Rigby Reads: September 20, 2011

This semester in school one of the classes I am taking requires me to learn to identify birds by how they look, and how they sound.  This is not all that hard of a task, and simply requires listening to the bird sounds several times.  However, if Rigby is asked, this is torture since he wants to know where these noisy birds are so he can attack them.

I do not usually feature high-end nail polish’s here.  Not that they are not pretty, but because I am cheap.  However The Beauty Look Book has a post on Rococo Nail Apparel’s New Collection.  I may be wanting a few pieces myself.

Miss Natty’s Beauty Diary has a post on a lovely facial serum.  Based on a quick look this serum may be just the thing for me since it fits with all my beauty resolutions.

Fresh Cosmetics Face Luster in Fair Isle

I seem to be getting closer to getting back on track.  You may not notice it since yet again my posts are not up until Wednesday this week.  However, I was completely done with taking pictures by Sunday night which is earlier than I finished taking the pictures last week.  Hopefully if I get the pictures take by mid-day Saturday of next week I will have posts up before Wednesday.

I got this from Sephora a little while back.  I had wanted to look into a setting powder, and had honestly not heard much about Fresh Cosmetics.  At the time all I knew was that they were one of the more ‘natural’ cosmetics out there.  Plus they were a relatively new company at Sephora, and who can resist new?

I would rate this product an 8/10

Stash Statistics: September 2011

As promised I would update you on the size of my stash, what has grown, what categories have shrunk.  That sort of stuff.  In order to make this shorter and easier to read than the original post I am simply going to inform you of which categories have changed.

Products I have used up:

Polish Base Coat (from 3 to 2), Face Wash (from 9 to 5), Tonner (from 2 to 1), Moisturizer (from 4 to 3), Eyeliner (from 14 to 13), Conditioner (5 to 3), Curling Spray (from 3 to 2), Mascara (from 2 to 1).

Products I have Purchased:

Blush (from 23 to 24), Powder Shadow (from 128 to 127), Lipstick (from 15 to 18), Body Wash (from 2 to 5), Nail Polish (from 46 to 56)

Product Amount Corrections:
Concealer (from 8 to 9), Creme Shadow (From 14 to 16)

I am fairly proud of how I did in the last three months.  That being said I still did make more purchases than I would like to have.  I am hopeful that in the next three-month period I will be able to use up more products and make fewer purchases.

Yes to Cucumbers Daily Gentle Cleanser

A few months back, as many of you may remember I went a little crazy with buying face wash.  I am slowly making my way through using up the products, as I use them up.  All of the purchases made at the time were specifically designed for sensitive skin.

I had picked this out since I had been hearing a great deal of positive things about Yes to Carrots.  This is made by the same company but is their line of products for sensitive skin (they also have Yes to Blueberries and Yes to Tomato).

I would rate this product a 7/10

My Skincare Routine: Night

Makeup Remover – I am currently Using Smashbox Cleansing oil.  This has been the first foray in cleansing oil, I switched because I was growing tired of the residue I felt like makeup removing wipes was leaving on my skin.  This is probably the most important step of my evening routine since it makes sure I get all my makeup off.

Eye Makeup Remover – I have been working on a bottle of Bliss Lid + lash wash for a good while now.  I only need a tiny bit of this, but feel a separate eye makeup remover is necessary.  I have very sensitive eyes (even plain water can bother them) and have as of yet had no problems with this eye makeup remover.
