July Hit and Miss List

July 2014 Hit and Miss List

Happy end of July, folks! Not going to go on and on about time flying because it’s been said to death but you know what I mean. I’ve been using a number of new products for the past few months and since a few of them have finally been used to their very last drop, this is as good a time as any to share those empties as well.

Alrighty, let’s get started with my July’s Hit List!

Bloggie Wednesday: What’s In My Phone?

Bloggie Wednesday: What's In My Phone?

Happy hump day, folks!

First of all, thank you so much for your input in last week’s Bloggie Wednesday topic where I was struggling with disclosure of affiliate links on individual blog posts vs. just a Disclaimer page. A lot of you suggested small buttons at the top of the page, which is something Temptalia has on her website. I think that’s a great idea as it’s unobtrusive yet still mentions if the post has affiliate links or not. This is something I’m currently looking into. I’m putting my coding hat on!

Anyway today I thought I’d do something a little fun and sticky beaky. Last week, I showed you what’s in my bag (oh and there’s a giveaway somewhere for you).

I’ve used a lot of cream blushes and a couple of blush mousses (remember the ones by Maybelline yonks ago?) but never one that looked as bright and as, er, moussey as this. The shade 01 in Painted Love reminds me very much for LUSH’s Santa’s Lip Scrub. The red is incredibly vibrant and in store, it just screamed “BUY ME!“. So I did!

Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment: Facials In A Can?

Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment

I must say that I’m quite partial to gimmicky, er, gimmicks. Even though I’m usually sceptical to most of the outrageous claims of these products, my curiosity hasn’t killed the cat yet so I’m happy to satisfy it any way I can.

I’ve heard of Kate Somerville for a while now but haven’t tried any of her products until about a few months ago when I saw the DermalQuench Liquid Lift used in a video by Rachel Talbott. A facial in a spray can, you say? It piqued my interest enough to check it out at Mecca Cosmetica. It looked pretty intriguing so I decided to get it and try it out at home.
