly need from Clinique?" Honestly, NOTHING!!! The bronzer popped in my head and the saleslady, who looked just like Reese Witherspoon's big sister, said Clinique had some really nice bronzers.

Well, I tried two and feel in love with the second and didn't look at the other colors. I went outside to see the color in natural sunlight and it was beautiful. I am in love!!! I will enjoy wearing this bronzer this summer. **The color I purchased is Sunkissed.

Oily Skin: Moisturizer by Estee Lauder

I have crazy extreme oily skin. I use to skip moisturizing even though I knew EVERYONE should moisturize their skin. I am one of those 'oil slick' type of oilys. After many years and many dollars wasted, I found the perfect moisturizer for my only skin. It is Estee Lauder's Clear Difference Advanced Oil-Control Hydrator. I also have sensitive skin and this didn't break me at all. If you purchase this product, make sure you get the one picture here and not the other one containing SPF. <--- It left me oily.

This can be found at any Estee Lauder counter. I happened to pick this one up in Dillards. Give it try. I promise it's worth the money. (and I am always looking for the best value.)

*I use another moisturizer also that I will blog about a little later.
